Was this fiction, a parody or a recount of real events?

I can’t tell anymore.

Jesus christ, these brain dead consensus -seeking affirmation-dependant dolts are going to be the death of us.

Get these criminals off the streets, throw em in jail. Who gives a shit, this fuckin experiment has gone on long enough. Turns out your classroom theory doesn't hold up well in the real world, time to try something, anything, else.

God I’m so glad I live nowhere near these people. I feel like everyone but Moose deserves whatever he’ll is coming their way. They are either brainwashed or stupid. Either way they all deserve each other. The state of the left in America today is an unprecedented clusterfuck of compliance and entitlement. I pray no animals are hurt because of their stupidity. As far as they go, they get what they have designed. A world of smelling their own farts and feeling guilty for existing.

Crime is a “construct” for most of the sheltered woke types until it happens to them. This variety are the reason I quit policing. There’s no winning with them, as this article clearly demonstrates. These are the folks that would have a community forum about a gang shootout where they try to out-woke each other, but also stand there with a phone videoing someone bleed out on the pavement instead of helping them. They’d then happily tell you how traumatized they are (I know, I’m ranting). It’s disgusting, and Suzy did a good job showcasing their incompetency.

This is also why people who live in rural areas laugh or cringe when folks living in the big cities tell us how ignorant we all are and how we are doing it all wrong. It’s like the court jester giving advice on how to run the kingdom. I’ve been to NYC, and I’m inclined to agree with Hank Williams Jr.

Honestly I have hard time finding sympathy for people like Mr Nammack.

From reading this, I have a feeling that he was very active in voting for these policies and only now when the problem has hit close to home, there is call for action.

Giuliani managed to clean up NYC, make it safest big city in USA, after him, we had Bloomberg (who was Republican in Name only), Bill de Blasio (candidate for worst Mayor in NYC history) who have failed NYC on every step.

For years, situation in Big Apple was in downward spiral, people are regulary at attacked, pushed on rails in subway, and answer was always, Police is the problem, Criminals are victims.

Similar thing we see now with immigrants that are being send from Texas and Florida to "Sanctuary Cities", they loved immigrants until they showed up on their doorstep and were very happy to support them, so long they were some ones else problem.

long story short, you get what you voted for. In this case Mr Nammack saw first hand effect of policies he voted and supported. As always you get what you vote for. I honestly hope that Mr Nammack and his neighbors will vote differently in the future.

On the one hand, this is hilarious. It reads like the dialogue from a Neil Simon play. On the other hand, it is a sad commentary on the state of our once-great cities. The choice for the denizens of those cities is becoming clearer each day: virtue signal in your dream world and risk your safety and quality of life daily, or grow up, live in the real versus your imaginary world, and change how you vote.

An ax swinging guy who threatened diners and smashed up a McDonalds in NYC was paroled after 18 hrs. Lee Zeldin promises this will end when he is Gov. Can the democrats in NY bring themselves to vote for a Republican? Probably not.

Wow! First thought is, please Lord don't let these idiots breed. These people have no concept of reality and live in some warped dream scape that the rest of humanity has no desire to enter. Every one of them is exactly why we have so many problems in society. I also worry that these fools are actually real people and not satire.

The entire conversations from them all just verifies what anyone else knows. They should be wearing a sign that says, victimize me so my privilege's are paid for. Please rob, beat me and tell me how bad I am because I choose to live life. If they all feel this way they should seriously consider a move to Iran, Russia and China where the beloved leaders will make sure they do not live in a well to do neighborhood and they can all serve the greater good and be the same as the next miserable soul.

If they truly are left of beloved Lenin the killer of millions, my question is why would Suzy not ask why do you support that type of thought? How well is Iran, Russia and China working for the average so called Bohemian artist, musician, or intellectual? The US for well over 200 years has and still remains a beacon of hope for all of those folks who would gladly trade places with you. I strongly encourage all of these fools to take that offer and go bow down to the lord and masters on Communism and Dictatorship.

It absolutely hurts my head to listen to any of this drivel and absolutely insane BS from people who are unqualified to hold the shoes of soldiers and all of the first responders who allow them to be as "Stupid" as they are. One day the evil will come for you and I hope it is very painful for all of them, as that may be the only thing to make them realize they are a threat to humanity. As for me and my family, we will continue to appreciate and love the USA and all of the people who sacrifice to let us enjoy our lives.

Make vagrancy illegal again. Arrest everyone who is living on the street. Anyone who is mentally ill needs to be put into treatment programs that they are not legally able to leave. Anyone who is addicted to drugs needs to be put into treatment programs that they are not legally able to leave.

Anyone who commits crimes needs to be in prison for the full length of their sentence. Enforce the laws or change the laws.

We have become Godless people. The controls on our evil instincts are gone.

As Dostoyevsky said, When there is no God, everything is allowed.

The average IQ is 100, which isn't that bright. This story proves it. These people are just plain unapologetically stupid. I've grown so weary of the attitude that critical thinking is a "right wing talking point."

The other day a colleague -- yes -- a "professor" posted graffiti that read "abolish the courts" with the caption YEAH! Abolish the courts!"

Finally -- though I embrace free speech -- I hit the "unfollow" button. The fashion these days is to be the biggest Useful Idiot on the block.

Dear Suzy Weiss and Bari Weiss.

The issue in this story and in hundreds of similar stories around the country is "public space."

People assume that "public space" today is the same as it was in the 1950s, but it is not. There's been a big fall off in the concept of public space and public responsibility for civilized behavior in public space. This is a topic that should be investigated and thought about seriously.

Up in Halifax Nova Scotia, one of the most mild mannered and civilized places in North America, some vandal has just killed dozens of trees in the city's main public park by debarking them. This includes a 200-year old tree.

Comprehension of "public space" is nearly down to zero, especially among the very young, who don't understand it at all. This is a topic for coverage, dear Common Sense journalists.

When empathy is decoupled from reason, this is what you get. Everyone wants to burnish their liberal bona-fides (for social status/power or self perception) and nobody wants to actually deal with the problem.

Instead we get "redefinition" of the problem. And people willing to put up with absolutely appalling stuff because they want to label themselves something or see themselves a certain way. It could be happy horseshit but it gives them self-esteem and group identity. I'm a progressive, I'm not racist/sexist/whatever the label of the week is. And MOST OF ALL, I'm not a republican!

NYC will have to fall out of love with all these moronic, misguided attempts at public safety reform. Starting first with the phenomenally stupid bail reform. Which could have been a good thing of it were properly executed. Which it wasn't. Because of course it wasn't.

It's gonna take a while. There's an old saying that it's easier to fool somebody than convince them they've been fooled. I figure on at least half a generation.. 10 years at least. Though at the read this generation is having kids it may actually be 15;)

So yeah. Buckle up. And protect yourself. And hold onto the dear things in your life. And enjoy your time on this earth. Let the idiots buy into their happy horse shit. It gives them self esteem and group identity. And nobody is giving that up anytime soon.

And one last thing.

May God bless Moose. May he have cuddles and walkies and limitless treats where he is now. RIP

Brilliant reporting and a terrifying glimpse into the mindset of the insane Left. I was heartened to see the Post piece about a neighborhood watch group, only to find this was the reality behind it. Reads like an Ayn Rand novel, with the characters running headlong off the cliff. Problem is, they’re taking a lot of good people with them. And a dog named Moose. 😡

This is what happens when the leftists take over the schools at all levels, when the drug-addicted homeless take over our public spaces, and when you have political leaders who don’t give a fig about public civility and safety, so they hamstring law enforcement. Anarchy ensues. Society disintegrates. Rudy Giuliani is in bad odor these days, but NYC was a vastly better, safer, place when he was a mayor making public safety a priority.

I shudder to think that the people Suzy describes, some of them at least, are voters. SMH

If you tried to write a satire of the Brooklyn woke that is funnier than this real-life tale you would fall well short.

Truly these people - Democrats all - are insane. Caricatures. Feckless freaks. There is no helping them. No hope for them. If you want to know why our cities have fallen apart, look no more deeply.

These are the very sort of people who have turned our lives and our country upside down. They are the same lunatics who insist that gender is fluid, that borders are racist and now - in the most unimaginable and disgusting foray in long list - insist that we must call pedophiles MAPs - minor attracted persons. You are not dealing with normal, sentient beings. Laugh at them if you must But they are not your friends.
