JAMAICA HAS GOTTEN SO BAD EVEN THE DOGS ARE WEARING BULLET PROOF VESTS

With all the shootings taking place pretty much every week here in Jamaica, even your pet is not safe from a stray bullet. So might be the time to put your little pooch in a bullet proof vest especially with the “bullets are a flying” Jamaica summer.

Our little Teddy is modeling the latest in dog protection, a heavy duty, yet comfortable and stylish Kevlar vest for those “dog days of summer”.

You never know when one of those bullets from some of Jamaica’s knuckleheads might hit Fido.

BANG! BANG! BANG! ANOTHER PERSON GETS THEIR HEAD BLOWN OFF IN JAMAICA

Well, it looks like we are having at least one shooting where someone ends up dead every week,but we have shootings on a regular basis, but sometimes the bullets miss. The big difference this time, the shooting was not in South Jamaica, but in very nice Cambria Heights. Well, shit does spread all round if you don’t flush it.

From Queens Times Ledger:

A Bronx man was found dead in Cambria Heights Saturday night after he was shot in the head in an incident that police have since ruled a homicide, the NYPD said.

Police said they responded to a 911 call just after 10 p.m. Saturday and found 33-year-old Jason Bragg lying unresponsive in the roadway in front of a home on 219th Street near 121st Avenue. The victim had suffered a gunshot wound to the head and EMS responders pronounced him dead at the scene, authorities said.

An investigation into the incident led police to rule Bragg’s cause of death as a homicide, police said Sunday morning.

Many residents of the quiet southeast Queens street said they did not hear anything during the shooting, and some still had not learned Sunday morning that anything had happened outside their homes.

One homeowner, who lives next door to the house police said the murder occurred in front of, said he heard a loud pop around 9:30 p.m. When he went to his window a little while later, he saw a man later identified as Bragg lying in the street.

“I saw someone in the street dead under a sheet,” said the man, who declined to give his name.

The homeowner said police could be seen outside on 219th Street until around 4 or 5 a.m. Sunday, and the home the shooting happened in front of was still blocked off with caution tape around 10 a.m.

The next-door neighbor, who said he has lived in the area his whole life, said the neighborhood had improved greatly over the years and crimes such as this one had become a rare occurrence.No suspects had been identified and the investigation was ongoing.

Why does the Queen song, “Another Bites The Dust” keep popping in my head. Oh yeah, another head gets blown off in Jamaica.

So much for the conference last week at York College “Fulfilling the Jamaica Promise”, unless shootings, murders and garbage are part of it.

So how many shootings and murders this year in Greater Jamaica?  It seems to be at least one per week anymore.

This is what happens when a community allows people to do whatever the hell they want, a lack of any type of enforcement with quality of life issues, useless leaders and residents opposed to “Stop & Frisk”.

Have you noticed the increase of shootings since the “Stop & Frisk” ended? Not a coincidence. There is a reason certain communities should have Stop & Frisk and the Wild Wild West Jamaica should be one of them.

Wake up people, I mean what does it take. A little baby’s head blown off in front of his mother?

This community has some serious issues that go on again and again and again.

To use Councilman Ruben Wills words “It’s the people” and it certainly is, when you have bottom of the barrel people in your community, this is the kind of shit that happens.

 

THIS HAS BECOME ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR IN JAMAICA, BUT NOT IN CIVILIZED COMMUNITIES

In Jamaica we have a whole set of different rules compared to civilized communities . Well, really we here in Jamaica don’t even have rules, it is pretty much do whatever the hell you want and the bottom of the barrel people we have here know that and that is the reason we see the same old shit over and over again.

Garbage just being dumped on sidewalks and streets like this is some third world shit hole country. People parking their cars anywhere they damn well please like up over sidewalk over and over again.  People getting shot in the head, the most recent on Saturday night in Cambria Heights. You know, regular “hood” shit that has become the norm in Jamaica.

You know the deal, same old song stuck on repeat. By the way, that pink clothing bin, which has been tagged by DOS, has been sitting for over 30 days.

Face it, this community is DISGUSTING and each and every day, this is what we have to deal with on a regular basis. You cannot even go two blocks anywhere, with seeing this shit. And as long as we have bottom of the barrel people here, very little enforcement of quality of laws and elected leaders not doing what should be done, no fucking conference on “Fulfilling The Jamaica Promise”  will do a damn thing.

JAMAICA WAS INDIRECTLY MENTIONED ON BILL MAHER’S NEW RULES LAST NIGHT

Although Jamaica was not mentioned in Bill Maher’s “New Rules” segment last night on his show Real Time with Bill Maher, those from Jamaica and other parts of NYC recognized the photo in the segment immediately and knew it was from Jamaica.

The now classic photo. Andrew Hardy, the Jamaica "human pin cushion".

Mac The Knife

BILL:  “New Rule. Someone has to tell the dude who walked into a New York City McDonald’s chatting on a cell phone with a knife in his back,  there is  such a thing  as playing it too cool.”

Of course this would have been on Bill Maher, I mean I am sure this photo has become comic gold for many. It is a classic.

Thanks Jamaica for being so low-class ghetto beyond your wildest beliefs.

Just an ordinary day in the hood.

Just an ordinary day in the hood.

 

FLEA MARKET THIS COMING SUNDAY JUNE 29TH WHERE GARBAGE STREWN LOT WAS

 

To this day this vacant lot has not been cleaned.

2013

For several years, the vacant lot at the corner of Merrick Blvd & Foch Blvd directly across from Roy Wilkins Park, was a mess. Strewn with garbage being dump in it and around it, a fence collapsing and then just last year a huge amount of wood chips had been piled to the sky inside of it. Help Me Howard did a piece on it, as did NY1, Queens Times Ledger and others.

???????????????????????????????Now the Merrick Marsden Neighbors Association has put claim to it and this major eyesore has been cleaned up, no thanks to any of our leaders.???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????This coming Sunday, June 29th, the Merrick Marsden Neighbors Association will be having a garden community flea market from 11am to 6pm and if you swing by, you might even get a chance to see Teddy, who will make an appearance along with his mommy, who will be helping out at the Flea Market.

???????????????????????????????Also on that date in Roy Wilkins Park will be a concert event called “Groovin in the Park” with an assortment of reggae and  Afro artists. The “black sheep” appearing, or should I say “white sheep” is 80’s saccharine group, Air Supply. ???????????????????????????????

Very bizarre. When I think of  of “groovin” or reggae, Air Supply certainly does not come to mind. Should be interesting to say the least.

A WHO’S WHO OF CROOKED & USELESS LEADERS AT STREET NAMING CEREMONY

Wow, a who’s who of crooked and useless do nothing leaders, past and present, all that is missing is Helen Marshall, Ruben Wills and Shirley Huntley.

Talk about Jamaica’s political organized crime syndicate  “The Good Ol’ Boys Club”, the reason Jamaica is in the shape it is. Some of these folks have no damn shame, like crook Senator Malcolm Smith, who just recently had a mistrial for corruption charges, but will be rescheduled for January. What a bunch of clowns.

These leaders love those street naming ceremonies, they just don’t like to clean them up.

Community leaders joined elected officials in St. Albans Saturday afternoon to honor and celebrate the life of Dora Young, a political activist, veteran of the civil rights movement and prominent public servant.

City Councilman I. Daneek Miller (D-St. Albans) and former Deputy Borough President Leroy Comrie hosted an event at the Guy R. Brewer United Democratic Club, at 197-01 Linden Blvd., and commemorated Young’s memory with a new street sign at 197th Street, which read “Dora H. Young Way.”

“I am grateful to have been just a small part of this day in which we set forth [a way for] our community to appreciate and understand the legacy Ms. Young has left,” Miller said. “It will be recognized on this corner.”

Young, who died in 2011 at the age of 93, was remembered as a mother figure in the community and a role model who was instrumental in getting African Americans elected to city, state and federal offices.

“She was responsible of making sure that many ladies in southeast Queens became judges,” said Renee Bluford, president of the Democratic club.

Young was a Democratic district leader for the 29th state Assembly District at the time of her death.

She served as a deputy city clerk at the Marriage Bureau at Borough Hall for 25 years and was an executive member of the Guy R. Brewer United Democratic Club. She was also the first woman to serve as vice chair of the Queens Democratic Party.

Born in Winston-Salem, N.C., Young moved to Addisleigh Park shortly after she married Evie Young Jr. in 1949.

Young founded the Guy R. Brewer Learning Center in St. Albans and was an active member of several organizations promoting diversity.

“Our community is now a better place because Dora served for us,” said former Councilman Archie Spigner, who worked with Young for decades.

Among the elected officials who came to pay tribute to Young were former Borough President Claire Shulman, state Sen. Malcolm Smith (D-Jamaica) and Assembly members William Scarborough (D-St. Albans) and Vivian Cook (D-Jamaica).

Dancers and drummers from St. Benedict School of Dance entertained guests in between speakers. Young had donated generously to the school when she was still alive.

A number of members of Young’s family attended the ceremony, including her niece Brenda Carr.

“This is a really happy day for us family,” Carr said. “I don’t know how to explain how proud we are.”

19TH CENTURY HOMEBREWED BEER AT JAMAICA’S KING MANOR MUSEUM

If you are into beer, you might want to check out this event in Jamaica on Sunday, June 29th. The event is free, but reservations are needed.

Taste 19th-Century-Style Homebrewed Beer at Jamaica Museum

By Ewa Kern-Jedrychowska on June 26, 2014 2:29pm

Mark and Tess Szamatulski will discuss beer styles and local beer history this Sunday at King Manor Museum in Jamaica.

QUEENS — Homebrewing has been a growing trend in New York recently — but an upcoming event is set to celebrate the craft’s long history in the area.

King Manor Museum in Jamaica is hosting an interactive beer tasting and education this Sunday to reveal the storied past of the first breweries in New York, as well as the continuing art of brewing beer at home.

Participants will also get to taste various samples of homebrewed suds, including some that mimic the popular styles of the past, organizers said.

The 90-minute interactive program, “A Pint of the Past: Beer & Homebrewing in 19th Century New York,” scheduled for Sunday, June 29, at 3 p.m., will be presented by home brewing experts Mark and Tess Szamatulski, the authors of “Beer Captured. Homebrew Recipes for 150 World Class Beers.”

The Szamatulskis will talk about the history of brewing in New York and discuss beer ingredients and the brewing process. They will also offer several beer samples, organizers said.

“Mark and Tess Szamatulski are homebrewing experts and they will have some home brewed beer available for tasting,” Emily Melchin, of King Manor Museum, said.

“They will brew 19th-century style and contemporary beers so people will be able to compare them.”

According to the museum’s website, beer “has been brewed in New York since the earliest days of European settlement.”

The first known brewery in the area opened in Manhattan in 1612, the museum said. But suds were mostly homebrewed at first, until the brewing industry developed in New York in the 19th century.

It’s not known whether beer was brewed at King Manor, but according to the museum’s website, “in December 1816, Rufus King recorded in his account book that he paid ’27 Dol’ [for] Beer’ from a neighbor in Queens.”

For more information about programs at King Manor Museum, email programs@kingmanor.org or call 718-206-0545 x13. The event is free, but reservations are required. The museum is located at Rufus King Park on Jamaica Avenue at 153rd Street.
