Hope it wasn’t because he cut in front of him at the line. Not worth killing someone over La Pollera Colorada’s chicken.

Stop and Frisk works, let the police do their job. But Mayor DeBlasio wants to give out Mets tickets and business cards and his lovely wife does want the NYPD at all .

Stop n frisk had a 10% arrest rate

Cost the taxpayers millions when it was struck down as plainly unconstitutional.

Why are the least informed people always the loudest?

Hopefully the victim was one of those gang members that plague that area and not a regular guy.
