There are still a lot of tecatos down there, but to hear her father tell it, man the whole LES during the 80s drug wave was unwalkable, even as a grown ass man, after d...

Re: GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: GUILTY OR NOT?

Alonso I look at it like this. Tavis Smiley made a great point when he said “you can stand your ground unless you are a black man”. You see when Zimmerman perused TRayvon even after 911 told him not too TRayvon initially ran. Trayvon then turned to confront Zimmerman. At that point was Trayvon not ...

Re: Reducing Gun Violence in Brooklyn

SOS does good work. Used to live in Crown Heights and there were a few shootings while I was there. Especially on Nostrand. Things have quieted down but I will attribute that to police presence more so than SOS. 6% drop is good but not something that is conclusive enough to hang your hat on.
