My apartment was robbed yesterday too at the same block! They got in through the fire scape and took everything I had!!! The feeling of insecurity is terrible now.


Two suspects broke into an apt and we have people on this board making jokes. It is sad when people get used to the crime in the area and make jokes about it.


Curtis West, Are you embarrassed to be so ignorant? Well, at least the flashing of “white boys” photos on the Astoria post will shut your racist mouth on that topic anyway. If you want an accurate count on race and crime in Astoria just request it from the 114 pct. It’s public information. This will prove to you minorities commit a disproportionate amount of crime in the precinct, you babbling fool. Oh. by the way while you’re at it check out the race of the victims, you’ll find your brothers like to prey on other people of color. I guess your heart doesn’t bleed for them, you ignorant fool. Isn’t there a black blog you can post your foolish rants to?
