I heard that President Obama is holding a press conference next week regarding the Sunnyside mugging. Another brainless comment from a Sunnyside Post reader.

Where is the outrage here!!??? Are we to be afraid in our own neighborhood? Mr. Obama, say something about this damnit!


gee they find the perpetrators of crime against white victims petty fast don’t they? Hands up don’t shoot.


Great work by the police and the community who helped in this arrest. I love my community here in Sunnyside.


justice will not be served unfortunately. They will be out in a couple of days and do it again to another poor victim! That’s just the way our system works!


Looks like the new police chief for the precinct is already getting the results….

Glad someone (Jimmy?) was able to make the changes at that level….
