Feels great to live in a progressive city that wants to rely on community leaders to address issues like this.


We all need to help each other and look out for each other every time we are in public. The police cannot get to us in time, if at all. These are lawless times and we all need to be aware and HELP EACH OTHER. This guy, although big, could have been confronted by several people instead of recording it. We need to help each other more. Power in numbers. Too many people standing around and watching and giving bullies and criminals power. Not right. I’m a LADY and a would have helped.


I was to trying to separate a fighting couple back in November in Harlem. They both stopped fighting and started fighting me. I won’t forget people laughing at me when it was happening. Took my lesson. Now streets are worse. People want less police around. We will see how it will unfold unfortunately.

BLM is the biggest joke since the Me too movement. Why is it people only get mad, protest and destroy property when black men are hurt/killed by police officers, but blacks committing crimes against people ages 1-100 is perfectly acceptable?

Why are Trump lovers so mad about justice for victims of sexual violence?

Why are they against movements for racial equality? Hmm

The person in the video clearly needed to pay his rent and buy some food to stay alive… Driving a convertible Camaro, wearing designer shoes should not mislead Democrat voters, right? Keep voting for AOC and all other crime-lovers to see more of this. Imagine a white person doing the same thing to an African American person on the street. Riots would erupt…
