Politician Gets Hands Dirty

Yeah that's a pretty boilerplate headline. But like M. Night Shyamalan on a bender there is a twist!

This time the politician did a good thing!

The mayor of Newark chased down a would be robber.

Good for him. I've been to Newark and other than Gary, Indiana, it is hell on earth. Symbolism is important and Mayor Booker's instinctual foot chase while screaming "these days are over" shows that just maybe there is a politician out there who values action.

Wow. Sharpe James finally leaves office after 20 years and the new guy is cracking down on more crime than he ever did.

Gives Newark some hope!
