  • Wednesday's response to Monday's shooting. The crowd filled in some after this pic, and Councilman Cornegy made an appearance. Don't know what he will or can do about gun violence in the area, but glad to know at least his attention is on it.

  • Rachel's piece states:

    " In the three other incidents, two men and one woman were shot in the legs, officers said. One of these victims was shot at a barbecue on St. Johns Place between Washington and Classon avenues, police said."

    None of these incidences are mentioned above, but all seem to have occurred on approximately June 16th.

    This means the twitter site I follow seems to only report instances in which a police emergency service unit (ESU)
  • The politicians and NYPD are going to have an Emergency Meeting on June 30th:

    Anyone want to take bets on whether we will be getting an Impact Zone, or something that isn't called an Impact Zone but quacks like one and looks like one?

  • The NYPD mobile command center arrives.

    Nostrand and EPimage
  • Good. I hope it helps with curbing some of the remaining criminal activity on Nostrand.
  • Is the Mobile Command center going to be around for a while? 
  • I think that's up to the NYPD.

    Meanwhile, the event that was scheduled for June 20th (see above) is now to take place on June 30th.

    Thankfully, the event counts mostly on attendance generated from passing out flyers to select audiences ....and NOT my posts on Brooklynian.

    Until marijuana is legalized, it seems to be correlated with guns and violence:

    An armed individual goes on a crime spree, between Kingston and Utica: 


  • We seem to have had a relatively quiet weekend in the 77th Pct.     

    Time to link a relatively recent report that displays violence stats for the city as a whole:

  • edited August 2014
    On Saturday night, this man threw a handgun on the ground while police watched:

    Meanwhile, just south of EP in the 71st Pct, Antoine Markens is believed to have shot his roommate:


  • Last night around 9 PM, a male seems to have been shot on Sterling, near Rochester Ave. 1506 Sterling Place.

    He was reportedly alive when the ambulance arrived, and taken to the hospital.
  • For those who want to know just how much more violent the eastern part of the 77th pct is relative to other parts of the city: http://m.citylimits.org/citylimits/db_316987/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=wphPlcNq
