HEY MARCIA, NEXT TIME YOU ROLL OVER IN BED, ASK YOUR HUBBY LEROY COMRIE WHY DOWNTOWN JAMAICA IS A MESS

Marcia Moxam Comrie (Leroy’s wife) states:

“The turn of this new millennium has been good for Jamaica and we need enhanced street infrastructure to prove it. Jamaica is no one’s stepchild and should be treated as the vibrant, first class place it deserves to be.”

Marica, you need to ask hubby Leroy and all his cronie buddies (Floyd Flake, Archie Spigner, William Scarborough, Malcolm Smith, Gregory Meeks, Manny Caughman, Vivian Cook) who have been running Jamaica for decades (well running into the ghetto ground), why is it so fucking crappy. I mean Leroy, now Senator, was councilmember for 12 years and before that, worked for that hack, former councilmember Archie Spigner. I mean he has been around long enough, ask him when you roll over in bed. If a company is fucked up, the problem is with the President/CEO and people at the top. Same goes with communities. Ghetto Shit rolls down from the top.

And can you try reaching a little better for Jamaica, because you stated below:

“We should look no less appealing than Fulton and Fordham. You go, Jamaica!”

I know it  has been several years since I have been to Fulton and Fordham, but both are pretty damn ghetto and Fordham was fucking filthy and garbage strewn last time I was there with much crap retail and stores.

Face it, your husband and his cronies have done SHIT for years, well more like decades.

Leroy Comrie stated “We are aware of this and we will clean this up after I order 3 quarter pounders with cheese, 2 large fries and a shake. Oh, throw in a dozen White Castle sliders.”

Jamaica in the box retail

Jamaica Ave, although this looks even worse when I saw it the other day.

She certainly does not look like some starving young girl in Africa.

A few years back Jamaica BID made a big deal about this store, Cool Cats (cheap jewelry) you see in various neighborhoods, one was in the Village. Here in Jamaica it barely lasted a year and a half, now just a shit store of assorted crap inside with the loud microphone asshole in front (see this shit all on the Ave). Of course owners of this third world flea market leaves the old sign up. SO GHETTO.

165th St Shopping Area. One hell of a big mess.

DOT Looking To Enhance Jamaica Aesthetics

A Personal Perspective
BY MARCIA MOXAM COMRIE

Armed with examples from other booming areas, representatives from the city’s Department of Transportation were in Jamaica earlier this week quizzing residents and workers on how they would like to see downtown Jamaica’s streets improved.

They got an earful.

While standing with one interviewer, I could hear the discussions between another and his interviewees. Some were complaining about vans speeding through red lights and some about potholes following recent snow storms, while others fussed about traffic congestion “on the ave.”

But the choices being presented were enhanced streetscapes with more shrubs and trees, curved corner medians as exemplified at Parsons and Jamaica Avenues, tables and chairs as seen at 42nd Street, bus-only streets as an option to minimize congestion, potted plant barriers— such as those along the curb of Parsons Boulevard between Archer and Jamaica Avenues— and more street lights.

The posters on display depict areas of Jamaica already improved, but the DOT is still giving residents and those who work in the area the opportunity to weigh in on further enhancements. The posters also included pictures of the commercial areas of Fulton Street in Brooklyn and the Fordham Road area of the Bronx as examples of what could be possible in Jamaica.

These are exciting times for Jamaica and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving place. For decades, we have struggled to get “our groove back” following the flight of businesses in the 1970s and 1980s and crime during the crack epidemic of the 1980s and early 1990s.

But we have been making steady strides toward revitalization and the reduction in petty crimes since the mid-1990s.

The turn of this new millennium has been good for Jamaica and we need enhanced street infrastructure to prove it. Jamaica is no one’s stepchild and should be treated as the vibrant, first class place it deserves to be.

We are building new hotels, apartment buildings, celebrating a college’s golden anniversary, providing art exhibits and performance space and so much more. It makes perfect sense that our roads and sidewalks reflect that we are indeed living in the 21st century.

There was never a better time to live, work, do business and get a college education in Jamaica than right now. We are on a roll and our improved traffic flow and street aesthetics will only add to the feeling that we are in the throes of a renaissance. We should look no less appealing than Fulton and Fordham. You go, Jamaica!

 

JAMAICA MAN AMONG SEVERAL BUSTED IN BROOKLYN FOR ROLES IN MAJOR DRUG SMUGGLING – JAMAICA HOUSE USED FOR RECIEVING SHIPMENTS OF HEROIN AND COCAINE

From Phoenix AZ to the Jamaica house of Warren Appolon. That was where major amounts of drugs (cocaine and heroin) were shipped and received. NOW, why am I not surprised that the receiving station was in Jamaica, the lawless ghetto land of Queens. Of the 34 busted, besides Appolon, two other Queens men were arrested from Queens Village and Ridgewood.

Damn, look at that chart, what a collection of diverse low-life ghetto hood rats, BUT wait, they are all misunderstood.

One of Jamaica’s finest

MUGSHOTS: NYPD busts massive NYC drug ring involving heroin, furanyl fentanyl, cocaine

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 05:37PM

Police arrested nearly three dozen people for allegedly dealing heroin, cocaine and a deadly designer drug named furanyl fentanyl as part of a New York City-based drug ring.

The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office announced the 357-count indictment against 34 people Wednesday.

Prosecutors said the suspects were involved in a ring that sold drugs in New York City, some upstate New York counties and in Phoenix, Arizona. The alleged activity happened between June 2016 and March 2017.

NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said this case was the first time he had seen this new form of fentanyl in NYC. Furanyl fentanyl is almost 50-percent more potent than heroin. It is a controlled substance under federal law, but is currently is not covered by New York State law because of its slightly different chemical composition.

According to prosecutors, the ring had a hierarchy set up, and those participating each had different roles in the supply and distribution operations.

Here’s a flowchart showing the hierarchy of the ring, as well as most of the mugshots:

Prosecutors said Jerome Horton headed up the distribution operation in Brooklyn, with Willie Billingslea directly below him. They allegedly had multiple redistributors who purchased and resold heroin and cocaine in amounts ranging from 5 to 800 grams.

One the supplier side, prosecutors said Nigel Maloney, who was based in Phoenix, would mail heroin and cocaine to Warren Appolon, who operated out of his home in Jamaica, Queens. Appolon is accused of supplying the narcotics to Billingslea, who worked on behalf of Horton.

“When that supply chain was not enough to satisfy the high demand of the ring, the investigation revealed that the members of the ring sought additional suppliers,” the DA’s office said in a news release. “Joseph Raffone and Kristian Cruz allegedly served as secondary suppliers of heroin and furanyl fentanyl, apparently referred to as “White China” and received in bulk through the mail.”

Here’s a list of all suspects charged in the case:

1. Nigel Maloney, 49, of Phoenix, Arizona
2. Warren Appolon, 46, of Jamaica, Queens
3. Jerome Horton, 47, of East New York, Brooklyn
4. Willie Billingslea, 43, of East New York, Brooklyn
5. Brian Davis, 29, of Brownsville, Brooklyn
6. Stephon Nottingham, 30, of Canarsie, Brooklyn
7. Gary Felton, 30, of Crown Heights, Brooklyn
8. Kristian Cruz, 21, of the East Village, Manhattan
9. Joseph Raffone, 38, of Ridgewood, Queens
10. Chareefe Watkins, 30, of Brownsville, Brooklyn
11. Marion Trombley, 28, of Cobleskill, NY
12. Basilio Hidalgo, 32, of East Williamsburg, Brooklyn
13. Christopher Corley, 40, of Freeport, NY
14. Jerome Eddie, 41, of Crown Heights, Brooklyn
15. ackie Hillard, 43, of Ronkonkoma, NY
16. Taivon Wise, 35, of Crown Heights, Brooklyn
17. Ksun Hodgson, 34, of East New York, Brooklyn
18. Theo Jones, 33, of Prospect Heights, Brooklyn
19. Anthony Edwards, 32, of Brownsville, Brooklyn
20. Micky Hilton, 36, of Rockville Center, NY
21. Kye Robbins, 30, of Brownsville, Brooklyn
22. Alonzo Cunigan, 35, of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn
23. Henry Bannister, 50, of Harrisburg, SC
24. Zakierfrare Scott, 39, of Harrisburg, SC
25. Oscar Murphy, 29, of Harrisburg, SC
26. Donnell Scott, 47, of Peeskill, NY
27. Dorian Brooks, 47, of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn
28. Gregory Campbell, 45, of Brownsville, Brooklyn
29. Miles Knight, 30, of Greensboro, NC
30. Jerome Harris, 30, of Canarsie, Brooklyn
31. Kenneth Christian, 44, of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn
32. Antoine Leveque, 36, of Clifton, Staten Island
33. Gregory Boyd-Davis, 33, of Queens Village, Queens
34. Robert Meredith, 32, of Ditmars, Queens

Court records allege the ring stored drugs and cash under floor boards, in storage rooms and other locations. The members also apparently used vehicles with “elaborate hiding spaces” (also called traps) to store and transport the drugs.

Prosecutors said most of the sales occurred in hand-to-hand transactions in vehicles, buildings or on the street.

Investigators recovered a total of 2.455 kilograms of cocaine, 1.704 kilograms of heroin, 4.581 kilograms of furanyl fentanyl and 17 firearms during the investigation.

Most of the suspects in the case were arrested and arraigned on the charges last week and this week.

Fentanyl has contributed to a record number of 1,350 drug overdoses in NYC in 2016, the highest total on record. About 1,075 of those overdoses involved an opioid and 90 percent of fatal opioid overdoses involved heroin or fentanyl.

“This may be the biggest public health crisis of our time. These defendants don’t care about the death and despair they’re causing – just making money,” Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said.

 

 

MTA FINALLY ENDS STUPID FUCKING PROGRAM WHICH REMOVED GARBAGE CANS FROM SUBWAY STATIONS

Totally asshole MTA after five fucking years has ended one of the most idiotic pilot programs, one that removed trash receptacles from subway stations as a way to reduce station littering.  AND GOD FUCKING LAUGHED!

WELL guess what it did not FUCKING WORK. No shit. Let’s face it, NYC has one of the biggest slob populations in the entire country, people throw litter and garbage all over the damn place and really MTA, you think that removing trash receptacles from subway stations,  people will just take the litter/garbage with them to find a can  out on the sidewalks. FUCK NO, they are going to throw it right in the subway station.

Hell, just ask any of us civilized folks that live in Jamaica. No garbage can around, no problem ghetto slobs will toss it on the sidewalk, in front of your house, on the street or in a doorway. Shit, it does not even matter to those folks if a garbage can is only five feet away. Have an empty lot, you just created a full fledged garbage dump. Have a mattress lying on the sidewalk, why yes of course garbage will be dumped on top it. Have a flower bed in front of your apartment building, HELL YES. Ghetto slobs in this community , will change their babies/kids diaper in a parking lot in downtown Jamaica (which have several garbage cans), and 7 times out of 10 that fucking shit encased diaper will go straight on the ground.

What were you thinking MTA, I mean NYC is the third world country of the USA.

And now time for JAMAICA QUEENS: THE MACULATE COLLECTION.” 

The state of Jamaica, Queens and eventually our country if we stay on this course.

LONGTIME JAMAICA QUEENS ACTIVIST, ASIM DEEN, WILL ENTER THE MAYORAL RACE

Hey, Asim, we certainly could use some new blood that cares about the community in the local scene of politics, I mean look at some of the crap that is here in Jamaica now: Comrie, Cooks, Wills.

NYCC Protests Condition Of Jamaica Avenue

BY TRONE DOWD

Editor

Members of New York Communities for Change stood out at the corner of Francis Lewis Boulevard and Jamaica Avenue Saturday morning to protest the city’s repeated broken promises pertaining to torn-up roadways in the neighborhood.

Members of NYCC protest Saturday about the condition of area roads.

The Southeast Queens Chapter of NYCC announced last week that it collected over 400 signatures from the community, calling for action to fix the bumpy and destructive intersection of Jamaica Avenue and Francis Lewis. The chapter has been particularly active as of late. Back in August, the civic group protested a proposed 14-story building in downtown Jamaica.

Among those who attended were Republican candidate for the 24th Assembly District Ira Harris and Republican candidate for the 5th Congressional District Michael O’Reilly. Both of them are residents as well as supporters of the NYCC.

“This is not my assembly district,” Harris told the Queens Tribune. “But I’ve traveled this road frequently.”

Harris said that in his experience, he has seen the damage that the torn-up street has caused to the cars of constituents.

“This road has never gotten paved,” Harris said. “I always wondered why other roads get paved twice in two years while this road did not. As Mike O’Reilly said, these votes are usually guaranteed. I couldn’t understand why the people of this community would vote time and time again to re-elect officials that wouldn’t address their issues.”

The condition of northern Jamaica Avenue has been a long-time concern of residents and commuters alike for decades. Last year, during the race for the District 27 City Council, fixing Jamaica Avenue was one of the chief concerns of the candidates. In fact, the Queens Tribune took a tour of the streets with then city council candidate Ali Najmi last August. Many local businesses talked about how the torn-up streets have affected commerce in the area. They complained that their shops are often ignored since they are located in a spot drivers avoid at all costs.

Countless accidents have occurred along this roadway. In September alone, 10 accidents occurred at the corner of Francis Lewis Boulevard and Jamaica Avenue, according to Motor Vehicle collision data reports.

“We need to listen to the people, because they usually know what the solutions are to the problem better than Albany does and better than the city council,” Harris said.

The Department of Transportation has taken note of the issue in recent months. During a town hall last month when the issue was raised with Mayor Bill de Blasio, he brought up Borough Commissioner Nicole Garcia, who personally said that she had been working with Councilman I. Daneek Miller (D-St. Albans) and that the issue was being addressed.

As of last month, it was reported that the DOT would be repaving seven miles of road from Francis Lewis Boulevard to 225th Street as early as December. In the months to follow, the DOT will then repave 168th Street to Francis Lewis Boulevard.

NYCC, however, was not convinced they’d actually see the changes announced last month.

“I’ve been living here for the last 26 years,” Asim Deem, a member of NYCC, told the Queens Tribune. “This roadway has never been done. What they keep doing was just dumping some asphalt in certain parts of the roadway. That’s been going on for decades. There comes a time when you tell yourself enough is enough. Drivers have been paying hundreds of dollars for repairs of their vehicle because of this.”

He wondered when residents would see the completion of fixes that have been promised over the years.

DOUBLE SHOOTING IN ST. ALBANS LEAVES ONE DEAD, SHOOTER ON THE LOOSE – SO MUCH FOR ST. ALBANS BEING A “NICE AREA”

I have said this many times before. Just like cancer, if you don’t reign in the criminals, hood rats, quality of life issues, the then ghetto cancer spreads to a nice area it spreads fast and once it got a foot hold, it is hard to control.

I have lost track of incidents like this in the supposedly “nice” St. Alban area. Looks like one of those ghetto clubs.

St. Albans, this is Leroy Comrie’s area and where the Burgermeister lives.

Senator Leroy Comrie, one of biggest do nothing elected Jamaica officials of the past couple decades.

NYPD Investigating Double Queens Shooting

By NY1 News
Updated Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 11:18 AM CDT

Police are on the hunt for the person behind a double-shooting in Queens early Wednesday morning that left a man dead.

It happened shortly before 4 a.m. on Merrick Boulevard near 127th Avenue in St. Albans.

Investigators say the shooter got out of the passenger side of a blue or black Nissan Maxima and opened fire on a 23-year-old man who had just left nearby Club Dubai.

The victim was hit in the torso and died at the hospital.

Another 23-year-old man was hit in the leg.

Police say he was a bystander who was putting flyers on cars at the time.

The shooter then got back in the car and fled the scene.

The man who was shot in the leg is expected to survive.

THE DIRTY SOUTHEAST QUEENS SCHOOLS: BAD RICHMOND HILL HIGH KNOWN AS “PS #FEAR”

“In 2016, 64% of students at Richmond Hill graduated on time, compared with the city average of 73%.”

SO, are public schools really that bad as far as education or are students just FUCKING STUPID today raised by bad parents? AND why certain areas and not all areas.

Again the people make a community and the elected officials and city agencies help to create such an environment to allow this shit to thrive by allowing quality of life issues to nose dive, lack of enforcement and the rule of “do whatever the fuck you want” bullshit allowed in such communities.

THE BROKEN WINDOW THEORY LIVES.

EXCLUSIVE: Queens’ Richmond Hill High School students fear for their lives as serious fights break out on campus

It’s becoming the school of hard knocks, and a safety agent union leader says students are scared.

Violence erupted at troubled Richmond Hill High School in Queens, as police responded to two incidents involving students — and a vicious brawl caught on tape.

School safety officials said a video recorded by students at the school on March 10 shows a gang initiation, with a crowd of students pummeling each other on campus.

Cops responded to the school after two girls struck another girl in the face, according to police records for that day.

Bronx high school brawl raises criticism of de Blasio’s policy

The victim didn’t report any injuries, but a shaky cell phone video that safety agents provided to the Daily News shows a melee with a mob of students punching each other.

The safety agents union president, Greg Floyd, said scared students gave the video to agents at the school in a cry for help.

“The de Blasio school violence coverup isn’t working,” Floyd said. “Students are afraid of the gangs, guns, knives. They came to us because no one at City Hall is listening.”

Eric Phillips, a spokesman for Mayor de Blasio, said “No truth to it. No evidence behind it. No idea where the suggestion comes from.”

School officials wouldn’t say whether the video and the police incidents were connected.

But nearly two weeks later, an 18-year-old student was removed from the school and taken to a hospital after screaming threats at staffers.

“I’m gonna get you all after school. I’m gonna f— you all up,” he yelled in the March 23 incident, police said.

That student, who is white, also hurled racist taunts at a black school administrator, cops said.

Violent brawl breaks out in lunch room of Maryland high school

The three students involved in the two incidents were charged with harassment, police said.

Education Department spokeswoman Toya Holness said only one of the incidents occurred on school grounds.

“We are providing the school with ongoing resources, trainings and support to address challenges that are taking place outside of school,” Holness said.

Richmond Hill High School has struggled for years with academic and safety issues, earning a place in Mayor de Blasio’s controversial Renewal Schools program for troubled classrooms.

Just four out of five students said they felt safe in the school hallways in a 2015 city survey. In 2016, 64% of students at Richmond Hill graduated on time, compared with the city average of 73%.

JUST HOW MANY FUCKING CHURCHES DOES GREATER JAMAICA REALLY NEED – LAURELTON WOMAN OPENS CHURCH IN HER GARAGE

AND is this REALLY LEGAL.  I mean is there a zoning ordinance (law) in effect for that neighborhood? I see nowhere in this article where the so-called journalist asked this question.

It also  figures this would be in Greater Jamaica. Like there are not enough BULLSHIT churches in the area, like every other block. Can you say AVOIDING PAYING TAXES. What a SCAM, this whole fucking church crap in Queens. Think about the number of churches from big money makers like Floyd Flake’s Church of the Almighty Dollar to shit store front churches to bullshit like this garbage church AND think about all the lost revenue since churche & religious institutions are not taxed. AND what do these churches and there “leaders” really do for the community, how do they help improve it, because from where I am standing, Jamaica is a FUCKING MESS of Biblical proportions.

What a FUCKING SCAM. Probably in a few years you will hear some shady thing with this and her non-profit Radikal 4 Kidz, which was started last March. Considering all the scam non-profits in this area and all the bullshit and nonsense, I would not be surprised.

From Queens Times Ledger:

Correction officer opens church in her Laurelton home

Tina Booker holds services in the garage of her home in Laurelton.

In the spacious garage of her Laurelton home, Department of Correction Officer Tina Booker has established a new calling in addition to her work with inmates and fellow corrections staff and her role as the head of Radikal 4 Kidz, a non-profit organization.

Since October 2016, Booker’s garage has been home to the “Full of Faith Christian Center,” where she ministers each Sunday to a small but growing congregation. The opening of the church marked a new chapter in Booker’s spiritual life. She was called to the ministry in 2009 and was ordained as a reverend in 2012.

“I just started seeking a closer relationship with God and knew I was called to something greater because I love people,” she said. “The Bible helped me. Everybody has their different religious beliefs, but it helped me grow, and even encouraged me when coming to work.”

Booker has been with the Correction Department for 18 years, working in security and administrative positions with a wide variety of inmates and staff. In January, the DOC opened a Chaplain’s Office for DOC staff, and Booker is the first officer established as a Correction Department chaplain. In her role, she offers guidance and counsel, comforts ill officers and grieves with those who have experienced loss on the staff.

In addition to her Correction work and her ministry, Booker runs Radikal 4 Kidz, which hosts town hall meetings to bridge the gap between law enforcement and communities, and also organizes family-friendly activities for youth and parents. The organization received its 501(c)(3) status last March.

“These young guys are so creative, these young women are so creative in the things they can do — drawing, writing, it’s phenomenal. And I ask, ‘Where did we drop the ball?’” she said when speaking about the inmates. She hopes her work can help reach younger individuals in the community to keep them out of the criminal justice system. “That could be one less young person that I see behind the gate,”she said.

Booker’s church services typically begin with about 15 minutes of peaceful music and meditation and she said sometimes tears of joy flow from the faces of parishioners. There are scripture reading, a sermon and songs in a relaxed environment Booker said is always buoyed by humor.

 “I always say God has a sense of humor. How could there be comedians if we didn’t?” she said. “So many people are scared of church and spirituality. But you have to be you and strive to be the best you.”

Booker is looking for a donated space in Brooklyn or Queens that she can use as a safe haven for neighborhood adolescents to peacefully gather. She continues to work as a correction officer and chaplain, counseling inmates, staff, her parishioners and her community. She said the many hats she wears have made her life very busy, but she was nevertheless joyful about her own call to service.

“I just think people should know when it comes to ministry, there’s an open door of love to receive anyone that walks in through the door,” she said. “Love, care and concern.”
