Crime and Clinton

Interesting interview on the Daily Beast with New York-turned-LA police boss Bill Bratton about how crime differs on the coasts. But I especially noticed something he said about Obama's cabinet:

I'm very optimistic that they get it much more thoroughly than the current administration. One, because there are so many ClintonitesóRahm Emanuel was very involved in the crime acts of the 90s as was Joe Biden and Eric Holder.
Now, by "crime acts" Holder means the omnibus crime bills that passed during the Clinton years and have been given some credit for the fall of crime in the '90s. But by using the phrase "crime acts," it seems like Bratton is accusing all those people of committing criminal acts themselves.

Another big difference, NYPD are helpful and nice to citizens. In LA, THE LAPD is to be feared and is not helpful at all. They let cameras police the nongang areas and are mean in general.
