When I first looked at the still image I thought, it was a homeless person. But, when I looked at the video I noticed, his hair was kept, his clothes were clean, his sneakers were new, and he even had knee sleeves and a fairly good bike. This is an act of malice

With the police so laid back and nonchalant about crime i am hoping that eric adams gets rid of the current police Commissioner of nyc and appoints a person of color who is not a de blasio follower and supporter. The current police Commissioner puts me to sleep when he talks and in no way is he tough on crime. He is more scared about hurting liberal feelings.

When the DA will decline to prosecute, the NYPD and/or arresting officer can be sued for false arrest. Why bother going through all of the motions and paperwork when you’re just going to get screwed in the end? And the criminal will still be out on the streets maybe even repeating his offenses with no consequences.

Read the story, man who ripped a chain off a woman, if no video would they have said he was black? Majority of the crimes committed in NYC by minorities against minorities, the black lady shot murdered in cold blood by another black lady one bullet in the back of the head in Brooklyn, the video doesn’t lie. Violence is violence, crime is crime. It destroys families and our communities. This has to stop, unleash the NYPD, MTA police, ATF, ICE, HSI, FBI, Secret Service, State Police, US Marshals, Corrections Officers and any other branch of law enforcement you can think of on these criminals “native born and foreign born who are here undocumented” rescind Bail reform, place detainers on criminal aliens once they do their NYS time get them deported, right now NYS is letting them walk, won’t contact ICE and they are back in the street, give judges their power back and let’s fix this problem.

Why does the Radical Right want everything to be PC?

Is there some indication this was a hate crime? Or just your feelings?

Would this be booked as an Asian hate crime? Did you know that most Asian “hate” crimes are committed by people with mental health issues… Who are mostly… Black.

They are made responsible for their actions (inactions), healthcare and wealth.

So basically…

Never.

Yes another black criminal harming, attacking and robbing an innocent white person. Have the police found this person or is he out and about committing other crimes? I wonder who he stole the bicycle from

You get what you vote for. And elections aren’t stolen not even Trump’s, right? So you’ll get what you vote for… Even if it’s not what you’re voting for.

Where is the up roar from the minority community leaders on all of the recent attacks by minorities and how they are all going to be portrayed in the same light, yea yea the liberals will respond to my comment how im narrow minded and a Trumper and i just dont understand what its like to be a minority. But If the minority community wants real change on how they are viewed then they must fix their own problems from within first.

Maybe criminal activity is accepted in Black culture especially Black Americans. It’s not because of poverty. Many Asians are very poor. Maybe it’s not because of race either. I bet the level of crime amongst Black people from Africa and the Caribbean is much lower than American Blacks. Maybe the culture of Black Americans just tolerates it. Maybe something to think about instead of negative knee jerk reaction.

Most of the wanted pictures and videos released by the NYPD speak for themselves. However the public is being told to ignore certain commonalities based on race when it comes to shooting crime and assault suspects or risk being cancelled and labeled as racists for pointing it out. But when its time to vote or for hand outs its just fine to point it out if your voting for or giving to a poc.

I dunno, why do “minorities” have to clarify their broader community image but not, say, genders? Men commit an overwhelming amount of all, and specifically, violent crime. It’s a statistical fact if you take the time to research that, and it holds completely true when you subtract race from the equation. Males are categorically predisposed toward criminality and violence. But I do not see any cry to have all the “good ones” issue press releases defending the integrity of most men. What is so special about being a male that exempts them from your demand, but not “minorities”?
