Feds to De Blasio: Drop Dead

 Mayor Bill de Blasio said he will fight Congress's decision to reimburse New York City for only 20 percent, or $7 million of the $35 million that the NYPD will spend to protect President-elect Donald Trump, his family and Trump Tower through the Jan. 20 inauguration.

NEW YORK CITY — He’s not taking no for an answer.

Mayor Bill de Blasio vowed Wednesday to fight Congress’ refusal to reimburse the full $35 million the NYPD is spending to protect President-elect Donald Trump and his family through the Jan. 20 inauguration — saying the paltry $7 million offered is insufficient.

“I’m disappointed. I think they should have done better by New York City but this ain’t over,” de Blasio said on the Brian Lehrer Show Wednesday.

“There’s plenty of time for us to recoup the money we deserve.”

A Republican-led panel added only $7 million to a short term funding bill to reimburse New York City for its costs on Tuesday. That would only cover 14 days of protection at Trump Tower at the current cost of approximately $473,000 per day.

Congress’ decision drew immediate rebuke from New York City lawmakers.

“I am extremely disappointed that the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government does not fully reimburse the people of New York for the unprecedented security costs incurred to keep the President-elect and his family safe between the election and his inauguration,” said Rep. Carolyn Maloney in a statement on behalf of the New York City congressional delegation.

“While I have no doubt that the NYPD will continue to do its part to secure the area around Trump Tower and meet the Secret Service’s high standard,  our great city shouldn’t have to foot the bill for these extraordinary security measures all by ourselves.”

Trump set up his transition headquarters at his penthouse residence on Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets and has been interviewing potential cabinet members there since he won the Nov. 8 election.

The NYPD and the Secret Service have developed a short-term security plan for the busy area which includes closing streets, creating a bag checkpoint and implementing truck restrictions. Two lanes of Fifth Avenue near Trump Tower are closed.

More than 100 officers have been deployed in the area, including members of the elite heavily-armed terrorism response team, 50 traffic officers and police officers on the rooftops of nearby buildings and around the perimeter of Trump Tower.

Much of the costs go towards paying personnel, specifically overtime, city officials said.

Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and Councilman Dan Garodnick launched a petition last week calling for the federal government to fully reimburse the city. House Democrats have called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio to not pay extra security costs once Trump is sworn in as president.

Mark-Viverito said it was “outrageous” that the federal government only wanted to cover a “fraction” of the security costs.

“New York City cannot single handedly shoulder the staggering cost of protecting the President-elect and his family,” said Mark-Viverito. “The President-elect and Congress must commit to repaying NYPD, the taxpayers, and our City. We will not accept anything else.”

Trump administration officials say he is likely to regularly spend time in his Trump Tower penthouse during his presidency. Trump’s wife and son are also likely to stay in the city through at least the end of the school year.

De Blasio said the NYPD will continue to provide protection for Trump, his family and Trump Tower as they work out a long-term plan for security. The NYPD is in “strategic discussions with the Secret Service” to develop that plan, he said.

The mayor said he will continue to push Congress for funding and was optimistic about the outcome because the city has been reimbursed for security costs under previous situations such as the visit by the Pope.

But he also called the Trump security scenario “unprecedented” for the city.

“In the meantime, we will provide the security, but I will not stop fighting until we get the reimbursement that we deserve and I remain optimistic that we will get it ultimately,” said de Blasio.

The mayor has been an outspoken critic of Trump and his policy proposals but he believes that the President-elect will ultimately agree with him that the city deserves reimbursement because he does not want to “burden” the NYPD.

“I think I have established that I have many, many differences with Donald Trump,” de Blasio said.

“But on this matter I believe he does love New York City. I believe he has tremendous respect for the NYPD. He sees every day, as does his team, the extraordinary extent we are going to to protect him, his family, his team and the building.”

STILL WAITING FOR AN ANSWER FROM NYPD, ELECTED OFFICIALS, COMMUNITY BOARD 12 AS TO WHY THERE IS NO ENFORCEMENT WITH AUTO BODY SHOPS & DEALERS PLACING UNLICENSED AND JUNKED CARS ON JAMAICA STREETS/SIDEWALKS

hillside-garbage12-4-16-006Now if you and I place our car on a sidewalk in front of our house, the lowly foot traffic officers would take out their pen and pad and slap a ticket on the car within an hour, hell, it does not even have to be on the sidewalk, just a tire on it. I ride my bike on the sidewalk on Archer Avenue since it is such a dangerous mess of cars, livery drivers, cabs, trucks and buses (not too mention such a narrow road for all the traffic), NYPD car pulls up to corner, gets out and hands  me a $50 dollar ticket.

YET, auto body shops have turned Merrick Blvd and the surrounding area into the new Willets Point, a junkyard for their cars placed on Merrick Blvd and the sidewalks and the surrounding streets in the neighborhood, along with broken glass and leaking fluids from cars. One day, I counted 100 junked and unlicensed cars on Merrick and surrounding streets between Liberty and 108th St. ONE HUNDRED, no kidding. Car dealers on Hillside Avenue with huge parking lots, place their vehicles and unlicensed vehicles not only on Hillside Ave, where they block buses during rush hour, but on sidewalks as well. In other areas of Jamaica, auto body shops do the same thing, like the one on Archer between 168th and 169th.  Readers from other areas like South Ozone Park and other parts of SE Queens have the same issue and have complained over and over to their precincts with absolutely not a damn thing being done.

This is not a grey area, this is black and white issue, it is ILLEGAL to place any vehicle on a sidewalk, which blocks pedestrians and forces them to sometime go into the street and it is ILLEGAL to place unlicensed vehicles or junked cars on public streets and sidewalks. On Merrick Blvd alone, this causes major traffic issues where one must converge to one lane because the other is being blocked by these cars.  THIS IS THE LAW, NOT an option and no grey area. YET, after countless documentations of this, countless filed complaints, NOTHING is being done and these unscrupulous businesses are allow to continue with the illegal behavior under the watchful eyes of elected officials, community boards and NYPD and have yet given me an answer as to WHY?  Not one person, not NYPD, not community board 12 and not any of our wonderful elected officials.

And this is not an appropriate response:

Thank you for contacting me. Your concerns and questions are of utmost importance to me. A member of my staff or I will be in contact with you
shortly to discuss your issue. If you require immediate assistance, please feel free to contact my Queens District Office at 718-454-0162 or my Albany
Legislative Office at 518-455-2701. You can also feel free to come in and speak directly with a community or legislative representative. For office
hours and directions, please visit Office of NYS Senator Leroy Comrie. Again, thank  you for contacting me.

I guess my concerns are NOT of the utmost importance because they WOULD REQUIRE SOMEONE TO GET OFF THEIR FUCKING ASS AND DO SOME WORK.

I have said this over and over again, someone is being paid off to look the other way, because 1) nothing is being done and the laws are not being enforced. 2) NOT one person has given me any kind of answer and no I don’t want to hear about “not enough manpower”. The ticketing fee alone makes up for any kind of manpower.

Or it could be that this area is not Forest Hills or Brooklyn Heights or Park Slope and is instead a community of color run by black political gangsters who obviously has not done anything to improve this community but instead have focused on street naming ceremonies and “free turkey giveaways”.  So being a community of color, there is no reason to really do anything. I mean do anyone of you have any pride, any shame that Merrick Blvd looks like shit. Hell, your precinct community board meets over in that area, you don’t see this or you don’t care. I mean I don’t see this shit on Queens Blvd in Forest Hills, so why should we see this shit here in Jamaica.

This is completely disgraceful and a continual slap in the face of this community of color yet again ignoring quality of life issues and properly enforcing laws.

BUT people want an answer and more importantly they want the LAWS to be enforced. And residents of Jamaica and some of you folks reading this, you need to contact NYPD and your local precinct, you need to contact your elected officials and you NEED TO DEMAND A FUCKING ANSWER and a SOLUTION. You fucking work for US, we pay your damn salaries.

MILLENNIALS AND YOUNGINS – YOU STILL NEED TO TAKE A SEAT WHEN IT COMES TO BABY BOOMERS BECAUSE YOU CAN’T HOLD A CANDLE TO US

Image result for baby boomer rule

Old age is the new “youth”. When my cousin who was 78 died, my mom at 90 going soon on 91 said, “My, he was young”. Yes, age is a number, and though us baby boomers have our aches & pains that we don’t always bounce back from quickly like we did, why we might fall asleep watching a night time TV show or movie and have to watch it about three times, while we may no longer be “idealist” (that is for the young) we have become “realist”, while us men may need to take the magic blue pill every now and then, we still are the top dogs and we plan on staying on top till the last baby boomer breathes his or her breath.

David Bowie, who died in January at age 69, put out an amazing album, “Blackstar”, two days before his death. Leonard Cohen, who just recently died at 82, had just put out his last album “You Want it Darker”, the amazing Sharon Jones (of the Dap Kings), who battled for three years pancreatic cancer and died last month, continued to tear up the stage up to her death that would put a healthy Beyonce to shame (and used no back-up dancers) put out their first Christmas album, “It’s a Holiday Soul Party” in 2015. Prince, another great one we lost this year, continued to tour and put out albums right up until his death. Bruce Springsteen, one of the most prolific song writers, at 67 performs amazing 4 plus hour concerts (hell you can’t put two of today’s folks to perform 4 hours combined). David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) at age 70 put out a great album this  year, “Rattle That Lock”. mary J. Blige, a youngster at 45, has 13 albums to her credit, including 2016’s “Strength of a a Woman”. The Rolling Stones, whose youngest member, Ronnie Wood, is 69, just the other day put out their best album in decades, the blues covers, “Blue & Lonesome”. The baby boomer musical performers don’t need fireworks, special effects or tons of back-up singers (all to hide today’s folks weaknesses and not make you feel bad for paying $200 for a concert ticket). And before Beyonce over talked about “Formation”, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Marvin Gaye, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield and Gill Scott-Heron were doing this many times over and much better. And while much of the music playing on radio today is crap, you need to look underground and across the ocean to find really good musicians because there are some good young folks out there. It just is that the airwaves are filled with mediocre talent who you can’t tell one person from another and it all sounds the same like it was made by a robot, well which pretty much is, with the same old producers on everything and with a click of a button to make Brittany Spears sound, well, the best for her is below average, even with computers.

Donald Trump, still unqualified to be our president, at 70 mopped the floor of youngsters like Mark Rubio, who is decades younger than Trump. Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton could put youngsters to shame with their grueling campaigns. Joe Biden is talking about running for President in 2020 at the age of 78 and he would be one hell of a president.

We still have the power. See if the Republicans will attempt to privatize Medicare or Social Security, the baby boomer will not tolerate it. Some of the best TV shows today are not about youngsters and while most of today’s movies are crap (half are animation, the other half comic books), baby boomers are still a force on the big screen. We are not like our parents, who had a hard time adapting to change. We have smart phones (not me, I think cell phones are dumb), we are tech and social media savvy. Myself, I am shy two years of 60 and did not bother with Facebook, Twitter or blogging, till I started Clean Up Jamaica Queens and then ran with it. I still don’t have a personal Facebook or Twitter page (I don’t feel the need to post a photo of me on Facebook sipping a Cappuccino at Starbucks or any other inane shit that nobody really cares about except the person posting that crap). Jamaica resident & community activist, Amy Anderson, born in the old Immaculate Mary Hospital, over 70 and still taking care of her block and giving do nothing elected officials her piece of mind.

So Madison Avenue, stop with your idiotic stupid commercials about adult diapers, sit-down bathtubs and other crap you are attempting to shovel down our throats because we are NOT being put out to pasture. And stop making actors in commercials talk to us like we can’t hear or are first graders. We see right through your shit and cannot be bought off as easily as Millennials or the younger crowd (not to say that all Millennials and young folks are whiny little self-indulgent brats walking around in a coma lead around by their cell phones and talking about how many fake friends they have on Facebook while watching brain dead shows like Keeping Up With the Whore Kardashian Family or the House Bitches of Atlanta).

So, take a sit Millennials, we AIN’T GOING ANYWHERE.

Yes, as I get older I realize a couple of things:

  1. Youth is wasted on the young.
  2. YOU are responsible for you own behavior and your own outcome in your life story.
  3. What people think or say about you, does not fucking matter.
  4. It’s all bullshit and the meaning of life is “you die”. Think about that one.

Now youngsters, go back to your cell phones, post a photo of you sipping a Caramel Light Frappuccino on Facebook or Instagram or whatever other kind of new shit is out there to show how self-indulgent you are, whine about “cyber bulling” and being so politically correct that if you say “rose colored glasses”you find that racist for using the word colored, complain about assaults against Muslims by others yet say absolutely NOTHING about the treatment of Muslim women by male Muslims (for fear you may be called “racists”) and thinking if you use Pandora (so lame) that you are in charge of picking your music.

Oh and young white liberals who live in Brooklyn Heights or other areas like that, you don’t get to make a comment about my rants living in Jamaica, until you fucking pack up your Louis Vuitton luggage and move to Jamaica,  because you are SO CLUELESS and living in your little white liberal bubble. But it “makes you feel good.”

The Daily News:

STASI: Joe Biden is the latest pol to show us that running for President is an old man’s game

boomers

Joe Biden suggested he may run for President in 2020, when he’ll be 78 years old.

(David Dermer/AP)

Old is the new black.

Joe Biden has just announced that he’ll probably run for President in 2020. Talk about hindsight — or bad sight — being 20/20. Old Joe (really old) will be 78 when he enters the White House — if, of course, he can beat that whippersnapper incumbent Donald Trump who’ll be a mere kid at 74.

Bernie Sanders, who achieved rock star status with youngs during his presidential campaign, did so at 75. The age of the majority of his supporters? Between 17 and 29. Too bad some of them weren’t old enough to vote for the oldest man on the planet, er, ballot, because he was a great candidate.

Hillary is 69 and Trump is 70 — and both have massive numbers of followers who range from half their ages all the way up to and well past them.

So much for the experts who think it’s millennials who set the standard and make the trends for everything that is and ever will be. Screw that!

boomers2Donald Trump proved the naysayers wrong as he won the White House at age 70.

(John Minchillo/AP)

In fact, while we’re at it, screw all those idiot advertising geniuses who think that people over 35 are too busy minding their bladders to waste time or money on anything but Depends. These blockheads must be getting their information from clueless pollsters and TV “experts” who were wrong about everything. They were gas bagging while senior citizens snuck in and took back the world.

It’s well past time they got their heads out of their glasses and looked up at the real world.

boomers3Bernie Sanders, 75, was a breakout candidate who was especially popular among young people.

(Nati Harnik/AP)

The millennial experts were especially wrong about 70-year-old Trump, who they said didn’t have what it takes to compete against younger candidates. Right. He destroyed all 9,000 younger candidates who ran against him — without getting out of breath.

If you’ve ever been on a presidential campaign, you know it’s months of 20-hour non-stop days and nights in every kind of weather, endless grueling speeches and appearances, no rest, and sleep just a memory of something you once did. It’s enough to destroy a 25-year-old, let alone people in their 70s like Trump, Sanders and almost-there Hillary. Except for a brief bout with pneumonia — which probably would have killed a younger person — Hillary was always refreshed and on top of her game.

boomers-4Hillary, 69, was always refreshed and on top of her game.

(BRIAN SNYDER/REUTERS)

Remember how Trump reduced 45-year-old Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, who looked like they’d gone 12 rounds with the Klitschko brothers when he was done with them. Bernie, too, withstood it all and never looked like he’d taken a punch, and neither did Hillary. Until she lost, that is.

One thing’s for sure: If 70-year-old Trump keeps doing the stuff presidents are not supposed to do — like calling world leaders without diplomatic approval — and making it work like the experts say it absolutely positively can’t, he’ll definitely be the 74-year-old on the ballot in 2020. And his opponent might be 78-year-old Joe Biden.

 

ANOTHER NOTEWORTHY LOCAL BLOG “IMPUNITY CITY” WORTH READING TO FIND OUT THE REAL SCOOP ON NYC BULLSHIT THAT THE REGULAR MEDIA (ESPECIALLY LOCAL) KEEPS IGNORING

Image result for real news for real people

The local media in SE Queens is atrocious at times, if they are not sensationalizing a story with screwed up facts (Queens Courier), pandering to local politicians (Queens Press, which Senator Comrie’s wife works for) or criticizing local residents when they complain about justified glaring ongoing quality of life issues not being addressed (Queens Times Ledger),  not hitting hard enough because they are afraid to offend (Communities of Color),  they are just not digging deep enough or following up on stories like why NYPD and elected officials are not addressing properly “illegal truck driving on residential streets ” or “auto body shops and dealers who place their junked and unlicensed cars all over public streets and sidewalks” or hammering hard all the crooked do nothing elected officials in the dirty Southeast Queens and. Sure they are fine to get a little overview, but if you are looking for substance or in-depth no holds barred reporting on issues that affect us regular folks, then time to go to local blogs like Queens Crap, the granddaddy of focusing on local issues, Progressive Queens, Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York, New York Shitty, Newtown Pentacle,and Project Woodhaven  to name a few. My morning starts off with going right to Queens Crap.

Well now there is another blog to add to this list and one that I have been waiting for, since I have been following comments on various sites by this person for some time. Always on the mark, highly intelligent and well read, plus an affinity for pop culture, this individuals blog is now here, which began in November, although from reading his comments for some time now, it was just a matter of time:

IMPUNITY CITY

which states “A weekly update on the myriad injustices and exploitations of sell-out elected officials, voracious multinational corporations, soulless manipulative lobbyist firms and individual craven corrupt recidividists with ruminations on culture decay and fond nostalgia.”

With a city that seems so out of control, where the inmates are running the asylum and nowhere is that more prevalent than in the Dirty Southeast Queens (which this individual coined), where local media rags like Queens Courier and Times Ledger just are not doing responsible in-depth reporting (with follow up) on the important issues of the day, where elected officials (both Republicans & Dems) have been feeding us bullshit for decades and where too many people are getting news from Facebook (Zuck should be ashamed of the whole ‘fake news” bullshit) and our next President, con man Trump, gets his news from “And I heard….” and is has a twitter addiction, it is great to be able to read another source that actually focuses on the issues at hand that affect our communities (and beyond) and tells it like it is with facts and reality and does not pander to elected officials or is afraid of rocking the boat. We are in dire times (which has been building for over a decade) and we can no longer count on especially local news to give us the REAL SCOOP and DIG.

BUT remember, it is good to read as much as you can from conservative to liberal and everything in between to get the whole picture and hear from those you may disagree with. Don’t just stay in your own little bubble.

WELCOME IMPUNITY CITY (great name).

FUNNY HOW COMPLAINTS OF STOP-AND-FRISK ARE ALWAYS IN SHITTY HOODS WITH HIGH CRIME – DAH!

Funny, how all the complaints about stop and frisk are in ghetto areas with high crime, places like Jackson Heights, Richmond Hill and Jamaica, the crap of Queens.

Do the math folks.

Then these same people will complain about high crime and nobody is doing anything about it.

NEWS FLASH, you can’t have it both ways. Improve your own hoods then and stop letting hood rats run all wild and doing whatever the fuck they want.

Now play the smallest violin.

From Queens Times Ledger:

Stop-and-frisk forum held in Jackson Heights

Tania Mattos (r) speaks during a forum held on the topic of stop-and-frisk at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights.

Members of the Jackson Heights community spoke out about their experiences with the NYPD’s controversial “stop-and-frisk” tactic, part of a series of community forums mandated by a 2013 federal court ruling that labeled the NYPD’s use of the practice discriminatory.

The New York City Joint Remedial Process hosted the event at the Jewish Center of Jackson Heights at 27-05 77th St. Saturday afternoon in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Community Affairs. Shira Scheindlin, the presiding federal judge in Floyd vs. City of New York, mandated in 2013 that as part of the remedial process community forums should be held to discuss potential additional reforms beyond the mandated reforms included in the court ruling.

Justice Ariel Belen, a former justice for the New York Supreme Court’s Second Department, was appointed as a federal facilitator for the process in November 2014. He discussed the storied history of stop and frisk in New York, speaking about how the NYPD needed to have a reasonable suspicion to stop someone, believing the person had committed, is committing or is going to commit a crime.

“What happened in New York City was not that at all,” he said.

About 85 percent of people stopped were black or Latino, according to the Joint Remedial Process, and the New York Civil Liberties Union reported that nearly nine out of 10 stopped New Yorkers were innocent, according to NYPD data. Belen concurred, stating that only 5 percent of stops resulted in an arrest. In 2011, the city recorded 685,000 stops.

Nilesh Vishwasrao, a representative for the Jackson Heights-based community group Desis Rising Up and Moving, told the forum he had been stopped and frisked more than 20 times, while Tania Mattos, a co-founder of Queens Neighborhood United, which works to halt the detrimental effects of displacement and police misconduct, detailed her experiences with NYPD officers.

“Unfortunat­ely, every time I’ve gone to the police, they’ve never helped me,” she said during the forum. “And that’s not how police/community relations should work.”

Mattos said the use of stop-and-frisk had decreased slightly in recent years, but she said there had been an increase in the use of surveillance cameras and vans. She suggested more investment was needed in the community in lieu of an increased police presence.

The Floyd ruling in 2013 included additional reforms, such as a monitored pilot program for NYPD officers wearing body cameras, as well as more training on implicit bias and better supervision, evaluation and documentation of recorded stops. There were 22,939 stops in 2015, according to a New York Civil Liberties Union analysis based on police data. The NYCLU analysis indicated 80 percent of people stopped were innocent and 83 percent of stops were conducted on black or Latino New Yorkers.

The Jackson Heights forum was one in a series sponsored by the JRP and the Mayor’s Community Affairs office, with one held in South Richmond Hill early in November. At the conclusion of the forums, Belen will create a report suggesting additional reforms that may help bridge the gaps between officers and community members.

 

 

THE RAG QUEENS COURIER GOT IT SO FUCKED UP ON REPORTING MAN WHO DECAPITATED WOMAN IN RICHMOND HILL

More fucked up reporting, this time the Queens rag, Queens Courier. Yesterday the Queens Courier reported of the killing and decapitation of a woman in Richmond Hill (http://qns.com/story/2016/12/05/man-charged-murder-nearly-cutting-off-girlfriends-head-richmond-hill/), yet they fucked up a simple thing such as facts. They stated that the victim was the girlfriend of the perp, but she was his wife.

From The Daily News:

Queens man arrested after stabbing wife to death with kitchen knife on street corner

richmond-hill

Rajwantie Baldeo was stabbed to death by her husband on the corner of 103rd Ave. and 124th St. in Richmond Hill.

(Facebook)

Police arrested a Queens man after he stabbed his 46-year-old wife to death — nearly decapitating her in front of witnesses on a Queens street corner early Monday, police said.

Prem Rampersaud, 50, surprised his wife Rajwantie Baldeo who had just left work at the corner of 103rd Ave. and 124th St. in Richmond Hill around 12:15 a.m. — confronting her about a man she had met online, authorities said.

Rampersaud slapped Baldeo across the face and choked her, before pulling out a long kitchen knife and stabbing her in the chest, shoulder and both hands, police said.

He then began cutting at his wife’s neck, police sources said.

Two witnesses who were passing by at the time told police they tried to stop the man, but that he didn’t even acknowledge them.

Rampersaud, kneeling down on one knee, kept on sawing, sources said. The witness told cops they could hear the blade scraping bone.

Reached by phone, the victim’s daughter told the Daily News that her father was a monster who often made ominous threats.

“My dad was a very bad person. My mom didn’t deserve to die like that,” said Shalini Ronaldo Ramjiawan, 30.

“He would say things. He always threatened he would kill mom,” she added.

Shortly before police and paramedics arrived, Rampersaud dropped the knife and walked away. He was taken into custody by cops a few blocks away on Liberty Ave.

His wife, whose name was not immediately released, was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, but could not be saved.

Rampersaud was arrested and charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

He told cops he became enraged after his daughter showed him a Facebook photo of Baldeo with another man.

Despite being married for three decades, the couple had only lived together a short while. Rampersaud had given his wife $9,000 to leave Guyana and move into his Jamaica home about a year ago, police said.

Baldeo apparently kept the marriage a secret among her peers.

Co-workers at The Oasis restaurant on Liberty Ave. near 123rd St., where the slain woman worked, said she tried to avoid him at all costs and referred to Rampersaud only as her ex-husband. And the resturant she worked at is in Richmond Hill (South Richmond Hill to be exact), not Ozone Park.

Damn, get your facts straight, it is not that hard.

No matter what a heinous crime in the dirty Southeast Queens.

“All I know is she said that if her ex-husband ever comes in looking for her, to not tell him she works here,” recalled Nazia Rajpaul, 25, a waitress at the restaurant.

Such a scenario became reality this past Friday afternoon, when a drunk Rampersaud showed up asking for her by the name of Christie.

“He showed up mad drunk,” Rajpaul said. “I wasn’t afraid, but he kept asking over and over for her. I just kept telling him she’s not here.”

Ramjiawan said Rampersaud was known to attack Baldeo when drunk.

The restaurant’s manager Shashi Sherman, 49, said he had to throw Rampersaud out.

“He had to be thrown out … I just told him to get out of here,” said Sherman.

The woman wasn’t at the restaurant at the time, but when she arrived later that night and learned of the incident, she was incredulous.

“Her reaction was that she couldn’t believe he would do that, that he would turn up drunk at noon looking for her,” Rajpaul said.

Police sources said Rampersaud visited a 99-cent store a day or two after that episode and purchased the kitchen knife he used to kill his wife.

Rampersaud’s landlord in Jamaica, where he was staying with a friend, said he was constantly paranoid Baldeo was cheating on him.

“He was always going on about how she was cheating on him,” said the landlord, who declined to give her name.

“He was jealous and delusional. They were getting a divorce.”

The landlord said Rampersaud had threatened murder in the past.

Rampersaud told her he would “kill (Baldeo) and then kill himself … if she’s not going to have me back he’s going to kill her so no one came have her,” the woman said.
