A 16-year-old teenager in the Bronx was arrested this week for his role in the murder of a 13-year-old boy in a series of gang-related altercations.
“The older teen — whose name was not released because he is a minor — was arrested around 10 a.m. Thursday in connection to the July 11 broad-daylight slaying of recent middle school grad Jaryan ‘Jay Ripp’ Elliot on East 187th Street near Prospect Avenue in Belmont, cops said,” reports the New York Post.
“He is affiliated with an unspecified gang and has three prior arrests, for criminal possession of stolen property, grand larceny and robbery,” adds the newspaper.

New York Gubernatorial Candidate Andrew Giuliani -son of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani- posted a disturbing video on social media last month showing the Big Apple’s iconic Washington Square Park covered in garbage as he tried to enjoy a Sunday morning stroll.
“This is one of the great gathering places, not just in our city or state, but in the world. Look at this. It’s a mess everywhere. It’s Sunday morning. It’s a disaster. Crazy and chaos. Booze everywhere, it’s time for a change ladies and gentlemen,” said Giuliani.

Many blame the chaos directly on Mayor de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Guardian Angels founder and Republican candidate for Mayor of New York City Curtis Sliwa ripped Bill de Blasio in downtown Manhattan in July; saying the current leader of the nation’s biggest metropolis is a “police hater.”
“You now have almost a billion-dollar budget — more than most countries — and you still won’t re-fund the police!” Sliwa said.
“Which means you’re a police hater! There is no doubt about it.”
