QUEENS CHRONICLE STORY TITLE ON ADRIENNE ADAMS SEEKING COUNCIL SEAT SHOULD REALLY BE “ADRIENNE ADAMS PUSHED INTO SEEKING 28TH COUNCIL DISTRICT SEAT BY QUEENS ANTI-DEMOCRATIC MACHINE”

Really, the title, if it wanted to be TRUTHFUL,  should be:

ADRIENNE ADAMS PUSHED INTO SEEKING 28TH COUNCIL DISTRICT SEAT BY QUEENS ANTI-DEMOCRATIC MACHINE

That would be a more truthful title since Adams did not seek that seat when the MACHINE was backing crooked Wills. I mean why didn’t she put her name on the ballot back then, especially knowing what a do nothing and crook Wills was. I mean if she cared so much about the community (which I do believe she does), why not put your name on the ballot months ago instead of the last minute after Wills was found guilty and the crooked machine was backing him even when he was on trial.

Again, they just want another puppet in office they can control. Should be called the QUEENS ANTI-DEMOCRATIC MACHINE, because that really is what it is, ANTI-DEMOCRATIC. Look for the MACHINE to start tossing the other candidates off the ballot with their form of voter suppression, called petitioning signatures. JUST WATCH. Hope the candidates had three times as many signatures as needed, because this is how the CROOKED JOE CROWLEY QUEENS DEM MACHINE WORKS AND STAYS IN POWER or as it is known to us as FUCK THE CONSTITUENTS AND VOTERS.

You heard it hear first.

Adrienne Adams seeks 28th Council District seat

Posted: Thursday, July 27, 2017 5:06 pm | Updated: 5:10 pm, Thu Jul 27, 2017.

Adrienne Adams, chairwoman of Community Board 12, on Thursday announced her candidacy for the Democratic nomination in the 28th City Council District, the seat vacated last week when Ruben Wills was convicted on corruption charges.

Adams’ announcement came with the endorsement of U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens, Bronx), who also serves as the Queens County Democratic Party chairman.

 Crowley and the party previously had endorsed Wills for re-election.

U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Queens, Nassau) also has endorsed Adams.

She joins a Democratic field that already includes Hettie Powell, Richard David and former Councilman Allan Jennings.

“Community and service are not empty words, but are the principles that have guided my life,” Adams said in a statement issued by her campaign. “As I campaign to represent the people of the 28th Council District, I am proud to have the support of Congress Members Crowley and Meeks, and look forward to partnering with them and my many friends in the City Council to improve the economic opportunity, transportation options, and overall quality of life in Rochdale, Jamaica, Richmond Hill and South Ozone Park.”

“The people of Queens deserve honest representation and a City Council member who will fight tirelessly for the best interests of the community,” Crowley said. “Adrienne Adams has proven time and again that she knows what this community needs and how to build the coalitions necessary to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. I’m proud to support her campaign for City Council.”

“As we work to stem the extremism of Donald Trump’s presidency, having City Council Members who are committed to working together to deliver for our communities is critical,” Meeks said. “Adrienne Adams has a record of delivering for the people of Queens as Chairwoman of Community Board 12, and I know she’ll continue to do so as our new City Councilwoman.”

Adams has been chairwoman of Community Board 12 since 2012, taking over when the panel was in a state of turmoil.

She is also a member of the Jamaica Now Leadership Council, which promotes economic development in the neighborhood, as well as serving on the Governor’s Local Planning Committee for the Jamaica Downtown Revitalization Initiative in support of funding specific revitalization project,s and is a past member of the Queens Borough Public Library Board of Trustees.

Adams last year ran against state Sen. James Sanders Jr. (D-South Ozone Park) in the 10th Senate Democratic primary.

She jumped into the race when Sanders announced his intention to primary Meeks in the 5th Congressional District. Sanders eventually dropped the bid, but Adams won the party’s endorsement. In the September primary, however, Sanders defeated Adams by 15 points and coasted to re-election in November.

Sanders is believed to be backing Powell for the nomination.

The Democratic Primary will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 12th.

WHY MUST OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS ALWAYS SINK TO THE CRIMINAL ELEMENT AS OPPOSED TO CHANGING THE BEHAVIOR / ACTIONS OF THE CRIMINAL

While I don’t think it is such a big deal to make turnstile jumping a criminal offense to a civil offense (I mean the culprits are still not getting off, it will still be an offense), I am noticing in this day and age that when a higher number of Black & Hispanic or others people are involved in illegal action or behavior that they should not be doing in the first place, instead of changing the behavior or actions of the culprits, we must change the system to make people less and less accountable. Well, we do it for elected officials, might as well do if for the street criminals too. Right. WRONG ON BOTH ACCOUNTS. Grown ass adults need to be held accountable for their actions and behaviors, plain and simple instead of making a million excuses why some grown ass adult did the stupid ass thing in the first place.

Amazing how our country continues to lower the bar more and more when it comes to people’s behavior, just like music and movies have lowered the bar so much that the majority of it anymore is shit.

I love this line:

State Sen. Jesse Hamilton (D-Crown Heights) and Assemblywoman Tremaine Wright (D-Bedford-Stuyvesant) last week said turnstile-jumping cases, which predominately affect people of color with low incomes, would become noncriminal offenses under legislation they plan to introduce.

I mean look how this crime goes immediately into the spin zone. “Turnstile-jumping predominately affects people of color with low incomes” as if  turnstile-jumping was a disease like diabetes and the person had no control of it as opposed to it being a choice by an individual. The line really should be “People of color with low incomes tend to be turnstile-jumpers”.

Again, making turnstile-jumping a civil offense does not mean the person just gets off and promises not to do it again.  With a civil offense, you get a ticket and sign for it and you also made a promise to appear before a local court and take care of your fine. If you fail to take care of the ticket, the local judge can issue a warrant for your arrest, and you can be charged with an additional crime of “failure to appear.” Now if you have an outstanding warrants, that is a different matter and things change. SO again you are not getting off free, but at least the courts are not getting clogged for smaller matters like this, which then hold up the  entire system.

My issue is how we are constantly making bad behavior as okay because some people in our society continually get worse and cause issues and so then WE need to adapt to that as opposed to the opposite.

CARIBBEAT: Make fare-beating ‘civil,’ not ‘criminal’ – and a trigger for deportation, say pols

 

State Sen. Jesse Hamilton (c.) and state Assembly member Tremaine Wright (r.) talk about decriminalizing fare-beating in Brooklyn on Tuesday.

(David Wexler/For New York Daily News)

Deportation over a $2.75 subway fare is unfortunately a frightening reality that two Brooklyn politicians want to eliminate by decriminalizing subway fare-beating and making it a civil offense.

State Sen. Jesse Hamilton (D-Crown Heights) and Assemblywoman Tremaine Wright (D-Bedford-Stuyvesant) last week said turnstile-jumping cases, which predominately affect people of color with low incomes, would become noncriminal offenses under legislation they plan to introduce.

“Look at the numbers, 20,000 kids, 16 and 17, arrested every year; some of them have been incarcerated, getting criminal records for just $2.75! It makes no sense,” Hamilton said, noting the consequences for some immigrants can be dire.

“Also if you’re undocumented, now they (the federal government) can use that against you for deportation,” said Hamilton, who announced the decriminalization bill with Wright at a press conference last Tuesday attended by community activists and representatives of legal groups supporting the proposed measure.

 

DELUSIONAL COUNCILMAN RORY LANCMAN SAY THE FUTURE IS BRIGHT FOR DOWNTOWN JAMAICA, BUT MY PHOTOS SHOW THE REAL PRESENT AND FUTURE, BUT WHY BOTHER WITH A LITTLE ANNOYING SOMETHING CALLED TRUTH

Christ my BULLSHIT Level is shooting through the charts and is in nuclear meltdown. I mean what bright future is Lancman talking about. I notice he did not mention how the community has 26 homeless shelters not counting all the group homes and hybrid hotes/homeless shelter like the Comfort Inn on 162 st in downtown Jamaica which has three floors for hotel guests and three floors for the homeless. Guess he overlooked THAT BRIGHT FUTURE.

The Future Is Bright For Downtown Jamaica

BY COUNCILMAN RORY I. LANCMAN

It is an exciting time for downtown Jamaica.

Thanks to the work of the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz’s Jamaica Now Action Plan, downtown Jamaica has developed into a growing and thriving community. More families are choosing to live and work here. New businesses are setting up shop, creating jobs and opportunities. Public investment has connected Jamaica to John F. Kennedy Airport through AirTrain and private investment has spearheaded the creation of apartments, hotels and retail shops.

Downtown Jamaica—part of which I represent—is transforming right before our eyes. With Gov.Andrew  Cuomo’s new $10 million Downtown Revitalization commitment, the neighborhood is about to take another huge step forward.

When Gov. Cuomo announced last year that downtown Jamaica was selected for this incredible new investment by New York State, it was huge news. In the months that followed the announcement, a local planning committee composed of community leaders and civic organizations worked with state agencies to identify specific projects to further development and build on the area’s existing assets.

Earlier this month, I joined Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul and Queens leaders as the governor’s office announced the seven winning projects that would be financed by the $10 million initiative.

I am pleased to report that two of the projects are based in the 24th Council District, which I represent in the New York City Council. The first is the creation of a co-working space in the Moda building that will provide affordable and flexible workspace to entrepreneurs and startups. Not only will the workspace help create jobs, but it will help attract new industries to downtown Jamaica.

The other is the expansion of career and technical education (CTE) at Thomas Edison High School. The CTE programs provided at Edison are critical to ensuring our children are taught the skills needed for the jobs of tomorrow.

In order to attract new businesses, along with new residents, downtown Jamaica must have broadband service that is top notch. The committee wisely made bringing high-speed internet and improving broadband infrastructure a priority project. Doing so will make it easier for people to stay connected and help local businesses operate effectively.

As we bring in new services and technology into downtown Jamaica, it is vital that we enhance the physical space that we already have. That is why the transformation of Jamaica Center is such an important project. By expanding the surrounding public space and improving streetscape, we can improve residents’ quality-of-life and make this area welcoming for all.

I look forward to seeing how these projects revitalize this important neighborhood and the local economy. The future is bright for downtown Jamaica.

Rory Lancman represents the 24th City Council district, which covers Jamaica, Jamaica Estates, Hollis, Flushing, Kew Gardens and Richmond Hill.

EVEN WHEN A GHETTO THUG POLITICIAN LIKE RUBEN WILLS IS FOUND GUILTY, THERE ARE THOSE IN THE COMMUNITY WHO STICK UP FOR HIM AND OFFER TYPICAL FOR THIS COMMUNITY, BULLSHIT PRAYERS.

Even when a political ghetto thug like former disgraced Councilman Ruben Wills is found guilty on 5 counts of corruption there are still people in this majorly fucked up community who side with him and others who offer bullshit “prayers”. WHAT THE FUCK, the man, who was a complete do nothing local elected official and wasted our tax dollars for a term and a half and then was found guilty on five corruption charges still has residents like Erica Ford of LifeCamp siding with him and then going off on some bullshit tangent:

“As a constituent and as someone who goes through this process, the process is barbaric. When we look at the criminal justice system, there are hundreds of thousands of black men and women inside of these prisons not for the crimes they’ve committed, but because they are black men and women.”

I mean WHAT THE FUCK does that have to do with this disgraceful local elected politician. I mean Ford, what the fuck are you yammering about.

Then we have life time political hacks like Senator Leroy Comrie (another fucking do nothing) who said:

I am disappointed and saddened by the outcome of the trial. Ruben has massive potential and has served effectively as a member of the New York City Council. My prayers are with him and his family during this difficult time.”

Disappointed by the outcome, why the fuck aren’t you disappointed in your asshole colleague, who fucked over his constituents.  AND why are you disappointed, he is a fucking CROOK and a do-nothing councilman who only made 50% of council meetings, so how the fuck did he serve “effectively” and how the fuck did this dead beat dad behind on child support, who had an unlicensed home improvement business and assaulted another politician  have “massive potential”.  What a complete and utter asshole Comrie is.

Christ even when someone is found guilty, betrayed  his trust, and fucked over the constituents who he was to serve, folks in this ghetto community still stick up for him and make excuses and this is why Jamaica continues to be a fucked ghetto with a poor quality of life and why communities of color, especially African-American communities are fucked up.

At least Senator James Sanders Jr, did not fall into this fucking bullshit stating “People’s faith in their elected officials has been shaken again”. He did not make excuses for this clown, he did not play the race card, which is what Erica Ford was attempting to do.

AND shove all this bullshit prayers that  black communities love to do and solves absolutely nothing

My prayers are with him and his family during this difficult time”, said Senator Leroy Comrie.

Like this fuck had 4th stage lung cancer.

HE IS A FUCKING CROOK, who wasted tax payers money and betrayed their trust and did absolutely NOTHING his whole time in office.

I am afraid there is no hope for Jamaica, not as long as this bullshit ghetto mentality thrives and does not hold people accountable for their actions and behavior.

And by the way Erica, how is your working to stop gun and gang violence on city streets working out, because since there have been over 10 killings this year alone and countless shootings, I would say not too fucking well. Maybe you need to focus on THAT as opposed to sticking up for corrupt elected officials.

At least there are still some people in the community with common sense and tired of all the bullshit.

SAD, SAD, SAD

Following three years of delays, a two-week trial and two days of deliberation last week, a jury found Councilman Ruben Wills guilty of a total of five counts in his corruption trial after he used taxpayer money for personal use. According to the charges, the councilman had stolen more than $30,000 in money by funneling it through a nonprofit group he created and used it to purchase clothes, fast food and, in one case, an expensive handbag.

“Ruben Wills’ crimes were a shameful violation of the public trust,” state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said following the verdict. “New Yorkers deserved better.”

Wills’ Southeast Queens council district has been under a cloud since the councilman was first indicted. He lost authority of the distribution of funds in his district as a result of the case being built against him. What’s more important is that this has gone on for years. Wills was reelected in 2013 while a criminal investigation was hovering over him.

The Southeast Queens community has lost too many elected officials to convictions for misdeeds and misappropriation. It’s important for young people to be able to look up to elected officials and see them as examples of leadership and integrity. It’s a shame they’ve had to see so many elected officials go to jail. This year’s council race to fill his seat is one of the most important elections that Southeast Queens has faced in many years.

As voters, we should send a message to City Hall and the children of the community that we need to have someone representing us who is a stellar example and is committed to working for the people, not themselves. We should expect no less from those who represent us, from the city and state to the federal level.

Wills Found Guilty In Corruption Case

BY TRONE DOWD

Councilman Ruben Wills (D-Jamaica), the Southeast Queens representative caught up in a web of controversy due to allegations that he used $30,000 of taxpayer money for personal use, was found guilty on five criminal counts last Thursday.

The jury made its decision after two days of deliberation, concluding the three-year case that the New York State Attorney General had built against the politician.

Wills was found guilty of one count of a scheme to defraud in the first degree, two counts of grand larceny in the third degree and two counts of filing a false instrument in the first degree. He was acquitted on a single charge for filing false business records.

According to State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, state law requires that the councilman will be automatically expelled from the New York City Council. Wills faces a maximum of seven years in prison.

“Ruben Wills’ crimes were a shameful violation of the public trust. Now, after a conviction by a jury of his peers, Ruben Wills will face the consequences,” Schneiderman said. “Ruben Wills stole taxpayer dollars to buy fancy purses and clothes for himself and his friends. New Yorkers deserved better. Today’s conviction is another important step in our efforts to clean up New York politics and give voters the representation they deserve.”

In a conversation with the PRESS of Southeast Queens shortly after the jury’s decision, Wills said that he was “disappointed in the verdict.”

“I’m innocent,” he said. “We’re going to appeal on this and win. I think there are a lot of constitutional violations that happened.”

Wills pointed to that fact that many of his witnesses, including state Sen. Leroy Comrie (D-St. Albans), were dismissed by Queens County Judge Ira Margulis before they could testify before the jury.

Wills’ attorney, Kevin O’Donnell, told the PRESS of Southeast Queens that he is confident in the ability to appeal the decision.

“We’re devastated,” O’Donnell said. “Having got to know Ruben and his constituency, his character. This is a tough one to swallow. I thought with the circumstantial evidence charge that it would be clear that there was another explanation of innocence. I wish the jury had looked at the charge a little deeper.”

State Sen. James Sanders (D-South Ozone Park) said in a statement shortly after the verdict that it was a “sad day for the community.”

“People’s faith in their elected officials has been shaken again,” Sanders said. “Never has there been a greater need for good, clean leadership. The election to fill this seat has become all the more important in light of this conviction. I hope the community will be able to put their trust in someone who can lead them forward with strength and dignity.”

Wills’ colleague and, arguably, biggest critic in the city council, Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, had a more stinging response to Thursday’s decision.

“Ruben Wills betrayed the trust of all New Yorkers when he abused his position in the state senate to steal thousands of dollars from the hardworking taxpayers of New York for his own selfish gain,” Mark-Viverito said. “Serving in elected office requires honesty and integrity and today’s conviction makes clear that Ruben Wills is unfit to be a member of the city council. We thank Attorney General Schneiderman for his diligence in investigating and trying this case and the jury for their service in bringing justice to New Yorkers.”

In Southeast Queens, not everyone was pleased with the decision. Erica Ford—founder of the LifeCamp civic group in Southeast Queens, which works to stop gun and gang violence on city streets—was vocal about the decision.

“As a constituent and as someone who goes through this process, the process is barbaric,” Ford said. “When we look at the criminal justice system, there are hundreds of thousands of black men and women inside of these prisons not for the crimes they’ve committed, but because they are black men and women.”

She mentioned that she wanted to see justice in other cases unrelated to Wills, including the killings of Sean Bell and Tamir Rice. She added that the justice system has historically not been fair to black and brown people.

Comrie said that he was “disappointed and saddened by the outcome of the trial.”

“Ruben has massive potential and has served effectively as a member of the New York City Council,” Comrie said. “My prayers are with him and his family during this difficult time.”

The PRESS of Southeast Queens reached out to the office of U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Jamaica) for comment on the decision, but did not receive a response in time for print. In May, Meeks said that he would support Wills’ bid for re-election as there was no evidence to doubt the councilman’s ability to serve his constituents.

On the campaign trail, one of the candidates looking to replace Wills in November said that he was sad to see the results of Wills’ trial.

“I first met Council Member Ruben Wills in 2010,” community activist and 28th Council District candidate Richard David said. “He has always been respectful, caring and highly personable with a great sense of humor.”

David said that he had worked with the councilman’s office on projects in the past through numerous city agencies and admired his ability to get things done for his constituents.

“Mr. Wills was driven by his desire to transform our district in the way he transformed his own life,” David said. “Mr. Wills was brought up in South Jamaica Houses and rose from humble beginnings to become a leader in our district. His story is one of hope and hard work. Yesterday’s verdict can never take this inspiration away or hinder the dreams of other young people with aspirations to better our community.”

David asked that people not remember Thursday’s jury decision, but instead Wills’ “humble beginnings and all that he sought to do for the community.”

“My prayers are with Mr. Wills, his family and his staff,” David said.

Wills’s trial had been a long time in the making. After more than three years of delays, the trial finally kicked off on July 5. The councilman could face further legal troubles, including a pending trial for his alleged failure to disclose certain aspects of his finances to the Campaign Finance Board.

Sentencing is currently scheduled for Aug. 10.

 

HOW INTERESTING, THE JAMAICA GOOD OLE BOYS & THE QUEENS DEM MACHINE PLOP UP COMMUNITY BOARD 12 PRESIDENT FOR RUBEN WILLS COUNCIL SEAT

AND this is what is wrong with Jamaica and why Jamaica will continue to be a shit hole ghetto and nothing more. AND this is also what is wrong with the Queens Democratic Machine, they don’t care about communities (well at least certain communities) and their constituents.

When corrupt Ruben Wills (City Council District #28) was on trial for corruption, Congressman Gregory Meeks and the crooked Queens Democratic Machine still backed him. Now that Wills is heading to prison, all of a sudden the Machine needed a new puppet to throw into the mix, which several folks were already candidates for the seat.

City Council District 28
Richard David, Democrat
Allan W. Jennings, Democrat
Hettie V. Powell, Democrat
Christina Winslow, Democrat

BUT see the crooked Queens Democratic Machine does not want competition or fresh blood, they want puppets to control and so they are plopping up Community Board 12 President Adrienne Adams. I mean why did Adams NOT throw her name into the hat before, knowing full well that Wills has been a total do-nothing and fraud. NO, they wait till their other puppet, Wills, got convicted and then scrambled for a replacement puppet.

This is the same bullshit with Adams and the Machine that happened last year, when she ran against state Sen. James Sanders Jr. (D-South Ozone Park) in the 10th Senate Democratic primary, whom the Machine did not back. She jumped into the race when Sanders announced his intention to go against Gregory Meeks in the 5th Congressional District. Sanders eventually dropped the bid, but Adams won the party’s endorsement. In the September primary, however, Sanders defeated Adams by 15 points and coasted to re-election in November.

So now we have the similar bullshit playing all over again.

Adams stated:

“Community and service are not empty words, but are the principles that have guided my life,” Adams said in a statement issued by her campaign. “As I campaign to represent the people of the 28th Council District, I am proud to have the support of Congress Members Crowley and Meeks, and look forward to partnering with them and my many friends in the City Council to improve the economic opportunity, transportation options, and overall quality of life in Rochdale, Jamaica, Richmond Hill and South Ozone Park.”

BUT ADRIENNE, if you wanted to represent the people, why didn’t you put your name in the hat, when crooked and do nothing Wills was on the ballot and was not on trial yet. See, this does not bode well and sounds way too “political”. If you have such best interests in the community, why didn’t you put your name on the ballot then. BECAUSE you did not want to go against that crooked Queens Dem Machine, who was backing Wills at the time.

MAJOR ASSHOLE Joe “The Godfather Crowley stated”

“The people of Queens deserve honest representation and a City Council member who will fight tirelessly for the best interests of the community. Adrienne Adams has proven time and again that she knows what this community needs and how to build the coalitions necessary to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. I’m proud to support her campaign for City Council.”

BUT when do nothing and crooked Wills was still on the ballot, you backed him Crowley, you did not put up Adams, so Crowley, YOU and the CROOKED QUEENS DEM MACHINE do not have the best interests of the community or the constituents (which look at what Jamaica looks like, that tells the REAL STORY), because if you really did, you would NEVER have backed the incumbent Wills from the get go, knowing full well he had DONE NOTHING for the community and his past was extremely shady.

Now while I feel that Adams really does care about this community and wants to do everything she can to help improve it, this whole thing smells too much of typical politics where the community and constituents take a backseat so that the Queens Dem Machine can always stay in power and keep new and fresh blood out of the picture, while they CONTROL ALL.

THAT IS NOT DEMOCRACY. You are just taking a page out of the playbook of the person you all constantly criticize, TRUMP.

AND so the Jamaica clown car circus and good ole boys club continues while the Jamaica community continues to suffer.

BUT people in that district, you still have the FINAL SAY SO. Don’t let the bully Queens Democratic Machine dictate for you. It did not work last time and Sanders won his seat by a large margin. AND I will say this to Senator James Sanders, Jr., at least he does not bow down to the Queens Democratic Machine. Sanders is actually endorsing Hettie Powell, going against the machine again. Good for him.

BOY, the stench of MENDACITY fills the community of Jamaica and the Queens Borough. In the meantime, we have this.

WHITE LIMOUSINE LIBERAL COUNCILMAN RORY LANCMAN AT IT AGAIN PLAYING THE RACE CARD TO ABSOLVE PEOPLE OF THEIR OWN ACTIONS & BEHAVIORS

White Limousine Liberal Councilman Rory Lancman is playing the race card as he always does, but even more so, because, well, it is election time and he wants as many votes as possible,  but is his ploy to constantly play the race card and absolve people from their own actions or behavior going to help him or hurt him.

Lancman like many of these way too lefty liberals does not want people to be accountable for their own behavior or actions and uses the race card in his bid for “criminal justice”. LOOK Lancman, if statistics prove that the majority of turnstile jumpers are Black and Hispanic, then 2+2=4 and the majority of folks arrested will be Black & Hispanic, they are not going to be Japanese or Middle Eastern or Jewish. This is what is known as BASIC MATH, so what the fuck don’t you get Lancman.

But then Lancman lives in a community, where he, like many NYC local elected officials don’t have to deal with all the nonsense that goes on in communities like Jamaica. Constant loitering at all times of the night in front of apartment buildings or bodegas talking loudly, drinking or blasting music. His block does not look like a garbage dump because of low-class people throwing all kind of garbage and litter on streets, sidewalks, people’s yards and in front of their buildings and homes. He does not have to deal with young folks pulling up in a car late at night in front of his place, blasting music at 11pm on weekdays, while they talk to their homies and make noise.

Places like Jamaica and others like it NEED LAWS to be enforced, not “get out of jail free cards” or make people not responsible for their behavior and actions. WHY do white liberals always pull this bullshit, yet their own communities where they live look nothing like places like Jamaica nor do they have all the nonsense and bullshit from people doing the fuck whatever they want. After a day’s work (if you can call it that), Lancman goes home and relaxes for the night, he does not have to hear music blasting, horns beeping, people loitering and talking loudly late at night, while hard working people just want to relax and have a good night’s sleep.

But this is what especially white lefty liberals do, they play the race card while being “out of sight, out of mind”. These “white limousine liberals” actually do more damage to communities of color, especially communities with high crime, than the culprits themselves.

Lancman, part of your district is Rufus King Park. Have you been to the park lately, especially after the $2.2 million dollar upgrades. Well, let me show you a part of your district and what it looks like. Lancman, if you are going to talk the talk, you NEED TO WALK THE WALK instead of making a u-turn to Limousine Liberal Alley and telling people “you are not responsible for your own behaviors or actions because you are Black or Hispanic”. DAMN, talk about a form of racism.

Rufus King Park

Damn, that white boy in the back is cutting up some good shit.

From Times Ledger:

‘Get out of jail free’ Lancman at it again

Here we go again with another bill of so-called “criminal justice reform” from City Councilman Rory Lancman (“Fare evasion data needs close scrutiny,” TimesLedger, July 21).

Mr. Lancman bemoans that the 90 percent black or Latino arrestees for theft of services — fare evasion — in 2017 faced a criminal record, time on Rikers island, or deportation for immigrants. According to the penal law of New York state, theft of services is a Class A misdemeanor (165.15), and should be rightly enforced by the NYPD. But “Get Out of Jail Free” Lancman is again playing the stale race card, assuming that the enforcement is racial discrimination just because the statistics indicate that people of color are predominate offenders. No such conclusion is a sound statistical inference from fare evasion data, but rather a bias of the liberal agenda to blame society for the social ills of autonomous individual miscreants.

 So now that Lancman falsely perceives a racial disparity in mere raw data is “contrary to our values,” and impacting “certain communities unfairly,” he wants to require more wasteful bureaucratic red tape in NYPD reporting of race, gender and age of arrestees.

Then what? Lancman alleges the bill will “rectify this problem” of untimely analysis of trends purporting his racial bias hypothesis. However, the problem is miscreants breaking the law, and is neither the NYPD enforcing the law nor the criminal courts adjudicating the law?

But for Lancman, people of color are to be issued “Get Out of Jail Free” cards, in any which way, since they are not responsible for their criminal actions — but the white hegemonic system is the devil? Lancman’s agenda is fallacious, racist and antithetical to the foundations of criminal, justice.

Our biggest problem is Lancman, not the city prosecution of criminal suspects in an “overzealous fare evasion enforcement.”

District 24 constituents had better closely scrutinize Lancman’s racially tinged record before the next election to see that it illustrates little public safety benefit to this district or to the city at large. In fact, more criminals are at large now because of his obsolete, crackpot and liberal ideology of social engineering, vis-a-vis criminal justice reform. We DONT need this guy in the Council!

MORE JAMAICA GHETTO NONSENSE BY ARMED GHETTO HOOD RATS – JUST ANOTHER NORMAL DAY IN JAMAICA

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.
