This guy blames everyone but the criminals!
A surge in thefts of iPhone and iPads is responsible for a slight uptick in New York City's overall crime rate, according to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Apple's products were the preferred mobile device target of many thieves in the city, Bloomberg noted during his weekly radio address, according to the New York Times.

Statistics published by the New York Police Department revealed that as of Monday, there were 3,484 more major crimes reported in 2012 than for the same period last year. During that time, the city experienced 3,890 more thefts of Apple products.

"If you just took away the jump in Apple, we'd be down for the year," Marc La Vorgna, the mayor's press secretary, told the Times.

If the queer billionaire mayor was wanting to ban obamaphones with 240 free minutes / mo, I would be all for that. The boyz in the 'hood are using those to coordinate their crime sprees, no doubt.

Subways don't kill people. Subway STATIONS kill people.

Not that I'm in any way defending that fucktard Bloomberg, but I was in Manhattan a week or so ago. You would not believe the number of idiots whipping out ipads every fifteen steps to take pictures. I think they were locals too, more or less. The touristas had their usual big rigs.

Banning iPhones in NYC might actually be something that would get him booted out of office by the people.

He's an asshole, but they're just doing what all politicians do.
Taking facts, and spinning them so that they look better.

No, you'd just be up by whatever amount of other stuff they would have stolen instead.

No Apples around to steal? No problem - steal something else.

as soon as cell companies get that blacklist program for stolen phones up and running, i predict thefts dropping sharply
Link Posted: 12/29/2012 4:11:59 PM EDT
This just goes to asshat's complete lack of understanding of criminal behavior. If there weren't Iphones and Ipads around to steal, they'd be stealing something else, you fucking moron.

Locals don't take pics, look up, or go to Times Square.
All we do is push people into oncoming trains.

Seriously though, I don't have pictures of any cool stuff. Lived within an hour of manhattan most of my life.

It would work the same as the gun ban.

The best way to eliminate theft is do deny people their right to property. If everything is owned by the state then there can be no theft. We should all work toward such a Utopian world.

Actually we don't need to work toward that it already exists. For a limited time you can move there and we will help. It's called North Korea.

He needs to keep banning shit until the voting base in NYC gets really pissed off.

You think they'd be there already, but no...

"Mayor Bloomberg, ban iPhones lower crime! "

Why doesn't he get to the real way to stop everything he wants to stop. BAN BREATHING. You can look for an exemption for politicians on this.

That has to be the dumbest fucking thing I have heard.

So... let me get this straight. If Apple/Ipod/Ipads did not exist then there wouldn't be a crime rate? Thieves always find shit to steal, that's why they are thieves

The douches who live there want this shit, so let them have it. Let them suffer the wrath of fascism. They'll probably like it, the creepy fucks.

Of course. If he banned buttholes, it would be like him dividing by zero.
