Where is my other post about this not being a crime? Why was it sensored? No curses, just an observation and opinion. Shame.

Likely because it wasn’t a good comment.

Glad Sunnyside Post is making some effort to disregard bad comments.

Sal from Sunnyside

my comment of “timely reporting” wasn’t approved, but Al from Sunnyside’s “it might be el loco” gets approved?

These articles are terrible. They don’t lead to anything other than a bunch of comments making a joke about sexual harassment. Which for women, is not fun.


I am sure MTA’a operational cameras at station that is used to catch turnstile hoppers will be able to catch this guy too..


Maybe he had an itch. Or are we going to go after and video tape what might be natural human biological reactions? When that occurs you might have to adjust it. You forget to zipper yourself up and you may get video taped and wanted by the police.
