When New York City had a new leftist mayor, many foreshadowed there would be a significant rise in crime spanning over a few years. The new mayor, Bill de Blasio, was to blame.

from Michael Bloomberg (the New York City Mayor) in 2012. In May of 2012 Mayor Bloomberg announced his portion cap rule proposal (Renwick, 2013).
