Amid stunning blue weather and Japanese maple trees in full crimson glory, I stumbled across this scene on my morning walk.
It’s not my car, but damn, it pissed me off. WTF? The jerk-offs not only had to steal this Nissan Maxima’s wheels, but they also bent the car’s door panel using a plastic milk crate as a make-shift platform. Classy.
And the cherry on top? The crime was committed only a few feet away from Councilman Peter F. Vallone’s house — a symbolic reminder that all his chatter about crime increasing in the 114th Precinct is most definitely not over-blown.
