Will We Be Ready for Halloween?

DSC_0268

Halloween 2012 approaches and you maybe remember (Recently Transferred) Commanding Officer Deputy Inspector Georgios Mastrokostas, had promised a sustained response over the years to ensure Halloween 2010 would never happen again. Halloween 2011 saw a major response and a quiet calm halloween.

That statement was the past, we now have a new Commanding Officer of the 61 Precinct; Captain John M. Chell. As of right now, there is no public statement or commitment of resources for our area. In comparison to last year, DI Mastrokostas reached out early to residents for ideas. Hopefully we will hear something soon.

Locally, there has not yet been any statement. However, the GBPOA (Gerritsen Beach Property Owners Association) will meet the first Wednesday of October.

The 61 will more than likely keep the same response level. If they keep the same level of response we should expect:

  • Officers at every other intersection.
  • Officers at the Parks.
  • Patrols following Buses.
  • Roving patrols in weeds with all terrain vehicles.
  • Sky Watch (this is a long shot, but it may be available)
  • TARU Video cameras and such (also a long shot but who knows)

  • never cater to punks,bullies

    the police must show these cowards who is in charge not sitting in their vehicles or giving a half ass chasing someone.let thecommanding officer at roll call order his officers to arrest anyone who is displaying any kind of criminal mischief to people, children, store owners, who are minding their own business.arrest them take the time to process their paper work and let them sit and cry in that cell with the other thugs, punks. these punks will meet some real hard core juvenile delinquents.any other day when you destroy property,trying to hurt people you get locked up.halloween isnot a free ill disrupt the neighborhood.let these punks go to the fields at marine park. at 20feet beat beat each other up throw eggs, 0r destroy your own personal property.word will get around criminal mischief is a crime. your future can be ruined.

    LET THE CHILDREN ENJOY HALLOWEEN,PARENTS SHOULDNOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THEIR CHILDRENS SAFETY OR THEIR OWN.IF THEY TRIED THIS IN THE ROUGHER NEIGHBORHOODS YOU ARE NOT GETTING AWAY THIS CRAP. LET THE CHILDREN ENJOY THEIR DAY AND HAVE A LIFE TIME MEMORY. IF A POLICE OFFICER GETS HURT CHASING ONE OF THESE PUNKS, GUARANTEE ALL HELL WILL BREAK LLOOSE. ARREST THESE COWARDS EVEN IF IT IS A MISDEAMNOR. LET THEIR PARENTS PAY THEIR BAIL MONEY OR RESTITUITION TO ANY PROPERTY DAMAGGE THEY CAUSE.

  • liberty and justice

    let the children enjoy this day, parents shouldnot have to worry about there chidrens safety or their own safety.let these punks try it in the rougher neighborhoods,you are not getting away with that crap.arrest these punks even if it is a misdeamnor. let the parents pay their bail or restituition for property damage or one day a visit at rikers island adolescents prison. LET THE CHILDREN ENJOY HALLOOWEEN AND HAVE A LIFETIME MEMORY. WHEN A BULLY OR PUNK KNOWS THERE IS NO REPERCUSSION TO THE MISCHIEF THEY DO. A BULLY KEEPS DOING IT.

  • I’m all for it as long as this marshall law day on Holloween is citywide. I would hope that the police would be giving the same consideration to all the neighborhoods where kids throw eggs at buses and car service etc. As long as the would be arresting the kids in Sheepshead Bay, Marine Park, Bed Sty, East Flatbush Etc. then it wouldn’t be discriminatory. Let’s not forget the other boros, they all have kids who get into mischief on Holloween as well. Whew! They are going to need a lot of cops! Happy OT Guys!

    This is my twin grandson and granddaughter’s first Halloween in GB and I am very concerned about illegal guns on the streets. They want to trick or treat in GB instead of with me in Bay Ridge which is fine but worries me because I won’t be with them and my daughter and son in law. Halloween seems to be a time that kids go crazy and Senator Golden’s not doing anything about it and keeps shrugging off all our problems. I think it is the lawmakers who need to do something about this and not the poor police officers. They are trying their best but without support from te top it isn’t helping.

      Gerritsen Beach is a very safe neighborhood. Kids love trick-or-treating in the neighborhood – lots of candy, lots of families out and about, and lots of decorated houses. It is really a nice experience. I believe this site has some pics in posts of previous years under “Halloween – The Good”. I’d worry more about my kids after dark in Bay Ridge.

    • Ryland

      Typical Beacher attitude,Ginnie ! The way some of these people deal with the problem is to make believe it does not exist. Notice how they hit the dislike so your truthful post went away. As far as Anon goes, do you really miss all of this ? These kids have been out of control for years,the way some of the good parents of the Beach handle it is to Have another Bud,Great Example. Throw rocks at a young mother with her child? Now that is a great thing to do on Holloween.Maybe the Police will force these Punks to act in a civilized manner.

  • Anonymous

    make a few arrest, these punks will stop, a bully or punk will keep on doing stuff, when there is no repercussion. they know nothing is going to happen to them.word will get around, the police are waiting there orders from their supervisors. give them a bus ride for a day to the adolescent prison on rikers island and a 10 hour tour inside the facility. god bless you ginnie and your family. be safe.never fear a punk, bullies, or thugs.

  • Jake

    What a waste of Police manpower.
    Just because some parents refuse to take responsability for their children.
    It was bad enough when they threw eggs. The last few years rocks and bottles? Bus windows smashed? Delivery truck windows smashed?
    Buses wont go past Ave. U?
    What a disgraceful bunch of kids reside amongst us.

    • Irish Kevin

      Wow!! Jake I am surprized that your post is still standing. Just keep telling the truth sooner or later you will be Disliked into Beacher History. What did they say when an Ostrich sticks its head in the sand.We have the sand and many people sticking their heads in it.

    I don’t no y adults are complaining they probably gone egging at least ones in there life teen should have fun on holleween

    • Anonymous

      @ Anonymous, Yes, I have gone egging as a teen but it was just eggs and only against friends or another group of teens that challanged us. Under no circumstances did we target adults and their children, throw rocks at a bus causing service to stop, or destroy the bus stop shelters.
      Because as you put it “teen should have fun on holleween” which is spelled “Halloween” You’re having your fun at the expense of the families trying to have a good time for their children. You’re the reason we have to have a police presence here to ensure the safety of trick or treaters and their families.

    • Jake

      someone should hit your mom in the face with an egg.
      Then we can see how you feel about it.

  • Anonymous

    It is a shame that the police have to be stationed all over Gerritsen Beach for Halloween, but it is not a waste of police manpower. The criminal acts that have been tolerated in the neighborhood in recent years are over. Halloween should be fun and safe for small kids, not an excuse for teenagers to run wild, attack buses, and terrorize neighbors. Please help this situation by keeping your teenager off the streets. This has really gone too far. When we were kids, we threw eggs and shaving cream at each other. We did not attack people on the street and destroy property. There is a big difference.

  • Jake

    It is a waste of Police Manpower.
    The parents should be baby sitting their idiot children instead of the NYPD. Posting numerous cops up and down Gerritsen Ave. to stop rock and bottle throwers?
    Shameful.
    The City should send a bill to the GBPOA for the cost.
    Nothing like a hitting someone’s wallet to get their attention.

    • The Beacher

      Holloween 2010 was a nice way for People to see the Beach. We are called Trailer Trash ever wonder why? The Kids running from the Police Great Picture. I for one think that respect starts in the home. All of our residents should teach that to their children from the time the little ones can understand English. As said by another it seems that Buddy Wiser is more important than acting in a civil manner.Lets hope that this October 31st the small children are allowed to enjoy Holloween. If not my New GB.net name will be the EX-Beacher,my pride of GB will be History.

  • annon

    I agree it is a waste of Police officers time to babysit the kids in Gerritsen Beach, just to stop them from throwing rocks and bottles .
    They should be in the projects stopping the kids from shooting each other.

    • Anonymous

      First of all Annon, it’s not a waste of time for the police. They are not baby sitting the kids/punks, they are protecting the law abiding families in GB to ensure they have a safe Halloween. We pay taxes and are entitled to that protection. As for the projects, let the shoot each other. Sooner or later none of them will be left.

      • annon

        I have lived in this neighborhood for 40+ years and NEVER have seen horrible violence on the Avenue on Halloween. I am sick of the whining on this board.

        How come when someone was stabbed on the Avenue about a year
        ago. NO ONE asked for more police patrols on the Avenue .

        Just this morning I was driving on the Avenue and there was someone lying on the side walk ,who knows how long the person was there. Apparently no one was patroling the avenue if they were they might have seen this person

  • Anonymous

    They need to arrest some of them on real charges of assault etc.

  • Anonymous

    you have to set an example, arrest them, teach them a lesson,anyone could get hurt by rocks, bottles, eggs,or a serious car accident.when there are no repercussions,a punk keeps on doing criminal mischief incidents until they are stopped.Its the law. Let these punks learn a little about criminal law. May the children, parents, store owners,have a safe Halloween.Marine park is 10 times bigger than g.b. no police precense on stand by. MAKE G.B. PROUD STAND UP AND PROTECT WHAT IS YOUR(children, homes, stores,) right to enjoy a safe Halloween.

  • J Because

    When I was a teenager, the accepted game was shaving cream. My childrens’ time had eggs. Each suceeding generation wants to do something that is their own. Where that is going seems very troubling when seeing the recent trend. I believe it is time to educate current trick or treaters and modify the future to keep the fun part and establish that the fun part is not to be the destructive part.

    teach them a lesson, arrest them,let them learn a little about the law.criminal mischief is a crime.halloween is for the children to enjoy not for parents to worry about their childrens safety.hard working store owners deserve that respect also. punks like this attention, no repercussion they will keep on doing this nonsense until they are stopped.

    One police car and two ATV’s should be enough to keep these

    Looks like most people on here are in agreement.Now we need to get out in the streets and take care of our own. There is plenty of time to start a street watch program.

    • Anonymous

      Beacher, I thought there was a street watch progam. The problem is we have to obey the laws of that program and these punks know it. If I remember correctly, if you make a citezens arrest. you can ony hold the person if they give you permission to, otherwise you have to let them go. But then again who has to know if they happen to fall very hard and get hurt!

  • Irish Kevin

    The Beacher has the right idea.

    I have been seeing post on here for year’s about getting together and putting these punks in their place once and for all. But it never happens. Lets get together on 10/15 at 7:00pm in front of Larry Veiling field and come up with our game plan.

  • glenn s.

    let G.BROADHEAD INIATE THE MEETING.

  • Yuri - Liquor Store

    Last year these “kids” (and I use that term very loosely) broke the window of my store and almost injured someone, who was working here that night. The idea that throwing a rock and damaging someone’s property seems like fun is just, for the lack of better word, well, idiotic to me.

    The sad thing is that the window was smashed a week after Halloween. Sure, Halloween was nice and quiet, but these punks got all upset that the police ruined their “Halloween Massacre” and were harassing my store for a week, throwing small rocks every night, until, one night, they got a bright idea of throwing a huge rock that broke a window and cost me significant amount of money to replace.

    This year, I will be at my store myself, getting ready with my trusted baseball bat. Unfortunately for myself and Laundromat, we are easy targets since we are the only ones open on the avenue at that time. 61st Precinct promised me increased presence. However, I will believe it when I see it. The only thing I hope is that neighborhood actually teaches these punks a lesson.

    After the smashing of the window last year, many people stopped by every night for weeks just to make sure that I am OK and nothing like that happens again. I am very thankful for that. However, this year, I am hoping that this doesn’t happen at all.

    • retiree

      mr.yuri i feel your pain get a good security camera, where these dirtbags cannot destroy it at a certain height. talk to a good reliable security company. they will give you ceertain ideas how to secure your store. the money it cost to fix that window could have been invested in a good security camera. there are so many cameras these days, that you least expect that is a camera looking at you. a bat does you no good, it will get you in trouble. a video can incriminate anyone, piotures donot lie. that will be your evidence. hire someone off the books, have them watch your store at night, these muts, perps will get a surprise of their life.i did plenty of security in the past for people that need it. the beach is small word travels quick, leave that store alone, its constantly being watch. the owner has someone watching the store. get a unknown family member that these muts donot know protect your store differnt hours of the night. change your routine, time schedule, let the camera be your justice.these muts will be crying when they are loked up with real hard core dwlinquents.be safe, ptrtect you investment, never let these muts ruin your life, or disrupt your business or most of all your family.

  • retiree

    hire a crazy person that is a complete stranger to the beach people,that peron will catch these dirtbags and do a rambo on them. word travels fast, leave taht store alone, a crazy mother bleeper is watching that store all different hours of the night when it ie cloesed. i done that also for different people in the past. respect all people busineess, but most of all children, safe halloween.

    • desmond g.

      you catch one dirtbag, the rest will stop.they act in grups these muts.have them arresested their parents will ask you mr. yuri please, i will pay for the damages, my kid made a stupid mistake. its your call mr yuri. safe halloween.

  • Anonymous

    The way I see it this year can go one of two ways. Either we do nothing and the avenue will have a strong police showing year after year which sends the message to the rest of brooklyn that our neighborhood is not safe. Or we kick a few punk asses but good. This will bring the police also, but I guarentee they will only have to come once to investigate with no results and the punks will never get out of line again. This too will send a message to other area’s. The hard working honest people of GB take care of their own.

    Sorry, but I just don’t get GB. I didn’t grow up here but have lived here for 22 years now. Seems like half want to get together and beat up the punks which most likely will never happen. The other half just like to point fingers at the their neighbors and not talk to them or get involved. You can’t have your cake and eat it too!

      22 Years ? You hit the nail on the head.

Now 30 years ago it was a different story.

        Thanks Ryland. The times have changed. When I was growing up in the 60′s if I was caught doing something bad by a neighbor, they had my parents permission to beat my ass. Then my parents would beat my ass too. Over the years more and more laws have been passed to protect the kids. I’m all for laws which protect kids, but they also tie our hands as adults and parents and pretty much lets these kids run wild. As an adult or even a parent, lay a hand on a kid and you can find yourself in jail.

    keep the uniform police offioers visible, so they are seen by everyone but have some undercover police officers positioned in different areas,they wil get a better view of anyone causing problems.the punks will not know is that person a cop or not.we the beach residents hope the new commanding officer captain john m. chell has a strong strategic plan to stop this nonsense for good.arrest them, make an example of one of them.

  • Dog Catcher

    Desmond G. calls them muts. He is so right. They travel in packs of 10-20. I say we get 40-50 dog catchers together and round up all these stray muts, put them in a cage and throw away the key.

    People have been posting on here about taking care of our neighborhood and going after the punks. I doubt this will ever happen. I can’t blame anyone for not getting involved in this type of vigilantism. We grew up, have resposibilities to our families, our homes and our jobs. Why jeopardize what you have worked so hard for to achieve? These kids don’t have these things to lose. They may even retaliate causing damage to your home or family. I understand a few good beating will put them in place and make them stop, but is it worth the risk?

        stop the bull that it is us.

        soon we will be red hook with our own central booking located in the heart of our neighborhood the land that has no promise for the future

        punks come here o commit crime because it is allowable.

        or maybe preferable for the golden crew. do not commit crime in marine park or mill basin.

        we are he catch basin—get it

    when a person is trying to hurt you eggs, bottles, rokck,you have the right to defend yourself , family, home business.we are minding our business, with our children, family members, these dirtbags are instigating the situation.i will be dammed, if i let these dirtbags hurt my children when they are trick or treating. let the police enforce the law and stop day dreaming getting out of the uniform and working undercover what ever rank you are unifirm or plainclothes, YOU ARE SWORN UNDER LAW TO PROTECT AND SERVE.its not about the paycheck its called pride, honor to wear that badge to the utmost.we the civilians our hands are tied, we cannot do a dam thing, unless we go psycho on one these punke. ENFORCE THE LAW AND TEACH THE DISRESPECTFUL PUNKS, PERPS, A REAL LESSON ABOUT THEQUALITY OF LIFE.

    vote out our reps and that is how change will begin.

    if we vote in the same old we will have the same old

    marty golden is an ex-cop he should be fully aware and should be ashamed of himself for the condition of our police response.

    not just during halloween but all of the time.

    the gas line should be something he spoke to us about and we should have been aware and perhaps had more time to stop
    it.

    gerritsen beach is worse than it has ever been. i too grew up here and when there were children caught by eye doing something you could bet your bottom dollar before you got home your mom was paddling the hamburger flipper and waiting patiently. neighbors would call you out and we(the children) would be embarrassed and know we were in trouble.

    then if the children did it again and again then the parents were treated as rif-raf

    These kids need a serious beating . Little assholes and their parents are the even bigger assholes that raised them. Maybe some of the business owners should get a gun permit and use it to shoot one of these kids in the butt cheeks.

      A beating yes, but a gun is a no no! If a business owner used his gun and his hands were shakey, he could miss his butt and shoot him in the back causing the kid to be paralized for life or worse…dead! I have a feeling this will be the same as last year, a strong police showing and the kids will wait a few days before they attack.

    How about you Anon ? Just like old times when Hubby worked there.

  • Mr Murphy

    So Beacher you think you are the Original ? I Think Not, The Original Beacher was a Guy that roamed up and down the Ave.A Beer in one hand and a Joint in the other.He also worked with some of the Roofers in the Beach Swaying back and forth on the Roof. Now this Guy was A real”Beacher”.I wonder if anyone remembers this guy he had redish blonde hair and was about 28 or 30 years old back in the 90s.He was always out of it.

  • anonymous

    I think you might be thinking of a kid we used to call “Opey”
    Have not seen him in quite a few years either.He was a really a nice ,harmless kid…

    Nice guy. Anyone know whatever happened to him?

  • Anonymous

    He reminded me of a guy in Bay Ridge in the late 70′s early 80′s. He walked around 4th avenue with his beer. He owned a colonial house but prefered to live on the streets. Found out later he was a POW in Vietnam and was kept outside in a cage for 5 years. He couldn’t take being inclosed inside anymore. Opie didn’t have that problem, but he reminded me of him from time to time.
