“There’s no police action, there’s no reach-out. There’s nobody preventing this, and you know we’ve had multiple calls to 311 but nobody really responds. It’s becoming a real problem.”
I went to college in New York City in the early 1980’s, and how well I can recall walking through the midtown streets, taking my life in my hand because the drugs and violence were so bad, always breathing a sigh of relief when I go to my destination without incident. New York City was a dangerous cesspool because it was run by Democrats, then Rudy Giuliani was elected mayor in 1993, and seemingly overnight everything changed.
New York City had a renaissance under Republican Giuliani, 42nd street was reborn and became family friendly, it was amazing. Now hardcore Liberal Bill Di Blasio is working tirelessly to restore Manhattan to it’s pre-Guiliani condition, and by the looks of today’s article, he is quite successful. This is what you get when you defund the police.
Apparent junkies turn stretch of New York City Midtown into a drug shooting gallery
FROM THE NY POST: A cluster of junkies has turned Broadway into a shooting gallery, injecting drugs unhampered in broad daylight and then shuffling around in a zonked-out stupor, seemingly oblivious to the Midtown bustle around them, The Post has learned.
If that wasn’t enough, the addicts are peppering the area with used syringes, turning individual planters on 40th Street and Broadway into mini needle parks.
“They’ve taken over the tables, blatantly using needles and shooting up heroin all day long,” said a local worker who asked that he only be identified as James. “There’s no police action, there’s no reach-out. There’s nobody preventing this, and you know we’ve had multiple calls to 311 but nobody really responds. It’s becoming a real problem.”
He called his own 311 calls “futile exercises.” The Post spotted several of the spent needles dumped at the scene — and even caught one of the vagrants shooting up out in the open on Tuesday afternoon, with no one stepping in or saying a word.
Another photo from a local showed four people slumped over at one of the tables at the busy intersection earlier in the day, with drug paraphernalia clearly visible between them.
“In the morning, they start early in the morning,” said construction worker Edgar Rivera, who’s been working at a nearby site in recent weeks. “It’s almost always the same people you see around. It’s always the same ones all the time. They are, like, here every day.”
“We see them sleeping on the floor,” Rivera said. “Sometimes the ambulances come around here to help them out. It’s always the same guys.”
An employee for a private sanitation company who gave the name Jeff said he’s worked in the area for about six years and the situation has gotten worse. “Disappointing the way they discard all the syringes. It’s not the safest,” he said. “In the last year, it’s gotten really bad. I’ve been seeing more syringes, discarded syringes, ever since they started coming in.” READ MORE

When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 15,500+ people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 150,000+ followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 15,900 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
