As an experiment, I would suggest to Mayor Bloomberg that he forgo his protective detail and all police services within one block of city hall in NYC. Since the Mayor seems to feel that cops going on strike would be a good idea, maybe he should try it out. Just to test the veracity of his theories, maybe he should declare City Hall and one square block on each side off limits to the NYPD. I think he'd see the error of his ways pretty darn quick.
Mayor Bloomberg: your arrogance and ego are your undoing. We law enforcement professionals don't take the oath and perform our duty for any political purpose. We put on that uniform, pin on that badge, strap on that gun and go out into our communities to fight crime; to defend the meek; to enforce the law; to keep the peace and to fulfill the duty we chose. We fulfill the duty we embraced when we chose this career path. We back up our oath with a level of honor and dedication I don't think you'll ever understand.
But understand this: my honor and my duty are not things to be played with. They don't get conveniently set aside to serve your purpose. I will not compromise that which makes me a decent and moral human being to serve your cause.
Now... go thank the cops who protect you and stop insulting them with your stupidity.
Oh, and have a safe day!
