Right, and a shooting, although self inflicted just a few blocks away from here!

This is the second time the local school was on lockdown.

Check Roosevelt Ave, Corona Washington Heights and Woodside. There are a crap load of illegals being busted in on a daily basis. Is anyone aware of the millions of migrants breaking through the border because of Latin America being taken over by Chineese and Russian military. Do your diligence and Google it. It’s being kept quiet!!

He was simply raising money to cover the costs of AOCs election so how dare anybody suggest this person belongs in prison.

Ecuadoran, Honduran, Guatemalan or a Salvi – Latino for sure we must be vigilant in this neighborhood, things are changing very fast in a blink of an eye, up-tick in crime, there is no sense of community, some people don’t know how to live in harmony with their neighbors, they flick their cigarettes, dump their trash on the street, spitting as you walk by barely missing your shoe, this says a lot, you can measure a person by these simple standards and pretty much tell what type of people they are. I have witnessed in my travels overseas in poor countries, the hogs are tied behind the kitchen, the scraps are dumped out the window into the pig pen, flies everywhere and the stench unbearable while they play cards or bingo uneffected, oblivious, these are the people we now have here, they value an SUV, Flat Screen TV, new sneakers, latest i-phone but don’t value being a good neighbor and living in community.

He looks Hispanic and I’m sure us tax payers are paying for his sad existance somewhere in the United States via EBT ,Section eight and every other Democratic protective services they can muster up for them. Our President is fighting with everything he’s got to put an end to these “illegals”” once and for all and eliminate the senseless murders and shootings in our communities.

Our president admitted he used illegal immigrant labor. Section 8, EBT and WIC etc are actually a way for corporation s to keep payroll expenses down and squirm out of paying a market or living wage, these are actually corpoate “protective services”.

It’s work’s fault… why not just give money away! Think of as it was donation! Immigrants need more public support!

They had no money apparently (which I find kind of hard to believe) he says the insurance companies pay them but what about the non prescription items they sell? Like the detergent displayed right by the door?

Just need Mexico to pay for it, the way Trump promised

Money and not drugs? Unbelievable… silly thief, don’t you know that pharmacies predominantly use insurance and not cash?? What a fool. Not long before he’s caught now! Thanks be to the almighty JVB [sike]

Maybe the whole thing was a cover for a revenge> that pharmacy is really weird. It is always empty. I think Cops should explore the theory of a drug organization behind it.

Ummm, I’m with Catherine on this..I know they are a privately owned business but they are closed weekends. I can understand Sunday, but Saturday? And they are only open until 6pm. Most people who live in the area but work elsewhere won’t be able to make it in time.

So not only does he terrorize our neighborhood but once apprehended he will be represented by a public defender, paid by our Tax money. This madness has to stop.

Just a wild guess – he’s in the country illegally. Maybe even deported but snuck back into the country.

Try this on for size.

“However, quantitative research has consistently shown that being foreign born is negatively associated with crime overall and is not significantly associated with committing either violent or property crime. If an undocumented immigrant is arrested for a criminal offense, it tends to be for a misdemeanor. Researchers suggest that undocumented immigrants may be less likely to engage in serious criminal offending behavior because they seek to earn money and not to draw attention to themselves. Additionally, immigrants who have access to social services are less likely to engage in crime than those who live in communities where such access is not available.”

Possibly, but “smart” illegals try to keep a low profile so they don’t get deported.

Jerry yes the criminal, in a robbery was black or Hispanic, but the criminal in almost ever mass murder is a white man who is simply “disturbed.”

I got 31 thumbs down. Can anyone of those thumbs down tell me why I’m wrong? There is a major problem with crime and violence in Black and Hispanic communities in NYC. Denying the problem and calling me a bigot is not the answer.

Jerry, have you done any research on systemic racism, and why people of marginalized groups might resort to crime?

Don’t you know it’s insensitive to speak the truth? Given that this is a sanctuary city, we’re supposed to embrace these thugs.

Trumptards are gullible enough to believe this 😂😂

That’s your best understanding of “sanctuary cities” yet you think you can understand immigration policy…

The mass murderers who shoot up people’s kids, schools, churches, movies and concerts are always white!

What do you need to see to catch him? HD camera is definitely great and cheap but does not give you dna sample. Allow shop owners to be armed, this is the solution. We are getting more and more low life criminal pieces of dirt in our neighborhood these days. This gun looks way too much like the 7 train platform brawl shooter, I am going to put my bets on gang initiation or some other kind of gang related issue.
108 needs to get more aggressive.

Its reported in other news outlets that he shouted “Where’s the condoms” No joke. On top of the building at the corner of 58th and Skillman is a camera. Is that a NYPD camera?

How long did it take for 108 to respond?

What kind of criminal scums are we walking among when we stroll in Sunnyside. Where is the new rich folks, pub owners and patrons who like to eat on sidewalk tables sipping their sangria’s on 43 and Skillman, can’t they get their connections to do something about what’s happening to Sunnyside?

Right. The police precinct is just too far away. It’s almost in the river!
