Shockingly, the NYC crime rate is up. Major crimes have spiked to levels so high that one might be tempted to label them as “epidemic”.  Mayor De Bozo held a press conference to express how shocked he is that criminals would be committing crimes after they were let out of jail early. 

During our Brownells Bullet Points, we will consider some Tactical Bacon. Also we discuss the wisdom of having numerous ways to feed your family. One of those ways might be to actually grow food. For those who live in the city, we have a possible solution.

During our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we will once more highlight the need to be dangerous on demand. When the state is more concerned with the welfare of convicted criminals than the people, you must be prepared to take care of yourself.

De Blasio said the number of re-offenders remains relatively small and that the city was “buckling down” on monitoring and supervising released prisoners.
