If he was white he'd be molesting children.

BUT he is NOT white, he is black and this seems to be a common threat. Tom from Queens, what is even your point, all you did was digress from the fact of the matter here of the article.

Tom from Queens loves to play the shell game, look over here, but don't focus on the issue at hand. Must be a politicians lackey.

Face it, black men make up a large portion of crimes committed, way more than any other group of people in NYC and the majority of victims of crimes are black. These are facts and statistics, that anyone can look up. So yes, it is a black thing. Well, more of an African-American thing.

@Smitty and James: Two whining knuckleheads; Lol. It's only a matter of time before the table turns and you'll both be the bottom feeders of society. Back to Europe you go! Lol.

You Wack:

One becomes a bottom feeder from NOT taking personal responsibility for ones own actions or behaviors and THEN blaming everything else and everybody else instead of their own self. And just exactly is the tide going to turn knucklehead, please enlighten me. I mean how long has this nonsense been going on in areas like Jamaica, like decade after decade after decade. Crawl back in your hole.

Jay Thomas from Queens says:
Ha, Jamaica is home of the most bottom feeders and takers. Ironic to hear the comment from YouWack. That damn community has been a ghetto mess since the 60's. So what is the excuse. Plenty of time for you folks to get your S**T together, but alas, YOU DON'T.
