Another violent crime in yet another homeless shelter. The old Pan American on Queens Blvd. is constantly the scene of police activity. Further down Queens Blvd. there are numerous shelters, the Crown Motel (where a prostitute murdered a John with fentanyl) The Mets Motel ( where cops found and arrested 2 stick up creeps hiding out while serving a different warrant),The Quality Inn (which saw an infant death and in 2018 an assault of an employee of an auto shop next to the shelter by a resident of the shelter), The Days in (where an infant was found dead July 2018) Close these crime riddled shelters..

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.
