This happened while I was awake, don’t think I heard any gunshots. I swear I could have seen a minivan with a virginia license plate a day before yesterday. 3 shootings resulting in 3 fatalities and 1 injury in a mere 4/5 months. It seems like it’s getting more chaotic, for the past decade I’ve been here, I recount not a single shooting. I highly suspect the “Angel’s gentlemen club” to be a vector in the sprouting of these incidents!


Lol it seems like the trumpdullards failed to realize that talking about gun violence is not equalivent to being “anti-patriotic”. Celtic go back to the 50’s!

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
