Top Cop Gives Good Advice

from this week's Citypaper:

Most murders occur in certain trouble neighborhoods, but police say they can't be everywhere at once to prevent them. "We recommend that people do what we do," says Commissioner Sylvester Johnson. "Stay away from those neighborhoods."

Saw a cartoon in today's Daily Fishwrapper,..I mean, Daily News that showed a "guntoting nut" on a street corner in N. Philly, looking like he was going to s**t his pants.

Really funny, that Daily News.

loved your quote of Johnson -- so in character. My other favorite is on my blog, Land Shark Chronicles.

Okay, here is the full quote from News10, when asked why Philly had so much gun violence:
"At this point, right now, we have over 32,000 people in Philly who have permits to carry (and) actually walk the streets of Philly with a gun. We only have 6,400 police officers. We're outnumbered nearly 5-to-1 with people who are on the streets with guns,"
Commissioner Sylvester Johnson.

So, according to the Commish, legal gun owners are the reason there is so much crime. Astonishing.
