Although I am totally certain Frank Jump has already covered this (because he has a Jedi master sense of such things), I am linking to his wonderful blog anyway. I want to give a shout-out of gratitude to the fellow working on this site who humored my shutter-bugging. He totally understood how ironic this was given Equal Pay Day came to pass just a week ago…

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Of Blood & Cat Litter On Green Street

A fellow I will call “M” writes (to our City Councilman and a 94th Precinct Community Affairs Officer as well as yours truly) writes:

Hi Scott (I think he means Steve— Ed Note),

I’m a fellow neighbor in Greenpoint and saw the aftermath of a disturbing incident on Franklin at Green St. (in front of T.B.D.) yesterday morning around 7:00am. A young male was face down in a pool of blood and the 3 people on the scene were standing over the body as if there was no hope for the man. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it and haven’t been able to find out if the victim is okay. I’m writing to see if you have any insight to the incident as it happened blocks from my home. Appreciate any info you can share.

All the best…

This afternoon I took a stroll to the corner of Green Street and Franklin Street. Sure enough, there was blood.

And a lot of cat litter.

Over the years (and NYS will be eight years old soon— I have ceased to keep track anymore) I have received a number of inquiries of the variety “M” has tendered. All are troubling. However, “M” did the right thing: he/she not only took up the matter withthe 94th Precinct’s Community Affairs Office (concerns such as this is why they’re there!) but also our City Councilman*. This is how you do it, north Broklynites!

To be continued…?
