NYC’s Crime Spike Is All Apple’s Fault

According to the New York PostApple is to blame for what they’re calling a “spike” in New York City’s crime rate this year. The numbers are pretty telling–there have been 3,280 more thefts of Apple products this year than there were over the same period last year, a 40 percent increase, compared to an increase of only four percent in overall crime.

“The victims are walking around . . . listening to their iPhones or reading them, not paying attention to their surroundings, and the perp just comes up behind them and snatches it,” said the paper’s anonymous law enforcement source. The Post’s solution is to blame Apple, but wouldn’t it make more sense to blame the hapless folks who own their products? Take it away, NYPD.
