Oh please I live in the Sunnyside Gardens Muse right across the street and I walk my dog at all hours of the night and have never had any problem. People can get hysterical so quickly.

The park should be patrolled by the 108th on a routine basis. The handball courts have been a hangout after the park is officially closed. There is a gap in the fence near the corner of 43rd St. and the back of the handball court is not visible from the street so it”s conducive for drug use.

I should also add that I saw the police retrieve a young man’s body from the embankment of the railroad tracks a short ways down 43rd Street. He was white.

Although I agree that crime in this area is, all things considered, not bad. I would take the Compstat statistics with a grain of salt. They don’t give the police any incentive to report crimes. I am sure I am not the only person in Sunnyside who has reported criminal activity and seen the 108th do nothing about it.

Crime is down because it’s either washed out or reported as something less. I got family/friends in 5 different precincts. They are warned to down play crime or lose OT. Unless there is a body in the street, they supposed to look other way. Di Blasio is cooking the books.

Every mayor/commissioner since they introduced CompStat decades ago has been cooking the books. That’s the weakness of the system. Don’t blame di blasio just because you don’t like him.

Stop Bitching and do something about it. Bring back the neighborhood watch or The Guardian Angels. You want your kids safe to be safe day or night? Then grow some and patrol the streets at night.

You all are a bunch of whiners. You live in the safest city in America and one stupid wanker in your cutsie little park and your panties get all in a twist. Go outside sometime, it ain’t that bad around here.

I’ve been saying this for months, NYPD needs to enforce no loitering law. Thug looking characters are around sunnyside, I’ve been seeing a few less recently, maybe they are locked up somewhere? I don’t know but you all complain about the high rent, how do these people live in sunnyside and pay rent? Are they all section 8 folks?

This area has been turning into garbage over the past 30 years. But it’s OK…. just keep the blinders on and keep drinking the Kool-Aid. Things will get better…

AnHell is at it again… No picture/mugshut of the gun slinger? Weird..
As for all of you (except the few) how the hell do you know this guy is an illegal alien? Just take a walk around sunnyside and enjoy the sketchy looking white , black, asian and various other folk at several different street corners, and tell me there aren’t more weirdo non-hispanics than “illegal mexicans”. This dude is 22, most likely was born here. Hopefully SSP follows up on this and keeps us posted, especially how long will he be in prison for.

Deportation? Why are you assuming this individual is an illegal??? Because he has a Spanish name? I feel sorry for your kids having a parent so ignorant like yourself!!!
