none of your biz from south jamaica says:
There are more guns where they came from. Too many kids getting killed in south jamaica. When you try and help the cops, they dont want to hear it. Which was my personal experience. Its not safe living there and I gave everything up and moved away from the area with my kids. It could of been a matter of time before one of mines or even myself, could of ended up dead. They are ruthless and have no regards for human life. Never mind NYPD, FBI needs to get involved because obviously its too much for the city to handle. These are gangs like the bloods who are killing our youth. FBI need to gather all the information they can and start tearing these gangs apart. I believe the killings will continue because these gangs dont care and they want their drug business to continue. Its all about poverished people who sell drugs and do whatever it takes to make acquick buck. Even if it means killing people. NYPD will get no where if they continue to lock the doors on those witnessess who are willing to talk. Obviously NYPD cannot handle this much deaths. That is why I suggest FBI get involved. Good luck NY and South Jamaica!!
