But no worries the cops upstairs are keeping us safe harrasing folks to open their knapsacks and bags. Heaven forbid they actually do any work and PATROL with their feet. Same thing with most of Jackson Heights. The cops suddenly can’t be bothered to actually patrol the neighborhood anymore. Crime us up in Jackson Heights. I blame the lack of Police patrol in favor of using our police to collect fines and tickets and harass in the process.
