Aloha. From the safest big city in America, as proclaimed on this robust bold face lettered sign on a dais table in a room at 1 Police Plaza, four major crimes have gone up in the borough of Queens last year. Rapes went up by 40% with 389 from 302, felony assaults went up by 1.2% with 3,848 from 3,820, grand larceny went up by 4% with 8,070 from 7,842, and murders are up by 20% with 62 from 50 from last year. Buglaries and robberies went down in some significant margins in the hundreds yet stagnant enough to remain in the 2,500 totals, and grand theft auto incidents remained the same at around 1,550.
So let’s begin this first reality check with the borough of the world.
In Jackson Heights, a 82-year-old woman got killed while walking in the crosswalk by an unlicensed driver who hit her with her car and then backed up over her body trying to get away. The NYPD charged the driver with driving without a license, failure to yield and to “use due care”. The latter meaning, not killing anyone while driving a 2000 pound vehicle. This really looks like voluntary manslaughter being that the driver showed intent to flee the scene.
Also in Jackson Heights, two men broke into an apartment by breaking the window after ringing the doorbell for thirty minutes in a robbery attempt then ran away with nothing.
Again in Jackson Heights at the Roosevelt/74th Avenue Station, a man committed suicide by jumping on the tracks as the F train arrived.
And again in Jackson Heights, an off-duty cop punched his mom in the face during a domestic dispute.
In Long Island City at the Court Square Station, a woman hit a motorman in the head with her bag when he tried to break up a fight she was having with another commuter on the G train.
Again in Long Island City at the Queensbridge Houses, a man escaped from police during a lineup search from a call of drug dealing on the first floor of one of the buildings.
And again in LIC at the Queensbridge Houses, a man shot his gun inside an apartment and fled the building.

Again in Jamaica, a man escaped from his parole officer’s office while still handcuffed and ran out to the streets.
And again in Jamaica,a fire engulfed a house converted into a boarding home, killing an 84-year-old woman.
And again in Jamaica, another city bus got stolen while the driver was taking a lunch break, making it three in a month by this kid. This time by another rambunctious kid who cruise around with his buddies for two hours and abandoned the vehicle in Cypress Hills. The MTA decided to install key ignitions in their fleet of 5,700 buses in the next few months, although storage is still an issue because they still have to leave them out in the open on the street for a lack of lots to park them. Better hope some domestic terrorist or random mental person doesn’t take one for a joyride too and plow a crowded sidewalk full of pedestrians during the upgrades.
And again Jamaica, a man driving wildly on the boulevard crashed into a car and two people on the sidewalk while being pursued by the cops. He was pantless when he got arrested.
And again in Jamaica, a man walked up to a news van and opened the door, then yelled at a reporter about why he’s there and smacked his cellphone out of his hand. When the reporter went to retrieve his phone on the street, the culprit then tried to run him over with his car.
A fire that killed two elderly men in an apartment building in Jamaica last December as been upgraded to homicide and arson.

The same club where a Grammy nominated rapper threw glasses at two bartenders there. One of the victims died 2 days later.
Also in College Point, a three alarm fire engulfed a warehouse, injuring a worker inside.
In Woodhaven, a man walked into a laundromat and punched a woman who worked there in the face and dragged her to a bathroom and strangled her.
Also in Woodhaven, a supervisor for NYCHA got busted for cabinets and kitchen appliances worth $1,300 that was meant for public housing.

In Kew Gardens, a man shot up a parked car multiple times.
In South Ozone Park, a driver killed himself and his passenger after speeding on the Belt Parkway when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a lamp post, splitting the car in half.
In Rego Park, a fire broke out on the fifth floor of an apartment building, killing a resident and injuring three others.
In Astoria, a man was caught stealing pricey toilet fixtures from the men’s room of a Wendy’s. This theft was part of a spree of restroom burglaries in 8 other restaurants in the world’s borough.
Also in Astoria, two men in the middle of stealing a scooter parked by a diner fled with the vehicle after they threatened an employee at knifepoint who tried to stop them.
Again in Astoria, a man was confronted by two men on the F train who sat down next to him and asked for money. When the commuter told them he didn’t have any and decided to verify it by showing his empty wallet, his accomplice then stuck a boxcutter to his face and threatened to cut him while he snatched his wallet and took his cellphone.

Also in Flushing, a man was furiously knocking on the door of a couple’s apartment and yelling. After getting the door slammed on him, he fired his gun and his accomplice fired his gun in the side window, hitting a woman in the leg while she was in the kitchen.
Again in Flushing, a firehouse got infected with scabies, forcing it to close for delousing and leaving smoke-eaters all itchy.
And again in Flushing, a man destroyed eleven statues inside a Buddhist temple.
And again in Flushing, a man slashed another man with a box cutter during a fight inside a deli.
And again in Flushing, a fire engulfed a home, killing a woman.
In Maspeth, a woman had her car practically robbed by her city when a DOT worker affixed a no parking sign when there wasn’t one before when she parked in that spot. A traffic cop arrived just minutes later and towed her vehicle to the pound.
In Elmhurst, a professional bench warming football player stiffed an app-hail driver of $32, leading to his arrest when the driver called the cops. During processing of his arrest at the 115th Pct., he punched a cop in the face.

Captain saw him, he got punched in the face by the thief and then got into a physical struggle with him, then he managed to pull his gun and shoot him.
On the Jackie Robinson Parkway, an ATM machine was found ripped apart and destroyed in a wooded area near Forest Park, which led cops to a chop shop in Bed-Stuy that had three other ATM’s that were stolen in that neighborhood, leading to the arrest of six men.
At Kennedy Airport, a truck hauling human fecal matter crashed into a airplane on the tarmac.
On Rikers Island, the rise in violence, notably stabbings, and a shortage of correction officers on patrol, has led to a drop down in attendance in the prison’s education program for high school aged inmates.
In Washington Heights, two men loitering on the staircase of the 169th Street Station entrance who were annoying and harassing commuters were approached by two cops who were called to tell them to stop obstructing and move along. After cursing out the officers, the men suddenly put up their dukes and were provoking them to fight. The cops then pulled out their batons to defend themselves from the derelicts.
Despite getting hit with the stick, the man continued to swing at the cop, leading to a chase and the cop succeeding in getting him down to asphalt. As the copand a couple detectives held him. the cop, showing poor judgement and lack of restraint despite being vexed by the thugs, repeatedly wailed on him with the baton.
The social media video (which had outstanding play by play a woman who witnessed the entire altercation) and another video posted before the street hassle erupted shows the thugs were the agitators. Apparently, the skell who got the worst of the beatdown was involved in other prior violent altercations with the NYPD, and boasted how he had three lawsuits against the city and was awarded settlements and talking shit about how the cops can’t touch him.
The dynamic douches are known to citizens in the area for selling K-2 and were also recently involved in a scrum with cops by attacking them with bats just last month.
The dick who bragged that this will be his fourth lawsuit against the city, hopefully the D.A. prosecuting this arrest should probably bring these taunts and salient facts to the judge who will hear this case. Unfortunately and nauseatingly, the braggart was released and not charged for his role in the street fight with the cops he started. This is why the cops have to tamp down on the use of excessive force, because these opportunist bastards are taking advantage of social justice policies and citizens demands to hold cops accountable for such actions.
Also in Washington Heights, a man stabbed his wife to death in their apartment, then committed suicide by stabbing himself and jumping off a balcony stemming from a marriage separation.
Again in Washington Heights at the 181 St. Station, a homeless man who failed to catch a bag of food that his friend threw at him which fell onto the tracks, decided to go onto to trackbed and retrieve it, but slipped and fell when he tried to go back on the platform. Then the 1 train arrived and the man miraculously survived getting splattered by crawling in the trough.
At this same train station at Washington Heights, it has become a brazen den of iniquity for junkies blatantly shooting smack in front of commuters as discarded syringes are spread out all over the platform and trackbed. This will probably add up since Governor Andrew Amazon has allocated $598,000 to the state health department to provide more syringes for the smack shooters which are dispensed from a mobile unit truck that happens to be parked across the street from this station (!!!) , kind of like Mr. Softee (anyone wanna do a photo shop of the iconic vanilla swirl head mascot as a junk peddler). Maybe Transit President Byford can ask for some of those needle disposal boxes that are barely being used in Cortona Park in the Bronx.
And again in Washington Heights, a woman killed herself and injured her passenger when she drove her car in the wrong direction on a road by Riverside Blvd, then crashed into another car then careening through a wall and landing on a cemetery grounds.

In Midtown, a gang of teenage boys robbed seven newsstands by stealing candy then robbing the cash when the proprietor runs after them or they just punch them in the face and grab the loot from behind the counter. Truly Dickensian times your city is in, Fagin would be proud of these scamps.
Also in Midtown, a man punched a random man in the face at a hospital. The perp once got off on a double murder charge 10 years ago for stabbing and killing two people on the 2 train and has been a naughty recidivist since.
Again in Midtown, two men pulled off a burglary spree of restaurants starting at Wolfgang’s by busting down the glass door and robbing cash and booze, then went west and bashed a glass facade of another restaurant but was chased out by an employee, then they went up 20 blocks and broke into a Ray’s Pizza and stole two cash registers.
And again in Midtown, a man that got caught shoplifting in a high end department store jumped into his car when he saw cops waiting outside and sped away, damaging other cars and sideswiping bike riders during the getaway.

And again in Midtown, a retired NYPD officer left her semi-automatic gun inside a comfort food restaurant bathroom and found it missing when she went back to get it. The rationale behind her possessing the weapon is from a perk awarded to retiring cops validating concealed-carry permits.
And again in Midtown at the 42nd St/Bryant Park Station, an imbecile decided to take a stroll on the train tracks, causing delays on six transit lines.
And again in Midtown at the 7th Avenue Station, a 21-year-old died after she fell down the stairs while carrying her one-year-old daughter and a stroller filled with groceries as both escalators at the station were only going up.
The NYPD and a city medical examiner concluded that the woman died from a “pre-existing medical condition” after first determining that she died from the fall but did not divulge what that what condition it was. Although the woman’s relatives said she had a thyroid issue and was suffering from migraines the day before her death.
First off it’s amazing the expediency was to investigate this so fast to get a result for how this preventable tragedy occurred, preventable meaning that this station should have fucking elevators. Second is how the examiner utilized an Obamacare stipulation to determine how the woman died, which just stinks of undermining the severity of the woman’s fall. Could her pre-existing condition been aggravated by the fall from hauling the cumbersome load of the stroller with the groceries while precariously holding her baby while walking down the steep staircase?
In the Upper East Side and Murray Hill, four teenage boys robbed four produce cart vendors of a total of $1,500 in a crime spree a week before the newsstand robberies above.
Also in the Upper East Side, a woman committed suicide by jumping from her apartment window.

Also in Harlem, a fireman crashed a firetruck with two of his children riding along with him into a dumpster and a parked car and drove it away during a holiday event arranged by the FDNY Engine 69. No report was ever filed of the accident and all of his fellow smokeeaters colluded to cover up the hit-and-run.
Again in Harlem, a pregnant EMT worker was assaulted by a drunk man she was treating as he punched her in the stomach when she recommended he go to a hospital for his injuries.

Also in Chelsea, a water main broke on 7th Ave and 15th Street, causing the road to collapse and release tons of water onto the L train tunnel leading to suspending service on the line. This should put a literal damper on the governor’s new fix it plan.
In Soho, a man broke into a store selling popular tech products by smashing the window at 1 a.m., and robbed over 50 items worth $75,000.
Also in Soho, a woman and man plundered an painting from an art gallery and ran away. The curator gave up chase and claimed that the piece wouldn’t get resold. That is very strange reaction, especially considering the vanishing of a DaVinci painting worth 450 million dollars and the lack of effort or investigation to find it.
In the East Village, a woman was awaken from her sleep by a man who was standing above her in her bedroom. After he raped her, he demanded $1,000 from her. When she told the predator that she didn’t have it, he bounded her with duct tape and stole her bank card, phone and laptop.
Also in the East Village, an off-duty cop was held up at gunpoint and assaulted by a man who pistol whipped him on the street trying to rob his cellphone.

In Central Park, a man robbed a police scooter from the Central Park Pct. and drove it all the way to New Jersey. Cops didn’t realize it was gone for about three hours before they activated the GPS on it. The vehicle can only be operated with a universal key, which means some dummy must have left the engine running.
In the Upper West Side, a 17-year-old boy was stabbed in the chest in front of pizzeria and died hours later after refusing to provide the cops with his killer’s identity or description.
Also in the Upper West Side by Central Park, an argument between two men escalated when one of them pulled his gun out and shot at the other man who fled and jumped over a wall in the park.
Again in the Upper West Side, an SRO apartment building fire killed one and injured two people.
And again in the Upper West Side, a man loitering inside an apartment building jumped a woman and her mother in the lobby and held them up at knifepoint and forced them into their apartment where he tied them up with electrical tape. When the woman’s father showed up and knocked on the door, the man held a knife to his daughter’s neck and ordered her to let him in and then tied him up to a chair with a belt then robbed them of their credit cards and split. The daughter broke free and called the cops leading to the perpetrators arrest after resisting the cops by fighting with and spitting on them. It turned out that the man was currently homeless and on parole.
And again on the Upper West Side, a big fucking couch is perched on a tree’s branches. The city has been giving concerned citizens the runaround deferring responsibility to other departments to remove it.

Also in the Lower East Side, a man smothered his 8-month-old son to death in his wife’s apartment at the Gompers Houses.

In the West Village, a woman committed suicide by hanging herself in her apartment.
And grand larceny has gone up on the subways in 2018 attributed to an international team of pickpocket thieves. Kind of makes this city feel like it’s slowly reverting back to the days of the Artful Dodger or just an imitation of Tijuana, Mexico.
In Sheepshead Bay, a man ran into a Chinese buffet restaurant screaming with a hammer and attacked three men who worked there. Killing a chef instantly by bludgeoning him in the head, and critically injuring the owner and another employee who both days later died from their injuries in the bias attack.

In Borough Park, a drunk man went inside a deli and wanted to crash in there and take a nap. When the clerk told him he couldn’t do that, the vagrant asshole suddenly found energy and went nutso, knocking over the lotto machine and cash register then assaulted him, slamming him against the refrigerators, punching him repeatedly and throwing him to and dragging him on the floor. Then he continued to trash the place, knocking over snack racks and throwing candy all over the place.
Also in Borough Park, a traffic cop trying to tow a parking violator’s car was disrupted by a group of three boorishly arrogant and crass men who managed to dislodge the car off the police truck and started to racially bait the cop while enabling the lawbreaking driver to flee, flee, flee. The three thugs then kept badgering the officer by calling him a loser and made threats that he will lose his job like they thought they were Jona Rechnitz or Jeremy Reichberg or some other politically and higher brass police connected powertripping asshole like them.
In Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, a fugitive wanted for his role in a murder of a man in Ozone Park in 2017 was shot at by FBI agents trying to enter an apartment he was hiding in, blowing out the windows and scaring the shit out of other tenants. The suspect was arrested and a hundred cops were deployed to manage the crowds, despite the fact that there were virtually no citizens outside for the phalanx to disburse.
In Bushwick, a man suckerpunched a 16-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy on their heads inside a Bushwick Houses building while they were waiting for the bus to go to school. The lunatic then hit a woman with a tree branch outside moments later.

Again in Bushwick, a police officer was busted selling $25 worth of marijuana inside of a liquor store. Well, you got to take the badge and the power and responsibility that goes with it seriously, it isn’t like you can give out gun permits to famous people like the President and his sons, his former fixer Michael Cohen or to some of de Blasio’s special donors under the diligent watch of the legendary Commissioner William Bratton.

The two thieves ran away when two cops showed up, with one of them dropping their gun. The cops then looked at the weapon but decided to leave it on the ground. A few minutes later a man saw it as the cops were walking away, picked it up and fled. The NYPD allegedly disciplined the cops, who remain unidentified because of the 50A ruling that’s supposed to protect police from criminals from finding out where they reside but is more often used as a shield to cover up malfeasance, incompetence, use of excessive force, and in this case, insouciance.
Also in Fort Greene, a man committed suicide by lying on the tracks in a tunnel near the Lafayette Ave. Station. as the A train ran over him.

Wonder what would give him the inspiration for the latter. Good riddance.

While she was bleeding, the man tried to silence her as the woman defended herself, causing him to run away.
While at the hospital, cops showed up to question the victim but she couldn’t recall if they actually asked anything to her and she found out the case wound up being closed a week after her attack.
The cops eventually arrested the suspect on Jan. 28, over 3 weeks after the attack. Because two days after this arrest and during that long time span while he was on the loose, a 69-year-old was murdered in Stapleton and found dead inside a house and this guy is suspected in this case because of a video capture of the suspect holding her arm and bringing her inside there. The deceased was also brutally beaten, and there is footage of the man leaving the premises by himself.
Now it turns out the initial earlier brutal assault case was marked closed because of a clerical error made by an city worker filing it at the 120 Pct. and the police sergeant working the desk allowed it to pass even though the detectives assigned to the case never interviewed the assault victim. Asked about how this incompetence that might have cost a woman her life, Chief Terrance Monihan gave thoroughly tone-deaf excuses of “administrative errors” and it “happens everywhere in life.” And also “(It) probably should’ve been caught then but it wasn’t. Now we’ve got to look what could have been done to shorten that time span, were there any systematic errors, any personnel errors.”
“They see, wow, this case shouldn’t be closed, it should be open,” he said. “They reopen the case and send it up to the detectives for investigation.”
NYPD Commissioner O’Neil “This is a terrible tragedy, so we’ll be taking a look — a total look –at it.”

The woman turned in her boyfriend to the cops after reporting a false emergency even though he physically attacked her in a domestic dispute. The suspect was brought to the stationhouse where he is claiming innocence and that he was being coerced to admit the killing by police interrogating him.
Further police investigations in search of the victim’s body also searched a construction company lot with a history of building violations in Port Richmond owned by a man who let the suspect live in an apartment building he ran and is now also suspected for aiding and abetting the ditching of the body, and ended in a landfill in Pennsylvania.
And this post ends with the bizarre, peculiar and improbable death of the Saudi Arabian sisters, who were being demanded by their nation to return home and who were found dead duct taped to each other by their wrists and ankles by the Hudson River in Riverside Park in December was ultimately ruled a suicide by this city’s medical examiner. So that’s the end of that. Well, the Sauds do invest in a lot of tech companies operating in your city and we certainly can’t disrupt that or upset them with murder conspiracy theories.
And it also should be noted that the killer of Brandy Odom, who butchered her and left her severed remains in plain sight on the paths in Canarsie Park 10 months ago is still lurking around.
