Where is Gianaris, Ramos and Caban; this is a new constant occurrence in our community and they are always MIA. That’s politics today, address only what’s good for you so you can stay in power. We need term limits for all politicians.

Crime is down overall, you can Google nyc crime statistics. They have a 20 year comparison. Overall it’s lower. Fun fact, most violent crime due to drugs dropped drastically, not because of police but, drumroll, because of the invention of cellular phones. That is interesting but also makes sense. It is sad though when you see these stories :/ Humans just can’t get along :/

Woodside Deserves better

DI Jenkins at the 114 has no comment as this is not in Astoria or covered by his 114 precinct. The 108 reminds DI Jenkins that they have lic, poorly, covered, but yes indeed: Astoria House is within his boundaries and, would you look at that, sonis a part of Woodside.

I predict retaliation at Woodside House with in ten days once the fuzz go back to sitting in the suv playing Candy crush and restart the body count.

Good job DI Jenkins, way to fail upward again.
