 Why doesn't Jimmy Van Bramer ever point the finger at NYCHA?

Is NYCHA at all responsible [due to contributory negligence] for violence that happens? What do you think?
If NYC Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer was concerned about NYCHA's gross negligence and depraved indifference when it comes to tenant safety safety at Queensbridge Houses, he would kick NYCHA's ass about their neglect of unlocked lobby doors and light outages that ensure the get-aways of criminals.

What is little talked about, is that NYCHA has past history of deliberately leaving lobby doors unlocked to punish tenants for not "Volunteering" for Tenant Patrol [or whatever that protection racket is now called]. Crime victims' attorney should contact us for more information.

We report more NYCHA wrongdoings then he does!

1. Create a novelty to promote condo sales

2. Make it harder to cope with Sandy-like problems along the waterfront. Hard to re-route rails due to flooding!

NYCHA Board Meeting
Mentions Privatization "26 Developments"

reports "NY Housing Authority Bringing Private Investors Into Far Rockaways Project"

New Landlords for NYCHA Tenants

http://www.gothamgazette.com reports:
The goal of RAD is to alleviate the debt burden felt by local public housing authorities by allowing them to sell a stake in their properties to private development firms that can then refurbish the units. When a public housing authority sells a stake in their public housing property to a private developer and redevelopment of a public housing development takes place, the tenants living in these units are no longer tenants of a public housing development but become Section 8 voucher holders living in a private-public property, while the housing units themselves are required by law to continue as affordable housing units.

Lady has gone to court with problems. Now NYCHA wants to retaliate by moving family to worse place!

Shame on NYCHA

The NY Daily news has a report about a tenant who complained about mold. To get even they started eviction proceedings against her with such charges as unregistered dog. She was able to prove that her dog was registered with NYCHA. They used other phony retaliatory charges.

We know this can happen, as we ourselves were subjected to same underhanded treatment by Queensbridge Houses management. We were [among other things] accused of having an unauthorized air conditioner. We were able to prove that we had been paying NYCHA extra monthly money for TEN YEARS for air conditioner electricity. Maybe a corrupt NYCHA official had siphoned off the money?

Did you know that NYCHA has a history of
to punish tenants?

They have removed lobby door locks where tenants did not "volunteer" for Tenant Patrol duties; sitting as unpaid guards in the lobby. Supervisors of this protection racket got paid.

Regarding stabbed children we Tweeted:
"Tell us: @NYCHA @SholaOlatoye : how did perp get in building? Unlocked lobby door?"
UPDATE, yes NYCHA kept door unlocked!

City of New York would have more money if they weren't paying for so many NYPD lawsuits.

According to records compiled by the Comptroller's Office, New York City paid out a record $732 million to settle lawsuits in the last fiscal year

wsj.com: "New York City's $41 million settlement in the "Central Park Five" lawsuit..."

The city has agreed to pay nearly $600,000 to settle allegations that police wrongfully arrested a group of Occupy Wall Street protesters

New York City has agreed to pay nearly $18 million for the arrest, detention and fingerprinting of hundreds of protesters, journalists, legal observers and bystanders during the 2004 Republican National Convention?

$333K in settlements: High Ranking NYPD Cop, Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna, gassed prisoners.

#ManhattanDA Vance says  5% of NYC residents live in NYCHA housing, where 25% of city crime occurs.

NY Daily News Reports: Major crimes such as shootings, murder, robberies, rape, assault and burglaries in NYCHA's 334 developments have risen 31% since 2009.

http://www.qchron.com further expounds:
Among what the paper called the "worst of the worst" is Queensbridge South, which it said has seen major crime jump 47 percent since 2009.

VIDEO  "Queensbridge Houses and Astoria Houses
 are ENEMY projects"

NY Daily News reports at http://nydn.us/1O5iQlSs:
"...8.9% jump in major crimes in NYCHA developments this year through May 15 compared to the same period last year. That’s in contrast to a miniscule 0.2% rise citywide during that same period."

NYCHA crime increase is forty-four times the citywide crime increase

NYCHA Rents may go to 35% of income

Perp may have fled into 41-11 Vernon Boulevard which NYPD photo shows may have have had an open lobby door. NYCHA has in past punished tenants by creating safety hazards, I.E.: leaving doors open. That door does NOT properly secure as tested Wednesday.
