It doesn't matter what the gov put down on paper to make it look good,those of us who work,witch does not include YOU, know better.
Hell the F-ing Nazi's made their Final Solution look good on paper too. Anyone with half a brain can write out some crap on a damn paper and clal it the truth. The problem has always been that stupid people like you, who never think for themselves, believe it.
And here are some stats on your city. don't like where you live, quit belly dancing and get a real job.
Albany, NY (December 19, 2013)-
New York States unemployment rate decreased from 7.7% to 7.4% in November 2013, its lowest level since January 2009, according to preliminary figures released today by the New York State Department of Labor. In addition, the states economy added 4,300 private sector jobs, raising New York States private sector job count to 7,493,500 another all-time high.
Since the beginning of Governor Andrew M. Cuomos administration, the New York State economy has added 380,400 private sector jobs and experienced employment growth in 30 of the past 35 months.
It's one of many factors in a recent drop in violent crime in the most violent part of the city. In 2010, the west side of Arbor Hill had a combined average of 7.7 violent crimes murders, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults each month, more than three times the city average.
Albany Police Chief Steve Krokoff said the command center was more than a visual crime deterrent. Though often unoccupied, its cameras were always operating and, the chief said, it represented a more widespread, community-based effort to stop violent crime in the neighborhood. But it likely played at least a small role in chipping away at the neighborhood's violent crime rate, which plummeted 26 percent between January 2011 and July 2012, when the number of violent crimes fell to an average of 5.7 per month.
Data provided to the Times Union by the Albany Police Department show that in that same 18-month period, violent crime dropped 13 percent across the city. Krokoff is the first to admit that reasons for the precipitous drop extend beyond simply parking the command center in a crime-ridden area and more comprehensive work by his department.
Seems while there is crime, as there is in any city in the US, the violent crime rate is dropping.
Don't want anymore crime? Vote for the party that wants to create jobs. Vote for the party that will house the mentally ill in mental health facilities and get rid of putting them in overcrowded jails. Vote for the party that will work to make sure the poor have adequate housing.
There are solutions to the problems. Just whining about something never cured the problem, Pagan.
