Mayor Michael Bloomberg

You can pay for school but money can’t buy you common sense. Michael Bloomberg is about to learn a thing or two with his recent announcement.

New York is one of America’s major media markets, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced the opening of a new center to help bolster that fact. Joining Bloomberg Tuesday (Oct. 1) in the announcement of the Made In NY Media Center was The Roots drummer and new artist-in-residence, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg probably wishes he could take this comment back. In a recent interview, Bloomberg stated that mayoral candidate and NYC Public Advocate Bill de Blasio’s campaign is “racist.”

A joint sting operation in New York busted up two major gun rings, with 19 persons arrested and seized 254 weapons in total. Although rapper Matthew “Neno” Best was at best a low-level operative, his actions on social media helped NYPD investigators nab the individual for brokering the sales of the guns in Brooklyn.

Social media, gun runners and a foolhardy rapper led to the biggest bust ever of illegal firearms by the NYPD. Mayor Michael Bloomberg revealed today that undercover cops seized what amounted to a huge arsenal of automatic assault weapons including machine guns, high-capacity assault rifles and handguns. 

On Monday (August 12), United States District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin ruled that the New York Police Department‘s “stop-and-frisk” tactic was unconstitutional. Today (August 16), city officials filed to appeal the federal ruling.

Actor and White House official Kal Penn, known for his role in the popular Harold & Kumar stoner flicks, shocked fans and critics of the controversial “stop-and-frisk” policy alike. Penn tweeted Tuesday (August 13) that the police tactic was “good policy” and refused to back down from his stance.

A major blow was struck against the New York Police Department‘s controversial “stop-and-frisk” tactic earlier today (August 12). A federal judge has ruled that the practice violates the constitutional rights of minority citizens in the city.

Opponents of the New York Police Department’s controversial “stop-and-frisk” tactic report that an alarming number of Black and Hispanic males have been stopped. However, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says whites may be getting stopped too much.

Although New York mayor Michael Bloomberg has come under fire for supporting the questionably racist “stop & frisk” police tactic, the city chief took aim at the New York Times for its crime coverage. During a speech yesterday (April 30) after responding to a city council ruling to enact a police watchdog group, Bloomberg took […]

Some may recall last year that Democratic New York State Senator Malcolm Smith demanded an apology from Lil Wayne over the rapper’s dismissal of the city. Sen. Smith made the news again earlier today, this time after he and City Councilman Dan Halloran were busted by the Feds for attempting to rig the upcoming mayoral […]

The shooting death of 16-year-old Brooklyn teen, Kimani Gray, at the hands of the New York Police Department, has deeply divided many in the city. As protests and demonstrations continue to take place in Gray’s honor, the boy’s mother is taking a stand of her own in denying contact with mayor Michael Bloomberg.
