Man, I really wished that was a white guy that did it. But then again if it were, it probably wouldn’t have made news anywhere.

Guiliani got rid of the squeegie people but this mayor can’t get rid of the trumpet playing panhandlers? Also I noticed squeegie people ,beggars, and water selling people on queens blvd. This is what Im going to pay a million dollars for a house for in Sunnyside? I don’t get it, the other article says housing is going up 120%, ,why? To live with this?

dump the trump.....et

it is the height of arrogance to bring a trumpet out in public and “perform”. what these quote unquote musicians don’t get is they are actually practicing and everyone around them has to endure the pain. its unbelievably rude and selfish. many thanks to the person who took the trumpet…he performed a community service for us all!

The theft occurred in the plaza under the 7 train (where people are sitting)
in broad daylight.

Property worth $2,000 was taken. The musician’s trumpet was snatched.

I fail to see the humor in this.

Give the 108 time, this was no grand larceny let alone robbery. Chalk it up as lost property, nothing to see here move along, crime is down. Viva the Sandinista!

I’m more baffled at your inability to read clearly. Do what your teachers and parent(s) told you to do in 1st grade and re-read that article.

no, but a bullet definitely will. i fully support open carry. thugs have no power when everyone can protect themselves.

No one asked whether or not you support open carry, but now I’m concerned as to how quickly you jumped to violence as a solution.

The point is, I think we should shoot people that steal trumpets. It’s that serious!

6’5″???? 190, shouldn’t be hard to find. The trumpet guy is annoying anyway. Look for a basketball playing trumpet guy.
