As the New York Post reported Friday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to deal with hypodermic needles left lying around city parks isn’t working — it seems junkies just aren’t using the needle disposal bins the city put up in places where it’s popular to shoot up.
“Parks in the Bronx are still littered with dangerous hypodermic needles, with nearly 60,000 found on the ground compared with just 7,000 in Hizzoner’s 44 locked containers,” the Post reported.
The Post has some good news, though: it looks like the city is going to hire six workers to clean up needles from city parks.

The city doesn’t already have enough workers to do this?

De Blasio literally urged New Yorkers not to patronize a Chick-fil-A that opened up in the city, but he’s fine hiring people to pick up dirty needles from junkies who didn’t avail themselves of the city’s handy disposal bins.
now there's a job that they won't have enough applications for. millions of unemployed will jump at the chance for a great job like this.

Amazing how used smack needles tend to accumulate wherever Democrats enjoy absolute political control https://t.co/Nkfnto7TNw

Maybe the mayor can ask Nancy Pelosi how she keeps her district so clean.
‘Shocking’! Bill de Blasio’s super-progressive plan to keep NYC parks free of needle litter has backfired https://t.co/9YQnMmqvj6
