As a long-time resident of East Third Street, and a survivor of 3 or 4 NYPD SWAT raids on the Hell's Angels - all I can say is that the NYPD are ass wipes - blah blah blah about what "heroes" they are - they are fascist pigz - they cordoned off and blockaded the street for hours. We were prisoners on our own street - with those assholes screaming and yelling at those of us who live on the block and who wanted to come and go as free citizens about "the dangerous situation" yadda, yadda, yadda.
I hope the HA sue the crap out of the city and the NYPD again and get some more millions out of them - so utterly ridiculous. When ever there is a complaint against the HA, the NYPD prick pigz come swarming in and then accost everyone on the block who wants to leave or get back home.
I have to say that police-riot-photog Clayton Patterson was right there and got some candids of me arguing with the idiotic, brain-dead, numbskull, drivel-babbling cop. It was also reassuring to see Ron Kuby in action and adding up the dollar signs on the legal action that is sure to enSUE!
Empress, remember a thousand years ago the graffiti on this block across from the HA clubhouse? "When in doubt, bash them in the head." RIP -In memory of Vinnie.
As William Love (aka Jasmine Allspice) said to me when I asked him if he missed New York living in Miami – "I only miss New York when I am visiting."
