@Calls'em you sound as if you have no clue about the situation in NYC. 6000 cops would drain the finances of NYC with their unbelievablely generous pension.

CORRECTION: The occasional tragic murder like this aside, most of the bump up in crime and shootings in NYC are because it is down 6-8,000 cops. If there were more cops driving around in bad neighborhoods, there WOULD be less crime. Period, end of story. Bloomie should let go 5,000 bad teachers and hire 6,000 cops and 500 firemen and EMS staff.
