Our commissar is extremely pleased as well as his minions from Astoria. Justice?? Tie the hands of the police elimination of quality of life enforcement . This is the end result. More to come boys and girls the summer has yet to arrive. With 2k plus cops retiring and another bunch set to leave as per the city register things are going to get much worse. Thank you so much

Nothing racist. Just being a solid citizen. You could learn from me. When the library throws you out at closing time, stop by Cronin and Phelans and have a few pints with me.

Why do the liberals think they are so much better than everyone else?

The projects aren’t about race. They are about quality housing (better than where I live) for pennies.

Oh no ANOTHER racist Trump supporter!!!

Just because he’s Black doesn’t mean he did it!!!


Crime in Housing developments has gone up over the past couple of years because of Deblasio’s soft on crime policies. This is what happens when you ease the NYCHA felony ban and take away Stop & Frisk!
It will only get worse while this garbage mayor is in office!!!!


Really,,, STOP/FRISK in NYCHA what about the fining tenants when they don’t comply, this generates funding more legally. Pay for what you break
this stops waist. NYCHA tenants can volunteer to help keep their homes cleaner, inside and outside.
