JAMAICA PHOTO OF THE CENTURY: THE UNIVERSAL SOUL CIRCUS GOES TO ALBANY – YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE THIS SHIT UP

Twelve years as council member knowing this issue as well as many others.

Many know I Photoshop photos especially when it comes to our asshole elected ebony clown posse here in SE Queens, BUT the below is not Photoshop, it is REAL courtesy,  of Senator Leroy Comrie’s email newsletter. HOW APPROPRIATELY TITLED!!

They make it SO EASY most of the time. Wonder if Sander’s bow tie squirts water.

FROM THE GREAT SMELLING JAMAICA WONDER BREAD FACTORY TO THE POISONOUS STENCH OF REGAL RECYCLING (1991) & ROYAL WASTE (2011) AND ALL THE ELECTED OFFICIAL INVOLVED AT THE TIME OF THIS DUMPING OF POISON INTO THE COMMUNITY

Royal Waste comprises the entire blue rectangle. As can be seen thousands of homes and a park are at risk.

Royal Waste Service, the biggest culprits

Royal Waste Service, the biggest culprits

Finally I have found out some information that I have been trying to get for some time now and that is when the poisonous, polluting, toxic and irresponsible neighbors in Jamaica, both Regal Recycling &  Royal Waste Services came into existence in Jamaica at Douglas Avenue and who were the elected officials at that time. Well, after some digging, I now have some answers but not all of them

Before the polluting and irresponsible Royal Waste came to be at Douglas Ave and 168th St, there was the Wonder Bread Factory (for 130 years), which closed in January of 2011. Yet even then, a few blocks east sat the also poisonous foul smelling recycling waste station, Regal Recycling Company at 172-06 Douglas Avenue, which I am not sure when that place was dumped into Jamaica, but in 2009, three men were killed horribly in a toxic pit and they were given a permit to manage solid waste back in 1991. Regal has had many major violations during it’s history and is still in operation in Jamaica.  Royal Waste obviously then was dumped not too long after the closing of the Wonder Bread Factory in 2011.

So during this time line what elected officials were in office, who obviously gave the go ahead for these places and from my calculations since I am not quite sure of when Regal Recycling actually started (1991?):

  1. Mayor David Dinkins followed by Rudy Gulliani followed by Michael Bloomberg
  2. Queens Borough President Claire Schulman  followed by Helen Marshall
  3. Councilman Archie Spigner  followed by Leroy Comrie
  4. Senator Dean Skelos followed by Senator Malcolm Smith , both are in prison on corruption charges
  5. Congressman Floyd Flake followed by Gregory Meeks
  6. Assembly Member William Scarborough , in prison

So these are the folks who were all in office during the time line of these poisonous waste stations dumped in Jamaica. Seems like the same crew responsible for so much bullshit and misery in this community and yet a couple of them are still in office and still NOT looking out for the community, while some of the others like Flake & Spigner are still pulling strings. So if fingers need to be pointed, this is the crew to point them at.

For you history buffs and others here are some interesting articles on the subject that I found. AND you find out just what BAD Neighbors these companies actually are not the good neighbors that Royal Vice President Mike Reaki claims.

3 Men Die in Toxic Well in Queens

Theodore Parisienne for The New York Times

A relative of one of the dead men was initially kept out of the treatment plant by police officers.

Published: June 29, 2009

Three workers at a waste transfer station in Queens were overcome by toxic fumes Monday afternoon and died, apparently falling one after another into the Stygian gloom of a putrid, manhole-size, 18-foot-deep well they were trying to vacuum, fire officials said.

The New York Times

The accidents occurred at a waste transfer station in Jamaica, Queens.

Ethan Wilensky-Lanford

Rene F. Rivas, 52, a native of El Salvador, apparently fell trying to rescue the others.

A rope and ladder dangling into the hole, which was filled with deadly concentrations of hydrogen sulfide gas, and the accounts of witnesses at the scene suggested to the authorities that one victim had fallen first to his death and that the other two had followed in successive, futile rescue efforts.Firefighters found the bodies — including those of a father and son — floating face down in four feet of murky water at the bottom of the hole at the Regal Recycling Company at 172-06 Douglas Avenue in Jamaica, an ugly street of waste plants, garbage scows and sheds enclosed by chain-link fences and topped by fluttering American flags.

“I don’t know if they knew the exact danger,” John Sudnik, deputy assistant fire chief of the Queens Borough Command, told reporters at the scene. “In that type of atmosphere, it’s very toxic.”

The police identified the victims as Shlomo Dahan, 49, of Flushing, Queens, the owner of the S. Dahan Piping and Heating Corporation, the South Ozone Park contractor hired to clean the well; his son Harel Dahan, 23, of East 73rd Street in Brooklyn; and Rene Francisco Rivas, 52, of Jamaica Avenue in Queens, a native of El Salvador who was an employee of Regal Recycling.

The bodies were raised to the surface by firefighters using a hoist and ropes and harnesses that were carried into the well by Firefighter Robert Lagnese, 33, of Rescue Squad 270, a six-year fire veteran trained to work in confined spaces. He wore protective clothing and an enclosed breathing apparatus, and though he suffered no apparent ill effects, he was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center for observation.

Chief Sudnik said the concentration of hydrogen sulfide in the hole was measured at 200 parts per million, double the amount that environmental experts consider “imminently dangerous.” He said an exposure to 50 parts per million could be lethal within 10 minutes, suggesting that concentrations four times that amount would be deadly in a much shorter time.

While the source of the hydrogen sulfide in the hole was unknown, the chief called the gas a common byproduct of the decomposition of organic matter. Employees at Regal said the hole was a catch basin for runoff water that was probably laced with chemical debris from the recycling yard, where trucks deliver garbage and other materials, much of it from construction sites.

Behind the hole is a 40-foot multistory shed, with bays where the trucks pull up with materials to be sorted for recycling. Signs indicate the types: “Putrescible” and “Non-Putrescible,” separating solid wastes from those that are likely to become rotten. Another sign at the gate says: “No drums, asbestos, hazardous materials, medical waste or tires.”

The industrial neighborhood, which stands on the south side of Douglas Avenue opposite the Long Island Rail Road tracks, is crowded with waste collection companies and adrift in odors that suggest rotting food and oil. The avenue is littered with oil stains, broken glass and dirty piles of something resembling eggplant.

Mr. Dahan and his son, who arrived at the well in a truck equipped with suction equipment to vacuum it out, were joined by Mr. Rivas. Reconstructing what happened from witness accounts and other evidence at the scene, Chief Sudnik said that Harel Dahan apparently went first into the hole, which is about 3 feet in diameter, descending a ladder affixed to a rope shortly after 2 p.m.

It was unclear how far down he went before being overcome by the toxic fumes, and it was unclear if he was killed by the fumes or drowned in the water at the bottom, officials said. In any case, when he did not return, his father went down after him. He, too, was overcome and fell into the water below. Mr. Rivas, in turn, went down, apparently in an attempt to rescue the others, and was overcome and fell to the bottom.

Oscar Rivas, 27, Mr. Rivas’s son, said firefighters told him that his father had been the third to die, in an attempt to save the others. “They told me it was an accident, that he saw two men fall into the hole, and he jumped in to try and help them,” Mr. Rivas said. “He was always like that, always helping people. He was a good person.”

Witnesses were heard screaming, and a call was made to 911 at 2:32 p.m., fire officials said. The first trucks arrived at 2:39 p.m., but apparently it was already too late.

But firefighters called Consolidated Edison and asked for assistance in a rescue operation. Con Edison sent two vacuum trucks to help clear debris, but while they were en route the request for assistance was canceled. D. Joy Faber, a utility spokeswoman who talked to a Con Edison worker at the scene, said “it was discovered that there were three victims that had expired.”

The task of recovering the bodies, with a device called a high-point anchor rescue system — a rig that holds hoisting ropes steady over a hole — took about 20 minutes, Chief Sudnik said.

As a crowd of people gathered at the gates, Abe Rosenthal, who identified himself as a longtime friend of Shlomo Dahan, said the contractor had been born in Israel and owned his own company, which cleaned storm drains. It was unclear how much experience the Dahans had in dealing with highly toxic material, and it was unknown if they had been warned of the dangers.

Mr. Rosenthal speculated that “they had no idea that there was gas.”

“He was a very sweet guy,” Mr. Rosenthal said of the elder Mr. Dahan. He said Mr. Dahan was married and the father of three sons and a daughter. “I can’t believe that it happened,” he said.

Peter Ferrier, 49, a neighbor of Rene Rivas, said Mr. Rivas lived with his wife, a son and another family, and recalled that he had seen him going to work on Monday, clad in jeans and a T-shirt and carrying his customary black and red backpack.

“I saw him with his bag,” Mr. Ferrier said. “He was taking off, and he said, ‘What’s up, Papi?’ Mr. Ferrier said he rarely saw Mr. Rivas because he was always working. “This man always works, every day he goes to work.”

Efforts to reach officials of the company were not immediately successful. Calls to Regal Recycling and to Royal Waste Services, an adjacent plant at 172-08 Douglas Avenue that is believed to be affiliated with Regal, were answered by people who declined to speak. Regal is owned by Michael Reali.

According to state records, the commercial plant is run by M. & P. Reali Enterprises, doing business as the Regal Recycling Company. A man who answered the phone at the plant said the company had no immediate comment.

The Web site of the State Department of Environmental Conservation describes the plant as a solid waste transfer station and recyclables handling and recovery plant, which is authorized to handle putrescible waste, as well as construction and demolition debris.

From 2000 to 2002, according to government records, the plant petitioned the Department of Environmental Conservation and the city’s Department of Sanitation for permission to increase its capacity for the management of putrescible solid waste more than threefold, to 1,200 cubic yards (600 tons) per day from 355 cubic yards (177.5 tons) per day.

The proposal, which the two agencies found would not have a negative effect on the environment, called for maintaining the plant’s capacity for handling construction and demolition debris but decreased the permitted on-site storage capacity for such debris.

According to the Environmental Conservation Department, the company has had a permit to manage solid waste since 1991. Its current permit allows for a daily capacity of 600 tons per day of solid waste and 266 tons per day of construction and demolition debris. The department intends to send staff members to inspect the plant, said a department spokeswoman, Maureen Wren.

In 2006, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined the plant $1,500 after a worker was crushed to death by a Caterpillar wheel-loader the previous year, according to federal records. The Daily News reported that the worker, Effraine Calderone, 46, an immigrant from El Salvador, had been leaning against the wheel of the massive tractor when the driver put the machine in gear and rolled over him.

Records from the most recent OSHA inspection, conducted earlier this year, show that the federal agency identified several serious violations at the plant, including violations concerning floor and wall openings and holes, industrial stairs, respiratory protection, medical services, and oxygen-fuel gas welding and cutting. The company was directed to pay thousands of dollars in penalties in connection with those violations.

From The Daily News:

End of an era as Wonder Bread plant in Jamaica, Queens ready to shut off the ovens

capture

Wonder Bread’s parent company, Hostess, is closing down the Jamaica, Queens plant.

(Harbus for News)

A Wonder Bread plant in Queens will bake its last loaves Thursday, ending a 130-year run in Jamaica while hundreds of employees scramble for jobs or settle for lesser-paying gigs.

Wonder Bread’s parent company, Hostess, is laying off 175 workers and reassigning 15 from the Douglas Ave. facility, corporation officials said.

Bitter bakers fretted about their fates after attending a job fair at the plant Wednesday.

Employees said they earn between $40,000 and $70,000, while job fair recruiters – including Bartlett Dairy and Elmhurst Dairy – offered annual salaries of $30,000 or less.

“It’s an insult,” said Edwin Ramos, 46, a factory painter who has worked for Wonder Bread for 25 years. “It’s a joke, a big joke.”

Another employee griped that unemployment benefits would pay more than the jobs being advertised at the fair, such as bus drivers and guards at JFK and LaGuardia airports.

But City Councilman Leroy Comrie (D-St. Albans), who helped organize the fair with the city Workforce1 Career Center,described the event as “well organized.” He stressed that jobs may start with low salaries and go up.

“There may be a better opportunity than they realize,” he said.

Opened in the 1870s as the Shults Bread Co., the bakery began producing Wonder Bread in the 1920s. Nostalgic locals recalled factory tours with free samples of sweet bread.

But Hostess announced last year that modernizing the bakery would be too costly and difficult.

The decision to close the facility left employees surprised and angry.

Ramos said he accepted a job at the Hostess garage across the street that pays $2.25 less per hour than his painting gig.

“For the last three months, they’ve had a noose around our necks and are choking us a little more each day,” said truck driver Gary Roberts, 59.

Another employee jokingly asked a reporter Wednesday, “You don’t have jobs for us?”

Hostess plans to sell the site. “For Sale” signs from CB Richard Ellis, one of the world’s largest commercial real estate firms, are posted on both the bakery and the garage.

The adjacent outlet store, where shoppers are greeted by ads with Captain Cupcake and Twinkie the Kid, will remain open and relocate elsewhere in Queens when the factory is sold, company officials said.

QUEENS BP KATZ PUTS IN HER TWO CENTS ON WILLETS POINT CLEAN-UP – BUT WHAT ABOUT THE NEW WILLETS POINTS IN JAMAICA, MERRICK BLVD – A FUCKING DISGRACE

Garbage & Cars6.18.16 058Sure the all the crappy auto shops in Willets Point have been shut down as the City begins another huge money project, but where have they gone. Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, who has no authority over the project but has made it a focus this year, asks: Why wait? And she’s right to ask. Environmental and infrastructure work has to be done no matter what.

Well, Katz, how about the New Willets Point in Jamaica on Merrick Blvd where thug auto body shops have turned that area into a fucking mess of junked and unlicensed vehicles all over Merrick Blvd and the sidewalks and many of the residential side streets. And since Merrick is a heavily traveled road of cars, taxi, liver vans, buses, etc, allow these shops to take up the entire right land in certain section causing a hazardous condition plus bottle necking, I would think Katz who has made trips to Jamaica to talk about the Jamaica Now Action Plan, would speak up about this mess. I mean the local elected officials like Senator Comrie and Councilman Miller have not uttered one word about this disgrace, especially since the area has churches, a senior citizen apartment complex and residential homes are all around.

BUT nope, nothing from the Evil White Queens and her ebony clown posse. Just more ghetto nonsense where respect and pride are harder to find than a unicorn or a hard working Jamaica elected official. START ENFORCING LAWS with these Auto Body Shops which have completely taken control of this area. SO WHERE  THE HELL ARE YOU KATZ. Would you allow this SHIT in your neighborhood? AND where are the so-called black leaders on this issue that stares all of you in the face every single day. Garbage & Cars6.18.16 115Garbage & Cars6.18.16 111

From AM New York:

willetsStart cleanup to clear path for Willets Pt.

It’s quiet at Willets Point. The New York Mets are at spring training in Florida. And most of the auto body shops on 126th Street, across from Citi Field, are closed, with demolition of the ramshackle buildings underway.

While that’s progress, the former industrial zone tucked away in a corner of Corona is a long way from being the hub of economic activity NYC officials envisioned a decade ago. The 62 acres just beyond the stadium’s rightfield wall could and should be a regional centerpiece, home to a retail mall and a hotel, to jobs and economic development, to sports and entertainment, and to affordable housing.

Besides the seasonal flow of Mets fans, Willets Point would become a destination if the proposed AirTrain to LaGuardia gets off the drawing boards. No matter what the vision, the site remains a cesspool of unsewered property, unpaved roads and land in desperate need of environmental remediation.

Part of the problem with advancing the overall development of Willets Point is that it is mired in legal battles over whether the Citi Field parking lot is parkland and can’t be used as the site of a mall. The state Court of Appeals will hear arguments in the case on April 25.

Still, there is much NYC can do. Beyond ongoing demolition, there’s significant cleanup and infrastructure needed to prepare for new construction. The city’s Economic Development Corp. said most of the remediation will not begin until the lawsuit is settled and final plans are agreed upon by the city and the developers, a combination of Related Companies and Sterling Equities, which owns the Mets.

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, who has no authority over the project but has made it a focus this year, asks: Why wait? And she’s right to ask. Environmental and infrastructure work has to be done no matter what. Developers and city officials should do more now. That would hasten an already long-delayed timetable, and would be a sign that they’re committed to the project.

Now is the time to start. The city and the developers have to find a way to move Willets Point forward.

 

QUEENS COURIER GUEST OP-ED GIVES ADVICE TO TRUMP AS BLACK HISTORY MONTH ENDS – YOU NEED TO GIVE ADVICE TO BLACK LEADERS IN COMMUNITIES LIKE JAMAICA

Hala Live Slaughterhouse (92-56 165th St) right in the middle of downtown Jamaica and yes those are apartment going up across from it.

Hala Live Slaughterhouse (92-56 165th St) right in the middle of downtown Jamaica and yes those are apartment going up across from it.

Guest Courier Op-Ed, Julian Phillips, gives some advice to Trump as Black History Month comes to an end, but the advice that needs to be given is to black leaders in communities like Jamaica, for standing on the side lines for way too long allow quality of issues to pile up like 50 Cent’s debt and we are not talking about tough issues that local elected officials have little to do with like unemployment, but every day quality of life issues which have not gotten addressed or solved no matter how many times both myself and Jamaica community activist Pamela Hazel, have brought up the same old issues along with documentation for years. Issues like illegal truck driving on residential streets, illegal parking by tractor trailer trucks and other box trucks all over this community, continuous garbage dumping be it the typical Jamaica slobs dropping of litter to the illegal garbage dumping that does on or how about the thug auto body shops take over of Merrick Blvd, side streets and sidewalks with junked and unlicensed vehicles which has actually gotten worse each year to an alarming rate pretty much turning Merrick Blvd into the new Willets Point. And these are just a few issues that have been going on not only for years, but in some cased decades. Long time so-called black leaders like Leroy Comrie, Gregory Meeks, Archie Spigner, Floyd Flake, Malcolm Smith, William Scarborough, Vivian Cook, Helen Marshall, her replacement,  Lilly white Melinda Katz and all the others in this area who call themselves “leaders” or “community advocates” or “ministers”, have done pretty much shit in regards to these issues, which are a local issue and that every single one of them have pretty much ignored.

Senator Leroy Comrie, when he was Councilmember, would state that Jamaica has one of the highest asthma rates around and that is true, yet the poisonous Royal Waste company was given a green light to set up shop right smack in the downtown area near hundreds of homes, near a Senior Citizen NYCHA apartment, across the street from Detective Keith Williams Park, where kids play, swim and play football and sorcerer, all during his reign  and to this day is still there spewing poison into the air with their non-stop garbage waste trucks that come from all over the city and these trucks spew their diesel fuel emission in the air 24/7 on residential streets. Yeah, we have a fucking epic asthma problem Comrie and it is because of shit like Royal Waste which these black leaders like Comrie allowed to get plopped in the middle of a residential area. I don’t see Melinda Katz’s hood having a waste station to poison her kids or all the little Jewish boys and girls, but I guess, low-income Black, Hispanic and other ethnic children are expendable in their mind and don’t matter as much as the little white and Asian boys and girls in Forest Hills. Then all of those auto body shops along Merrick Blvd (and who knows what they do with their poison fluids from cars) don’t help the asthma situation either.garbage-1-23-17-003

Every other day, another homeless shelter is dumped into this community and another hotel is turned into a supposedly “temporary” homeless shelter. Homeless encampments are easily seen at Jamaica Center, LIRR/Sutphin Blvd and 179th Street Station and getting worse every day. The garbage and litter is completely out of control in this community, though the blame goes to the low-class ghetto slobs who have no respect or pride. But then how can one have respect or pride when people like Comrie, Flake, Katz and others have no respect or pride for this community regardless of the bile that comes out of the side of their mouths.

AND then we have the local media, from Times Ledger to Communties of Color who are NOT questioning any of these elected officials and other leaders on WHY. WHY is Royal Waste still here? WHY was it put here in the first place in a residential area? WHY are slaughterhouses right in the heavily traffic downtown area near York College, residents and the shopping district? WHY is nothing being done about auto body shops destroying Merrick Blvd?  I have yet seen any of these local publication ask any such questions and DEMAND and answer. hillside-garbage12-4-16-013

So as Black History Month comes to a close, maybe Julian Phillips has some advice to these Black leaders of Jamaica and SE Queens or the least tell them to hold their heads in shame, oh though at this point, they have lost any type of shame or dignity. In fact they should lose their black card due to the obvious crimes against black constituents to be able to live in a decent, clean and civilized community like most white people do in their communities. No one is asking to shoot for the moon, just a clean and decent area where one can breathe without taking in poisonous wastes and diesel fuel emission 24/7. I don’t think that is much to ask for and local media including COMMUNITIES FOR COLOR, need to start being journalist instead of big jokes pushing the agendas of these do nothings and crooks in the making.

Like most of President Trump’s roll-outs in his first two weeks in office, his White House gathering of African Americans to salute Black History Month was a little rough to say the least!

 For starters, not knowing that the world’s best known abolitionist died in the 1800s was a laugher. Perhaps even worse, his gathering of Black ‘supporters’ for the press availability left a lot to be desired.

Let’s forget about the fact that he had to be introduced to more than half of them—and who were these folk? The best known individual on hand was conservative political commentator Armstrong Williams, he himself not a household name in the African American community.

Going back in time, I’ll call them Trump’s version of Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus—a rap star, comedian, football Hall of Famer (I love you Jim!), and the clown Ringmaster himself, Don King, all summoned to Trump Tower to presumably talk about the state of Black America. Really?!

What about some politicians and community leaders who have devoted a lifetime to civil rights and substantive change? Rep. Elijah Cummings says he’s open to meeting with Trump. I can assume there must be others.

Rest assured there are some black politicians that might not want that optic—but many will certainly meet him behind closed doors. Here’s the thing: Trump wants to make good on his campaign promises. How could the ‘messiah’—the reformer of all of America’s ills — not deliver, especially to his African Americans?

Remember we are ‘his’ as he yelled out to that one polka dot in a sea of Whites during a campaign stop as “My African American.”

The fact of the matter is, from building a wall to telling Blacks they have “nothing to lose” by voting for him, this president wants all the glory! He simply can’t help himself.

So what should he do for Black History Month? Trump should invite to the White House Black America’s best movers and shakers from the business world, law enforcement, the political arena and grass roots community leaders and, yes, the Rev. Al Sharpton for a summit.

Something good just might come out of it. Remember, Sir Donald wants to look good. He would have to wind up adopting some proposals thrown at him. At the very least, he might form a commission or something to that effect to seem like he is actually committed to taking action.

To bring it all home, here’s something those network TV executives should do to make it interesting: propose doing a town hall with Trump and Black leaders to be aired in prime time. Can you imagine how many folks would tune in!

From the Alt Right to the Black Lives Matter movement, popcorn and chicken wings would be flying off the store shelves from folks waiting to plop in front of their flat screens for such an event! In what would guarantee to be a lively discussion, folks would want to see who blinks first! Again, maybe something good just might come out of it.

Just some advice from a black guy.

Jamaica is the next big thing says the so-called “leaders”, REALLY, because you certainly would not know it looking around this garbage strewn, homeless shelter, ghetto mess of a community with the incompetent black political gangsters who either are in denial, plain stupid, lazy, corrupt,  collecting a paycheck or all of those. Just the other day, Senator Leroy “Do Nothing” Comrie and his clown posse of Jamaica leaders endorsed Bill deBlasio for the next election with Comrie stating:

“I know Bill de Blasio has been very responsive to the needs of Southeast Queens and, therefore, I believe that Bill de Blasio should be re-elected as mayor of the city of New York.”

You mean responsive like what Ms. Hazel took photos of and talked about with Carver Bank on Archer Avenue. I mean all three of the Jamaica stations (Jamaica Center, Sutphin Blvd/LIRR & 179 St) have already become homeless encampments, while homeless shelters galore keep popping out every other day and the “leaders” continue ignoring all the quality of life issues that would NEVER take place in a white community, NEVER. AND now Carver Bank at 159-20 Archer Avenue is the latest homeless shelter in this run down community that is completely out of control. And for those who say “poor homeless” how about poor hard-working tax payers that some have two jobs who have to constantly deal with this nonsense every fucking day that dumBlasio certainly does not nor Senator Schumer, both who have homes in Park Slope. So how many homeless are lodging in your local banks, HOW MANY?

And so the nonsense in Jamaica continues and continues and continues while folks like Katz, Comrie, Meeks and the others state “how great Jamaica is”

FUCK YOU.

From Pamela Hazel, Jamaica resident & Community Advocate:

Homeless are now banking at Carver.

carverThe homeless are now banking at Carver Saving Bank to shelter them from the coldness. This is yet another health hazard  in the black neighbourhood. Blacks face all sorts of suffering at the hands of black political bandits, aka political leaders.

They ignore every form of suffering perpetrated against black people. Now homeless occupants are using the ATM area as their quarters at nights; when the bank is closed. After, hearing much complaints, I tried using the ATM myself last week. The bank  is located at 159-02 Archer Avenue, Jamaica Queens, near the e-train station.

The  experience was stink and scary; two homeless persons were present. One was wrapped in a blanket; with his or her back turned away from the ATM. The other was sitting up straight with his head covered. His eyes were darting, then staring directly at me. The atmosphere was shitty.

The quality-of-life abuse seems to be non-stop. Hopefully, these political bandits would come to a tragic end; by means of prison or what ever else; they are useless. Yes, Blacks live in hell. Keep wondering why Trump is our president.

Depression and unemployment in the black neighbourhood are at an all time high. Yet, Borough President, Katz claims that she is building on her success. Sadly, blacks cannot count on black leaders; who have  recluse  them self from the plight. Worst yet, the Blacks  keep voting for the public bandits.

I called Carver today at (718)230-2900. After a few transfers; I spoke to Mr. Williams/ manager. He said that he will contact the appropriate person to resolve the problem. I asked him to please remove the homeless encampment. It is unsafe and unhealthy.
