    The difference between “doing something for cyclists” and “doing something for cycling” is still lost in New York.

  • Joe R.

    Not that it wasn’t already abundantly obvious, but Bratton needs to go. Not just for this, but for his dated ideas on policing.

  • Alexander Vucelic

    Bratton proves time and time again, He really despises New Yorkers.

    “De Blasio Seeks Horse Carriage Compromise” I wonder if the people that went out and slammed Quinn in order to boost Deblasio on the basis of his promise to end the carriage industry on Day 1 feel betrayed or just stupid……

  • Bolwerk

    I’m really dreading Bratton’s successor. Will it be Joe Arpaio?

    Bill de Blasio is barely better than Rudy Giuliani.

  • Bolwerk

    Why the fuck is a police chief even allowed to comment on political matters? This is not supposed to be a political position. His job is to enforce the law, not influence how it’s written.

  • Short of de Blasio’s spineless leadership itself, Bill Bratton is the single biggest impediment to Vision Zero.

  • R

    Considering Bratton’s expertise on keeping traffic moving and ignoring vehicular crimes, I’m sure we’re all very interested in what he has to say about bicycles.

    If you were a “progressive” and weren’t suckered by de Blasio before the
    2013 election, you were mocked. But in this matchup, he was no more than the Obama to Quinn’s Hillary. Quinn just happened to be crueller, and perhaps (unlike Hillary) stupider. You know, Bill was Just Going To Fix Everything.

    I don’t know of many people who read the de Blasio warning signs correctly. RWAs of course predicted crime-ageddon, but most RWAs are idiots and the rest are delusional or sociopathic. Nobody I know of on the center-right or even center-left, the people who should be more discerning, actually realized de Blasio was more or less just Bloomberg again. Even Zephyr Teachout, no idiot whatever you think of her politics, thought de Blasio had some magic reformist cred.
