Crime Is Up and Bloomberg
Blames iPhone Thieves

New York Times, by Michael M. Grynbaum

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 12/28/2012 2:44:43 PM

Hold onto your iPhones! Major crime in New York City inched up this year, and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg on Friday fingered the culprit: too many iPhones and iPads were being swiped. A rise in thefts of shiny Apple products accounted for the slight increase in the city’s annual crime index, a statistic that covers a number of felonies, including murder, grand larceny and robbery, Mr. Bloomberg said on Friday morning during his weekly radio show. As of Monday, the Police Department recorded 3,484 more major crimes in 2012 than for the same period last year. The increase in Apple product

Comments:
Desirable Apple products cause otherwise upstanding citizens to commit crimes. Therefore, an iPad is an assault rifle and an iPhone is a deadly semiauto Sig.

Oh gawd...here he goes again...

NYC Regulation #195438985443 - No phone, tablet or other handheld computer device shall employ more than a 2 gig micro SD card...

There! That´ll show ´em! It´s all those DRAM pigs at the trough making problems for us.

Once we limit their choices, they´ll be *much* better off...

What a buffoon.

Well that settles it. Obviously this situation calls for a special NYC iPhone, iPad, iNonsense tax on all Apple phones sold within the city.

Whatever you do, don`t get caught with an iPhone in one hand an a 17 oz soda in the other.

NYC taxpayers ultimately bear the costs of these thefts in the form of costs incurred through increased police work and, ultimately, the incarceration of those thieves caught and convicted.

Accordingly, Mayor Nurse Bloomberg should propose a $30 surcharge for every iPhone and iPad sold within NYC.

Further, so as to prevent the unwashed masses from dodging this most necessary tax and purchasing such items beyond NYC´s borders, such as from stores in adjacent counties, states, and from online retailers, NYC shall require that every operable iPhone/iPad in the city must have a 3-inch x 3-inch NYC tax sticker affixed to it (similar in concept to those tax stickers affixed to packs of cigarettes sold in NYS).

If an operable iPhone/iPad is possessed within NYC and lacks said tax sticker, then that device shall be confiscated and impounded until such time the owner pays the tax and the $250 administrative surcharge and additional $50 storage surcharge to NYC.

See, problem solved.

Isn´t there some way to disable iPhones? If Apple would put some kind of self destruct mechanism in them they wouldn´t be stolen as much. Some kind of remote destruction command would make them less worth stealing, since the owner would never get the phone back anyway.

The phone craze in this country has gotten completely out of hand.People are getting so addicted to these things they can´t even perform meager tasks.Special accommodations are being made at theaters so addicted people can get their fix. I´m sure a lot of it is people checking up on their spouse or S/O to make sure they aren´t cheating which is another absurd trend in itself.I imagine in some cases people´s addiction is what´s doing them in if they´re brandishing the damn things in high risk areas like subways.

What I don´t get is why these stolen phones can´t be locked out by the owner,rendering them useless.

But yeah,blaming an inanimate device for crime is typical Bloomberg idiocy.

I heard the new 49er´s stadium will have an app that you can order a beer and hot dog from your seat. No mention of an app for exiting the consumed beer.

Accompanied by an insanely catchy techno-Bollywood-style anthem, Mr Poo features in a very silly and surreal new video aimed at raising awareness of the health dangers associated with public defecation in India. Though the video is light-hearted; the issue is a serious one. Globally, India has the largest number of people, more than 620 million, still defecating in the open. Only about half the population of the country use toilets. According to the Poo2Loo campaign, which is supported

Trenton — The law firm hired by Gov. Chris Christie´s office that cleared him and current staff aides of any wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge scandal donated $10,000 to a national political group the governor currently heads, according to a published report. The Record reported late Tuesday night that Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher gave $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association — nine days before it released a report that cleared the governor in last year´s controversial lane closings at the bridge.

Four days after a downgraded credit rating, New Jersey has more bad financial news: Tax collections were once again short of Governor Christie’s already lowered expectations. This time, the gap was $145 million for March – a full 7 percent short of what Christie projected for the month, according to data released Monday by the state Department of Treasury. That means the Christie administration has to make up that gap with just three months left in the state’s fiscal year, time that includes the crucial income tax collection month of April. Already, the administration has said it cut nearly $700

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development.

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
