As soon as Pataki signed the death penalty in 1995 after Cuomo vetoed it 12 years in a row, the homicide rate dropped in half.

Mario Cuomo has the blood of 15,000 murdered New Yorkers on his hands.

Giuliani doubled the size of the cops and told them to take down the homicidal maniacs standing around that where obviously packing (you don't have to be a rocket scientist to tell).

The commies complained, but the streets were safer.

Now with King anal soda pop in Gracie Mansion and Cuoumo II in Albany, you would have to be not very bright to live in NYC unless you have a Death Wish.

But former Gov. Mario M. Cuomo, who vetoed 12 death penalty bills before Mr. Pataki defeated him last year, said of the new law: "This is a step back in what should be a march constantly toward a higher level of civility and intelligence. The argument that the death penalty will deter and reduce crimes has been abandoned almost everywhere."
