Drug Use On Roosevelt Island's Main Street At Night Reports Resident On RI 311 See Click Fix - December Monthly Public Safety Blotter and 2011 Annual Public Safety Statistics - Still No Answer On Child School Gun Incident


According to a January 12 report to RI 311 See Click Fix:
young men smoking drugs at 7:30 pm near church and library on RI

3 young men walked right past me, handing their drugs they were smoking to each other at 7:30 in the evening with not a care in the world. I am sick of smelling that toxic drug here all the time, shey is there no foot patrol at night on the island?

Public Safety December 2011 Blotter

Still no comment from RIOC or the 114th NYPD precinct on whether a gun was present at any time prior to the arrest of Child School student during December 13 incident. Child School denies a gun was present but there have been reports that claim otherwise. The December Monthly Blotter describes the incident as:
  • JUVENILE RELATED (INCIDENTS)
    12/13/2011 566 Main St NYPD ARREST Male student threatened staff with a gun and fled the scene.  Male was apprehended by NYPD and taken into custody.  Parents notified and on scene,
It is unclear why the incident is describes as Juvenile Related since the student was 18 years old according to RIOC. Also, if there was no gun present during this incident, why won't RIOC just say so and put the matter to rest? What is different about this Roosevelt Island Public Safety Incident that RIOC will not comment whether a gun was involved?
