Here’s an undisputed fact: You dumb fuckers in NYC voted for Obama and for Clinton. You are getting on a local level what you tried to push off on the rest of us.
“The movement to stop prosecuting subway fare-beaters, announced recently by the Manhattan district attorney and soon to be adopted in Brooklyn, must be expanded citywide, public defenders argue.
“The Legal Aid Society, the Bronx Defenders, Queens Law Associates and other groups have joined efforts to pressure prosecutors in Queens and the Bronx to get onboard with the cause, which advocates say will help unclog the courts.
“Advocates say arresting turnstile jumpers unfairly disadvantages the city’s poor population.”
Disadvantages the poor? Isn’t everybody who uses a public service supposed to pay for it?
Let’s see. Poor New Yorkers should get free passes on city buses. And give every poor person an unlimited taxi card. Oh, and a card so they don’t have to pay at restaurants. Socializers tell us poor people buy an inordinate amount of fast food, so give the underclass free meals at New York’s finest restaurants.
And, of course, “an arrest for fare evasion could mean the threat of deportation for undocumented immigrants.”
