13 yo kid shot in the face at noon - broad daylight and a busy space. I taught this kid in second grade -- he was a really good, sweet kid. Breaks my heart, glad he is stable at Kings county.
The SOS program in crown heights is often discussed here. Does East Flatbush/Flatbush have something similar? Something working? Councilman Eugene is not very useful in the Flatbush neighborhood - but I really like Jumaane Williams in east Flatbush. This was his constituent who was shot, but he was over in Eugene's neighborhood when the shooting occurred. I wish they worked together to get things done. Anyone know of programs in the neighborhood making a difference?
