    It sounds like the city council did not consult with the Sanitation dept about the sticker bill. Is that correct? Pretty hypocritical, if true.

    So a guy kills a 14 year old, with an unlicensed vehicle, flees, and refuses a Breathalyzer and is not charged for killing another human, a teenaged human at that.
    Read the story below that one, a guy who defended himself by killing a “360-pound, machete-wielding home intruder” is getting out of jail after 4 years, and he is getting out EARLY.

    So the Rockaways doesn’t want the toll.  Fine.  How about also eliminating the Rockaway subway line, the most cost inefficient in the city?

    All the A trains could run to Howard Beach, and aquaduct..  The C could serve Lefferts.

    “Samuelsen said Wednesday that one- and two-year pacts have also been discussed.”

    That’s more like it.  Samuelsen and whoever he is negotiating with get paid every year, and the future is uncertain.  So as far as I’m concerned they can negotiate every year.

  • The police’s response to the killing of young Mr. Jeffers is pure spite.

    “The van driver seemed angry as he spoke just after the crash, according to a report.”

    He just hit someone, and his response is anger rather than mortification?
