In September, statistics found by NYPD proved that Apple-related crimes had skyrocketed by 10 times. Mayor Bloomberg stated that the thefts of iPhones and iPads are the cause for this increase.
As of December 24th, 2012, the NYPD recorded 3,484 more crimes than in 2011. To illustrate the situation clearer, 3,890 Apple product thefts occurred up to December 24th, 2012. Do you blame the company’s intelligence for making a product that people desire? Or do you blame the idiots who envy other people’s possessions?
The Mayor’s secretary, Marc La Vorgna stated, “If you just took away the jump in Apple, we’d be down for the year.”
