    When will the people if color stand up against this failed mayor and police chief

    • MarquinhoGaucho

      the mayor is responsible for parental failures? Unless you want to live in a Chinese style police state where you are monitored / surveilled 24/7 , or have Rodrigo Duterte style death squads….you have to except that the criminal element will exist. The only to drive it out is gentrification. Look at Brooklyn and Jersey City

        Yes this Mayor along with his useless police chief is responsible. I remember when NYX was a big crack house from do nothing mayor David Dinkins which you most likely would have supported, then came a true leader Mayor Guiliani whome you would have not supported and cleaned up the entire city. This is what true leaders do. Don't accept garbage nor accept what is going on. Wake up smell the coffee lost soul.
