Drunken homophobic idiots threaten reporter with physical violence

This comes in response to the story about public drinking and fighting at Juniper Park that we linked to last weekend:



In case you don't have 8 minutes to waste watching this dreck: they go on and on about how the story drawing attention to their lawlessness takes up more of the page than a story about a servicemember killed overseas.

Then they call the reporter a "streeted out street fag," one of them says "your dumb ass should be put in Afghanistan and my cousin would be more than happy to f*cking snipe you," and "Let me catch you in the street."

It's great that these goons actually taped their aggravated harassment. It's going to make the NYPD's job that much easier... Mike Reka and Billy Bottles will soon be finding out that a letter to the editor would have been a better choice. These two definitely seem like the type who wore "Thanks, John" baseball caps in the 1980s.

My favorite part was the recitation of the poem about how the soldier is the one who fights for our freedoms but then claiming his cousin in the army would shoot the reporter for exercising freedom of the press.

Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. - Samuel Johnson

Two words. White Trash.

If you thought Archie Bunker gave Queens a bad name, watch out for sewage like these two.

David said...

WTF? Why don't these two fine American patriots go to Iraq themselves instead of beating each other in the park and threatening people while their cousins are off doing real fighting.

Implied threats and psychotic violent behavior.. are we sure Dennis Gallagher isn't behind one of those shadows.

How does Pastor Toro feel about these streetfighting idiots desecrating his favorite poem while making threats?

Taxpayer said...

These brave and patriotic morons need some time behind bars.

Not the kind where pervert Gallagher spends his time and money, but where all the bubbas will demonstrate their affection for this behavior.

Proof that reactionary throwback rednecks abound even here up north!

I love these armchair "patriots" who'd shit their shoes if they were tossed an M-16 and told to fight for their country!

All mouth, with their "brains" located further down south!

Biography of Mike Reka:

"Having grown up in Middle Village (MURDA VILL), a neighborhood in Queens New York also known as "The Resting Place of the Dons," the gangsta lifestyle and mentality was everywhere. From the local streets to the local cemeteries – Carlo Gambino, Joe Colombo, Vito Genovese, Carmine Galante, and "Lucky" Luciano are just a few of the cemetery celebrities – Reka saw people protecting what was theirs and respecting those that commanded respect. His school years coincided with the crack epidemic of the 1980s, leading Mike Reka to street life that included graffiti, gangs, drugs, and general illegal activity. This period of his life, though troubling, is the source for much of Reka's pain and emotion evident in his music today."

With this type of resume, the guy could get a job working for either Serf or Como.

Actually, he'll be Como's first appointee to the community board.

His school years were in the 1980s and he's going around filming drinking and fights in the park? And I grew up in Middle Village during the crack years...it was one of the few places that was pretty much insulated from that crap.

Leave it to these numbnuts for there to be physical evidence of a fight (video) and they're still saying it didn't happen.

italian girl said...

My school years coincided with the crack epidemic of the 80's and somehow I didn't get involved in illegal activities.

Excuses.

It sounds like these 2 idiots are challenging all (the MV neighborhood, police, press, JPCA, etc.) to stop them. Love to see something done by authorities!

Anonymous said...

I hope these 2 don't think this is their right to freedom of speech or just a funny video submission for YouTube for publicity. It's pure garbage.

IF THEIR FAMILY MEMBER THAT IS SERVING OUR COUNTRY PROUDLY KNEW WHAT THESE 2 MORONS SAID ABOUT HIM SNIPING ANOTHER AMERICAN I AM SURE THAT HE WOULD BE DISGRACED. THESE 2 WANNABES ARE A DISGRACE TO MV AND ALL ITALIANS EVERYWHERE. AND JUST TO SAY 1 HAVE 2 BROTHERS IN IRAQ WHO COMBINED DID 5 TOURS ALREADY SO I KNOW ABOUT PATRIOTISM, THEY DO NOT.

That was his grandfather in the picture behind him? I thought it was the Michelin Man.

the best is at one point he says more than 3 quarters of the page it's more like 75%. What Math Skills Baby!!!

what?

I guess since these morons were dumb enough to fight and drink in public and tape it, they are dumb enough to threaten a reporter with bodily injury and tape it. Nice of them to leave an evidence trail for the cops.

Why not make this guy Vallone's outreach guy for anti-graffiti measures? Since he has a history drawing it and is a paisan, he'd be a natural for the job.

Anonymous said...

Best line: "I'm mortified." I guess he was just speaking for everyone who viewed his video.

Roger said...

According to them, they are streeted out street elected officials. They don't act too much differently from the real ones.

Anonymous said...

Middle Village??? Wow, what a shock that two fine upstanding citizens such as these, would come from anywhere else. Poster 1 got it right. WHITE TRASH.

People like this give your neighborhood a bad reputation...one that is hard to shake off. At their age...they should really be doing something else, instead of acting like a couple of 15 year old morons.

Ahh jeez, listen to all these new transplants bitch

This is nothing new !! The Ridgewood-Maspeth-MV triangle was always notorious for it’s over share of Guido morons.
I thaught they'd all moved to Massapequia or Island Park to be with each other by now.

I won’t even get into Fresh Pond Road, “The Arena" during the Vinnie Barbarino and Saturday Night Fever summers.

If I were a don I wouldn't trust a moron like this with a lowly job as a go-fer for my morning espresso... let alone give him a spot as a bottom line soldieri!

You'd have to whack him after his first assignment to insure his silence because he'd be blabbing about it all over the place!

"Gee, I work for Don Ciccio in MV. I get him his coffee and do other things for him too"!

Yeah... right! Dumber than dirt!
(Actually dirt has a higher IQ)!

I think that it is sad no one is focusing on the facts. Yes they are a group of guys acting like morons in the park. OK, granted they should be in a backyard. But does no one see their point, I mean come on.

Freedom of press, bla bla bla! As a reportner are you really happy with a career like this, did you always want to be a reporter focusing on stories like this.I'm not a reporter and I can give you 10plus stories a week that mean more to the neighborhood than this shit! But keep writing your free or weekly papers and goooood not about the real world and things that really matter!

And while reading through the comments oh course you all agree because your all the same idiots reading and writing on this site!


The saddest part of it all is the whole little click of all these neighborhood politicians ( and Im talking about the ones who arent elected but think they are!!) will focus on something like this and continue to ingore the real issues in the neighborhood!

Good job!

Queens Crapper said...

"But does no one see their point, I mean come on."

No I don't see their point or yours. There were plenty of other stories in that same paper about issues of neighborhood concern. This was just one of them. The point of these drunken asswipes was to try to intimidate and look cool to their other loser asshole friends.

Julie said...

"I'm not a reporter and I can give you 10plus stories a week that mean more to the neighborhood than this shit!"

I'm not a politician but I can give them 10 plus issues a week that mean more to the neighborhood than the shit they shovel down our throats daily.

Your all a sad bunch!

I call your bluff: Specify 10 topics for this week. Just do the headlines.

White Trash Writing said...

"Your all a sad bunch!"

A frighteningly large percentage of individuals fail to understand the difference between the words "you're" and "your".

Understand the proper usage of the word you're. It is a contraction, or a combination of the words you and are. Other examples of contractions include doesn't, they're, and can't.

"You're all a sad bunch." ("YOU ARE all a sad bunch.")

Pastor Toro indeed, give me a fucking break, that guy is the biggest piece of crap there is. There should be a blog about his phony activities, self promoting photo ops and underhanded political machinations.
