    People who left racist comments like NAVIN and BiILLYare very ignorant because when theres poverty in any community there will be an outcry of violence no matter what race. In the 50’s when John Gotti ran the streets of east new york which had no Afro Americans at the time there was a masses of violence so it has nothing to do with color but class status. But im glad to see how racist people are in 2011 because i grew up in East new york and i graduated college and im in grad school now so im a product of the many different types of Afro Americans that reside in the East New York community NAVIN and BILLY.

    too many guns in too many hands. young “toughs” with guns – you are NOT “ALL THAT.” and your punk friends who beat up elderly people are NOT “ALL THAT” either. toughs with a gun caused an 18 month old girl to lose an eye, be afraid you punks, the clock is ticking down on your time we’re mad as hell, and we won’t be taking your act much longer. keep this up much longer, and we’ll see your mothers crying on tv. my thoughts and prayers to the officer and her family – from an extended member of the long blue line
