The following video provided by local resident George Burles captures all the police activity in the area yesterday (from the bogus shooting calls— see story below–and the scene of the suicide, which is 2 1/2 minutes into footage)

Most of those people didn’t even know what happened right away.

When an NYPD chopper circles your block and a half dozen patrol cars show up, people want to know what’s going on. It’s called concern.


You weren’t there so what do you know?! No one on that block was disrespectful for you talk about them. I was there that day. Everyone knows each other and we look out for one another.

“That tape” was placed to secure the seen. We know how to read! Residents who lived on the block or the next one, NEEDED to cross. The officers gave us no one issues when crossing. Street was shut down to vehicles only.

Don’t speak about what you don’t know.

All the lookie-lous disgust me. Standing around looking like slobs gossiping about someone’s death. And of course cross the police line tape which clearly says Do Not Cross. So disrespectful. I guess people like that don’t mind looking like trash.

I saw nothing about any of this in the papers or tv news. Did anyone else?


This is heartbreaking.

If any of you reading this are considering ending your own life, please seek help. Suicide is a permanent answer to temporary problems. If you call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) you’ll be connected to a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area, anytime 24/7.

20 years old and suicidal. That’s so sad. Let’s hope he found some peace.


Well they called in a BOMB threat plus all the FDNY and NYPD Service garages are next to the cemetery. Easy access, low response time for our area.

People sh@t on the 108, but when something goes down, you see 108 cops , helicopters and ES units arrive. Good job, Sunnyside (South) is safe.
