If Popeye the Sailor Man would been there to catch Brutus in the act and save the day, Olive Oil would have given Popeye some of her Spinach but Wimpy would want a free Hamburger and not pay until Tuesday. WAIT CHECK WIMPY’S POCKETS.

See this is why we don’t need any form of criminal justice reform. NYPD has never been corrupt and now murderers and thieves roam the streets.x

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
