In other words, the festival takes place on streets that are not under govt control. Sounds similar to the signs in the southwest US near the border advising Americans to stay away because that part of the US is controlled by the Mex cartels.
OK, so at least the govt should put up signs around EAst Flatbush where the known gangs operate advising citizens to stay off those streets or risk a stray bullet or two while the gangbangers do their thing over turf.
Reminds me of when Washington Heights was totally not govt controlled before Rudy became mayor. Remember the cops being attacked by junk thrown off roofs.
Think DeB is gonna clean the gangs out of East Flatbush?? LOL I guess the drug trade is paying off more people than we might imagine.
