    These animals! They honestly are a step above monkeys. They should be behind a fence a few blocks away at the Bronx zoo. They aren’t black people, they are black trash. Learn how to live honestly in society. Unfortunately the fathers of these creatures are like stray cats, and make babies and leave. We need to steralize by putting meds in the “quarter water”.

    Just more of the same commonplace barbarism. Sad.

    Another day, another shooting ! Everyday there are innocent people being shot with Illegal guns ! With tens of thousands of Illegal guns on the streets of New York , why can’t someone stop the flow of all of these weapons ? Someone knows where all of these Illegal guns are coming from ! It’s time to make it easy for law abiding citizens to purchase and carry a gun in New York. Good, honest people don’t have a chance !
