Well, it looks like we are having at least one shooting where someone ends up dead every week,but we have shootings on a regular basis, but sometimes the bullets miss. The big difference this time, the shooting was not in South Jamaica, but in very nice Cambria Heights. Well, shit does spread all round if you don’t flush it.

A Bronx man was found dead in Cambria Heights Saturday night after he was shot in the head in an incident that police have since ruled a homicide, the NYPD said.
Police said they responded to a 911 call just after 10 p.m. Saturday and found 33-year-old Jason Bragg lying unresponsive in the roadway in front of a home on 219th Street near 121st Avenue. The victim had suffered a gunshot wound to the head and EMS responders pronounced him dead at the scene, authorities said.
An investigation into the incident led police to rule Bragg’s cause of death as a homicide, police said Sunday morning.
Many residents of the quiet southeast Queens street said they did not hear anything during the shooting, and some still had not learned Sunday morning that anything had happened outside their homes.
One homeowner, who lives next door to the house police said the murder occurred in front of, said he heard a loud pop around 9:30 p.m. When he went to his window a little while later, he saw a man later identified as Bragg lying in the street.
“I saw someone in the street dead under a sheet,” said the man, who declined to give his name.
The homeowner said police could be seen outside on 219th Street until around 4 or 5 a.m. Sunday, and the home the shooting happened in front of was still blocked off with caution tape around 10 a.m.
The next-door neighbor, who said he has lived in the area his whole life, said the neighborhood had improved greatly over the years and crimes such as this one had become a rare occurrence.No suspects had been identified and the investigation was ongoing.
Why does the Queen song, “Another Bites The Dust” keep popping in my head. Oh yeah, another head gets blown off in Jamaica.
So much for the conference last week at York College “Fulfilling the Jamaica Promise”, unless shootings, murders and garbage are part of it.
So how many shootings and murders this year in Greater Jamaica? It seems to be at least one per week anymore.
This is what happens when a community allows people to do whatever the hell they want, a lack of any type of enforcement with quality of life issues, useless leaders and residents opposed to “Stop & Frisk”.
Have you noticed the increase of shootings since the “Stop & Frisk” ended? Not a coincidence. There is a reason certain communities should have Stop & Frisk and the Wild Wild West Jamaica should be one of them.
Wake up people, I mean what does it take. A little baby’s head blown off in front of his mother?
This community has some serious issues that go on again and again and again.
To use Councilman Ruben Wills words “It’s the people” and it certainly is, when you have bottom of the barrel people in your community, this is the kind of shit that happens.
