Police are Looking for the Shore Road Slasher

 

 

The 68th Precinct are looking for the man above. They say the masked guy is the Shore Road Slasher who slashed and stole tires this weekend.  Story here

Just one guy? 

All that damage was done by one man?!  He jacked the cars up and took the tires by himself?  Didn’t you think he was in car with another person? We did! 

The 68th Precinct shared this tweet:

 

 

 

  

The time stamp is 4:23 am.  If he was caught on video here, he will be found on more videos soon.

 

 

 

They say the man had a black coat. It must be two different materials because the night camera is reflecting it like it is a lighter color. Also notable are his shoes.

Brannan Plays Politics on Vandalism Issue

 

 

We didn’t think we would see Justin Brannan do a play out of the old book of politics.  Last night at the Community Board 10 meeting,  Brannan offered a $5000 reward of his own money for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for vandalism in Bay Ridge last weekend.  See here

If you have lived here for a few years, you have seen this happen before! There is no info and no one will come forward….but a politician offers a substantial reward. 

Brannan wants residents to lighten up on him, yet he hasn’t offered any solutions to a reoccurring problem. Purchasing cameras for Shore Road would probably deter criminals. Checking that the 68th Precinct is following up on patrolling would help too.  The NYPD told us they were patrolling the area already, but that much vandalism takes awhile to do so we know they aren’t there.

People are upset about the vandalism and want Brannan to do something! Some say they are afraid because the cars are being vandalized and restaurants in the area were robbed too. (See here)  Even former City Councilman, Sal Albanese hammered at Brannan: (See here)

 

 

While both Brannan and Albanese are Democrats, I don’t think they are allies, as Brannan didn’t support Albanese in his election run against Mayor de Blasio. Albanese no longer lives in Bay Ridge, but his heart is still here.

Yesterday must have been veey wearing in Councilman Brannan as he went off at a resident at the end of the night. This resident has spoken up against the “crime is down” banter. Brannan’s had a lot more criticism from trolls and never reacted like this before:

McCabe Wants Crime to Be Addressed

 

 

 

According to Shorefront News, on Tuesday, November 19th at 12:30 pm, Liam McCabe will be outside of  Senator Gounardes’ office at 8018 5th Avenue in Bay Ridge holding a press conference. McCabe wants Senator Gounardes to address the issue of crime in Bay Ridge.  The recent vandalism on Shore Road has everyone in Bay Ridge talking. See here   

I’m not sure that our electeds recognize there is a problem as Gounardes didn’t make a statement about the vandalism on Sunday. Yesterday afternoon, he issued a statement, but didn’t have any new solution to the Shore Road issue. His late statement (see here) made it seem like he wasn’t concerned, as it came after his press announcement (see here).

Apparently, McCabe is a District Leader in the 64th District now. I’ve never seen that mentioned anywhere. Just this week, he tweeted that there needs to be a Townhall meeting about the bike lanes in Bay Ridge.

 

 

 

Supporters of Gounardes chimed in and asked, “Why doesn’t Liam ask the 68th Precinct the address the crime?”   SIGHHHHH…..anyone who lives here knows that isn’t going to happen (and we like the NYPD….but c’mon 68th precinct). Why do they expect so little from Gounardes?  Gounardes’ hands off approach and late statement on Monday afternoon tell us this press conference isn’t going to go anywhere.
