I’m a senior living in Jackson Heights. Whenever I’ve been approached by an aggressive panhandler, I’m always prepared. I keep a $5.00 bill in my pocket. It’s worth the $5.00 not to be verbally abused and intimidated. One should never open their wallet. An elderly man in Corona recently did this and the young panhandler grabbed the wallet and ran.

Yes, it seems that many of these crimes follow this pattern. It’s almost always Black on Black, Black on White, Black on Asian, Black on Gay, Black on Immigrant etc violence. It is walking like and quacking like a duck.

And yet Mayor Dandyman Adams peacocks around town blaming “ghost guns” and fictional white supremacists.

I hope the victim recovers from this horrific incident. I hope the NYPD catches the perp and our revolving door justice system keeps him behind bars. What are our elected officials and police at the 115th precinct doing about the uptick in crime in the area? The perp doesn’t look like a JH resident. What was he doing here at that hour? The area used to be safe until the city dumped a bunch of drug addicts and mentally ill “into the community”. Frightening times.

Its amazing that every suspect photo is a person who’s non-white.
If it walks like a duck and acts like a duck……… yet everyone is “innocent”.
