i want my safe streets back

tell me again why we need to defund the Police department?

I thought we didn't like cops anymore?!?!?!

Sorry, but you chose to protest the police murdering someone on video.

Saying police brutality is bad means you are no longer entitled to protection of any kind.

There is no nuanced stance where we can support good cops but not bad ones. It’s all black and white! Maga again!


Crime has already gone up
Thanks protesters! You can solve the crimes

Welcome to the jungle baby

Why were the cops even called? I thought people wanted them defunded. Careful what you wish for.


“The suspect is described as black” so when will astoria start to riot and protest? where are all the white people with BLM signs? lol

Were they wrongfully murdered by police?

Oh, no? Doesn’t really relate to George Floyd’s murder I guess.

See the protestors are protesting his murder, not all crimes that ever happen. Wow you’re REALLY out of the loop, google his name.

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
