JAMAICA SHOOTING WHERE 21 YEAR OLD WAS SHOT DID NOT NEED TO HAPPEN IF NYPD’S HANDS WERE NOT TIED BY THIS ADMINISTRATION ON NOISE COMPLAINTS

THANKS MAYOR. THANKS CITY COUNCIL. You have said another FUCK YOU to hard working law abiding citizens in this city and as usual are standing up for the law breakers who make life miserable for the rest of us. From dangerous homeless using our subway trains/stations as homeless shelters to major noise culprits who make our quality of life miserable, especially in communities of color.

One of the umpteenth shootings in the Jamaica area since a few days before Memorial Day may have been prevented if NYPD’s hands were not tied on new noise complaints rules which now states the NYPD cannot go on private property of such complaints if the owner refuses. AND that was exactly what happened in Laurelton on June 10th when a neighbor call 311 about a loud party going on next door, which then ended up with some hood rat pulling out a gun and shooting a 21 year old in the spine, because that is how things roll in this community. Party, celebrate, pull out a gun and someone gets shoot/injured/killed.

Another victory for law breakers, criminals and those who love to disturb others with blasting music and loud parties in the community. Isn’t it great to live in such a progressive liberal city where those who obey the law get a big FUCK YOU from our leaders and say “DEAL WITH IT” just as long as it it not in these “limousine liberals” back yard.

From The Daily News:

New NYPD noise complaint rules prevented cops from stopping shooting at wild Queens house party

Cops were called to the wild 232nd St. party near Merrick Blvd. in Laurelton about 10:30 p.m. Saturday, June 10, 2017 after receiving a 311 call about excessive noise, police sources said.

A 21-year-old man paralyzed by a bullet after a shooting outside a wild Queens house party would still be walking if cops hadn’t been handcuffed by new NYPD rules on noise complaints, police sources said.

Cops visited the party on 232nd St. about 11:15 p.m. Saturday after receiving an earlier noise complaint from a neighbor — more than an hour and a half before Rohan Chambers was shot in the spine.

“Had we been allowed to go onto the property, we would have shut down the party, there would have been no shooting and he would not be paralyzed,” said an outraged cop with knowledge of the case.

When police arrived at the party, near Merrick Blvd. in Laurelton, responding officers knocked on the door and asked the homeowner to be a good neighbor and keep the noise down. Then the cops then left.

New rules limit cops’ ability to enter private property

A directive handed down by Police Commissioner James O’Neill last month prohibits cops from taking further action because they were not given permission to enter the home, the officer said.

“Last year, this party would have been broken up right then and there without a second thought,” the cop said.

About 12:50 a.m., a fight at the party spilled into the street. A man in a red do-rag pulled a gun and fired a round, hitting Chambers in the back, officials said.

 Chambers’ relatives, who fear he may be permanently paralyzed, declined to comment on the shooting or how it might have been prevented. Cops have made no arrests.

Brooklyn couple’s noise complaints tied to NYPD fed probe

When police arrived on 232nd St., after a neighbor’s earlier noise complaint, there were about 100 people inside the home. But there were no signs of drug use or illegal activity — which would have allowed cops to go into the home.

Several people identified themselves as either the homeowner or the party host. All barred cops from entering.

According to the O’Neill directive, “warrantless entry” into a home or fenced-in yard “is not authorized solely for the purpose of abating noise conditions.”

Once cops get a noise complaint, they must ask permission from the homeowner to go onto the premise to investigate. If a homeowner refuses, cops can offer a warning and return the next day with a summons, according to the new rules.

Public drinking, noise offenses now just warrant civil summonses

An NYPD spokeswoman confirmed that two calls were made to 311 about excessive noise on the block before the party, but the complaints were unfounded.

Last month’s directive isn’t new policy, she said, calling it “legal guidance that is provided to NYPD officers annually before the summer months.”

The New York Civil Liberties Union, which has hailed the directive, said the shooting hasn’t changed their opinion.

“When cops suspect violence, they can force their way in, but officers without warrants have no authority to charge into homes simply because of a noise complaint,” said Chris Dunn, NYCLU’s Associate Legal Director.

  1. The operative word is “homeowner”. When the police showed up, did the respondents produce a deed? If not, they are renters or maybe squatters. it seems to me that if a deed is not presented, the cops may have legal grounds to shut the party down. The concept of “homeowner” needs to be legally looked at.
