  • celi01- are you implying that was only active when he was 14. Must have done something to still be targeted by rivals.

  • The shooter has not been caught and cannot even be identified bc it happened so fast. If it was rivals wouldn't they have wanted to make that known?
    I don't know everything or have answers but I do know that if we all United and work towards getting these young kids off the streets we can lessen the amount of people joining gangs. Who knows maybe in another 15 years have them off the streets completely. When you know better, you do better!

    An officer at a crime scene told me last Sat...he typically arrests 250 a year. His arrest number this year is 4. His excuse was that the Mayor passed an ordinance that tied his hands. No more stop and frisk.

    What is the truth? Are union workers engaged in a massive work slowdown to get what they want???? At the cost of citizen lives?

    Did the Mayor tie the hands of Police with the no stop and frisk ordinamce?

    Loretta Lynch in the Justice Department needs to add this to her list of imvestigations.

    What I see on the west skde is massive deployment where police stand around for hours doing nothing. No cops on week end nights because they are Detailed Out to other wards for entertainment crowd control. Bike Patrol and Foot Patroll hawking parking tickets instead of interacting and engaging in building community trust.

    The media and City Hall do not even mention the BLUE FLU AMD BLUE CODE lockstep going on now that the JD cites.

    What is all the grandstanding trying to glorify and make a department full of Heroes ??? (absolutely not true as lost 200mil in lawsuits prove). Good cops won't even out the bad cops. Definately misguided because when the city goes bankruot pensioneers stand to loose 7% of their pensions through bankruotcy court like Detroit.

    Time to face the fact that the Department needs a massive Culture change. The slaughter of citizens will comtinue to grow into every neighborhiod.

    Should we demonize,the political system that fostered fueled, aided abeited this mess?????
