NYPD: Crime up 30 percent in housing projects (New York City)
MyFoxNY ^ | 4-6-14 | LISA EVERS

Posted on 04/07/2014 3:59:29 PM PDT by dynachrome

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 Harlem’s 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 isn’t 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.

Project is named:

“Abraham Lincoln House”

Enslaving them instead of freeing them.

they need programs

The FSA is pretty much trained to demand government "programs" on cue.

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.

You can't trademark "gibsmedat." It's already in the Public Domain.

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?

Stop-and-frisk worked, so let’s replace it with The Knockout Game.

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.

Maybe it's just me. I grew up around poor white Yankee trash, outside a major city. It was very hard to escape that environment.
I don't imagine it is any easier today for poor black trash to escape their environment.

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.

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.

difference is that there are way too many that don't even try to get out......

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.....

LOL!
You said that as if you really knew what you were talking about!

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.
