The cops tore up the woman’s nephew’s bedroom wall and  found was about a few grams of weed. This means the NYPD are still using the same policing method that killed Breonna Taylor a year ago and did this right when Albany was in the well-publicized process of legalizing pot.

In Pomonok, an argument between two men over an available apartment held at an open house sale escalated when one of them took out a gun and shot the other in the ass. Wonder if the apartment was one of those “affordable” ones.

On Rikers Island, a convict who previously served time for killing two men and was awaiting trial for a  shooting murder a few months earlier was set free from a clerical error following a court hearing where he cursed out a judge and he was released after the time on the contempt charge got served. The fugitive did not have bail set for him because of the severity of his crime. Corrections sat on this horrifying information for 12 hours before they notified de Blasio’s NYPD. A deputy warden and four C.O.s got suspended for the drastic miscue.

A week later, another murder suspect was set free from Rikers because of another clerical error that stemmed from reducing the bail for a felony gun possession charge to $1.00 and classifying his felony murder charge as ROR, Allowing him to get Released from the prison On his own Recognizance. Fortunately for the city and society, the felon turned himself.

The other suspected killer fugitive is still running free despite de Blasio’s confidence about his recapture.

Also on Rikers Island, a prisoner serving time for avoiding to pay over $85,000 in child support got mistakenly released on a clerical error. The convict is also COVID-19 positive and took the metrocard and took NYC Transit and the LIRR home to his sister’s house in Suffolk.

Another ambush got initiated when one of the prisoners accessed a control room and opened the doors for his fellow inmates, giving them the opportunity to beat the shit out of 4 C.O.’s.

And again on Rikers Island, a prisoner serving time for avoiding to pay over $85,000 in child support got mistakenly released on a clerical error. The convict is also COVID-19 positive and took the metrocard and took NYC Transit and the LIRR home to his sister’s house in Suffolk. Even though he’s supposed to remain in quarantine under captivity for another week.

Has de Blasio, Speaker Cojo and the NY Council fauxgressive cronies ever given the thought that the reason Rikers is making C.O.’s work triple shifts is because solitary confinement has been cancelled and the only way to tamp down violence and keep order is to keep C.O.’s on duty for every minute and second that way they can justify these new supposed progressive policies? Even though it’s clearly not working? Even Jeff Bezos lets his Amazon FFC employees go home.

And while this FUBAR management is going on at Rikers, where is the NYC Jails Commissioner? Whose conspicuous absence after de Blasio put her on medical leave following the release of a fugitive killer that’s still on the loose has made her virtually unobtainable for comment?

Manhattan

In Hell’s Kitchen, a man looked directly at a 65-year-old woman walking on the sidewalk and kicked her in the chest and then stomped on her head three more times as she lied on the pavement in front of luxury apartment building, as the doorman closed the door as she writhed in pain on the ground while the man yelled at her that she didn’t belong here because of her race, which he presumed was Chinese, but she was really a Philipino woman. When the coast was clear, two building employees went outside and aided the woman although the NYPD said that no 911 calls were made after the attack despite the luxury building owners claims. The lunatic then threatened another man with a knife who tried to stop him from getting away according to a witness. 

The man got arrested at a hotel homeless shelter in 3 blocks south from where he pummeled the woman in broad daylight. The city placed him at that hotel after he served a 17-year-sentence for murdering his mother by stabbing her in the chest three times with a kitchen knife at her home in the Bronx. He was released on parole in late 2019 after being rejected two times the prior two years.

This barbaric attack was enough to garner enough local and national media  for Mayor de Blasio to give a token condemnation for violence towards Asian people, which exceedingly rose in the city he runs after he announced an undercover cop task force to catch bias violence against Asians in the act and demanded his constituents to report people even on the presumption they said slurs resembling bigotry against Asians. Which shows that everything the Blaz touches to try to stem crises of any kind, he exacerbates them

The psycho is now incarcerated and denied bail.

Also in Hell’s Kitchen, during a Black Lives Matter protest, a man got his face lacerated when a demonstrator smashed the plexiglass window of a restaurant shanty while he was eating.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man ran down the sidewalk and clotheslined a 73-year-old to the pavement in broad daylight.

 

In Harlem, a man brutally beat his 10-year-old stepson to death inside their apartment at the St. Nicholas’ Houses. On the day before the murder, cops were sent to the building to respond to a 911 call describing a man yelling threats and banging on a wall When they arrived to the source of the disturbance, they waited in a hallway and left after 12 minutes after allegedly not hearing anything and getting a voicemail trying to contact the person who notified them. The next time the NYPD sent cops to return to the building to investigate another domestic violence call, the boy was lying dead in a bathtub hours after his stepfather threatened to beat him worse than he did the day before.

During the boy’s life, the NYC ACS were regular visitors to this household, as early as when he was a baby when his mother was charged for neglect. His stepfather had prior  domestic violence arrests for beating up his mother and also assaulted another woman in front of her 3 kids. The autopsy of his final beating of his stepson found internal injuries to his organs and broken ribs.

The cops managed to arrest the passenger but not the driver and found the murder weapon on the ground.

And again in East Harlem, an app-food delivery man got shot to death in a playground after he tried to stop his killer from stealing his e-bike while he was about to eat lunch. Robberies of ebikes have seen a massive surge during the year long pandemic, mostly off of gig working undocumented immigrants who make about 60 bucks a day and are usually too scared to go to the cops to report them stolen, making them easy prey for lowlife thieves. For some reason, the delivery guys have to purchase their own bikes even though they work for tech companies that make billions of dollars and don’t pay as much taxes as regular businesses in the city.

In Midtown, a man driving a commercial van blacked out and rear-ended another car and caused it to crash into a restaurant shanty, the van driver then collided into a fruit stand set up under a building scaffold.

Kayla Estevez and her boyfriend, Ernest Wright, are pictured in an undated photo. Estevez is shown with a black eye in this photo, which her family claims was the result of domestic violence.

Her boyfriend claimed she crushed her larynx by herself. The woman suffered from bipolar disorder and her brother’s repeated calls for help to city government agencies to get help for her were for naught. So where the fuck was Thrive, @NYCFirstLady?

Again in Times Square, a man yelled a sexist insult and xenophobic slurs at a woman and told her children that she was going to kill them. Then the lunatic smacked the phone out of her hand as she was filming him and kicked it onto the tracks.

Mayor de Blasio’s Tax Boondoggle Wife Wants You To Get Your Ass Kicked Or Killed For THRIVE

New York, New York

Looks like Chirlane McCray de Blasio has a major problem. In the umpteenth pathetic attempt to justify the existence of the city’s THRIVE mental health program and administrative office, Chirlie’s idiot husband has decided to draw back the NYPD from responding to emergency complaints regarding people having dangerous mental episodes replace them with “violence interrupter” social workers and counselors to quell these situations. Just one problem, the city is having trouble hiring people to take this job, even with the decent government salary and guaranteed health insurance.

Well, Chirlie’s got to answer to that little conundrum and has decided to add another mission to her program by also having people interrupt violent outcomes from racial and xenophobic bias attacks. Apparently, because of the low interest to work for THRIVE, she is outsourcing these tasks to citizens and gave a brief orientation on her government twitter account. Sourcing instructions from some account she follows, she lays out 5 D’s in what to do when the situation arises as you are commuting to work, waiting for your train on the subway or hanging out on the street or strolling through the park one day.

If there is are D’s to describe this, they are obviously, Dumb, Dangerous and ultimately, Disaster.

Dumb: An aggressor/harasser, whether mentally ill or a regular bully, is going to ignore you if you ask him/her the time and if there was an authority figure around (she can’t just say a cop, because the city is trying to abolish and defund them) that aggressor would be hesitant already.

Dangerous: If you tried to film the situation/attack on your phone, the aggressor would smack it out of your hand and probably attack you or has seen in thousands of viral videos, filming with your celly doesn’t deter crime nor people from settling down. Besides there will surely be other people filming too, because they are not going to call the cops.

Disaster: Obviously, you have to consider the size of the aggressor and see if you want to stand up against him/her. And if you tried to “direct” the attacker would not only have assaulted or killed his target, but would demolish the violence interrupter too. Might as well add a fourth D for Demise.

If there is anything transparent about this, it’s not only that people are not going to risk their health or lives intervening in violent situations without a way to defend themselves unless they know how to beat someone up with an Ipad, is that the billion dollars Chirlie spent on the THRIVE program is bone dry and her husband can’t siphon money from other services to justify it anymore, mainly because of the pandemic and getting millions vaccinated. And now she expects the people of New York City to bail her dumb ass out and to take passive vigilante advice from some twitter account.

Sage hand-me-down wisdom from a disconnected elitist that has benefited immensely from government nepotism with the luxury of having a police escort.

UPDATE:

This is pretty rich, the activist account Chirlie cited for you to heed as unpaid volunteers to interrupt violence is tied to make up monolith corporation L’Oreal. So if you get your face bashed in middle of utilizing their 5 D’s against a person having a psychotic episode or try to step in front of a gang of racist bullies about to get a little ultraviolent, their products can come in handy covering up those bruises and stitches.

 

 

NYC’s First Lady Is A Tax Boondoggle

chirliehubrisThe Miss-Appropriation of city funding, Chirlane McCray de Blasio

City Hall, Downtown Manhattan, New York

Mayor de Blasio is in quite a pickle. He hasn’t been able to get aid from the state and because congress couldn’t agree to a goddamn stimulus, the Blaz can’t get federal funding despite all his pathetic begging and pleading and probably compounded by his asinine decision to paint Black Lives Matter in front of the President’s luxury tower. So the city’s budget ax is going to come down on a lot of administration departments and city services.

Except for one…

THE CITY

First Lady Chirlane McCray is employing a shadow staff of at least six full-time workers who don’t appear on her official roster — with their salaries paid by other city agencies or their roles obscured within the wider office of her husband, Mayor Bill de Blasio, government sources say and records show.

McCray, who is mulling a run for Brooklyn borough president, volunteers her time and is not employed by the city government. But she has built up a portfolio of work that includes a billion-dollar endeavor to improve the city’s mental health services, known as ThriveNYC.

Her staff now stands at 14, sources say — at a time that the mayor is raising the specter of laying off up to 22,000 municipal workers in October because of a pandemic-driven budget gap.

Asked for a list of her current staff members, McCray’s office last month provided the names of eight full-time employees who together collect roughly $1.1 million in salaries through the office of the mayor.

But according to current and former employees in the Mayor’s Office, as well as public records, McCray’s staff count has actually been 15 throughout much of 2020, with a collective payroll that’s closer to $2 million. A recent departure brought the staff ranks down to 14.

That count excludes other city and nonprofit employees who support McCray on specific projects that she oversees — including private fundraising on behalf of the city government, managing the Gracie Mansion mayoral residence and spearheading ThriveNYC.

The six current off-roster workers include Felicia Lee, a $140,000-a-year communications advisor employed since April 2018, whose salary is paid by the city Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The salary of a $130,000 director of policy, Grace Choi, hired in January 2019, is paid by the city Department of Social Services, according to city government sources and public records.

McCray’s 2019 public schedule shows both Lee and Choi regularly attended meetings with her — including a January 2019 “Team Lunch” at La Masa restaurant in The Bronx.

Yet officials in McCray’s office did not name those two staffers among the eight full-time employees.

McCray’s social media manager, who has been working for her for two years, also was not listed on the staff roster provided to THE CITY. Public records show she is on the payroll of the city’s Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications.

The sources and records show McCray also hired a $70,000 videographer in February, whose name was not on the list of staff members provided to THE CITY by her office.

The videographer, whose work for McCray includes a “Baking with the First Lady” clip that was posted during the height of the pandemic in early April, is listed as a Department of Health employee in city records.

Yesiree, de Blasio’s co-mayor wife’s own cosplay administration will evade getting touched while over 22,000 other city workers not in Chirlie’s little circle will get lawnmowered. What’s interesting is how Chirlie’s redundancy angels are set up in de Blasio’s administration in various city service departments where cuts are certain to go down, which are all associated with their particular skill sets and even brazenly with the NYC first lady’s videographer as a DOH worker, the way her husband is doing this is pure gangster shit like putting mafia soldiers on no-show building contractor payrolls or even a less ethical version of musical chairs.

There shouldn’t be a shadow of a doubt anymore about this shadow government. The Blaz has assembled a political campaign team in city hall for his damn wife just like he ran an illicit 501 c 4 PAC Campaign For One New York fund in there that was feigned to support progressive policies like Pre-K and affordable housing while it was mostly exploited to dole out services favorably to his real estate donors. And is shamelessly doing this despite the still existential threat from and economic uncertainty induced from COVID-19 and found a way to exploit the pandemic to integrate it with Chirlie’s boondoggle Thrive program, which has turned out to be a bigger slush fund.

And what about ThriveNYC? It’s now going on 2 billion dollars in money spent squandered and it has not produced any results on it’s efficacy and efficiency in providing mental health for New Yorkers who truly need it because ThriveNYC doesn’t even target the people who could use mental health aid, which are the homeless, people with mental afflictions, victims of domestic violence and abuses while incarcerated in prisons. In it’s first 3 years of it’s existence all it produced were banal ads reaching out to people with work anxiety and a hotline number that barely got an answer from people.

But First Lady de Blasio has been a frivolous spending festering boil in city hall for quite a while, because her idiot husband basically turn her role into an defacto/proxy administrative government office. Not only is she the boss of the ThriveNYC boondoggle, but the Blaz also appointed her as chairwoman of the Mayor’s Fund To Advance New York City, the 25-year-old city government instituted “non-profit” entity where massive donations from real estate developers with business for the city plus other rich, powerful and even famous citizens of New York contribute and also sit on the board with her. (Remember that the Blaz was soliciting cash for CONY while this sanctioned slush fund already existed.). And if you think it’s a conflict of interest to disqualify her, wrong, because the first lady is a volunteer servant and not a paid employee, which is how the Conflicts of Interest Board approved her. Which made her the ultimate “agent of the city”

The thing with Chirlie is that like her stupid husband, they spend like gambling addicts with money that doesn’t belong to them like the city’s largesse, thinking that the more they piss away expecting another jackpot. But since NYC’s first lady has been watching piles and piles of money go in and out of city hall from her “volunteer” position, she’s obviously feels entitled to it herself thinks she can put her greedy hands in the city largesse till and spend a few billions that no one would notice.

She is in many ways the Blaz’s nepotism parasite hire version of what Jared Kushner is to President Trump, given many duties and responsibilities but absolutely unskilled at how to do them. Although in Chirlie’s case, she’s been very adept on how to weaponize her position and ruse as a volunteer to promote herself as Jared utilizes his position to obscenely enrich his wife, stepfather’s and his own family’s fortunes with the policies he steers for the nation.

As for accountability for Chirlie’s ThriveNYC profligacy, good luck getting answers or even documentation about their costs and how it vaporized. The thing with ThriveNYC is that it’s like a startup tech company, all hype ad gloss and filled with people who don’t have a clue what they are doing pushing a product that has no substance while wasting and pissing tons of investment money. When the product is a bureaucracy and that money invested by taxpayers.

But now with the city going broke and services being cut leading to dilapidated park space and garbage piling on the streets to go along with the rise in crime and scarcity of real affordable housing and homelessness during this new depression, NYC’s first lady continues to be a money devouring parasite in City Hall and pussy-whipped de Blasio will not and will find ways not to mention how he’s sacrificing his employees to finance his fucking wife’s delusional political ambitions and still useless ThriveNYC program which is nothing but a patronage mill and hangout for Chirlane’s sorority friends.

Another thing about Chirlie is that her presence is pronounced and induced in City Hall because the de Blasio is a fucking idiot who has absolutely no idea how to govern and apparently he’s dependent on her for ideas, which is why he’s contrived this political posse for her and splayed them out in different departments. Because the Blaz knows that Chirlie is his meal ticket to still remain a somewhat relevant politician in New York City and having her as the Brooklyn Borough President, which is just a rubber stamp redundancy position itself, will enable them to continue to enjoy the bennies and perks that comes with, which will translate well with their Park Slope home property values. There’s no way this Brooklyn power couple is going to let a pandemic cockblock that.

It’s time defund and maybe cancel Chirlane before this city gets even more broke.

 

Federal SNAP Cuts Are Driving New York City’s Poor People, Government Agencies And City Cops To Take Drastic And Society Dismantling Chances

https://cdn3.img.sputniknews.com/images/107056/48/1070564859.pngYes, that is the baby’s head that cop is palming.

Boerum Hill, Brooklyn And Inwood, Manhattan, New York, U.S.A.

The scene was at a Human Resources Administration office in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. A mother with her 1-year-old child along with many others were waiting four hours to get assistance to get or recover SNAP benefits that were suddenly denied to them.

Reportedly, the woman, Jazmine Headley was there addressing her difficulty getting a work voucher and SNAP benefits was frustrated about her desperate situation that it led to an argument between her and the HRA staffers.

Compounding this fracas, the place was so crowded with people waiting for over four hours to get help that HRA apparently (or allegedly) ran out of chairs, leading Ms. Headley and her child no choice but to sit on the floor against the wall, which apparently didn’t sit well with the authority figures there, who then ordered HRA’s contractor security guards to command her to get up. When the Ms. Headley profusely refused they called 911 and have some police officers bounce her and her child out. Then all hell broke loose.

 

 

The video is a veritable play by play of current arbitrary police procedure. Although violently pulling an infant is a new one. How the cop managed to physically tear that kid from her mother’s arms while she was prone on the ground with 3 other cops wrestling her and not breaking his body can be considered a miracle and also if there is a NYPD training session with a doll for this type of situation. Another new one is pulling a taser and pointing it at the horrified crowd. But the usual method is in play here, like having cops or agents (like those two wearing suits) act as a shield to prevent witnesses from filming with cellphones.

The woman was eventually arrested and was quickly put through the justice system. As she faced a judge it was not only for resisting arrest and other charges brought about from the struggle with police, but also a warrant over her use of another person’s credit card. Then she was sent to Rikers Island.

This grotesque and cruel incident has gives the impression that being poor and complaining about being denied due benefits, as well as sitting on the floor against the wall in a spacious room, is now a crime in New York City.

But new information has come out in the aftermath and it has actually made this look worse for all individuals involved, and it doesn’t seem that an incident like this can even be preventable in the near future.

Being justifiably frustrated and pissed off about her SNAP benefits vanishing and missing a day at work at a job she just got and not being able to get a sitter for her child, Ms. Headley was inconsolable and took out her frustration on the HRA peace officers and workers there by profusely cursing them out. It turned out that they had spare chairs and the child was in a stroller but she refused them in a mixture of protest and spite and wound up sitting on the floor with her son.

Then the cops showed up and in another video from the front angle showed how the brutal wresting of the child began. At first it was calm has the woman was lying down on the floor protecting her baby, then the ill-thought procedure commenced and it gets worse from there. Where you can see the three cops trying to pry the child from the mother’s arms who continues to resist. You can also see the HRA agent aggressively pulled the mother’s arms and also the mother’s terrible misjudgement of wrapping her legs around and also hitting her son on the head in a vain attempt to stop them from taking him. Ms. Headly also bit the guards who tried to detain her prior to the cops showing up.

Despite the later reports on Ms. Headley and the phsyical risk she inflicted on her child, it still does not compare to the arbitrary, callous and crass handling of her situation. That is still a one-year-old child. A fragile human being. The way to handle it would have been to exercise patience and continue to talk to her and persuade her to settle down. It would have taken a while but she would have probably calmed down if they convinced her about putting her child at risk by not cooperating. Besides, it wasn’t like there was any progress going on at that SNAP center if hundreds were already waiting to be served.

But nothing can beat the half-assed empathy statements and obligatory indignation from top city officials:

From NYPD Commissioner O’Neal: “Thank goodness nobody was hurt, or at least at the time nobody reported any injuries” (What he meant to say: Thank goodness nobody reported any injuries)

From Mayor de Blasio, who noted how disturbed he was when he saw the footage, and deferred to the NYPD and HRA to get to the “bottom of it”, once again gutlessly passing the buck and shirking responsibility, leadership. And also judgement, because that HRA center security guards are provided by FJC Securities, which is already in hot water for their coverup of a man getting beat down by their guards in a homeless shelter in Brooklyn.

And most notably, the scornful avoidance and willful ignorance of the incident as shown by the pseudo-official wife of the mayor, co-mayor Chirlane McCray. As a reporter tried to question her, a woman (who was either one of her overpaid aides or a cop doing security) shoved her and made sure she kept a steady and long distance from the so-called feminist and tireless advocate for women.

Rosa Goldensohn on Twitter: “.@NYCFirstLady asked about Jazmine Headley arrest: “No comment.”… “

As for the authority figures involved in the melee’, the two HRA security guards who initially were dealing with Ms. Headley’s frustration and her volatile actions wound being suspended for a month and the cops involved with the physical extraction of the child and pulled a taser out to make the crowd disperse who were filming it will not face any disciplinary action. And also will not be identified because of the 50A provision civil rights law being profusely exploited by the NYPD to protect misbehaving and rogue cops.

The biggest tragic irony behind this is provided by well-meaning and tech-worshipping incompetent city officials. As the head honcho at HRA, Steven Banks, decided to make applying for and conducting benefit transfers for SNAP benefits through online applying through an app despite the fact that Trump and the Republican House have devoured funding from the program through draconian budget cuts which has rendered this convenience for millions of citizens who applied online for this arrangement being left in the lurch. As for SNAP, well that funding had to be diverted to pay for the oligarch welfare tax cut bill that was ratified last year by the wealthy hedonist Congressional and Senate officials and signed by the Sharpie-wielding President and also to the Pentagon for another 700+ billion dollars for the war on terror and now cyberwarfare.

Despite the booming economy, this money has not trickled down to those who need services the most, notably the working poor, who are having trouble buying food combined with the astronomically inflated rising cost of living in the five boroughs. Which includes the hundreds at Boerum Hill waiting for the aid they expected and those who suddenly had them ripped from them without notice.

Which now also includes a man who was recently victimized by government inaction and decided he was not going to take it anymore. At an HRA center in Inwood in Manhattan, Davaun Fournillier destroyed a laptop belonging to a worker while demanding to have his benefits restored and made sure to remind the staff there that “we’re not in Brooklyn” in obvious reference to the chaotic incident just a barely over a week agothen broke the wrist of a HRA guard who tried to handcuff him and detained him for the cops to arrive. When they cops showed up, they did nothing because they “didn’t know what to do”, even though Mr. Fournillier’s daughter was alone in another room waiting and they wouldn’t even call ACS or notify the child’s mom. Ironically, the prior incident in Boerum Hill has made the NYPD virtually handcuffed to respond to emergency situations at welfare offices. Not ironic and what is now atypical NYPD procedure, is that cop who said that and did not help identity’s also not being disclosed to the public.

This year of 2018 has bared witness to a lot of dystopian systematic bullshit and incompetence embedded in our government services that to summarize it would take a massive tome or 5 GB PDF file. But what happened this December at two welfare offices might have to suffice for now. And it may just be the genesis of a burgeoning insurrection that will unfold if this doesn’t get staunched. For what Ms. Headly did when she also endangered her child and what Mr. Fournillier did when he took his rage out on and assaulted that security officer which has made his personal situation even more dire now that he is facing charges and fines, were acts of resistance towards a broken unfair system still favoring the most wealthy and powerful, enabled by opportunistic selfish politicians who are using people hired to enforce the laws and maintain order as cudgels to defend these fugazi bureaucracies as taxpayer funded services continue to lag for people to desperate and to dependent on their stagnating paychecks and trying to survive under crushing economic inequities to live in NYC to fight back.

It’s not (yet), but it’s a telling start.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Errant Horizons: The Violent And Vehement Blowback From The Well But Neoliberal Intended Rikers Island Shutdown

https://dailynews.news/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/20181004new-yorknyc-crimeny-metro-union-calls-end-horizon-center-20181004-story.html_.jpgThe tattered banner says it all.

The Four Boroughs, New York

It was just over a year ago, when retired judge Johnathon Lippman and his professional peers compiled a study citing the horrid conditions regarding criminal impunity among inmates and correction officers, human rights violations and the myriad violent conditions in the environment in Rikers Island to justify it’s shutdown. After incessant publicity and promotion by fauxgressive figures like Mayor de Blasio, former speaker Melissa Mark-Viverto and various tag-along liberal sops in city council; Governor Andy Cuomo signed into law to raise the age for getting charged as an adult for minor offenses and major crimes to 17 years old (to be raised to 18 in 2019) leading to transferring of over 90 young inmates to the Horizon Juvenile Center in the South Bronx on the first of October.

With such a rare humanitarian gesture from state government towards the prison population, what could possibly go wrong. Well, a day later and the first second when the kids went through the front door of Horizon, everything did.

In a grotesque result of what happens when the bleeding hearts of well-off liberals lead to brain hemorrages, all of the teenage males took their new found limited freedom and attacked all the corrections officers appointed to watch over them. Leading to twenty of the C.O’s getting hospitalized for injuries. The majority of the kids showed visible delight knowing that the guards were not equipped with pepper spray and handcuffs, because they were denied these defensive accessories according the newly signed law. Which certainly inspired the kids to throw desks around and break windows. One scamp even took a guards uniform shirt and wore it.The kids also utilized all the free unrestricted space to reassemble their gangs and reignite their street rivalries and brawl with each other.

As for the rationale behind the lack of gratitude shown towards being held in an optically better facility from where they came, it wasn’t like the kids didn’t warn them of what was going to go down:

While stationed at Rikers, the injured officer said the teen inmates taunted Corrections staff about what would happen once they were transferred to the Bronx facility and working unarmed.

“They said ‘just wait until we get to Horizon,’” said the injured officer, who was reassigned to the 90-inmate juvenile facility when the teens were moved.

This led the Corrections Officers Benevolent Association union leader, the benevolent Elias Muhammed, to rightfully imply I told you so:

“They aren’t turnstile jumpers, the open container crowd. These are gang-bangers. They are here for robbery, attempted murder and murder.”

The chaos barely even settled down as the kids kept being surly and uncooperative every day since the tranfer as 17 more C.O.’s and even two captains were attacked by the kids.

 

Calling the reactions to the anarchy that has broke loose at Horizon by the ones driving the Rikers Shutdown as haughtily tone-deaf is literally understating it. As the bruises and broken bones from these altercations were still fresh that the usual suspects that induced this stupid transference went into spinning dervish mode.

Beginning today, no one under 18 will go to Rikers Island,” tweeted Mayor de Blasio. “Kids will be treated like kids instead of adults. This is an historic moment for criminal justice reform and another step toward replacing Rikers Island with smaller, safer, more humane facilities.”

 

Gov. Cuomo also tweeted Monday, writing “As of today, NY’s Raise the Age Law is now in effect. This law raises the age of criminal responsibility, removes 16-year-olds from the adult criminal justice system, and prohibits 16- & 17-year-olds from being housed at Rikers Island. A big step forward for our justice system.”

“All 16- and 17-year-olds have been transferred from Rikers Island to Horizon Detention Center,” said ACS spokeswoman Chanel Caraway. “We are in a transitionary period for a historic reform that’s never been done before and there have been some incidents involving youth and officers, which were quickly addressed. None of the injuries were serious, but we take these and all incidents seriously.”

That last statement was a doozy, for it leads open the suspicion that Ms. Caraway has never felt of even seen a broken bone or surface wound. But the damning thing about this is that this transfer was under the purview of the Administration Of Children’s Services. Which is a wonder why they didn’t send guards from that government office and laid the care and security of the center on the Department Of Corrections. Certainly that may have driven the young inmates to go giddy at the prospect of getting some sort of revenge on their former captors.

Another thing about the Horizon transfer is why wasn’t the near billion dollar mental health program THRIVE run by de Blasio’s wife and co-mayor Chirlane was somehow not involved in this? Being that the reason behind this transfer was to get them away from the mentally traumatizing environment in the cells of Rikers. But the answer to that is that even the officials in those government offices knew damn well of the potential danger lied ahead if they sent their counselors there and obviously did not want to risk injury or even death. Despite all the alleged empathy behind this transfer and the Rikers shutdown in general is the obvious concern and fear knowing how those 90+ formerly incarcerated kids will violently react.

If there has been some actual progress in this nascent stage of criminal rehabilitation is that the city finally acknowledged that they had to make conditions safer at Horizon by bolting down the desks so the gangbangers don’t weaponize them and fogging the windows so they don’t see each other (even though they definitely are aware of each others existence, duh.)

Meanwhile, as Horizon is currently and temporarily faded into the background, plan b of the city’s mentally mad Rikers closing is gathering methane releasing steam with the building of new prisons in neighborhoods in the boroughs except for Staten Island (which with the failure of the ferris wheel, they actually have prime real estate to glom for a prison there). And it will also be understating how contentious (although utterly inspiring) the reactions of the communities from those towns are.

What started in a scarcely reported city hall meeting scarcely meaning that it was closed to the press and public that was only with by a tweet, in what can be derived of being under the impaired influence from the Lippman Study and the still unmentioned pernicious influence of big time real estate investors and the lobbying involved from both entities, the city wants to build smaller prisons in the metropolitan areas of Kew Gardens, Queens; Downtown Brooklyn; Chinatown, Manhattan, and bizarrely and most inappropriately on a residential street corner in Mott Haven in the Bronx.

The unmistakable fury and abject objections for the city’s tactless and crass plans to place jails was dominant in recent hearings in Kew Gardens and Mott Haven. And why wouldn’t it, because like every other ill-thought policy that comes from and is induced onto the constituency from de Blasio’s city hall city planners and (whoever the new agents of the city are) is executed by stealth and with arrogance and disingenuous self-righteous blather. For example, the neighborhood jail plan draft was initiated in a secret meeting in city hall among officials and some persons of interest that was closed to the public and reporters according to a tweet by a writer from Gothamist, then the draft was disseminated to reporters hours later. (Foul fact, when that cityblog folded, de Blasio arranged a meeting with them for some bullshit discussion but mostly to bloviate what a progressive icon he is.)

And what a draft it is. Because you see, the plan is to not just put prisons in residential areas. Oh no, your fucking city wants to place prisons where criminals will be serving long sentences in towers. Towers ranging from 20 to 40 stories! Because you see, the city and obviously the unmentioned caring folks from real estate and development, want to integrate unsightly prisons with residential living and commerce by having apartments built with them and stores to shop or restaurants to dine in.

81518closerikers3.jpgTake this dumbshit rendering please and shove it up your neoliberal asses.

It seems the reason for these stylish glossy penitentiaries is so it seamlessly and aesthetically blends in with all the other glossy towers that have arose in Brooklyn and Manhattan and the presence of towers will hopefully spur high market speculation in Kew Gardens and Mott Haven (leading to pestilent gentrification). But it mostly gives the impression that the neoliberal powers that be think that towers and the vector of upscale living it emits will be able to camoflage the inconvenient truth about the existence of crime and criminals. Just like the rationale that affordable housing can only exist with luxury tower development, resulting mostly in camoflaging the existence of destitution and homelessness. On the subject of affordable housing, these towers with jails will also conveniently yet slightly speed up de Blasio’s bogus affordable housing program in a way too since it doesn’t take much thought to speculate that no one would pay market rate to live in the same building with convicts milling around the lower floors. And judging by the fury of the citizenry of these targeted areas, those people obviously wouldn’t want to live there either.

These spanking new jails are suppose to materialize only if the prison population decreases to 5000. Which is a super tall order considering that major crimes like murder and rape have had incremental increases and all other crimes like grand larceny, assault and battery and burglary have remained steady.

But damn if these big brainiacs in their elected, exalted government jobs and a clueless, oblivious heiress and her non-profit operation aren’t going to stop trying to fulfill this #Rikersshutdown mission in spite of tax-paying residents rejections and the inevitable societal malaise that will occur.

That heiress would be Kerry Kennedy and her foundation. Who has put up five million dollars to post bail for women prisoners in Rikers and even those ultraviolent kids in Horizon despite prior arrests and serving time for attempted murder, robbery and assault. Which those teenagers committed again immediately on Horizon’s admission day . One female convict and recidivist criminal who held up a sex shop at knifepoint that Kerry’s foundation bailed out by contributing $25,000, didn’t show up at her court hearing to ensure her new found charitable freedom.

Then there was a murder committed by a man who scored a plea dea by D.A. Cy Vance after he was charged for possessing an illegal gun. Just a week and a day after Vance’s way too trusting decision, that man got involved in a street hassle with another man on the street and chase him down and shot him in cold blood.

Another thing these fauxgressive intellectuals like Lippman, Kennedy, and progressive issue bandwagon jumpers and stowaways like de Blasio and Cuomo don’t get or even acknowledge are the people, the victims of the crimes committed at them from these kids and adults. Victims of a rape, robbery, burglary, assault and murder of course are being violated of their human rights too. Which is hard to conceive by people isolated in the upper echelons of society and class and those elected officials daily protected by an entourage of cops. And deep down they know it’s a fact, because before the transfers of juvenile delinquents to the Bronx and these obligatory bullshit town hall hearings for the boro prisons, the city’s commitment to upgrade and renovate Rikers Island to make it handicap accessible is still going on at the cost of 50 million dollars.

And even de Blasio is not immune from his fears (and he has many this man is a giant coward) of the presence of these inmates as well as the existence of crime itself. When the weak ass mayor decided to hold a press conference at the 40th Pct. back in July, he ordered that prisoners detained in the cells there be moved to the 41st Pct. across town. The illogical logistics led to the latter Pct. forced to assemble a command post outside of their station to handle the load of new arrests, being that the 40th has seen a large rise of crime in that district.

The cognitive dissonance and brazen hypocrisy by him as well as the other suspects mentioned here shows that these plans have no basis in reality or common sense and is irresponsible. But mostly incompatible with the towns they want to dump these prisons on and even on the inmates they purport to help. The corrections officers and the citizenry are extremely right to reject these programs.

Bo Deitl, during his disruptive, incorrigible and juvenile behavior during the mayoral debates around this time last year made the best observation about Rikers Island: “Why don’t we fix what we got”. That sentiment desperately still needs to be applied here. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to help these convicts and make certain that they are dwelling in a safe environment during their incarceration. After all, prisoners have rights. But these reform plans and the officials minds that concocted and executing them, along with the rationales behind them are as hardheaded and maladjusted as most of the kids that rioted  the first day at Horizon and any recidivist criminal continuing to commit crimes on the streets against the citizenry.

 

 

Co-Mayor Chirlane McCray de Blasio Ditches Press Conference She Arranged.

snapshotfirstladyChirlane McCray. Getting the fuck outta dodge, shunning accountability and the press inquiries. (CBSNY)

Chirlie, you can’t be serious?

Chirlane McCray puts out a release on actual Mayor Of The City Of New York letterhead  for a press conference to encourage women’s empowerment about a taxpayer funded website to support women looking to start businesses and then splits from the scene while the women she claims to support stand there and the press gaggle who she promised to address watch her walk away.

Is this anyway for someone of such stature like a First Lady to act? Especially after a year of her husband’s first term, the First Lady has become a de facto government position and she has actually made big official moves like forming another pay-to-play slush fund “non-profit” in City Hall called the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York featuring some of the city’s elite business people on it’s board (one of which is now indicted) and being responsible for the obscenely expensive and apparently useless THRIVE mental health program.

And is this anyway for a person not elected to serve to act considering that she has ingratiated herself in her husband’s duties by picking people to fill positions in his administration and possibly has shaped city policies or arranged meetings with special interest groups. And is meta-obviously using her husbands mayoralty as a springboard for her own career in politics and elected office like some dummy who lost the presidency to Donald Trump.

Apparently, it is and Chirlie doesn’t give a damn. As Marcia Kramer, and only Marcia Kramer in that crowded Blue Room of disrespected journalists, was willing to get in her face about this latest affront to government accountability from de Faustio’s administration.

If you look at the Co-Mayor in the beginning, she is nervously shifting her glances towards the crowd, as if she knows she’s about to get some questions she wouldn’t like. Or probably saw Ms. Kramer and was already set to jet the room, as the subject of de Faustio’s insouciant remark about “hyper complaint dynamics” coming from not so empowered female city worker victims with sexual harassment complaints of their male supervisors and co-workers, would kill the identity politic inspirational party vibe going on. Or maybe about the error-laden hot line to report sex trafficking of young women that she announced last month. Or how the tech douches hired by City Hall will screw this lady website up like every other specialized program purporting to help the vulnerable in this city.

And as Ms. Kramer also observed and got to ask the insecure First Lady coming out of the building, being that the event she arranged for women empowerment, would she publicly endorse and empower Cynthia Nixon for her run for governor. Well, Chirlane stuck to her script (and not the city’s as she promised) using her pussy power (not the  feminist irony but the coward term) and blew off the question and fled to her tax-payer funded town car with her entourage. The funny thing is that by blowing off that question will only serve to benefit Ms. Nixon and her terrible campaign, being that she’s already far behind and most of the citizens of New York despise de Faustio and surely Chirlane, which will fuck up Cynthia’s run with their toxic endorsement as if the hot rumors being that they are behind her gubernatorial bid in the first place.

But to pull off a stunt like this is beyond crass and arrogant, character traits that Chirlane and her husband profoundly display every time they tout a program and in recent appearances together or individually. Which now add to the brazen criminal incompetence and willful obliviousness that’s in the ether around Park Row and all it’s official departments.  It’s now apparent that taking the press for a ride is now city policy along with the gaslighting and narrative controlling from the mayor and first lady other mayor.

The press really needs to get their asses lit on fire and be more aggressive (Hell, they could have grilled Glen right there when she took the mike and asked her why isn’t there sufficient or even any affordable or supportive housing and how come the towers recently built to accommodate the affordable housing program are already showing debilitating conditions, or if her acquaintance Ron Moelis has sent her a basket of wines and cheeses for her sterling hookups for the alleged affordable housing developments). Because Chirlane Wilhelm and her husband are going to continue to walk away, leaving their constituents, mostly the ones with XX chromosomes, and Your City hanging and in the lurch again and again as they have done in the last 5 years of fauxgressive neoliberal policies that don’t do shit for the people but benefit the radical chic crowd.

Ms. Kramer can’t do it alone or forever, despite her dedication she’s getting too old for this shit and it’s a pathetic sign that she was the only outside waiting for the self-exalted First Lady. There has to be younger bashers out there (as well as a breakup of corporate influence on network news and more independent news shows) so a Chirlane McCray mayoralty or even governorship in N.Y. can be dutifully and mercifully prevented.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“First Lady” Chirlane McCray Starts Stupid, Redundant And Racist Mental Health Program

 

 

https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse3.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.Hgl0UBfb2DwVB_-8ZXUlugHaE8%26pid%3DApi&f=1

NY Daily News: Chirlane McCray rolls out mental health support program to help black men

The city will partner with fraternities and service organizations to offer more mental health help to black men, First Lady Chirlane McCray said Monday as she rolled out a program dubbed “Brothers Thrive.”

“People often feel more comfortable talking about these topics when they’re among people who look like them, people who they feel some kinship or affinity with,” McCray said. “It’s just easier to relax and know that their words will have meaning and validity and credibility.”

Holy shit. Chirlane didn’t do what I think she did.

No she didn’t.

Yes she did. Wow, she did. Co-mayor Chirlane McCray is going to siphon from her and the city’s $800 million dollar mental health initiative THRIVE NYC that she runs in her nepotistic appointed bogus government office position (yes, First Lady is now a government job) to focus primarily on black men in a separate but equal program.

This expensive mental health program has been in existence going on 3 years and somehow, someway it has to have an exclusive department to deal with black men and women (Sisters Thrive was initiated shortly before this recent announcement). How come THRIVE not been effective all this time for afflicted Black People before?

And what does this mean for all the other races of people afflicted with mental illness and issues? Hispanics, Asians, Indians, Middle Eastern, and those of European and Russian origins?

What it does mean is that they will be denied focused treatment by members of certain fraternities of interest assigned by the self-regaled First Lady (did I mention that this is now a government job. Yes I did. Even Melania Trump doesn’t have these bonafides and she’s a real first lady).

Members of the organizations — Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., and 100 Black Men — will receive mental health first aid training from the city, which they can then use to reach out to those in their community who might be facing challenges.

So these frats are going to get mental health first aid training from the city. It’s a bit off-putting that being that these are fraternities one would assume that some of them would have doctors or psychiatrists as members. What could this supposed training entail?

And aren’t frats by tradition known by their strict exclusivity? Isn’t having these frats and appointing and providing them government funded training a bit unconstitutional? What would be the reaction if these civic services were bestowed upon a White fraternity? Or to be properly encompassing Chinese, Hispanic, Indian or Jewish and Middle Eastern fraternities? Or even homosexual and transgender groups? Wouldn’t they just be as credible and valid in dealing with suffering citizens of their racial, religious, and national makeup?

You think with 800 million fucking dollars there would be unlimited help being dispensed among all the races. And being that this THRIVE thing has been in existence for 3 years, this Brothers (and Sisters) program confirms that it has been ineffective for and absolutely useless to the Black Communities.

It’s a shame that all that money went to waste when that money could have went to preserve and build new hospitals and community centers for those affected with mental illness and instability and even people under massive duress caused by the cost of living in this city and living in uninhabitable conditions like in NYCHA apartments and homeless hotel rooms.

The motive for this new and selective program might stem from the recent preventable deaths of mentally ill Black citizens in the last few years from excessive and standard procedural force by the NYPD. Will this mean that when 911 is called some frat brother or sorority sister from THRIVE’s team will be embedded with the cops? This is just a simplistic theory but it’s more than what can be said of a program that the majority of New Yorkers don’t know anything about or even if it’s existence is truly justified.

But the city and the First Lady knows what’s good for the mental health and stability for it’s citizens Black citizens. Hopefully now that there is selective focus on them, they will get the help they need that was clearly overlooked before.
