      Except send them to the range to sharpen their shooing skills.

    I actually live a few blocks from there, waterman’s assumption is a fair one.

  • nycsewer

    NYPD needs to stop using Stop and Frisk so we can have more of these incident to kill these dirty bags

    What is the difference between street gangs and al Qaida? We have effective laws against terrorist organizations and their members. Let us use them them.

      But that’ll cost the city/state/feds too much money. Instead, let’s increase the number of cops preying on innocent citizens to give you a ticket whenever you break one of their stupid laws.

    Don’t make assumptions waterman. From the graffiti in that area, there appears to be a turf war between MS 13, Latin Kings, and 18th street gangs.
