Aloha. From the safest big city in America, as proclaimed on this robust bold face lettered sign on a dais table in a room at 1 Police Plaza, four major crimes have gone up in the borough of Queens last year. Rapes went up by 40% with 389 from 302, felony assaults went up by 1.2% with 3,848 from 3,820, grand larceny went up by 4% with 8,070 from 7,842, and murders are up by 20% with 62 from 50 from last year. Buglaries and robberies went down in some significant margins in the hundreds yet stagnant enough to remain in the 2,500 totals, and grand theft auto incidents remained the same at around 1,550.

So let’s begin this first reality check with the borough of the world.

Queens

In Jackson Heights, a 82-year-old woman got killed while walking in the crosswalk by an unlicensed driver who hit her with her car and then backed up over her body trying to get away. The NYPD charged the driver with driving without a license, failure to yield and to “use due care”. The latter meaning, not killing anyone while driving a 2000 pound vehicle. This really looks like voluntary manslaughter being that the driver showed intent to flee the scene.

Also in Jackson Heights, two men broke into an apartment by breaking the window after ringing the doorbell for thirty minutes in a robbery attempt then ran away with nothing.

Again in Jackson Heights at the Roosevelt/74th Avenue Station, a man committed suicide by jumping on the tracks as the F train arrived.

And again in Jackson Heights, an off-duty cop punched his mom in the face during a domestic dispute.

In Long Island City at the Court Square Station, a woman hit a motorman in the head with her bag when he tried to break up a fight she was having with another commuter on the G train.

Again in Long Island City at the Queensbridge Houses, a man escaped from police during a lineup search from a call of drug dealing on the first floor of one of the buildings.

And again in LIC at the Queensbridge Houses, a man shot his gun inside an apartment and fled the building.

In South Ozone Park, a motivational tattooed man held up a woman with a fake pistol and forced her to a dark secluded area and raped her for hours. The dirty rapist blamed it on cocaine and a proclivity for outdoor sex.

 

 

Also in South Ozone Park, a driver killed himself and his passenger after speeding on the Belt Parkway when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a lamp post, splitting the car in half.

 

In Jamaica, a woman lost control of her car and smashed into a pole then crashed into a store, injuring herself and two of her passengers.

Also in Jamaica, a man approach an 11-year-old girl walking on the sidewalk, started talking to her then grabbed her thigh and ran away.

Again in Jamaica, a man escaped from his parole officer’s office while still handcuffed and ran out to the streets.

And again in Jamaica,a fire engulfed a house converted into a boarding home, killing an 84-year-old woman.

And again in Jamaica, another city bus got stolen while the driver was taking a lunch break, making it three in a month by this kid. This time by another rambunctious kid who cruise around with his buddies for two hours and abandoned the vehicle in Cypress Hills. The MTA decided to install key ignitions in their fleet of 5,700 buses in the next few months, although storage is still an issue because they still have to leave them out in the open on the street for a lack of lots to park them.  Better hope some domestic terrorist or random mental person doesn’t take one for a joyride too and plow a crowded sidewalk full of pedestrians during the upgrades.

And again Jamaica, a man driving wildly on the boulevard crashed into a car and two people on the sidewalk while being pursued by the cops. He was pantless when he got arrested.

And again in Jamaica, a man walked up to a news van and opened the door, then yelled at a reporter about why he’s there and smacked his cellphone out of his hand. When the reporter went to retrieve his phone on the street, the culprit then tried to run him over with his car.

A fire that killed two elderly men in an apartment building in Jamaica last December as been upgraded to homicide and arson.

In Richmond Hill, two men jumped a woman when she was exiting her home and held her up at gunpoint. They forced her back inside her house and tied her and another person there with duct tape, pistol whipped her and stole $500.

In College Point, two men were shot at in their car while moving on the street that came from a vehicle that rolled beside them in a drive-by shooting after leaving a strip club following an argument with other patrons. The same club where a Grammy nominated rapper threw glasses at two bartenders there. One of the victims died 2 days later.

Also in College Point, a three alarm fire engulfed a warehouse, injuring a worker inside.

In Woodhaven, a man walked into a laundromat and punched a woman who worked there in the face and dragged her to a bathroom and strangled her.

Also in Woodhaven, a supervisor for NYCHA got busted for cabinets and kitchen appliances worth $1,300 that was meant for public housing.

In Ridgewood, a 13-year-old boy was jumped, beaten down on the ground and robbed of his backpack and wallet by four other boys.

In Rego Park, a fire broke out on the fifth floor of an apartment building, killing a resident and injuring three others.

In Astoria, a man was caught stealing pricey toilet fixtures from the men’s room of a Wendy’s. This theft was part of a spree of restroom burglaries in 8 other restaurants in the world’s borough.

Also in Astoria, two men in the middle of stealing a scooter parked by a diner fled with the vehicle after they threatened an employee at knifepoint who tried to stop them.

Again in Astoria, a man was confronted by two men on the F train who sat down next to him and asked for money. When the commuter told them he didn’t have any and decided to verify it by showing his empty wallet, his accomplice then stuck a boxcutter to his face and threatened to cut him while he snatched his wallet and took his cellphone.

And again in Astoria, an 88-year-old man died two days after he got hit by a car while crossing the street.

In Fresh Meadows, a man had a mental breakdown and took two knives and stabbed his wife to death and slashed his daughters wrist and hands.

Also in Fresh Meadows, a man held up a gas station at gunpoint and robbed it of $600 and 15 cartons of smokes.

In Kew Gardens Hills, a man stalked two women who got off the Q65 bus and threw both of them to the ground and robbed their purses 8 days apart from each other. He is suspected of mugging a woman who also came off the 65 and robbed her designer purse and $750.

In Sunnyside, terra cotta tiles from the viaduct elevated 7 train tracks broke off and pierced the windshield of a parked vehicle and all over the parking lot.

In St. Albans, a man walked up to two men sitting in a car and took out a gun and shot at them multiple times, killing the driver.

In Forest Hills, a food delivery man was ambushed by three men who set him up by placing an order as he met the alleged customer in an apartment building and was jumped by two masked men who took his keys and robbed his motorcycle.

In Corona, a water pipe and a gas main broke on Northern Blvd causing the street to collapse, stemming from a construction site on the block that was issued a stop work order because it had been causing cracks on the pavement and the road.

Also in Corona, a man broke into a jewelry store through the roof and plundered a million dollars worth of merchandise into bags, but only made off with $100,000 worth when he hurriedly left other bags behind.

Again in Corona, a three alarm fire torched a home that left 3 people injured.

In Flushing, a man heading home got jumped by a man near his house who pistol-whipped him in the head multiple times and robbed him of $400 cash. The mugger also pistol-whipped another man and robbed his cellphone two days later and walloped another man with the gun two days after that but didn’t get anything.

Also in Flushing, a man was furiously knocking on the door of a couple’s apartment and yelling. After getting the door slammed on him, he fired his gun and his accomplice fired his gun in the side window, hitting a woman in the leg while she was in the kitchen.

Again in Flushing, a firehouse got infected with scabies, forcing it to close for delousing and leaving smoke-eaters all itchy.

And again in Flushing, a man destroyed eleven statues inside a Buddhist temple.

And again in Flushing, a man slashed another man with a box cutter during a fight inside a deli.

And again in Flushing, a fire engulfed a home, killing a woman.

In Maspeth, a woman had her car practically robbed by her city when a DOT worker affixed a no parking sign when there wasn’t one before when she parked in that spot. A traffic cop arrived just minutes later and towed her vehicle to the pound.

In Elmhurst, a professional bench warming football player stiffed an app-hail driver of $32, leading to his arrest when the driver called the cops. During processing of his arrest at the 115th Pct., he punched a cop in the face.

In Averne, a man let off gunshots on the street from a 23-caliber handgun.

In Bayside, nine home invasion burglaries happened in eight days.

Also in Bayside, a fire broke out on the second floor of a mixed-use building, injuring two people.

Again in Bayside, a man got hit by a car while crossing the street by a reckless driver.

In Briarwood, a man slashed and stabbed his daughter’s boyfriend to death during a fight inside their apartment over an argument about the victim’s alcoholism.

In Middle Village, an off-duty NYPD cop killed himself with his own gun.

In Broad Channel, a 12-year-old child stepping off a school bus got hit by a hit-and-run driver who swerved the bus that was parked letting students off.

In Queens Village, two men got caught in a stolen car on the street by it’s owner, leading one of the thieves to run and hide in a backyard. When the homeowner, who was a retired C.O. Captain saw him, he got punched in the face by the thief and then got into a physical struggle with him, then he managed to pull his gun and shoot him.

On the Jackie Robinson Parkway, an ATM machine was found ripped apart and destroyed in a wooded area near Forest Park, which led cops to a chop shop in Bed-Stuy that had three other ATM’s that were stolen in that neighborhood, leading to the arrest of six men.

At Kennedy Airport, a truck hauling human fecal matter crashed into a airplane on the tarmac.

On Rikers Island, the rise in violence, notably stabbings, and a shortage of correction officers on patrol, has led to a drop down in attendance in the prison’s education program for high school aged inmates.

Manhattan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Washington Heights, two men loitering on the staircase of the 169th Street Station entrance who were annoying and harassing commuters were approached by two cops who were called to tell them to stop obstructing and move along. After cursing out the officers, the men suddenly put up their dukes and were provoking them to fight. The cops then pulled out their batons to defend themselves from the derelicts.

Despite getting hit with the stick, the man continued to swing at the cop, leading to a chase and the cop succeeding in getting him down to asphalt. As the copand a couple detectives held him. the cop, showing poor judgement and lack of restraint despite being vexed by the thugs, repeatedly wailed on him with the baton.

The social media video (which had outstanding play by play a woman who witnessed the entire altercation) and another video posted before the street hassle erupted shows the thugs were the agitators. Apparently, the skell who got the worst of the beatdown was involved in other prior violent altercations with the NYPD, and boasted how he had three lawsuits against the city and was awarded settlements and talking shit about how the cops can’t touch him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dynamic douches are known to citizens in the area for selling K-2 and were also recently involved in a scrum with cops by attacking them with bats just last month.

The dick who bragged that this will be his fourth lawsuit against the city, hopefully the D.A. prosecuting this arrest should probably bring these taunts and salient facts to the judge who will hear this case. Unfortunately and nauseatingly, the braggart was released and not charged for his role in the street fight with the cops he started. This is why the cops have to tamp down on the use of excessive force, because these opportunist bastards are taking advantage of social justice policies and citizens demands to hold cops accountable for such actions.

Also in Washington Heights, a man stabbed his wife to death in their apartment, then committed suicide by stabbing himself and jumping off a balcony stemming from a marriage separation.

Again in Washington Heights at the 181 St. Station, a homeless man who failed to catch a bag of food that his friend threw at him which fell onto the tracks, decided to go onto to trackbed and retrieve it, but slipped and fell when he tried to go back on the platform. Then the 1 train arrived and the man miraculously survived getting splattered by crawling in the trough.

subway-fall

At this same train station at Washington Heights, it has become a brazen den of iniquity for junkies blatantly shooting smack in front of commuters as discarded syringes are spread out all over the platform and trackbed. This will probably add up since Governor Andrew Amazon has allocated $598,000 to the state health department to provide more syringes for the smack shooters which are dispensed from a mobile unit truck that happens to be parked across the street from this station (!!!) , kind of like Mr. Softee (anyone wanna do a photo shop of the iconic vanilla swirl head mascot as a junk peddler). Maybe Transit President Byford can ask for some of those needle disposal boxes that are barely being used in Cortona Park in the Bronx.

And again in Washington Heights, a woman killed herself and injured her passenger when she drove her car in the wrong direction on a road by Riverside Blvd, then crashed into another car then careening through a wall and landing on a cemetery grounds.

And again in Washington Heights, a man stepped out of his car and walked up to a double parked car and shot the driver in the neck, which eventually killed him and his passenger in the arm then drove away.

In Greenwich Village, a 62-year-old man got killed inside his apartment from a gunshot to his chest by a man who fled while holding a garbage bag from a drug deal gone bad.

In Kips Bay, a woman bit a peace officer on the arm during a scuffle with other guards at the DHS homeless intake center. The bitten cop got suspended without pay for defending herself by hitting the disorderly woman with her handcuffs.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2019/01/190101-biting-handcuff-suspension-index-feature.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=915

Also in Kips Bay, a drunk man got hit by a car crossing the street by a hit-and-run driver.

In Midtown, a gang of teenage boys robbed seven newsstands by stealing candy then robbing the cash when the proprietor runs after them or they just punch them in the face and grab the loot from behind the counter. Truly Dickensian times your city is in,  Fagin would be proud of these scamps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also in Midtown, a man punched a random man in the face at a hospital. The perp once got off on a double murder charge 10 years ago for stabbing and killing two people on the 2 train and has been a naughty recidivist since.

Again in Midtown, two men pulled off a burglary spree of restaurants starting at Wolfgang’s by busting down the glass door and robbing cash and booze, then went west and bashed a glass facade of another restaurant but was chased out by an employee, then they went up 20 blocks and broke into a Ray’s Pizza and stole two cash registers.

And again in Midtown, a man that got caught shoplifting in a high end department store jumped into his car when he saw cops waiting outside and sped away, damaging other cars and sideswiping bike riders during the getaway.

And again in Midtown, a man got stabbed in the chest on the sidewalk by a man while his accomplice acted as a lookout.

And again in Midtown, a skeevy viral video celebrity chef is being sued by his waiters for wage theft for ripping of their tips.

And again in Midtown, a scaffold extracted itself from a luxury tower development and smashed into the windows, causing it to drop large shards of class to the sidewalk, and was perilously dangling from 48 stories high.

And again in Midtown, a man smashed two windshields on a car with a bike lock then hit the driver on the head with and jumped on it’s roof and yelled with his arms outstretched like he was a gladiator or a preening wrestler.

And again in Midtown, a retired NYPD officer left her semi-automatic gun inside a comfort food restaurant bathroom and found it missing when she went back to get it. The rationale behind her possessing the weapon is from a perk awarded to retiring cops validating concealed-carry permits.

And again in Midtown at the 42nd St/Bryant Park Station, an imbecile decided to take a stroll on the train tracks, causing delays on six transit lines.

And again in Midtown at the 7th Avenue Station, a 21-year-old died after she fell down the stairs while carrying her one-year-old daughter and a stroller filled with groceries as both escalators at the station were only going up.

The NYPD and a city medical examiner concluded that the woman died from a “pre-existing medical condition”  after first determining that she died from the fall but did not divulge what that what condition it was. Although the woman’s relatives said she had a thyroid issue and was suffering from migraines the day before her death.

First off it’s amazing the expediency was to investigate this so fast to get a result for how this preventable tragedy occurred, preventable meaning that this station should have fucking elevators. Second is how the examiner utilized an Obamacare stipulation to determine how the woman died, which just stinks of undermining the severity of the woman’s fall. Could her pre-existing condition been aggravated by the fall from hauling the cumbersome load of the stroller with the groceries while precariously holding her baby while walking down the steep staircase?

In the Upper East Side and Murray Hill, four teenage boys robbed four produce cart vendors of a total of $1,500 in a crime spree a week before the newsstand robberies above.

Also in the Upper East Side, a woman committed suicide by jumping from her apartment window.

Again in the Upper East Side, a slab of concrete fell off a luxury high rise building development still under construction and landed on the roof of an apartment building it shadows over next door and crashed through the ceiling of a man’s apartment.

Screenshot_2019-01-27 Concrete slab falls from UES building into apartments.png

And again in the Upper East Side, a babysitter shook a 1-year-old boy by the head, lifted him up and threw him on the couch.

And again in the Upper East Side, a housekeeper was stuck in a lift of a billionaire investors’brownstone house for three days over the weekend. The elevator was cited for prior violations by the Department of Buildings.

In Harlem, a naked man climbed on top of a truck and danced for the crowd and the cops that showed up to detain him

naked truck man.jpg

Also in Harlem, a fireman crashed a firetruck with two of his children riding along with him into a dumpster and a parked car and drove it away during a holiday event arranged by the FDNY Engine 69. No report was ever filed of the accident and all of his fellow smokeeaters colluded to cover up the hit-and-run.

Again in Harlem, a pregnant EMT worker was assaulted by a drunk man she was treating as he punched her in the stomach when she recommended he go to a hospital for his injuries.

And again in Harlem, a man with a gun got tazed by a cop when he approached them with a gun inside a hallway.

And again in Harlem, a man was shot to death and found lying on the street.

In Chelsea, a 5-year-old boy walked out of his kindegarden class and wandered away from his school and walked into the 23rd Street Station on 8th Avenue.

Also in Chelsea, a water main broke on 7th Ave and 15th Street, causing the road to collapse and release tons of water onto the L train tunnel leading to suspending service on the line. This should put a literal damper on the governor’s new fix it plan.

In Soho, a man broke into a store selling popular tech products by smashing the window at 1 a.m., and robbed over 50 items worth $75,000.

Also in Soho, a woman and man plundered an painting from an art gallery and ran away. The curator gave up chase and claimed that the piece wouldn’t get resold. That is very strange reaction, especially considering the vanishing of a DaVinci painting worth 450 million dollars and the lack of effort or investigation to find it.

In the East Village, a woman was awaken from her sleep by a man who was standing above her in her bedroom. After he raped her, he demanded $1,000 from her. When she told the predator that she didn’t have it, he bounded her with duct tape and stole her bank card, phone and laptop.

Also in the East Village, an off-duty cop was held up at gunpoint and assaulted by a man who pistol whipped him on the street trying to rob his cellphone.

Again in the East Village, a pile of christmas trees dumped on a street corner was set on fire, smoldering a van parked by it.

And again in the East Village at Tompkins Square Park, a vandal spray painted cartoonish penises and testicles on a tree and slide.

In Hell’s Kitchen, a man and a woman committed suicide in a hotel room by asphyxiating themselves with plastic bags and laughing gas.

In Union Square, a man bolted from the 4 train at the station after he grabbed a woman’s ass.

In Times Square,  a man grabbed a woman in the pussy on the Q/N/R/W platform and ran away when the woman he groped chased him

In Chinatown, a guard who works for the Department of Citywide Services, sexually molested a woman by grabbing and feeling up her ass as she was purchasing a metrocard at the vending machine.

In Central Park, a man robbed a police scooter from the Central Park Pct. and drove it all the way to New Jersey. Cops didn’t realize it was gone for about three hours before they activated the GPS on it. The vehicle can only be operated with a universal key, which means some dummy must have left the engine running.

In the Upper West Side, a 17-year-old boy was stabbed in the chest in front of pizzeria and died hours later after refusing to provide the cops with his killer’s identity or description.

Also in the Upper West Side by Central Park, an argument between two men escalated when one of them pulled his gun out and shot at the other man who fled and jumped over a wall in the park.

Again in the Upper West Side, an SRO apartment building fire killed one and injured two people.

And again in the Upper West Side, a man loitering inside an apartment building jumped a woman and her mother in the lobby and held them up at knifepoint and forced them into their apartment where he tied them up with electrical tape. When the woman’s father showed up and knocked on the door, the man held a knife to his daughter’s neck and ordered her to let him in and then tied him up to a chair with a belt then robbed them of their credit cards and split. The daughter broke free and called the cops leading to the perpetrators arrest after resisting the cops by fighting with and spitting on them. It turned out that the man was currently homeless and on parole.

And again on the Upper West Side, a big fucking couch is perched on a tree’s branches. The city has been giving concerned citizens the runaround deferring responsibility to other departments to remove it.

https://www.westsiderag.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/couch-in-tree.jpg

In the Lower East Side, a man slashed another man in the face following an argument inside a diner.

Also in the Lower East Side, a man smothered his 8-month-old son to death in his wife’s apartment at the Gompers Houses.

In the Flatiron District, a truck driver turned made a sharp wide left turn on 23rd st. and 6th avenue and sideswiped and damaged the fencing at the entrance of the 23rd St. Station

In the West Village, a woman committed suicide by hanging herself in her apartment.

And grand larceny has gone up on the subways in 2018 attributed to an international team of pickpocket thieves. Kind of makes this city feel like it’s slowly reverting back to the days of the Artful Dodger or just an imitation of Tijuana, Mexico.

Brooklyn

In Sheepshead Bay, a man ran into a Chinese buffet restaurant screaming with a hammer and attacked three men who worked there. Killing a chef instantly by bludgeoning him in the head, and critically injuring the owner and another employee who both days later died from their injuries in the bias attack.

Also in Sheepshead Bay, an 11-year-old girl walking on the sidewalk with her friend was confronted by a group of boys who were sexually harassing and pouring water on her as the boy she was with filmed it on his phone for his social media account.

 

 

 

Also in Sheepshead Bay, two men are involved in a month long burglary spree, breaking into 7 buildings and robbing merchandise, money and surveillance products.

In Borough Park, a drunk man went inside a deli and wanted to crash in there and take a nap. When the clerk told him he couldn’t do that, the vagrant asshole suddenly found energy and went nutso, knocking over the lotto machine and cash register then assaulted him, slamming him against the refrigerators, punching him repeatedly and throwing him to and dragging him on the floor. Then he continued to trash the place, knocking over snack racks and throwing candy all over the place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also in Borough Park, a traffic cop trying to tow a parking violator’s car was disrupted by a group of three boorishly arrogant and crass men who managed to dislodge the car off the police truck and started to racially bait the cop while enabling the lawbreaking driver to flee, flee, flee. The three thugs then kept badgering the officer by calling him a loser and made threats that he will lose his job like they thought they were Jona Rechnitz or Jeremy Reichberg or some other politically and higher brass police connected powertripping asshole like them.

 

In Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, a fugitive wanted for his role in a murder of a man in Ozone Park in 2017 was shot at by FBI agents trying to enter an apartment he was hiding in, blowing out the windows and scaring the shit out of other tenants. The suspect was arrested and a hundred cops were deployed to manage the crowds, despite the fact that there were virtually no citizens outside for the phalanx to disburse.

In Bushwick, a man suckerpunched a 16-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy on their heads inside a Bushwick Houses building while they were waiting for the bus to go to school. The lunatic then hit a woman with a tree branch outside moments later.

Also in Bushwick, a man jumped a woman from behind in an apartment building lobby and held a knife to her throat then sexually molested and robbed $100 and credit cards from her.

Again in Bushwick, a police officer was busted selling $25 worth of marijuana inside of a liquor store. Well, you got to take the badge and the power and responsibility that goes with it seriously, it isn’t like you can give out gun permits to famous people like the President and his sons, his former fixer Michael Cohen or to some of de Blasio’s special donors under the diligent watch of the legendary Commissioner William Bratton.

And again in Bushwick, a 19-year-old man was shot to death on the street from a shotgun blast to the chest.

Again in Downtown Brooklyn, two people were shot at by a man in front of Macy’s.

And again in Downtown Brooklyn, a man lost control of his SUV and drove up the sidewalk and knocked over a scaffolding building shed.

In Brooklyn Heights at the Borough Hall Station, a man confronted a woman on the two train and started rapping to her then went nutso and grabbed her neck while trying to steal her necklace then ran away when he couldn’t get it.

In Brownsville, a woman walking on the street got jumped by a man who held her at knifepoint and dragged her to his SUV. He then taped her mouth and tried to rape her but she fought back and wrested the knife from him. He then took a tire iron and hit her and wrapped her arms with the tape and took down her pants and underwear and violated her, but she continued to resist so he threw her out of his car. The deviant was trailed by a determined police captain and eventually arrested him at his apartment in Mount Vernon.

In East New York at the Pink Houses, a man was killed in a hallway after getting shot by a masked man 11 times.

Also in East New York, a fire engulfed a house injuring six residents.

Again in East New York, two men held up a man at gunpoint and demanded that he hand them a bag he was holding. The gunman then fired a shot at the victim and missed as he and his accomplice ran away.

And again in East New York, five men got arrested for operating a heroin drug ring operation that expanded into Bushwick and South Ozone Park. They referred to the product with fancy expensive car names.

And again in East New York, a man pulled over by cops for driving recklessly, stepped out of his car and shot his pellet gun at them, leading two cops to fire back with three shots to his body.

In Bed-Stuy, a man was shot in the chest on the street and ran to a nearby deli screaming for help.

Also in Bed-Stuy, a woman walking on the sidewalk was approached by a man who panhandled her for spare change. After she gave him some, he continued to talk to her and then grabbed her ass and ran away.

Again in Bed-Stuy, a man brutally beat down a 63-year-old homeless man in front of witnesses who were chortling while one was filming it on a live social media platform in the hallway after he accused him of harassing his mother by looking into a peephole on the door at her apartment.

In Sunset Park, a delivery man was killed while riding his motorcycle to work as he got hit by a livery driver opening his car door and caused him to fall under a vehicle moving on the street behind him.

Also in Sunset Park, a man was killed by a hit-and-run driver when he was crossing the street.

Again in Sunset Park, three men held up a mahjong parlor in a social club at gunpoint twice in three days, robbing players and the house of $9,600.

The two thieves ran away when two cops showed up, with one of them dropping their gun. The cops then looked at the weapon but decided to leave it on the ground. A few minutes later a man saw it as the cops were walking away, picked it up and fled. The NYPD allegedly disciplined the cops, who remain unidentified because of the 50A ruling that’s supposed to protect police from criminals from finding out where they reside but is more often used as a shield to cover up malfeasance, incompetence, use of excessive force, and in this case, insouciance.

Also in Fort Greene, a man committed suicide by lying on the tracks in a tunnel near the Lafayette Ave. Station. as the A train ran over him.

Again in Fort Greene, a 19-year-old man vandalized a police car then along with his friend fought with the cops as they tried to arrest him.

In Canarsie, East New York and Brownsville , two men robbed three businesses by breaking open cash registers and ATM’s, making off with a total of over $25,000. The thief is suspected of 14 other burglaries of small businesses in Queens.

Also in Canarsie, two men broke into a pharmacy from a door on the roof and robbed the safe and register and also drugs worth $40,000. Those meds would have been worth a lot less if America had ratified legislation to keep the price of them down or even a Medicare for All program.

Again in Canarsie, a man died from injurious burns he got when he and a woman set off a fire on a rooftop preparing some kind of ritual.

In Midwood, two men mugged a man for his cellphone and 18 bucks.

In Clinton Hill, a man was shot to death in the stairway of the Lafayette Garden Houses just as he was about to visit his mother at her apartment.

Also in Marine Park, a man randomly attacked a 13-year-old girl in the street by grabbing her neck and slapping her face.

In East Williamsburg, a man got shot to death in a hallway at Cooper Park Houses following an argument with two other men.

In Greenpoint, Neo-Nazi dickweeds are vandalizing walls, lampposts and emergency kiosks with bigoted and Anti-Semetic messages on postal stickers. One of their vile agitprop pastings got a sweet response.

 

On the Belt Parkway on the renovated Mill Basin Bridge, a fireman fell to his death trying to leap to the other side of the bridge to rescue passengers of two vehicles that crashed. Why is there an open gap on a short bridge on a major highway?

On the Williamsburg Bridge, a roaming stray dog was found walking on the train tracks, delaying the J and M trains for 90 minutes as cops rescued him.

And the NYPD detective who had a pair of allegedly clean panties shoved in his mouth by his superior officer was greeted by his fellow brothers in blue at his home who detained him and was ordered to turn in his badge and gun and then sent to psychiatric ward. Just like what they did to Det. Adrian Schoolcraft when he tried to report NYPD corruption.

Bronx

In Fordham Heights at the 182nd/183rd St. Station during the morning rush hour, a man loitering in front of the entrance asked a man approaching for ten bucks.

The victim did wind up giving him some money after his attacker stood over him and the skell is still on the loose.

In West Farms, a man was shot to death as he sat in his car by the Murphy Consolidated Houses. The victim killed two women over there 15 years ago. The first one he strangled to death and left her nude in a stairwell, and the second one he murdered with an accomplice over being owed drug money and tried to cover it up by leaving her naked in a stairwell to make it look like a sexual assault. Wonder what would give him the inspiration for the latter. Good riddance.

Again in the South Bronx, four teenage males attacked a woman in a train station, all taking turns punching her then robbed her headphones and a $600 belt.

And again in the South Bronx, two teenage prisoners sexually harassed a corrections officer at the Horizon Juvenile Center. The city waited an entire month to release the report.

In Eastchester, a man held up a worker at Dunkin Donuts at gunpoint and ordered her to empty the register then bolted out the door with $700.

In Belmont, a shootout on the street between two men alerted a drug task force consisting of DEA agents, NYPD and State Troopers to react, leading the suspects to flee the area only to get arrested later.

In Co-Op City, a fire broke out in an apartment building injuring four children.

In Woodstock, a raccoon was found wandering on the tracks of the 6 train line.

Staten Island

In Clifton, a 55-year-old woman who was walking to a late evening prayer meeting around midnight got jumped from behind by a man who placed her in a chokehold, then savagely beat her up, dragged her on the ground and threw her against an iron gate and cracked her head open. While she was bleeding, the man tried to silence her as the woman defended herself, causing him to run away.

While at the hospital, cops showed up to question the victim but she couldn’t recall if they actually asked anything to her and she found out the case wound up being closed a week after her attack.

The cops eventually arrested the suspect on Jan. 28, over 3 weeks after the attack. Because two days after this arrest and during that long time span while he was on the loose, a 69-year-old was murdered in Stapleton and found dead inside a house and this guy is suspected in this case because of a video capture of the suspect holding her arm and bringing her inside there. The deceased was also brutally beaten, and there is footage of the man leaving the premises by himself.

Now it turns out the initial earlier brutal assault case was marked closed because of a clerical error made by an city worker filing it at the 120 Pct. and the police sergeant working the desk allowed it to pass even though the detectives assigned to the case never interviewed the assault victim. Asked about how this incompetence that might have cost a woman her life, Chief Terrance Monihan gave thoroughly tone-deaf excuses of “administrative errors” and it “happens everywhere in life.” And also “(It) probably should’ve been caught then but it wasn’t. Now we’ve got to look what could have been done to shorten that time span, were there any systematic errors, any personnel errors.”

“They see, wow, this case shouldn’t be closed, it should be open,” he said. “They reopen the case and send it up to the detectives for investigation.”

NYPD Commissioner O’Neil “This is a terrible tragedy, so we’ll be taking a look — a total look –at it.”

Yeah, keep looking chief and commissioner. Wow, hopefully no one else will perish or crippled the next time you all suddenly realized you fucked up.

In Westerleigh, a 91-year-old man got killed when he got hit by an approaching car as he was crossing the street with the light still red.

In Donghan Hills, a woman snatched a dog off the stoop that was waiting to go back into his house.

In Port Richmond, a man driving drunk crashed into a house and ran away, leaving his drunk passenger to get arrested after he tried to get away but crashed it into a grassy knoll.

In West Brighton, a man was murdered in his apartment by as friend of his after meeting up with him at barber shop and had an argument when the victim asked his friend for money. The murder victim reportedly texted his mother on his phone as he was about to get killed.

The suspected killer and his girlfriend were caught on surveillance video dumping a bag and blood stained clothes in a dumpster by an apartment complex in New Jersey. The woman turned in her boyfriend to the cops after reporting a false emergency even though he physically attacked her in a domestic dispute. The suspect was brought to the stationhouse where he is claiming innocence and that he was being coerced to admit the killing by police interrogating him.

Further police investigations in search of the victim’s body also searched a construction company lot with a history of building violations in Port Richmond owned by a man who let the suspect live in an apartment building he ran and is now also suspected for aiding and abetting the ditching of the body, and ended in a landfill in Pennsylvania.

And this post ends with the bizarre, peculiar and improbable death of the Saudi Arabian sisters, who were being demanded by their nation to return home and who were found dead duct taped to each other by their wrists and ankles by the Hudson River in Riverside Park in December was ultimately ruled a suicide by this city’s medical examiner. So that’s the end of that. Well, the Sauds do invest in a lot of tech companies operating in your city and we certainly can’t disrupt that or upset them with murder conspiracy theories.

And it also should be noted that the killer of Brandy Odom, who butchered her and left her severed remains in plain sight on the paths in Canarsie Park 10 months ago is still lurking around.

 

 

New Bad Days 46: Like It And Learn To Love It, Rikers Island Shutdown Is Underway As It Was Announced 60 Hours After A Group Of Five Gangbangers Crippled A Correction Officer; A Class Size Group Of Kids Beat Down A Homeless Man On The A Train; A Dead Baby Abandoned In A Park; Two Women Beat Down A Pregnant Woman And Slam A Door On Her Feet; Rap Crew Films Shitty Video And Shows Off Their Stash While Imprisoned; Super Crazy Guy Jumps Roofs In Bed-Stuy And Multiple Random And Intentional Slashings And Deadly Domestic Disputes.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/rikers1.jpgRikers Island, pariah government center on scrumptious speculative real estate.

From the elected denizens occupying City Hall, they have begun the dizzying ill conceived official program to shut down Rikers Island and transfer all convicts present and future to four jails in the boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Manhattan. But not Staten Island, because supposedly no one commits crimes there.

This is where the Mini-Rikers will be:

  • Manhattan Detention Center, 125 White Street, Manhattan, 10013 (The Tombs)
  • Brooklyn Detention Center, 275 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, 11201
  • Queens Detention Center, 126-01 82nd Avenue, Kew Gardens, 11415
  • NYPD Tow Pound, 320 Concord Avenue, Bronx, 10454

This transition is suppose to take a decade or if crime drops first. But apparently these fauxgressive hacks aren’t even going to wait for the latter, especially now that Gov. Andy has decided to up the ante with his jackass boisterousness and wants Rikers shut down earlier than that.

Mayor de Blasio and Speaker Corey Johnson announced an agreement today to move forward on closing Rikers Island and creating a smaller, safer and fairer borough-based jail system. Together with the Council Members representing these areas, the Mayor and Speaker have agreed to a single public review process for four proposed sites in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens. These sites together will provide off-Island space for 5,000 detainees, and will include the three existing DOC facilities in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, as well as a new site in the Bronx located at 320 Concord Avenue in Mott Haven.

“This agreement marks a huge step forward on our path to closing Rikers Island,” said Mayor de Blasio. “In partnership with the City Council, we can now move ahead with creating a borough-based jail system that’s smaller, safer and fairer. I want to thank these representatives, who share our vision of a more rehabilitative and humane criminal justice system that brings staff and detainees closer to their communities.”

“Today is a historic day, as we are yet one step closer to closing Rikers Island.  The New York City Council is proud to have spearheaded the historic Close Rikers movement by creating the Lippman commission and passing legislation enacting many of its recommendations. The Council has also funded innovative programming to keep cases out of the criminal justice system altogether, such as the CLEAR and HOPE programs, which provide treatment instead of incarceration to those with substance abuse issues. We all know that closing jails on Rikers means opening more humane, community-based facilities elsewhere. I am proud to stand with my Council colleagues and thank them for their support on this crucial issue. I look forward to working closely with Mayor de Blasio, my Council colleagues representing these communities, and the communities themselves in finally achieving our shared goal of closing Rikers Island,” said Speaker Corey Johnson.

The Office Of The Mayor

This is being done because the violent environment and corruption in Rikers has become too endemic. As opposed to the equally well know graft in the city and state government high offices for a century and at a pinnacle today? Is this really what voters, meaning the less than 25% who showed up to elect these dusted democrats, really asked for from them.

What are the costs going to be to retrofit those four jails and how they are going to manage to fit all those prisoners and even staff. Especially what the speculative costs will be to convert that garage in the Bronx into a functioning high security apparatus. Most essential is how this goal of 5,000 convicts going to be accomplished to justify these transfers.

As simplistic and cynical as it sounds, which this utopian program resembles the former in spades, the only way this can be achieved is by not convicting anyone who commits crimes it seems. Which de Blasio has already assured with recent accusations by a police captain of stations lessening crime charges and the recent and similar doctoring and reclassifying of crimes committed at homeless shelters

As for sounding like the latter, it has been known for a few years that the Gentrification Industrial Complex are salivating at the prospects of all that scrumptious real estate waiting to be taken. Even the Corrections Officers Union President Elias Husamudeen smells a rat and sees this for the fauxgressive ruse it is. Although coming from the namesake of the commission report that inspired the Rikers shutdown, Johnathan Lippman, it ain’t like those interested in all that city property are shy about their passively heinous ulterior motives masking as a humanity cause:

…former New York State chief judge Jonathan Lippman, who heads the New York City Council-created criminal justice reform commission that oversees the Rikers-study committee, said it’s only natural to explore “potentially doing some of the things we’ve done with other vacant, large pieces of land, whether it be benefiting public health, education, research institutions.”

But he also sought to emphasize, and then re-emphasize, that real estate is in no way the central focus of his committee.

“At the outset, let me say that the future of Rikers Island as a physical location follows—and certainly doesn’t precede—improving our jail system,” he said.

“The political center of this will be about how we make the system more humane and just,” he said, “and at the same time recognize that you do have a very strategically placed and valuable piece of real estate there that could have a multitude of public policy purposes to develop it.”

None of these elected idiots surely not have thought through this but predictably are following de Faustio’s (bottom) line. Particularly Speaker Corey Johnson who in just a short month after exhorting that he was going to be a bulldog critic and a check on the mayor’s machinations and decisions has devolved into the typical partisan loyal neoliberal lapdog he is. And Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz who has officially thrown her hands up and quit and gave her approval, selling out her constituents and her credibility.

While we all want to live in a city or even a world without crime, this program is being foisted on the public without a clarified thought or what the ramifications might be or how much the goddamn new Mini-Rikers are going to cost.

And one huge fact is if that when this transfer officially begins, will that endemic violent and corrupt prison culture will carry on in the new jails or will exacerbate. Because this is clearly not going to happen overnight or most certainly, well, never.

Because in Rikers Island, a correction officer was attacked and beat down by five prisoners as a guard in the same room just stood there and watched and did not help his fellow officer, who wound up with severe spinal and neck injuries from the savage gang attack. The first one who barged in the room planned the premeditated the attack during a phone call according to another inmate.

We shall see how this shit enfolds. This post illustrates that this isn’t starting off well.

My President Is Irrelevant

snapshot“You’re on, dummy” Dotard J. Trump mentally prepares his twitter insult to a dictator and his threat to destroy a country.

What a last couple of weeks for Figurehead Donald Trump. For it might be the most significant time he has spent in his elected position and just may be, with his attempts at conveying leadership and shaping society and the world condition via his jackass social media vomiting, the final defining moment of his current stature.

My president is irrelevant.

The first sign was at the United Nations. There was considerable dread about his first address to the assembly and he did not surprise anyone or presumably himself. In a speech written by his young bald asshole ward Stephen Miller, who for some reason still has a job in this administration of chaos, he declared war on North Korea. Simple as that. He declared war and guaranteed destruction on a nuclear armed nation with a population of millions. He declared war and has put 25 million lives at risk, just hours after Congress approved 80 more billion dollars to fund the Pentagon this year and 700 billion dollars total towards the decade, which already hogs most of the nation’s budget. On a platform that usually requires tact and measured words, he called Kim Jong Un “rocket man”, which may be the first time in history where a leader used a juvenile insult on a rival sovereign leader and is the second time that Elton John’s classic song has been devalued. (We all know who destroyed it first)

Figurehead Trump, and whoever is advising him (no one), must have thought that threatening North Korea was going to rattle the nerves of the pudgy wunderkind leader Un, but all it did was make U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley anxious. For the whole 40 minutes during the speech, she had a look on her face that was nervously anticipating the dreadfully fateful moment of the declaration of war as she was easily distracted and seemingly more interested in the amount of people walking away during the speech. The exasperated migraine expression on chief of staff John Kelly couldn’t be more apropos of the population that is sick of seeing Figurehead Trump making our country a laughing stock.

Chief Of Staff John Kelly goes “DOH!” as does the general public.

Besides the aforementioned insult and the world endangering threat, the speech was mostly know-it-all condescension to the other nations for not contributing much, which although not being sympathetic at all to them, it’s not entirely their fault when the ol’ U.S.A. M.I.C. is the largest military in the world and it’s combined human and firepower  matches the amount of over 20 to 30 nations, and it’s actual budget is bigger than the other 7 superpowers combined, which includes Russia and China. And he also found time in the end to threaten Iran, which responded with missile testing of their own. Figurehead Trump looked and sounded slovenly and left the majority of the crowd bored and unimpressed, even after the threat to attack North Korea, it resembled the cartoon character Peter Griffin when he demanded respect from the UN for his accidental sovereign nation backyard.

The result of this shit talking by the overachieving mook from Queens just riled up his rival despot even more, to the point where Kim even engaged in the verbal snapping by referring to our president as a dotard. A dis that not only is surprisingly apt but actually syncs well with Trump’s birth name, making it easy for his domestic critics from DC to the billions of trolls worldwide on social media. Dotard Trump. Wow, it just glides off the tongue like eating a Carvel sundae. And just as fattening. And it surely will unite the NK masses to rally behind  Kim, because there is nothing that will bring out national pride like threatening to totally destroy a country of it’s citizenry and their leaders, no matter how oppressed or starving they are.

Figurehead Trump, being a former failed casino magnate with the instincts of the shittiest chronically addicted gamblers, decided to let his divisive banter ride as he addressed a crowd in Alabama in his still in-effect MAGA campaign tour by peppering his speech with a warning to NFL players to stand for the national anthem, in a reference to unemployed and blackballed player Colin Kapernick’s silent protest last year. Trump decided to pander to the barely audible crowd/his base by grossly generalizing any player that shows solidarity to the banned QB as a son-of-a-bitch, punctuating it with his old shitty show catchphrase “you’re fired”.

The league responded in kind and in droves, which included all of Trump’s billionaire team owner donors.

https://media1.fdncms.com/arktimes/imager/u/original/9856461/screen_shot_2017-09-24_at_11.58.38_am.pnghttps://tribwxin.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/gettyimages-853036826.jpg?quality=85&strip=all&w=2000

It’s like the NFL came to the realization in unintentional homage of the classic poem during the Nazi siege of East Europe, “First they came…“. First Trump came after the Mexicans, and they said nothing because the NFL doesn’t have any mexicans playing pro football. Then Trump came after the protesters, but they said nothing because the NFL wasn’t protesting his campaign but donating to it. Then Trump came after the women who criticize him, but they said nothing because they don’t have a uterus or a pussy to grab. Then Trump came after the NFL and it’s brand and the league just collectively said “hey Trump is trying to wreck a billion dollar industry and one of our national pastimes, fuck this asshole!”

The solidarity against Trump’s fascist demand for jingoistic and blind loyalty spread to other sports, notably from a rookie catcher from the Oakland A’s with his teammate supporting him. And straight from the NBA, the game’s most elite and popular player Lebron James responded to Trump’s provocation and his petulant disinvite of the Golden State Warriors visit to the White House by referring to him as the classic of all insults as a “bum”.

During this humiliating nationwide dressing down of the virtual commander-in-chief, Hurricane Maria, the third major killer storm in barely a month, laid waste to the U.S. Commonwealth State and nation of Puerto Rico, which had it’s electrical grid wiped out with the passing of Irma just a few weeks before. Maria, with it’s 150 mph winds and incessant biblical downpours, left the streets and highways flooded and destroyed forestation. And it devastated the electrical grid that will leave most of the country without power for months.

The U.S. Commonwealth State of Puerto Rico did not get a response from Trump for days for he was so entwined in persuading professional football players to stand up for the anthem and persuading the owners to fire them for insubordination if they don’t. Which resulted in the citizenry starving and dying of thirst for lack of potable water and food, making it impossible to get such sustenance. And no way to get these items for the flooded roads made access to them extremely difficult and no electricity for them to cook or prepare items. Hospitals were also suffering from the lack of power, leaving thousands of patients lives in peril. Initial that came via the Red Cross was insufficient. And Trump did not send the military over in 5 days, and when he did they were understaffed. He also refused to lift the heinous Jones Act against shipping from foreign countries, despite suspending it to aid the city of Houston, Texas and South Florida to assure and hasten the repairs and aid to their citizens and infrastructure. And hundreds of shipping containers containing food, water and medical supplies were left immobile with it’s contents left to rot.

When he wasn’t bragging about the alleged fantastical response of aiding the nation, which the aforementioned facts clearly belie, Figurehead Trump was making a pathetic excuse for why it was quite difficult to get to U.S. Commonwealth Nation despite having the biggest Navy in the world. That it was the unfortunate fact that Puerto Rico is surrounded by big ocean water.

 

 

This pop culture reference might be stretching it, but Trump said this with the same speech pattern as the cartoon death metal band Dethklok in the first scene of their debut film “Blood Ocean”.

 

Anyway, the Mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, clad in fisherman’s overalls surveying the damage of her city waist deep in the polluted water, looking disheveled and like she hadn’t even showered, went on television to beg for aid that was not getting to her city and the nation as a whole and to refute the tone-deaf ignorant claims of Figurehead Trump and his Homeland Security patsy of the condition of the ravaged nation state.

https://media3.s-nbcnews.com/j/newscms/2017_39/2173166/170929-san-juan-mayor-ac-649p_b51bced00be8e86a1552493b84c3e0e2.nbcnews-fp-360-360.jpghttps://pbs.twimg.com/media/DK_-93hUMAAiAJh.jpgHow a leader reacts.

So Trump reacted as is his nature of a man who had everything handed to him with a silver spoon and platter, and a deep seated contempt for minorities and did find time during his 50th weekend stay to the golf course he owns in Jersey to disparage her for not showing gratitude, accusing her of partisan political griping that he assumed influence her justified criticism, her not being able to lead and the nation for basically being lazy and not contributing enough. Which led to more universal condemnation of the spiteful Divider-In-Chief.

He finally showed up to Puerto Rico after 2 weeks to again, without the trophy he dedicated to them at the end of the Presidents Cup tournament and not even new caps to wear for the occasion, to once again praise his lousy response and the understaffed military personnel that got there too late and again insulted the people and the elected officials gathered at the conference by reminding them that their existence is costing the U.S.A. a lot of money (He probably deduced this from his avaricious economic advisors, neoliberal Gary Cohn and budget manager Mike Mulvaney, who are probably shitting themselves that they won’t be able to enact their American billionaire tax cut budget coming soon). Maybe he should give back the loads of money him and his son Eric got in the U.S. Commonwealth with his bankruptcy claim from his failed attempt to revive a country club with his brand/birth name on it. He also told a conference of elected officials that their fatality list wasn’t as bad as the death count in New Orleans (mostly the lower class 9th Ward town) after Hurricane Katrina, which simultaneously undermined and insulted them and their citizens and dementedly justified his willfully ignorant claims of his slow ass response and it’s good news story theory.

When he finally met Mayor Cruz, whose presence on the flooded streets is comparable to Rudy Giuliani’s on site action on 9/11/01 and should be Time’s person of the year, she kindly told Trump that it was about lives not politics and the Bum hastily backed up and ignored her. He spent the rest of his brief time chucking paper towels in a room in a peculiar video with maybe the only group of citizens happy and impressed to see him. No word on the brand of these towels or their ability to absorb.

After this deplorable hat trick of threatening to destroy a nation and it’s people; trying to control the beliefs and deny the freedom speech of athletes and you, the people; and his blatant indifference to a nation of people in desperate need, he did not intimidate Kim Jong Un and North Korea and possibly gave them an advantage in a new cold war, and turned Colin Kapernick into a civil rights icon, and Mayor Cruz into a worldwide sympathetic figure and hero, which she certainly is.

And even his Secretary Of State, Rex Tillerson, cannot even contain his rage and emotions by referring to Figurehead Trump as a Fucking Moron who speaks for himself and not for the country, the government and you, the people.

He has no credibility, or dignity, sense of decency or reason. All he has is his fucking twitter to get him by and his undeserved title that you, the people gave him by believing him and voting for him. Whose support for him is now thankfully waning. He will not be redeemed and it looks like he wouldn’t want to be. All he wants is to further enrich himself as now he gets to work on the heinous national budget for billionaire tax cuts for greedy dotard bums like him. That’s all what he’s and what this presidency is about.

As for everything else, his influence and impact and all the words that come out of his halitosis mouth and from his little stubby doodle fingers is jack shit. The President is fucking irrelevant.

 

The Gentrification Of A Beach And Federal Park Part II And III: It’s Failure And The Ludicrous New Effort

493The screen and seating areas. Pathetic.

Riis Park, Gateway National Park, Rockaway Beach, Queens, N.Y., U.S.A.

Here is part one

Rockaway Beach, the biggest beach in the greater N.Y. area and arguably the east coast, immortalized in song, and thanks to moneyed interests whom are persistent, oblivious and crass, ripe for picking.

479.jpg

There they go and went again. This is second year in a row that the Central Park Conservancy, Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Rockaway Artists Alliance attempt to remake/remodel a beach for the bogus rationale of having a movie night in a park, a gimmick that has seen widespread popularity in the past few years in parks in this city and other major cities across the country. The reason for this alleged philanthropy is to bring vibrancy, diversity and revitalization to the beach, which was rocked by Hurricane Sandy 6 years ago wherein this particular spot was used as a landfill for all the debris and damage from the devastating fires of Breezy Point and the destruction of half of the original boardwalk eastward.

Riis Park, known as the “people’s beach”, designed by the notorious city planner, architect and segregator Robert Moses, is mostly visited by Blacks, Hispanics (ranging from various nations), even Russians and gay people (the gay community has a long history with this beach). It is still, as it always was, visited by millions of people of all races and nationalities. The need for diversity and vibrancy is in fact, moot and redundant.

Here was the turnout of their “film festival”, which consisted of one movie,”School Of Rock”.

574

Less than hundred people sat down on the dirty sand for 2 hours to watch a movie on what looks like a giant raft or the bottom severed off a bouncy castle, which are tied down with cables and looks a bit perilous. The audio was horrible because of the consistent gale force winds which should be expected since it’s by a town known as the aforementioned Breezy Point.

Meanwhile by the bazaar, the restaurant was shut down and all the attractions bailed out leaving the boardwalk bare except for a makeshift stand taking donations for the former mayor’s philanthropic organization who along with the brass at Gateway thought this was a smashing idea again. This time with lower turnout than last year.

This festival is happening in congruence with the daily beach bazaar going on by the parks toilets, which is being run by some perpetually failing event planners and promoters from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, after their original space shut down, were awarded a 3 year contract from the National Parks Service promoted by a semi-major local newsblog who are friends of theirs, to bring what one of the organizers claimed, to bring “Brooklyn” to Queens (not that condescending or insulting, but they are invading hipsters, and as the record shows, useful idiots for gentrification).

Although one concession stand did remain open and was just as vibrant, although in competition with the RAA, Bloomberg’s and the Central Park Conservancy’s second vain and sad attempt to revitalize the beach. And it was the beach bazaar’s star chef Whitley Aycock. While the movie was running, Mr. Aycock was blasting music from his stand and drowning out the audio from the movie as if the wind wasn’t enough. And continued to do so in spite of complaints from visitors and park management.

The following week at the bazaar, Whitty was blasting some music that was quite vulgar that offended passerby. When one person requested that he maybe should play something else, Whitty proceeded to pump up the volume out of spite, leading him to get ejected by the folks of Gateway and begrudgingly his Riis Park Bazaar admirers, for the rationale that it was a “family beach”.

Well, they should have thought of that before the folks they awarded that contract to who then decided to hire this guy to run his concession stand of overpriced and little pizza pies to begin with. Mr Aycock has been wreaking havoc for a few years running a joint with a hedge funder in Rockaway Park and at the now shuttered Playland Inn.  After trying to run a conventional pizzeria, he started yelling at customers, mostly the area black kids from the neighborhood and changed his format to whole pies at upscale prices, and continued to be a cantankerous sore to his new clientele which had a pervasive influence on his equally surly and pompous staff. As time went on, and a few more hipster themed barstaurants opened up, Aycock became quite the habitual criminal. He grew pot inside his restaurant, which drew attention of the police station 2 blocks away, and tried to convince/fool two patrolmen that it was just herbs for his overpriced dining fare and wound up getting arrested. Reportedly, the staff and some customers came to his defense by actually getting physical and obscenely yelling at the cops as they were frogmarching his ass out the door. Imagine if that happened at a restaurant with Black or Spanish people.

Things continued to get worse, since being a flaming diarrhetic asshole does not make for good business acumen and his investors attempts at gentrification with their arty hotel did not get any patrons except for homeless people for a little while, his pizza place shut down, leaving him temporary no place to create his revolutionary pies. The day he closed, he left a message for the fine folks in the community who just couldn’t appreciate his talent nor his putrid existence.

 

A few days later, Aycock showed up at his former digs with a forklift and was busted breaking and entering into his old restaurant trying to steal the oven by destroying the wall in the back of the building. Then he had the nerve to sue the proprietor by claiming ownership of the oven.

After this recidivist juvenile delinquent behavior, which would have landed anyone else in Rikers, he was approached by  Gateway and the Riis Park Beach bozos and was contracted to cook for the bazaar and open his new place, despite the fact that it was October and the event was supposed to end at the official end of summer. But Gateway decided to let it continue through the cold seasons and early spring with this menace working in their kitchen working aside a ridiculous craft beer and cocktail bar beside them. These creative types were basically given a place to hang out for almost a year despite making no business or money for the park and beach. A veritable tax payer funded social club.

The Riis Park Bazaar is a big colossal joke and a failure. It does get patrons, the dopes who wait on line for food that are quite ubiquitous in the now tony parts of Brooklyn but not enough to truly influence a massive dramatic change in scenery and demographics. And the performances they have there is barely audible because of, well the friggin’ wind makes the acoustics there lousy.

Mostly and historically, the majority of people that go to Riis bring their own food, beverages and entertainment. Mostly, nobody gives a damn about this bazaar, and are clearly not intimidated by it. And the set up of this is clearly seen as an obvious farce and the ruse that it is.

So much for bringing “Brooklyn” to Queens. Mostly, so much for a pathetic lame attempt bringing the gilded age, disposable income, frivolous spending, obnoxious, entitled hipster lifestyle to spread across the beach in the hopes of turning it into the Hamptons with a more convenient commute.

But apparently, the national parks service to privatize parkland and beaches is not over. Now there is a new and preposterously dumber and scarily more powerful invader. Starting today, Gateway now will like to present the new vibrant movement for superfluous revitalization-“Glamping”.

Yes, Fort Tilden, which for the past 3 years has been inundated with the hipster demographic they prefer whose access to the beach as been aided by extended and shockingly consistent bus service from the gentrified nabes of Brooklyn and burgeoning gentrifying nabes in northwest Queens with the Q35 and now with the new ferries in an area not even disclosed by Gateway or even on the organizers bland website for the money pissing bargain of $200 or $250 dollars a night, you can rent a tent on the sand with encroaching and unpredictable tides and sleep in a queen size bed with rugs and furniture. Amenities include continental breakfast, campfires, use of bicycles, actual butler service and s’mores.

This is not only insane, no, this is only insane. And lookie here, some of these sponsors have actually done event work in the Hamptons.

I have a line for the existence and the mental malaise and utter willful insensitivity that inspires this creativity and that is “this is why Trump is president”. It takes some new significance considering that he dedicated his presidential salary to the national parks dept. which are dwarfed by the looming cuts in next year’s fiscal budget. Although to be fair, this glamping thing has apparently been going on for a while, even under Figurehead Obama. So chalk up another lame contribution and rotten asset from the former first black president.

While this is going on, how are they going to secure the grounds? Will extra security in the form of state police and park rangers be deployed there as personal security or will these event planning assholes have their own security contractors? Especially since the “guests” will be there all night. What about lifeguards, which are already understaffed throughout the Rockaways?

And of course, there is the major concern about the forces of nature. As mentioned before, this is the windiest part of the beach and the waters here are hazardous even during the day.

Being that it will be there for a month, who knows what will happen and what kind of environment it will be for other visitors to Fort Tilden or even east at Riis. But this concept is so ludicrous and so similar to criminal abomination of the Frye Festival that it’s destined to fail as well. But the fact that money and effort is being spent like this to change the outlook of a public beach is just horrendous, immature and spiteful.

I guess the natural gas pipeline that was dropped into the ocean a few years ago is not paying any dividends, for it was actually the only new infrastructure that was installed in the last few years. And the classic bathhouses and former diner and lodge on the Riis boardwalk has not got any buyers yet and is now basically a piss room for people waiting for the bus to arrive.

This is just another sign of the times. It’s the bastardization of doing something normal and routine like enjoying a day at the beach and trying to make a gross profit from it and trying to disenfranchise people of that vibe. There is really no need for these entrepreneurs or “creators” and “makers” as they lamely think of themselves. For they are not contributing anything to these locations and are forcing these lifestyles on people. Especially the motherfucking sponsors of terraglamping, one of many heinous portmanteaus foisted on this revolting zeitgeist from the sharing economy. These people continue to get rejected, mocked and reviled by the citizenry and they still persist.

The message can’t be more transparent, they need to get the fuck out for the good of society and humankind.

 

 

 

 

 

Senior Editor And Daughter Of The Owners/Publishers Of The Washington Post Throws Fucking Obscene Lavish Party In The Hamptons.

https://hollywoodonthepotomac.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/The-Trumps-with-Lally-Weymouth-pre-dinner.jpgHello, Lally Weymouth. By herself and with Figurehead Donald Trump and his wife Melania in 2011. Old friends.

 

 

Last Saturday, the divided and distracted people of this nation had officially become a sideshow when this event happened in Southhampton, Long Island, N.Y.

On that day, this country had become another interdimensional colony from another realm when this party collective of widely diverse supposed ideological differences optically feuding with each other came together for the hostesses pre-birthday and upcoming movie release party of an upcoming potentially Oscar regaled Steven Spielberg film.

From the White House, super senior advisors to the President: Sort Of Secretary of State Jared Kushner and First Daughter/Lady and now seat filling de facto President Ivanka Trump, Chief Counselor, Goebbels reincarnate and bullshit artist Kellyanne Conway, unofficial Plutocabinet member Carl Icahn and deputy national security advisor Dina Powell. Senator and member of the new “resistance” Charles “Chucklenuts” Schumer . Billionaires and financiers for the partisan political establishment, Charles Koch for the right and George Soros for the left. NYPD commissioners and bitter rivals William “broken windows” Bratton and Ray “stop and frisk” Kelly. And various big name journos for the Washington Post, tasked with keeping democracy dying in darkness.

In these times of utter confusion, cynicism and abject cruelty among the citizenry, earlier revered by the inaugurated Trump as you, the people, this party cannot be more untimely, tone-deaf, insensitive and offensive. The Washington Post has been railing against the antics and widespread corrupt connections of Figurehead Trump for the past year and a half with such zeal that that at times most of their reports had to be corrected for missing major facts, contributing to Trump’s and the public’s disdain and his own desired physical abolishment for the proclaimed fake news medium. With this shindig, it’s clear to people why that may be and it should be clear now that Trump’s ongoing social media spats is just the same distracting fodder that he used to provide the WWE with in his time as a pro wrestler feuding with the Small Business Commissioner Linda McMahon’s husband.

This party, although obviously not the first of it’s kind if you just go on any digital search engine for images of our money betters soirees, is the 10th circle of hell manifested. This happening is veritable proof that life as we know it in it’s current form is a joke and a lie if you don’t have obscene amounts of wealth, whether earned or inherited (mostly the latter). These lavish party people don’t give a goddamn, a shit, a fuck or a flying fuck about the concerns and problems of the middle class and the working poor that they feign (with now underlying mockery and contempt) to represent and inform. As George Carlin once proclaimed and prophesied just a few short years before his way to soon death, “it’s a big club, and you ain’t in it”. A quote which may now have to be inscribed in the nation’s constitution.

This party makes Marie Antoinette’s notorious and dismissive words to the suffering proles in 18th century France sound like a charitable suggestion for single payer health care and affordable housing and free college for all. This event happened despite the acrimony and polarization going on in the streets and the justified fury of the people confronting their elected representatives at town halls.

This blatant display of apolitical crapulence comes on the heels of the recent shooting of Republican elected officials at a field during a baseball practice. Is this party what was meant about the bipartisan unity demanded by all those effected by that day of terror and by Figurehead Trump. And wouldn’t this party trigger and inspire another disgruntled mentally ill citizen to consider this a proper target for his or her sense of immediate vigilante justice?

Mostly, this party put together by a major publisher of journalism, by one of the giants of the fourth estate, flies in the faces and insults the intelligence of the public and the right to be informed. And solidifies the rotten state of class division and widening wealth disparity overwhelming towns and cities as public services are being denied them to enrich people like Ms. Weymouth and her wealthy sociopath guests with generous tax cuts.

Certainly, they all had a good time and will continue to do so, even as it comes at the expense of the people’s growing fears and the concept of reality. Unless something happens to make people like Lally think twice about her next gathering of uber-equals. Say a revolution. With that prospect, it’s more likely she will hire military contractors to fortify her next one.

 

 

 

And Now Another Word From Our Sponsors…

First Daughter Ivanka Trump visited Berlin's Holocaust memorial (above) during her first international trip as an official adviser to her father, who also delivered remarks at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum's annual Days of Remembrance event Tuesday.

First, whatever designer shades and coat presidential adviser/first daughter lady is wearing here as she so tenderly caresses a wall. This picture was taken at a holocaust center the Holocaust Museum in Berlin last week and may have been the most blatant glamorous vogueing ever by a (virtual) dignitary to a memorial site.

This was from a few months ago at the Nike flagship store on 57th street in Midtown Manhattan during the execution of Figurehead EP Trump’s travel ban of citizens from selective middle east nations. Nike got all their celebrity sports figures to pose emphatically somber to exploit the situation to sell sneakers. All of their photos were color manipulated so they all look like one united race to promote equality in solidarity with those victimized by the Trump’s unconstitutional policies and also in response to a lot of rampant bigoted attacks against Blacks, Hispanics, Middle Eastern, and Indian people at the time.

Nice sentiment Nike, maybe you can apply this universal sentiment to all those poor indigent people which includes children that stitches all those 100 to 500 dollar sneakers in penitentiary sweatshops in impoverished and economically polarized nations that you run and that all your endorsers wear professionally and rabid fans wait on lines for hours for. Maybe all those millionaire athletes that are so concerned in those racially hued photos might even want to donate some money and time to all those who give their feet comfort playing games in their chosen professions…

…I tell you it ain’t likely…

 

CONYgate: Mayor De Blasio And The Mentally Ill Plans Of The Gentrification Industrial Complex

Mayor Big Slow Shit Show. Perpetrating a fraud in plain sight. That’s the next mayor to his right, PA Letitia James

Inside Mayor de Blasio’s $4.3M scheme to target big donors doing business with City Hall

Two grand juries hearing testimony linked to criminal probes of Mayor de Blasio’s fund-raising tactics

It’s about damn time. It was way overdue especially since this is in addition to three other scandals that him, his appointed minions and his in-house quasi- 501 (c) (3) PAC, the Campaign for One New York are embroiled with. Although our supposed liberal and progressive but borderline sociopath mayor thinks whatever glaring loopholes he thinks there are in the laws regarding fundraising absolves him from any criminal charges or accusations of corruption. He may have a point considering the Citizens United decision, but he fails to realize that he did this in government office, and it’s absurd that instead of governing the city he was elected to serve, he was more concerned soliciting campaign funds from greedy and predatory developers and doing it at the tax payer’s expense.

Make that the stagnant income taxpayer’s expense of the residents of the five boroughs. For because of this illegal slush fund, it’s led to more tumorous tower development and overvalued market speculation (or fabrication) that has ruined people’s livelihoods and polarized neighborhoods. Leading to this current malaise of unaffordability,  to choose between buying food or paying the rent on time, and living in constant fear of being a missed check or injury away from homelessness.

All this has been manifested by a person that’s supposedly liberal and progressive. The most heinous thing about this confirmed scandal is that CONY’s genesis was a program involving children, Pre-K. Preceded by a showy display of populism getting himself arrested at a hospital under threat of closing, which proceeded to anyway with diligent cajoling by Hilltop Advisors

There are so many revolting and avaricious characters here. Johnathon Rosen, who is practically the Blaz’s young ward, an intruder, non-appointed and non-elected, in the conference rooms of city hall making arrangements for his developer clients like Two Trees Management, and whose p/r firm BerlinRosen has become a lucrative powerhouse since de Blasio took office. Ross Offinger is another mark, the mayor’s gofer protege and telemarketer to the moneyed land plundering interests

The most sinister of all is the Fixer For One New York, Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen, former employee of Goldman Sachs, whose previous role at the notorious firm was urban development. Because of this expertise, after Ross would do the mayoral ordered soliciting and even before the corporate welfare handouts were dispensed, would meet and reassure their developer donors like Fortis and Forest City Ratner, the latter one of Berlin Rosen’s clients, with guaranteed land grabs and maybe schmooze them into providing a slight portion of their luxe behemoth towers for affordabilty for the hundreds of thousands of people in the lottery that need it. This woman is the prototype neoliberal. Here is a choice piece that might a bit incriminating

From New York magazine

“We’re getting shit done,” says Alicia Glen, the deputy mayor for housing and economic development. All of the city government’s resources have been deployed to serve the effort: zoning incentives, tax breaks, subsidies, land deals. The day I visited her at City Hall, she was finalizing a secret negotiation with the Blackstone Group, the world’s largest private-equity firm, which was seeking to purchase Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village. Glen was determined to extract concessions. “What could be more important than us putting a stake in the ground and saying that we are not going to stand by and just let this asset trade completely freely in the open market?” Glen said.

Since that time while these machinations and Glen glad handing and grease palming has took place, more towers have been constructed, rental prices have gone up as have property taxes for middle class home owners. The economically divisive urban planning set by the previous Mayor “Fun Size” Bloomberg continues to this day. And the homeless census now has 10,000 more. At slightly over 60,000, it’s the highest it’s been since the great depression.

Of course, upstate in Albany, the senate has been in-cooperative as well as Andrew “Mario’s son” Cuomo’s recent stinginess and vindictiveness delaying sending down crucial funds to alleviate this crisis. Which is probably what led De Blasio to launder CONY money to upstate Democrat senate campaigns in the first place. Which turned out to be for naught, since they both lost.

But that pales in comparison to the brazen idiotic proposal for the BQX trolley, which routes so happen to pass by the superficially trendy and niche areas that all these predatory developer owners have properties on, especially by high risk flood zone properties that the Walentas own under the Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges. Reportedly, millions of dollars have already been spent and wasted doing outreach and feasibility studies. Money that could have went to current affordable housing like NYCHA or maybe for a bus and a new route. Our caring mayor also used the filthy CONY lucre to promote himself and his family and to pathetically campaign in Iowa for the failure, Manifest Hillary Clinton.

We will all see, in probably a few days, if the Mayor and his deputies gets frog-marched from Park Row in handcuffs and these advisor roaches the same from their re-purposed factory modern offices. Although because of Citizen’s United, it not only ratified money as speech and corporations as people, but may have made honest graft standard policy.

It’s been 30 years since the city has seen a scandal of this magnitude, as documented in the classic book City For Sale , although Mayor Koch never got implicated in the crimes of his morally bankrupt peers (it’s a disgrace, but not at all inappropriate that the city renamed the QB bridge after him), but de Blasio will not be as fortunate, because being a former campaign manager, this is all on him. Like Alicia Glen, he has expertise in this, and evidently with the way he has governed, campaigning and fundraising is what he’s good at.

Which, makes all of them suspect and culpable. And deserving of the inevitable charging.

Go Get ‘Em Preet and show no mercy.
