The problem: The arrest of Frank James, the suspect in a mass shooting on a train in Brooklyn that left 29 injured.
Congratulations to the NYPD for their excellent police work in arresting the suspect in the Brooklyn shooting (“Grinning Terrorist” April 14).
Unfortunately, their work was made more difficult because the cameras on the subway platform weren’t working. It has been reported that not one but all of the cameras in the vicinity of the filming location are not working properly. Why is that? Who is responsible for that?
It’s a wake up call. Now it’s time to make sure that all of the camera equipment that New York City has installed for a specific purpose is operational.
I don’t understand how the governor and the mayor can praise and praise law enforcement for catching a terrorist who turned himself in.
Yes, the cops did their job as far as they could. The real crime is the governor and the legislatures that allow such terrorists.
Change the laws back. Take the handcuffs off the police and put them on the criminals. Catch and Release is great for fishing but not for public safety. God help New York.
For months, people have complained about crime and quality of life issues in the New York City subway system.
It’s one of the main reasons people hesitate to return to the office: they don’t feel safe.
On Tuesday in Brooklyn, in the middle of the morning rush hour, an idiot decided to open fire on people on the subway.
This is an act of terrorism, and insane or not, this guy should be thrown in jail and we should lose the key.
To make matters worse, it was discovered that the surveillance cameras on the subway platform where the shooting took place were not working.
With crime on the subways, how can these cameras not work? Someone needs to be held accountable for that.
The cameras on the New York subway don’t work. What a shock. Neither the sound system nor the air conditioning or anything else.
Crime is out of control and it smells like urine. There are no clean toilets in the subway either. Such a shame.
Tokyo subways are clean and safe with plenty of bathrooms. New York is miserable.
It is time for a change. We are a broken city and the blame lies squarely with the Democrats.
Eight years of Mayor Bill de Blasio, a few years of the Defund the Police movement and other progressive policies, and ongoing corruption in Albany have left our state and once great city in tatters. They can’t even get our subway cameras to work, let alone protect us.
We are witnessing the results of one-party rule and the total inability of politicians who care more about staying in office than doing what is right for their constituents.
We’ll continue to hear a lot of noise from Mayor Adams and Gov. Hochul, but it’s becoming pretty clear that they are beholden to a party that lacks the will and ability to do what’s right for the people of New York.
Whether it’s terror on a train in Brooklyn, rampant corruption in the lieutenant governor’s office, or a hundred other incidents, there are constant reminders that New York City and the state are indeed on the brink of doom because of the politics and failures of mad left-wing Democrats.
The formula is simple: if you’re content with rampant crime, runaway inflation, uncontrolled illegal immigration, and countless other mishaps, then by all means keep voting the far-left Democrats.
On the other hand, if one is disgusted that criminals go unpunished, accompanied by record high living costs and the degradation and destruction of so many aspects of daily life, then it is time to vote for change.
