    Meanwhile, over on President and Schenectady, this guy have a close call:

    Thankfully, muggings in which a gun is used do not usually result in gunfire.

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

    In a email that the 77th pct sent out today, the DA has announced a successful indictment.

    The charges seem appropriate. I suspect I would have voted to indict him if I sat on his Grand Jury...

  • whynot_31, where do you find the police information you have posted above?
  • edited October 2014
    If you email Tania Salters, she will send you the 77th pct newsletter and notifications of large incidents (such as shootings in which the person is killed or in serious condition). 

    Community Affairs, 77th Precinct, 127 Utica Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11213 

    She usually sends them out within a week of the incident.

    The cryptic posts are from scanner sites, like these:

    They usually post crimes in which a person was shot within 30 min of the incident.  
  • did anyone else happen to witness the violent incident on franklin and st. johns around 5:15pm this evening? i was walking from the subway back home to see two police officers bolting down the street after a group of young men. once one suspect was apprehended and getting cuffs affixed, a second police officer punched him in face and knocked him down. really horrible to witness. half of the people crowded on the street were paralyzed, and the other half were shouting wildly. i am curious for what reason these suspects were being chased; probably as i am trying to make sense of the violence i witnessed once they were apprehended. anyone out there know any info? 
  • From 24 shootings in 2010 to 3 in 2017. I don't credit SOS Crown Heights with all of that decrease, but will state the latter sounds like a far nicer place for children and adults to live. Draft-3-1
  • This is so upsetting. There were way more in western crown heights and SOS won't seem to move into the community as it's not in their catchment area...They obviously do great work and need to expand their efforts!
