One thing you could always count on from Irvine’s Larry Agran Machine (besides graft and self-promotion) was the annual claim to be America’s Safest City.
How three dumb politicians could take any credit for the comparative safety of Irvine is beyond me, but politicians crave credit and dodge blame whenever they can, and whenever anybody will let them.
Irvine is predominately middle, upper middle class white, with lots of nice quiet Asians; the demographics of a city that was created out of whole cloth less than 50 years ago is what keeps Irvine safe from violent crime, although the white collar sort is a different matter.
But here’s an OC Register story that debunks the Agran/Krom/Kang claim. It turns out that the City just made up the title “America’s Safest City” and bestowed it upon themselves. How’s that for shameless? Apparently, the FBI doesn’t keep track of that and argues that it is misleading.
Now Sukhee, the carpetbagger who wants to represent us in the State Senate, is bound to brag about how safe Irvine was in his tenure there. Well, he certainly can’t brag about anything he’s done in our district, can he? He’s only lived here a few months.
And sure enough, here’s a direct quotation from The Suke’s campaign website:
As mayor and councilmember of Irvine, he was proud that that city was ranked by the FBI for eight years in a row as the safest big city in America with a population over 100,000.
I guess after awhile the politician starts believing his own lies.
So let’s remind Suke that we are on to his annual Safest City lie, and remind him that north Orange County is full of aging cities with established gangs, and lots of the disagreeable sorts of people who commit violent crime. This ain’t Irvine, Sukkee, even though you bought an expensive house in the hills to avoid the riffraff.Watch Ungodly Acts (2015) Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
