Man it pays to be a criminal. Mets tickets free lunches. Art classes. What’s next just like the city of Richmond California . Yeah can I get a 1k a month for not robbing raping and killing. Pays to be a criminal. I did it all wrong.

Ok, is that related to this story somehow?

Maybe we should focus on the story instead of ranting about Richmond California

People still say "social justice warrior" unironically?!

Wow, that’s really dated. Still didn’t explain Richmond, lol.


When will the NYPD be permitted to actually do their job? There need to be real consequences for violent and criminal behavior regardless of age.


We had a chance to change that in this past da election.
Apparently, few law-and-order people bothered to vote.

Good kids. They lack access to fresh fruit and vegetables. They need after school programs, free iPhones, the latest sneakers, free food, and housing. They are victims of institutionalized racism. Don’t blame them, blame the founders of the nation

I had best friends who were black and hispanic when I was growing up in LIC and I’m not racist. Why don’t communities come out and fight to stop black on black crime or get these kids into some community center and show them there is more out there than the streets and hurting people? We also need to start listing the names of the kids (no matter what their age) and do away with out on bail or released on their own recognizance. Put them in jail!


It NEVER EVER is……..even if it on video…..its the new entitlement just like fare evasion…..
