Putting mentally ill people in these shelters is obviously not the answer. This mentally ill woman has a history of disappearing with her child and needs greater supervision. Where is her family and the father of the child? This building always has people smoking pot around it. A few years back this very shelter was the scene of a protest where its new upstanding residents came off buses holding signs telling protesters and onlookers to go back to China. A few months later this very shelter was the scene of a fight between a cab driver and a fare where the cab driver physically put a child out on the street, this made the news. What didn’t make the news was the fare, a woman, wanted to square her fare from Washington Heights with a sexual favor but wanted the child to remain in the car (being a concerned parent) the cab driver didn’t. On this strip of 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..

Homeless schizophrenics have a right to raise their children instead of the govt intervening and placing the child in a stable foster care situation….what could possibly go wrong?

Femme Fatality

Wrong…That’s why these kids end up missing and/or dead, genius…Schizophrenics belong in hospitals, force fed birth control pills, and mandatory tube ligations by age 28…Since they lack the mind to stay on their meds, most times…Much less, tolive daily without incident and accident…Children do not deserve to be brought into a world, with a parent who cannot take care of them properly… Especially because such a parent lacks the common sense to give the child, their other active parent in their lives…Who CAN actually care for them, without the instability and danger afoot, in their already fragile lives…These are small growing human beings, not mere life-like dolls, after all..
