the big apple

Under the Hoover-vaccum money-suck "leadership" of Mayor Bloomberg, New York City has invented all kinds of ways to levy fines against citizens for bullshit reasons. But this is pretty despicable.

When your government goes after Girl Scouts for selling cookies, you need a new government.


Well, what did you expect? They can't put a dent into major crime, so they figured they'd set their sites on something they can be successful at....hasseling the Girl Scouts! Way to go NYC! Heh.

Good going NYPD. What a way to take out those tough Girl Scout cookie criminals.

The NYPD takes a lot of guff for bullshit like this. The fact of the matter is that they're one of the best police forces in the country, and anyone who thinks they haven't "put a dent" in major crime never visited the City prior to 1995 or so.

The difference is leadership. Giuliani turned the City into Disneyland from the rotting cesspool it was prior to his tenure. Bloomy has been surfing on his wave and praying it all holds together, without actually doing anything, save for your typical RINO asswitery.

Bottom line: It's not the cops. It's the idiots giving them their orders.

Harrassing harmless citizens is government's way of making itself feel effective. After all, if they went after real criminals (thieves), they'd have to lock themselves up.

I second that motion!

Leave the Girl Scouts alone! Someone go after the annoying companies that send people out to put leaflets on our cars and front doors!

I swear if I come home and find one more advertisment hanging from my doorknob I am going to strangle someone!

Mayor..rope..tree, some assembly required.

And your correct Mr. Lion, it's not the PD, it's the asshats in Town Hall.

In Chicago you can be fined for taking a photo in a public park.
