Hopefully the mayor will call the press to crush a couple of dirt bikes and scooters soon. People are real upset. Perhaps he can dismantle a couple of unused outside dining sheds also while he is at it.

They don’t care about speed limits, lights or stop signs. In my area the other day, I saw a guy riding an ATV. NYC is a driving and walking city – get rid of all of the bicyclists and e-whatevers. They’re noisy, dangerous and don’t belong in NYC.

these guys drive like lunatics, and now we have motorized bicycles that go 30+ mph


Looks like they tried n some other guy died and now they are doing an investigation against the officers

They should suspend the police who first arrived on the scene while investigation is under way! being that that seems to be the new protocol. ?

Pat- It must be exhausting carrying the weight of all defenseless and vulnerable police officers.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
