TODAY IS PARADE DAY ON EASTERN PKWAY AGAIN .THESE PARADES ARE USUALLY FRAUGHT WITH VIOLENCE. LAST YEAR A YOUNG GRAD FROM ST JOHNS . WAS SHOT IN THE HEAD AND KILLED ,THE YEAR BEFORE A YOUNG BLACK ATTORNEY WHO WAS AN AIDE TO THE GOV. WAS SHOT IN THE HEAD AND KILLED.THIS YEAR THE AUTHORITIES ATTEMPTED TO MAKE A CHANGE IN THE FORMAT TO ONLY DAYLIGHT HOURS . THAT DIDN`T WORK , THREE WERE KILLED ON ST JOHNS AND SCHNECTADY ,THATS WHERE I HAD OWNED A POOLROOM FOR 15 YEARS. THERE WAS ANOTHER KILLED ON NOSTRAND AVE.IT`S THE SAME EVERY YEAR, THE CHASSIDS WHO LIVE IN THE AREA WANT THE PARADES RELOCATED BUT THE POLITICIANS ARE RELUCTANT TO MAKE WAVES.
