Why would anyone be afraid in NYC? Walking the city streets, almost everywhere you look are clusters of at least three policemen and you can see several. Street corners have raised security platforms with blackened glass; these and an overwhelming abundance of CCTV cameras watch every move of every citizen. That American citizens voluntarily live under such intense scrutiny boggles my mind. I went there once and will never go back again. Whatever it has become, it does not represent America.
