Not surprised from Queens says:
It is ghettoville out there, so no surprise. The mayor keeps saying crime is down, but not in the ghetto SE Queens.

Think from Queens says:
People living in such communities, especially in SE Queens, need to finally stand up and loudly say ENOUGH. They need to begin major protests and call on not only their local elected officials but the Mayor and DEMAND to finally do something about all this nonsense in these communities and people living there need to stop passing it off and just another killing in the hood. I mean you family members are being killed at alarming rates in these areas.

Why from SE Queens says:
Can a person of color living in such areas explain why this constant shooting and killing in communities of color constantly happen. I mean this seems to happening for decades. Willing to hear someone explain this. In Jamaica and SE Queens, this happens almost on a weekly basis.
