Another Bloomberg gun control accomplishment: Mail carriers refuse service to parts of Brooklyn

Written By: Bob - May• 06•13

Parts of Brooklyn, New York are so dangerous that U.S. Postal service carriers are refusing to deliver the mail. But we want to make the rest of the nation just as successful as that that run by the miniature mayor, right?

Snow, rain and gloom of night might not slow Brownsville mailmen down — but gangbangers sure will.

Postmen are too scared to deliver letters and packages to one of Brooklyn’s most crime-ravaged neighborhoods, a US Postal Service worker told The Post yesterday.

“The neighborhood is bad,” the worker said outside the Brownsville Station Post Office on Bristol Street. “I wouldn’t want to go into those buildings.”

Snail mail that goes undelivered finds its way back to the post office, where it can stew for several days until a carrier decides to deliver it — or residents are forced to come pick it up.

Community organizers organized a protest because residents are outraged that mail carriers won’t risk their lives to deliver their government assistance checks.

Listen to what this rocket scientist had to say:

“The postal workers have a right to fear for their life,” said Quantanya White, 38, a home health-care worker. “It doesn’t give them the right not to deliver the mail. Just because this place is bad, you’re not going to deliver the mail?” [my emphasis -ed.]

Actually, Credenza, if they fear of their lives, that is a damn good justification for not delivering the mail. Please re-read the “inalienable rights” section, item “life.” There is nothing in the Constitution that mandates postal workers have to risk their lives because resident have let gang-bangers, politicians and other Democratic Party franchisees turn the neighborhood into Mogadishu on the Hudson.

    “….because RESIDENTS have LET gang-bangers, politicians and other Democratic Party franchisees turn the neighborhood into Mogadishu on the Hudson.”

    nail, head, smashed flat.

    Vote, people. And if those elected refuse to live up to their oath, vote again from the rooftops.

      ‘Voting’ does no good. Look where it has gotten us today.

        Voting does good Jimmy—but—it’s good for the politicians who dreamed the idea up!!! As long a a population votes the criminal politicians know they’ve got their ass, as there is no difference who you vote for they’re all the same gang of criminals. Great scam!!!!!

    Maybe the area wouldn’t be filled with generational gang bangers if their daddy’s stayed with their baby mommas and actually cared enough to love and raise their children. Stupid only begets stupid. Until some people learn to stop being the victims of their own domestic problems, and blaming whitey, they will never be able to educate themselves and join the rest of society. And I love me some black ghetto booty, so don’t you call me a racist you cracker haters.
