The NYPD has backed off from its plan to push four huge Queens public housing developments out of a police unit devoted to protecting public housing.
Tenants and Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Queens) raised hell about the proposal, demanding answers as to why NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton would make a move they say would have contradicted his “community policing” mantra.
On Wednesday, the department switched course, deciding instead to create a unit that will exclusively cover the developments — including Queensbridge Houses, the biggest housing project in America.
“We won,” said Queensbridge Tenant Association President April Simpson-Taylor. “They’re going to compromise. I’m really excited about this.”

They don't like the police.
They don't like the shootings, stabbing sand killing...
She related to Bishop Taylor?
They back off, reformulate, and pick it apart piece by piece. The unit will be gone in two years.
To be honest, I feel bad when tenants of a building(s) have to beg the city to keep a police presence in their building to keep the tenants safe.
I have never lived in public housing, and thereby, I am ignorant of all the problems they deal with on a daily basis.
How did we, as a civilization, allow our public housing to become so crime infested, that it must be policed day and night to keep people safe?
Where does the fault lie?
God help us!
I was looking forward to Nas's Illmatic II
They are going to CREATE a unit to cover the developments? There used to be one....
One of our daily tabloids recently reported NYC defended a suit brought by the family of a woman caught in the crossfire outside of her public housing complex had "assumed the risk" of being shot by living there as an excuse as to why NYC bore no liability to maintain a safe environment!
Police Do Not Have a Constitutional Duty to Protect Someone!
I agree with Jackson heights Johnny, I too feel bad for tenants having to beg for dedicated police protection because the place they live is so dangerous. However the answer is simple as to how we got to this as a civilization, we demanded that government provide a basic human necessity that humans should be providing for them selves. When a big government institution gives large quantities of people, many of whom can and should be providing for themselves, low cost or no cost housing at the expense of others there is NO OTHER possible result but a dangerous, horrible shit hole. We now need to pity the helpless dependents that live there and know nothing better because we have bred dependency deeply into them. Listen to these tenants when they speak. They never speak about moving away from this shit, they demand that we the tax payers through our government spend more money to try and fix the shithole. The thought never crosses their minds to leave, to take their families to a better place. Wake up people, this is madness.
