Some of the mayoral candidates, including the current mayor spent a night in the Lincoln housing projects, vowing to make conditions better for the residents
It's a fine line between life and death at Harlems Lincoln Houses even on a sunny Sunday, the teens hang out and talk with their friends. But instead of dreaming about the future, 17 year old K'shonna Johnson says they worry about staying alive.
Just to see people I know passed away....I hear a lot of gun shots, violence due to drugs" the teen told us.
The NYPD says that that crime in public housing developments over the last 5 years is up by 30%. That's a rate 10 times higher than the rest of the city. But that stunning number may not tell the whole story.
Reports of domestic violence assaults have risen due to awareness campaigns.
Plus the nearly half a million public housing residents are in more densely populated areas according to the NYPD.
Residents say it is all about the living conditions and economics that drive people to crime and violence.
I guess society isnt giving enough jobs here for the youth they have, they need programs, people have to survive, and their back is against the wall one resident said.

You ain't giving them enuff jobs!
Project is named:
“Abraham Lincoln House”
Enslaving them instead of freeing them.
Crowding ferals together just makes more ferals.
The FSA is pretty much trained to demand government "programs" on cue.
Stop and frisk repercussion, enjoy residents enjoy
Why not be brave. Ooops, I mean not politically correct. Call it a War Zone. Maybe even a name might be appropriate. Something like Operation Enduring Victimhood in the hood. Yeh....that has a good ring to it. Operation OEV for short.
Maybe they need “pogroms”
“Residents say it is all about the living conditions and economics that drive people to crime and violence. “
That is so bad. I can’t wait until people ventilate their cheeks like that so we can see their teeth and gums.
I guess tattoo removal isn’t really going to help him.
Certainly none of these fine “visitors” that spent the night had any guns, did they?
LOL. I hadn’t seen that prime candidate for a job before.
Stop-and-frisk worked, so let’s replace it with The Knockout Game.
Just think. Some girl is going to make her parents very proud when she brings this guy home.
You’re an old FRiend and I hated to be the one to break the news....
If there were a way, I’d get U some mo betta gibsmedat!
No wurries all - guess he’s working at Starbucks in Seattle.
At least they don’t have salt, those nasty trans-fats, and 32oz sodas to add to the chaos/s
NY’ers get what they voted for. Now NYC can devolve back into the 70’s hellhole that it came from. At their current rate, NYC should make Detroit look good in about 10 years, and chicago in about 5.
There is a term....”crabs in a bucket”.
I didn't understand what that meant when I was trying to get out of the bucket myself. I didn't live near a coast, and still think eating crabs in the shell is kind of gross.
I do thank God I now live in the South.
It's generally widely understood that trash comes in all colors, and the bigger the bucket, the harder it is to crawl out of it.
Miss Me Yet?
It isn't the lack of jobs or the need of government "programs". What is on graphic display here is a society which is living out the results of the personal sins of the inhabitants (...and it is always "somebody else's fault"...).
Until these people get their moral lives and personal attitudes straight they will always be hopeless cripples dependent on others (or crime) and the largess of the state (i.e. the taxpayers) to survive. They are slaves to their own lusts and the lusts of others who rule, exploit, and control them. And those "others" are not the exploited taxpayers or the Koch brothers.
Help is on the way. The master redistribution Comrade Mayor will make it all better....
and not trying means not doing what needs to be done to get out: stay in school, learn the English language, and get a job.....
The vast majority of mankind is caught between the seemingly never ending battles between a small minority of alpha wolves and alpha sheepdogs.
The wolves are winning. Because of the few people who can be either, even fewer want to be sheepdogs.
