Looks like Mumbles Menino thinks the solution to Boston’s problem with crime and violence has nothing to do with parenting and personal responsibility – it is all the video games fault. . . .

I grew up on Tom and Jerry and Bugs Bunny and Road Runner. . . I saw plenty of folks shot with shotguns to the face, blown up with dynamite, hit with shovels, and all kinds of other mayhem and you know what? I never tried it myself. . . .

Menino you can’t fix this outlawing violent games. Personally I don’t like them but it is not my call what other may enjoy. We need to go back to teaching kids that actions have consequences, and maybe try something novel like punishing kids for a change.. . . . Parents need to teach them they will be held accountable for their actions, and maybe if the state actually put a few of the gang bangers in JAIL for a while we might get somewhere.

Instead it is business as usual in liberal MA – slaps on the writs, revolving jail doors and blaming everyone but the criminal for his or her actions. . . .

Menino, Boston is a mess because you won’t punish the criminals, you blame everyone else for your failures and problems, and you disarm citizens so criminals know they are safe attacking them. Way to go. . . . ..

And this from the blog “No Looking Back - an escapee from Ma. . . .

From AOL Money & Finance: Safest States to Live In

No 1: New Hampshire

New Hampshire is ranked No. 1 for the first time thanks to impressively low crime across the board. It boasts the nation's lowest murder rate and second-lowest aggravated assault and burglary rates.

Rankings in Crime (out of 50)

Assault: 49
Burglary: 49
Murder: 50
Motor Vehicle Theft: 47
Rape: 39
Robbery: 43

But, I thought guns caused crime!

Our good friends Steve Bailey, John Rosenthal, and Tom Menino are always telling us that New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont (#2 and #4 on the list), with their "lax" gun laws, are awash with deadly weapons, which anyone with a few dollars in his pocket can purchase on a whim.

Why the profound absence of violent crime?

As if I have to ask.

Why, it's almost as if they're all full of shit, and that their motives lie not in reducing crime or punishing violent criminals, but in securing more governmental control over the populace.

Who knew?
