After all in the deterministic leftist social sciences view, all bad behavior is a result of economic opporession. No one is to blame and there is no reason to punish bad behavior or crime–people are innocent, there is no culpability in the socialist utopia.
The left doesn’t accept James Q. Wilson’s theories of policing to improve civility. We here at JS are energetically in favor of broken windows policing–envouraging civility and discouraging bad behavior of all kinds in cities is essential for the welfare of the citizenry.
They don’t want civility, they want their version of social justice, don’t blame people for their criminal and anti social behavior, they are victims of the oppressive capitalist system with it classes and injustice and racism and . . .
Wilson was right, Dinkins was Wrong, Guiliani was right, but DeBlasio will take NY back to a time when people put signs on the cars that they didn’t have a damn radio, and muggings and general anti social conduct were the norm in the Dinkins jungle.
