There is garbage everywhere now. This is one of the "little" things
that Rudy gifted us and DiBlasio has taken away. When he got elected,
that WEEK the streets were clean everywhere. It was like a f'ing
miracle. You would swear it wouldn't be possible. I remember seeing
America Gangster and they accurately portrayed what NYC was like at that
time. There was a carpet of litter all over Central Park, all over the
streets, everywhere. It was disgusting. And we have all but gone back
to that bleak depressing condition. People, espeically Black Male
youths, are back to throwing their fried chicken onto the subway tracks.
And when you say something to them, you end up chest to chest, nose to
nose with a half dozen punks.
I'm going to get shot one day.

They are everywhere and they destroyed Nostrand Avenue with that bus
lane. But they make a huge amount of money on it ticketing old ladies
who try to not pay the fair on the select bus service.

The station at Kings Highway is the same. We have homeless people now
shitting on the subway stairs and platform EVERYDAY.
And there is a hug homeless camp under the patio on the Boardwalk on
Coney Island. And they shit all over that and the Mayor and the cops do

About 2 months ago I had to get between these black kids and these
Jewish girls at about 2:30 in the morning. They were doing that stick
where they were slowly ramping up on them, and the girls were too
ignorant to disengage them. After about ten minutes, they circled
around them, two Bais Yakov girls about 16, and where threatening to
touch them, while "sweet talking them". The girls were trapped and
caught off guard. Nobody on the subway car would do anything.
Everyone was just staring at them. Fortunately, Kings Highways station
rolled in and I physically pushed through their circle, reached for the
girls and told them to get off the train with me. One kid snarled at
me, "Why ya touching me, when I pushed him out of the way of the door.
I looked right at him and told him to watch his mouth and stay on the
train if you know whats good for you. The girls were SO relieved. They
were shaking. I don't think they even knew how dangerous the situation
was. They were lucky....very lucky.
But this is all good for race relations.
Remember, Black Lives Matter ... but not Officer LIU, who was in my
pharmacy every day before he was shot down in Bed-Sty on Marcy Avenue.
That was a truly great guy. He was a real hero. When I called the
cops, he was always the point man. Even though he would take roudies
out of the pharmacy, he always maintained a very respectful disposition.
I was amazed at his interpersonal skill.
