Corona




























According to the NCMEC map there are over 851,870 men, women and children (as young as 8 and 10 in some states) required to register and the "crimes" range from urinating in public (indecent exposure), sexting, incest, mooning, exposure, false accusations by a soon-to-be ex-wife, angry girlfriend, or spiteful student, viewing abusive OR suggestive images of anyone 18 years old or younger, playing doctor, prostitution, solicitation, Romeo and Juliet consensual sexual dating relationships, rape, endangering the welfare of a child, the old bate-n-switch internet stings and many others. If you multiply the number on the registry by 2 or 3 family members you can clearly see there are well over 4 million wives, children, moms, aunts, girlfriends, grandmothers and other family members who experience the collateral damage of being murdered, harassed, threatened, children beaten, have signs placed in their yards, homes set on fire, vehicles damaged, asked to leave their churches and other organizations, children passed over for educational opportunities, have flyers distributed around their neighborhood, wives lose their jobs when someone learns they are married to a registrant....all these things occur when these people try to hold their family together and provide the three things that professionals state are needed for successful re-integration; a job, a place to live and a good support system. Residency restrictions, ranging from 500 ft to 2,500 ft are ludicrous just like being barred from homeless shelters. The Supreme Court’s Crucial Mistake About Sex Crime Statistics It is very important that you read the abstract below and then the full 12 page essay by Ira Mark and Tara Ellman. ABSTRACT This brief essay reveals that the sources relied upon by the Supreme Court in Smith v. Doe, a heavily cited constitutional decision on sex offender registries, in fact provide no support at all for the facts about sex offender re-offense rates that the Court treats as central to its constitutional conclusions. This misreading of the social science was abetted in part by the Solicitor General’s misrepresentations in the amicus brief it filed in this case. The false “facts” stated in the opinion have since been relied upon repeatedly by other courts in their own constitutional decisions, thus infecting an entire field of law as well as policy making by legislative bodies. Recent decisions by the Pennsylvania and California supreme courts establish principles that would support major judicial reforms of sex offender registries, if they were applied to the actual facts. This paper appeared in Constitutional Commentary Fall, 2015. http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/Papers.cfm?abstract_id=2616429 A study reviewing sex crimes as reported to police revealed that: b) 34.2% were family members; c) 58.7% were acquaintances; d) Only 7% of the perpetrators of child victims were strangers; e) 40% of sexual assaults take place in the victims own home; f) 20% take place in the home of a friend, neighbor or relative (Jill Levenson, PhD, Lynn University) The public needs to decide if they want to continue to focus on those who, for the most part, are one time offenders or if they see a greater need to fund programs like "Stop It Now" that teaches about grooming behaviors and other things in their Circles of Safety. Women Against Registry

This is a modern day equivalent to the witch hunts. We are going to be so ashamed in fifty years or less. As the registry list continues to explode, eventually we will all know or have a loved one on the list and then our prejudices will change.




111th Street was designed to accommodate the activity (and car culture) of the World's Fair half a century ago. It's about time the road is redesigned to better serve the needs of the community today. A redesign which safely accommodates motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists is needed. The neighborhood is clamoring for a change. What's the holdup, Mr. Mayor? And why is the CB4 rejecting this redesign for 81 Met home games a year when the majority of fans arrive via the 7 train, LIRR or the Grand Central Parkway, not 111th Street? Find a better excuse CB4 to kill a sensible roadway which the REAL COMMUNITY desires, or else give it thumbs up vote!


Tennis players need parking. To hell with the citizens of Queens, tennis gets what they want. Limousines need parking, and tennis took more park land. So citizens of Queens can't go to the museum when the folks from Manhattan are watching their tennis. Bah!!!!

So what's the best way to spend a few million dollars, add lots of painted stripes, cut down car lanes to guarantee bumper-to-bumper traffic 24 hours a day, or teach people how to cross the street? Don't you love the councilwoman- "It is absolutely impossible to cross 111th Street without having to look ahead of you, to the side, behind to figure out how to cross safely to a park” - duh? Personally, I think every citizen ought to look ahead, and to the sides, when they cross the street. I've been crossing 111th Street for 50 years and I am still alive. Look before you cross. How hard is that?











It is the bottom of the barrel people who live in that community and the totally useless elected officials like Peralta and others who for decades did NOTHING about this and let it just become so unmanageable. I think people are finally waking up to the destruction of Queens by low-class people, shady & inept elected officials (including the horrible Borough Presidents) and city agencies that have done little, especially DOB when it comes to the huge amount of illegal conversions and all the shady crap construction that has gone on.












In the age of technology, it is essential to do this, in order for the 7 train straphangers to get this during rush hours.











The article mentions "speeding", but the driver wasn't cited for speeding. What evidence is there for this allegation? It makes a big difference in trying to decide whether the driver was totally reckless or might just have been distracted and didn't notice the red light.

Why isn't she being charged with reckless driving and manslaughter? Why aren't drivers held accountable for their unsafe driving? It's getting ridiculous. Where is our D.A.? Isn't this why we elected a D.A.?



Don't they realize it's Kanye?! He gets to do what he wants.





























Yes, parents and women should educate themselves about proper use of tampons (and any other hygiene product they wish to use), but to say that many women have died and tampons are no longer popular is incorrect fearmongering. This program is going to help countless young women, from girls who are caught by surprise when their period starts to those whose families may not be able to always afford these relatively expensive, but necessary, items.





Looks like the 'program' founders either never heard of or don't care about the potentially fatal 'toxic shock syndrome' reported to be the result of using these things. To any parent out there with a daughter reading this: do your research on these tampons and toxic shock before allowing their use. Many women have died from using tampons which is why they're no longer popular nor used.




Two problems exist here: One, pedestrians must be responsible for their own actions when walking/crossing streets. Second, numerous drivers with brain disease such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, dementia, and assorted others which effects mobility, reasoning, thinking, and other abilities are still permitted to drive and at the expense of other drivers and pedestrians. When medically diagnosed, doctors have a responsibility to report their findings to the DMV if the patient drives and have their license evaluated. But then again, that 'doctor' thing is a matter for another article.
