A-When were cops ever around that area? I’ve lived in Sunnyside for over 60 years and the only time you saw cops back behind the cemetery is when they were getting a little shut eye. That’s why we hung out and partied back there. All the years we hung out back there I don’t ever recall having the cops called on us or ever being paid a visit by the cops.

When are motorcyclists going to learn from other riders who are dying from speeding? I wish the cars with the adapters that sound like motorcycles would get ticketed. They also speed through residential areas and don’t care.

Won't stop a reckless fool from being reckless.

All the speed bump would have done was to catapult him hundreds of feet in the air and yards away. Would have done much more damage with those.

Darwinism at its best.

The amount of people that have died under there throughout the years. Can’t there be speed humps installed under there??

Whistling passed the cemetery

With all the noise these jackasses on their dirt bikes make, it’s enough to wake the dead.

At least he didn’t get anyone else killed with his foolishness.

I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more often.
