To start off chapter 90 of the New Bad Days chronicles of New York City, here is this tweet straight from some putz who works for NYC Council, trying to snarkily dispel any criticism or even palpable evidence that the city they represent is “dead”. Well it may not be dead, but it sure is bleeding, wounded and fucking more dangerous than it’s been in over 20 years (and fucking broke as well but that’s for another inevitable post) with 121 percent more shootings this month compared to October 2020, emphasized by the shooting deaths of teenagers in gun and gang violence. And all this is happening during Mayor deBacle’s recovery for all of us.

In October’s post about NYPD’s compstat index crime stats on the NYC Mayor’s website and despite how it was pathetically white washed, there were 399 murders committed in 2021 which is just 8 shy of the total for the entire year of 2020. Other crimes that have exceeded the totals of last year are rapes with 1,241, robberies with 10,822, grand larcenies with 30,768 (!!!!) and auto theft with 8,084 (the only “improvement” is the decrease in burglaries even though there were still 10,000 committed).

Keep up the snark city council cronies, because those red flags only symbolize the blood that’s spilled this month and all year long.

Manhattan

In Times Square at the 42nd St. Station, a woman got up from a bench and randomly pushed another woman off the platform and missed killing her by a second as the 1 train was arriving, but still caused serious injuries to the victim who fell back onto the concrete from the impact of getting hit by the train. Then the woman casually walked away.

The mentally ill woman had multiple priors for charges of assault and robbery, her most recent offenses were robbing a cellphone after scratching a woman’s face and savagely beating down a woman on the A train after getting into and argument with a man who shoved her and a judge released her with a desk appearance ticket for breaking her victim’s nose and knocking her teeth out. This time a smart judge imprisoned her on $100,000 bail and charged her with murder.

Also in Times Square and also at the same station, a man shot himself in the leg while taking a piss on the platform.

Again in Times Square at the 42nd St. Station on 8th Ave., a homeless man ripped the wallet out of another man’s hand after he refused to give him money.

And again in Times Square, a man yelled racial slurs and threatened to stab a woman on the street in broad daylight.

And again in Times Square, a homeless man snatched a cellphone off a woman on the street and then shoved another woman onto the pavement when he was running away. The woman wound up in a coma after landing her head on the curb from the fall and died from her injury days later, leading the judge to charge him with murder at his arraignment.

And again in Times Square, a homeless man committed suicide by lying  on the asphalt under a parked box truck as the driver was unaware he was there as he started moving and ran over him.

In Harlem, two boys were shot in the back and head inside a fried chicken restaurant while they were eating dinner.

Also in Harlem , a man got into a shootout with cops at his apartment when they showed up to arrest him on a warrant for an assault he committed on his girlfriend and kidnapped their child on the street in the late spring. Then the man committed suicide by blowing his brains out during a three hour standoff with the cops.

Again in Harlem, a belligerent reprobate opened an emergency window on a city bus and climbed out of it while two passengers held onto him since the bus was still moving. The reprobate then bit and spat on a mans hand who was holding him and spat on the other man as they were preventing the jerk from hurting himself.  When the bus stopped, the reprobate spat on the other man who reacted by pushing him out along with his shopping bags. The reprobate then built up a wad of saliva and snot in his mouth and wouldn’t leave until he spat on him again.

And again in Harlem, a 3-year-old boy fell out of a third floor apartment window and died through a crevice covered with cardboard that was taped next to an air conditioner when he playing on his bed.

And again in Harlem, a gang of four young men chased a 14-year-old boy down the street and into a city bus and then one of them shot at him twice, grazing his head and the bus driver on his hand.

And again in Harlem, an off-duty C.O. beat up his girlfriend in a domestic dispute at his apartment.

And again in Harlem, a 17-year-old boy got shot to death from a point blank blast to his chest when he came out of a McDonalds.

And again in Harlem, an infamous drug lord and FBI informant got shot to death while sitting in his pickup truck as he was dumping drugs out of his window thinking the cops were on his tail but it ultimately turned out to be rivals looking for revenge for a gangland murder of a fellow drug dealer and best friend 32 years ago. The dead snitch was also responsible for 12 other killings.

Also in East Harlem, a man crashed into a stone column while speeding on the exit ramp coming off the FDR Drive.

Again in East Harlem, an off-duty firefighter crashed his car into a parked vehicle while driving drunk.

And again in East Harlem, a man got killed while riding a citibike when he got hit by a car driven by a man with a suspended license.

And again in East Harlem, a man shot another man to death under a building scaffolding in the dead of night.

And again in East Harlem, a man known to be a nuisance in the area hassled a deli worker to give him store credit for loosies and threatened to shoot him when he got rejected. Then he went on a rampage and banged on the deli’s windows, which provoked the deli worker, who came out with a golf club, and his co-worker to chase him away. But the man remained and got into a tussle with the deli worker, who swung the club at him and missed him and then the man stabbed him to death.

In Midtown, a man bumped into a woman while riding his bike on the sidewalk and called her a xenophobic slur.

Also in Midtown, hundreds of people told Mayor de Blasio to go fuck himself and called him an asshole as he was marching in the Columbus Day Parade with his minion staffers, who collectively clapped their hands and cheered the mayor so his ears wouldn’t hear and his brain wouldn’t register the derision and loathing from his constituents who are sick of his big ugly face.

Again in Midtown, a man running to be mayor of New York City ran into ongoing traffic against the red light and got hit by a taxi cab and broke his arm.

And again in Midtown, a man got caught stealing baquettes by a pregnant worker from a high end chain bakery but escaped after he punched her and knocked her to the floor.

Also in the Upper West Side, a man riding a citibike on the expressway got killed when an unlicensed driver hit him with his car.

Again in the Upper West Side, three teenage boys accosted an 82-year-old woman inside a movie theater and then stole her purse. The hooligans also robbed another woman’s purse who saw the crime go down and robbed a man’s bookbag on the way out. If anything, since they were allowed inside the building, at least they were vaccinated.

And again in the Upper West Side, a 71-year-old man caught a stray bullet in the leg from gangbangers engaging in a shootout nearby an elementary school. Three suspects hopped in a car and fled the crime scene.

In the Upper East Side at the 63rd St./Lexington Ave. Station, a 16-year-old girl climbed down onto the trackbed and decided to commute by foot to Queens by going through the subway tunnel. The girl was met by cops at the 21 st./Queensbridge Station who removed her from the tracks.

Also in the Upper East Side, a super freaky woman with a microphone ambushed Mayor-elect Eric Adams on the sidewalk as he was walking to a campaign stump with his powerful elected Democrat Party allies and then she disrupted their booster rally by asking Adams if he’s a dirty cop.

Then the hilarious woman curses out fauxgressive council crony Ydanis Rodriguez and a security guard for getting in her way.

This is all you need to know about how they all felt about her presence. You can’t be afraid of a woman with powder on her tits.

Adams interrupted

In Washington Heights, a man got shot to death during a drug deal gone bad in front of an apartment building.

Also in Washington Heights, a man attacked a woman napping on a park bench and ripped off her clothes and then attacked another woman nine days later at the same park and tried to rip her clothes off at knifepoint but the woman fought back and ran.

Again in Washington Heights, a 7-year-old boy died in a fire inside an illegal conversion basement apartment that was caused by a faulty power strip. The blaze also left his grandmother, father and two other relatives who lived there homeless.

In NoMad, cops on patrol caught three men suspected of pulling off high end in a black Benz with tinted windows by a restaurant, and when two patrol cars cornered them the driver sped down the sidewalk and nearly ran over dozens of people milling in front of a restaurant, compelling one of the cops to shoot at the vehicle and blowing out the windows and windshield. Two of the thieves then abandoned the fancy car and ran, but the cops were able to catch and arrest one of them trying to escape. The perp is currently imprisoned on a weapons possession charge and $50,000 bail.

The NYPD is linking these gunpoint heists to one gang and estimate that over $4,000,000 in jewels have been plundered in the last 3 months in 3 of the 5 boroughs. A most recent one was days earlier in Tribeca, two men ambushed a diamond merchant by his car after he walked out of a posh barsteraunt and held him up at gunpoint and robbed $150,000 of jewels and ran away with them.

In the East Village, a gang three young men, one of whom was 14, beat down a man and stabbed him multiple times on the pavement and stole his scooter.

Also in the East Village, a man grabbed a 12-year-old girl’s crotch on a city bus and then she got off at the next stop.

Again in the East Village, a man stalked a disabled 80-year-old man to his apartment building and then held him up with a box cutter inside the elevator and robbed 60  bucks off him.

In Little Italy and the Lower East Side, a gangbanger went apeshit on random people on the streets; first he threatened a woman with a broken bottle at a cafe, then he snatched two butcher knives from a restaurant and used them to threaten random people including an elderly couple who were in his path. When the cops showed up and caught up to the lunatic, they tazed him multiple times but they had zero effect on him and then he broke north with the cops in pursuit while he was still wielding the knives and they tazed him again and shot at him but still couldn’t take him down until they finally trapped the skell and tazed him a few more times and cuffed him. Maybe it’s time to throw former commissioner William Bratton’s weak ass tazers in a garbage incinerator.

In Stuyvesant Town, a grown ass man got into an argument an 11-year-old girl and then socked her in the face and pulled her hair and then began to choke her and then punched a 15-year-old boy who tried to intervene after she and a bunch of kids were hassling him and a friend of his passing by them while walking their dogs.. The hipster strangler worked with a non-profit organization that was dedicated for helping troubled kids and young adults. He also was a board member although the NPO is claiming he never had such a position despite his name saying such on their website.

In the Lower East Side, a man walked toward a group of men on a street corner and shot a 16-year-old gangbanger to death point blank at his face and wounded another man on the knee in a gang-related attack. A man and his girlfriend fleeing the scene of the crime tried to take shelter in a nearby cineplex but was refused entry until they showed vaccine passports. The victim was scheduled to appear in court for an armed robbery offense and was previously charged with vandalizing a teachers car when he was 13 and also multiple muggings of Asian people and had a murder case against him that got sealed in the last few years of his short life.

Also in the Lower East Side, a man taking a break sitting on a park bench after midnight after delivering food for an app-food service company got accosted by a stranger who sat down next to him and demanded he give him his ebike. Then the lowlife slashed him in the face and stabbed him in the gut and rode away with it, as the worker bled out on the sidewalk trying to catch him and then died hours later from his wounds. The victim recently bought that ebike a month earlier.

Again in the Lower East Side, a manplowed a NYPD sergeant with his motorcycle when he hit a barricade she was standing behind as she ordered him to stop at a checkpoint by the Williamsburg Bridge. The perp was tripping balls and didn’t have a license.

In Greenwich Village, a man broke into cellphone store, four restaurants and a pet store and robbed cellphones, ipads and laptop computers worth totaling over $10,000 and $1,100 in cash in a 7 day crime spree.

In Union Square, demonstrators marching in a protest against The Blaz’s fascist extortion vaccine mandate stopped by a testing site and knocked over the table and the canopy and dragged it on the sidewalk.

Also in Union Square, a man shot a man in the leg in the subway on the NRQV platform during the start of the evening rush hour after he demanded his cellphone and his victim wouldn’t comply. The NYPD transit chief actually said the victim should have gave up his property while spinning the act of gun violence occurring on a crowded heavily used subway station as a rarity and making a ludicrously false claim that the subway is safer than ever.

The perp held up another bank in Chelsea the next day but got caught and arrested by cops when he tried to take the 1 train at the 28th St. Station (but were the cops wearing masks??) and was caught with three guns in his backpack. Following his arrest, it was found that he robbed a bank at gunpoint and made off with $1,100 in Chinatown before he took the train to Union Square and stuck up a man ordering food inside a deli and robbed him of 45 bucks the day before in Midtown. The perp tried to preserve what little self-respect he had by cursing out the prosecutor and the judge during his arraignment.

In Downtown Manhattan, a man with 136 prior arrests that was about to be transferred to Rikers Island attempted suicide by trying to hang himself in a holding cell at the central booking jail in the criminal court building. He still died from his injuries.

Wonder why he would decide to snuff it?

When pressed about the continuing dystopian ultraviolence and uninhabitable environment at Rikers after photos were finally published of the deplorable conditions at the few facilities left on the island and a  new expose of women C.O.’s getting sexually assaulted by prisoners, The Blaz naturally blew them off with non sequitor talking points, deflecting his responsibility for the disintegration of order and humanity of the island prison complex, even though his idea to close it for good has turned the jails into modern day medieval dungeons; illustrating once again that he doesn’t like to be reminded of things he already knows.

Also in Downtown Manhattan, a man was found dead lying on top of a wrought iron fence like a wet blanket at a park near NYPD headquarters. The man died overdosing on smack, which follows Governor Kathy Hochul decriminalizing the possession of syringes. 

Again in Downtown Manhattan, a man was found dead on a bench by a pier at tourist attraction South Street Seaport.

In Chelsea, a man smashed the windshields and windows of cars with a long piece of wood and proceeded to walk to NoMad to cause more damage when three men who witnessed his violent vandalism followed him and cornered him in front of an office building and one of them snatched the blunt object from his hand and then cops arrived to the scene and collared him.

Also in Chelsea, a man got caught shoplifting a robot vacuum cleaner by security guards inside a home department store and then they escorted him out after he stuck a knife up at them.

Again in Chelsea, a man sneaked into the basement of a Mickey D’s and stole wallets belonging to the workers, then he used their credit cards to buy lunch and dinner at the same place he robbed.

And again in Chelsea at the 28th St. Station, a man walked up to another man and asked him a bizarre question and then cracked a bottle over his head.

And again in Chelsea, a pro soccer player and his friend sexually harassed a woman on the dance floor at a rooftop party at a fancy hotel and then they both beat down a man and cracked a bottle over his head when he tried to defend her. The horndog athlete was charged in a similar incident with another friend of his in Australia 3 years earlier.

In Kips Bay, a man shoplifted a load of electronic and pharmacy products and grub in two duffel bags from a chain dept. store and then he flashed a box cutter to security guards and easily waltzed out the door.

Also in Kips Bay, a man lifted a wallet out of an 89-year-old man’s pocket while he was shopping at a supermarket, then he used one of the credit cards to spend $1,200 on shit. The crook got busted for stealing a wallet back in August despite still being on parole and despite his recidivism and recent arrest, the judge released him on his own recognizance.

In Noho at the 8th St. Station, a man hectored two cops patrolling the platform for not wearing face masks, then one of the cops grabbed him and bounced him out through the emergency exit door.

In the Financial District, the Department of Homeless Services run by townhouse owning Windsor Terrace resident Stephen Banks sent 5 registered pedophiles to shelter at a hotel near four grade and pre-k schools.

Also on the Williamsburg Bridge, a man riding an bike stabbed another man on a skateboard in the chest after they got into an argument on the bike path, then the perp got off the bridge and rode his bike to a park and stabbed another man. The same park where a lowlife stabbed an app-food delivery man to death for his e-bike.

In Hunts Point, a 13-year-old boy got shot on a basketball court in the middle of the game in broad daylight by another 13-year-old boy over a feud they got into while dissing each other on a social media platform. The young gunslinger walked away as a friend of his followed on a bike.

The suspect, known as “Chulo,” fired a shot into the knee of the teen victim who was playing basketball at the Hunts Point Playground.

The boy was involved in menacing anti-social behavior with gangs before he sought vengeance against his snapchat foe. The mother of the problematic child  turned him in to face charges of attempted murderThe mother of the victim demands why the NYPD cannot prevent guns that are easily getting into the hands of inner-city kids. 

Also in Hunts Point, an inmate attacked two C.O.’s who were trying to remove him from a housing area in the barge prison and then other inmates intervened and all of them savagely beat them down with tables and chairs. Prison violence has doubled in the last year since the city started depleting C.O personnel, leading to more attacks against C,O,’s, and more use of force against prisoners. Slashings and stabbings among inmates have also doubled.

The federal monitor also revealed non-existent record keeping by the center’s management staff. Like Rikers Island, here’s another case of systemic rot being neglected by a city agency, this time by Mayor de Blasio’s Departments of Social and Administrative Children’s Services.

In Foxhurst, two men walking past a man in a red jacket on the sidewalk both pull out guns and shoot him in broad daylight.

And again in Bushwick at the Wilson Ave. Station, a man snatched a phone off commuter on the L train and got chased down and caught by a cop on the street.

It wasn’t reported if the crook’s mark was napping during the larceny, but a chunk of robberies on the subway was because the mark was dozing off at the time. Meanwhile, robberies and other felonious violent crimes have gone up since summer ended and current Mayor de Blasio sees absolutely nothing urgent about these trends.

In Sunset Park, a fire engulfed a rowhouse apartment building that caused injuries and homelessness to 16 residents.

Also in Sunset Park, inhumane conditions resurface again for inmates at the Metropolitan Detention Center with complaints about shitty food, broken toilets, no electricity and C.O. under staffing. Here’s hoping Jeffery Epstein’s platonic girlfriend is O.K.

Again in Sunset Park, two men got ambushed by a gang of four men who jumped out of van and beat them to the pavement with sticks and bats and made off with their wallets and a bicycle. Making the two victims statistics of the rise of over a thousand felony assaults from last year.

And again in Sunset Park, a man driving a Benz ran the red and crashed into another car and killed the driver. Then he and his passenger ditched the vehicle and ran only to get caught by the cops in pursuit of them.

And again in Sunset Park, a man got shot to death in the lobby of the apartment building where he lived and where he survived getting shot twice at the same spot back in June. Both attacks were gang-related.

In Fort Greene, a man on a bike rode up to a 65-year-old woman on the sidewalk and got off punched her in the face and dragged her on the pavement while trying to steal her purse that contained money she earned turning in recyclables at the supermarket, but gave up when she persisted his attempt to rob her and he rode away on his bicycle.

Cops wrongly arrested a man who they thought was involved in the savage mugging.

And again in Fort Greene, a man who murdered another man from New Rochelle got into a shootout with cops who left their jurisdiction in Westchester and pursued him to a NYCHA building he tried to hide in.

In East Flatbush, two men held up a man and a woman at gunpoint in an attempted robbery but the man was and NYC Parks cop who was armed and both men engaged in a shootout.

In Ocean Hill, a man wanted for an assault on a woman months ago and armed with a gun ran away from the cops and hid inside a school where an after-school event was going on with hundreds of kids gathered in the auditorium. He probably should have climbed a tree and stayed there for about a week.

In Bensonhurst, an off-duty cop broke into her ex-girlfriend’s apartment and shot and wounded her in the torso and murdered her new girlfriend by shooting her in the chest multiple times when she saw them walk in together. The killer was hoping to rekindle her relationship with her ex and was crashing at her apartment occasionally after their split.

In Downtown Brooklyn, a man shot at another man while he was driving his SUV, hitting him in the shoulder and causing him to crash into a parked car.

Also in Downtown Brooklyn, cops caught two groups of men fighting in front of a chain chicken fast food restaurant and then caught one of the men getting into his car and he made a sharp U-turn before he fled the area as cops shot at him trying to stop him

Again in Downtown Brooklyn, a man who murdered another man from New Rochelle got into a shootout with cops who left their jurisdiction and pursued him.

And again in Downtown Brooklyn, an anti-vaccine mandate protest for Kyrie Irving attended by thousands of people at Barclays Center escalated when demonstrators knocked down the barricades and attempted to get into the arena.

In Midwood, a man walked up to a group of four men loitering in front of a deli and shot all of them, hitting three of them on their legs and one of them in the arm in broad daylight and near a grade school and pre-k schools.

Also in Midwood, two high school students got into an argument at their school and decided to take their beef outside, so they took their guns out of their lockers and got into a gang-related shootout in front of their high school. Cops caught the younger gangbanger at an apartment building he tried to hide in and found his ghost gun in a stairwell. The young perp had two prior gun arrests earlier this year during Spring. Both students stored their guns in their lockers because the school doesn’t have metal detectors and their safety officer personnel was slashed in half like every other school in the city.

In Brighton Beach, a man stabbed another man to death on a street corner in the early morning darkness.

Also in Brighton Beach, a woman socked a 17-year-old girl in the head with a cardboard box and called her a xenophobic slur.

Queens

In Brookville, a man who beat up his girlfriend on the street and threatened his mother evaded police who arrived to arrest him on a warrant for assault by crawling out the window of his mother’s house and then he climbed up and occupied a tree in front of it,  where he remained for 52 hours because he didn’t want to go back to Rikers Island. The cops coaxed the man to come down by offering the man a banana. Bet they thought that was mildly amusing.

During the nearly 3 day ordeal, the NYPD deployed hundreds of cops to force him down but then coaxed the man to come down by offering the man a banana (bet they thought that was mildly amusing). But a violence interruptor organization had more success and managed to persuade the mentally disturbed man to come down.

An area resident who just happens to be a NYPD chaplain was not only utterly taken aback at the size of the NYPD’s presence and the  excessive and ludicrous resources they had to take down one man from a tree (like using drones), but also that they didn’t have a functioning unit to deal with mentally disturbed people.

Queens Chronicle:

“I’m a neighbor,” Perry, who said police turned the neighborhood upside down for three days, told the Chronicle Monday. “There was noise, banging and floodlights … if they would have called the crisis prevention program, it would never have led up to this.”

Thomas was traumatized from his time on Rikers, according to Perry. Instead of a crisis management team, nearly 50 officers were on the scene and tried to get Thomas out of the tree by bribing him with food, using bright floodlights, flying drones and banging on some drums.

“There was noise and banging and floodlights and that was never the goal,” said Perry, who has known Thomas for six years. “The goal was to get him treatment … and that could have been resolved instead of all that manpower.”

Perry, who also happens to be an NYPD chaplain, suggested to police on Oct. 6, that they should reach out to a mental health crisis prevention team, but she said her recommendation was ignored.

“If they had called them from the beginning it would never had led up to this and now he is publicly humiliated and our neighborhood is now a target for a man that was in a tree,” said Perry. “People are still coming here to take pictures and it’s embarrassing.”

In Jamaica, a man got shot to death on the sidewalk in a gang-related attack in front of a house in broad daylight.

Also in Jamaica, a 12-year-old boy stabbed another 12-year-old boy at a school playground.

In Edgemere, an argument between a man and two other man at a gas station escalated when the man pulled out a gun shot at them, blasting one man in the chest and hitting the other man in four places as they tried to flee.  He also hit a bystander in the ankle with a stray bullet.

In South Ozone Park, a man got killed when a speeding car crashed into him from behind on the highway as he was illegally riding his e-bike on the middle lane. The five men in the car abandoned the vehicle and ran away.

Also in South Ozone Park, a man got caught shoplifting a necklace in a store by it’s manager and then he slashed him in the neck and chest when he tried to stop him from fleeing.

Again in South Ozone Park, a man pickpocketed two wallets from a man on a city bus and from another man inside a bodega.

And again in South Ozone Park, a dice game on the sidewalk led to an argument that escalated into a shootout between two men, one of them wound up getting killed.

And again in South Ozone Park, a man walking on the highway got killed when an SUV ran him over. The driver abandoned the vehicle in a nearby location.

In Ozone Park, a man sneaked up behind a 78-year-old woman and grabbed her ass while she was unloading groceries from her car and then he flashed his choad at her and walked away.

Also in Ozone Park, two well decorated cops from the 106th Precinct ran a prostitution ring with two call girls for a month, but it was actually an internal affairs investigation involving two female undercover investigators.

In Corona, a man pushed a 10-year-old girl off her bike and and stole her cellphone and rode away on her bike. This skell must have quite a daily itinerary.

https://qns.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Photo-2.jpg

In Astoria, a man sneaked into a church through a basement entrance and stole 800 bucks from a collection box.

Also in Astoria, a dead man’s body was found floating in the river under the Hell’s Gate Bridge at the park.

Again in Astoria, a homeless woman sneaked up behind a 16-year-old girl eating outside of a restaurant and wrapped her hands around her throat then walked away.

Also in Long Island City, a man shot another man to death to settle an argument by the Queensbridge houses.

In Jackson Heights at the 74th Ave./Roosevelt Ave. Station, a man got slashed in the face during a tussle with two men on the E train and a man intervened by flashing a gun at the thugs to get them to stop. A potential Bernie Goetz incident is imminent.

In Flushing, a man got killed when he crashed his motorcycle into a car on an intersection. The dead man was recently released from prison after serving time stabbing a man to death 30 years ago.

Also in Flushing, a man was found dead in the back lot of row of stores with his face slashed.

Again in Flushing, a rapper got collared by the feds right when his set was about to start at a hip hop festival at Citifield for running a national drug ring trafficking and selling blow, smack and fentanyl in two states.

In Woodside at the 69th Ave. Station, a man and a woman menaced a 69-year-old woman and demanded her purse, then one of them cut the strap off with a knife and snatched it while cutting her arm during the mugging.

In East Elmhurst, a junkyard owner lets his junkyard dogs run roughshod at a cemetery next door where they go through a hole in the fence that was cut by him. Even when there are people mourning for their loved ones at their burials. The junkyard has made a concerted effort to annex the cemetery’s property for years.

Also in East Elmhurst, a man stabbed a woman inside a nite club. Where’s the night mayor at?

Again in East Elmhurst, a man killed himself when he crashed into an iron fence while riding an e-scooter.

In Rosedale, a man broke into a house and shot a 14-year-old boy in the back twice.

In Bayside, a man was found dead in a lake at a park after being reported missing for a week.

Also in Bayside, a social media account revealed fourteen brawls and rumbles between students at inside and outside of the same high school. Looks like The Blaz and Chancellor Meisha Porter’s gold standard school reopening has regressed into a knuckle standard.

In Queens Village, a 16-year-old boy got caught possessing a gun when it fell out of his pocket during a fight with another student inside a classroom. Looks like The Blaz and Porter’s gold standard for schools has also regressed into a lead standard.

In Willets Point, the FDNY raided a warehouse belonging to a welding suppler and confiscated over 500 cylinders of propane tanks (no propane accessories?). It’s a safe bet that this supplier had orders for these from restaurants with open street shanties to be used for autumn and the coming winter but was suddenly in a bind when the stupid fucking idiot mayor The Blaz signed a law banning the use of them a few days earlier and had nowhere else to store them.

In Kew Gardens at the Queens County Courthouse building, a man already imprisoned for the murder of a man at a nite club in Flushing got indicted for the first shooting homicide of the year on New Years Day of a 19-year-old man in front of a hotel located across the street from the court building and around the corner from the D.A.’s office.

In Forest Hills, an off-duty school teacher gave her mother a fat lip during a fight at her house.

On Rikers Island, nine men Governor Kathy Hochul released prematurely from their sentences in order to ameliorate the violence inside the jails returned to their cells after they committed more crimes, notably gun possession and muggings, to add to their career of recidivism.

Again on Rikers Island, a C.O. got caught and suspended after sneaking a razor blade to an inmate.

And again on Rikers Island, an inmate who was sentenced for getting into a standoff with cops walked out of a prison facility after administrative staff lost his records. The fugitive was found at a parking lot nearby the next day.

To go along with the astronomical rise in auto theft, the plundering of catalytic converters also has seen a massive increase this year, which is contributing to the rise in carbon emissions from cars.

Staten Island

In New Brighton, a 16-year-old boy fired shots at a house but nobody was home for him to maim or kill.

In Willowbrook, a brawl broke out between three girls and escalated into a rumble with dozens of other students inside a high school, as one safety agent was left alone to deal with the chaos with assistance by a dean who recovered a knife carried by a 13-year-old girl, thanks to the understaffing issue caused by current mayor de Blasio’s extortion driven vaccine mandate and the “woke” driven policies written by the fauxgressive city council cronies to deplete the NYPD safety officer personnel from the schools.

The Blowback Blight And Anarchy From NYC’s Open Restaurants Law

New York City, New York

COVID-19’s impact on New York City has no doubt fundamentally changed the environment, landscape and cuture of this city. It’s why this nation of ours had to suddenly print trillions of dollars to keep it resembling an imitation of normal to get money in people’s pockets and keep most businesses solvent where before we used to print it to pay for regime change wars and to assure the biggest banks remain too big to fail. It was basically a big class action settlement for government malpractice of our leaders response to the virus (and clearly the manufacturing of it thanks to Dr. Anthony Fauci).  And when the stimulus cash arrived to NYC, one of the first things that got fed socialist moneyed resuscitation was to the restaurant industry.

Since eating indoors was still a major risk of contagion for months on end last year, City Council and Mayor de Blasio addressed the existential threat the virus had on the dining and drinking industry and started the Open Restaurants initiative which lifted restrictions and eased regulations for restaurants to build sheds on the street curbs so patrons can come back and dine again outside of their establishments. Despite usurping parking spaces from residents, these businesses were able to recoup some losses and were able to make money again. The city also integrated this program with the Open Streets initiative to “re-imagine” public streets initially centered on cycling and pedestrian commuting by evolving them to plazas with the intent to foster community activity and keeping vehicular traffic out (both initiatives annoyingly prodded by bike zealot/car abolitionist lobby Transportation Alternatives). With the sheds on the asphalt, restaurants were able to extend their businesses by placing tables on the street, enabling to serve more customers. At the time it was logical and necessary.

Even though this was enacted for emergency purposes to keep businesses thriving in a still near dead city (with more prodding from agent of the city TransAlt weaponizing this program to banish cars)  the City Council Cronies and The Blaz decided to make restaurant outdoor sheds permanent, which was buoyed by a bill written by the State Senate and signed by Mario’s Son Governor Cuomo. Now even though restaurants are under the regulatory purview of the Department of Health, the Blaz left the responsibility of monitoring the street sheds under the Department Of Buildings. If this isn’t bizarre enough, the Department of Transportation seems are wholly left out of this even though the streets are officially under their purview. And as expected with the Blaz and the Council Cronies, they conjure these laws without considering the ramifications of them as some restaurants and even non-food related establishments opportunistically took advantage of the bureaucratic fugazi of  NYC’s Open Restaurants and Streets policy.

This egregiousness came to prominence when a member of community group L.E.S. dwellers encountered a curbside shed going through a re-imagining development in process in the East Village, catching the restaurant adding a second level to their shed  parallel with first floor apartment windows above the establishment and close enough to touch the branches on the tree above.

What the actual fuck indeed, what’s even more insane is that this restaurant just recently put up their normal ground floor shed, or to be more apt shanty, even though indoor dining was permitted after the city officially opened up at the beginning of July.

Surprisingly this shanty got an immediate stop work order a day after it went viral, even warranting a faux outrage tweet by Council Crony Margaret Chin, even though her vote enabled these owners to build their leisure duplex. But this being NYC, there are others that are able to get away with flouting the rules with impunity, even though because of the emergency edict placed on open restaurants that gives them a pandemic loophole to build bigger and denser on public streets there practically aren’t any rules anymore.

Popular youtube personality computer repair guru and small business owner Louis Grossman found some more shanties while just strolling around town where he works and one of them had doors like in a saloon, as he pointed out the distinctions between a shed that was safe for pandemic dining and ones that were basically houses on the street with no proper circulation, which defeats the purpose of stopping the spread of COVID. Then he encountered probably the biggest freak violator of all, an open restaurant with an air conditioner.

If there is anything positive to say about this is that it looks more like a bungalow than a shanty with all the windows installed. But it still looks like a cabin because they didn’t even bother painting it and it’s sure as fuck not definitely not safe from the delta variant if people are dining there on a hot muggy afternoon or balmy evening since the contagion is trapped as people are sharing microbes while eating, drinking and talking in close proximity.

Watching that video would give the impression that it’s probably the tipping point or nadir of the open restaurant phenomenon and that the D.O.B. will stop by and tell the proprietor to take it down but you’d be wrong.  Because these AC equipped cabins have set off an open restaurant land grab wave.

Documented by the lifestyle news website Eater, many high end dining establishments in high destination areas in Manhattan seized the opportunity given to them and set up AC’s for their own shanties,as well as other fixtures and locking doors that resemble modern day cabins or even Fedders apartment buildings. But absolutely nothing can compare to what two restaurants did on the same block in the small enclave known as Korea Town in Midtown nestled between Madison Ave and Herald Square, for these open restaurant structures are not mere shanties, they are practically street curb condominiums. Here’s a place called Osamil…

Really don’t get why the windows are so small, but they apparently slide open, those doors look like they belong in a horse’s stable. But one things for sure, they made that solar powered parking meter absolutely useless.

Mosey on down the block and we probably have the city’s most egregious and heinous public street space monopolizer restaurant indoor shanty claimed by Take 31, which takes the city’s re-imagining shock doctrine open restaurants policy to another level.

Look at these doors and windows, how can you possibly breath let alone spread the delta variant…

In case there is any wonder how these 4 A.C.’s are being powered, get a load of the electrical hookup. Remember, the Department Of Buildings is in charge of regulating these things, doubtful if you can get away with this if you hooked up something similar from your house to your garage.

Apparently when they were building this aesthetics wasn’t even on the agenda or even architecture or carpentry, but making this shitpost into a veritable ice box was. They equipped this with FOUR HVAC units. Apparently this was made for two establishments judging by the outhouse that’s built in front of a small restaurant next door.

If the sign demanding proof of vaccination wasn’t ludicrous enough considering there isn’t one pasted on the elongated outhouse on the street, what’s even more deranged is that the shanty is just under 10 feet across a building under development with scaffolding and bollards on the street, making it very treacherous for driving and cycling commuting.

Since the current mayor de Blasio and the City Council cronies joined in solidarity to legitimize these shanties under the rubric of safety because of COVID and the delta variant and by extracting the authority of the Department of Transportation from regulating these , it had to come at the expense of the safety of vehicular, cycling and walking commuters and a brazen example of the second expense lies on Bleecker St. in Noho.

Despite the presence of a bike lane, the proprietors of this open restaurant shanty blocked half of it, which if a regular citizen driver or the NYPD did this it would get photographed and pilloried by bike zealot social media accounts and would get a $200 citation by a traffic constable in real life.

Although the barricades set up makes it city designated open street designed to ban cars, it doesn’t prevent drivers from accessing the open restaurant area turning from Mulberry St., making riding pass this shitpost set up a perilous risk.

And the thing that’s remarkable about bike propagandists like StreetsBlog NYC praising open restaurants to the skies is that even when they are not violating traffic laws, the roads still don’t have sufficient space to ride a bike by them and makes driving more perilous despite the precautions taken by restaurant owners to make their structures more visible (like a house on the street wouldn’t already do that)

Of course can’t leave out the frustrations of the pedestrian, with insufficient walking space as these shanties make commuting by them a human gauntlet with people milling around and waiters and busboys going back and forth serving people. Ultimately forcing pedestrians with no choice to walk in the streets in the driving and bike lanes.

Surely pedestrian gridlock is a daily issue by this restaurant/bar/nite club in South Richmond Hill that actually built a tunnel by their establishment.

And since they already have an LED display sign, they can probably scan EZ passes to go through it. Although prospective burglars sure will appreciate the easy lift provided by the roof inches away from the apartment in the mixed use building.

While this outdoor dining set up one a mile west is more sad than egregious, but still a brazen hazard that has the potential to cause a blazing one.

It can’t be stressed hard enough what damage this shanty is going to do if one of this restaurants neighbors houses goes on fire, or even their own business (unless that hole was put there for that reason) considering an incident where a mixed-use building got torched on Bleecker St. because the FDNY couldn’t get around a shanty in front of the restaurant where the fire started on the ground floor. And never mind how flammable this and every other wooden shanty in NYC is vulnerable to any random kindling or arson attempt.

But what makes this restaurant more sad about it’s flaunting of fire codes is that it doesn’t have much of a choice with Bill de Blasio’s utterly fascist and unscientific vaccine mandate about to be unleashed on city establishments and venues, where the only way to keep non-vaccinated residents as customers is to keep them outside.

And if there is a shanty that’s a tinderbox waiting to explode, it’s got to be the one belonging to celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck’s five star Michelen steakhouse restaurant in Murray Hill. A set up so ostentatious it’s the Hamptons Mansion of open restaurant shanties in NYC.

To be fair, maybe Wolfie’s shanty resembles more like a Super 8 motel going by all these doors and key locks.

Looks like somebody tried to pick this one. Gotta admit that this shanty looks more safer and pleasing than the city’s homeless shelters.

What makes this the most special of open restaurant shanties is that it’s built on a steep incline with traffic going south. which means there are probably steps inside there. While it doesn’t have energy sucking HVAC’s it does appear to have what looks like an air purifier releasing whatever delta variant strains the customers are dispensing inside and releasing the contagion into the ether and onto the public. Which makes a mockery of the vaccine mandate rules by conveying this as a safe outdoor venue for microbe aerosol dispensing dining and nightlife leisure activities.

Besides the obvious haste to put these curbside bungalows up in order to opportunistically take advantage of the City Council and current Mayor’s Open Restaurant law, judging by the the exposed wood paneled wall entirely flushed against the 33rd St. Station stairwell, what’s curious is how to patrons get served inside that shanty?

Which means waitstaff and bussers have to maneuver through passerby with orders for the clientele and to clean up after them, causing more pedestrian gridlock on the sidewalk and from commuters exiting and entering the stairwell at the downtown staircase of the 33rd St. Station.

And get a load of this cable going into the restaurant. It’s only about 7 1/2 feet off the ground. It really doesn’t matter whether its a five star joint, these shanties are cheap and ugly and still vulnerable to cause contagion spread because of the indoor environment in addition to being a blatant electrical fire hazard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ironic thing about these shanties which purport to bring people and vibrancy back to city streets and also add a touch of European savoir faire while keeping more cars off the street in order to improve the environment, it’s ultimately done the exact opposite and has brought down the quality of life and environment in neighborhoods. Besides the horrendous site of mountains of garbage piled up against the structures and inside them and providing convenient shelter for a new generation of rats to feed and breed in them, these filthy shanties have brought forward a disturbing new trend of high end blight of rampant graffiti wholly comparable but more artless than the aerosol paint bombings of subway trains in the Bad Old Days in the 70’s-80’s. Which perfectly falls in line with the New Bad Days era of the last 5 years.

It’s really a wonder why anyone would even eat and drink in these shacks, but it’s ok because of emergency pandemic exemptions, the NYC Department Of Health doesn’t bother checking them out either. Which makes those restaurant grade posters on the windows moot since the DOH is not responsible to regulate the shanties because it’s the Department of Buildings role.

Some of these are also zombie shanties from restaurants that went out of business.

Although there are absolutely no rules about the open restaurants, some establishments that took advantage of the idiotic law don’t actually seem to serve food at all. Like the Basquiat gallery here, where there are clearly no restaurants in sight.

And this other artful shanty which is in front of a hookah lounge.

This one has valet parking…

But some of these non-restaurant establishments probably serve liquor, making them able to take advantage of the city’s generous loopholes, like this greenhouse in front of this nite club. Complete with HVAC and door and lock. Also defeating the purpose of preventing virus contagion.

And to think Transportation Alternatives declares that sights like this should be normal as their agitprop allies Streetsblog NYC whinnies about how these are better for the environment than the existence of cars and traffic. This shanty recently developed by a legendary lunchonette in the West Village instantly disproves their theories, which basically turns a tree into a periscope. With some very apt commentary graffiti pointing out the restaurants man made climate violation.

What Transportation Taliban and Bike Blog and their urbanist hives on social media make clear is how unconscious they are about open restaurants/streets and how neoliberal their agenda is because the shanties and barricades act as violent architecture against cars in the hopes to “induce demand” in personal vehicle commuting by frustrating drivers to forsake their cars. All in the hopes for the total banishment of the vehicle.

One thing’s overwhelmingly conclusive about the open streets/open restaurants is that because of the overzealous attention and prioritization to approve the open streets/open restaurants law for permanency, the NYC Council Cronies and de Blasio did this with absolutely no consideration for the residents at all and waited over a month to even announce any regulations for them, which according to the mayor’s office you tube channel have broken every rule that is still waiting to be written on the books. Despite all excuses of trying to govern and keep the city’s economy solvent during a pandemic, these unsightly space hogging and citizen obstructing shanties are the result of city planning designed by a kakistrocacy consisting of people disconnected from their constituents and real life.

And they will be literally disconnected in a few months because the idiot mayor and most of the idiot council cronies are term limited and won’t be around to see this open restaurants fugazi exacerbate. Thanks to the leniency and the steady presence of the more infectious delta variant, these restaurants, especially the high end expensive restaurants, will only build bigger and bigger.

Which will lead to perilous conditions for all commuters on wheels and foot, more eyesore blight, filth, garbage and rats on the streets. As long as the pandemic continues and continues to get exploited by the ruling class and the hospitality industry, the blowback and anarchy, like the shanties, will build bigger and badder and stinkier and fuglier.

 

 

 

 

 

NYC’s Feckless Officials Finally Help NYC’s Homeless Services…Guards

AMNY

With homelessness one of the most pressing issues in the 2021 mayoral race, it’s more important than ever that those on the street have somewhere safe to sleep. Oftentimes, that means a non-profit shelter. Yet many of the private security officers who work at these shelters are paid so little they can barely afford health insurance  – and are even in danger of homelessness themselves.

Now the New York City Council and Mayor Bill DeBlasio are moving to change this, committing 40.5 million dollars to ensure that these essential workers are paid fair, livable wages.

“For over 4,000 working families – their lives are going to change, this year,” said Mayor DeBlasio at a press conference this afternoon. A group of working people, each wearing union shirts, stood behind him. “You can’t ask someone to help solve one of the most challenging problems in society, but not give them enough to put food on their tables, or pay their rent, or take care of their families.” 

His description was borne out by a number of speakers. Homeless shelters can be rife with violence; yet many security officers are paid minimum wage, barely enough to sustain an individual, let alone a family.  “We cannot afford to live in the city we work,” said Shaquille Sheppard, a private shelter security officer who himself grew up in-and-out of shelters. “Private security jobs are poverty jobs.” Kyle Bragg, president of Local 32BJ, a chapter of the Service Employees International Union, substantiated this, saying that, “while helping the City’s most vulnerable, many of these workers struggle to afford things themselves,” and, “may even find themselves homeless.” 

 

According to a recent survey, shelter security workers – over 90% of whom are people of color – are more than four times as likely to be homeless or uninsured than the average New Yorker. At the same time, some 48% of those surveyed said they are inadequately trained. In somewhere as dangerous as a homeless shelter, this can mean the difference between life and death. That these shelters cannot even sustain the people they employ – people whose work is essential to the City – is a cruel and vicious irony and one that the pandemic put into even starker relief.

Mayor de Blasio, who promised to end the tale of two cities, and City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and his Democrat majority City Council Cronies waited 8 years to finally do something about the homeless crisis by finally allocate funding for a long overdue wage hike for homeless shelter security guards. Sure there’s nothing wrong with wanting to give the people more money especially when tasked to supervise the city’s notoriously violent and decrepit homeless shelters. But there are a bunch of conflicting problems with this.

First, why haven’t the non-profit providers of these city shelters who are already receiving city funding already gave these security guards the living wages they needed?

Another concern stems from The Blaz’s recent decision to kick all the homeless out of hotels who were sent there from the over-packed shelters to protect them from contracting and spreading COVID19 during the pandemic the last year. All of sudden, the Mayor felt that the time had to come to stop relying on hotels to shelter the destitute because they were not good environments (even though most of these hotels were high end ones in Manhattan and Brooklyn and the homeless people naturally really liked them) and he determined it was safe to put them back into the city’s regular shelters where they could get the health and human services they need (why weren’t these services available at the hotels where they were residing in the last year?). The Blaz also willfully neglected to mention that most of his shelters were still hotels, just in far away enclaves like Eastern and Southeastern Queens and Southeast Brooklyn because his promise to build 90 new shelters in the last 4 years has not been fulfilled.

And it’s clear that he’s chomping at the bit to shuttle the homeless people out of upscale hotels that did no business in 2020 for the mayor’s self-serving recovery for all of us and his hashtag Summer in NYC initiative, which includes vaccine staycation hotel room giveaways to his constituents. It should also be pointed out how Corey Johnson clearly exploited this publicity stunt for a potential ad featuring his anecdote of being homeless himself.

But the biggest problem with this allocation is that it seems to do nothing to help the homeless people but funds the people that police the homeless instead. There’s no guarantee that paying security guards more will ensure safety in these shelters and the hotel shelters.

Besides de Blasio’s tone deaf statement after waiting too long for these once faceless security guards to be able to afford to live in this/your city, his message unsaid about this abominable discrepancy for the displaced and faceless victims of the city’s homeless and housing crises is let them eat pizza.

Bastard.

Update:

I was informed that I made some mistakes about the 32BJ union, they did not donate to or endorsed de Blasio’s quix-idiotic presidential campaign, that was the hotel and hospitality union and 32BJ is a property services union. I apologize for the errors, which I deleted from this post, and also the fact that these security guards had to wait 8 years to be properly compensated.

Her killer, who is also the father of her two children, is still on the loose. The autopsy found that she was murdered from a single strike to her head from a weaponized blunt instrument.

In Woodside, a woman walking home from the supermarket to her apartment at the Woodside Houses got killed by a stray bullet from a shootout between two gangbangers while they were running on the street.

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 South Jamaica, two homeless men living in a hotel homeless shelter got into a brawl at a park across the street, leading to one of them getting stabbed to death and also a security guard from the hotel getting stabbed twice when he tried to stop the fight.

In Jackson Heights, a four alarm fire destroyed a row of 15 small businesses on one block. Some of them weren’t leased or insured. Queens is still burning.

In Howard Beach, a man was found dead from a shot to his chest inside his car at a supermarket parking lot.

In Glendale, a man snatched a bunch of package deliveries that were left by mailboxes inside an apartment building.

In Hollis, a dice game on the street went awry when a man pulled out a gun on his opponent and demanded money from him, then he handed the gun to another man who pulled the trigger and shot the other man to death while he was emptying his pockets. The man who provided the gun is still on the loose.

In Queens Village, a man got murdered from a drive by shooting while sitting in a car with three other men who ditched him as he bled on the street.

Also in Flushing, a man volunteering for  neighborhood watch group assembled because of the rise of biased violence directed at Asian people surveilled two walking on the sidewalk making verbal threats and slurs at other commuters until they entered an office building. Then one of them comes out and slapped the phone out of the man’s hand.

Again in Flushing at the Main St. Station, a xenophobic man yelled at a woman on the 7 train by calling her a slur and blamed her for spreading coronavirus. Then he grabbed her phone while she was using it take his picture

In Whitestone, an off-duty firefighter killed a man with one punch in the back lot of a bar on a street corner where violence happens daily.

In College Point, a man rode his bicycle up to a woman on the sidewalk and grabbed her ass and they he whipped his dick out at her. Then he rode up to another woman and smacked her butt and rode away on the next day.

Also in College Point, a woman was found dead in her house under a pile of garbage in her kitchen. The woman, who worked as a set designer for various TV shows, died eight months earlier and the NYPD didn’t even notice she was there when they went their on a wellness check and removed her pets.

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. Even though he’s supposed to remain in quarantine under captivity for another week.

Again on Rikers Island, two inmates associated with the Bloods got into a brawl inside their cell then they both attacked and beat down a C.O. when he tried to break them up.

And again on Rikers Island, an inmate was found dead with his head jammed inside a handcuff port outside of a clinical room and another inmate committed suicide by hanging himself in his cell with a linen cloth.

And again on Rikers Island, a C.O. got into a fight with two of his supervising officers who were trying to force him to work a third shift at the prison after they shut the cage on him when he was trying to go home.

And again on Rikers Island, 13 inmates from the Bloods engaged in five attacks on 11 C.O.’s in a 7 day span starting with two gangbangers attacked a C.O. inciting a prison riot that led to 4 C.O.’s. 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.

Also in Harlem, a man shot at two men inside a bodega after he accused them of starting at him and when one of them threw a tin dish of food he was eating at him. Then the gunman and his friend rode away on scooters.

Again in Harlem, a 17-year-old boy got slashed in the neck by two men he engaged in an argument with on the street.

And again in Harlem, a man got shot in the ass during a dispute with two other men inside a deli.

And again in Harlem, two men got shot on a street corner and ran to a nearby hospital. One died from getting shot in the chest and the other survived a bullet to his leg.

And again in Harlem, a xenophobic man shoved another man to the pavement then punched his face after yelling a bigoted slur at him

And again in Harlem, cops deployed by the Department of Homeless Services to a shelter building attempted to calm an unruly man down and then he viciously attacked a cop, punching his face multiple times until he was maced by the other cop. The man then took some clothes of his and ran out into the streets while the cop he pummelled has to eat and drink through a straw until his broken jaw heals. Where the fuck is Thrive, Co-Mayor Chirlie?

And again in Harlem, an 8-month-old baby died inside a NYCHA apartment.

And again in Harlem at the 125th Station, a man slashed another man in the face on the 4 train and ran out into the streets.

Also in East Harlem, a man bashed a woman’s head onto a guardrail and stole her phone.

Again in East Harlem, two gang members got shot in the middle of the street.

And again in East Harlem, a man shot another man to death on a street corner,  then he got into a car with another man and fled the scene of the murder. Then they were pursued by the cops who heard the shots nearby and got into a high speed chase with them on the FDR drive. The two men abandoned the car in Midtown and fled on foot. 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. Two children, an elderly man, a fruit stand worker and 3 other people got injured during the melee.

Also in Midtown at the 59th St./Lexington Ave. Station, two men sans shirts and a woman ganged up on a man on the 5 train and one of them slashed him in the head. Then they ran away and took the express train back uptown.

Again in Midtown, a protest held against Mario’s Son Governor Cuomo’s homeless and housing policies as well as demands for his resignation led to four demonstrators getting arrested and reporters being intimidated from photographing the protest from threats and arbitrary unconstitutional orders to stay off the street by de Blasio’s NYPD.

And again in Midtown, a man poured fluid on a woman while she was carrying shopping bags and then yelled at her to go back to China.

And again in Midtown, a pro-Trump march with his supporters walking with a 2024 campaign flag the size of a football got into a brief clash with Antifa protesters leading the cops breaking it up and arresting four people who were caught carrying tools and weapons. A man who threw a bottle of bleach at the cops and then ran away to the Bryant Park station.

And again in Midtown, two men made off with a bag of $8,000 in fresh bills that was left on top an ATM machine by a security guard at a bank.

And again in Midtown, a homeless man stole a bakery van while a 15-year-old boy was sitting inside and drove it on the sidewalk and crashed it into a building scaffold because he thought someone was going to shoot him. During the manic theft, the delivery man wound up breaking his legs after he held onto the door to stop the lunatic.

And again in Midtown, a man got hit with a stray bullet when someone involved in rumble on the street between rival gangs decided to settle it with a gun.

And again in Midtown, a woman threw an Asian woman to the pavement and punched and yelled at her.

And again in Midtown at the 51 St./Lexington Ave. Station, a xenophobic man punched a woman in the face on the 6 train and also called her a slur, blamed her for the pandemic and demanded her to go back to China.

And again in Midtown, a man got held up at gunpoint in front of an office building and robbed of a duffel bag containing $60,000 from a recent “business transaction”

And again in Midtown, a man tried to scale a too big to fail bank building during a protest in front of it and then fell on his ass and broke his pelvis and a can of black spray paint. The injured protester is a small business owner.

And again in Midtown, a man got caught shoplifting in 7/11 by a worker and he punched him in the face and called him a bigoted slur.

In Times Square,  a trash can on a subway mezzanine was set on fire and exploded as a cop was about to take a peek at it and as a woman and her two children passed by.

Also in Times Square, a man beaten and strangled his girlfriend to death inside a hotel homeless shelter after 2 years of abusing her and using her government financial aid to spend lavishly on booze and drugs. The man had 15 prior arrests, his most recent one in February when he beat the shit out of his father while he was sleeping in his bed and then stomped on him with his boots and and evaded arrest even when he kicked in the door of his late girlfriend’s mother’s apartment and wanted to freeload because police couldn’t do anything because she didn’t want him to leave.

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.

In Greenwich Village, an app-hail driver got held up at knife point had his bag containing his wallet robbed and his car partition damaged by a man and a woman he tried to kick out of his car for not wearing masks.

Also in Greenwich Village, a man hassled a cop who was monitoring a protest with profanities and xenophobic slurs.

Again in Greenwich Village, protesters smashed the plexiglass window of a restaurant shanty.

Finally, in only a week since The Blaz re-opened high schools for in person learning, there has been a rise of students having their weapons confiscated.

Watch your steps, kid.

Housing Inequity, Death And Tax Breaks: A Tale Of Two Queens Areas

Astoria Houses

Thanksgiving, the symbolic holiday where all beings partake in communal gratitude and partake in sharing of the bountiful harvest of food and shelter. But on the east and west sides of Queens, it’s a theory that’s as good as dead.

An apartment building at The Astoria Houses are currently without gas and tenants have been without heat and hot water for a month. Despite the typical dragging of responsive service from NYCHA management to restore their utility they pay rent for, elected officials have been comparably unresponsive. This craven indifference continued until it got the attention of PIX News and a visit from streaming independent news channel Status Coup when a charity group were serving trays of hot food on catering tables at the front entrance at the building with the gas outage.

Then a few days later, a non-profit organization Queens Together arrived tagged along by elected officials arrived to bring some charity of their own. District City Councilman Costa Costantidas, House Representative Carolyn Maloney and newly elected Queens Borough President Donovan Richards arrived with bags of food, PPE’s and 48 crockpots for all the tenants deprived of gas services from the city’s biggest slumlord NYCHA, who supplied their vulnerable residents with single burner hot plates for sustenance.

While crockpots are an improvement over the cheap ass hot plates the tenants it still an immensely poor substitute for action that’s expected from elected officials.Because after their cameo appearances the gas still remained shut down. That three of them showed up so late to aid their constituents in need and come by with crockpots to do a photo op instead of demanding accountability from NYCHA only validated how insignificant their presence was despite their status as lawmakers.

And these lawmakers were just as invisible when it came to the city’s policy for new development that still goes wanting by hundreds of thousands of residents; because a mere 5 blocks north from the Astoria Houses, de Blasio’s NYC Housing program is debuting and opened the lottery for their latest “affordable housing” building with one and two bedrooms with rents ranging from $2,050 to $2,500, all set up for a lucky person or couple earning between 70 and 130 large.

But the luckiest person or LLC who/that developed this tower got a nice 421-a tax exemption from the city for being philanthropic enough to set aside 20-30% of these apartments from this lux building for higher income earning housing starved folks. Who knows how much of the city’s largess went to this developer that could have went to a get a new boiler sooner at Astoria Houses. I bet it would have bought a lot of crockpots.

Even though those donated crockpots look nice, what are people going to do if the power goes out? Or if those crockpots are defective? The only thing Costa, Carolyn and Donnie and that foodie non-profit contributed besides marginal aid for the 48 tenants still without gas utilities were nice optics for themselves.(While Rep. Crowley above quipped that a “single-burner hotplate is simply not a solution”, a crockpot is barely an improvement either. The most they can do with them is be able to boil water faster to bathe and wash dishes with. It’s just another remnant of neoliberal based civic policies that are starving essential services for the vulnerable.

Meanwhile across the river in Flushing, an expansive swath of luxury hyper-development by a filthy toxic creek is being planned and vociferously lobbied and pushed by a Chinese real estate consortium, departing term limited councilman Peter Koo and tainted community board leadership who have a conflict of interest with the land grab (and will resort to violence and intimidation to get this approved) that the city is eager to fast track. It’s layout includes behemoth towers and hotels with a morsel of “affordable” apartments for the consortium to cash in on the sweet 421a break.

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.-NxcOvXndvYAqyH87K92GAHaHd%26pid%3DApi&f=1

Even though a few other “affordable” luxury towers have already been planted and another in it’s nascent skeletal phase, presumably the developers and the city are all champing at the bit to get this done because they are building these towers to provide equity to low income earning people in desperate need for housing even if that amount is menial. It’s also to “revive” the neighborhood even though it’s one of the highest populated neighborhoods in Queens and arguably the busiest. Naturally this hyper-development that’s being steamrolled has been met with stiff resistance and frequent protests.

But it’s a lot busier on the low end these days in Flushing thanks to COVID19. With 20% of NYC citizens unemployed since the contagion claimed over 30,000 lives and suspended and destroyed small businesses since the first lockdown began in March, lines for a food pantry run by La Journada go on for blocks and blocks. And blocks. And blocks. These people might not have gas outages at their homes, but it’s clear they have to prioritize rent over food because of their existential economic stasis to keep themselves sheltered.

As for the non-sheltered, the homeless population in Flushing as well as most of Eastern Queens continues to amass. Although the city Department Of Homeless Services policy’s past reliance on hotels to shelter people has become a necessity because of the pandemic, many homeless people still prefer to sleep rough on the sidewalks or parks and in inclement weather than to stay in hotel shelters that aren’t safe from violence or infection. Which led to this horrific sight nearby a public housing building, when a citizen found a homeless man frozen dead in a fetal position sheltered by a makeshift shelter made of cardboard boxes furnished with a pillow and blanket underneath him.

Housing and food insecurity and the existential fear of being penniless and dying on the street surely shouldn’t be happening in the wealthiest country in the world and with the Dow Jones at 30,000.

It surely shouldn’t be happening at all in the greatest city in the world with a Democrat majority with alleged progressive values that were elected and appointed to government offices. As this pandemic has exposed even more regarding housing in New York City, these officials inaction has enabled these neoliberal based civic policies prioritizing the needs of a fantasized populace than the one that already exists and all their superficial actions establishes them as the posers they are, and the ramifications from them are leaving devastation, depression and death in it’s wake. The difference now is that they no longer are capable of obscuring it.

Because while Thanksgiving comes only once a year, the laws enacted by fauxgressives favoring the developer overlords assures that everyday is Black Friday for public housing residents, the working poor, the aged and the destitute of Queens and the rest of the five boroughs.

Miami 2019 (I’ve Seen The Lights Go Out In Canarsie)

https://s3.amazonaws.com/bklyner/bklyner/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Canarsie-2.jpgNot on Broadway

Back in July on a Saturday night on the hottest week of this summer, the lights went out on Broadway as well as the entire 30 block radius spanning Midtown West to the Upper West Side for five hours on the anniversary of the 1977 blackout that plunged the city into a free-for-all crime wave. During this one though and fortunately for citizens and transients in that area at the time, particularly from Times Square to Columbus Circle, the power got wiped out when it was still daylight and the streets were still congested enough with vehicles and pedestrians that nothing really crazy or any purge-like mischief occurred on the streets. People were still milling about, some got involved in directing traffic until the NYPD got deployed and even actors and musicians from theaters and Carnegie Hall gathered on the sidewalks to entertain passerby as their shows were shut down.

Council speaker Corey Johnson made like Giuliani on 9/11 and immediately took charge since Mayor de Blasio was making an ass out of himself trying to pitch progressive policies he stole from Bernie Sanders to a handful of people in Iowa. All in all, it was practically a good time had by all who happened to be there. Although it was surely not appreciated by people relaxing or having company in their apartments or trapped in elevators; or commuters stuck on the trains or standing in a virtual schvitz in the subway stations; or tenants in public housing buildings going through another spontaneous shutdown; or patients and doctors in hospitals and even people seriously paying to watch Jennifer Lopez sing and dance at the Garden (maybe the only redeeming thing about the blackout)

But the aftermath was not so swell, as time came to demand accountability from Con Edison, and out came the righteous indignation bloviating from the likes of our Governor and Mayor. Andrew Cuomo got to do his alpha dog thing and condemned the corporate utility, peppering with threats against them by claiming to use another energy company, and Mayor Big Slow came up with blase’ hypothesis of his own after Con Ed’s ambiguous p.r. response for the causes of the blackout. (hey de Blase’, new insult)

Actually, responses. Crazy Con Eddie’s public relations team seem to be taken aback of the isolated region power failure, as they went back and forth trying to explain what triggered the blackout. Their initial assessment derived from a manhole explosion in the Upper West Side then announced that it was a technical glitch at a substation in Hell’s Kitchen while adamantly refusing to consider a grid power overload. It turned out that it was a faulty transfer that caused the explosion of a 13,000 volt cable underground on the Upper West Side. Which they waited 3 days to confirm after they got it right the first time. Three Days. Granted the mayor and governor were right to question the city’s sole energy providers strange ambiguity in divulging this information, as they themselves also rely on this deceptive tactic to mollify their constituents being the hypocrites they are.

A few days after Con Ed’s revelation, their flacks must have got self-conscious and thought that transparency was the way to go in order to ensure credibility with their customers of the five boroughs. So on the day when they finally told the truth about the Broadway blackout and with the weather forecasts predicting temps pushing 100 on the weekend, Con Edward glibly announced/warned that more blackouts would occur. While honesty like this is welcome, it’s dismaying when it’s coming from a billion dollar energy corporation responsible for power maintenance for 24 hours that should always be taken for granted.

Well the weekend came around and on this way hotter and sultry 100 degree Saturday night, Con Ed’s self-fulling prophecy manifested as the sole energy company decided to shut down power grids in Southeast Brooklyn and parts of Southeast Queens overnight and Sunday morning in a preemptive strike to avoid a citywide blackout

The reactions over 30,000 citizens from those selected areas victimized were admirably cynical and appalled. Especially from a woman in Canarsie who justifiably implied and accused the Con of regional discrimination with their disingenuous claims of preserving electricity.

“You’re making us suffer to preserve who?, Who are you preserving? Why are we not important?”

The answer to that can be clarified with pictures. Because they are worth more than a thousand words from Con Ed’s p.r. toady and from the obtuse statements from de Blasio and Cuomo, along with the latter’s abysmal demands.

These are what and who Con Ed and as much as they feign ignorance Your City are intentionally preserving energy for. These are just the obvious ones. On top is Times Square, which is not the Times Square of old, where the most creative living ad was a steaming cup of coffee. Apparently, the Department Of Buildings must have thought that putting 2, 5 and 20 story and about a block wide L.E.D. television screens and having them run every second was just a grand fucking idea. Somehow, while Con Ed was spinning the cause of the blackout for news consumption and with all these literally humongous obvious signs, they did not mention one time that it was a power overload that caused the cable to explode. Not fucking once. Who are they kidding, oh yeah, everyone.

Really tho, these bigger energy devouring monsters than Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man combined. Then you have to factor in the buildings these screens cloak and all the new luxury tower and hotel development in just under 5 years with Hudson Yards and further up the Hudson River side, plus Long Island City, Williamsburgh and Greenpoint, Park Slope and Downtown Brooklyn and imagine all the energy consumed with the A.C.’s on full blast as citizens in Canarsie and Jamaica sweltered in the darkness.

All the strips of those tony areas must be taken into account to, which are filled with high end bars, clubs and restaurants with rooftop access. Surely businesses in the southern part of Brooklyn had to be sacrificed to maintain those aforementioned town’s vibrancy because Con Ed’s intentional energy inequity and austerity shutdown.

A City Council hearing a few weeks ago addressed this concern. Council Speaker Corey Johnson found enough time to stop dancing and leaping in public like an idiot and grilled Con Ed’s representatives by abbreviating some cuss words with his accusations towards them as he other council members feigned righteous indignation as the electric company continued to bounce these questions off. Since none of those questions brought the scenario of an overload for the excessive use of electricity. Since they mostly focused on trying to maintain the infrastructure of the grid instead of the causation of the blackout. Focusing on the feature instead of the bug, which is that the grid cannot handle the energy consumed from these recently built towers and the overwhelming demand of a bigger and denser population residing in them. Which shouldn’t be a surprise because that scenario was never considered when a transformer exploded in Astoria that made the evening sky turn florescent blue last December that resembled the manifestation of Gozer or the return of the Highlander. But Corey was more concerned with the way Con Ed’s reps optics looked in how they were coming off. Yeah, he’s going to be some mayor.

Surely this will continue to happen while our officials dither and don’t probe deep enough in their inquiries and Con Ed will continue to be the city’s lone energy provider and surely fuck up when the next heatwave or extreme weather condition comes. Because with all the technology and actual demand for renewable energy sources and as the city got taller, denser and overpopulated, Con Ed never thought to build a backup power system deriving from solar or wind. Wonder how they are going to handle Google’s expansion and Disney’s new studios on Soho’s west side?

Maybe this is why Con Ed are being glib. Their VP for “government relations” in charge for dispensing this palatable information used to work for the city’s worthless, unnecessary and agency that has long outlived its usefulness except for the wealthy; the Economic Development Coporation.*

As others will leave and move to Florida for cheaper rents, lower taxes and what they presume will be a better maintained energy grid (although they will be taking a risk with global sea level rise).

The city got lucky there was no looting, rioting and fucking in the streets during the first blackout and the preemptive second one. Next time, especially if Ed pulls off the latter, people are not going to wait to question why or whom. They are going to demand answers with torches and yellow vests.

New Bad Days 46: Like It And Learn To Love It, Rikers Island Shutdown Is Underway As It Was Announced 60 Hours After A Group Of Five Gangbangers Crippled A Correction Officer; A Class Size Group Of Kids Beat Down A Homeless Man On The A Train; A Dead Baby Abandoned In A Park; Two Women Beat Down A Pregnant Woman And Slam A Door On Her Feet; Rap Crew Films Shitty Video And Shows Off Their Stash While Imprisoned; Super Crazy Guy Jumps Roofs In Bed-Stuy And Multiple Random And Intentional Slashings And Deadly Domestic Disputes.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/rikers1.jpgRikers Island, pariah government center on scrumptious speculative real estate.

From the elected denizens occupying City Hall, they have begun the dizzying ill conceived official program to shut down Rikers Island and transfer all convicts present and future to four jails in the boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Manhattan. But not Staten Island, because supposedly no one commits crimes there.

This is where the Mini-Rikers will be:

  • Manhattan Detention Center, 125 White Street, Manhattan, 10013 (The Tombs)
  • Brooklyn Detention Center, 275 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, 11201
  • Queens Detention Center, 126-01 82nd Avenue, Kew Gardens, 11415
  • NYPD Tow Pound, 320 Concord Avenue, Bronx, 10454

This transition is suppose to take a decade or if crime drops first. But apparently these fauxgressive hacks aren’t even going to wait for the latter, especially now that Gov. Andy has decided to up the ante with his jackass boisterousness and wants Rikers shut down earlier than that.

Mayor de Blasio and Speaker Corey Johnson announced an agreement today to move forward on closing Rikers Island and creating a smaller, safer and fairer borough-based jail system. Together with the Council Members representing these areas, the Mayor and Speaker have agreed to a single public review process for four proposed sites in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens. These sites together will provide off-Island space for 5,000 detainees, and will include the three existing DOC facilities in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, as well as a new site in the Bronx located at 320 Concord Avenue in Mott Haven.

“This agreement marks a huge step forward on our path to closing Rikers Island,” said Mayor de Blasio. “In partnership with the City Council, we can now move ahead with creating a borough-based jail system that’s smaller, safer and fairer. I want to thank these representatives, who share our vision of a more rehabilitative and humane criminal justice system that brings staff and detainees closer to their communities.”

“Today is a historic day, as we are yet one step closer to closing Rikers Island.  The New York City Council is proud to have spearheaded the historic Close Rikers movement by creating the Lippman commission and passing legislation enacting many of its recommendations. The Council has also funded innovative programming to keep cases out of the criminal justice system altogether, such as the CLEAR and HOPE programs, which provide treatment instead of incarceration to those with substance abuse issues. We all know that closing jails on Rikers means opening more humane, community-based facilities elsewhere. I am proud to stand with my Council colleagues and thank them for their support on this crucial issue. I look forward to working closely with Mayor de Blasio, my Council colleagues representing these communities, and the communities themselves in finally achieving our shared goal of closing Rikers Island,” said Speaker Corey Johnson.

The Office Of The Mayor

This is being done because the violent environment and corruption in Rikers has become too endemic. As opposed to the equally well know graft in the city and state government high offices for a century and at a pinnacle today? Is this really what voters, meaning the less than 25% who showed up to elect these dusted democrats, really asked for from them.

What are the costs going to be to retrofit those four jails and how they are going to manage to fit all those prisoners and even staff. Especially what the speculative costs will be to convert that garage in the Bronx into a functioning high security apparatus. Most essential is how this goal of 5,000 convicts going to be accomplished to justify these transfers.

As simplistic and cynical as it sounds, which this utopian program resembles the former in spades, the only way this can be achieved is by not convicting anyone who commits crimes it seems. Which de Blasio has already assured with recent accusations by a police captain of stations lessening crime charges and the recent and similar doctoring and reclassifying of crimes committed at homeless shelters

As for sounding like the latter, it has been known for a few years that the Gentrification Industrial Complex are salivating at the prospects of all that scrumptious real estate waiting to be taken. Even the Corrections Officers Union President Elias Husamudeen smells a rat and sees this for the fauxgressive ruse it is. Although coming from the namesake of the commission report that inspired the Rikers shutdown, Johnathan Lippman, it ain’t like those interested in all that city property are shy about their passively heinous ulterior motives masking as a humanity cause:

…former New York State chief judge Jonathan Lippman, who heads the New York City Council-created criminal justice reform commission that oversees the Rikers-study committee, said it’s only natural to explore “potentially doing some of the things we’ve done with other vacant, large pieces of land, whether it be benefiting public health, education, research institutions.”

But he also sought to emphasize, and then re-emphasize, that real estate is in no way the central focus of his committee.

“At the outset, let me say that the future of Rikers Island as a physical location follows—and certainly doesn’t precede—improving our jail system,” he said.

“The political center of this will be about how we make the system more humane and just,” he said, “and at the same time recognize that you do have a very strategically placed and valuable piece of real estate there that could have a multitude of public policy purposes to develop it.”

None of these elected idiots surely not have thought through this but predictably are following de Faustio’s (bottom) line. Particularly Speaker Corey Johnson who in just a short month after exhorting that he was going to be a bulldog critic and a check on the mayor’s machinations and decisions has devolved into the typical partisan loyal neoliberal lapdog he is. And Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz who has officially thrown her hands up and quit and gave her approval, selling out her constituents and her credibility.

While we all want to live in a city or even a world without crime, this program is being foisted on the public without a clarified thought or what the ramifications might be or how much the goddamn new Mini-Rikers are going to cost.

And one huge fact is if that when this transfer officially begins, will that endemic violent and corrupt prison culture will carry on in the new jails or will exacerbate. Because this is clearly not going to happen overnight or most certainly, well, never.

Because in Rikers Island, a correction officer was attacked and beat down by five prisoners as a guard in the same room just stood there and watched and did not help his fellow officer, who wound up with severe spinal and neck injuries from the savage gang attack. The first one who barged in the room planned the premeditated the attack during a phone call according to another inmate.

We shall see how this shit enfolds. This post illustrates that this isn’t starting off well.

In Crown Heights, a man was shot twice in the face and stomach and killed around the corner from where he lived and nearby where the voodoo store proprietors were stabbed days before.

In Crown Heights, a group of men arrested for illegal trespassing taken to the 71st Pct. were never searched and were able to record a video from a cellphone in their jail cell and were showing off a big bag of weed and talking shit a mile a minute as officers were trying not to acknowledge them. Thus The Blue Wall Of Insouciance gets denser and higher.

Again in Crown Heights, a man dressed as a superhero with a costume ensemble of sandals, long johns, bermuda shorts, a ripped wifebeater t-shirt, a beach towel and a banana was jumping from roof to roof and was detained by cops after he posed with his trusty potassium power source on a fire escape and was about to jump and defy gravity and lose.

I Received A Newsletter From Councilman Ruben Wills, Oh Boy.

010

This came in the mail a short while ago and I was equally perturbed and repulsed. This newsletter is from the councilman of District 28, Ruben Wills, who is up for re-election. It was a 3 page fold out brochure of all of his purported concerns and photo-ops and it was the size of the NY Times.

During his brief term after being elected in 2010, he has been non-existent at council meetings and has used the majority of his term pilfering around $33,000 from public funds for bogus campaign and charity non-profits and filing false documents for his luxurious tastes in designer clothing, preferably Louis Vuitton, and fancy dinners.

A chunk of the money he stole went to some company, Micro-Targeting, that specializes in campaign literature and distribution, which immediately gave me the impression that this is how this waste of paper and ink conveying Wills fauxgressive propaganda got produced and mass mailed to his constituency.

For some ludicrous reason, he still has not resigned (nor has his official peers ask for him to step down) and has maintained his elected position despite being in the midst of his court procession. In fact, he has gone out of his way to avoid facing the judge’s sentencing by coming up with lame excuses to not even show up.

And this career hustler and hack wants to tout his dubious achievements and superficial concerns to persuade voters by filling up mailboxes with this shit.

Well, it looks like decisive and appropriate action had to be taken.

013

Fuck off, Ruben. Stop sending your shit to me and everyone else. Your absentee ass is not wanted here you fraud. Primary this chump, citizens.

Update: Another one hot off the press from the councilman

032

What the fuck did I just say about mailing this tripe? Despite the contents, which shows more funding going to strengthen the safety net, it doesn’t change the fact that Ruben was exploiting his position to enrich himself.

Well, it looks like there is a need for stronger symbolism. So I decided to dispose it in a place where the councilman would surely feel comfortable.

But I couldn’t find a pile of filthy money in a pig pen, but this receptacle might do the trick.

There, councilman. Now you are amongst friends.
