Bloomberg says he put police into the black neighborhoods because that's where all the crime is happening. Really? Is that where all the tax evasion is, Mike? Where all the insider trading is? Where all the bribery happens? Or the child abuse or the domestic violence or the sexual assault or all the cocaine is snorted or where the black market adderall is snorted under the private school bleachers? Where the insurance fraud happens? Or the high-priced illegal organs are sold, or the predatory subprime mortgages are pushed on unsuspecting homeowners in nice-smelling bank offices?
Or the laundering of billions of dollars of Mafia money? Or where the execs of J&J decide to keep asbestos-laden baby power on the shelves so as to make a few extra bucks? Is that where they're doing it, in the Projects? Or is it where Monsanto plots to carpet-bomb the country with herbicide, which the WHO says will cause your dick to fall off? Or where Boeing higher-ups decided to put planes in the air that they knew were going to go straight into the ground? Or where the execs at Coca-Cola plotted to give diabetes to a generation of children?
Are the poor minority neighborhoods the location of all those crimes, Mr Bloomberg? Street crime doesn't hold a candle to corporate crime. The big-pharma created opioid epidemic alone kills 130 Americans every day.
