I wonder if he ran the marathon yesterday? Anyone who can announce a hold-up on 55st at 4.57am and then at 4.58am hold up a joint three blocks away, would have been in with a chance of breaking the two hour mark.

What the hell is happening to the neighborhood I grew up in ? In the past few months I have read of murders, rapes and robberies. Roosevelt Avenue is a cesspool of seedy bars. Where are the politicians and police.
Finally Doughboy part is trashed by homeless and the monument to members of our Armed Forces killed in Viet Nam is deface. As the demographics of the area has changed the incidents of violent crime has skyrocketed.

So the police comes to the deli around the corner ask to see footage of when the suspect rob the store. My answer “you have the wrong store, its the one around the corner”. No wonder we have all these crimes!

Are you sure? Do you know if he lives north or south of Roosevelt? I live on 57th and often have my eye on the block often so I will keep watch and call 911 immediately. Scary events for the area.

The Bulimic Panda called him to let him know how much G-d loves him. This weather invites bad behavior. He’s a good boy. Amen.

R- You sound like a low performing low IQ low wage imbecile. Just the type who would come to the defense of a creep who sticks a gun in people’s faces. I hope Mark shoves that gun in your mothers face you loser. I bet you’d lose those remarks concerning snitching. You’re nothing but a low wage punk.

Man, you are an internet tough guy. I’m really impressed with your use of insults. I mean, you are so creative. I hope you don’t extend your wrath upon me. I mean, isn’t that why you blow excrement out of your pie hole? To get yourself off and try to intimidate people? Oh, and I forgot how goddamn intelligent you are. You must be so smart, you could actually find your way out of a paper bag. That’s really smart!! Keep up the good work!! I’m sure everybody enjoys you bringing the conversation into the shit your dog left on the street.

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

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. 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.
