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.
