As forwarded by an anonymous tipster. Is it just me or is “blasting” a mass email about a “good arrest” kind of confirming the recent trend of (and this is being kind) “bad arrests” we have learned about lately? So let me get this straight.
Suspected of selling loose cigarettes while being a black male? That merited a chokehold.
Skip a subway fare while being a black male? That’s a serious asskicking.
But being a colossal dumbass (of unspecified race it would seem*) wandering around the tower of the Brooklyn Bridge taking photos with your iPhone? Well, that seems to merit a “good” arrest.
You can’t make this shit up, folks…
*It turns out that not only is this miscreant white, but he was also a tourist. This explains a few things…

This one never gets old. What’s more, Alex Low of the New Kings Democrats not only noticed— but made sure that all attendees present at this evening’s proceedings minded their “P’s” and “Q’s”…
This is the first installment of this evening’s debate. More to come. Given my site is acting up again (Yeah, I know) I’ll continue adding footage as I can. Otherwise, I’d advise everyone to check my YouTube page. There you will find it all!
Josef, one of the Greenpoint community’s more colorful characters, talks up Councilman Levin after said proceedings.

Earlier today I noted the meeting regarding crime scheduled for this evening has been cancelled —and a public forum regarding crime has been organized by our city Councilman, Steve Levin, is scheduled for August 27th. Well, it has been brought to my attention the previous evening, August 26th, there will be a sunset “meet and greet” at 475 Kent Avenue, replete with cocktails, on the rooftop!
A few thoughts/observations:
- This email blast (which was in turn forwarded to yours truly) was sent to someone who is not a resident of 475 Kent Avenue.
- However he/she has attended Loft Law workshops publicized by NAG (Neighbors Allied For Good Growth).
- NAG is a recipient of city funding for activities like Williamsburg Walks.
- The tenant organizer for NAG also happens to be a member of Community Board 1— and she was appointed by Councilman Levin.
- The NYC Loft Tenant Group is a city-wide group. Are they conducting “meet and greets” for all city councilmembers up for reelection this year— or only Steve Levin?
