CRIME DOWN IN JAMAICA (THOUGH HOOD RAT GANG BANGERS ARE STILL THE MAJOR CULPRITS) & FORECLOSURES STILL AT ALL TIME HIGH IN THE JAMAICA AREA

So crime is down in Jamaica in the 103rd precinct district though most of this is due to the winter weather when crime tends to drop compared to the long dog days of summer when the hood rats run wild all over. While crime is down in the area the majority is still caused by hood rat gang members particular in shitty South Jamaica. And speaking of South Jamaica, this area still has the highest foreclosure in all of New York City. While so-called “leaders” want to blame predatory lenders (who are slime bags no doubt) and with the exception of a job loss causing one getting behind on the mortgage, too many people’s eyes were bigger than their pocket books and bought homes that they were in no way going to be able to make the monthly mortgage and that blames goes to the people who did not really think the process out.

So while predatory lenders take some fault,  the big problem were the homeowners who signed on the dotted line regardless of what the banks told them etc. Common sense, if you only make $50,000 a year, you don’t buy a $300,000 home or apartment, because how the hell are you going to make payments.  Yes, those financial institutions are predatory, but you can only be preyed upon if you let them. People must take responsibility for their actions and that goes for everything in life. Like if you treat your community like it is a garbage dump and have no pride, others will swoop in and take it from you. Enough of the blame game folks, cause that shit gets OLD FAST.

By the way what the hell was former councilman from Flushing John Liu doing at the 103rd precinct Community Council meeting. He says he came to talk about the incoming president, Trump, and the effects that it could have on communities like Southeast Queens. WHAT FUCKING EFFECTS, any damn effects and  issues in this community are due to the slobs, hood rats, gang bangers, criminals and crooked local elected officials for years and decades.  I mean Trump is not going to run or own Jamaica anymore than Obama did. Christ, talk about the “blame game”.

Crime Still Down, This Time Thanks to Weather

BY TRONE DOWD

Following an overall drop in crime during 2016, the 103rd Precinct was happy to report that 2017 is off to a similarly promising start.

Commanding Officer Inspector John Cappelmann gave the Precinct’s constituency the first crime report of the year Tuesday night, spanning the most recent 28-day period.

“Looking at the last 28-day period, we had a significant dip in crime, and we had some help from the weather,” Cappelmann said.

Cappelmann said that thanks to frigid temperatures and inclement weather in recent weeks, there has been a noticeable decrease in activity in the area. In fact, during the recent snowstorm on Saturday, he was proud to report that there were zero crimes reported during a 24-hour period.

“We are down about 33.8 percent in crime compared to the same 28-day period in 2016,” he said.

All index crimes were down compared to last year. Burglaries fell a whopping 42 percent, robberies fell 31 percent, felony assaults were down 30 percent, and both grand larceny auto and grand larceny fell significantly.

“We’re starting off the year great and we obviously want to keep it that way,” Cappelmann said.

One of the aspects that officers are trying to tackle in the new year is gang-related crimes.

Though crime was down, Cappelmann mentioned a significant noteworthy crime that occurred just before the 28-day period. On Dec. 1, along 91st Ave and Sutphin Blvd, police seized an automatic rifle from a man driving a large SUV, during a routine traffic stop.

“What was a Vision Zero Infraction turned out to be much more,” Cappelmann told the Press of Southeast Queens. “There was a large canvas bag sitting in the back seat. In it was a loaded AK-47 with what I believe was two or three magazines also filled with 7.62 millimeter rounds.”

The man was identified as a 50-year-old male named Mark Sanders of Brooklyn. Officers say that they have not been able to coerce a reasoning for his possession of the weapon, his intentions with it or why he was in the Southeast Queens area. He has since been arrested and charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

Following the crime report, the Community Council was paid a visit by former Queens councilman John Liu. Liu, who currently teaches finance at Baruch College’s and Columbia University’s respective master’s programs, took time to talk about the incoming presidential administration and the effects that it could have on communities like Southeast Queens.

The next community council meeting is scheduled for Feb. 14 at the St. Benedict the Moor Church located on 171-17 and 110th Avenue in Jamaica.

Queens At The Top Of Foreclosed Homes In NYC

BY ARIEL HERNANDEZ
Staff Writer

In a recent study done by Property Shark, leading real estate data provider, data show that of the 2,202 first-time foreclosures scheduled in 2016, 933 were in Queens, leaving the borough accountable for 42 percent of the city’s first-time auctions.

The study was conducted by taking into account foreclosed residential properties–either single-family or two-family homes, and condo or co-op units–that were scheduled to auction for the first time in 2016. By evaluating properties that received at least one lis pendens filing in 2016–either first-time filing or a refiling–it was able to determine that as a whole, New York City first-time foreclosures increased 18 percent compared to 2015.

While first-time time foreclosures happened to increase this year, since 2013 lis pendens filings in New York City have been following a descending trend, with a recorded 7 percent year-to-year decrease. Although the 12,573 filings may appear to be good news for the city, it’s disappointing news for Queens, which had 4,903 filings, making it the highest number of filings compared to the other boroughs.

When Property Shark evaluated the borough by zip code, they found that 11434, which is accountable for much of Southeast Queens, continues to be what it calls “a foreclosure hotspot.” In Jamaica, South Jamaica, Hollis and St. Albans alone, there were a total of 84 homes scheduled to be auctioned in 2016.

Overall, the study shows that Queens still has the highest number of homes scheduled of all boroughs, and with 933 properties, it accounted for almost half of the total foreclosures and registered a 16 percent year-over-year increase.
