Following an NYPD press conference about crime rates last September, reported murders (+3%), rapes (+26%!) and grand larceny attempts (+7.6%) have gone up as other crime activity has went slightly down.

The rape stats according to the commish’s theory is that the cultural impact of the #metoo movement is leading women to report more incidents which shows that those with authority are still blaming the victim. When rape was at higher levels back in the 70’s and 80’s there was no social media or even an internet to cite but they were definitely reported and referred to when the Mayor and the Chief of Police and other NYPD high brass when they compare how wonderful the city is now compared to the Bad Old Days.

And the slight drop of crimes like robbery (-2), felony assault (-6.5%), burglary (-3%) and grand larceny (-1%), shows that the level of crime stats is holding steady.

Here are shitload of examples of them from the last month, including a bunch that will make the sugar-coated press conference in November.

Brooklyn

In Canarsie, a retired detective named Ludwig got arrested at his home by Internal Affairs for fulfilling his life-long dream directing a prostitution and gambling ring with his wife and two daughters along with 3 detectives, two sergeants and two cops from precincts in Corona, Sunset Park, and Hempstead, Long Island resulting from a two-year sting where the perpetrators were able to run a 2 million dollar a year industry by using the badge to thwart competitors, warn their associates of impending raids and to get courtesy massages and coitus. In case anyone is dismayed about corruption embedded in the “greatest police force in the world”, be relieved to know that these skells will still be getting their pensions.

Also in Canarsie, a drive-by shooting of a man went awry when the shooter smashed his car into an ambulance trying to get away.

In Bed-Stuy, two shootings took place an hour apart in broad daylight as a man got shot in his legs and another man got shot in the chest and died as another man with him got shot in the ass. The one who got killed was the son of an aide to the Brooklyn Borough President.

Also in Bed-Stuy, a man wearing a shirt emblazoned with a Yankee player having a shitty year held up construction employer at knifepoint and robbed him of his company’s payroll of $3,300.

Again in Bed-Stuy, a city bus driver crashed his vehicle into a building while making a right turn.

The arsonist persistently slept in the garage and claimed that he started the fire because people were having sex in the vehicles and it disturbed and offended him. The loon should have dialed 311 or taken it up with consumer affairs.

And again in Downtown Brooklyn at the Atlantic Ave/Barclays Center Station, the ceiling collapsed and shitted plaster and concrete all over the platform as an elevator at the station is constantly out of service. The bankster sponsored arena since it’s opening  as contributed absolutely zero to maintain the infrastructure of the station and is negligent of the elevator that they shoddily built after a ludicrous deal with the state where Barflays spent 76 million to keep the station “functioning” without the responsibility for it’s upkeep.

As they held him at gunpoint in the other man’s car they forced the worker to call his boss and demanded a ransom of $700. The crooks then drove into Manhattan in the Upper West Side to a bank to withdraw money but were stopped by the cops waiting there for them, leading them to speed off but wound up crashing into a building and got caught and arrested after trying to flee by climbing a fire escape.

Again in Brownsville, a man died after crashing his motorcycle into a mini-van while making a u-turn, leading to all it’s passengers getting seriously injured.

And again in Brownsville, an off-duty cop got robbed of his vehicle and his government issued gun inside by a hooker when he went to an ATM to pay her for her service. The jackass left his keys in the ignition with the motor running, a bad habit of most cops while on patrol despite laws against idling for three minutes for citizens. Turns out the reason the prostitute stole his shit was because the guy owed her $2,000 for prior coitus with her.

In Greenpoint, another reputed hipster neighborhood also known for it’s safety, a woman walking home alone from a bar got jumped from behind by a man who pushed her against a wall then who her down to the pavement and sexually assaulted her after she kicked him in his nuts.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2018/10/101118punks.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=915Photo of the year. City’s response to this scourge of willful dereliction is to let them be, this guy resembles those cherub statues that shoot water from their mouths.

And again in the East Village, the sanitation department lost their lot to park their garbage trucks in a lot devoured by a real estate overlord by the tower pestilence development at the Blade Runner 2049 soundstage called Husdon Yards, so your city decided to park a fleet of garbage trucks on 10th st. between 1st and 2nd aves., causing an olfactory purgatory for residents there. Another result of Mayor Big Slow and your city’s tardiness and unpreparedness which will embed a stench on that block for 3 years if your city doesn’t relocate them.

Weeks earlier at College Point, that same bodack ultraviolent superstar rapper instigated a fight at a strip club when she ordered her entourage to throw bottles, chairs and a hookah at two bartenders just weeks before her high heel shoe joust with her rival mc at the fashion show. This woman, who left the 109th Pct. in Flushing guffawing like a moron after she faced charges, is a representative of a putrid gilded age going on in NYC being enabled by celebrity fan worship by the youth of today and the doting starfucking electeds that let these “talents” cause havoc with impunity because of the city’s economic dependence on frivolus spending and celebrity lifestyles and the night scene.

In Hell’s Kitchen, an NYPD traffic cop driving a tow truck made a speedy sharp turn and hit a man with a cane as he was crossing the street and dragging him on the asphalt until witnesses yelled at the idiot woman to stop. Police response was swift because the NYPD has a precinct halfway down the block. Justice for the victim will have to wait a long ass time.

In Richmond Hill, a corrections officer was killed by a MTA employee on his motorcycle who shot him in the head after yelling that the C.O. cut him off by making a U-turn. Something like this was inevitable because this neighborhood has arguably the most selfish reckless drivers in the borough.

This is yet another incident of cops using fatal excessive force to handle mentally ill people and also peculiar machinations to cover it up. This hasn’t gotten much attention from social justice groups and even detailed reporting from the media because the woman who got killed is white.

And again in Jackson Heights, a man cut the lock off the gate of a bar then robbed the place of 60 grand and it’s security system. Which is very shrewd of him, but he should have also robbed the camera that took footage of him walking to the scene of the crime.

Mayor de Blasio Doles No Fares For Ferry Bus Transfers But Not Fair Fares For The Working Poor

428Come on and take a free ride

After debuting last summer, the NYC Ferry has received from Mayor de Blasio and Your City Of New York another $300 million dollars of funding. The justification for this allocation comes after thousands wound up waiting hours to board the insufficient service that was caused by the paltry amount of boats rushed into service provided by the Frisco based Hornblower broke down simultaneously, and on a crystal ball like five year speculation of the service amassing 9 million riders.

This was immediately decided after weeks of heavily publicized demand by the Riders Alliance group for $210 million dollars towards discounted fares for low-salaried transit dependent citizens, which de Blasio said was impossible to fund and refused to implement the program into the $89,000,000(!!!) city budget and conveniently basing it on the state budget mandate for the city to fund half the $800 million emergency fund improvements and repairs for the MTA, the worst fucking transit system of the universe.

A question for the seemingly socialist and progress mayor is how come there isn’t money to give the less fortunate commuting citizens a hand? The answers are quite obvious and expansive but this post will focus on it’s arguably most popular destination dock in Rockaway Beach.

There are the shuttle buses which provide free transfers which are not available to those who need to take a city bus and train after they get off the boat. Although in the beginning of the summer in Rockaway just after the service was launched, these shuttles weren’t provided by Hornblower but were provided by massive, luxurious charter buses. It was a month later that the official buses by the Hornblower Corp came in. The costs of renting these charter buses are not known and of course were not covered in the local news media whom initially showed up en masse to the christening of the ferry service and never returned.

The massively fucked up thing about this, yet another, insulting slight and deprivation of city services for the citizens struggling to afford to live in this city is that the ferry bus shuttles are an everyday free transfer for ferry riders, where it’s bus service only went to limited stops going east (which has seen a modest influx of the hipster demographic along with the opening of an arbitrary beer garden) and ended at 67th street, avoiding a massive stretch east which contains most of the population in the peninsula where the majority of poor people live and a great amount of public housing.

Even though the shuttle has recently been extended further east to the 30’s on the peninsula (certainly because of new housing developments from lux towers to the only upgrades that was devoted to NYCHA buildings in the past 4 years), it was recently revealed that running the ferries cost twice the amount of the fare to subsidize it’s operations. It would be nice to know how much of that subsidy covers the bars and bartenders inside the cramped water trolleys.

But there is another eye-opening reason why a ton of cash is being thrown at this sinking investment and it was pointed out in the local shiny happy funtime beach weekly, The Rockaway Times. After the aforementioned simultaneous breakdown of the fleet last autumn and unfortunate incidents leading to commuters getting stuck and evacuated because of bad navigation, winter came along with a record daily frozen temperatures that manifested a new obstacle-ice.

In the peak of winter, the ferry service was introduced to another obstacle as Jamaica Bay started to freeze over, but NYC Ferry did what it could to meet the challenge. On days where conditions seemed impossible, the service was suspended for everyone’s safety, but many attempts were also made by tugboats that were hired to clear the ice so that the service could continue on some chilly winter days.

Rockaway Times

So NYC taxpayers are paying for two boat services, hopefully the tugboats are not equipped with bars for craft beer and artisan whisky sales.

It is just stupid that de Faustio would prefer to piss 300 million in the river than provide a real progressive program like fair fares for the working poor and senior citizens which would have save the city 90 million, with the remainder of the cash going to improve bus service, maintain road infrastructure and street safety by sending more cops to direct traffic in the busiest areas where congestion is the worse.

But just like the BQX gentrification street car de Faustio and the new agents of the city- the Friends of the BQX and Transportation Alternatives, insistently refuse to let go, as this new expensive allocation is based on projected ridership in 5 years time, showing once again that the mayor and his owners/donors in Real Estate care more and pander to a constituency that doesn’t exist instead of the constituency that is getting shafted from this fauxgressive mayor, depriving them of necessary transit services for these quasi-yachts and the unfair free bus transit service for mostly tourists and transients when those ghetto dollar vans would do just fine.

The 300 million allocation is also going to upgrades at all dock stations and the building of new ones like in Stonybrook in the South Bronx, another locale that’s is in midst of a luxury hyperdevelopment building boom (more like boon since this will induce gentrification and high rental market rate fabrication/speculation) to go along with the free transfer bus trips as the majority of train stations and subway tracks and signals will see elongated delays in renovations. Which makes this effort to prop up an expensive and equally ineffective transit service unfair to all commuters.
