Is Midtown Headed Towards Protest?

According to one vendor who parks on Clarkson Ave. in Flatbush, the cops have been trying to get rid of them ever since a dispute between two vendors ended in a fight last month. That sounds familiar…

    the fight that happened last month, did it end with one man stabbing another? or am i mixing my stories again?

    i remember hearing about it on the radio but wasnt sure, and it wasnt in midtown so i didnt think it would be up on this site anyway

    This sucks, but…

    Am I going too far down the ‘blame the victim’ path to feel a little schadenfreude towards Hamdy Akl?

    “I’ve been through many harassments, blah blah, whine whine”

    Yet HE’S the guy who tried to force someone ELSE out of a legit spot and started the whole thing? Where do these guys get off bullying people out of spots and then crying when they get shoved? Guy’s a real (st)ick in my book.

    These halal guys are the worst. I’m NEVER giving any of them any business, ever. Not that I really like that greasy dark meat all that much, anyway.
