  • Thank You Officers *and EMTs, Securty, Firemen/women* Keep Safe..

  • Until the time Queensis held completely responsible for the costs & problems surrounding Homecoming which is their event, this uncontrollable idiocy will continue. While any charges are too high, KPD I’m sure I’d being very lenient in the charges laid in order to prevent absolute riots & even more destruction. I will never understand how Queens students & other University & College students are allowed to drink in the streets, destroy public & private property & generally do what they want when any ” regular” citizen would be behind bars before you could blink an eye. Implement immediate expulsion for a period of years suiting the infraction & really go after all lawbreakers involved in the partying & I guarantee some of the partying would fall by the wayside.
