I lived in NYC when Bloomberg was in power and Ray Kelly was his police chief.
I don't give a shit if Bloomberg calls himself a liberal or believes he isn't racist because his policies endangered *millions* of Black and Brown people for years and made our neighborhoods a police state under the guise of 'safety'.
Fuck that dude and every single word that comes out of his bitch ass mouth.
@Are0h I feared for the lives of my brothers in the Bronx more during that period than any other. It's not a coincidence that it's been years since I've gotten a phone call about cops making them lie down in the middle of the street because they fit a profile. Obviously that shit still goes on but it was literally the policy during his administration.
