The police are looking for a man who smashed two security cameras inside a Long Island City subway station earlier this month.

The suspect, police said, was inside the 33rd Street-Rawson Street subway station on July 9 at around 3:35 p.m. when he began to urinate on the southbound 7 train platform.

He then damaged two MTA-owned security cameras worth around $800 before fleeing in an unknown direction, according to police.

Police on Wednesday released images of the man wanted for questioning. The suspect is descibed as having a dark-colored complexion and was last seen seen wearing blue-colored pants and a blue t-shirt with the words “get on board give blood’ emblazoned across its front.

The incident comes as police search for another man who is wanted for breaking nine security cameras at 7-train stations in Sunnyside over the past month. The assailant allegedly destroyed the cameras in three separate incidents with the total value of property damage in those incidents being at about $3,000.

Anyone with information in regard to these incidents is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at

Public restrooms would be nice, but in a lawless society that refuses to hold bad people accountable, they simply will not work. Look at what has happened to the bathrooms at Starbucks. They are often times run over by drug addicts and criminals or just so nasty because people only care for themselves.

Contemporary America is an odd place. We built a beautiful country in a short time (spare me the Colonialism lectures you woke morons). But now the vast majority of people do not care about law and order. Singapore is a wonderful example of a culture that rapidly developed and while many things contributed to this development, strict law and order were a big part of Singapore’s early success. Just imagine living in NYC if even 75% of criminals were locked up. Why do we feel the need to defend criminals? We all know the law. Don’t break the law and you can stay out of jail. We have created this terrible place for ourselves all because some of you are too stupid and stubborn to vote out of your party even when your party has lit your ship on fire and is sailing towards a waterfall.


“you are too stupid and stubborn to vote out of your party even when your party has lit your ship on fire” Like the tRump voters who stormed the Capital stupid or worse?

MRLIC 100% RIGHT. Thete is no punishment for any crime in NY with the NO Bail Law. I know there are not many public rest rooms but don’ t destroy the cameras. The other station had $3,000 of damage to cametas. Can’ t they be protected.


The headline should read: “Police Looking For Man Who Smashed Security Cameras After Urinating on 7 Train Platform so that they can waste time and resources arresting him and transporting him to jail so that he can be released with no strings attached the next day and hard working taxpayers can bear the financial cost of the destruction he caused”.
