Comment Section likely to be changed, please fill out survey

Feb. 19, 2017 Staff Report

The comment section of the Jackson Heights Post is likely to change following an increase in the number of mean-spirited responses in recent times.

The Jackson Heights Post’s comment section has rarely been moderated and that was largely because of the belief of “free speech,” as well as the sheer volume of them on a day-to-day basis. Between the Jackson Heights Post and the other sites that are part of the Queens Post, more than 100 comments come in per day.

A new comment system is likely to be put in place by March 1. Before that is done we would like your feedback.

Don’t change anything. These people would never have to balls to say what they say in public. It’s good to know how people really are. To the people that are offended don’t take the bait that’s how trolls get off

I want the people’s name because if they say something that will threaten my reign I want to sent off to jail. I will silence everyone under the guise of “protecting people from mean words” but I’m really trying to shut people up.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

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.
