A 25-year-old woman was shot in the ankle after a fight broke out at Lovell’s Afterdark Bar and Lounge on Merrick Blvd. in Queens.

A gunman with a .40-caliber pistol shot a 25-year-old woman attending a birthday celebration following a Queens bar brawl early Wednesday, police said.

The fight between two men broke out inside Lovell’s Afterdark Bar and Lounge on Merrick Blvd. in Laurelton around 3:40 a.m., cops said.

When the clash spilled out of the bar onto Merrick Blvd. near 224th St., several people, including the victim, went out to see what was happening, witnesses told police.

That’s when the gunman pulled his gun and fired off four rounds, striking the woman in the ankle.

Paramedics took her to Jamaica Hospital for treatment.

The gunman ran off and remained at large Wednesday.

Cops questioned the bar patron the gunman was fighting with, but he hasn’t been cooperative with police, officials said.

A Queens ex-con pleaded guilty on Friday to stealing an elderly woman’s house out from under her.

Darrell Beatty, 51, pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a forged instrument for using a phony deed to swipe Jennifer Merin’s Laurelton house out from under her.

As a result of the plea deal, he’ll get even more free housing — it calls for him to get a year in jail.

Merin, 72, said that’s not enough time.

“I’m glad he’s going to jail. He deserves to go to jail but I think that the sentence was too brief,” she told the Daily News after Beatty’s plea. “He lived in my house for longer than he will be in jail and he’ll be out on the streets again.”

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown acknowledged that Merin had been put through hell.

“The victim of this complicated con was thrown into a living nightmare when she discovered that her family’s home — filled with the precious memories and mementos of three generations — was being inhabited by squatters who had locked her out,” Brown said.

“Fortunately, the property now has been returned to its rightful owner and the defendant, in admitting his guilt to possessing a fake deed which transferred the property to him, faces time behind bars for his crime.”

First she discovered the locks had been changed — and then peeked through the windows to find her furniture and family heirlooms were missing.

She eventually found out an ex-con named Darrell Beatty was living inside with his two sons and a pit bull — but the cops said they couldn’t do anything because of the phony deed.

MAYOR COMES TO SOUTHEAST QUEENS, BUT NOT TO THE AREAS WITH MAJOR QUALITY OF LIFE ISSUES

I mentioned on this past Thursday (6.16.16) on by blog on about receiving a flyer at 6pm about the Mayor holding a town hall meeting in SE Queens on Thursday, June 16th at 7pm. I pretty much did not see this publicized anywhere, like the Mayor really did not want people to know and to make sure his town hall meeting was filled up with mostly  political lackey’s and ass kissers, but obviously there were some regular folks there since community members expressed concern over quality-of-life issues, including the preponderance of trucks illegally parking or operating in a reckless manner in the confines of the 105th Precinct. 

Well, where have I heard THAT before.

But what is ironic about this meeting, was that it was only for Rosedale, Laurelton and Springfield Gardens, which are the nicest neighborhoods in SE Queens/Greater Jamaica area. Sure they have  some quality of life issues, probably Springfield Garden has the most, BUT these three areas are the nicest of all of SE Queens, have the lowest crime rates and homeowners more than likely outnumber renters as well. Now you folks in those areas, tell me if I am wrong or right. Now other parts of SE Queens/Greater Jamaica area have well worst communities and way major quality of life issues, with South Jamaica being the worst (highest crimes, shootings, poverty, etc), followed by the Downtown Jamaica and surrounding area. So why not hold a town meeting in the places that really need a town hall meeting and really need quality of life issues addressed and really need proper services and major enforcement of quality of life issues.

Again, typical political bullshit of powers that be ignoring areas with the major problems, like they do not even exist. You see this bullshit with Queens Borough President Melinda Katz as well, who is always praising Downtown Jamaica, when there is not really much to praise but more to be criticized and major issues not being addressed.

AND why did the Times Ledger leave out the date of the town hall meeting. Because I am sure if people saw that date, they would say “I did not know about that.”

Mayor holds town hall in southeast Queens

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Councilman Donovan Richards field questions from concerned community members during a town hall at Springfield Gardens Educational Complex.

Mayor Bill de Blasio revealed a location for the long-awaited new police precinct in southeast Queens might be determined by the end of the summer.

The news about the $70 million 116th Precinct came in the midst of a two-hour town hall held at Springfield Gardens Educational Complex. The event was moderated by Councilman Donovan Richards (D-Laurelton).

Community members expressed concern over quality-of-life issues, including the preponderance of trucks illegally parking or operating in a reckless manner in the confines of the 105th Precinct.

De Blasio also expounded on what he said were the major successes throughout his administra­tion’s tenure, including universal pre-K as well as after-school programs for sixth through eighth graders.

“There are still parents who don’t know pre-K is available for free,” he said. “Every middle school is guaranteed an after-school seat.”

The mayor also said that citywide, murders were down 10 percent compared to the year before, with gun arrests up 20 percent. He contrasted his vision with previous administrations and critics.

“I said we need a safer city and a fairer city,” he said. “And there were many people saying you had to have one or the other.”

 

OH OH, WHAT YOU DOIN’ COUNCILMAN RICHARDS

Since Councilman Richards tends to be one of the more cleaner local elected officials, I will cut some slack on this issue……………………..but eyes are on you.

Don’t be like the other thug local elected officials, you seem to be above that.

Campaign Finance Board penalizes Richards

Photo by Michael Shain -Councilman Donovan Richards was assessed penalties stemming from eight violations in a 2013 special election, according to the New York City Campaign Finance Board.

The city Campaign Finance Board has penalized Councilman Donovan Richards (D-Laurelton) for what it contended was a misuse of public funds, though penalties that the board had previously issued to others suggest that the campaign’s missteps were not uncommon in city races.

The board made its determination of violations and penalties for Richards’ campaign during its regularly scheduled meeting May 12. Richards had received $39,372 in public funds and was penalized $3,416 for the violations.

Richards received eight violations in total, with penalties ranging from $50 to $1,525, with one violation drawing no penalty. Richards said the violations, such as failing to demonstrate that a Zipcar expenditure was used for the campaign, stemmed from novice mistakes in a grassroots run.

“It was my first time running for office. These are standard violations that could have probably been avoided, knowing what we do now,” he said. “You live and learn.”

The CFB supplies public funds for campaigns to assist candidates who may not have the means to run larger campaigns. A spokesman said the board conducts audits of every campaign after elections to ensure that the funds have been spent appropriately.

A median number of campaign penalties is not available for the 2013 campaign, but in a 2013 post-election report, the CFB analyzed violations from 2009 and found that the median penalty assessed per campaign was $3,786.

Richards ran and won in a special election in March 2013. He is the former chairman of the City Council’s Committee on Environmental Protection and the current chairman of the Committee on Zoning and Franchises. He represents District 31, which includes parts of Laurelton, Rosedale, Springfield Gardens, Bayswater, Hammels, Averne, Edgemere and Far Rockaway.

 

MONSTER BLIGHTED HOUSE IN LAURELTON/ROSEDALE HAS BECOME MONSTER EYESORE, GARBAGE DUMP AND JUNKYARD ON OTHERWISE PRISTINE STREET & NO ONE IS DOING A DAMN THING

Beautiful street and community, till you walk down the block to the corner of 223rd Street and 130th Ave

Beautiful street and community, till you walk down the block to the corner of 223rd Street and 130th Ave

This was sent to me via email from a person who is obviously so fed up with this MONSTER EYESORE of a HOUSE  (130-06 233rd St) which has also become a garbage dump and junk yard on an otherwise pristine block. So this issue has been going on for 8 long years and you are telling me that not one city official, not one elected official in this area has stepped up to the damn plate and addressed this properly and see that the situation is remedied. I mean look at that wood, can you spell termites. Look at the garbage. Looks at the junked cars.

A stop work order was placed years ago, back in 2008, but since then NOTHING ( http://a810-bisweb.nyc.gov/bisweb/PropertyProfileOverviewServlet?boro=4&houseno=130-06&street=233rd+St&go2=+GO+&requestid=0). And look at the number of complaints that have  been filed as well (http://a810-bisweb.nyc.gov/bisweb/ComplaintsByAddressServlet?requestid=1&allbin=4863289)

HOW IS THIS ACCEPTABLE, FOLKS. I mean this is one of the worst sights I have seen, especially considering the rest of the street and neighborhood. So if any of you wonderful people in charge want to do something, you can contact this person at gswiggan@aol.com

Here is the email I received.

MONSTER HOUSE at 233 street and 130th Ave on the boarder of Laurelton and Rosedale, has haunted this Queens neighborhood since 2008.
Now this MONSTER HOUSE has given birth to a GARBAGE DUMP and a JUNK YARD.
The Queens Borough Commissioner has refused to do anything outside of the stop work order placed on the MONSTER HOUSE in 2009.
This blight has plagued this neighborhood for over EIGHT (8) YEARS.

GUN BUYBACK PROGRAMS MAKE LEADERS FEEL GOOD, BUT EXPERTS SAY IT DOES NOTHING TO CURB GUN VIOLENCE.

Laurelton just had a Gun BuyBack Event (http://www.timesledger.com/stories/2016/17/gunbuyfollow_2016_04_22_q.html), which the Jamaica area has had a few over the years and of course leaders cream their pants over this, but does it really work in cutting violence. Experts say no and one does not need to be an expert to realize that do not work in this sense. I mean how many people in the Jamaica area where shot and/or killed by guns just this year alone.

Sure it sounds good on paper and makes leaders feel good, but what does it really accomplish besides giving these folks a pat on the back “Hey, we are doing something” regardless if it curbs gun violence.

From The Cincinnati Enquirer:

Gun buybacks popular but ineffective, experts say

Buyback campaigns more often than not end up with hunting rifles or old revolvers from someone’s attic than with automatic weapons that criminals might use, analysts say.

1515 7 LINKEDIN 136 COMMENTMORE

CINCINNATI — The rifles, pistols and shotguns always look impressive when they’re displayed at news conferences celebrating the end of gun buyback campaigns.

Spread across tables or piled high into overflowing stacks, all those weapons reinforce the notion that trading cash for guns works. It gets guns off the street, organizers say, and makes the city safer.

The problem, according to years of research, is that it does neither.

Cincinnati will join a growing list of cities this week that have embraced gun buyback programs in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut. The first of Cincinnati’s three planned gun buybacks for 2013 is Tuesday.

The local campaign begins as the national debate over gun violence is intensifying, and as President Barack Obama awaits recommendations this week from his task force on gun-related crime.

Researchers who have evaluated gun control strategies say buybacks – despite their popularity – are among the least effective ways to reduce gun violence. They say targeted police patrols, intervention efforts with known criminals and, to a lesser extent, tougher gun laws all work better than buybacks.

The biggest weakness of buybacks, which offer cash or gift cards for guns, is that the firearms they usually collect are insignificant when measured against the arsenal now in the hands of American citizens.

The government estimates there are more than 310 million guns in America today, nearly enough to arm every man, woman and child in the country.

“They make for good photo images,” said Michael Scott, director of the Center for Problem Oriented Policing, based at the University of Wisconsin’s law school. “But gun buyback programs recover such a small percentage of guns that it’s not likely to make much impact.”

The relatively small number of guns recovered isn’t the only problem, Scott said. Buyback programs tend to attract people who are least likely to commit crimes and to retrieve guns that are least likely to be used in crimes.

Scott and others say violent criminals – the people who do most of the shooting and killing – steer clear of buyback programs unless they’re trying to make some quick cash by selling a weapon they don’t want anymore.

That means buyback campaigns more often end up with hunting rifles or old revolvers from someone’s attic than with automatic weapons from the trunk of a criminal’s car.

“They don’t get a lot of crime guns off the street,” said Matt Makarios, a criminal justice professor who studied buyback programs while at the University of Cincinnati in 2008. “You’re only going to reduce the likelihood of gun crimes if you reduce the number of guns used in crimes.”

A buyback in Tucson, Ariz., last week collected about 200 firearms, many of them old or inoperable, in exchange for about $10,000 worth of grocery gift cards. A few hundred feet away, gun dealers set up tables and offered cash for any guns in good enough condition to resell.

“Every gun that came in was an old gun, no assault weapons,” Tom Ditsch, who watched the event, told The Associated Press. “They didn’t even take any weapons off the streets.”

Supporters: Buybacks save lives

Even with their shortcomings, Makarios said buyback programs have a few things going for them. They raise awareness about a serious problem. They also rally community groups to get more involved.

And they really do collect guns, an average of about 30 per event. Some big-city buybacks in Los Angeles and Seattle have brought in 2,000 or more guns in a single day.

When BLOC Ministries held a buyback two years ago in Cincinnati, it became a neighborhood happening that involved several churches and community groups. The program netted 50 guns, most of them old pistols and rifles.

Dwight Young, the director of BLOC Ministries, said he knows statistics show buybacks don’t put a dent in serious street crime. But he said the effort is worthwhile because, even if it doesn’t address the big problem, it still might save a few lives.

During the buyback, Young said a worried mom brought in a handgun she’d found in her 16-year-old daughter’s purse. The girl had been holding the gun for her boyfriend when her mom discovered it.

“Who knows what would have been done with that?” Young said. “We have to assume that we deterred some kind of crime, even if statistically it doesn’t show. I have to believe it’s worth the time.”

The United States is far and away the world’s leader in gun-related deaths, with more than 31,000 a year. Organizers of the upcoming buybacks in Cincinnati say taking some kind of action is better than doing nothing.

“If we can save one life, if we can stop one act of violence, if we can get a gun out of one person’s hands, we have made progress in the fight to end violence in our communities,” said Ennis Tait, pastor of Church of the Living God in Avondale.

But some say that energy could be better put to use in other ways. Alex Tabarrok, research director of the nonpartisan Independent Institute in Oakland, Calif., said investing in buyback programs makes little sense when study after study shows they don’t work.

A few researchers believe buybacks may even do some harm: A 1999 article in the Law and Order journal found that some people sold guns to police during buybacks and then used the money to buy new guns.

Tabarrok said buybacks consume thousands of dollars, most of it donated, that would be better spent on police overtime to put more officers on the street, or on other law enforcement efforts that are more likely to have an impact.

Programs ‘badly flawed’

Measuring the effectiveness of buybacks is tricky, given all the things that can influence crime rates. But several studies over the years have examined the weapons retrieved during buybacks and the level of gun violence in the months after the events.

Most reached the same conclusion: The guns collected usually aren’t the type used in crimes, and the impact of the buybacks on crime was “not statistically significant.”

So what does work? Makarios, now a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, said more stringent gun laws that limit access to certain weapons or require background checks are slightly more effective in reducing violence than gun buybacks. But not much more.

The most successful efforts involve old-fashioned police work, in which officers, probation departments and other law enforcement agencies work together to identify and target the biggest threats.

One program, known as “focused intervention,” singles out people with a history of criminal activity so police and probation officers can keep close tabs on them.

The approach is part carrot, part stick. Officers meet with high-risk individuals regularly to offer help through social service agencies – and to remind them they will land back in prison if they commit new crimes.

“It is focused on those people who are more likely to be involved in gun violence,” said Capt. Paul Humphries of Cincinnati police, which uses the program.

He wouldn’t discuss gun buyback programs, but police across the country are divided on the issue.

Scott, of the Center for Problem Oriented Policing, said most police departments now see buybacks as either a distraction, or as a harmless way to mobilize community groups. He said few believe they will solve the problem.

“There’s some merit to them,” he said. “But if they’re done with an eye to reducing intentional gun violence, there’s not much evidence they will.”
