Return To The South Richmond Hill Horror

South Richmond Hill, Queens, New York

Spring in South Queens is off to a despairingly dangerous start, particularly with targeted muggings of elderly Indian Sikh men in the same vicinity that’s located on Lefferts Blvd near a Guawdara Temple one block west. First was a violent assault on a 70-year-old man going on an early morning stroll and a little over a week later two other elderly Sikh men were mugged and robbed by two men on the same corner around the same time. In both incidents, the criminals knocked their turbans  religious headwear off their heads, giving credence to Sikh community leaders theories of being hate crimes against them.

 

The two men involved in the brutal attacks eventually got arrested after being on the lam for a few weeks, one of them who was involved in both crimes. Yet something caught my eye from the Queens Chronicle report after the young man involved in the second attack:

Two Sikh men were attacked Tuesday morning in Richmond Hill near where a hate crime against a member of the same community occurred last week. One man is in custody and another is still at large.

The incident occurred near the intersection of 95th Avenue and Lefferts Boulevard just after 7 a.m., according to police, a block from the Sikh Cultural Society gurdwara.

Officers found the two men, 76 and 64 years old, with minor injuries to the head and body. A preliminary investigation determined that the victims were approached by two men who struck them both on the head and body with closed fists and a wooden stick. The victims were taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center.

The assailants removed religious headwear from the men and stole their money. The incident is being treated as a robbery and a hate crime, according to police.

Hezekiah Coleman, 20 years old, who police say was squatting at 95-54 Lefferts Blvd., was taken into custody and charged with robbery, assault, hate crimes and aggravated harassment, officials said.

Police believe the suspect they have not caught also committed last week’s assault against Nirmal Singh, 70, said Community Affairs Officer Scott Adelman of the 102nd Precinct at the Community Board 9 meeting on Tuesday night.

The 102nd has a directed post at 95-54 Lefferts Blvd., which appears to be abandoned. It is believed that both suspects were squatters there.

“That car will not leave until the perpetrator is caught,” said Adelman.

Sukhjinder Singh Nijjar is the chairman of external affairs and the elections commission at the Sikh Cultural Society. He says the society is working with the precinct and hate crimes unit in the aftermath of the attacks.

He hopes to see increased police presence and is working to get a car permanently assigned for the temple area. On Wednesday, he and a group of about 15 community members met at the temple at 3 a.m. to patrol.

“We’re exploring all these avenues to see if we can have this area covered, not only for our local Sikh community, but also many other multicultural communities in this area,” he said, adding that the society will continue to hold elected officials accountable on delivering on their promises.

Strong words indeed, especially to elected officials who continue to remain insouciant to the rapid rise of crime in Queens and the other four boroughs and most of all to the party all the time mayor Eric Adams. But in the case they should hold the Queens Chronicle accountable for getting the address of the house were the suspects were squatting in (twice in the same article). The actual address is 94-54 Lefferts Blvd, and  this house has a sordid past and currently is casting an ominous aura. I covered this house exactly one year ago right after a man was found dead on the porch one morning, a result of being bludgeoned in the head by two other homeless men.

Evidently, this abandoned house has got even worse and more squatters are occupying it even if they can’t get inside. 

The porch is still reliable to sleep rough in, although the mattresses and everything else that’s being hoarded here looks to provide enough comfort.

BBQ grill for cookouts. The ramp (probably installed there for handicapped or wheelchair-bound elderly residents) has become a reliable storage and disposal unit and also to ward off trespassers. And possibly other homeless people.

There were no signs of life around this makeshift shelter, although there was evidence of recent inhabitants occupying this despairing disaster area, like this tin of food and a fresh pile of human dung by the steps.

 

Except for this stray black cat that was eerily giving me the stink eye.

Interesting how there is no encampment set up in the spacious backyard, And it’s hard to tell if there’s any sign of a break in. Which would make sense if a criminal element would want a place to hide

Although with the way this mattress is placed outside on the porch, it looks like it was thrown there following an inspection or maybe the recent NYPD raid to search for the hate crime suspects.

 

 

 

 And there have been inspections of this house from what this water damaged ticket on the fence displays.

Apparently by the Department of Sanitation and not the Department of Buildings,  (hey good job Jessie!)

The city was also benevolent enough to give the owner of this horror house three months to pay for it or to fight it in court. Given that this property got even worse the past year and is now a safe but repulsive haven for recidivist and budding criminals as much as it is for desperate homeless people, surely PSM MGMT are quite intimidated by such an arbitrary demand by our bureaucratic authorities.

Although the D.O.B. actually did try to put the owner of this property on notice for enabling squatting on his porch but apparently it was easily removed. Which is kind of sad given they waited about eight months to go back there to tape one up.

For all the talk about how “public safety is the prerequisite for prosperity” Mayor Adams has been doing nothing but drone sloganeering and talking points to get stuff done to bring down crime on the streets and in this case hold recidivist derelict property owners accountable as well, just like his abominable asshole predecessor de Blasio. Nobody is going to prosper with violent sociopaths roaming around and hiding in the shadows waiting to prey on the citizenry and the New Bad Days in New York City will continue to sow fear and ultimately more injury, physically and financially.

Especially in South Richmond Hill, because it’s happening again.

PIX News

A 63-year-old Sikh man said he was attacked by a man brandishing a gun and demanding money on Mother’s Day morning. It is the latest in a recent string of incidents of Sikh residents being attacked in the same neighborhood.

Kuldip Singh fought off his attacker. He had bruises and bandages to show he put up a strong fight.

“He showed a gun and tell me give me money,” said Singh. “He hit my head, my nose.”

It was Sunday around 10:30 in the morning when Singh was out for a walk. He told PIX11 News that, seemingly out of nowhere, a guy approached him on a bike, showed a gun and tried to rob him.

Singh grabbed the suspect’s arm, and both fell to the ground. That’s when police said Singh was pistol whipped. He suffered bruises and lacerations to the head, a broken nose and fractures in his right hand. The suspect was unable to get anything from him and ran off.

Harpreet Toor, with the Sikh Cultural Society, is an advocate for the community.

“Honestly, I’m happy he fought back instead of just handing over the money,” said Toor. “I know it is dangerous, but you have to draw a line somewhere.”

Since early April, there have been at least three other attacks against Sikh residents in South Richmond Hill.

This isn’t going to stop whether or not that house is being illegally occupied or not, but it’s squalid existence is an integral factor of why these attacks are continuing and will continue. Day or night.

This house needs to be torn down. Stat.

 

 

 

 

The New York State Democrats Ratfucked Themselves

Nice try

The Five Boroughs, New York

City And State

New York’s highest court tossed out both congressional and state Senate district maps on Wednesday, ruling that they were both drawn in violation of the constitution.

In a majority 4-3 decision, the state Court of Appeals ruled that the maps must be redrawn by a neutral expert, acknowledging that “it will likely be necessary to move the congressional and senate primary elections to August,” Chief Judge Janet DiFiore wrote, ordering the Supreme Court to oversee the process.

While the court ruled both maps were procedurally unconstitutional, the judges wrote that the congressional map was clearly gerrymandered “with impermissible partisan purpose.”

The decision comes after the new, bipartisan Independent Redistricting Committee, established by voters in 2014, failed to come to an agreement on the electoral maps, putting the power in the hands of the Democrat-controlled state Legislature, which approved the newly redrawn maps in February. 

“The legislature responded by creating and enacting maps in a nontransparent manner controlled exclusively by the dominant political party – doing exactly what they would have done had the 2014 constitutional reforms never been passed,” DiFiore wrote. 

The now-voided maps would have given Democrats advantages in 22 of the state’s 26 congressional districts. The new state Senate map redistributed two more of the 63 districts to New York City, following population trends, and gave  Democrats a better position in three Republican-held districts. 

After Democrats released the maps, Republicans promptly filed a lawsuit arguing that the process for approving the maps was “constitutionally defective” and that the congressional map in particular was “unconstitutionally gerrymandered in favor of the majority party,” according to the decision issued Wednesday. 

The fact that the NY Senate Democrats thought they could pull this obvious gerrymandering off to usurp elected offices from Republicans while acting collectively self-righteous trying to justify it is beyond hilarious. Still reeling from losing a seat after a low census count and a bit upset at Nicole Malliotakis’s victory over incumbent Max Rose last year and opportunistically taking advantage of late filing by an appointed bipartisan commission to draw the maps, they decided to redesign district lines to screw her and other incumbent Republican candidates like they did it on an etch-a-sketch.

Their attempt to ratfuck Rep. Malliotakis was so brazen, by extending her district to upper class liberal Park Slope, Downtown Brooklyn and slowly gentrifying town Sunset Park that even Bill de Blasio was champing at the bit to run, but decided not to because of his own polls overwhelming negative responses to him fortunately. But it gave former Max Rose a better advantage to retake his seat back, although it’s quite suspect that this was set up for the Blaz as a reward for pushing Big Pharma’s vaccines the Biden administration inspired mandates in his last 6 months in office.

Apparently, the State Dems gerrymandering also revealed how nervous they were for establishment congressional hack Manhattan Rep. Jerry Nadler by redrawing his districts map that did a wicked NYC Ferry u-turn into the waterfront in Williamsburg where luxury public housing towers were recently built which (if mostly occupied) have produced a new liberal democrat base and slithers into predominantly Jewish neighborhoods who lean conservative neighborhoods that vote Republican.

This district map was drawn so cynically to favor Nadler to assure another term in Congress that it’s actually designed like a gun. 

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FKZHLQRWUAI89kX?format=jpg&name=small

Governor Kathy “Clown” Hochul immediately voted to approve the redrawn maps to the chagrin of state Republicans and the people that voted to make brazen gerrymandering attempts illegal back in the 2014 election.  This decision and the new district lines led to a surge of “democrat socialists” looking to capture seats in assembly and state offices as well. State Senator and deputy majority leader Michael Gianaris defiantly proclaimed there was nothing wrong or illegal with the unethically illegal redrawn maps he and his fellow desperate Dems drew up. What makes his arrogant proclamation defense so ludicrous is that the congressional maps in the five boroughs was so amateurishly redrawn and obviously illegal it comes off actually worse than what Tom Delay did in Texas 20 years ago to assure one party GOP dominance in his state.

Now a judge has righteously destroyed the Dem’s attempt to ratfuck democracy to establish their own one party dominance in New York and an immensely ineffective and incompetent one party rule to boot, effectively kiboshing the all the fauxgressive establishment incumbents and democrat socialist candidates (or shall I say fauxialist?) leading to all primary elections being moved to August from June. Can’t think of a more deserving fate for a collective group of illiberal liberal politicians to try to rebrand and normalize gerrymandering in an effort to fight machine politics by acting like a machine political apparatus themselves. Truly the biggest and dumbest self-own in NY State political machinating ever.

 

 

Scenes Of Queens: Maroon 5G

This scene takes place in Long Island City.

For some of those who are cognizant of the neighborhood (mainly tourists and real estate speculators), it’s mostly known for it’s wide array of steel and glass towers that have been developed in the Queens Plaza area in a remarkably short period of time. But beyond the luxury tower pestilence are vast areas of industrial and warehouse buildings and now it’s known to have the first LinkNYC 5G wifi transmitter tower in the five boroughs.

Remarkably for a 50 ft obelisk, it doesn’t really give out what an eyesore it is and it doesn’t really look distinguishable from each of the corner lampposts.

Until you actually get closer to it.

Aesthetically, this wifi sentinel really gives off  dystopian society vibes.  But it’s too massively conspicuous to be something out of Black Mirror, it kinda looks something illustrated in 60’s/70’s science fiction movies or from cheesy serials like Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers than Star Trek or Battlestar Gallatica. But what it does share from Mirror is its potential to usurp personal data on a wider scale than the current crop of wifi kiosks that were induced on NYC streets years ago by Mayor Bill de Blasio and his consigliere Maya Wiley, spending billions of dollars giving Google offshoot CityBridge a gaudy contract and replacing old phone booths with LinkNYC kiosks, which turned out to be another horrendous profligate spending boondoggle for taxpayers when it turned out that all their promises of online equity turned to shit when they ran out of money to expand them to other boroughs failing to build up revenue from advertising that never transpired and only installed a fifth of them.

 

So instead of terminating this contract after City Bridge lost 75 million dollars, de Blasio and municipal tech agency Department of Information, Technology and Telecommunications gave CityBridge a city budget mulligan with a new contract for these creepy three story 5G q-tips. Though not much is said if the city will at least take down the current ones which have been commonly and mostly used by the homeless as headboards for their cardboard street mattresses as well as multimedia entertainment amenity and has also been vulnerable to violent vandalism

 

It’s truly hilarious how they market these behemoth eyesores as a “game changer” that’s going to “reimagine” how people use the internets, even more funnier is how the city and the CityBridge proclaims how it will make it more equitable for lower income areas, which strains credulity since they shortchanged most of these areas with their original wifi kiosks when the speculative money ran out and didn’t come in (most of the advertising was for NYC municipal service agencies, which ironically and atypically also short changes low income area residents). Which is why it’s hilarious they decided to plant this thing in a desolate area in Long Island City, home to the biggest growth of luxury tower pestilence this city has seen in the last half decade and rapid gentrification, hardly an area that needs access for internet service, especially free service.

Although it’s probably because residents of the targeted neighborhoods to plant these 5G sentinels would be instantly repelled to see one of these drop on their block not only because of their ugly presence, but the obvious widespread invasion of privacy and another inevitable rise in rents and gentrification that usually comes with any upgrade that comes to a town. Surely that factor came into mind when the city placed it in this desolate industrial area in LIC instead of the promised “internet deserts” of towns like Brownsville and Hollis where “NIMBY” resistance will surely surface. And planted it right by the Typhin Steel factory warehouse building, whose owner’s son just happens to be New York City’s top YIMBY actorvist Ben Carlos Typhin of Open New York, a tech bro and gal based real estate lobby group consisting of millenial pro-over-development fauxgressive scientologists that have influenced the city’s “affordable” housing policies and radical changes to street infrastructure which led to the rise of the luxury public housing phenomenon that built more housing for the rich that don’t exist and a neofeudal competition lottery for lower and middle income earners to get access to those apartments and the proliferation of street curb restaurant shanties and bike lanes that have suffocated once ample road space.

 

Currently, this 5G tower hasn’t been activated yet and construction for nearly a hundred of these heinous data succubi will begin and up and running by Autumn, provided they don’t run into community resistance, which is surely a given since the city doesn’t even care to deign to the concerns of taxpayers anymore and can just drop this shit on the streets and rightly expect acclimation because this city is run by kakistrocracy of elected officials obeisant and subservient to corporations, in this case Google. Even though internet desert towns will soon be able to stream, tweet, and post Facebook/Instagram and Tik Tok faster, this convenience culture provided by the 5G sentinels comes with a heavier and uglier price of municipal spending waste and sacrifice of personal freedoms.

 

 

 

 

 

The Ballad Of Frank James

Frank James had had enough

New York, New York

Two weeks ago, a lonely and angry man took the morning Manhattan bound rush hour N train from southwest Brooklyn. He came on board dressed for safety measures wearing a helmet and  MTA safety vest and lugging a hand rolling cart filled with firecrackers and smoke bombs. In between stations, this man was muttering to himself and started fumbling with the cart’s contents, then he put on a gas mask and ignited two smoke bombs and pulled out a 9mm gun and shot 33 rounds at his fellow commuters. During the fusillade he managed to hit 10 of them as 19 other people sustained injuries while trying to flee into the next car. Shockingly and luckily no one died from the incident, only because the man’s gun jammed and also because he wasn’t aiming for vital organs.

Like something from the beginning of an action movie or t.v. show, the man walked away from the chaos he caused after dumping the gear he was wearing and the cart in the train, then walked past people lying injured and bleeding on the 36th St. Station platform, past commuters fleeing for safety and walked across to the arriving R train and got off that train at the next station. Then he took a stroll to nearby Park Slope where he got on a bus to transfer to an F train station and got off in the Lower East Side while eluding hundreds of cops and FBI agents deployed to the scene of the crime.

Once the NYPD and the legacy local news media identified the shooter as Frank James, he was roaming around Brooklyn and Manhattan for over 30 hours until he got to his last destination in the East Village, where he stopped at a couple of high end restaurants and walked around and rested on a bench by a restaurant shanty in plain sight, all while the NYPD were in a frantic search to find him. When James went into a McDonalds on 1st Avenue, a man working at a shop next door recognized him and call the cops to pick him up and they finally collar him (it also turned out that there were four other witnesses who made reported calls, which also included James).

There hasn’t been much of a follow up about what motivated Frank James to start blasting people. In fact, we would know a lot more because he had a youtube channel with videos of him ranting about the rising crime and dysfunctional lack of public services that has turned NYC into its current dystopian state. In other words, James gripes mostly jibed with a vast majority of opinions of New Yorkers (according to Mayor Adams, who guesstimates this amount to 30 million every time he gets asked a question) including yours truly of this blog your reading here. But we will never ever know because youtube abolished his channel and banned his videos from public view (Although the NYPD actually could have that footage to use against him during his trial).

The last time a man committed a mass shooting on a New York transit line was when Colin Ferguson shot up a LIRR train also with an semi-automatic handgun and killed six people and maimed 19 others and during the morning rush.  The distinction about is not this that James didn’t kill anyone or that he was not of sound mind when he maimed his fellow commuters like Ferguson, but with the predominance of social media and networking, his motives were out there for all to see and his vulgar and racist social media disturbingly had validity to them which served as a portent for his own mass shooting in regards the myriad crises that are dominating New York City society. In a way, this actually resembles the Bernard Goetz shooting of four Black men back in 1984 when he decided to pack heat because of the relentless crime wave during the worst era of the bad old days. It even bears an unsettling resemblance to the cult horror classic movie “God Told Me Too”, where people also engaged in mass shootings and responded by getting their orders by man who lives in the clouds. This also was recently revealed by current Mayor Eric Adams who claimed that God told him to run for mayor(funny I thought it was Real Estate Board of New York who told him to).

Another aspect from the mass shooting is that the Bernie Goetz of the New Bad Days probably did it to become a viral sensation by manifesting his bloody fantasies. But what he actually did do was expose the kakistocracy that has overwhelmed NYC municipal services, the NYPD and the mass transit system as well. Because what pushed Frank James over the edge derived from the dearth in mental health services which Bill de Blasio and his tax boondoggle wife laundered a billion dollars from that still hasn’t been accounted for and the homeless service providers that James felt short changed him and left him despaired, anguished and furious. Plus it was recently exposed that one of the non-profit service providers James went to is a million and a half dollars in the red as it’s top executives continue to make six figure salaries. If James found out that the city has dedicated more funding for mental health services to nite club owners and their big spending patrons, he probably would have aimed higher.

There’s another disturbing aspect about James’ senseless hate-filled attack; the fact that he knew he could pull it off and with ease, despite his mishaps. Because the reason why James was able to trudge around two boroughs for a day and a half is that the cameras at the two stations were he got on and got off malfunctioned and the NYPD didn’t get a good description of him. At first James was described as being just 5 and a half feet tall instead of the over 6 ft. man that wound up plastered on cellphone screen social media apps, which enabled him to walk in public in plain sight as cops and federal agents headed to his crime scene. The NYPD claimed they didn’t have his description because the fiber optic cables didn’t transmit the footage fast enough.

The MTA’s own ass covering for this deficiency being that those Sunset Park station cameras happened to be the only ones that were out of service even though the other 10,000 that are in the transit system were working just fine that day. If only there was something the transit system bosses could have done to make sure those cameras were still working, like allocating money to keep them running 24/7/365 instead of pissing it away on marketing and advertising their minimally used OMNY pay and travel ads…

 

It’s laughingly ironic that the MTA would spend more expense and effort for these promotional gimmicks to be seen than for people behaving suspiciously. But this is the worst fucking transit system in the universe with a top brass that thinks it’s normal to keep a paper transit map up after putting up a digital screen map right next to it.

 

Frank James also made a mockery of N.Y.’s finest, who are collectively suffering an horrendous year as felonious crimes collectively rise nearly 50%.  Like when NYPD Commissioner Sewell praised her officers for tracking him down, it turned out James actually called the cops himself and told him where he was going to be, which Frank gleefully scoffed at them during his arrest by asking them what took them so long.

Mayor Adams was spared the embarrassment of this indignity mostly because he was holed up in Gracie Mansion with COVID-19 with a “rasbie” throat (his mangled words not mine). But still, James made Adams look like an idiot even more since he was able to smuggle a gun and ordinance into the transit system when three weeks earlier the Mayor and Governor Kathy “Clown” Hochul announced new units of extra cops and health professionals (basically subway orderlies) to be deployed to the stations to prevent criminal behavior, stop criminals and aid mentally disturbed folks. Then Mayor Adams proceeded to make an idiot out of himself by blaming social media for allowing him to post his vitriolic uploaded videos and posts on their platforms, even after they already deplatformed them. Even though the NYPD counter terrorism squad already has a unit to monitor terror threats domestic and international and used it very diligently tracking protesters during 2020’s Black Lives Matter protests. Too bad this dedication wasn’t present when Frank James mimicked a mass shooting attack on a subway train and promoting extreme measures and final solutions for his targets of indignation and frustration.

Another thing Frank James mass shooting exposed was obnoxious preening by the city’s fauxgressive establishment Democrat elected officials making dickhead self-promoting photo ops feigning to project strength while pathetically trying to muster inspiration for people to continue to use the subway and stay put in the city that is getting less safer every day.

It didn’t take that long for media’s interest in the subway mass shooting to vaporize, because “regular” shootings on the city streets continued to escalate, there were 15 shootings just days after his arrest and there was also a gory fatal attraction murder in Forest Hills that took over the news. But leave it Frank Adams to also make a gory mockery of Mayor Adams continuing failure to prevent gun violence by waiting months to get the NYPD anti-gun units out on the streets following rebranding them as “neighborhood safety teams” and making sure they get re-educated on constitutional rights for future stops and seizures. Which is something they should have learned in school and been reeducated during their academy training when stop and frisk was determined unconstitutional by a judge five years ago. It should also be pointed out that Frank James used a registered gun and not a ghost gun, the latter which is getting the most media attention and has become the weapon of choice on the streets.

So Frank James’ arraignment went down without even much of a peep or even a followup, which doesn’t provide any closure for his victims, one of whom lost the feeling in his legs and lost his job or genuine security for millions of commuters still wary of taking the subway again, but it’s provided solace and security for the kakistocracy that continues to fuck up New York City.

New Bad Days 95: Mayor Adams And Commissioner Sewell Breaking Windows Revival Too Slow To Stop Rampant City Wide Crime Momentum And Fails To Strike Fear Into Recidivists And Gangbangers; Transgender Woman Kills His Third Girlfriend, Chops Her To Pieces And Leaves Her Dismembered On The Streets; Squatters Airbnb Scheme Ruined By Triple Shooting By House They Were Hosting In; Father And Son Pizzeria Owners Deliver Justice To Stop Two Muggers While Getting Stabbed; Gangbanger Fucks Up Drive By And Murders A Pre-Teen Boy Instead; Man Fucks Up Hit On Another Man By Shooting A Toddler At A Pre-K; Mayor Adams Destroys Homeless Encampments Despite No Quality Alternatives For Homeless People; Gang Beats Down App Food Delivery Guy At Order Destination; Central Park Has Become A Target For Arson; Muggings And Violence Escalate At Busy Fast Food Restaurants; Motorcycle Gang Lynches And Robs Father And Son Following Traffic Accident; Fancy Restaurant Shanty Flames Up; East Village Bodega Suffers Months Of Harassment By Teenage Punks; Tourist Comes To NYC To Continue Serial Killing Spree Of Homeless People; Man Resists Arrest While Beating Cops; Grand Theft Auto Reports Reach A Higher Plateau Along With Shootings, Larcenies, Slashings, Muggings Of Elderly People, Desperate And Wanton Shoplifting, Building Fires, Random Attacks And Teenage Criminal Mischief

With crime still continuing precipitous rises in every category in February and in the last remaining weeks of winter in March, Mayor Eric Adams and Commissioner Keechant Sewell announced their long awaited rollout of the new rebranded anti-crime street patrol “neighborhood safety” units in 25 precincts in the five boroughs (well actually 4, because Staten Island is apparently not that dangerous right now, although they did add one following this grand announcement) where crime is the worst. Mayor Adams also announced that he will revived the heralded and also reviled “Broken Windows” policing policy that former Mayor Giuliani and NYPD Commissioner Bratton used to famously bring down crime in the 90’s into the new millenium while it also unfortunately led to rampant profiling and the arbitrary and discriminatory stop and frisk tactics which were eventually found in violation of the U.S. Constitution. Although Adams reassured the public that BW would be done appropriately and respectful of the rights of the people/suspects.

But in keeping up with the heinous legacy of his predecessor Mayor Big Slow de Blasio defiant proclivity for tardiness, Adams decided to wait to send these tactical gun removal units out into the streets to “get it right”, like making these cops prepared to bone up on constitutional rights which for some reason they didn’t learn in school nor at the police academy in College Point and it sure seems vetting these officers was an even more arduous task ( who knows maybe the new uniforms came in late as well).

This delayed deployment has led to 37% rise in felonious crimes for the month of March, showing a big similarity to the logistical delay of the subway safety teams that were announced with great fanfare the month before as robberies and assaults have been happening with alarming frequency. The most consistent and compelling rise in these criminal categories has been in auto theft.

But instead of leading this new proactive policing initiative on the front lines like Adams likes to call the streets of NYC and being a general/shepherd leading his troops/flock of sheep which he analogously keeps calling his municipal subordinates. Mayor Adams decided to leave town and promote his program in Chicago with the shittiest mayor in America with the most reported shootings in her city in the entire nation, Lori Lightfoot instead.

Then a few days after his meeting with a laughing stock mayor as more shootings continued to plague NYC, Mayor Adams proclaimed the city he runs has a laughing stock to acknowledge the tsunami of crime that has overwhelmed his city. As is want of the swaggering mayor, he follows this up by making a laughing stock of himself, continuing to burn the midnight oil starfucking with celebrities and establishment politicians at elite functions and cross promotional celebrity events run by corporations, acting less like a general fighting wars on local crises and more like a figurehead for the oligarchy that runs this town. The mayor is way too distracted pandering to the rich than purely focusing on protecting his constituents.

Speaking of figureheads, in her first three months as the first Woman Black Police Commissioner of New York City, Sewell has been disturbingly secretive and journophobic, evading every press conference Mayor Adams has had regarding crime and policing. Even worse, she has decided to employ a “confidential advisor” to help her do her job. This position is more like a glorified cop administrative assistant or maybe a midwife for crime, which means she clearly has no idea how to do her job and is unqualified to run the biggest police force in the world.  But she and Adams are not alone, because D.A. offices in the five boroughs can’t even deal with the glut of criminal cases that are coming across their desks and don’t have the budget and the staff to handle them all since officials keep quitting.

Which is why NYC is the official laughingstock ifwhen it come s to fighting crime right now in Adams own dumb words and the only broken windows that need fixing are the ones in City Hall and One Police Plaza.

Brooklyn

In East New York, an 83-year-old transgender woman bludgeoned her 68-year-old girlfriend to death inside her apartment and then chopped her body up with an electric saw. Then she stuffed her torso into a garbage bag and placed them in a shopping cart and left it outside on a street corner. And then a homeless woman took the cart and pushed it halfway down the block and discovered the remains of the victim inside and called 911.

A week later, a homeless man found a leg of the victim sticking out of a garbage bag in a discarded tire on another street a few blocks away from where the torso that was dumped there by the killer after she went shopping at a 99 cent storeto buy more trash bags for the other remains. Surveillance video led to the arrest of the octogenarian slayer who had his victim’s head in his apartment in a new luxury public housing tower that was recently completed only months ago. (How a man convicted of two cold blooded murders was able to get an affordable apartment by the city gives the palpable feeling that he feigned his new gender identity to qualify like how Kip and Henry did to score a cheap apartment in a woman’s only affordable housing building in Bosom Buddies).

When she was a man on city records, he served two long prison sentences for two prior murders. His first killing was back in 1963 when he mercilessly shot his girlfriend to death at his apartment when she was trying to break up with him. After serving little over 20 years for that murder, he stabbed another woman to death in 1984 and stuffed her body in a bag and ditched her in Central Park. Although she only got charged for manslaughter for that crime and incarcerated with only a 6-12 year sentence, she was never granted parole because of his apparent temperament with women in general which manifested in the ways he disposed of the two who were involved with him. This time “she” took advantage of a woman suffering from mental illness and looking for companionship in her autumn years which she never had a chance to live through. The lowlife might have trouble trying to get a lenient sentence this time considering the lame ass joke he made about eating his latest and last victim. But he decided to plead not guilty anyway.

Also in East New York, a 62-year-old woman got killed by a hit-and-run driver when she slipped off the curb on a street corner on the same block where that octogenarian serial killer left a severed torso in a trash bag across the street.

Again in East New York, two men engaged in the shootout on the street in broad daylight about 10 minutes before brunch.

And again in East New York, a man walked into a deli and shot another man in the head at point blank range following a dispute with him, yet his target survived.

And again in East New York at the Shepherd Ave. Station, a man shot another man in the chest at point black range while standing on the platform.

And again in East New York at the Van Siclen Ave. Station, a gang of teenage boys jumped the turnstile and targeted another teenage boy on the platform and lynched him, beating him down to the ground while filming the ultraviolence on their phones for their legacy social media accounts.

And again in East New York, a man pulled over his cruiser on a street curb and hassled and tried to hustle a 13-year-old girl walking with cart filled with laundry to go for a ride with him by saying he knew her mother. The girl flipped him off and the man left in disappointment.

And again in East New York, a man shot a woman twice on a street corner by the Brueklen Houses.

And again in East New York at the Broadway Junction Station, a man shot another man in the chest to settle a dispute on the L platform.

In Park Slope, a Samaritan who writes about superheroes for a living came to the aid of a teenage girl being sadistically bullied and roughed up by other girls and boys her age on the sidewalk who shoved her against the car as one of them placed an armbar on her. Then the little hooligans threatened and proceeded to attack him as one boy punched him in the face then threw a garbage can and also a cobble stone at his face too, leaving the man with scars and causing him to piss blood. With great power comes great responsibility…

Also in Park Slope at the 7th Ave. Station, a man fell onto to tracks when he walked between cars on the G train and got crushed to death.

In Crown Heights, a man chased another man on the street while armed with a gun, then he caught his mark trying to hid in a bodega and shot him to death.

Also in Crown Heights, a man shot at a teenage boy who ran inside an apartment building and missed, and the stray bullet hit a 16-year-old boy who exiting the door as the target ducked.

Again in Crown Heights at the Utica Ave. Station, a vandal pasted photos of lynchings on the walls of the platform.

In East Flatbush, a man got shot to death on the street during a drive by while unloading items from his car. Two women who showed up to ID the body nearly got into a brawl when they found out he was romantically involved with both of them.

Also in East Flatbush, stray bullets from a gangland drive by shooting targeting men on the street wound up killing a 12-year-old boy who got shot in the head and wounding his cousin who got hit multiple times while they were sitting in a parked car eating lunch when most of the fusillade blasted through the side windows. The woman’s 8-year-old niece sitting in the car eating with them in the back seat and then witnessing the carnage miraculously survived. The gunman immediately left the vicinity following the damage and death they caused.

It turns out the dumb motherfucking killer actually shot up the wrong car. Meaning that these weren’t stray bullets but intentional ones, making this a cold blooded murder case.

In Williamsburg, a space heater caught fire at a NYCHA building and spread to the the floors beneath and above her apartment, leading to injuries to eleven other residents including a 3-year-old girl. NYCHA claimed that there were no reported issues with heat shortages yet the woman countered that there were problems for months. And she still needed to use an electrical device to keep warm. Just like the Twin Parks building in the Bronx.

Also in Williamsburg, an off-duty cop beat the shit out of his girlfriend in his apartment following a domestic dispute.

Again in Williamsburg, homeless encampment underneath the BQE got invaded by the NYPD and the Sanitation Dept during a freezing day, following the orders of Mayor Adams to make the city more “humane”. As sanitation workers took their tents, furniture and mattresses into garbage trucks as cops monitored the destruction closely, making sure there was no intervention so Mayor Adams could fulfill his mission to induce the city’s homeless populace to settle for the city’s notoriously dangerous and service deprived shelters, particularly one “safe haven” shelter he recently opened in the Bronx. One of the tents contained a pile of syringes.

Despite Mayor Adams repetitive narrative about how undignified outside encampments are on the streets of your city and his promises of more safe haven shelters after opening a new one in the Bronx after having his NYPD and DSNY destroy this encampment and other ones in the other boroughs, only 5 homeless people accepted, or in this case complied to go to these shelters. Which shows that if you destroy whatever comfort and dignity people have or can only muster in this excessively unaffordable city, they are not going to fucking trust you and take your word for it and just move to another dark corner somewhere in the five boroughs, especially since Adams and Pandering Brad Lander cut a half billion dollars from the Department of Homeless Services. No wonder Adams and his advisors neoliberal deputy mayor Marisa Torres-Springer and corrupted unindicted deputy mayor Phil Banks probably told them its just better to throw homeless tents in the trash.

And again in Williamsburg, a gang of six teenage boys grabbed a man who was walking by them on the sidewalk and then they threw him up against a box truck and beat the shit out of him.

In Flatlands, two cops caught a car theft in process and then a man who stole another car tried to run them over while swerving around their patrol car, leading the sergeant to shoot at him which caused the thief to smash into another car. Then the thief and his accomplice abandoned the vehicle and ran away but the cops nabbed another man who was riding along with the crooks.

Also in Flatlands, a man got hit by a Jeep driver who didn’t yield when he was walking in the crosswalk.

In Bed-Stuy, a man shot his girlfriend to death and then committed suicide with the gun he used on her inside their apartment.

In Bensonhurst, a man hit two women while he was speeding on his e-bike and going the wrong way as they were crossing the street, leaving them on the asphalt with injuries. Cops arrived and arrested him after finding him in possession of baggies of crack and a pipe, meaning that if he wasn’t a basehead he would have walked.

Also in Bensonhurst, a man stole another man’s e-bike after slugging him in the dead of night.

Again in Bensonhurst, a man got shot to death on the stairwell inside an apartment building during a gunpoint robbery attempt involving three other men.

In Brownsville, a man shot another man to death in front of a drug rehab center.

Also in Brownsville, two cars smacked into each other when they reached an intersection and then the drivers got out of their cars to argue when one of them pulled out a gun and ran after the other driver and shot him dead on the street.

Again in Brownsville, a man shot at another man missed his target but hit a 3-year-old girl in the shoulder with a stray bullet as she was coming out of a day care center with her father and with other little children and their guardians and parents as well. The gunman’s actual mark was another man who just picked up his 2-year-old child from the same place.The wounded child’s mother wants to move from her area because of the rampant gun violence but can’t, because moving costs money and rent fabrication/speculation in this city is out of control.

In Bath Beach, a man cracked open a bank’s ATM machine and stole 23 grand.

Also in Bath Beach, a man looted an espresso machine from an electronics store.

Again in Bath Beach, a burglar easily stole $47,000 of cash and jewels from a house around breakfast time.

In Midwood, a man approached a 91-year-old man who was sitting on his stoop and asked him for cash and then he whacked him on the head because he wasn’t grateful for the 4 bucks he was given. Because elderly people sitting on stoops in Brooklyn have so much disposable income.

In Cypress Hills at the Crescent St. Station, a man stabbed a 77-year-old woman in the back for no reason on the platform.

Also in Cypress Hills, two men held up a convenience store at gunpoint a half hour before noon and robbed cash from the register and the cashier’s cellphone.

In Prospect Heights at the Franklin Ave. Station, a man chasing a woman on the stairs slashed a man in the face who obstructed him as the woman got away.

In Prospect Park, two men held up two teenagers at gunpoint and robbed their sneakers, wallets and backpacks.

In Coney Island, a domestic dispute between a woman and her mother in their apartment escalated when the woman poured inflammable liquid on the floor and set it on fire which expanded into a blaze that engulfed the rest of the building. Over 100 firefighters were deployed to put out the inferno started by the spiteful arsonist that led to eight residents getting injured and leaving them homeless, including her mother.

Also in Coney Island at the Stillwell Ave. Station, a woman slashed another woman on both sides of her face after ordering her to stop eating on the D train.

Again in Coney Island, a 7-year-old girl having a bit of fun skipping on the sidewalk on  a nice day got hit by a stray bullet during a drive by shooting that was meant for three men loitering on a street corner.

In Clinton Hill, a man held up another man at gunpoint on the sidewalk and pistol whipped him when he refused to give up his celly and stole it. Then the lowlife hacked the passwords on his bank apps and stole 12 grand from his mark. Never ever do bank transactions on your fucking phone.

Also in Clinton Hill, a man broke into a restaurant and stole 200 bucks from the register.

Again in Clinton Hill, a man stole two cars using a tow truck.

In Fort Greene, a gang of nine men savagely lynched a man on the street and robbed $150 from him while he was lying bloodied and battered on the pavement.

Also in Fort Greene, an app-food delivery worker left his ebike unlocked, and a man took the opportunity to steal it. When the deliverista tried to get it back, the thief got off and punched him in the gut and rode off with it without the key to turn on the electric engine, so he abandoned it on a street blocks away.

Again in Fort Greene, two men competing for street space with their cars escalated when both of them stopped their cars to confront each other face to face and one of them wound up getting slashed in the hand.

And again in Fort Greene, a homeless man whacked a man in the face with an umbrella after the victim refused to spare a dime to him.

And again in Fort Greene at the Fulton St. Station, cops caught a man attempting to beat the fare and resisted arrest and escaped from their clutches after knocking one of them down during the tussle.

And again in Fort Greene, a man got jumped by a gang of men on the street and also got slashed in the leg as he was getting beat down.

And again in Fort Greene, a man pummeled a woman with an umbrella on the sidewalk.

In Downtown Brooklyn, a 62-year-old man with a walker got killed while crossing the street after getting hit by a truck driver.

Also in Downtown Brooklyn at the Jay St./Metrotech Station, a homeless man lying down on a bench answered nature’s call and whipped out his ween and pissed on the floor like a park statue fountain.

Again in Downtown Brooklyn at the Jay St/Metrotech and Court St. Station, a homeless man with a hammer smashed nearly a dozen of OMNY fare scanners on the turnstiles and the MTA is hilariously going to use him 44 large for the damages he made. Good luck getting blood from that stone geniuses. Prior to this act of commuter disobedience vandalism, the kook also menaced a retired cop with a baseball bat on the G train a year earlier.

https://www.nydailynews.com/resizer/o-lPhnRyjjv2_iYOnWPVlxuBu2Q=/800x700/top/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/tronc/ZI6VTMDSNNEIFDN5GKFXX4ACSE.jpg

And again in Downtown Brooklyn and again at the Jay St./Metrotech Station, two men ganged up on a woman on the A train by punching her repeatedly in the face and then beat down a Samaritan who tried to intervene. The men then bounced and one of the goons walked away with a big smile on his face.

https://nypost.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2022/03/new-york-subway-assault-feat-image.jpg?quality=75&strip=all

And again Downtown Brooklyn, a man looted $3,500 worth of lady yoga clothes while feigning to be a worker at a store.

In Kensington, a man engaged in a car chase with cops who spotted his vehicle with tinted windows and different license plates and wound up crashing into a lamppost after the cops cut him off.

In Canarsie, an off-duty C.O. renting out rooms as SRO’s at his house used filthy tactics to evict a woman by smearing shit on her windows and door to get her to leave for being a problem tenant. He changed the locks on her while she was at work as well to force the illegal eviction.

In Bushwick, a raccoon tried to burrow it’s way into an apartment through a shitty light fixture in the kitchen.

Also in Bushwick, two men have been committing serial muggings for nearly 5 months, riding their bikes to case their marks, then jumping them from behind on the sidewalks, placing them in chokeholds and robbing their cash and cellphones. An area man described this as a return to the “bad old days.”

Again in Bushwick at the Montrose Ave. Station, two men ganged up on a 65-year-old commuter on the platform by smashing a bottle over his head and kicking and punching him when he was down on the floor.

In Flatbush, an app-food delivery man who dropped off a pizza at an apartment building snatched a little dog that was wandering around in the hallway and left with it.

Also in Flatbush, a man and a woman got shot following a fight with their assailant at a party in an “event space”.

Again in Flatbush, a five alarm fire destroyed a two-story mixed use building and  engulfed a row of neighboring stores that also perished from the massive blaze. Looks like an opportunity to build more luxury public housing.

In Boerum Hill at the Dekalb Ave. Station, a woman had her purse stolen while catching Z’s on the D train.

In Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, a man got stabbed to death in an apartment by a another man who was dwelling there while under house arrest.

In Seagate, burglars broke into an auto shop and cracked a safe and stole $25,000 and inspection stickers from it.

Also in Seagate, a man shot at another man while both men were driving their cars on the avenue in broad daylight.

In Red Hook, a man brutally shot another man to death outside a fried chicken restaurant after his victim slashed him with a straight razor during a fight inside there.

Also in Red Hook, a fire took down a one-story warehouse and two pigs came outside to check it out and chew some grass.

Cops arrested a man following a search warrant of his house that caught him in possession of a 3-D printer and a cache of plastic guns and clips ready for ghost gun assembly and distribution trafficking on the streets. They literally look like toys.

Deonte Haynes, 30, was caught Tuesday with two 3D printers and enough parts to make enough seven guns, including an AR-15 rifle, cops announced at a press conference at police headquarters Wednesday.

In DUMBO, a man saw three teenage boys on a corner selling candy claiming it was for charity and intended to donate a dollar but only had larger bills. As he had his cash in hand, one of the street urchins snatched it from his hands and then another one of them snatched his cellphone when he tried to call the cops. Dumbo.

Also in DUMBO, a mentally disturbed homeless man climbed up between two cars on the F train, perilously coming close to falling off.

Manhattan

In Washington Heights, a gang of eight men surrounded an app-food delivery man who just dropped off an order and beat him up and whacked him on the head with a baseball bat and a stick. After the man ran away, the thug with bat bashed his bike with it and kicked it to the ground. It actually appears that the delivery was a set up for the ultraviolence.

Also in Washington Heights, a 12-year-old girl got plowed by a speeding hit-and-run driver in a fancy car while trying to run across the street after seeing if the coast was clear to cross in front of a double parked van some dickhead left in the middle of the street that obscured her view.

Again in Washington Heights, a camper trailer got defaced with graffiti with demands for the family living inside to move their vehicle to make parking for the residents on the block.

And again in Washington Heights at the 168 St. Station, a man randomly slashed a commuter in the face on the mezzanine because he thought he looked at him funny.

And again in Washington Heights, a gang of hard drug slingers got their operation overthrown by the DEA after slanging smack, coke, oxycodone and fentanyl on the streets for three years and didn’t do a good job being discreet about it by posting photos of themselves on social media showing off their guns and money.

And again in Washington Heights at the 190th St. Station, a bigoted man randomly attacked a commuter by grabbing him by the hair and swinging him around by it while punching him multiple times on the A train during the afternoon because he thought he was gay and he didn’t have pepper spray.

In Hell’s Kitchen, a man got caught and arrested for possessing thousands of fentanyl pills and loaded gun and hundreds of bullets after he dropped a stuffed doll containing the drugs on the sidewalk after being pursued in an undercover operation by the DEA for over a year. So this guy was able to get away with selling his deadly product until it was expedient to indict him. During that time, the NYPD seized over two thousand pounds of fentanyl pills and nearly 600 junkies died of overdoses last year which while tragic is still an improvement over the over 2,000 that succumbed to overdosing on fentanyl in 2020 during the first year of the pandemic.

Also in Hell’s Kitchen, an off-duty cop and a friend of his got into an argument which escalated into a brawl with four other men and he wound up getting his beaten down and his gun stolen. His assailants are still on the loose and that gun is ghost now.

Again in Hell’s Kitchen, a woman with an orange crush colored wig carrying a cinderblock on the street weaponized it on a taxi cab and stole 40 bucks and a cellphone from the front seat while the driver went to take a piss. She kinda looks like Crackhead Barney (flag drop!).

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man attempted to access two apartment buildings while on the rooftops and possessing two long knives, making him the New Bad Days version of Zorro or the Scarlett Pimpernel. It should be noted of the precarious set up of patio furniture on the rooftop which has to be a building violation.

https://nypost.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2022/03/hells-kitchen-bandit-comp.jpg?quality=75&strip=all

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man swindled a LLC consortium developer landlord of a luxury residential tower out of over a 1.5 million dollars and the federal and state government of over $149,000 in pandemic financial aid by renting out a condo to moneyed tourists and for music videos and private upscale events through Airbnb.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a homeless man knocked over a 72-year-old tourist who just arrived to the city after she walked past him as he was walking like a zombie on the sidewalk.

In Central Park, an arsonist lit up ten brush and rubbish fires on the hills on the west side that caused a massive smoke condition hovering over the entire area.

And another bunch of brush fires in Central Park happened again a few weeks later.

In Washington Square Park, a man imposed upon another man with two women smoking a blunt and asked for a couple pulls, then the man’s friend went loco and instigated a fight with him and then the stoner got stabbed in the head twice. In the NY Post’s coverage of the incident where they were asking parkgoers how the park has been lately, a man sat down next to one of them and then he attacked the reporter and photographer with a flying karate kick.

In East Harlem, a bigoted man terrorized his neighbors with racial and xenophobic slurs for months by blaming them for bringing coronavirus to America (for that you can blame the White man Tony Fauci).

Also in East Harlem, a man went batshit at a Mickey D’s after workers told him to use a robot cashier kiosk to order food then pulled a knife out at them as they were engaged in a heated dispute. The manager tried to stop the crazed consumer by weaponizing a plastic pole from a mop but wound up getting stabbed multiple times trying to get him out of the restaurant, causing him to lose enough blood to wind up in a temporary coma.

This incident happened a block away from a Burger King restaurant where a psychopath murdered a cashier by shooting her to death after she gave him 100 bucks only 2 months earlier. Which makes being a fast food employee the most dangerous job in the most dangerous town in Manhattan.

Again in East Harlem, two women brawling on a crowded sidewalk in broad daylight led to one of them pulling out a knife and stabbing her foe in the neck, leaving a bloody trail on the pavement and inside a 99 cent store.

And again in East Harlem, a woman shot two teenage boys and another teenage boy got hit with glass from a stray bullet on the grounds of the East River Houses.

And again in East Harlem, a fight involving three teenage boys in the hallway of a high school escalated when one of them pulled out a knife and stabbed two of them.

And again in East Harlem, a woman hit an 86-year-old woman while riding an electric scooter and left her with head trauma, causing her to be hospitalized in critical condition.

In Harlem, a woman committed suicide by jumping off a highway overpass and got hit by a truck driver when she landed on the road.

Also in Harlem, a 64-year-old trying to commute home driving his SUV hit a dirt bike rider in the intersection as the scofflaw ran a red light while going the wrong way, then the man got scared and decided to flee the scene of the accident as the dirtbike/ATV gang that rider was rolling with chased them in pursuit. The gang caught up with the man who hit their reckless buddy and surrounded his car, then pulled him and his son out of his vehicle and five of them proceeded to beat both of them down to the asphalt. The four goons were joined by two other men who continue their lynching and then robbed their wallets and cellphones.

Again in Harlem, a man stalked a woman who was walking to her home and then as she got a block closer he put on surgical gloves and then he knocked her to the pavement with a sucker punch, then he stomped on her head and body causing her to lose consciousness. Then he dragged her between two parked cars and left her for dead on the asphalt after he took her clothes off.

And again in Harlem, the man who spread his shit on a woman like nutella on bread at a train station in the Bronx got collared again after he busted a window with a dumbbell at a storage building and demanded money from a worker there. This time D.A. Bragg put bail on him to keep his recidivist dirty ass incarcerated.

And again in Harlem, a man bashed the bumper and then cut off an off-duty cop commuting to work coming off a bridge from the Bronx. Then the man spit on the cop,  pulled out a gun and shot at his car and bounced. The cop kept his gun holstered and called 911, where cops traced his Jersey plates and found the psycho driver dwelling in Brooklyn and nabbed him with the weapon at an apartment where he stashed it inside a teddy bear in a baby crib.

And again in Harlem, a woman set her apartment on fire by lighting up flammable materials which spread fast to the top floor of the building, leading to four other tenants getting injured from the blaze.

And again in Harlem, a 68-year-old man lost control of his car and hit a woman and her a six-year-old son on the sidewalk. The woman died from her injuries.

And again in Harlem at the 148th St. Station, a man stabbed another man in the torso following a dispute on the 3 train.

And again in Harlem, a homeless man with 60 priors randomly smacked a 6-year-old boy on his head with a laptop on the crosswalk while his mother and him were going to the park.

And again in Harlem, a woman stalked another woman walking home to her apartment building then shot her twice in the leg as she entered the lobby.

In Midtown, a woman was found dead on her bedroom floor inside her apartment in a luxury tower with visible marks of head trauma.

Also in Midtown, a man broke into four stores with a crowbar and smashed their windows and looted merchandise after a recent arrest for other burglaries he committed where he got sprung by a judge who released him because of the watered down severity of his crimes in the state’s bail reform laws. When he got arrested again for this spree and was released again, he burglarized two more small businesses. Way to go Governor Kathy Clown and your two bumbling idiots state senate majority leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and assembly speaker Carl Heastie!

Again in Midtown, a man went nutso at the Museum of Modern Art when a clerk told him his membership was revoked for previous outbursts he had at the MOMA so he had to pay to see a movie and then he jumped over the counter and stabbed her twice and another clerk in the neck. Then he ran out the building after a security guard threw a binder at him to stop him. The kook got detained in Pennsylvania hiding in a motel after he set his room on fire. He also sent a dead rat in a box to his former boss at a Broadway theater after he got fired from his job as an usher a few months earlier.

And again in Midtown, a man slashed another man in the face with a shiv while intervening in a dispute his victim was having with another man on a street corner.

And again in Midtown, a fugitive got caught by Port Authority cops who was wanted for beating up a 2-year-old baby in Massachusetts.

And again in Midtown, a man ambushed a tourist and his wife and her friend coming out of a taxi cab  they were dropped off by a hotel and shot him multiple times thentried to snatch an expensive watch worth six figures off his wrist as he writhed on the pavement, but then the wife’s friend jumped on him and stopped him and the gunman decided to bounce.

And again in Midtown at the Grand Central Station, a man sleeping on the S train got up in a cranky mood when he punched an MTA worker who awakened him to get him off the train.

And again in Midtown, a emotionally disturbed man having a breakdown on the street and screaming at everyone he sees, suddenly randomly sucker punched a 9-year-old girl in the head. Then the man pursued her and her frightened mother on the sidewalk until a doorman intervened and protected them from him, as he continued his uninhibited yelling.

And again in Midtown, a man robbed a bank of 500 bucks after he handed a teller a threatening note.

And again in Midtown at the 42nd St. Station, a commuter got approached by a  man who asked him for some money, then the man snatched his wallet as he was about to give him a buck. Then he went after and got clocked in the face multiple times and the thief got away and used his credit cards to buy clothes and kicks.

And again in Midtown, a homeless man tried to snatch a wallet from a 73-year-old man while he was playing lotto at a bodega, then he attacked him from behind and shoved him onto the pavement on a street corner by the New York Times building, then he stomped on him and punched him while digging through his pockets trying to find something to steal, but found nothing and headed for the subway. Before this savage attack, the perp punched a woman and tried to rob a backpack on 42nd st and was previously let loose for two criminal acts in February for arson and larceny.

And again in Midtown, a homeless man stabbed another man to death during a fight on the sidewalk right before sunrise. The killer then blamed it on an evil twin when police collared him.

And again in Midtown, a man pestering customers for money and loitering at a Mickey D’s grabbed a man from behind as he was making an order from a robot cashier kiosk and threw him up against the wall, punched him and then kicked him while he was on the floor and robbed his cellphone and cash as no one witnessing the savage mugging did anything to stop it. Notably a big guy who watched the brutality and walked around the mugger and proceeded to make his own food order on the robot cashier kiosk. This is exactly why human cashiers are still essential workers.

The skell was currently on parole when he executed this brazen attack for assaulting a woman with a stick and biting off her son’s nose and gleefully eating it in front of them inside a deli in Arverne and for threatening to stab a worker at another McDonalds in Springfield Gardens two years ago. 

And again in Midtown at the Grand Central Station, two homeless men decided to get into a fight on an escalator, compelling one commuter to climb onto the metal median for safety as the men continued to wrestle on the steps.

And again in Midtown, a man randomly punched a 65-year-old woman and then shoved another woman to the pavement on the sidewalk.

And again in Midtown at the 42nd St. Station, three men were having a fentanyl picnic on the platform by the F train tracks.

And again in Midtown, a high end restaurant shanty designed like a mansion in the Hamptons covered entirely with synthetic grass and protected with velvety curtains went on fire and destroyed a third of the ostentatious and tacky structure.

In the East Village, a gang of boys have been terrorizing a bodega for 6 months, assaulting the  manager and his employees and knocking over merchandise and assaulting them with sticks, umbrellas and their little fists with total impunity and having their 911 calls wholly undermined as cops only made reports for less than half of the incidents. Along with the meteoric rise in crime in the district during that time, the owners of this small business had to spend $7,000 to install a buzzer system entrance mechanism to keep the little sociopaths away from them as they tried to force their way into the store in the most recent criminal mischief incident against them.

After two months of starfucking with the city’s wealthiest people which included having dinner with disgraced former Governor Cuomo and the abominable former mayor Bill de Blasio (who ignored this bodega’s plight during his own starfucking and dereliction of duty to his constituency) Mayor Eric Adams stopped by there and told them how “heartbroken” he was about the torment they went through and promised to finally dispense justice and have the little bullies held to account. Only one of the latch key kids, a 15-year-old boy, got arrested for his part in the year-long torment of this small business.

Also in the East Village, a gang of men broke into a Ukranian non-profit organization’s office building and stole 800 bullet proof vests meant to aid President Zulensky to defend against Vladimir Putin’s invasion of their homeland. The war-time charity vests were left in the hallway that could be seen from curious passerby from outside of the building, which the thieves easily stole and loaded into their vans as passerby didn’t weren’t even aroused by any suspicion of a bunch of men hauling out boxes while wearing masks (thank you for continuing the pandemic protocols Mayor Adams). This either was utter carelessness or an inside job.

Again in the East Village, two gypsies swindled a woman out of over 150 grand with a scheme to exorcize a jezebel spirit from her lady parts and a promise to make her ex boyfriend fall back in love with her.

And again in the East Village, a man slashed a 17-year-old boy in the neck and called him a racial slur after having a casual conversation with him while he was hanging out with a group of young women who was familiar with the victim on social media.

And again in the East Village, an emotionally disturbed man laid down and screamed in the middle of Broadway.

In the Lower East Side, a man got shot in the chest after engaging in an heated argument on the street with another driver and drove himself to Bellevue to get treated.

In Times Square, a man vandalized a theater house by drawing swastikas on the door.

Also in Times Square, a man waved a Ukranian Neo-Nazi flag while cruising down the avenue during a vehicle procession for the embattled nation.

In Columbus Circle, two gangs of teenage boys arguing with each other escalated into a rumble on the subway platform. A few of them pulled out a knife and a machete to settle the dispute.

Also why no one takes the subway…

In Union Square, a man slashed a 68-year-old woman on her shoulder from behind as she was walking down the stairs into the train station.

In the Upper East Side, a man crashed his car while driving drunk and speeding on the FDR drive and wound up killing his girlfriend and her sister riding along with him after the vehicle exploded and he couldn’t get them out.

Also in the Upper East Side, a man spray painted bigoted shit on a row parked cars on the streets before sunrise.

Again in the Upper East Side and also in East Harlem and Chelsea, Greenwich Village, Tribeca and Brownsville, a gang of teenage boys pulled off smash and grab heists of chain pharmacies stealing bottles of oxycodone and codeine to resell on the streets.

And again in the Upper East Side, two homeless men got caught shoplifting beer, oatmeal and sausages from a chain pharmacy. One of the petty thieves told a reporter straight up he steals for a living, mostly beer and junk food, because he has no money to his name but he keeps going back to court because his recidivism doesn’t carry enough severity to qualify for bail induced incarceration. Which in this truly pathetic case, is actually correct.

And again in the Upper East Side at the 96th St. Station, a man ambushed a commuter coming off the 6 train and robbed his wallet at knifepoint.

And again in the Upper East Side, two men yelled a bigoted gay slur at man jogging by them and threw white liquid on him.

In the Upper West Side, a man randomly attacked a 90-year-old woman on the sidewalk, punching her on the back of the head as she was browsing a restaurant menu standing on a podium that was in front of a restaurant shanty by a bike lane.

Also in the Upper West Side, a man hit another man with a hammer in the middle of the street in broad daylight.

In Penn Station, a man ripped off a phone from a commuter’s hand on the E train and ran, but wound up getting arrested when his mark called that phone and arranged to pay him money to get it back and was accompanied by cops when he met him at the West 4th St. Station in Greenwich Village. The crook was also caught with baggies of crack.

In the West Village at the 14th St. Station, a transgender woman attacked a commuter and whacked him on the head with a hammer after the victim tried to avoid an altercation that his assailant was having with two other commuters and accidentally bumped into her. The victim observed how the city is still being negligent about subway violence even though Adams announced that he was beefing up police in the transit system only a few weeks earlier.

Also in the West Village, an argument between a man and an worker at a goodwill store escalated when the man took out a gun and pressed it up against his head.

Again in the West Village at the 14th St. Station, a man beat the shit out of a young woman in a corridor between the L and 1-2-3 lines.

In Greenwich Village, two men trapped a woman walking on the sidewalk late in the evening and shoved her into a store’s rolling gate and roughed her up then robbed her purse containing her laptop, cellphone and tablet and bounced.

Also in Greenwich Village at the West 4th St. Station, a man whipped out a knife and reached out trying to slash three men on a staircase after they bumped into him while they were passing him.

Again Greenwich Village at the West 4th St. Station, a man got into a spat with a token booth clerk and punched him in the face.

And again in Greenwich Village at the West 4th St. Station, the MTA suddenly decided to finally clean up the entire station and remove the homeless people from the platforms and mezzanine just so two City Council members can do a photo op and sideshow showing their concern about crime and lack of transit ridership. The floor was still wet when they held a discussion with NYPD and other bureaucrats.

And again in Greenwich Village, a man riding a bike jumped a woman jogging by him on the bike path by the Hudson River and pushed her down to the asphalt and forced her to suck his dick, then the deviant rode away.

In Chelsea, a man shot a man who used to go out with his girlfriend and shot his friend to death in cold blood on a street corner in front of the Fulton Houses. The killer held his ex at gunpoint in front of her baby and stole her cellphone last month but didn’t get to serve time for that incident because D.A. Bragg never responded to a NYPD detectives request for a warrant of the man’s gun, which he would eventually weaponize to settle a score with her ex that wound up with another collateral murder from NYC’s meteoric rise of gun violence.

Also in Chelsea, a hotheaded young wealthy woman shoved an 87-year-old woman onto to pavement when she was hurriedly walking by her on the sidewalk in a pissed off mood, causing her to land on her head and die from her injury a week later.

The hot headed trust fund baby easily paid the 500 large bail with a check signed by her mommy. Maybe she’ll eventually wind up in a reality show on the Bravo network.

Again in Chelsea, a quirky jewelry store got jacked in broad daylight.

In Inwood, a man stepped out of a cruiser and walked over to a parked car where a guy was selling weed and shot him six times hitting him in the groin and on the leg.

Also in Inwood, a man held up a fried chicken joint at gunpoint and snatched a chain off the neck of a customer, then hopped on motorcycle ridden by his accomplice and they fled on the sidewalk.

In Hamilton Heights at the 145th St. Station, a gang of four men surrounded a 15-year-old boy on the platform and stabbed him in the leg during a beatdown.

In Fort George, two men ambushed another man and stuck him up at gunpoint on the stairwell in his apartment building, then went to his apartment and tied him up and stole his jewels and $100,000 and took the fire escape out.

In Soho, a man looted over two grand worth of merchandise  from a high end winter clothing designer store and got caught trying to get away in an SUV by the cops who cornered him and caused him to crash into a parked jeep, then collared him when he tried to run for it.

Also in Soho, two men involved in snatch and grab lootings of high end designer stores in the city engaged in a high speed chase with cops who recognized their vehicle from their recent plunder and pursued them on the Manhattan Bridge as the driver was speeding on the wrong side trying to get away.

Again in Soho, a man woke up two homeless men while they were sleeping on the sidewalk and shot both of them, one he wounded by blasting him in the arm and killing the other with a shot to the head. The psycho also killed three homeless men in Washington D.C. days before he came to NYC to continue his murder spree with ease. Interesting how he decided to continue his murder pattern in the clockwork apple instead of nearby Baltimore, where crime and homelessness are also abundant. Ironically, the serial killer is also homeless.

In Tribeca, a homeless man was found dead on the street lying by a luxury apartment building following the two shootings of other homeless men turned out to have died from a drug overdose.

In Kips Bay, a riot broke out in front of an event space that was holding a clothing sale collaboration involving two high end designer brands, as men brawled with each other for a place on line as one security guard helplessly stood by, being it was her only defense.

In Hamilton Heights, a homeless man attacked a NY Post reporter and a photographer with a tree branch after cops and parks workers arrived to remove him from a tree where he built a nest for himself to dwell for a number of months but was noticed when the season changed and the leaves all fell. Now that’s a creative way to upzone actual “affordable housing”.

In Herald Square at the 34th St. Station, a man committed suicide by jumping in front of the arriving N train.

In NoMad, a man sneaked into a gift shop at the Museum of Sex and stole some t-shirt mersh worth 60 bucks.

On the Williamsburg Bridge, a man randomly slashed a commuter in the face with a razor for no reason when he walked by him on the J train (or because his mark was an Asian man). The victim followed the lunatic when he got off the Essex St. Station and pointed him to cops who were standing on the platform where they arrested him.

In Madison Square Garden, Governor Kathy “Clown” Hochul got incessantly booed by Ranger fans while she walked out and dropped a hockey puck right before the game started.

In Downtown Manhattan at the Chambers St. Station, a woman slashed a man on the hand and his armpit to settle an argument on the E train.

Also in Downtown Manhattan, a man got pulled over by cops for having bogus license plates and then got rowdy when they tried to collar him for not cooperating and managed to fight off three cops and got away when he pushed off one of them causing his head to hit the bumper and get knocked out. Then the skell got in his car and drove away as the other two cops watched, being that it was their only defense.

Again in Downtown Manhattan, a NYC transit worker got collared by the NYPD for misusing a city placard belonging to an EMT to park illegally. What’s really fucked about this is that Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso was also illegally using his expired city council placard to park his car wherever he wanted even though he was supposed to give it up and did this while preaching and admonishing to his citizens to stop driving their cars so much. Lock him up.

And again in Downtown Manhattan, a man being processed for a court hearing for breaking a window at a hospital in the Upper East Side had to be fitted with a mesh bag over his head for spitting on cops who were handling him at the Criminal Court House building.

In Fidi at the Bowling Green Station, a man furiously slapped a woman on the escalator and stole her cellphone.

And again in Fidi at the Wall St. Station, a man yelled at an off-duty cop and his wife on the 2 train and then spat on both of them and when the couple chased after him when he tried to bounce, the derelict slashed the cop on the arm.

In Turtle Bay, a man driven crazy by pandemic restrictions yelled at a woman and her 5-year-old daughter for wearing masks and also ripped down signs mandating mask wearing in the apartment building where he lives in and the LLC landlord is trying to get him evicted. The dude is actually right, but yelling at your neighbor who has been manipulated by mendacious public health experts is not acceptable too.

In Tudor City, a man shot another man on the street late in the evening.

In the Flatiron District, three men went into a women’s spa store and did a smash and grab robbery stealing over $3,000 worth of perfumes, brushes and other self-care products.

In Murray Hill, a man got caught shoplifting a bunch of bottles of artificial flavored sports drinks at a chain pharmacy store by a security guard and then he jabbed him with a syringe and got away.

In Little Italy, a man shot another man in the neck at an Italian restaurant. Bottle of red…

In Gramercy Park, a woman came home to her apartment she shares with a roommate and found a man rifling through their belongings in her bedroom. The man bounced with the quickness out of the building after he got caught and chased by her.

In Penn Station at the 34th St. Station, a man whacked a machete over the head of another man on the stairs by the 1 train platform.

Also in Penn Station, a man randomly punched a 69-year-old man on

In Chinatown, a man clobbered a crossing guard with a glass bottle for no reason. The same guy randomly hit a 2-year-old boy sitting in a stroller with a suitcase last Spring.

Also in Chinatown, hundreds of women formed a line for free pepper spray.

In South Street Seaport, a woman was found dead floating in the East River.

In Manhattanville, a cobra got loose and slithered on the street in broad daylight.

In Hudson Square, a man doing donuts on the street with his souped up car ran over another man who slipped on the asphalt trying to capture video on his cellphone of the reckless stunt after two other men ran out to the middle to film it for social media platforms. The driver took off after leaving the man in critical condition with multiple fractures on his skull and arms. He eventually surrendered to the authorities and a judge set bail for him at $10,000 following his arraignment. 

Queens

 

In Bayside, a gang of three young men shot a fusillade of bullets at other men sitting in a car over a parking space nearby a house where a party being held at a foreclosed house was going on, which was being run by men who were squatting in the home and  using it on airbnb to rent to strangers and to promote wild parties for the last 2 years. After making money from them during that time, the criminal enterprise platform decided to terminate the squatters account.

Also in Bayside, a restaurant caught fire after a ebike battery exploded while it was being charged overnight.

In Elmhurst, two men jumped a 68-year-old woman from behind and robbed her purse and also stabbed her while she put a struggle to keep her property from being stolen. As the two thugs tried to flee, a pizzeria owner and his son witnessing the broad daylight mugging intervened and tried to stop them and the two thugs stabbed both of them multiple times during the tussle. The Samaritans heroic deeds paid off as cops caught the psychos later in the day and also found them possessing 39 bags of heroin.

After their arrests it was discovered that these two lowlifes also mercilessly beat the shit out of a man in Elmhurst and robbed a purse off a 75-year-old woman who was coming out of her apartment building in Jackson Heights and were released on their own recognizance following the arrests of both criminal acts. Both men expressed disappointment and disgust at Mayor Adams for continuing de Blasio’s insouciance and and incompetence towards the rising crime on the streets that led them to prevent a felony broad daylight robbery and take on two shameless recidivist lowlife criminals by themselves and also called for the shittiest D.A. in NYC history Alvin Bragg to resign (even though Melinda Katz is the DA of Queens).

In Far Rockaway, a man shot another man to death point blank to his head while he was walking with him in an alley. The victim’s mother railed against Mayor Adams for not getting stuff done about the rise in gun violence and crime that took her son’s life.

In Far Rockaway, a wheelchair bound 73-year-old man trying to cross the avenue to go to the store got run over and killed by an unlicensed truck driver who dragged him and his wheelchair for an entire block, scraping his body on the asphalt like a bag of trash. The elderly disabled man had difficulty commuting and lost his life because of all the construction of new tower overdevelopment going down in the area.

Also in Far Rockaway, an off-duty crossing guard pulled a fake pistol on her landlord who told her she can’t have a dog on his property.

In Arverne “By The Sea” at the 67th St. Station, a man took out a pick axe and swung it around like a medieval knight at commuters on the A train.

In Long Island City, at the Court Square Station, a boy and a girl attacked a woman on the platform and tried to steal her phone and then slashed a Samaritan on his hand when he tried to stop them. The kids wore face masks in accordance with the pandemic mandate protocols that still remain while riding mass transit.

Also in Long Island City, two war veterans having a dispute escalated when one of them got his ear bitten off as they brawled with each other inside a homeless shelter.

Again in Long Island City, a fire destroyed an entire apartment and blew out windows on two floors in a building at the Queensbridge Houses and left 5 people injured an a family of three homeless.

And again in Long Island City at the Queens Plaza Station, a man stuck up a woman with a knife as she was walking down the stairs and robbed 200 bucks off her. The same stairs where a homeless man hammered a Dept of Health municipal worker in February.

And again in Long Island City and again at the Queens Plaza Station, a gang of four teenagers beat down two men who were sleeping on the benches on the 7 train and robbed a wallet, cellphone and shades off them.

And again in Long Island City, an argument between two municipal park workers on the street escalated when one of them punched the other in the face and then took out a knife and stabbed him multiple times.

And again in Long Island City, a taxi driver drove his cab on the two way bike lane now protected by a concrete bollard and came face to face with a bike rider and then mounted the sidewalk and drove off. The stupid cyclist should have done that being that the risk to a pedestrian from a car is greater than that of a bike as the bike zealots, bike lobbies and bike fanzines remind us all the time.

And again in Long Island City, a man smacked a woman in the neck with a foreign object as she was jogging past him on the pedestrian path of a bridge.

In Jamaica, cops pulled over a man in an SUV that was reported stolen and then the thief hit the gas and plowed into one of them after they walked over to the vehicle, compelling one of the cops to shoot at him as he got away.

Also in Jamaica, a kook made a bomb threat to York College which led to all classes being cancelled, including the night classes.

Again in Jamaica, a man vandalized a church by smashing its windows with a 2×4 a few blocks away from where he lives.

And again in Jamaica, three men with guns chased a man and tried to shoot him down on the street in broad daylight, but only managing to hit him once on the shoulder.

And again in Jamaica, a man bludgeoned a worker over the head with a metal rod inside a pawn shop. Cops initially thought he was shot because of how deep his head wounds were.

In Flushing, a man randomly yelled at a woman and her 3-year-old granddaughter sitting in a stroller and then he punched the toddler and flipped it over causing her to fall onto the pavement, leaving her with multiple bruises as the woman was taking out garbage.

Also in Flushing, a woman brutally stabbed a man to death with two knives inside his office because he didn’t want to take her citizenship case for asylum claim about being raped by a cop in China. The man was a freedom fighter who took on the Chinese Government during the Tienneman Square protests.

Again in Flushing, a five-alarm fire engulfed and collapsed a commercial building that was home to dozen of merchants, causing injuries to five firefighters. Queens continues to burn. Maybe a phoenix in the form of a luxury public housing tower will rise from the ashes. The fire was so severe the amount of water used to put it out flooded the Main St. Station and left it shut down for hours. Queens is burning…

It should be abjectly noted that the FDNY and EMTs have had trouble responding to fires because the modernized tech of the department’s dispatch system the city spent $22,000,000 on is working like shit.

And again in Flushing, two pimps kidnapped two teenage girls and placed them in a hotel room and kept all the money exploiting them as hookers for months. This is straight out of Taxi Driver and there are a lot pedophile sex fiends in this district.

And again in Flushing, a woman was found dead inside a nite club.

Then the rowdy bunch responded with one of them picking up a velvet rope stand and smashing the window and another man taking out a gun and shooting inside, hitting two off-duty C.O.’s who were partying and allegedly had nothing to do with the rowdy bunch. The gunman is still on the loose.

40 hours later in South Richmond Hill, two men engaging in a dispute over money escalated when one of them pulled out a chain and the other man pulled out a sharpened meat cleaver to settle their dispute. Cops arrived and pulled their guns out forcing the guy to drop his weaponized butcher’s tool and collared him.

Again in South Richmond Hill, a 5-alarm fire engulfed and destroyed a plumbing and electrical parts supply store as the FDNY had major difficulties putting out the inferno because of lack of water pressure coming the pumps and the hydrants.

Again in Jackson Heights, two homeless men brawling on the sidewalk came to a head when one of them snatched a knife from a halah food cart and slashed his foe in the face. Messy messy messy.

In Queens Village, a man raped a woman at knifepoint inside his basement apartment after tricking her with a ruse he put on his social media account using a fake name and saying that he was looking to hire a cleaning lady, then he grabbed her phone and deleted all correspondence she had with him about the job. He pulled the same stunt when he lived in South Jamaica last summer and posted $30,000 bail following his arraignment for that rape as well. This is like if George Costanza was a serial rapist.

Also in Queens Village, two teenage boys engaged in a shootout on the boulevard  after the final school bell rang. One of them got hit in the arm.

In Springfield Gardens, an off-duty CEO sneaked into his girlfriend’s house late at night and beat her dog to a pulp while she wasn’t home. The dog died later from his injuries.

On Rikers Island, a C.O. got slashed in the face right under his eye trying to break up a fight between two inmates.

Also on Rikers Island, two inmates died although reports of the causes for their demises were not revealed. The new D.O.C. commish literally runs a tight ship with a proclivity for secrecy that rivals Mayor Adams. No wonder the swaggering mayor loves the guy.

Again on Rikers Island, a young inmate got beaten down and stabbed multiple times all over his body during a lynching by a gang of other inmates in a prison cell he got transferred to.

A week later it was revealed that the second inmate that died while incarcerated choked on orange peels he swallowed and other inmates tried to save him as C.O.s weren’t available to render aid and a C.O. in a booth did not respond to the emergency. Very oddly unique way to perish while in perpetual custody.

On the Grand Central Parkway, a gang of wheelie popping dirt bike and ATV riders took over the road, exposing not only Mayor de Blasio’s failure to crush their illegal vehicles but Mayor Adams total insouciance in enabling these hazardous critical mass rides to continue.

At JFK Airport, a man stole a car leading to a chase with Port Authority cops in pursuit and his eventual arrest.

In Morrisania, a young man driving an SUV ran through numerous red lights while speeding. When two unmarked NYPD patrol cars trapped him, he hit the gas and tried to run over the cops that were approaching his vehicle in an attempt to escape, compelling one of them to shoot at the vehicle.

After furious condemnation by activists and fauxgressive elected officials, Mayor Adams had to defend the cops actions by noting that the man weaponized his vehicle with intent to harm them.

The goons tried to kidnap the child but failed when she resisted but still made off with her purse, her cellphone and also took the kids car seat and then stole her SUV she used for working for an app-hail service. They abandoned the vehicle not that far away from where they committed their felonious deed. Only one of them has been arrested.

Mayor Adams used the crime scene to illustrate his decision to revive an anti-gun unit de Blasio and former Commissioner Shea abolished two years ago which has attributed to meteoric rise in gun violence in this city.

Again in Mott Haven, a man got collared by cops for carrying a 45 caliber gun at a restaurant and then got a lenient charge by a judge to wear an ankle bracelet during his arraignment instead of setting a six figure bail regarding his past weapons possession charge and he exploited that leniency by blowing off showing up to get fitted for it.

Then they contacted his brother on another social media platform and demanded 100 grand in ransom money to spare his life. Cops were able to catch one of the fiends in Queens where he was sitting in the van with the victim bound and gagged and wrapped in a furniture mover blanket. The woman also got arrested for her involvement in the conspiracy with the three men, who all saw an opportunity in a big cash haul because their mark was flashing money during his exchanges with the indicted honeypot.

Red Light Camera Obscura

South Richmond Hill, Queens, New York.

As we all know from the past decade since it was implemented, the Vision Zero program to bring down traffic accidents and fatalities initiated by the abominable Mayor Bill de Blasio failed in its mission to do just that as more people got maimed and killed since it’s implementation as the years went on and exacerbated to new extreme numbers during the last two years of the pandemic. Well, look no further on why Vision Zero as well as enforcement and punitive charges traffic violations continue to fail New Yorkers with the condition of this red light traffic camera post; which has been violated with those obnoxiously ubiquitous Cash for Cars advertisements that are always illegally posted on traffic and electric utility poles all over the five boroughs.

 

It’s a pretty safe presumption that this thing is not operative and hasn’t been for quite some time since it’s actually facing the wrong way towards a mixed use apartment building and not at the busy free-for-all intersection of Lefferts Blvd. and Liberty Ave. where it should be, where it would easily track every red light running double parking vehicle clogging up this vicinity on a daily basis…

 

Which the NYPD has also engaged and indulged in…

 

The re-affixing of this red light camera is clearly a worse offense than the annoying ads, for not only that it has made a perpetual daily car derby on Liberty more perilous, but it shows how extreme civil disobedience can be when the government and bureaucracy push people too far. It was not long ago when a gunslinger on a bicycle emptied his clip and shot up a red light camera in Woodhaven by Atlantic Ave. not long ago too. So traffic anarchy will continue in Little Guyana until the Department of Transportation stops worrying about a fringe minority of bike actorvists whining about childproofing bike lanes and actually gets serious about Vision Zero and restores vision to this zombie camera.

Update:

I was just informed by my comrade Queens Crapper that this traffic calming infrastructure device is actually a decoy. For there was another one that was plowed in Greenpoint by busy traffic arteries intersecting McGuinness Blvd and Meeker Ave. that was covered on the Crap blog nearly a decade ago.

Commenters on that post mentioned how the Department of Transportation decided to place these in the hopes that the dummy camera would reduce drivers temptation to beat the steady reds but were easy figured out, which is probably why the city didn’t even bother to maintain them. It’s a safe bet that camera is still standing in Greenpoint just as this Lefferts/Liberty decoy is still standing here today. Although it looks like some civil disobedient vanals in Little Guyana was unaware of the DOT’s ruse and had it reformatted like this to be on the “safe” side.

Anyway, it’s clear that with this little scheme the D.O.T has been running to trick reckless drivers that they are the dummies they always have been and still are. And now these useless inanimate sentinels are just more ugly street furniture to remain in perpetuity.

 

Avarice By The Sea

Ain’t that America, home of the free: Little white houses for LLCs

Arverne, Rockaway Beach, Queens, New York

Queens Eagle

A group of more than a dozen Arverne by the Sea homeowners are under investigation for  illegally renting out their homes while collecting approximately $1 million in tax exemptions, the Department of Investigation said this week.

A Department of Investigation report, issued Feb. 8, includes 11 recommendations to expand city oversight and prevent violations following the investigation into a 2018 complaint.

The DOI found that there were 15 homeowners in violation of the primary residence requirement; eight used the properties as rentals or investment properties — one as a hotel that was registered with the city to collect occupancy tax — and four who each owned one property and used them as rentals instead of living there.

There were 11 homeowners with multiple Arverne by the Sea deeds.

According to the DOI, they “were in violation of primary residence requirements by illegally renting their properties while being unjustly enriched by tax exemptions meant for owner-occupied homes.”

The apartments were designated in the early 2000’s as an Housing Preservation and Development Urban Development Action Area Project with a 20-year property tax exemption to homeowners requiring they maintain the homes as their primary residences.

You wouldn’t think if you looked at them on first impression, but these beautiful beach front houses are actually government sanctioned public housing…

These Arverne homes are actually impeccably designed, a bulk of them even have patios on the top floors which resemble something like penthouse condos like on Miami and Venice Beaches  with gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean and somewhat pleasant views of Jamaica Bay and the poorer parts of Rockaway Beach, where there at least three public housing projects in the same neighborhood.

You don’t have to be much of a detective to figure out why these 15 motherfuckers ook advantage of a government housing program and made millions off it while getting tax breaks and write-offs for nearly a decade. It doesn’t take much sleuthing to figure out why these homes were easily poached for illegal renting and airbnb lodging and why some nefarious scumbags would conspire tto take advantage of this government housing program and try to make massive profits from it.All it took was a casual bike ride around this sunny oasis of pirated housing equity, it’s gets real plain to see why some nefarious scumbags would try to take advantage of this government housing program and try to make massive profits from it. Bookending this HUD financed utopian village are two massive vacant lots, one of which is still a landfill.

And they are slathered with massive ads promoting luxury lifestyle and real estate offers…..for one luxury apartment building. Which is very odd.

 

This building “The Tides” is the only actual luxury building which for all intents and purposes and ironically doesn’t even stand out. It actually looks more like a government funded building than the HUD houses by the boardwalk, kinda like a Mitchell Lama building. But it’s definitely lux, even the hip cafe, fancy eatery and wine shop are right there in the building too as advertised.

 

And it’s not just “The Tides” lux building that’s rich around here, the whole vicinity looks like nothing else on Queens only peninsula (well, besides Rikers Island) Just across the street is a row of other high end eateries and big bank branches and hovering right over them and Beach Channel Drive is a massive sign of the name of this area “Arverne By The Sea” as if to mimic the legendary Hollywood sign on the hills over Los Angeles.

The thing about the HUD houses is that even though they are nice, they were built too nice.  Which belies the motive to seize all these homes for these greedy predators to grossly monetize from. Plus it wasn’t hard to accomplish, because ever since the peninsula and the boardwalk were renovated and revitalized after Hurricane Sandy, Rockaway Beach has surprisingly become a worldwide tourist attraction and an bigger attraction for high end real estate development and a hotspot for Airbnb opportunists like the guilty parties not named on this motley list of LLC homeowners. 

A lot of this has interest has been established in Arverne, which also had the benefit of getting the most shore infrastructure improvements which includes a surfer culture scene that has grown immensely in the last half decade that has attracted visitors from all over the world (despite the pathetic  waves in this area that usually leave these wave riding novices and posers waddling on the Atlantic like ducks in a lake for hours).

Which brings us back to the surfer demographic, because it was quite strategic for this surf shop Breakwater Surf Co. (company?) to set up their surfboard rental right under the giant advert sign for the luxury Tides condo building. Coincidentally, the shop Breakwater Surf’s founder started his company in the wave capital and summer hot spot in the nation in Rhode Island(!!)and was courted by the developer mentioned in the DOI’s report Benjamin Beechwood to set up shop at Arverne to bring a surf scene to new neighborhood. It arouses a bit of suspicion that there’s some sort of vertical integration with the marketing for not only the Tides (which advertises three businesses that take up space on the landfill walls) but with the illegal rentals as well. 

And all this nefarious malfeasance by this consortium of affordable housing snatchers and the creeping gentrification and overdevelopment on the beach would not be possible without the complicity of the criminal negligence and insouciance of the feckless officials of the Housing, Development and Preservation Department under the crooked mayor and his deputy mayor co-conspirators, which for all intents and purposes according to the DOI study deliberately didn’t set up a regulatory system to monitor the criminal conspiracy at the Arverne By The Sea complex for almost an entire decade.

But one thing that’s common knowledge especially after de Blasio’s HPD’s notorious affordable housing program, is that the city’s housing policies are always geared and prioritized for the nomadic rich and mostly for the rich that doesn’t exist in NYC. And despite the charges and calls for reform of the HPD (instead of firing everyone and subpoenaing every involved in this housing scandal including de Blasio and deputy mayor’s and HPD commissioners Alicia Glen and Vicki Been) the damage from nearly a decade of ripping off HUD tax dollars has paid dividends for the real estate developers as standard luxury tower and luxury public tower development progressed even further during the Arverne illegal rental heists (despite the ominous land erosion on Rockaway’s shores). Even the community civics are getting more alarmed by the tower pestilence infecting the landscape of the mostly middle class streets of Rockaway Beach And Rockaway Park.

Although HPD’s apparent deliberate negligence enabling millions of tax payer dollars get pissed away for profits leading to the rise of real estate values by weaponizing a federal housing program for profits is even more capricious considering that this was happening literally in the district’s Congress member in the U.S. Capitol Rep. Gregory Meeks, whose office is right in the heart and under the vast sign of Arverne by the Sea. It’s a wonder how Meeks could not have seen this scandal happening right under his nose until you think about his own personal troubles with real estate investments with an indicted developer donor and the fact that he was living as a squatter in a luxury home not long ago.

      

It doesn’t say in the DOI report if any of these profiteering plunderers of government housing will ever face charges. It’s not even known if anyone from HPD got a piece of the action got rich with them for keeping quiet as the tax free cash rolled in and piled up for these makeshift realtors and landlords (Hell the HPD even gave them fucking money themselves!). It’s also quite surprising that The Tides developers and realtor is not tied to this scheme giving the convenient proximity of their location. Because real estate is all about location location location.

Mostly it was the speculation/fabrication of the real estate market that inspired these criminal actions. During the time these urban housing poachers were making their millions and dodging property taxes, more lux development immediately followed in nearby areas like the Playland and Rockaway Park districts and Edgemere, along with a big boost by former Mayor’s Bill de Blasio’s mandatory inclusionary housing ruse that enables developers to build higher and denser with the flimsy provision to include incremental housing for lower income residents while also hoarding more cash from the city and state’s philanthropic 421a tax break. And just like in Brooklyn by the bridges where the majority of the city’s most luxurious public housing towers have been erected, this consortium of opportunist government welfare realtors in Arverne easily took advantage of frivolous spending transient suckers looking to pay high to dwell or vacation in a town with cache’s and cultural scenes, being dutiful proxies in making the housing and rental market even more enriching for the Gentrification Industrial Complex of real estate and government.

The NYC Open Restaurants Clustershanty Of Koreatown

Midtown, Manhattan, New York.

It wasn’t much long ago when yours truly did a expansive on the street eyewitness story about the much ballyhooed NYC Open Restaurants program (albeit ballyhooed by our feckless and bought elected officials in NYC Council, former mayor Bill de Blasio and current Mayor Eric Adams) and what an actual clusterfuck it was and making a case out it shouldn’t exist anymore. Now thanks to a judge’s recent decision to order the city to make a thorough environmental review of the restaurant shanties all over the five boroughs, it has thankfully put a pounding kibosh on the City Council Cronies plan to make these unsafe, blighted, filthy, ugly and traffic congesting eyesores a permanent part of the street infrastructure which the restaurants have been using for free for the last two years.

But before the Council Cronies begin their study, I would like to present exhibit A on why every public space these restaurants has usurped must cease to exist and that’s the massive triple cluster shanty on the southwest corner of 32nd St. and 5th Ave, just two blocks away from the Empire State Building.

This is truly the tipping point of public space misuse and the heinous blight that has befouled the streets in the last year, which continues unencumbered because of the willful obliviousness of elected officials and the persistent bickering demands of the hospitality industrial complex lobby, represented by some neoliberal runt named Andrew Rigie.

Behold.

All these shanties contain an abundance of potted ferns that looked like they haven’t been watered in months. These pics here are actually from December. Who knows what kind of bacteria are hording in these zombie plants

Now it’s springtime 2022 and look and the only thing that’s bloomed inside is refuse.

Judging by the broken plexiglass on all three of these shanties, it looks like some of the city’s 5,000 street homeless decided to use them as shelters. And why the hell not? Because these neglected shanties exactly resembled the city’s equally notorious cluster site building shelters by it’s aesthetics and atmosphere.

Clearly the yellow gates did not deter vagrants from trying to get warmth from the brutal cold winter the city just had.

 

(Can’t help thinking about how most of this broken plexiglass might have been retrofitted and weaponized as shivs with all the slashings and stabbings going on in the last 5 months.)

What’s interesting about this cluster shanty site is that it’s not even next to a restaurant, which actually goes against the rules to build one on the city streets according to the flaccid set of rules for them set by city council and the Department of Transportation, but it’s actually next to an empty commercial building lot that happens to be occupied with a bunch of other tables and similar plants and ferns inside there. And the lot is also grossly unkempt and blighted.

 

 

 

 

Apparently, this open restaurants ground zero disaster area was once a foodie event space run by a startup called “cookspace”, which from the optics here has turned out to be another tech company that went belly up during the pandemic.

Even though it is amazingly clear that they were able to salvage their business project and also had the opportunity to add more seating on the dirty street curb thanks to the state and city’s concentrated efforts to save the restaurant industry only. (Illustrated by the enthusiasm by Koreatown’s district council crony rep Keith Powers)

Their website for Maiden Korea has clearly not been updated to reflect the reality of the zombie cluster site they left behind.

It’s amazing how fast this business venture died so fast after building this “oasis” less than a year ago.

https://maidenkorea.com/images/mk9.jpg

MaidenKorea fair use

So what the fuck happened to MaidenKorea? You know what, who cares? What’s important is that their investors bailed out of this venture that was created under the rubric of “saving small businesses” just like the city council cronies and hospitality lobby’s picayune embellished claims that these eyesore shanties saved small businesses also and the cretins behind this effort left town this cluster shanty site to rot and who knows when it’s ever going to be razed, since City Council’s brainless legislating has made the city’s street curb spaces a free-for-all land grab and left it the purview of them solely to the Department of Transportation instead of making the regulating of these shanties with the Department of Buildings (and also the Department of Health being that they are standing atop of asphalt with vehicles and their emissions passing by).

Since MaidenKorea is not around anymore to take responsibility for the mess they left behind, maybe the person or LLC that owns the lot might want to be notified, cited and punitively fined for leaving the property and the shanties in such horrid and hazardous conditions but forgettaboutit. The only record of an owner here is non-existent according to the D.O.B..

Which begs the question…does the city own this lot? And does Council Member Keith Powers know something about this and the tech foodie startup that built this grotesque oasis they abandoned? Does cookspace even exist?

This is exactly why every one of these shanties have to fucking go down, especially this cluster shanty site in Koreatown that isn’t even accounted for. And if this shit continues to clog up and foul this corner eventually it will be considered a superfund site.

Besides the justification to keep them is over. Mayor Adams got rid of de Blasio’s stupid ass key to NYC vaccine passport and everyone can eat indoors again because COVID is fucking endemic. If all these high end restaurants want to have extra seating, they can open another restaurant in an empty commercial space and stop usurping much needed parking spaces for people and ample room for the FDNY, NYPD and EMTs to get to their emergencies unobstructed. The streets aren’t free and the taxpayers shouldn’t subsidize them anymore.

I rest my case.

 

 

Breaking New Bad Days Live!: Big Trouble In Little Guyana

 

South Richmond Hill, Queens, New York

So this happened on a Sunday in broad daylight on the first day of Spring in New York Fucking City under Mayor Eric Adams. Two men causing a ruckus on a street corner at Lefferts Blvd. and Liberty Ave yelling at each other about a money dispute that nearly got even more violent and bloody when one man pulled out what looked like a 24 inch bike chain and the other man retaliated by whipping out a very polished and sharpened meat cleaver in an attempt to defeat his foe and stain it and the pavement with his blood.

(Fucking you tube)

 

Since everyone in the vicinity of the ruckus was just standing around gawking, I ceased filming and called 911 and the NYPD responded mighty quick. The two cops then drew their guns and the perp complied fast and dropped his weaponized food preparation utensil. After the man continued to argue with the cops still pointing their barrels on him, he turned around and they slapped the cuffs on him.

As the cops had the situation under control, one of them called for backup. Then more cops came.

And then even more cops came…

The amount of cops that were deployed here for one man was quite stunning. Normally would expect this response would be for a gang fight or even a protest. Especially the way these cops arrived and parked their patrol cars to the crime scene. Makes one worried that one of them might just come rolling in like Frank Drebin.

While the NYPD managed to prevent chaos on the sidewalk stopping someone from committing felony assault or a homicide, they managed to cause chaos on the streets creating congestion with their haphazard parking. With all that deployment, not one cop directed traffic to lessen the gridlock at one of the busiest intersections in Queens.

An ambulance arrived also, although its unsure who was being treated. Maybe the aspiring psychotic butcher might have nicked his foe during their row. The situation was quelled in about a half hour and things reverted to what passes for normal on this corner. An ambulance arrived also, although its unsure who was being treated. Maybe the aspiring psychotic butcher might have nicked his foe during their row. Although I couldn’t help but think about some other crime victim somewhere at that time could have needed the aid of a cop.

 

 

But this is sure a good way to start off the Spring in the Dirty South of Queens. In fact, less than 48 hours before two blocks north from this corner on 101st Avenue, a man shot two off-duty C.O.’s after he got bounced out of a jiggle joint by Lefferts.

 

It looks like it’s gonna get worse out here kids. If one can just bump into one crime scene into a crime scene in progress just going for a stroll on a pleasant sunny day is enough to realize that you might wind up in the “wrong place at the wrong time” in Mayor Adams New York City, which palpably feels like every place is the wrong place and every time is the wrong time.

Be aware of your surroundings kids.

Fin.
