Skip to comments.Park ravaged by drugs, hookers and muggings after infamous police killing (New York City)

Gangbangers peddle drugs in plain sight, hustlers resell cheap booze on the street corner 50 cents will get you a capful and prostitutes lead johns to the boarded-up husk of what used to be a Taco Bell.
This is Tompkinsville Park on Staten Islands North Shore in 2018 and, to area residents and merchants caught in its heroin- and K2-infested vortex, this is a battlefield.
Every day you see muggings, prostitutes, people smoking crack and shooting up heroin, said Xhafer Gjeshbitraj, 52, who owns a building across the street from the tiny, triangular park bounded by Bay Street and Victory Boulevard.
Its a war zone, in the truest sense of the word.
In the nearly four years since Eric Garner was killed in a struggle with an NYPD officer across the street from the park, locals claim the area has gone to the wolves, with cops hesitant to lay down the law at the risk of igniting another firestorm.
Guys are not going to risk their jobs anymore, said one high-ranking law enforcement source familiar with the precinct. Well just let you have that area.

Last one out of American cities won't need to bother turning out the lights.
They voted for it...................
That's the problem right there.
No NYPD is going to put their ass on the line for a Xhafer Gjeshbitraj.
His last name means “birthday” in German.
Human beings are capable of unbelievable depravity. Our culture in America today is not a surprise to those who study the Genesis account of original sin and its aftermath culminating in the Great Flood. We truly do live in a lost and dying world when we are apart from God.
“Human beings are capable of unbelievable depravity. Our culture in America today is not a surprise to those who study the Genesis account of original sin ...”
Or the second half of Romans 1.
Even with the crime infested ghetto of Staten Island, New York City has one of the lowest crime rates of all major American cities.
But the mayor of NYC, Comrade DeDumblASSio, had more important things to do today than address this situation. He felt that a taxpayer-funded photo-op outside an El Paso child shelter required his personal attention more than this disgraceful situation.
On a positive note, maybe they’ll all kill each other and problem solved. Being sarcastic of course. Very sarcastic! But there doesn’t seem to be an end to it. And Democrats keep lying to them and feeding their anger.
His name is Albanian.
Too bad he is stuck there without help. He appears to be one of the good guys.
If you do not enforce the laws on the books you will have a zero crime rate
However, when the citizens continue to vote for these same leader types, repeatedly, over decades, well, I guess those voters earned it. Either move (and for God's sake change how you vote) or shut up and swim in your cesspool.
“If you do not enforce the laws on the books you will have a zero crime rate”
The laws are enforced on Staten Island, but the residents are out of control. Thankfully, Staten Islanders have the option to move to Brooklyn, Harlem or the Bronx where they are safer.
Being known as the best part of an ultra-progressive city is pretty thin gruel. That’s like saying it’s the best cellblock in Pelican Bay.
You are so right.
“I’ve heard Freepers say that Staten Island is the good part of New York City.”
New York City has a Murder Rate of 3.4.
There is the brazillian solution. It would have to be administered by citizens rather than police.
Blasio is like Obama... change the statistics and there is no problem. I guarantee he is cooking the crime statistics.
