New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg took a shot at safety in Philadelphia during an interview on New York television Thursday.
“Why would any rational person want to trade what we have here for situation in Philadelpha?” Bloomberg told NY 1. “More murders, higher crime. Is that what the Times wants?”
Bloomberg was responding to a New York Times editorial that suggested the Big Apple institute a stop-and-frisk policy more similar to the plan supported by Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter.
