Way to assume I live somewhere else like you guys who love to support a horrible mayor because it doesn't affect you daily.


If it's happening between 1am and 6am involving gangs then it should be a story.

Burning car fires was normal homie!

We had blackouts every summer, that was normal!

Graffiti - normal!!

Train with no lights - normal!

Crack vials in the street - normal!

If we can fix those days, then this s--t is nothing........

It is nowhere as bad as the 1980s, I'm sorry. This is why we still have a chance!
This is my point. No it's not as bad as when we were kids growing up with all of this, but if things continue going the way they are, we will start trending hard down again and see 80s in NYC in 2025-2030 very easily if we are not careful. Of course we are not there yet, but if we keep ignoring the trend we will be doomed to fail.

The major difference between then and now is that back then we had no Internet

No worries bro

It’s more than that—it’s also because turf wars don’t make much sense when rackets like gambling, prostitution and drug dealing are point to point make turf wars economically unviable in comparison.

Also, the effects of reduced lead poisoning and its effects on people over a probabilistic field in urban cities from leaded gasoline fumes concentrated by city traffic and similarly the increased access to contraceptives and abortion. The correlations are very exciting.

Sad night for Brooklyn, the worse is that there were about 100 officer patrolling in and around the event.

Just shows how ruthless some of these hood scum can really be, and the NYPD have to deal with them everyday.
