[Ed. – When gangs attack, dragoon…the shopkeepers into service. Of course, some of them were kind of asking for it.]
12 alleged members of the extremely violent transnational gang, the Trinitarios, that traces its origins back to the Dominican Republic, were being arraigned in the Bronx, for the unfathomably violent murder of a 15 year old boy, Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, affectionately known as Junior. He was dragged out of a Bronx bodega and stabbed and slashed with machetes last month.
Perhaps the fact that NYC is a “Sanctuary City” enticed those thugs to set up shop in the Bronx.
The final three paragraphs of the ABC New report are worth considering:
The tragedy is also spurring changes to keep young people safe. Several lawmakers say they’re rolling out a Safe Haven initiative in response to Junior’s murder that would require small businesses to be a safe haven for teens who are seeking help.
That final paragraph is outrageous beyond belief — while NYC law makers are supportive of illegal sanitary policies, they are now calling on shop keepers to protect innocent victims like Junior under the auspices of the “Safe Haven Initiative.”
