This is DiBlasio’s NYC-quality of life crimes mean nothing to him. If this was a transgender person, these little hoodlums would be in jail already.


I hope they find these low life that don’t have no education and think because they are in a group they are F****** tough. Hope they catch them and throw them in jail where they belong.
