    •  Bratton did, big-time (0+ / 0-)

      And Giuliani appointed Bratton. The fact is, crime plummeted during Giuliani's Administration. You can argue he had nothing to do with that, but it's a weak argument. Chief Executives get credit or blame for what happens under their watch.

      •  Crime dropped in every major American (0+ / 0-)

        city during the same time.  It was about the economy.  And if Giuliani hadn't put the control center in the World Trade Center, and if he had given the firefighters proper radio communication devices, a lot of people would be alive now.

        •  Your points are obviously true, except (0+ / 0-)

          crime plummeted to a much higher degree here than in other parts of the country. We will have to agree to disagree that changes in policing had no positive effects. Anyway, you seem to regret there isn't more crime, which is just idiotic.
