People like acting fair and non stereotypical until they are the victim of a crime and the police come knocking.

Some people on this board sound like the type of people that would let anyone into a building without asking any questions or not report strangers in the hallway out of fear that they might appear “racist” or prejudice. Just like the neighbor at San Bernardino, California who did not alert authorities of their suspicions. Better to use common sense and trust your instincts than to be sorry later. Most input from the community involving a crime is helpful to authorities.

Well I am Latina also, did not grow up in low income have friends that did grow up in low income and were never thugs.. So the generalizations are just that.. Generalizations. I take offense because the assumptions are based in this idea that if you have money you somehow have manners and/or ethics. I know plenty of affluent people that are disgusting low lives as human beings. Having money does not make you moral. Having a good and decent upbringing with values does, and money can’t by that!!

The real issue is why the building does not monitor the security cams in real time. Also, I assume that if the suspects knew that they were being taped they probably would of not stolen anything. Are there not signs that clearly state that video taping in progress to deter crime? Or do these warning signs scare tenants? I can only conclude that the suspects are not familiar with the newer developments in the area or just plain “stupid.” I know its just a bike that was stolen but garage break-ins here and there can ultimately lead to apartment break ins and robberies.

At the L Haus, the doorman was monitoring the camera and resulted in confronting the kids. They ran out of the building shortly after without any stolen items.

Three teens or young adults stealing a bike that they will most likely sell. Dumb, especially not considering surveillance video. I am Latina, grew up in low income housing and not offended by any statement. You could always buy stolen goods if you knew the right person or through word of mouth. Nowadays, you have technology to sell. Yes, this can happen in any neighborhood but based on my experiences, the photo and knowing the area..Check the low income housing first! lol

PS- you’re right, it is dumb to not know that a building doesn’t have a video camera. Considering you grew up in low income and claim that these kids must be too, don’t you think they would know a little bit more about the hustle??!! Just saying!

Ok so

It’s racist and offensive to think a low income housing dweller could have been responsible for this “hustle” but it’s acceptable to that they should know more about the “hustle” because they are from low income housing. Got it.

LOL

My advice: ignore the flamethrowers, it just makes them nuts, or maybe more nuts. “Racism” is a mud-slinging tactic but i like how you made your point.

Yes.

The same stereotypical logic she used to include them is the same logic you are trying to use to exclude. “If they are from low income housing, they would know more about the hustle”. Better answer your phone, it’s the kettle calling.

I get what you are saying.. But the fact is that NYC raised kids have more street smarts.. I am including myself in this as I am born and raised in Queens.. Just cause you know the hustle does not mean you are in it or a part of it.

Actually Jackson Heights. I am pretty sure though that Malba and Bayside are more “hood” than the mid west town you came from. Lol

Joe at the Berkley

@anonymous It must have been a scene out of New Jack City for you growing up in the Towers or Chateau or Elm Court. Yeah, you sure sound like you came up the hard way. We wiped up the street with you guys in my day when you dared to venture into Astoria. And I consider my upbringing privileged when I grew up in Astoria just like my father did and my son does now. The hood hahaha

You do know

That Michigan is considered part of the Midwest right? I bet you could find some boys and girls growing up on the streets of Detroit who know a thing or two about the hustle. You say “Midwest” with a derogatory undertone. You reject the blanket stereotypes of kids raised in NYC but “lol” when you bring out your own quilt? Guess you didn’t get the message from the kettle.

hey

“Check the low income housing first!” She kinda left the investigation open to other places.

Surveillance camera’s are rare or always broken in the projects. Even when they get repaired someone usually breaks them the next day. The same goes for hallway lights. So most people behave like they are not even there and are oblivious to any type of security.

Show me a White, Black, Asian or Hispanic kid in NYC that doesn’t dress like these “hood rats” and I’ll say you must be from the mid-west. These kids clearly need some direction in life or prison time because what they are doing is disgusting but I take offense to all of these comments claiming that these kids “must be from the projects and raised in the ghetto”. Pretty much any person on this post with kids being raised in NYC should be offended for these judgmental nasty comments.

If I were a detective, I’d focus on the male suspect with the blk/green headphones. Looks like a pair of higher end headphones and if so, he is likely going to have them displayed making him an easier target. Headphones are almost like cell phones, one of the few everyday items you don’t leave home without. I’m sure an audiophile or electronics store employee would be able to identify the brand of headphones.

Go get ’em!!!

Hmm

All these comments look like there are from the same 2 people despite the different handles. The robbers actually look pretty well dressed. The one guy has fur trim and big headphones! How do you know they are not overly entitled little brats who think they are above the law? You know. Affluenza or whatever? Just saying, if you are going to judge at least use the evidence you’re given.

“Overly entitled little brats” are usually driving around, popping pills or smoking weed. They are not breaking garage doors and stealing bikes that they can get 50-100 bucks for. Also, entitled youth know about security cameras! The suspects in this case look Hispanic and that is how the most of the youth dresses like at low income housing hoods. I know when my bike was stolen I was put in an unmarked police car and taken to the projects! And guess what..I spotted my bike, got my bike back and the teen was summoned. Do not let political correctness effect common sense and logic.

hi

Clearly you are also an “overly entitled brat” since you can make such a sweeping generalization about their behavior? Rich kids also steal and destroy property, with less of a financial intention, and more just “because they can.”

And what does driving have to do with riding in an elevator, to my knowledge even the richest of rich still have to slump to this daunting task of vertical transportation.

Don’t let hate and class-ism (racism? not sure what disgusting ism you are exhibiting due to your one experience with a stolen bike) AFFECT your logic, and sense of common decency.

@Frank You seem like a typical whiny Republican who lacks a vocabulary. Your constant use of the word liberal is just more evidence of your limited capacity to think and reason. Yeah you’re not a racist. Hahaha You’re nothing but a low performing low IQ low wage blowhard. An imbecile and a Republican racist. Only you’re too much of a coward to admit you’re a racist. “Republican the party of stupid”, quote Bobby Jindal Republican Governor of Louisiana.

— Frank There is a liberal boogeyman around every corner. Poor Frank is the real victim. Wah wah wah. The new stupid face of the Fox led Republican Party.,A band of cry baby idiots..

Frank

Joe, you speak with such dazzling authority about me, yet you have no actual information about me. I can assure you that you are wrong on all counts. But since when have facts mattered to you when you can inhale the fragrant miasma of your putrescent “mind”. In simpler language, you are a typical arrogant liberal jerk. Now please piss off or go cash a welfare check.

bn

I could be wrong but i think someone would of recognized the suspects already if they were from the “luxury” apartments/condos or homes in the immediate area. LIC is surrounded by what many would consider “low income hoods.” .

Oh yes! I am sure when the police saw this photo they immediately went knocking to the penthouses in the area looking for the suspects. And the surveillance video of the teens in Brooklyn (in the bodega) that may of been involved in a gang rape that also the cops I am sure thought that the suspects looked like they are most likely rich teens so lets head to the expensive areas of Brooklyn first looking for them.

All of you are clearly the same people who want to ban all muslims from the US right? Believe that all hispanics or black people are welfare thugs, all middle eastern people are terrorists, and all white people are ok? (or maybe all white men are deranged, gun wielding mass shooters?)

Perhaps if we all thought a little better of one another, the country might not be in such shambles.

And I wouldnt count on anyone to recognize all the people that live in the luxury high rises, as there are tons of them, and they tend to rotate out – renters and all.

Why not just ask the cops to do their jobs, and ask the entire neighborhood (and surrounding communities) to see if they recognize the suspects? When their mothers turn them in, you might be surprised to learn of their address, or you might not.

in my opinion, everyone (regardless of class, color, religion, housing, etc) is a suspect these days. Why pigeonhole yourselves to the projects while the guy in the housing slightly (or infinitely) better may be the one?

@anonymous Now we see why you remain anonymous you’re a welfare mama. Get a job loser and stop mooching off the system. Have some pride then your kids will get some pride instead of breaking into working peoples homes while they’re at work funding the very system that houses educats and feeds them. Talkabout biting the hand that feeds you. Once it’s been determined people are doing nothing but producing generation after generation of criminals you should be deemed “genetic defects” and sterilized. Anonymous do us all a favor and get sterilized.

‘He didn’t deserve to die’: Borough President Richards leads emotional candlelight vigil for Tyre Nichols

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards held a candlelight vigil for Tyre Nichols outside Queens Borough Hall Monday, Jan. 30 after Nichols’ death at the hands of police officers in Memphis, Tenn., made national headlines for the brutality in which the officers beat him.

Almost immediately after news broke about Nichols’ death, the Memphis police officers who beat him to death were fired and charged with murder.

Long Island City teen sentenced in fatal shooting of ‘beloved’ school teacher at Queensbridge Houses in 2020: DA

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder. The teacher, George Rosa, 53, was shot in his abdomen by a stray bullet fired by Ford, who was just 17 years old at the time of the shooting but was sentenced as an adult given the severity of the crime, according to Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.
