... criminals scare away investment. Behold, the magnificence of 'mother knows best' government:

The AP wrote:
NEWARK, N.J. - Some business owners in this crime-plagued city say recent enforcement of a decades-old ordinance prohibiting some types of barbed wire and razor wire is making Newark more attractive to thieves...

...John DeSantis, owner of a lot used by an auto repair business in Newark's West Ward, says his property has been the site of more than a dozen burglaries since the summer, when the city forced him to remove razor wire on top of the 7-foot-tall fence that surrounds the lot...

The city government began enforcing the decades old law as a means of 'cleaning up the view' to attract redevelopment, apparently.

The AP wrote:
DeSantis said he was surprised when a city official told him that the ordinance was being enforced to prevent passers-by or anyone climbing the fence from being injured by the barbed wire.


I think that's kind of idea...

Pretty hilarious, really. Anyone whose business gets broken into should sue the city.
