Crack is wack!

Police arrested an upstate man in Brooklyn Heights on drugs and weapons charges after transit officers stopped the alleged crook for hopping a turnstile on Thursday, according to a report.

Officers arrested the 32-year-old Schenectady man for drug possession and unlawful possession of a firearm after they discovered several bags of crack-cocaine and marijuana along with a loaded six-shooter in his backpack, a report said.

The officers stopped man after they say he jumped a turnstile at the High Street station shortly before 8:30 pm.

As the cops searched him they found several small bags of crack-cocaine and marijuana in his front pocket, and a search of his backpack turned up a Smith and Wesson .38-caliber revolver loaded with six rounds, according to a report. A second search at the 84th Precinct station house turned up a larger bag of crack in his pants, police said.

How dare you, Brooklyn Paper, use a cartoon of a stubble-encrusted white male as part of your crime header logo!
This is obviously a crude racist insult aimed at white males, especially white males with stubble.
If you need a human logo to use as part of your crime banner then it's time, it's way past time, to move beyond race and gender portrayals.
How about a picture of a nasty, evil-looking cat?

I hate to be the one to say this, but I have waited and nobody else has so here it goes.

Hello, Stan. John Wasserman. I hate to say this, but I think that your behavior is just a little bit out of line, and that you are placing your anger into the wrong direction. If the Brooklyn Paper wants to use an image of the Hamburgler, that's their business. The folks over at McDonald's are the ones who created him many years ago.
