My prayers for everyone involved. This is the prime example of what a lack of education and resources can do to a community. The mindset needs to be change and hope restored. I believe that is the key to reform.

While this has nothing to do with sunnyside, it’s the same precinct I guess?
Also, nothing good happens at 3-4AM
Any news how the police found him, where they called when shooting happened, or did someone call them after spotting the body?

I wish someone check the employment status of all these housing development residents. If they don’t work, they might as well build the housing developments in remote locations.

oh well, its back to bullets

man, just two years ago a bunch of schools over there were going to get huge investment to teach tech to young kids as Amazon was getting ready to move in in. No Amazon, no LIC tech boom means no hope so its back to the 1980s for these kids, I blame this on the liberal politicians who drove Amazon away.

The NYPD already has a budget of 11 billion dollars. That’s a lot of money. If we stopped asking cops to deal with social issues and let them focus on crime, we could allocate monies towards areas where many social problems could be solved. It’s not rocket science.

Defund this!

“Social issues” such as domestic disturbances have a nasty habit of turning violent, if not deadly. When the first few social workers get greased, you’ll be whistling a different tune.
