And it is ironic over at Times Ledger two articles I made comments about (http://www.timesledger.com/stories/2017/19/web-113robbery_2017_05_12_q01.html?comm=1#feedback) & http://www.timesledger.com/stories/2017/19/cuffings_2017_05_12_q.html?comm=1#feedback), someone made a comment about one of my comments about the high crime involving Blacks and Hispanics and the response was:

Wow….. Talk about ignorant racists….I expectED more from you. This engagement in idiotic racial profiling that you’ve displayed just lost you a lot of my respect. Yes, they’re criminals. No one denies that. But whites, asians, latinos also commit crimes. Not only “ghetto thugs.” I respect your fight for civic improvement but you’ve gotta work on your tactics.And actually, crime is spread pretty evenly across races. It’s public perception that distorts things.

But see I never claim that ghetto thugs are of one race, ghetto thugs are just that, ghetto thugs who terrorize communities and the reason why so many communities (especially of color) are not safe and so much nonsense exists in said communities.  And NO, crime is not committed equally among races. I suggest anyone read the NYPD report: http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/downloads/pdf/analysis_and_planning/year-end-2016-enforcement-report.pdf

But then I don’t need to read the report, just look at the areas with high rates of crime in the city, SE Queesn (South Jamaica, Jamaica, Ozone Park), Brooklyn (Brownsville, East New York, Rockaway Beach) and many parts of the Bronx.

I am not being “racist” nor am I generalizing, I am dealing in statistics and facts. And since i have been all over NYC and the different boroughs, it is not like I have my head in the clouds. Reality is just that reality and statistics are just that statistics. But for those who chose not to indulge in reality and facts, I guess Trump is the best president we ever had.

Just own your shit folks. Kind of hard to solve a problem, when you don’t admit there is a problem to begin with.

Police are looking for two unknown men who assaulted two employees while being thrown out of an Ozone Park bowling alley.

At approximately 1:39 a.m. on Sunday, April 9, two unknown individuals were being escorted out of Bowl 360, located at 98-18 Rockaway Blvd., by two male employees (ages 30 and 44) when the individuals started an altercation with the employees.

 During the altercation, one individual hit the 44-year-old employee in the head with a bottle and the other individual hit the 30-year-old employee in the head with an ice scraper. Following the incident, the suspects fled westbound on Rockaway Avenue.

The victims suffered lacerations to their heads and were transported to Jamaica Hospital in fair condition.

The suspects are described as black males. One was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a black and gray sweater, a black shirt and dark colored pants while the second was last seen wearing a blue bandanna, a black hooded sweater with the words “New York” across its chest and blue jeans.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

The two suspects behind the May 13 robbery of an auto body shop in South Ozone Park.

Cops are looking for two gunmen in sunglasses who held up an auto body shop in South Ozone Park on Saturday afternoon.

Law enforcement sources said the stickup took place at 1:15 p.m. on May 13 at the Ozone Auto Body garage located at 125-07 Rockaway Blvd., off 125th Street.

 According to police, the two suspects walked into the garage and displayed silver firearms as they confronted the shop’s owner and four employees. The crooks demanded the payroll money, then forced the five victims to the ground.

Seconds later, authorities said, the perpetrators removed money and other personal property from the victims, then fled the location foot eastbound on Rockaway Boulevard and then southbound on 126th Street. There, police noted, the suspects were observed entering a white SUV — believed to be a Dodge Nitro — that sped away.

Officers from the 106th Precinct responded to the robbery; none of the victims were injured.

Police described the suspects as black males in their 30s standing 5 foot 10 inches tall and wearing sunglasses. One of the bandits wore a black hooded sweatshirt, a black jacket, blue jeans and black sneakers, while his cohort wore a red hooded sweatshirt, a black jacket, black pants and black-and-white sneakers.

Anyone with information regarding the suspects’ whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.




  1. Definitely Joe. You’re not engaging in racism but rather the highly-respected academic field of sociology. Your sociological studies are considered “in the field”. A university would give you academic credit for the hands-on sociological study and investigation you have so adroitly engaged in.


  2. I used to roll there when it was called Cozy Bowl (way before it was Americana lanes). When the hell did it turn to Bowl 360? Which I think is some lame ass price gouging chain. Despite this overlooked assault, which itself is fucked up that it happened and the corporate local news ignored it, the fact that this local alley, one of the last surviving ones in all of Queens, is run by a chain is the biggest disappointment of all and a true indication of the deterioration of a neighborhood.

    I guess these lowlifes used the “South Queens style” to win a dispute with the workers there. Ozone Park is getting redlined.

    When I write the new bad days, I leave race out of it so readers can focus on the offenses.


    • I was surprised, I did not know there still were any bowling alleys in Queens.

      I notice on your blog, you don’t use race with your “Bad Days” segment, but I just feel in the PC city, that it needs to be said, since so many want to always same that crime is spread evenly among races, which it is not.


  3. There is absolutely nothing wrong with describing the races of the perpetrators. It’s always relevant. As George said, it’s sociology 101. Frankly, I expect to get backlash soon for just listing the crimes.

    People who play the race card usually have a loaded deck.


  4. You committed the unspeakable crime of ‘noticing things’, and repeating previously reported reality: this is forbidden, and you are obviously a ‘racist’ for doing so.
    The charge of ‘racist’ is used so ubiquitously as to have become meaningless: it’s what’s flung against the wall in the hope that something, anything, will stick ‘appropriately’. People using it are laughable.
    If it walks like a ‘duck’, and quacks like ‘duck’, and shits all over the place like a ‘duck’, it’s a fck’g duck, not a Buddhist Monk.
    There’s only one rule that these P’sOS respect, as elucidated some time back by Malcolm X: ‘be nonviolent with those that are nonviolent with you, but if someone lays his hands on you, send him to the cemetery’.
