Once upon a time there were some New York thugs with guns. The thugs came on shooting at people they were trying to rob in an auto repair shop. One of the victims was a cop. The cop exchanged fire, got shot in the shoulder, dropped his Glock.
Also present was a school safety guard who picked up the cop’s dropped weapon and chased the thugs away. Two of the thugs were shot. Now the school safety guard is being prosecuted.
In Mayor Bloomberg’s town, the honest people are criminalized. The thugs are granted easy pickings, certain that they can wreak havoc without interference.
