I was actually going to do a post on how long it would take before the Jamaica nonsense kicked in and how many people would be shot and/killed, but I thought, well, maybe not this time. WRONG.
A 28 year old was shot and died at Jamaica Hospital Saturday night, when he was shot in the head at the intersection of 140th St and 120 Ave. What the fuck is wrong with this community and the black community at large. Even though the race is not mentioned, not doubt it was a young black man. And people say the shootings are equal across the board with races. I highly doubt a White, Asian, Middle Eastern or South Asian will be shot and killed in the area this holiday weekend. With as many churches in this community as 99 cent stores and beauty supply stores, you think someone would finally stand up and say enough is enough or has this become the norm in black communities and in Jamaica. And where are folks like Public Advocate Tish James, who make sure she gets in front of the camera when there is an attack on a Muslim or what about Al Sharpton or is there just no money to be made on black on black murder.
And on Wednesday early morning another young man was shot and killed outside Club Dubai on Merrick Boulevard near 127th Avenue. Chad Baldeo, 23 of Flatbush was shot and killed and a bystander was shot as well
Obviously Black power or Black pride seems to be as dead as soul & true R&B music. AND I say this because other races are not blasting each other every other day in this country as much as those in the black community have been doing for decades.
A very sad commentary. Yet, some are upset about a Chipotle coming to Jamaica Avenue. Another shooting and killing, just the norm in Jamaica and especially South Jamaica.
Well, we still have Memorial Day for some fool or fools to pull out a gun at a BBQ or party.
BUT keep getting all upset about a fucking Chipotle.
GET YOUR fucking priorities together.
And just like the Radical Islamic terror attack in Manchester, you will hear prayers, “our hearts go out to the victims families” tweets from folks and then repeat again when shit happens again and it will happen again. BUT not a damn thing will be done to change conditions and behavior with the nonsense, especially in South Jamaica. So where are all the progressive liberals on this.

2 Men Shot, One Fatally, Outside South Jamaica Club, Police Say
The victims were taken to Jamaica Hospital where one died.
QUEENS — A 23-year-old man was fatally shot and an innocent bystander wounded when a gunman opened fire outside a South Jamaica club early Wednesday, police said.
Chad Baldeo, of East Flatbush, had just left Club Dubai on Merrick Boulevard near 127th Avenue when a gunman hopped out of a car and fired about a dozen rounds, striking him as well as another 23-year-old man who was putting fliers on cars around 3:50 a.m., police sources said.
Baldeo was wounded in the back and chest. He was taken to Jamaica Hospital where he died, police said.
The bystander was also taken to Jamaica Hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.
Police said they were alerted to the gunfire by ShotSpotter, the recently installed technology that automatically notifies police of the sound of possible gunshots.
No arrests have been made.
