  1. 1. If the witness is not lying about what she saw, are you okay with this?

    • Yes, I am. Captain DiGiacomo makes a lot of sense here.
      2
    • No, I am not. I don't care how many cops get punched, the right of young people to walk through neighborhoods in large groups should not be infringed.

PARK SLOPE — NYPD officers in patrol cars trailed a group of black teens walking through Park Slope and told them over their loudspeakers to "get out of the neighborhood," a resident who witnessed the incident said.

...

She said there were about five or six kids in the group and they appeared to be about 16 years old. The police had the dome lights on the top of their squad cars illuminated, but their sirens were off.

Commanding Officer Capt. Frank DiGiacomo ... confirmed that his officers routinely try to move large groups of young people out of the neighborhood because clusters of teens have created problems recently at the Atlantic Center Mall.

...

"We've had have large fights…and things stemming over to Barclays Center and things stemming over to robberies and assaults,” DiGiacomo said. "When one or two are hanging out, it’s never a problem, but when we have large groups of kids together and we don't ask them to move or go somewhere else, they become a larger group, and that’s when we get assaults."

DiGiacomo said he's working with the Barclays Center and school safety officers to come up with after-school programs that will keep kids off the streets.

Bennett, a former criminal defense lawyer, pointed out that Ninth Street and Seventh Avenue isn't very close to the mall — it's a mile and a half away.

DiGiacomo responded by saying that “most of the crimes that happen in our command are from outside people committing the crimes." He added, "if [teens] are not playing basketball, you’re not playing soccer, you’re not doing something productive in the neighborhood, I can see [officers] moving them.”

This is nothing new. I used to hang out in the mall with my friends and we would be told to keep it moving, even if we were waiting on someone.

wait - ain't some cities gots laws on the books against teen-clustering? I seem to remember something, somewhere, recently... can get citation, order to appear in court, but was just added in for brevity of sentencing, I think..

on a different note - Oh My, Gentle Readers - what if this cluster of teens were all wearing boy scout uniforms and were carrying garden hand tools??? what then?


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Why do you ask questions you already know the answer to? Of course they wouldn't have said shyt. Heck my friends and I were as far removed from gang bangers as you could possibly be, and we were always targeted.
