Wow I am never going to New York. So just an insane cash grab or a part of the plan to grind the will of the American people to a pulp?

So what do you guys think and how does your city rank compared to this?

I am so confused I thought liberals were for the poor people? I always thought it was the republicans who wanted more of a police state. Maybe it is all government that wants this.
I am liberal and I say this is ridiculous! People don't need more fines and regulations they need less.

Noone is for the poor people in NYC, everything is being raised and everything is a crime.

My husband is a heating plant technician with the city, just this month they sent out a memo saying in his shop everything has to be taken out. Microwave, fridge, small radio, even the table and chairs! It was only his dept, everyone else got to keep their stuff but if these guys say something, forget about it.

Did they have help in preventing this??? YES! The good ol' Union. But what happened?...They keep their mouths shut and if you call to complain all they say is "be lucky you have a job"

Thanks, theyre trying to come together and fight it. Can you believe he asked for a water fountain and they said no?!

The things that are considered crimes here in nyc are just ridiculous. But yes, at the end of the day, it's just for the bucks....

I'm a New Yorker and I can easily say that regardless of the law, the police here are miles ahead of the police elsewhere I've been.

The police in Cinicinatti are an absolute joke. In Cincinatti where it's illegal to smoke in bars, (like NYC), you can actually get arrested for public intox. by standing outside the bar to smoke a cig. ???

Everywhere in Tennessee the highway patrol are gestapo. If you're from New York, good luck. Somehow the civil war never ended in some places. ???

The list goes on. Many here can corroborate I'm sure.

The fact is that New York has so many ridiculous laws and fines, but the police interact with the public in a terrific manner. The laws are clear. Unlike other areas of the country, if you're not breaking the law, you won't get bothered or get a fine.

While I definitely cannot stand Bloomberg or his anti-smoking propaganda or policies, New York is a wonderful place to live or visit.
