If it happened to my mother, I’d scold her for doing something so careless and tell her not to do it again. Give her some money and report the crime! But, my mother isn’t an idiot and knows to lock doors and windows when she leaves her house. Anyone who grew up poor knows this rule. If you don’t then leave your windows open and door unlocked. See what happens! Don’t they teach common sense in school anymore?

Can I just say it used to be better in the good old days when a scoundrel would snatch a lady purse and wax his moustache and wish a good day to you sir? Bring back the old fashion hucksters.

SunnysidePost is loaded with crime stories. I understand that a lot of these incidents are really happening in neighboring Woodside but still there is nothing separating Sunnyside from Woodisde but a cross walk and zip code. I am glad i do not live here.

For a second I thought I was reading about Bogota, Colombia. That stuff happens there all the time. You have to keep the windows rolled out during stop at traffic light or they will reach into your car and steal your watch. I have family from there and have visited Bogota so I’m not biased.

Police should enhance the film.

Sunnyside needs Law & Order

to film a new episode here.

So we can complain about real pain: parking.

I’m actually a loathsome transplant hipster. *wave*

The comments here are often particularly offensive, and if highlighting the racist/homophobic content of another person’s post makes me a hater, then consider me a hater.

Furthermore, Sunnyside Post commenters aren’t legally protected minority groups. That said, if you feel like Sunnyside Post commenters are the victims of unfounded hatred, and you are the victim of any form of discrimination because you post on this website, I suggest you bring it up to your local council members and lobbyists.

Many of these commenters feel powerful making their hateful remarks with anonymity. Calling them out for being vile human beings threatens that.

probably some self absorbed kardashian type taking selfies in her boyfriends car while oblivious to the world. The guy runs smiling and drops it a few feet away with nothing removed just to teach her a lesson.

People need to understand that nearby homeless shelters (which usually only allow for short or mid-length stays) attract criminal behavior. It is my understanding that while homeless shelter residents themselves may not be responsible for upticks in criminal behavior, there presence constitutes a large pool of potential victims that may attract crime from the outside.

If anyone see this guy who runs like a woman please turn him in. He might break a heel, or a nail. Puff

I can’t tell if this post was more sexist or more homophobic. Either way, very “on brand” for Sunnyside Post comments! Kudos!

Anyway – hope they catch him – we don’t need any more criminals in our neighborhood.
