I watched that video. Like so many of our cities today, the crime is TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL.
I am concerned about many of my good friends who live and/or work in NYC. Your lives are at risk every time you go out there.
Of course that is also true these days no matter where you live. BUT the risk is Much Higher in a place like NYC.
On here, I often talk or joke about the Ole' Homestead here in Connecticut. Of course we too have our pockets of criminal activity and danger but it is primarily in limited areas. Places that are easy to avoid.
BUT, no matter where you live, Big City or Small Town, USA, our police officers are out there dealing with this stuff on a daily basis. People assaulted, shot, robbed, home invasions, etc. Businesses of course are always at high risk.
I really worry about all those dedicated police officers who are out there trying to protect all of us. They are dealing with our societies worst element, including some with some serious past convictions who are roaming our streets.
Yes, "Cops Lives Matter" too.
Many of us here were out there helping people most of our lives. Whether it were a city paid or volunteer firefighter, maybe a police officer, an EMT or Paramedic, or a Dispatcher who answered our thousands of calls for help every day, as well as many military members who gave so much to Our Country. There are many others too such as those who care for the sick or elderly.
"memorymaster", lets take a look back to that famous song by Louis Armstrong called; "What a Wonderful World". For this we go back to the year 1967. A very good year for me. It was the year I finally made it and graduated from high school.
"No more pencils, no more books, no more teachers dirty looks" (Remember that one ? )
As we view this video, those of us who have been around for a while ask ourselves, "Where did we go wrong" ?
