Bloomberg: “New York is the Safest City in the World..”

26 Aug

As long as the cops stay in Dunkin’ Donut…

In other words of the (at least) 11 people shot yesterday, 2 of whom fatally, the NYPD was responsible for 10 of those shot, 9 of whom were literally “collateral damage” in a non-shoot out, and should be sacrificing various animals to their assorted guns that the NYPD, in missing their designated target, is at least quite atrocious in hitting any major organs. All of which of course begs the question: is a hit-to-miss (and potentially hit-to-casualty) ratio of less than 10% for New York’s finest really acceptable and is this the kind of statistic that NY City wishes to boast in enticing new tourists?

The media is strangely silent on the “facts” of the “tragedy…

You’re more likely to be the victim of “accidental” handgun shootings if you’re anywhere near a cop…

only 2% of civilian shootings involve an innocent person being shot (not killed). The error rate for police is 11%. What this means is that you are more than 5 times more likely to be accidentally shot by a policeman than by an armed citizen. But, when you consider that citizens shoot and kill at least twice as many criminals as do police every year, it means that, per capita, you are more than 11 times more likely to be accidentally shot by a policeman than by an armed citizen

Maybe handgun bans target the wrong individuals…
