Spring fling



Some of the first travelers of the season were spotted in Tompkins Square Park today. One relieved himself on the holiday tree.

And where was the park enforcement patrol officer to arrest this scumbag for indecent exposure (since he took his dick out in public) and ticket him for public urination?

Is there a PEP? If not, why not? The city can't afford to have ONE person patrol the park and make sure people don't take leaks on trees and act in unlawful manners?

It is time for one person to patrol this park and tell people what's what. Act like an ass, you're out. I'm talking about crusties like this idiot which he is one of.

Time to take back the park from these scum.

A camp was set outside the memorial of the 2nd Ave Fire his morning. Around 7-10 of them with sleeping bags.

Damn right. Crusties, you're out. Smokers, you're out. People who blast their stupid music in the park, you're out. People who let their dogs run on the central lawn, you're out. People who use the chess tables for anything other than board games, you're out. Anyone sitting around the children's playground unaccompanied by a child, you're out. Anyone wearing MAGA hats, you're out (well, OK, that's probably not unlawful but we can make them know they're not welcome).

Here in California one wizened old hustler peed on the fire hydrant. Security was watching, but didn't do nothing, saying he has "alzhiemers".
I told the "security" that i'd tell all my homeless frinds as long as you use a tree or hydrant, your OK.
Of course if I tried this i'd be arrested for indecent exposure.

Nature pees are the best!

@9:28pm: You think ONE enforcement agent can effectively patrol the whole park? Either you know some magic I don't, or I want what you're smoking.

That said, it would be nice if the NYPD and/or Parks actually gave a damn about this situation.

And it would be nice if NYC somehow was not "home base" in good weather for these losers who have no interest in working for a living, and who must hate it when they have to go home to their parents' basements in the winter. But I presume they are Trump voters anyway (or would be if they could ever get un-skunked).

This guy is a total a-hole. Saw him do this multiple times to the tree, but what is one to do other than yell? The poor gardener told him to stop and he was verbally abusive with her. No PEP to be seen anywhere ever. Scumbag was too lazy to walk over to the restroom which was OPEN.

One solution would be to put live electrical wires in the base of the tree so that anyone who pees on it gets the shock of their life. Just call ConEd, they aready know how to electrocute anyone. Problem solved.

@1:09 I'd share what I was smoking but I'm fresh out and I'm selfish. But I definitely think a single enforcement agent with a range of non-violent weapons for compliance and control at their disposal could go a long way to keeping the riff-raff in check. Taser makes a very imposing stun shotgun in case a real show of force is needed. Actually Taser International (not a sponsored post, I swear!) makes lots of cool "smart" weapons.

Eventually, I think every officer on patrol will be assisted by a police drone capable of administering larger payloads if necessary as well as real-time advance aerial surveillance. OK, I'm getting ahead of myself. "Your move, punk!"

I also like how everyone I dislike is likely to be a Trump supporter. It's crazy how that works out.

Ahhhh the joy wait till the dog days of the summer then think about a sun break in the park

1:09 and 2:29

I think one (but preferably two) police officer on a $400 Trek bicycle could cover pretty much all of TSP. You can bike around the entire park and hit every path in about five minutes.

@Giovanni - the tree still has lights on it, so we're halfway there!

Anonymous said...

@2:29pm: Can you share with me the technology by which one PEP officer can be everywhere in TSP at once, aware of & monitoring all that is going on within the park, including people peeing on trees, crusties shooting up, etc.? Maybe I'm unimaginative, but I just don't get how that works.

Hey schmuck, it is illegal to smoke cigarettes and weed in the park/an NYC park. It's illegal to smoke weed in public period in NYC save for medicinal reasons (not entirely sure on that exception.) It is a noise violation, a ticketable offense to blast music in the park. It might be illegal for people to let their dogs run on the central lawn (if it's not it's inconsiderate - have your precious dogs run in THE DOG RUN.) Iff you don't have a kid and you're in the children's playground WTF are you doing there? Pervert. People using chess tables for other than chess, oh please, but if you take up the last available chess table to eat food and keep two longtime chess dudes from playing chesss yeah get the fuck up out of respect for their longrunning pastime, you can eat somewhere else (you don't HAVE to get up but it would be nice.)

Hey 1:09pm what are YOU smoking? Yeah you and 6:55pm one dedicated, dogged PEP could clean up that park, or at least put a big dent in the plans of the scum who ruin it for most people. The park isn't as big as you make it out to be and all the things you talk about don't happen all at once. Word would get out that you're on people like shit and things will clean up.

I think there should be four PEPs (north, south, east, west) who also keep an eye out on the perimeters and can serve as auxillary police, too.

I was always live and let live about the crusties until I saw one of them shouting and swearing at an elderly woman on St. Mark's. She was just walking by, and she couldn't walk fast, and he followed her yelling at her. He had been doing it to other people but I was stunned when he did it to her. I was in a restaurant across the street and came out and caught up to her on the corner of Second and St. Mark's. I told her I was going to walk with her a bit. She didn't speak English and was scared of me, too, and probably thought I was another weirdo! But I accompanied her down to the church on St. Mark's toward First Avenue. The crusty gave up on hounding her once I got there.

Ok that's exactly what I'm talking about. Now if this crusty was harrassing her from the park and I was a PEP I'd tell him to get out of the park and if he refused I'd have him thrown out, arrested or not.

All you people telling me one person can't clean shit up, bullshit. Again, if you are on them like shit, white on rice, a tick to a hound, word will get out and they will behave or disappear.

The neighborhood needs to show up 100 strong before a group of 5-20 crusties and tell them to get the fuck out. These crusties or someone else wouldn't call 5-0 and if they did what are the cops gonna do? We can't surround them 100 strong and tell them to stop shooting heroin, siccing or theatening to sic their dogs on people, pissing on trees, shitting and pissing outside the park bathrooms etc? YES WE CAN. We don't have the authority to throw them out ourselves but we can pressure them to get out. They make people not want to come to the park, so let's give them a taste of their own medicine. Take what you dish bish. I'm talking about the crusties aka fake homeless not the actual homeless - leave them alone unless they bother people (case by case basis.)

In fact I think we should reach out to the real homeless and help them. They're the real homeless not these patchouli/shit/piss-smelling stinky smelly funky ass brown dirt caked t-shirt Jesus Christ bearded, dredlocked shitheads who pop up when the temperature rises and vanish when the temperature drops.

Now we're talking. We knew there must be a 365 day use for the holiday tree to be lit up! Why not turn the lights on while we're at it? xo

100 people with say 20 dogs surrounding the crusties will drive out the crusties

Get them out. They're scum. They're not even punks, just punkasses who can't fight one on one. They're lucky it's 2017 not 1987 or 1997 cuz if it was they'd be stomped out.

JB said...

Good to see sentiment finally turn against these poverty tourists who shittify Tompkins. Used to be that these comments sections would be full of crustie defenders. Pretty sad to see the park in the shape it's in now just a few years after refurbishment. Compare that to WSP, which has been kept up very well since the remodel.

Drive out the crustee (trustee of a trust fund + crusty.)
