I think he understands English. His point was that the writer should say allegedly. Perhaps it’s you who doesn’t understand English?

In the legal system, in the United States, you are innocent until proven guilty. That’s why reporters are required to say allegedly & that’s why the writer of this article, added allegedly to his article (which was not there prior). Why are you getting so bent out of shape?

No one including myself is saying he’s innocent and no one is saying he shouldn’t be arrested.

You neglect to use the word “allegedly.” Not defending someone that may have tried to steal a cell phone. All I’m saying is there are many sides to every story and he didn’t actually take the cell phone & no one was hurt. I think before we post pics of people online, accusing them of something we should be more cautious..

Black people started to cause more problems in Astoria. This has been noticeable in the past few months. The Greek community will be the first to suffer

Golden Dawn? Not even trying to hide your fascist alliance, I appreciate that, let’s you know who your enemies are. Golden Dawn tried to bring their Nazi propaganda to Astoria a couple of years ago and even the old-timer Greeks didn’t bite. Try that $shit again and you will be chased out, again. As a 20 year resident, Astoria has always been, and will continue to be a safe, colorful, multi-ethnic neighborhood.
