Are people really fighting over race right now?! This is about a 4 year old being robbed by a lowlife who has nothing better to do with his pathetic life. SMH this has nothing to do with the color of someone’s skin or even what race they are. How about everyone just help the police find this piece of crap before he does this or worse to another person, even worse, another child

The European trash market stoled 2 million dollers from the poor tax payers and there pictures are not in the paper like the people of color. I witness only the people of.color pictures get put in for ‘allegledly’ not convincetd of crimes. These (shhh white!) criminals pictures are kept quiet. Why because there white!!!! Sure. They confess already and are begging for money to pay off there stolen money back to NYC. They don’t deny nothing. No pictures. explain why. Yes we need that money for the new Muslim brothers and African dispora of astoria from queensbridge up to astoria which is rightfuly ours. Section 8 is part of the historic repeatreation of our dominant living. We are reclaiming that which was stolen from us. New section 8 houseing is being owed to the opresse dispora we have our extending presance at astoria park area . Queensbridge and astoria projects have been declined and run down by not reinvesting in basic up keep and are over crowded. we need more propertys for the dispora and to achieve it thru section 8.

-Curtis why don’t you come out vocally for the victims of creeps like Escobar? I’m sure the four year old was a person of color too. People of color kill other people of cook at exponentially greater numbers then police and white civilians combined, kill people of color. Your cowardly silence on the “people of color killing other people of color” is shameful. Are you afraid of retaliation? You’re a punk!!!

give it a rest Curtis, quit blaming the White man and cops for all your troubles. Look in the mirror and tell yourself at what point in your life did you screw up and because of your own failures you started to blame cops and the white man. Look in the mirror and see the real you. And from your post it’s obvious you are not a good person. A lot of steamed up hate for white people and cops. You will never go anywhere with that mind set.

‘Allegledly’ folks. This mans picture is put out to get a mob mentality??? He is according to framing cops look ok to blame as always a person of color when the cops even say it is only ‘allegledly’ a crime. There is no proof or conviction yet again persons of color are the boogie man. Smh.. is it okay for cops to shooting him unarmed or be chased down by a gang whites? This is snuff now.
