We are saddened and greatly concerned about this event, but don't want to jump to any ill-based conclusions and add to any misinformation; as we find more info, we will report back. Both the NY Daily News and 1010 WINS (via BViB) have coverage on-line, and the 72nd Precinct will only acknowledge that "there was an incident last night."
FoSP trusts that we see these murders as a wake-up call for the need for more police presence (uniformed + plain clothes) in Our Park and more appropriate support and outreach to the growing numbers of young people in our neighborhood.
If seen and analyzed through the right lens- Best Practices and a Human Approach- the murder of these two young men should elicit more attention to our park and its patrons. We can't turn back the clock, but, at least, they would not have died in vain.
