  • Charles F. Bolden, Jr.

    Post pictures of Charles F. Bolden, Jr. everywhere. He was appointed by Obama himself to be the new NASA Administrator. Thse kids should be looking up to Mr. Bolden, as a shining exemplar.

    Hey, I just found out that there are NO Guns on Mars. And–you’re gonna love this–NO RENT, no bills, no police, no drugs, no bacteria, no viruses, no mold, no fungus, etc.

    This is fast becoming the U.S. of Somalia. People, let’s eat more GREEN vegetables like salads, and more FISH instead of Red Meat and overprocessed junk, or Fast Food. Maybe that’s the solution.

    I stand by my colleagues in honoring my friend Eddie Ivey. I remember him as a young man eager to make his way in our profession so he can do what we all do: put food on the table for his family. Not too many people want to grow up to become a bus driver, but he took this job and made it something enjoyable. Those green eyes of his just danced whenever he saw someone he considered a friend. I had the privilege of responding to a situation last year in which Eddie was involved. Wasn’t his issue. Still I could easily determine he was doing the right thing. He was a good guy, and there are public posts out there condemning the fact that he was out on a saturday night, even with a family. Come on, we all need to unwind. Did he deserve to die because of it? Does the fact that he is a black bus operator instead of a white cop make it any less of a tragedy or him less of a human being? If it was a white cop, I guaran-effing-tee no one would be making these statement. The world is a lesser place without Eddie Ivey in the world, but whatever negative poster is out there is just too blind to see that. Please let us bury our friend, and let his family be in peace while we take care of our own, because God knows you won’t. Have any further comments? Come find me: big guy in a black official car with a uniform that on this moment he is proud to wear. My name is Andy Richter and I, like my brothers and sisters, AM NYC Transit. Come get some.

The timing could not be any worse as we approach the ten year anniversary of the Death of Both Eddie Jr. and Narada’s Cousin Benjamin Keefe Clark who was one of the victims of 9/11, and was also one of my best friends, he made sure his entire staff was out of the building before running back in to double check or see if he could help, SO DONT YOU DARE TALK BAD OF THIS FAMILY , and if you have a problem with what i said you can come say it to my face , Bam Garcia Briarwood Queens!

  • Betty Guerrero

    I didn’t know Eddie, but he must have been a wonderful person, good Dad, son and friend. I am so sorry that his family is having to go through this terrible pain. It’s hard to understand why this has happened. We realize God has a master plan. Stay strong, he is watching over you, as now you have a guardian angel. RIP Eddie.

When god made him he made the best and any and everyone whom came in contact with him would say the same thing he lived his life to the fullest and was their for whom ever needed him. Eddie is truly a shining star me and my family cant understand why would someone would want to hurt or kill him he was a in ever aspect what a honorable man should strive to be in their lives. My brother will always be a part of me and my children lives and i promise to continue to live my life in a way that would make him proud, I miss you so much my beauitful jade eye brother. we all love you so much .

May You Rest In Peace Eddie and watch over your family, that you will be with them but not yet..Not yet… As much as it hurts and bothers us brothers and sisters we need to remain strong and focus…God Bless everyone..

  • Daphne

    @ eddie and narada..I’m sorry for your lose. Sadly at this time you need to focus more on grieving for a friend/family member. The devil loves company, as long as you feed into the stupidty of the commenters who know nothing of your friend than you’re doing what he wants you to do, to make him feel better about himself. Opinons/stupidity are like a$$holes, everyone has one and some need to be kicked in them. As a mother and grandmother, may he now rest in peace.

    • Eddie Agard

      Thank you, Daphne! However we just could not stand by and listen to this trash! Eddie is held in very high regard in his family, union, club and community ! Make no mistake about it, this is a HUGE loss! He managed to survive the tough streets of Brooklyn and become a very productive member of his community just to die unnecessarily in Wyandanch ,Long Island where the standard of living is “supposed” to be so much “better”!

  • Crushed

    listen ass hole it was a weekend event with family and friends someone took the life of a father, brother, friend and a son for no reason at all. Your comment was very ignorant Rest In Peace Eddie “La Mission” Ivey he was a positive person with a great spirit. He did not have to die like that person who killed him is a coward.

    • RestIn Peace

      I’m sorry sir. What kind of father is hanging out on a wyndanch street corner at 1 am. When you become a father there are certain things you don’t do anymore. You give them up. That is why you get the sht out of your system before you have kids, lay your oats, party, then have kids and settle down. Unless he was working he had no business partying at 1am

      • Justin Brannon

        Boy you sound just as ignorant as a 12 year old, and even 12 year olds know better than to say the nonsense you are saying!!!! Get your head out of your azz and think before you speak!!! That is a grown man that is allowed to do whatever he feels he wants and/or needs to do!!! Who the hell are you to dictate when he or ANYBODY else can be wherever, whenever they want???? You folks in Long Island are off the chain and you got balls to come on here and say something like that about ANYBODY!!! I don’t know the guy personally but for you to say something like that is very ignorant and god don’t like ugly!!! It will come back and haunt you god forbid the same thing happens to you. He was a bus operator, I am a bus operator, which makes him a union brother to me and a co-worker, even though we never worked together!!! May you rot in hell!!! R.I.P Brother Eddie!!! My prayers go out to the family during this time of mourning!!!!

      • Narada

        Go somewhere with you neg bull! My cousin was a good father that was not “hanging” on street corner! He was with family, and friends! If you have more to say please, feel free to find me! The name is Narada Watson!

      • Eddie Agard

        This is probably one of the most ignorant statements that I have heard in recent memory! Eddie L. Ivey was a hard working bus operator, a DEVOTED father, and a GOOD FRIEND! He died breaking up a fight! You friend, should watch what you say! If you don’t know the facts, KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT! Sounds like you are one of those people who post just to see your words! We are not going to let some clown like you disrespect someone we hold in high regard!

      • LOUIS

        He was a great father,husband and my friend also my co worker at new york city transit as a bus driver.he was out on your crime riddled island visiting family and getting “ready” to leave home when this coward long island resident shot and killed him.i believe that on a summer night a working man can take a motorcycle ride to visit family and friends cant he? How does that make him bad? He was one of the nicest people i have ever known and i am very upset you guys put out crazy statements and dont know any facts? Have a lucky life
