Month by month, week by week, day by day, the Jamaica community gets worse and worse. I thought about a year ago, it was beginning to look slightly up, but the last 6 months it has gotten way worse with robberies, rapes, shootings, killings, bombardment of homeless and drug addicts into the communities making the streets and park unsafe, BUT HEY, GJDC President Hope Knight, Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and our local elected officials all say that Jamaica “is on the upswing”. Upswing of what, bad ghetto behavior, nonsense, crap and crime.
