    Let’s see here.

    On Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014, 5 robbers did a “smash-and-grab” in the Cartier store on Fifth Avenue, making off with almost $1 million dollars worth of high-end jeweled watches. They had no qualms about pulling off a heist on one of the best and most-touristed and therefore most-policed avenues in all of NYC.

    On Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, a beggar/pan-handler not only barged onto an MTA bus without paying, but he also methodically pan-handled every passenger and then shot a bus passenger who refused to hand over money.

    All the lefties said that NYC would not return to the “Bad Ole’ Days” just because a left-wing Commie Sandinista mayor — DiBlasio — got elected.

    Looks like the criminals … KNOW OTHERWISE. Just wait till it gets a little warmer in April or so: Squeegee-men at every intersection. And you’d better give them some dollars or else … they’ll SHOOT you (for specifics, see: MTA bus story above).
