Manhattan

In the West Village, a woman was attacked by a man who suckerpunched her while she was walking her dog. Even though the lunatic was still milling around the area, five cops dispatched there behaved indifferently to the victim and did not pursue him. This attack was preceded by only ten minutes of another assault on a woman who got whacked with a wooden board a few blocks away. So it wasn’t like the cops were sent for no reason, although there is no reason to deliberately avoid serving and protecting the public.

This random assault was followed by other attacks in the West Village where race played a factor. A man got shoved and fell on the sidewalk by a man who yelled a racial slur at him. Then three more people got violently attacked by the same kook a week later in one evening as he hit a 64-year-old woman with a stick. Then he went to Soho and ran up behind a woman and hit her with a brick, then back up to Chelsea where he punched a man in the face while calling him a honky. What was de Blasio’s NYPD doing when 9-1-1 was called after these attacks?

The psychopath was finally arrested a week later after he randomly attacked a 64-year-old woman. Turns out he’s a homeless man with a mental condition. So did anybody call the Thrive number for him? Or decided not to because of his warm smile?

435

NYPD crime status report for the month of June shows murders are down from last year but shootings went up 7%, which means that the only reason no one is dying on the streets is that the perpetrators have shitty aim. Which is evident with most of the incidents listed on this months blotter on the “Safest Big City”

Bronx 

In Concourse Village, a woman was tormented by a group of 12 boys and girls on a city bus who were insulting her for wearing a hijab. When she got off the bus to get away from them, they followed her off and surrounded her, took off her hijab and beat her down to the ground two separate times, first by a group of girls then by 3 boys. They ripped her hijab and the clothes she was wearing apart and damaged her engagement ring during the lynching, and robbed her handbag which contained a stipend check of $500 and three forms of I.D.

Cops showed up after the bias attack and detained three of the bigoted brats then released them.

When the woman went to file a report at the 42nd Precinct, they dismissed her because they initially claimed there was no video available of her biased based assault and that there were no cameras around to record any footage of it so they decided not to continue the investigation, which is laughably disputable with the amount of cameras placed in this city and the NYPD’s own obsession with surveillance tech. Compounding her difficulty was that the D.A. decided not to pursue her bias attack because she couldn’t recall what her bigoted attackers looked like as she still was suffering trauma from the beating she took.

Screenshot_2019-07-15 5cffddf82500004e12dc238f jpeg (JPEG Image, 720 × 958 pixels) - Scaled (90%).png

Undeterred and not buying the NYPD’s complete bullshit, she had no choice but to get the footage herself. Despite the precinct’s lazy and dismissive claims, she got from video from cameras from two buildings showing two angles, distributed to the local news stations and now it’s under the purview of the hate crimes division and the D.A.’s office.

There are so many unsettling aspects of this incident. The first being the NYPD deliberately lied to this woman so to discourage her from seeking justice for a senseless beating that cost her over $4,000 in medical bills. The second is that the NYPD blew this off despite the rise in bias crimes in this city and country (which is being generally blamed by the comments of the President of the United States) which includes Islamophobic attacks like this one.. The third is that this happened a month before it got any media attention because of the efforts of this woman in spite of the willful listlessness of the NYPD. And finally is that with the amount of publicity given to bias crimes against the Jewish and LGBT communities even for things like graffiti and vandalism against them, that this beatdown of a Muslim woman would have warranted repeated updates by the corporate owned local news media or even national attention. Because even though Fatoumata Camara lived to tell about it and also get the evidence by herself to get justice, this is just as horrific and disgraceful as the bias driven attacks of Michael Griffiths in Howard Beach and Yusef Hawkins in Bensonhurst.

It should also be pointed out that these weren’t Islamophobes for these kids did not convey fear at all in attacking this woman. They are Islamothropes, because this conveyed hatred. Like other racist and biased mobs and incidents, it’s always about the hate.

Also in Concourse Village, a woman was caught in possession of 36 baggies of heroin and crack at her place of work at the D.A.’s office of the Bronx Criminal Courthouse when she dropped them on the floor.

The recidivist reckless driver then backed up into traffic and sped through stop signs and ditched the car he was driving. He got busted in a different fancy car when the cops pulled him over and was found not to be posessing his driver’s license. This fucking dick is one of the reasons why certain people want to shut down Rikers Island?

The goon later claimed that he was only trying to run over the bike rider because he was concerned about the traffic backing up behind him

Workers then brought a rolling garbage bin much later as the bucket just didn’t have the capacity or even the heart to stop the deluge.

In Pleasant Plains, a man having a domestic dispute with his wife pulled out a rifle and threatened her with it, leading her to call 911.

Impunity Public Service Announcement: Cellphones should not be used as wallets. Because three boys using app-hail services ripped off 33 Uber and Lyft drivers for 3 months. The start by using a ruse telling the mark that they need to use their phones because they wan’t to go somewhere else and feign like their phones weren’t working or their batteries were low. When that didn’t work they would resort to the old method of physical threats and just rob their phones outright. The thieves then withdraw money from the drivers “employer” apps and transfer them to fabricated accounts they control. Their operation is done with them together or by going solo. Their last reported theft was a digital haul of $1,500.

Think of this the next time you go to one of those shitty chains that refuse cash and when the OMNY pay system takes over mass transit in a few years. Turns out the tech dweebs are fucking wrong again.

The Lpocalypse Project: The Gaslighting Of And Austerity Plan For The New York City Transit System By Governor Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio And The MTA

043And just imagine a barely functional and safe transit system and mobile daily commutes. 72nd Street Station surface upgrade by Yoko Ono Lennon. Not ADA compliant.

New York, N.Y.

2019 has and will become quite an historic year for New York City transit. But most definitely not in a good way. For the future of it looks fucking bleak despite all the optimism being expressed by elected and appointed officials about all the moolah for infrastructure improvements coming.

Now that it has been decided to keep the base fare of a subway/bus ride at 2.75 while eliminating the bonus charges and raising the cost of unlimited weekly and monthly cards, this would be a good time make a layman’s assessment about the current state of the New York City Transit System run by the MTA, the worst fucking transit system in the universe. Because recent incidents and decisions have given sunlight to the crisis below, as well as above and at ground level regarding our mass transit options, which will also have a deleterious effect on traffic on the island of Manhattan and on the streets and highways that will surely continue to deteriorate and the commutes regarding the and safety by all dependent on the buses and trains (not ferries, fucking please). And it’s also shown that no one is truly capable of being assertive, proactive and having independent or rational thoughts or ideas at MTA. It surely isn’t the board whose dithering members are appointed by the mayor and governor, despite it’s alleged independence and expertise.

But it’s clear who is and always was in charge and that’s our third go-round and self-christened progressive Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose very wrong hands and demented disruptor mind has determined the fate of the MTA transit imbroglio. Apparently, the governor is under the borderline mental delusion that he doesn’t have enough control and has divined himself the autocrat savior of the transit system. This is not even as ego driven like his overzealous order to get the 2nd avenue line finished so he can throw a new years party, this is Andy’s id taking control now with this idiotic and dangerous plan to keep the L train running on time. Even Moussilini would’ve shown more restraint and self-awareness.

But how did we get to this current lowly state of mass transit and the commuting crisis in general? It all began back in January, when the decrepit saltwater hurricane Sandy corroded Canarsie Tunnel was about to be shut down in a mere 3.2 months away. After three years of meticulous research and planning by the MTA board and recently installed transit president Andy Byford along with efforts by the D.O.T. to redesign the streets of the L’s path to remediate traffic with bike lanes and improve bus service on 14th st. (despite the haphazard designs), the Governor suddenly had an epiphany induced by a dubious recollection of being grabbed by a stranger who yelled at him, which led to a visit to the tunnel when he last looked longingly at things in there, and bemused to himself that the commute could still be saved.

So Mario’s son looked and pointed at things with an entourage of hoity-toity college academic officials with absolutely no experience assessing mass transit infrastructure, and decided to scrap the 15 month thorough renovation of the tunnel and rely on an earlier rejected plan to rearrange and restructure the infrastructure’s power supplies on top of the tunnel instead. Instead of fixing and fortifying the corrosion and cracks with good old concrete and mortar, the governor and his new egghead crew decided to go with a polymer glass coating instead. During this new surface coating, the L train will continue to run as scheduled on the weekdays while running on one track on the weekend and on nights after 8 p.m. in 20 minute intervals during the two year (or more) reconstruction.

Transit crisis averted? Not exactly, because this plan was previously and soundly rejected by Cuomo’s board because of the deadly risk of spreading and exposure of cancer causing silica dust that would be released during the construction as transit service re-opened. And the GIF NYC transit provided the public with showing how the trains will flow in one tube underwater looks scary as fuck. But Andy’s id was not going to let potential environmental hazard get in the way of slaying the Lpocalypse. This mentally ill megalomaniac decision is already causing reverberations to commutes and literally the environment along the L train’s tunnels path in the niche towns of Williamsburg and Bushwick.

Exactly a month after Andy’s L plan, the Graham Ave. Station in East Williamsburg (or Bushwick as it used to be called) had to be shut down because of an overwhelming pungent gas smell that sickened a few commuters on the train when it was stalled on the tracks and then nauseated the rest of the passengers as it was slow crawling to the ground zero station. In spite of this incident, an MTA official somehow discerned that the air was safe and the L train resume it’s schedule despite the peculiar appearance of high-powered fans laid on the gratings above the tunnel to extract the noxious fuel odors out.

The following day after this announcement, three MTA workers got violently ill from the fumes that were alleged to be gone as other workers took the precaution of pulling their sweaters over their mouths until they received protective face masks.

The source of the fumes had become an evolving mystery but for some bizarre reason, MTA chief safety officer Pat Warren still claimed that the air at Graham Ave. was still safe to breathe. According to lifestyle and occasional actual news blog Gothamist and the NY Daily News, the MTA attributions of the source of the toxic entity changed during the first 48 hours. First it was determined that it was fuel that was accidentally spilled from diesel trains being used during weekend work construction; then it was blamed on an abandoned fuel tank underneath an abandoned gas station; and finally and absurdly, the MTA tried to pin the blame on superfund site Newtown Creek from a Greenpoint refinery spill from the 70’s. Of all those theories, the one that makes the most sense is the first one, being that weekend work has already begun. The other two theories are asinine considering that both of them were unfounded given that there was no evidence the station tank leaked, which probably led to conjuring up some ooze from Newtown Creek that suddenly migrated to the subway tunnels. It seems the MTA is coming up with these theories not to be more transparent but to obviously gaslight commuters and the press from finding out what the fuck is actually going on.

Or maybe the MTA is feigning ignorance. Because when the FDNY showed up in full Hazmat suits to determine the toxic levels of the leak, they did not bother to measure it on orders from the city and state environmental boards.

That’s not the only gaslighting by our servants of mass transit. A month following the gassing of Graham Ave., as the pungent toxicity rose from the crisis below and spread into the ether above permeating apartment buildings and stores in the area, evidence of the error of Cuomo’s Id and his crack Ivy league team’s L revival decision manifested at Bedford Avenue station in Greenpoint, as a cloud of thick dust inundated the station on another Monday morning rush hour.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2019/03/bedford-avenue-542.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=915

Well, guess what was the contents of the contamination that scared the shit out of commuters, it was the presence of the predicted silica dust that was prophesized. But the MTA spokesman wasn’t divulging much but did proclaim that despite evidence of the thickness and noxious odor of the particles and the sight of workers and police with protective face masks on the platform, that the air was still safe to breathe! It evidently seems that the MTA is utilizing the same spin control that Christie Todd Whitman utilized to assuage the public back in 2001 that the air was safe to breathe at Ground Zero weeks after 9/11/2001 so the traumatized city service workers could resume excavating remains at the destroyed WTC site.

 

 

 

Evidently, the MTA is clearly trying to distract their worried commuters from the fact that the weekend work that was approved by Cuomo’s id is causing the environmental hazard it was expected to cause. Which is why this plan that was revived was rejected in the first place. And the MTA’s crass denials of the air quality should cause immediate pause to anyone that what if these were attempts by terrorists to poison the tunnels instead of just causations from worker incompetence.

Another little problem with Cuomo/MTA tunnel surface remediation plan? Well, last summer on the Jersey Transit, a PATH tunnel with similar infrastructure with overhead wiring exploded causing a metal bracket to pierce through a train’s ceiling like a spear, causing 700 passengers to evacuate awaiting a rescue train and another 350 remaining stuck on a train behind it from the sharpnel and debris on the tracks . Fortunately for them, they were near Penn Station. What’s going to happen when this happens on the L train when they are done moving that wiring on the Canarsie roof and putting that polymer balm on the cracks and crevices around the walls and the floor bed?

With the frightening prospect of taking the L as construction continues for the next 20 months (but certainly more than that). Mayor de Blasio, while nowhere to be found during those two toxic transit disasters as well as four recent incidents of transit debris falling from the elevated tracks in Woodside and Richmond Hill, continues to push his stupid and expensive NYC Ferry transportation option as well as funding another study for the loathed and loathsome BQX trolley.

As was expected of anything de Blasio promotes and focusing his attention on, the NYC Ferry has turned into a disastrously expensive boondoggle. For the subsidized costs for each $2.75 ride amounts to $10.73, which went up four and change from the 6 buck estimate from last year and went up two bucks from estimates a few months ago. As the costs of the new ferries on the way is going to cost another $369 million. The timing of this report coincides de Blasio’s announcement of the ferry’s expansion of new stops in Staten Island and Coney Island, which will not be ready till 2020 and 2021 respectively and another one at the Brooklyn Navy Yard which will be ready to launch this May. The launching of the Coney Island one next year is expected to balloon the already high subsidy costs to $24.75 for every fare.

As if de Blasio’s prioritizing of the ferry over the dilapidated condition of the subway and roads and the snails pace speed of the city buses wasn’t crass enough, somehow he couldn’t placate residents of the town of Canarsie with a ferry stop of their own, even though they compiled 6,000 signatures and actually have a dock ready for renovation. Which unsurprisingly validates the fact this ferry are basically ersatz yachts and is only beneficial and necessary for the wealthy and tourists and not meant for the commuting needs of the proletariat masses. Which the ready made stop at hipster frequented Brooklyn Navy yard as well as all the luxury development stops on the East River in Manhattan proves the inequitable treatment against the more frequented subway and bus services in spades (or anchors?). Besides, Canarsie didn’t have a chance because those real estate gentrification enabling porch monkeys at the city’s Economic Development Corporation didn’t put the town on the feasibility list, even though the Bronx town of Soundview never even had a pier before and they were declared feasible by the EDC. Amazing what becoming a real estate speculative hot bed with looming parasitic tower hyperdevelopment can do for an selective area. But despite being a reverse revenue generator, de Blasio’s inducement of the NYC ferry is a city taxpayer funded investment now even though the only benefit to come from this seasonal leisure  service will go straight into the bank account of EDC board member Mark Patricof who has a conflicted invested interest he holds in Hornblower from previously working in  private equity firm with holdings in the transit yacht provider.

But these are not the only transit offenses against the citizenry he swore to serve these last 6 long years, especially the poor he pandered to get elected in 2013. After much cajoling by house speaker Corey Johnson, Da Mayor relented and implemented the Fair Fares program to begin at the start of 2019 to be available to 700,000 struggling citizens. And what came naturally from the notoriously tardy and slow mayor, the program took nearly a month to send the discounts out and limited the distribution to 30,000 applicants. Expectedly from the two-faced liar, it was nothing but a half-measure because the cards were sent out as unlimited weekly or monthly cards instead of day to day purchases which these commuters usually spend, being that they don’t have 20 or 60 dollars to plunk down right away or even have the cash at all if they are without a job. The expected diminished result is barely over hundred people are using these Fair Fares. Why couldn’t the city tell the MTA to arrange the card like its done with the school and senior citizen reduced cards. But being helpful to the most financially burdened has never been much of concern for the notorious Mayor Big Slow.

Andy Byford 

Of course, forgotten in this whole MTA mess is the man who was assigned to save it while stressing transparency and credibility for the agency, Transit President Andy Byford who arrived last year with such great fanfare and who was recently featured on 60 minutes last autumn, whose nfluence, authority and plans now been undermined and virtually eliminated by Andy’s id . His absence from the L train aborted shutdown announcement and his lack of input of the decision to sugarcoat the cracked tunnel walls and floorboards with polymer, which the initial contractor rightfully thought was a stupid and dangerous idea 2 years ago, was majorly conspicuous. Compounded with Gov. Stugots autocratic decision to junk Andy’s proven idea to upgrade the anachronistic signal system with a computer based CBTC that has been used successfully when he ran the tube in London and the subway in Toronto and has been effective since it’s been applied to the L line (figures) with some ultraband radio wave bullshit idea that Andy’s id got from Elon Musk, while Byford’s thoroughly detailed Fast Foward plan has not gotten one penny for its funding to this day since it was announced with great fanfare and widespread media coverage.

And it was looking very certain that he and FF will never get it, and recent and current history validates that horrendous fact according to NYS Comptroller Thomas de Napoli’s report as surmounting debts are going to interfere with all other moderation and renovations of the subways infrastructure. The Fast Forward plan as devolved into the Flying Fuck, meaning that Governor Stugots doesn’t give one about it at all. These two have not been in the same photo op together since I don’t know fuck when.

And Byford’s plan to make 50 stations handicap accessible was about to get chopped to 36 because of these looming debts, which derived from the blowback of the underfunding for the accessibility retrofits over a decade ago when just 1.8% was allocated for it and with the funding about to dry up as the final days of the current five year transit plan is about to end this year  If this wasn’t horrendous enough consider that 6 stations were shut down for months for surface and aesthetic modernizations like self-indulgent art and led screens flashing MTA bulletins and maps. The 72nd St B/C Station and the 23rd Street Station comes to mind.

007

With these dubious upgrades, Andy’s id’s MTA proves that the only subway improvements are designed for tourists to navigate through the city and niche parts of Brooklyn and Queens (and even the Bronx) on nice screens like the theme park this city has turned into. And all this art being installed is just there for the Instagram addicted. Supposedly the funding is only a morsel of budgetary spending, that morsel could have been allocated for initial funding on an elevator that could have been installed at a station where a mother killed herself falling down the steps while carrying a full stroller and her toddler daughter.

Too bad and too little too late that a federal judge recently decided that the MTA had to require all station renovations must be ADA compliant. The problem of course is where to get the funding again to honor the judge’s decision, because Mario’s son’s MTA burned through all the money that was to upgrade other stations, which would have also went into art that nobody asked for instead of signal and infrastructure upgrades, unsightly dilapidation of the ceilings, walls and stairs and of course elevators for the disabled as well for the elderly and children’s strollers. The latter which recently got tragic attention when a woman died trying to carry her stroller with child down along with shopping bags as she fell down the stairs when there was no escalator available in the city’s 7th avenue station.

But all is not lost for these looming and practically insurmountable expenses, for Governor Stugots budget passed with the ratification of congestion pricing to supposedly fix the MTA once and for all. Expected to accrue funding for the subway, a tolling system will be put in place to charge regular car drivers $11 and commercial truck drivers $25 to enter Manhattan below 60th street to downtown. Because that’s the way to derive funding for mass transit and levy it on people who choose to own a vehicle so they never use it and also to people that are just in town to do their jobs.

The thing is this tax levy on car owning commuters and delivery workers (a glut of them who don’t make a living wage) won’t be implemented until 2020, conveniently after the next election for Albany’s assembly and senate.

The only saving grace for car owners is that the congestion fees/taxes for driving in Manhattan will not be implemented until December 2020 (conveniently after the next election) and won’t go into effect in another two years, or maybe more being that there will have to be a system to take all the congestion tolls. Probably something like those ugly ass LINKNYC data succubi kiosks.

Of course there were more reliable and faster ways to come up with the billions to fix the crisis below; like the long overdue, sensible and fiscally responsible legalization of marijuana. But the arguments among all officials (mostly paranoid) about how it will be distributed and who should profit from it first and also expected resistance from rigid Republican elected officials and the upper echelons of law enforcement. But it got nixed from consideration in the budget hearings, so New York is going to continue to lag behind other states like Colorado, Massachusettes, California and the nation of Canada and lose billions in tax dollars from the manufacturing and selling of it.

And the big dirty obscene open secret of the minuscule taxes oligarchs pay for pied-e-terres in supertall dark luxury towers. But that immediately got crushed when REBNY sent their wormtongue minions to inundate news sites with developer agitprop and to Albany and persuaded the Assembly that these investor citizens ossified personal wealth absolutely can’t be sacrificed for the transit needs and safety of daily commuters. Despite recent heinous news of a billionaire hedge fund owner who paid $238 million for a sky high home on Central Park South and Jeff Bezos looking to purchase another multi-million dollar abode in the same building along with the four other ones he owns nearby on Central Park West. Hundreds of millions of dollars that would have been extracted from these welfare oligarchs and also from other American and foreign billion and hundred millionaire sloths who purchased these tax shelters in various luxury monoliths that have sprouted in Manhattan as well as the East River coasts of towns in Brooklyn and Queens are now gone. Gone with all the money that was never accounted for prior to this proposal.

You think the feckless Albany cowards would have debunked whatever bullshit REBNY’s wormtongues were spewing when all they had to do is look at Hudson Yards, where a train station built there before the gilded age girder and glass beanstalks were planted. While the developers, city and state were gerrymandering districts (and including Central Park) to pilfer billions from areas that needed it for affordable housing to fund it’s manifestation, the station flooded every time it rained and the escalators consistently break down even to this day. In a way, it looks like having people walk up almost 3 flights from the subway is a good way to train for the useless shawarma art staircase that you first see coming out of the station.

Which leads to the obvious conclusion that our elected leaders, appointed officials and the fucking MTA are relying on the neoliberal doctrine of using austerity measures to rebuild and improve mass transit. What usually happens with cutting costs for government projects and the abject refusal from officials to accrue funding from the wealthiest individuals, austerity always devastates the livelihoods of the lower tiers of the income ladder. Because with congestion pricing, the needs of the few (or the one) outweigh the needs of the many.

Like the taxi drivers, who currently contribute $2.50 to add on to the base fare while  tech corporations like Uber and Lyft only charge an extra quarter even though there are five times more of those app-hail cars on the streets that’s actually is at fault for all the congestion. Because of cab and livery drivers taking their own lives in the past year, this has been dubbed as the “suicide surcharge” by taxi veterans and representatives.

And everyone else will also be levied with this tax when you go to any store that sells goods, from supermarkets to department stores, because those costs are going to be added right to your purchases, adding to the prices that are already rising because of onerous state and city taxes and rent ossification. Even all you pious non-driving, bike, scooter and skateboard riding dependent on your butler apps for Amazon to deliver shit to your shiftless asses, you will be seeing costs escalate for your online consuming too and y’all know Bezos is not above gouging his customers as you’re transit commutes get more chaotic.

As for the #LpocalypseProject’s schedule, Northeast Brooklyn’s millenial urban professionals (hey, Muppies!) who will not tolerate waiting for 20 minutes or more or even the risk of getting poisoned from silica wafting in the air, they will predictably press their little apps and take pricey trips in those Ubers, Lyfts and all their imitators (and certainly more to come) to the city. While the added fees will get accrued for MTA funding it will predictably cause more congestion. No wonder Uber spent 2 million dollars lobbying to get this austerity measure ratified. They are going to make huge bank in the next year and no wonder the city rushed to get the suicide surcharge approved for just the cabs and apphails. That actually makes fiscal sense despite the levies it’s placing on their customers. But if they can afford 1700 to live in an SRO or 2200 for an “affordable” studio, the Muppies can deal with this hardship. But it still going to be a pain in the ass commute for everyone from the not yet gentrified towns of East New York, Brownsville and the ferry-less Canarsie.

As for the Canarsie Tunnel, that also is an austerity measure with inequitable results between the affluent and the working class grinders. Because this polymer coating  is just a half-measured temporary fix that is going to have disastrous consequences when the next hurricane hits this city (remember that bitch Sandy was just a cat. 1, what’s going to happen when it’s a cat. 3 or even 2?), and this infrastructure donut glaze coating of the walls and floorboards is just as cheap and effective as treating a wall with mold and grime on it by painting over it, which the MTA actually did at Union Square last winter.

 

 

 

 

 

Or covering it up with a nice poster

001.jpg

While service will continue to lag behind in the borough’s towns without niche, the city provided frequent bus transfers for L project sufferers so they can get to the J/M and G trains across town. Which will certainly be busier on the evenings and weekends than the rest of the borough’s long bus routes that are still suffering from slow speeds and late arrivals caused by…traffic congestion.

The appalling inequities that are present with the Lpocalypse Project I base on the fact that the MTA should have fixed this and shut down this tunnel immediately after the flood waters emptied out back in 2011. But that would have thrown a wrench on the over-luxury-hyper-development and fabrication-speculation market rate values of Williamsburg and then onward to neighboring Bushwick and Greenpoint and the Gentrification Industrial Complex of real estate, venture capital, private equity and the government they bought and now own were not going to let something like the safety of millions of commuters get in the way of the demographic  they want that are willing to spend frivolously and mindlessly to live in proximity of the dreaded L line.

The coddling of the moneyed hipster demo that overspends and resides along the L train line fearing that they won’t make any readjustments to their morning and evening commutes or routines. More essential to the Guvner and the Hotel and Hospitality overlords is that this L train fakeout will keep service still convenient for tourists residing in high end flophouse hotels and airbnbs in the Meatpacking district, Chelsea, LES, East Village and Williamsburg to continue frequenting all those theme bars, beer gardens, restaurants and cache take out joints in those areas being that they only need to travel a few stops in Manhattan and Brooklyn

And even the MTA is cognizant of this, because they are going head on to phase out the metrocard and replace it with a stylish but lamely named access card called OMNY, which operates as a worker I.D. card which will be used to tap a screen to pay instead of swiping. And it also will be app-accessible so you can use your cellphone to pay. Even though the brainiacs behind this stupid tech bullshit method refuse to reveal how this will effect people who pay cash (and people that will still prefer to pay cash). These type of transactions have proved to be discriminatory and the prospects for unwanted data extraction will be (hopefully) met with universal anger from commuters. Of course, the officials pushing this pay method (including Byford) responded with the tone-deaf default excuse that everyone already is distributing their data with their cellphone social media and app purchasing habits, so what does the right to privacy and individuality matter when convenience takes precedence over constitutional rights.

But like Moussilli, Andy’s Id still kept the trains running (assuming on time is pure conjecture at this point) despite all the ominous toxic signs from the two incidents in February in March. Further evidence of Governor Stugots austerity measures for the MTA is assigning his Ivy league team who convinced him to keep the L running during the tunnel reconstruction for every other remediation and renovation projects, which includes the upgrading of the signals thus superseding and undermining Andy Byford in the same manner that former Mayor Giuliani projected his seething jealousy on former Commissioner Bratton for his accomplishments in bringing down crime.

Cuomo’s adamant megalomania and de Blasio’s spineless indifference will add to the risks and dangers of the continued exacerbation of the subway. In the midst of this MTA manic depression breakdown, at least one of their board members reassured the reality of their transit surroundings by admitting and actually apologizing for the existential lousiness of the subway.

Now it’s day two of the Lpocalypse Project and as expected shit went wrong on the L with delays lasting up to 40 minutes. It looks like the folks at NYC Transit thought the GIF they provided of the trains navigating the single tube passage looked easier than they thought. But at least they deployed MTA workers to act as commuting ushers to help the critical masses of people to get on board the trains.

But tomorrow is Monday and that’s when shit gets real. Because there is still the menacing prospect of particle pollution that will surely appear again on Bedford Ave if the MTA doesn’t contain it, some of the workers moving commuters were already wearing masks as a precaution. And the shit’s gonna hit the fan now that it’s May and it’s almost summer. Will Governor Stugots Cuomo whoosh down from Albany to look at the results of his manic change of mind when the crisis below exacerbates?

Wait with abated breath. Which actually would prudent to do if you still are taking the L all the way through.

Good luck L commuters. You’re gonna really need it. But you’re gonna need a chemical mask even more.

New Bad Days 59: Police Officer Gets Surrounded By Drunk Derelicts Then Drops Them One By One After Responding To A Citizen’s Complaint In A Train Station; Queens Con Ed Power Plant Transformer Explosion Fire Cracks The Sky And Social Media But Still No Revelations About Why It Happened; An Elderly Woman Gets Beaten Down By A Career Thug In Her NYCHA Apartment Building With Broken Locks; A Man Sneaks Into A House And Attacks A Woman In The Bedroom With Her Baby And While Her Husband Was In The Shower; Three City Bus Thefts Occur In Two Weeks, The Last Two By Teenage Hooligans; A Scumbag Steals A Motorized Wheelchair From A Handicapped Woman Who Needs It To Go To School And Shooting Heroin And Littering Needles In Public Parks Has Become Expected And Normalized By The Mayor And The NYPD

Manhattan

In the Lower East Side at the East Broadway Station, 5 drunk men attacked a cop on the platform who was responding to a complaint a woman made of being sexually harassed by them. The fiends got dropped one by one as the cop kicked each fiend in the midsection as they approached and defended himself with his baton as they kept coming at him. The last moron tried to catch the cop on a blind side but he caught him and barely got a hand on him and the dumbass fell backwards on the tracks. This is the best police work in real time I’ve seen in years. Ultimately, the cop’s bravery has been all for naught because of the city’s laws stressing leniency towards public drunkenness and public urination AND defecation, these derelicts were processed at the station as drunk and disorderly and were released without charges despite threatening to assault and endangering the life of a police officer. The main problem with this is that the NYPD only initially charged them with vagrancy which gave D.A. Vance (who sucks at his job) no choice but to release them, even though it stems from his ruling that decriminalized subway fare beating. Somehow, sleeping on the subway platform and attacking a cop are seemingly also exempt from prosecution.

Police officer Syed Ali, is a combat Army veteran who served in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and was himself profiled for being Muslim and detained by TSA officers a year ago at JFK airport which stemmed from the effects of President Trump’s travel ban. As for the five wastes of life, they are back on the street and in the subway although three of them will finally face assault charges after much protestation by the citizenry and Officer Ali’s fellow cops. Too bad citizens who are related to victims of excessive force can’t get the same belated justice.

In Midtown, a man shoved a police officer on patrol by St Patricks Cathedral, injuring his wrist and elbow and another man swung at a cop inside a McDonalds on 8th Ave.

Also in Midtown,a corner newsstand suddenly went on fire.

In Harlem, a man died after arguing with a man who stole his cellphone as the thief knocked him to the ground when he tried to get it back.

Also in Harlem, a delivery man hit a transit cop with his e-bike motorcycle while riding drunk.

In East Harlem, a 12-year-old boy was caught in the shot in the leg in front of a deli.

In Downtown, a man recklessly driving his car with his dog riding shotgun, clipped another car while speeding and caused it to flip over and catch fire, killing the driver. Then crashed into two other moving vehicles and two parked vehicles, injuring three others and then tried to run away from the wreckage he caused.

In Greenwich Village, a man who attempted to break into an apartment building cut open his hand punching it through the door window, then got arrested after he called 911 and tried to blame it on a Hispanic man. The skel has 77 prior arrests in the past 30 years.

In Kips Bay, a homeless man brutally attacked a bus driver by reaching through the window and punching her multiple times in the face and chest while she was in her drivers seat.

In Downtown Manhattan at the Fulton Street Subway Hub, a woman mugged another woman for her coat by punching her in a bathroom.

In Chelsea, a man killed himself when he fell on the tracks walking between cars as the 2 train ran over him passing the 23rd Street Station.

In the Upper East Side, another man killed himself by falling on the tracks walking between cars on the Q train as it was moving, making it the fourth time in December that commuters got killed attempting this. No word yet if these were suicides or just lethal clumsiness.

In Greenwich Village, a man killed himself falling from a balcony of an apartment building where he smoked cigarettes.

In the East Village, a delivery man who parked his car in front of the Hells Angels Club to make a food delivery to an apartment building and was yelled at by a man telling him to move his vehicle. When the delivery guy returned he was confronted then beaten up by two men as one wrapped his arms around the victims neck while his buddy repeatedly punched him in the face.

Also in the East Village, a woman had her cellphone stolen by another woman who hugged her while saying goodbye in a bar.

Again in the East Village, a homeless man was found dead lying on the sidewalk.

On a crowded 4 or 5 train, let’s assume it’s Midtown, a homeless man sprawled on the entire bench whipped out his pecker and waved it around pissing on the floor like he was Jackson Pollack as the urine cascaded down as the train rolled. Then the bum went back to his nap while commuters seem to be adjusted to such a blight of humanity.

Queens

In Steinway, the sky above Northwest Queens and the South Bronx radiated with an encapsulating electric blue blast emanating from a group of explosions of transformers at the Con Ed power plant. Scaring the shit out of the residents of nearby Astoria and L.I.C..

 

After Con Ed released a statement reassuring the brief electrical fire yet encompassing, frightening and disaster movie resembling energy withdrawal was under control on social media followed by replies by citizens busting out with the film references this resembled (from Thor landing (mine) and the manifestation of Gozer) the fire was doused and everything was fine and normal. Until the corporate local news teams covered this non-stop for the entire weekend.

Eagle staff photo(Queens Eagle)

The only question that has not been asked during all that CNN-like pointless coverage is how this happened. There wasn’t a major storm that would normally cause something this major. The last time this happened was at the Con Ed plant in the East Village during hurricane Sandy. This might be premature and reactionary, but maybe…maybe the plants can’t handle all the power consumption generated from with the influx of new young professionals and posers that have populated NW Queens, crowding and inflating the rents in Astoria.

And of course, doubtlessly from Long Island City, with all that tower hyperdevelopment, it’s an easy bet that too much energy is being consumed over there. What’s going to happen when Bezos and amazon’s gentries come to the area? (since the latter are already rapidly buying condos). Will the truth come out or will it be one of those #thingstheydidnttellamazon.

But for now, since this disturbing incident has predictably subsided in this 86,000 second social media driven news cycle, all heads must focus on whether Grover said fucking on Sesame Street.

 

In Laurelton, a man tried to board a bus without paying then punched the driver’s face multiple times when he told him to get off.

In Jamaica, a fire broke out in a storefront church and engulfed the apartments above it, killing a 64-year-old man and an 86-year-old man.

Also in Jamaica, a pimp that regularly beat, tortured and robbed a woman he exploited forcing her into prostitution got caught when he hit her with a wooden plank just to get $40 from her.

Again in Jamaica, the rear wall of an abandoned church collapsed to the ground. Neighboring residents have filed complaints to the D.O.B. about the building for 2 years.

In Jackson Heights, a disabled 18-year-old woman’s wheelchair worth $6,000 was stolen by a lowlife who clipped the chain off a fence it was attached to outside the home on Christmas Day. The mother chose to leave it outside because it was too heavy to carry to her second floor apartment.

Also in Long Island City, a man hammered down a wall and broke into an office building and robbed a bunch of handbags worth over $9,000

In Bayside, this months FDNY calendar fireman model bashed a bottle over another man’s head during an argument in front of a bar.

In Flushing, a man held up another man at knifepoint when he was talking aloud about how much money he earned then cut him as he tried to rob him and made off with his handbag.

Also in Flushing and Ridgewood, a hipster robbed $8,500 from bank ATM’s by using duplicated debit cards.

Again in Flushing, a woman kidnapped the baby Jesus from a manger at a church.

In Richmond Hill, a teenage male ripped the cellphones out of the hands of two people while whizzing by them on a bike

In South Ozone Park, a 16-year-old boy escaped from a group home for juvenile delinquents by pulling a fire alarm and jetted out the door when it triggered the magnetic locks to open. Cops have not released much information on why he was there and he is now on the loose in a residential neighborhood.

Again in South Ozone Park and Richmond Hill, a man held up four women at gunpoint in the last three weeks, robbing three woman of their cellphones and cash and knocking down a 60-year-old woman to the ground who resisted and snatched her purse and cellphone.

In Ozone Park, a homeless man was found dead inside a van in a junkyard.

In Woodhaven, a massive fire engulfed a three floor mixed use commercial and residential apartment building.

In Far Rockaway, a man strangled his daughter during a domestic dispute.

In Maspeth, an off-duty traffic cop slammed a door into his husbands face during a domestic dispute.

Also in Maspeth, two men were walking around the town with a shopping cart ripping off package deliveries in front of houses. The cart pusher got arrested. (#BoycottAmazon)

In Sunnyside, a driver speeding on the L.I.E. lost control and flipped his car over and crashed at an exit.

In St. Albans, a fire broke out on the top floor of an apartment building, killing a teenage girl and injuring two women.

Brooklyn

In Coney Island, a man broke into 88-year-old woman’s apartment in a NYCHA building on 7 a.m. Christmas morning and beat her down as she laid in her bed as he shouted and demanded where the money was. After he ransacked her dresser drawers, he continued to beat her up on her bed and continued assaulting her after she pressed her life alert alarm and screamed causing him to run away.

The victim’s building does not have functioning locks on the doors, which were damaged during Hurricane Sandy six years ago, and is only manned by security guards during the day and not after 8 p.m.. The senior citizen also left her door ajar because she was expecting her home health aide, which the creep easily took advantage of.

The prowler eventually got arrested and was unsurprisingly found to have served in prison twice before. He had the audacity to blame the mismanagement and gross neglect by NYCHA (even this guy is right about that) for invading the woman’s home and his brutal assault on her, even though some mook on the grounds encouraged him to go in that building to “get money” because the doors were unlocked. Rikers is going to have to stay open a little bit longer.

In Brownsville at the Sutter Ave. Station, a man stepped off the L train and was ambushed by four men who jumped him and beat him down on the platform, kicking and punching him on the floor then robbing his backpack, phone, and headphones and leaving him bloody with a broken nose and swollen eye. The four thieves escape from the train stalled at the station by jumping over the metal ropes between the cabin cars.

In East New York, three teenage boys stole a city bus and went on a joyride ending up at South Conduit ave just a few miles away. MTA officials were not sure how they were able to steal it, but an incident that happened regarding another bus theft in the Bronx mentioned here later should debunk that denial.

Also in East New York, a woman about to enter her home was held up at gunpoint by two men and robbed her of her purse.

In Vinegar Hill at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, a man held up a business office at gunpoint and robbed $800 and a cellphone from a woman employed there.

In Prospect Heights, two men held up a hip cafe by gunpoint and stole and rolled out with an ATM machine.

In Cypress Hills at the Cypress Hills Station, a man grabbed a woman on the elevated platform and tried to force her into blowing him. She kicked him in the balls and fought him off as he tried to pin her down causing the big pussy to flee.

Also in Cypress Hills, a woman was held up at gunpoint by a man in broad daylight and robbed of her wallet and cellphone.

In Sheepshead Bay, a man ripped off a cellphone from a store and a worker gave chase. The man then ran up the elevated train station and tried to flee on the tracks and wound up dead when an express Q train hit him.

In Crown Heights, a man jimmied a lock of an apartment building with a screwdriver and robbed a package containing sunglasses worth over $1,000 from the vestibule.

In DUMBO at the York St. Station, a man kicked and punched a commuter in the stomach and head on the F train during an argument over a seat.

In Sunset Park, a cockfighting ring in a barber shop was raided by police and arrested it’s manager.

In Williamsburg, a man forced opened a door of an apartment building and robbed a package containing shoes that was left in front of a tenants door.

In Bed-Stuy, a 58-year-old disabled woman died of a heart attack in her apartment as EMT’s couldn’t get to her because of the dilapidation of the building from the roof collapsing months before made access impossible.

Also in Bed-Stuy, a man was paddled 200 times on his ass after partying with a fraternity group in a brownstone building.

In Brighton Beach, a 64-year-old woman was jumped from behind in her apartment by a  man who shoved her to the floor and robbed her of 12 bucks.

Also in Brighton Beach, a woman washed up dead on the shore by the boardwalk.

Bronx

In Eastchester, a fat slovenly man sneaked into a house in the late afternoon and attacked a woman who was lying in her bedroom with her 2-year-old son in a crib by her. The man took a jumping rope and tried to tie her up as the child was screaming, the woman fought him off but was grabbed and strangled by the deviant as she was furiously knocking on the bathroom door to get her husband to come out of the shower. He came out and punched the invader who then ran away leaving his rope behind. The family just moved into that home after being homeless for half a year.

In Charlotte Gardens, a crew of five men broke into a supermarket, cracked the safe and robbed it of $21,000. It was the eight business they have burglarized in the past 4 months in the borough by cracking safes and busting open ATM’s stealing a total of over $166,000.

In Mount Eden, an off-duty traffic cop involved in a car wreck took out a machete to confront the other driver.

In Foxhurst, a man was shot to death after meeting his killer on the street and bled out when he returned to his apartment

In Parkchester, a man was killed on the street from getting shot in the back.

In Claremont Village, another man was killed on the street from getting shot in the back seven hours later from the murder in Parkchester.

In Norwood, an off-duty police officer strangled his mother following a dispute she was having with his father.

In University Heights at the 183rd St. Station, a man got on the 4 train, sat next to a 4-year-old girl and slid his grimy hand underneath her to cop a feel. He then threatened her mother when she yelled at him then got off at Grand Central.

In Hunts Point, a man snatched a crate of beer off a freight train and got killed by another one as he crossed the tracks running away.

In Riverdale, an 80-year-old man slipped under a city bus when he tried to get on and the driver crushed his legs under the rear wheels as he kept going.

In Longwood, a man stole a city bus from an MTA yard and drove it around for 8 hours, going to Queens and back. Transit system workers were not even aware it was missing and one bus driver pointed out that all you have to do to start the engine is to press a button.

And again in Longwood, six teenagers stole another bus that was left parked in front of a shopping mall and went on a triboro tour cruising through the Bronx then Queens and Brooklyn and ditching the bus a half a mile away from where they stole it. This makes it the third time an MTA vehicle was robbed in two weeks.

In Mott Haven at St. Mary’s Park, despite a city program to tamp down on heroin abuse heroin addict littering by placing receptacle boxes for the needles and other works has barely made a dent (or a jab), as needles and vials are still being disposed on the grounds in full view by the junkies, who according to one honest addict observed that those boxes give them permission to shoot up with impunity.

At St. Marys, over 20,000 needles were found on the grounds where citizens and families go and kids play. The grounds that Mayor Big Slow de Blasio exhorted to critics that would not be ceded when he announced the 60 million dollar social engineering policy to place 60 kiosks to place at 3 parks including this one. That’s 1 million dollars for each smack waste basket and they are only being utilized by junkies barely above 10% of the time. Not in Central Park or Carl Schulz by Gracie Mansion. Not even by Prospect Park which is near his own home in Park Slope.

After acknowledging the failure, Mayor Big Slow and NYC Parks decided to go back to the city largesse again for $350,000 and hire six big hearted individuals to clean up the dope fiend detritus and another 450 large for mental health workers to aide junkies to rehab centers. NYC Parks already has over 50 people cleaning up these biohazard materials. So that algae that is amassing at your area parks lake is going to have to wait.

To be fair, St. Mary’s is actually an ideal place to implement a needle disposal program, despite how stupid it is, for that park has been a junkie haven for decades. And it’s understandable why addicts don’t want to go near those boxes for fear of the cops popping up to cuff them, but mostly because they are too loaded and and too weak to clean up after themselves. But it’s clear they have nothing to fret because they continue to shoot out in the open even though the NYPD presence at St. Mary’s had spiked (pun intended) after a NY Post reporter witnessed five of them getting doped up.

As for the citizenry and the children of Mott Haven who frequent St. Mary’s, they are collectively pretty much jaded and sick of hearing the empty declarations and promises from Mayor Big Slow and also say they haven’t seen any punitive actions or even the slightest hassle towards the junkies from the cops as well. The only reported recent action and admonishment by police to move along was toward a father and his son, who were in the park riding their bikes and sat by a bench where one of those needle boxes. Surely knowing how bizarre that look, the cops also hassled 3 addicts and searched them in a token act of law enforcement. It’s like the NYPD is enforcing Murphy’s Law to manage this societal malaise.

The NYPD was thinking of their safety of course and also not to disrupt de Faustio’s social engineering debacle, but for the law abiding people and innocent kids it’s just another blight they have to get adjusted to as their towns slowly become “opportunity zones” for oligarchs and wealthy developers and investors to profit from.

One last thing. The cops are treating the Bronx junkies with kid gloves while they had no problem slapping the cuffs on thousands and thousands of Black and Puerto Rican people for smoking and possessing pot during de Faustio’s 5 years corrupting City Hall.

Staten Island

In Port Richmond, a man whose car was sideswiped from a hit-and-run driver followed the perpetrator to his job at a deli and walked in there brandishing a metal bat and challenged the man to step outside, where he swung at his arms and legs then ran away.

In Great Kills, a man robbed $30 off an 87-year-old woman who was heading to the mailbox to send a stack of Christmas cards she was carrying.

Also in Great Kills, a man driving drunk crashed his car into an elevated train track post.

In Port Richmond, four men beat down and robbed a man on a street corner.

In New Springville, a retired internal affairs officer had 2 loaded shotguns and 2 stun guns confiscated from his home due to a warrant stemming from him posting threatening videos and shitlists against other cops on his blog.

Also in New Springville, two was arrested for robberies of tech gadgets worth five grand from two stores at the Staten Island Mall

In Cottage Place, a woman through her cat out of her window, causing the feline to lose a leg.

And somewhere in S.I., a man walked up to a porch and robbed an Amazon delivery despite getting caught by the homeowner.

Happy new year, citizens of all ages. Remember to stay and even get more informed and be aware of your surroundings. Yours truly from Impunity City…

Federal SNAP Cuts Are Driving New York City’s Poor People, Government Agencies And City Cops To Take Drastic And Society Dismantling Chances

https://cdn3.img.sputniknews.com/images/107056/48/1070564859.pngYes, that is the baby’s head that cop is palming.

Boerum Hill, Brooklyn And Inwood, Manhattan, New York, U.S.A.

The scene was at a Human Resources Administration office in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. A mother with her 1-year-old child along with many others were waiting four hours to get assistance to get or recover SNAP benefits that were suddenly denied to them.

Reportedly, the woman, Jazmine Headley was there addressing her difficulty getting a work voucher and SNAP benefits was frustrated about her desperate situation that it led to an argument between her and the HRA staffers.

Compounding this fracas, the place was so crowded with people waiting for over four hours to get help that HRA apparently (or allegedly) ran out of chairs, leading Ms. Headley and her child no choice but to sit on the floor against the wall, which apparently didn’t sit well with the authority figures there, who then ordered HRA’s contractor security guards to command her to get up. When the Ms. Headley profusely refused they called 911 and have some police officers bounce her and her child out. Then all hell broke loose.

 

 

The video is a veritable play by play of current arbitrary police procedure. Although violently pulling an infant is a new one. How the cop managed to physically tear that kid from her mother’s arms while she was prone on the ground with 3 other cops wrestling her and not breaking his body can be considered a miracle and also if there is a NYPD training session with a doll for this type of situation. Another new one is pulling a taser and pointing it at the horrified crowd. But the usual method is in play here, like having cops or agents (like those two wearing suits) act as a shield to prevent witnesses from filming with cellphones.

The woman was eventually arrested and was quickly put through the justice system. As she faced a judge it was not only for resisting arrest and other charges brought about from the struggle with police, but also a warrant over her use of another person’s credit card. Then she was sent to Rikers Island.

This grotesque and cruel incident has gives the impression that being poor and complaining about being denied due benefits, as well as sitting on the floor against the wall in a spacious room, is now a crime in New York City.

But new information has come out in the aftermath and it has actually made this look worse for all individuals involved, and it doesn’t seem that an incident like this can even be preventable in the near future.

Being justifiably frustrated and pissed off about her SNAP benefits vanishing and missing a day at work at a job she just got and not being able to get a sitter for her child, Ms. Headley was inconsolable and took out her frustration on the HRA peace officers and workers there by profusely cursing them out. It turned out that they had spare chairs and the child was in a stroller but she refused them in a mixture of protest and spite and wound up sitting on the floor with her son.

Then the cops showed up and in another video from the front angle showed how the brutal wresting of the child began. At first it was calm has the woman was lying down on the floor protecting her baby, then the ill-thought procedure commenced and it gets worse from there. Where you can see the three cops trying to pry the child from the mother’s arms who continues to resist. You can also see the HRA agent aggressively pulled the mother’s arms and also the mother’s terrible misjudgement of wrapping her legs around and also hitting her son on the head in a vain attempt to stop them from taking him. Ms. Headly also bit the guards who tried to detain her prior to the cops showing up.

Despite the later reports on Ms. Headley and the phsyical risk she inflicted on her child, it still does not compare to the arbitrary, callous and crass handling of her situation. That is still a one-year-old child. A fragile human being. The way to handle it would have been to exercise patience and continue to talk to her and persuade her to settle down. It would have taken a while but she would have probably calmed down if they convinced her about putting her child at risk by not cooperating. Besides, it wasn’t like there was any progress going on at that SNAP center if hundreds were already waiting to be served.

But nothing can beat the half-assed empathy statements and obligatory indignation from top city officials:

From NYPD Commissioner O’Neal: “Thank goodness nobody was hurt, or at least at the time nobody reported any injuries” (What he meant to say: Thank goodness nobody reported any injuries)

From Mayor de Blasio, who noted how disturbed he was when he saw the footage, and deferred to the NYPD and HRA to get to the “bottom of it”, once again gutlessly passing the buck and shirking responsibility, leadership. And also judgement, because that HRA center security guards are provided by FJC Securities, which is already in hot water for their coverup of a man getting beat down by their guards in a homeless shelter in Brooklyn.

And most notably, the scornful avoidance and willful ignorance of the incident as shown by the pseudo-official wife of the mayor, co-mayor Chirlane McCray. As a reporter tried to question her, a woman (who was either one of her overpaid aides or a cop doing security) shoved her and made sure she kept a steady and long distance from the so-called feminist and tireless advocate for women.

Rosa Goldensohn on Twitter: “.@NYCFirstLady asked about Jazmine Headley arrest: “No comment.”… “

As for the authority figures involved in the melee’, the two HRA security guards who initially were dealing with Ms. Headley’s frustration and her volatile actions wound being suspended for a month and the cops involved with the physical extraction of the child and pulled a taser out to make the crowd disperse who were filming it will not face any disciplinary action. And also will not be identified because of the 50A provision civil rights law being profusely exploited by the NYPD to protect misbehaving and rogue cops.

The biggest tragic irony behind this is provided by well-meaning and tech-worshipping incompetent city officials. As the head honcho at HRA, Steven Banks, decided to make applying for and conducting benefit transfers for SNAP benefits through online applying through an app despite the fact that Trump and the Republican House have devoured funding from the program through draconian budget cuts which has rendered this convenience for millions of citizens who applied online for this arrangement being left in the lurch. As for SNAP, well that funding had to be diverted to pay for the oligarch welfare tax cut bill that was ratified last year by the wealthy hedonist Congressional and Senate officials and signed by the Sharpie-wielding President and also to the Pentagon for another 700+ billion dollars for the war on terror and now cyberwarfare.

Despite the booming economy, this money has not trickled down to those who need services the most, notably the working poor, who are having trouble buying food combined with the astronomically inflated rising cost of living in the five boroughs. Which includes the hundreds at Boerum Hill waiting for the aid they expected and those who suddenly had them ripped from them without notice.

Which now also includes a man who was recently victimized by government inaction and decided he was not going to take it anymore. At an HRA center in Inwood in Manhattan, Davaun Fournillier destroyed a laptop belonging to a worker while demanding to have his benefits restored and made sure to remind the staff there that “we’re not in Brooklyn” in obvious reference to the chaotic incident just a barely over a week agothen broke the wrist of a HRA guard who tried to handcuff him and detained him for the cops to arrive. When they cops showed up, they did nothing because they “didn’t know what to do”, even though Mr. Fournillier’s daughter was alone in another room waiting and they wouldn’t even call ACS or notify the child’s mom. Ironically, the prior incident in Boerum Hill has made the NYPD virtually handcuffed to respond to emergency situations at welfare offices. Not ironic and what is now atypical NYPD procedure, is that cop who said that and did not help identity’s also not being disclosed to the public.

This year of 2018 has bared witness to a lot of dystopian systematic bullshit and incompetence embedded in our government services that to summarize it would take a massive tome or 5 GB PDF file. But what happened this December at two welfare offices might have to suffice for now. And it may just be the genesis of a burgeoning insurrection that will unfold if this doesn’t get staunched. For what Ms. Headly did when she also endangered her child and what Mr. Fournillier did when he took his rage out on and assaulted that security officer which has made his personal situation even more dire now that he is facing charges and fines, were acts of resistance towards a broken unfair system still favoring the most wealthy and powerful, enabled by opportunistic selfish politicians who are using people hired to enforce the laws and maintain order as cudgels to defend these fugazi bureaucracies as taxpayer funded services continue to lag for people to desperate and to dependent on their stagnating paychecks and trying to survive under crushing economic inequities to live in NYC to fight back.

It’s not (yet), but it’s a telling start.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mayor de Blasio Makes Unprecedented N.Y.C. History By Firing His Department Of Investigation Chief Mark Peters

https://impunitycity.files.wordpress.com/2018/11/ec92e-bdbscared.jpg

New York, N.Y.

The mayor waited a while since the release of a draft letter crafted by his (technically ours) city attorneys calling for the removal of Department of Investigations head honcho Mark Peters but they finally got it. He did not even strategically wait until this holiday weekend to do it too.

But de Blasio did strategize and machinate for about a year to sack him in order to selfishly avoid the bad optics and pathetically evade suspicions for firing the historically independent top investigator of department bureaucracies. Which under this corrupt and stupid mayor have all become shambling shitshows.

These two one-time allies for liberal causes and accountability have took quite the 180 degree turn since Peters was financing de Blasio’s 2013 campaign which the mayor thanked his friend with an immediate patronage hire for the D.O.I. position. But something wicked happened in the first couple of years, de Blasio spent the majority of his mayoralty distracted with boosting his national profile, forming and running a shady PAC fundraiser in city hall, and spending time and money in burgeoning court hearings involving that illicit fundraising while Peters actually and dutifully concentrated on doing his job and noticed a tons of malfeasance and corruption going on in almost every city office, the standouts being the Administration of Childrens Services, NYCHA, Department of Education, Department of Homeless Services, Department of Buildings and even the NYPD.

Reading Mark Peters letter to City Council, the impression it gives is that de Blasio had been hoping that Peters would let all of his political discrepancies and repulsive influence peddling and pandering slide. It also shows Peters as a man who saw all this endemic crooked behavior effecting city policies and services and was probably driven nuts by the efforts by de Blasio’s minions as they undermined him whether by collusion as what led to his ouster by firing an aide over an authority and agency shakeup at the BOE; or by intimidation as Peters cites one meeting with a top brass cop flashing his piece; or by petty tribal insults as his former colleague Deputy Anthony Shorris derided Peters as an asshole and not a “real friend”.

You gotta wonder what a toll this took on Peters psyche, seeing a guy he raised money for and believed in him turn into a colossal two faced back stabbing prick as he filled his cabinet with like-minded soulless amoral sycophants and opportunists.

Well, de Blasio no longer has to worry about his former friend that he threw under the bus since he got elected and will now insert a person that will be expected to give a veneer of independence and transparency while giving fealty to Bill the whole time, so his honest grafting in City Hall will continue unabated. That way he will be able to waltz around town on occasion, jab an accusatory finger at reporters and escape from New York time to time to promote his progressive activist charades.

But it’s not all bad, despite this brief respite from the facts that incriminated Mayor de Faustio, he still has to deal with the citizens despite his concerted effort to hide from them too. Because a few months ago while Bill de Bastard was dithering like a coward to fire Peters so the optics wouldn’t look horrible (even though it still does), there was a homeless 72-year-old woman named Nathylin Flowers Adesegun that wanted to do some intrepid sleuthing of her own:

Knowing that the snowflake mayor stops at the Park Slope Y during his entire morning ritual every fucking day commuting to Park Row, Ms. Flowers Adesegun, along with housing activist group VOCAL-NY, walked up to where he was “doing yoga” sitting on the floor holding his Blackberry and kindly asked him how come there wasn’t a sufficient amount of “affordable housing” for the homeless and he told her that “he wasn’t doing this right now because he was “working out” and scurried away from her with his NYPD security guards.

Now what Nathylin exposed here wasn’t only what an reprehensible elitist scumbag and shameless liar who betrayed poor and vulnerable people like her is. It’s what she and VOCAL caught de Faustio doing, and that’s this man’s daily tax dollar profligate wasting workout routine is a ruse.

bill shaking handsbill's blackberry

Really, who does yoga in cargo shorts. Who does it while wearing running shoes, although they came in handy here to briskly walk away from a elderly woman demanding answers.

And for a physical workout that takes concentration and inner peace like yoga, he berate sNathylin for disrupting it with her distracting and inconvenient question. The big stinky shitty but is why the fuck is he holding and using his Blackberry during his “workout?”? Obviously, he is bothered and can’t won’t have a discussion with one of the 63,000 plus homeless people of your city but he can talk and text on his blackberry during it. He was actually texting while she was talking to him too.

bil touching his phonebill's blackberry infull view

Knowing the character of our Mayor here, he is still conducting government business on the sly like he did with those non-elected “agents of the city” meetings with lobbyists that worked on his 2013 campaign in City Hall in his first two years. Hell, he could still be calling them to this day. That Blackberry needs to be FOIA‘ed immediately.

bills-blackberry-infull-view1-e1542914437972.jpg

Of course this is just a amateur theory. But it still warrants an investigation. Which unfortunately, the guy that seriously devoted his energy to expose and expunge graft and the embedded kakistrocacy and cronyism in our city gov’t departments was expunged himself by his fellow Park Slope compadre.

But it wasn’t in vain, for if it wasn’t for the intrepid work of Peters we all wouldn’t be cognizant of the Rivington House deed flip, the slack responses that led to child deaths by the ACS, the criminal obfuscations at NYCHA by the executives in charge and the amoral workers covering up the dilapidation as well as their asses, and the peculiar happenings going on in the NYPD involving the shakeups at the Special Victims Unit divisions, which may be why rape has been redefined into two genres (stranger and acquaintance rape) and blaming the 25 % rise of rapes this year on the #meToo movement.

We hardly knew ya Mark. But that will surely change pretty goddamn soon. Even the NY Post and Daily News have been solid and blunt covering #MayordeFaustio. For that teflon covering on that bag of dicks is starting to crack.

And rest assured that Ms. Flowers will not be the only one holding Mayor de Faustio accountable for his brazen lies, there will be many other citizens too.

As well as this digital publication, Impunity City.

Your City.

 

 

 

Errant Horizons: The Violent And Vehement Blowback From The Well But Neoliberal Intended Rikers Island Shutdown

https://dailynews.news/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/20181004new-yorknyc-crimeny-metro-union-calls-end-horizon-center-20181004-story.html_.jpgThe tattered banner says it all.

The Four Boroughs, New York

It was just over a year ago, when retired judge Johnathon Lippman and his professional peers compiled a study citing the horrid conditions regarding criminal impunity among inmates and correction officers, human rights violations and the myriad violent conditions in the environment in Rikers Island to justify it’s shutdown. After incessant publicity and promotion by fauxgressive figures like Mayor de Blasio, former speaker Melissa Mark-Viverto and various tag-along liberal sops in city council; Governor Andy Cuomo signed into law to raise the age for getting charged as an adult for minor offenses and major crimes to 17 years old (to be raised to 18 in 2019) leading to transferring of over 90 young inmates to the Horizon Juvenile Center in the South Bronx on the first of October.

With such a rare humanitarian gesture from state government towards the prison population, what could possibly go wrong. Well, a day later and the first second when the kids went through the front door of Horizon, everything did.

In a grotesque result of what happens when the bleeding hearts of well-off liberals lead to brain hemorrages, all of the teenage males took their new found limited freedom and attacked all the corrections officers appointed to watch over them. Leading to twenty of the C.O’s getting hospitalized for injuries. The majority of the kids showed visible delight knowing that the guards were not equipped with pepper spray and handcuffs, because they were denied these defensive accessories according the newly signed law. Which certainly inspired the kids to throw desks around and break windows. One scamp even took a guards uniform shirt and wore it.The kids also utilized all the free unrestricted space to reassemble their gangs and reignite their street rivalries and brawl with each other.

As for the rationale behind the lack of gratitude shown towards being held in an optically better facility from where they came, it wasn’t like the kids didn’t warn them of what was going to go down:

While stationed at Rikers, the injured officer said the teen inmates taunted Corrections staff about what would happen once they were transferred to the Bronx facility and working unarmed.

“They said ‘just wait until we get to Horizon,’” said the injured officer, who was reassigned to the 90-inmate juvenile facility when the teens were moved.

This led the Corrections Officers Benevolent Association union leader, the benevolent Elias Muhammed, to rightfully imply I told you so:

“They aren’t turnstile jumpers, the open container crowd. These are gang-bangers. They are here for robbery, attempted murder and murder.”

The chaos barely even settled down as the kids kept being surly and uncooperative every day since the tranfer as 17 more C.O.’s and even two captains were attacked by the kids.

 

Calling the reactions to the anarchy that has broke loose at Horizon by the ones driving the Rikers Shutdown as haughtily tone-deaf is literally understating it. As the bruises and broken bones from these altercations were still fresh that the usual suspects that induced this stupid transference went into spinning dervish mode.

Beginning today, no one under 18 will go to Rikers Island,” tweeted Mayor de Blasio. “Kids will be treated like kids instead of adults. This is an historic moment for criminal justice reform and another step toward replacing Rikers Island with smaller, safer, more humane facilities.”

 

Gov. Cuomo also tweeted Monday, writing “As of today, NY’s Raise the Age Law is now in effect. This law raises the age of criminal responsibility, removes 16-year-olds from the adult criminal justice system, and prohibits 16- & 17-year-olds from being housed at Rikers Island. A big step forward for our justice system.”

“All 16- and 17-year-olds have been transferred from Rikers Island to Horizon Detention Center,” said ACS spokeswoman Chanel Caraway. “We are in a transitionary period for a historic reform that’s never been done before and there have been some incidents involving youth and officers, which were quickly addressed. None of the injuries were serious, but we take these and all incidents seriously.”

That last statement was a doozy, for it leads open the suspicion that Ms. Caraway has never felt of even seen a broken bone or surface wound. But the damning thing about this is that this transfer was under the purview of the Administration Of Children’s Services. Which is a wonder why they didn’t send guards from that government office and laid the care and security of the center on the Department Of Corrections. Certainly that may have driven the young inmates to go giddy at the prospect of getting some sort of revenge on their former captors.

Another thing about the Horizon transfer is why wasn’t the near billion dollar mental health program THRIVE run by de Blasio’s wife and co-mayor Chirlane was somehow not involved in this? Being that the reason behind this transfer was to get them away from the mentally traumatizing environment in the cells of Rikers. But the answer to that is that even the officials in those government offices knew damn well of the potential danger lied ahead if they sent their counselors there and obviously did not want to risk injury or even death. Despite all the alleged empathy behind this transfer and the Rikers shutdown in general is the obvious concern and fear knowing how those 90+ formerly incarcerated kids will violently react.

If there has been some actual progress in this nascent stage of criminal rehabilitation is that the city finally acknowledged that they had to make conditions safer at Horizon by bolting down the desks so the gangbangers don’t weaponize them and fogging the windows so they don’t see each other (even though they definitely are aware of each others existence, duh.)

Meanwhile, as Horizon is currently and temporarily faded into the background, plan b of the city’s mentally mad Rikers closing is gathering methane releasing steam with the building of new prisons in neighborhoods in the boroughs except for Staten Island (which with the failure of the ferris wheel, they actually have prime real estate to glom for a prison there). And it will also be understating how contentious (although utterly inspiring) the reactions of the communities from those towns are.

What started in a scarcely reported city hall meeting scarcely meaning that it was closed to the press and public that was only with by a tweet, in what can be derived of being under the impaired influence from the Lippman Study and the still unmentioned pernicious influence of big time real estate investors and the lobbying involved from both entities, the city wants to build smaller prisons in the metropolitan areas of Kew Gardens, Queens; Downtown Brooklyn; Chinatown, Manhattan, and bizarrely and most inappropriately on a residential street corner in Mott Haven in the Bronx.

The unmistakable fury and abject objections for the city’s tactless and crass plans to place jails was dominant in recent hearings in Kew Gardens and Mott Haven. And why wouldn’t it, because like every other ill-thought policy that comes from and is induced onto the constituency from de Blasio’s city hall city planners and (whoever the new agents of the city are) is executed by stealth and with arrogance and disingenuous self-righteous blather. For example, the neighborhood jail plan draft was initiated in a secret meeting in city hall among officials and some persons of interest that was closed to the public and reporters according to a tweet by a writer from Gothamist, then the draft was disseminated to reporters hours later. (Foul fact, when that cityblog folded, de Blasio arranged a meeting with them for some bullshit discussion but mostly to bloviate what a progressive icon he is.)

And what a draft it is. Because you see, the plan is to not just put prisons in residential areas. Oh no, your fucking city wants to place prisons where criminals will be serving long sentences in towers. Towers ranging from 20 to 40 stories! Because you see, the city and obviously the unmentioned caring folks from real estate and development, want to integrate unsightly prisons with residential living and commerce by having apartments built with them and stores to shop or restaurants to dine in.

81518closerikers3.jpgTake this dumbshit rendering please and shove it up your neoliberal asses.

It seems the reason for these stylish glossy penitentiaries is so it seamlessly and aesthetically blends in with all the other glossy towers that have arose in Brooklyn and Manhattan and the presence of towers will hopefully spur high market speculation in Kew Gardens and Mott Haven (leading to pestilent gentrification). But it mostly gives the impression that the neoliberal powers that be think that towers and the vector of upscale living it emits will be able to camoflage the inconvenient truth about the existence of crime and criminals. Just like the rationale that affordable housing can only exist with luxury tower development, resulting mostly in camoflaging the existence of destitution and homelessness. On the subject of affordable housing, these towers with jails will also conveniently yet slightly speed up de Blasio’s bogus affordable housing program in a way too since it doesn’t take much thought to speculate that no one would pay market rate to live in the same building with convicts milling around the lower floors. And judging by the fury of the citizenry of these targeted areas, those people obviously wouldn’t want to live there either.

These spanking new jails are suppose to materialize only if the prison population decreases to 5000. Which is a super tall order considering that major crimes like murder and rape have had incremental increases and all other crimes like grand larceny, assault and battery and burglary have remained steady.

But damn if these big brainiacs in their elected, exalted government jobs and a clueless, oblivious heiress and her non-profit operation aren’t going to stop trying to fulfill this #Rikersshutdown mission in spite of tax-paying residents rejections and the inevitable societal malaise that will occur.

That heiress would be Kerry Kennedy and her foundation. Who has put up five million dollars to post bail for women prisoners in Rikers and even those ultraviolent kids in Horizon despite prior arrests and serving time for attempted murder, robbery and assault. Which those teenagers committed again immediately on Horizon’s admission day . One female convict and recidivist criminal who held up a sex shop at knifepoint that Kerry’s foundation bailed out by contributing $25,000, didn’t show up at her court hearing to ensure her new found charitable freedom.

Then there was a murder committed by a man who scored a plea dea by D.A. Cy Vance after he was charged for possessing an illegal gun. Just a week and a day after Vance’s way too trusting decision, that man got involved in a street hassle with another man on the street and chase him down and shot him in cold blood.

Another thing these fauxgressive intellectuals like Lippman, Kennedy, and progressive issue bandwagon jumpers and stowaways like de Blasio and Cuomo don’t get or even acknowledge are the people, the victims of the crimes committed at them from these kids and adults. Victims of a rape, robbery, burglary, assault and murder of course are being violated of their human rights too. Which is hard to conceive by people isolated in the upper echelons of society and class and those elected officials daily protected by an entourage of cops. And deep down they know it’s a fact, because before the transfers of juvenile delinquents to the Bronx and these obligatory bullshit town hall hearings for the boro prisons, the city’s commitment to upgrade and renovate Rikers Island to make it handicap accessible is still going on at the cost of 50 million dollars.

And even de Blasio is not immune from his fears (and he has many this man is a giant coward) of the presence of these inmates as well as the existence of crime itself. When the weak ass mayor decided to hold a press conference at the 40th Pct. back in July, he ordered that prisoners detained in the cells there be moved to the 41st Pct. across town. The illogical logistics led to the latter Pct. forced to assemble a command post outside of their station to handle the load of new arrests, being that the 40th has seen a large rise of crime in that district.

The cognitive dissonance and brazen hypocrisy by him as well as the other suspects mentioned here shows that these plans have no basis in reality or common sense and is irresponsible. But mostly incompatible with the towns they want to dump these prisons on and even on the inmates they purport to help. The corrections officers and the citizenry are extremely right to reject these programs.

Bo Deitl, during his disruptive, incorrigible and juvenile behavior during the mayoral debates around this time last year made the best observation about Rikers Island: “Why don’t we fix what we got”. That sentiment desperately still needs to be applied here. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to help these convicts and make certain that they are dwelling in a safe environment during their incarceration. After all, prisoners have rights. But these reform plans and the officials minds that concocted and executing them, along with the rationales behind them are as hardheaded and maladjusted as most of the kids that rioted  the first day at Horizon and any recidivist criminal continuing to commit crimes on the streets against the citizenry.
