    There’s at least one person killed every day in the city but when they do the counts they claim it only has about 20 to 25 homicides in the whole year. Something is not right. The shooting also, 2 to 3 people shot on a daily basis then they claim they only had 30 in the whole year.

      What do you expect when about 80% of the city population are not someone you would want as your neighbor. You might not like it but the majority of the people that live in the city love how he has turned it into a $hitwhole, it’s why he won by a huge margin. You come in talking about getting tuff on crime and cleaning up the streets and you will never win. The Mayor is not dumb, he knows exactly what people want and he is delivering it.
