thanks deblasio

this wouldnt have happened if we still had stop-and-frisk! police would have stopped this guy and found he had a penis on him and arrested him. thanks deblasio

Stop and frisk him...for hands?

He was unarmed, maybe save your racist rant for another post?

Protect Us

Rapists — They don’t stop. These Sexual Predators are in their own category and should be incarcerated permanently. These Sexual Predators are in the subway grabbing women, Molesting Children and it just must stop. They should be tagged with tracking devices which they must pay for or incarcerated. Keep Riker’s Island open and operating. Real foolish to spread dangerous people around this city.

NEVER answer your door without looking through the peephole and if it’s somebody you don’t recognize, call the police especially at that time of night/morning.

Deal with it!

And at 1:30am!!! You aren’t expecting anyone and they don’t answer your question: who is it? Leave it shut!


Another illegal alien committing a horrible crime. This is why we need to protect our boarders and only allow people who want to contribute to improving our great country.

Do you have any proof he's an illegal alien?

Any at all? Or just more Trump-lovin racism?

BTW you should probably learn how to spell “borders” before pretending you understand immigration policy.

Why has Trump completely failed to deliver one of his central campaign promises

Trump failed to get Mexico pay for the wall, he even failed to beg democrats for money. Deportations are down. Why is he so soft on crime?


trump forever – Just put the raids in the fail to deliver column along with Mexico paying for the wall, Trump care and pharmaceutical pricing reform. He did deliver that trillion dollar wealth transfer bill for his wealthiest backers although. Illegal immigration is a smokescreen for Republicans and Democrats and never will be fixed. It’s just a way to keep the excessively stupid at each other’s throats yelling and screaming while politicians rob us blind.

Random guy

animal , and yet they want to shut down Rikers Island and give everyone probation
