Patrolling will wont do a damn thing because the cops are everywhere in Bed-Stuy. Its bad enough New York is becoming a police state and people are letting it be. But its ok cause slowly we all would die or end up in jail thats the master plan hate each other for PETTY SHIT!!. The problem lyes in the mentality we have for one another (People of color) how can anyone respect us if we dont respect us? The guy that was killed wasnt a close friend of mine but when we saw each other we had a common respect. He was full of life and he loved to have fun. Very talented just like everyone in the "Hood" he wanted out he wanted better for him and his family. Keep in mind you are who you are and he was like the Mayor in the community. R.I.P Vexellent you are missed.
