knock out game ?
nothing over on faKebook,etc as THEY’RE SO STUPID they post their exploits publicly.

caring parent

at least the police is taking proactive action and releasing information through media for the lady. I got attacked on my head in the subway by strangers in 46th street station in Astoria in late Nov and there is no update as of now and no media coverage.


Thank you for sharing and speaking out. I know people that have also been assaulted and/or robbed in Astoria and nothing is being done about it.
