They are selling “butt protectors” on #7, 61st street station. If someone tries to touch your butt a 240 volt shock will teach them otherwise. It only costs $100 and can be customized to your particular butt size and geometry. You can have your butt assessed in the back of the candy store on the 61st corner to get the right dimensions and insure a snug fit. Get one while supplies last! Don’t forget to charge the battery every night, and don’t sit on any metal seats.

Seriously?? The police are looking for this creep and to do what?? Arrest him for a minute or two and then let him go? Grew up in Sunnyside in the 1970’s and things like this were common on the subway and no one gave a crap. This generation can’t handle living in a tough city. Also, how would one go about grabbing a woman’s bottom while going DOWN the stairs not UP? Please explain. Worse things are occuring all over the neighborhood and this is the story the Sunnyside Post chooses to print??

We shouldn't have to worry people like Trump are riding the train

This might be ok in the White House, but not here


Thank you Mr JVB

You have let the community down miserably… Sunnyside is definitely deteriorating and you couldn’t give a rat’s.. You hiding behind your colors and smoking mirrors will at some point have to face what you created, passed and played stupid on and ultimately envelope slipped ( cash) to ok your criminal fetishes face to face. Fear is not the correct word but Guilt is what you must forever live with. You sold many long time residents out and have been creating a DRUG HAVEN and Harboring a HOMELESS sanctuary all throughout our once diamond in the rough community. LISTEN CLOSELY and GIVE a you know what
CAN YOU KINDLY AND GENUINELY be the man you were hired to be and escape the continued criminal element plaguing many queens neighborhoods now. You would be a champion to many and gratefully admired.


God Bless


I guess some commenters did not read about the recent revolving-door justice case in which a woman was charged with attacking (punching and cursing) three Jewish women in a Crown Heights released with no bail only to strike again days later after she was freed due to the new justice reform laws. I guess it all depends on what someone considers non violent. To me, an attack based on hate in which the victim is left with a swollen eye is a violent attack. However, the list of crimes in which individuals will no longer have to post cash bail include lesser degrees of assault, manslaughter, drug possession with intent to sell, and burglary. NJ had similar bail reform changes but included the right of a judge to set bail if they were a threat to society. NY opted out of giving judges that power I guess to stay away from a fall out which might conclude from certain politicians that certain groups would be targeted based on race and accuse judges and the justice system of being racists.

Yes a groping (which is an act praised by the current American President on several occasions) according to Fox News viewers is viewed as the collapse of society but no mention of the $2 million stolen by President Trump from our veterans.


@Optics…Was the guy in Brooklyn who fought with the police officer and was released a “non violent offender”?..I suppose you wouldn’t mind spending your tax dollars if the victim was you or a family member!

How do you know the suspect was a Republican?

The article doesn’t mention that he’s a registered Republican.


I’d wager that the people opposed to prison reform also oppose paying taxes. Which, as you know, go toward the $143,130 annual cost of keeping an inmate in a city jail. So yeah, locking up nonviolent offenders seems like a great investment. (The guy in this story will get more than a desk appearance.)


Crime is in everyone. Thank liberal policies and Democrats. He’ll get Mets tickets and a gift card just for showing up to court. Vote Republican NYers. We are turning into poop covered cali and heroin needles soon.


This happens to men also. From experience, the first time it happened it was an older man that touched me inappropriately during rush hour on a crowded subway train while I was standing. I was young and I really did not know how to react. I was in shock and was trying to move away from him. I ended up leaving the subway cart on the next stop but felt too ashamed to report it fearing I would be made fun of by my classmates or friends. Its sad to say that they were other incidents also on the subway. When I spoke up the other times the men would usually apologize and make it seem like it was an accident. But as a victim, you know the difference between an accidental touch and a grab in certain areas. Why am I writing about it? Because people should know that it happens to males also and we need to talk to our sons about it.

call it what it is SOCIALISM

you are correct- seems the only people that want prison reform are criminals and their extended families that have managed to wriggle themselves into political life


It’s now catch and release with lowlifes like him..He’s facing a desk appearance ticket. Progressive Values in action!!!
