No I do not. I thought cuomos new safe act was supposed to make NY residents safer, apparently not, this guy doesn't know what he is talking about, go figure.

For the most part the rest of our summer festivals will be safe. Corn Hill, Park Ave and the Jazz Fest are very mellow and do not seem to cater to the crowd that likes to cause problems.

Now the PR festival is something that I would be a bit leery of ... even though it is very safe the problems come after it is over back on city streets.

It's not about feeling safe, Crotchety. It's about being able to enjoy the festivities without having to deal with the bullcrap that the little punks enjoy doing. Want examples? Look at Charlotte on Memorial Day in 2011.
Video can be seen here:

So it's not about being afraid. It's about being able to enjoy things without this? Any questions?

What did you have to do to deal with it?? Are you one of the black guys in the video "dealing with it"??
Try and spin it all you want, Crotchety. Facts are facts. "Dealing with it" is having to put up with it when all you're trying to do is enjoy family and friends in a PEACEFUL, family friendly setting. You're making a fool of yourself. I suggest you shut up now.

It's not like a large group of blacks are going to beat up all you pure and innocent whites that came in from the burbs to our city.
Remember, it was "our" city before you people moved in and totally trashed it. Half the city is in ruins now, drive thrue and see for your self.
Yes it your city now and it shows.

Until the City gets SERIOUS about keeping festivals safe and orderly, one has to seriously wonder if it is really safe to go. The cops need to be PROACTIVE rather than reactive. The pattern has been that groups from the city want use these events as venues to settle their disputes. The cops need to establish a heavy presence at these festivals and pounce at the first sign of trouble. Dont wait for the trouble to erupt, EXPECT that it will and be vigilant. As far as race goes, I don't see this as a black/ white thing. I see it as people who need policing because they don't know how to conduct themselves. There are just as many white punks and low lifes as black ones...and they all need to be taught that savagery is not going to be tolerated in the larger community. Drop the hammer on them, establish a precedent...maybe then we can feel safe again.

The festivals are not safe when packa of ANIMALS RUN WILD. NOBODY with any sense wants to be around that. The cops need to beat a few of these thugs senseless at the first sign of trouble and drag them to jail. That's the reality and you're a godda##ed idiot if you believe otherwise.

How about the guy that was near the Lilac fest. Said he got caught between two groups and got stabbed? It took a while but the local media finally reported it.

keep spinning, ignorant one. It ruins it. No one wants to bring their family to an event where punks with their pants to their knees run wild, fight amongst themselves, try to intimidate everyone and ruin it. Get a grip. Loser.

The icons that you gave yourself, Crotchety, is only YOU agreeing with YOU. No one else agrees with you on this. I am NOT intimidated by black kids. What peeves me is not being able to go and just enjoy myself because of all the fighting. So what if they are fighting amongst themselves. It still ruins it for everyone else. You just don't get that. I don't want to spend my hard earned money at a place where people are fighting. If I wanted to see that, then I'd spend my money going to a real fight. I go to enjoy the music and the food, etc. NOT to see groups of kids brawling with each other and with the police. Period. So try and continue to spin this. You failed at convincing anyone of your lame argument. Period.

Am I going to ribfest? No thanks. And do I go to Durand anymore? Nope. Is it because I'm scared? No. I just work to hard to deal with a bunch of loud, rude, an obnoxious thugs on my days off. Not my idea of enjoyment for a holiday weekend. If I was really into that I'd grab a 40 and go hang out on Clinton.

This thread is titled "Do you feel safe?"
So this thread is about "feeling safe".
So why don't you just either say you are racist and don't feel safe OR you do feel safe as they are only fighting amongst themselves?
I must admit, it doesn't take much to scare us white people. We crack and crumble at the slightest tension. that's why we need our own neighborhoods and stuff. we scare very easily.
