This is why people who need medication are getting scrutinized, getting hassled by doctor’s. Im 74 yrs old with 2 knee replacements , 4 herniation in my neck, and the doctors give me the 3rd degree every month. This guy is the problem, guys like him, arrest him already, maybe I can get my medication without a jury trial for once.

$4,000 in pills? It takes 5 business days to get brand name prescriptions . Single employee working with today’s opioids problems? This doesn’t make sense


bet she knew him……I thought drugs stores had fake bottles with fake pills just for this occasion….. like money paks that explode with a red dye


This seems to be the trend in sunnyside nowadays.
I have been living here for over thirty years and the neiborhood went from good to bad to good again. I see the same pattern now as when it started going downhill in the past. I hope I am wrong.


Ano- if you have been here over thirty years now, then you would know this crime took place in Wooddide not in Sunnyside.


Anyways, I’m moving to Elmhurst, so I won’t be making baseless comments on this site any longer. Farewell friends.


Admin:My post you blocked about gay guys moving to Elmhurst is an observation and legit. Please allow.


$4000 worth of pills? so 4 pills then. Doesnt seem like much. Unless it’s from Canada, then it’s a million pills for that amount.

And their “side” of fries is $7. And it’s huge. Not really a “side,” but they give you some plastic finger tips so you won’t get your fingers greasy. I took them home and played doctor with my partner. But it’s weird. They charge you for sauces in a small plastic cup. Even thought the cheapest chicken dish is $8. What? You can’t give me condiments included with my meal? I believe I saw a line item for oxygen and light on the menu, and a shared table fee. That means if you don’t eat, you pay a fee to sit with your friends. Korea must be weird.

El loco

Why can’t you get your condiments at the drug store like everyone else. That’s where me and Mrs. Loco get them.


This happened only a few days ago the cops are putting disinformation, idk why because they’re looking for him right now allegedly they know who he is


The incident took place at around 10:15 am on Thursday, March 6, according to police. – Not a few days ago –
