No matter what’s going on, there is still going to be people on the street looking to hurt, steal from, assault or either kill somebody for some stupid electronic. Check out the suspects. Just another day in NY.


They’d rather have half of the law-abiding population of the city die than legalize guns in NYC. And those who use them now don’t care about the law )
