Two bandits robbed three people at gunpoint in Prospect Park on July 7, according to police.

The victims were in Brooklyn’s Backyard near the park entrance at Third Street and Prospect Park West, when the gunmen approached at 1:30 a.m., cops said.

One of the robbers brandished a black firearm and ordered the victims to empty their pockets, according to police.

The late-night visitors to the park — which technically closes at 1 a.m. — coughed up their wallets and cell phones, and the thieves made their getaway, cops said.

Reasonable discourse

Hillary from Prison says:
Bad guys never have a problem getting guns. Allow innocent people to defend themselves instead of being sheep getting picked off by wolves. Eventually the Supreme Court will force these moronic liberal states to honor concealed carry laws, but why do anymore innocent people have to suffer before then?

Hillary from Prison says:
YEah, more guns are the answer, spoken like a true uneducated trumpturd. Facts are for losers.

Shows how ignorant you are. Democrats started the KKK. Know your history. They also started the violent Antifa. Eerily similar huh? That’s kinda what they are known for, threats, lies, intimidation and violence.

Hildebeast says:
Who are the bigots? For you history deficient Leftists, the DEMOCRAT governor of Alabama, George Wallace, was vehemently against school integration in his state back in the 60s. At Little Rock Central High School in the 50s it was the REPUBLICAN President, Dwight Eisenhower, who ordered the troops and the national guard to assist in the court ordered integration of that school. It was the DEMOCRAT governor, Faubus, who opposed the court ordered integration. The Left just rewrites history and spreads lies so that brainwashed fools , like the arrows guy above, can become loyal soldiers to do their dirty work. Minorities are tools of the Left. Throw them some scraps and never do a thing for them. Brilliant way to win elections actually.

Hildebeast and Pedo Billy from Chappaqua says:
That’s what the Left wants you to believe, you fool. How else are they going to get you sheep to vote for them? What happened to Obama’s ‘Hope and Change’? Has anything changed? Nope. Eight years of Obama and his loyal followers are still killing each other and still being gentrified out of the hood. Now these same fools who attack Trump because they were told he is a ‘racist’ are going to vote for someone like Kamala Harris because why? Her color? She’s gonna be the ‘savior’? Stop kidding yourselves. The Left makes everything about ‘identity politics’ because that’s what good commies do.

I like to say lots of stupid things. I never learned much in the short amount of time I spent in school. I hate women because they always shunned me. #INCELFORLIFE

Normal from Sloped says:
Comments about the history of Democrats and Republicans is irrelevant as obviously their mantra's have changed. There are good and bad in both parties depending upon your value system. Sweeping generalizations show a great deal of immaturity.

Corporations love feminism. The addition of women to the corporate workforce resulted in lower wages and less of a worker expense for employers.

Mike from Sweenpoint says:
How are you guys still on the Hillary Prison thing? It's a ploy from Trump. Trump's a con man. We all know this. Hillary is a retired grandmother roaming the woods of upstate NY. I really can't believe people are still buying Trump's BS. It's the same crap his pushed in 2016 and barely won. Hillary isn't a threat to anyone except Bill and he deserves it. Bubba and Trump will end up in jail next to their buddy Epstein for assaulting little girls. Trump would pick girls who looked like his daughter to assault. total pervert. Is he still your guy? What if he picked your daughter to assault?

Gary from Fort Greene says:
Mike, your TDS is getting worse. Seek treatment. Trump barred Epstein from his resort after Epstein propositioned an underage girl on the premises. Bubba will be implicated if this prosecution goes anywhere. It will be fun to find out who else was involved in the Lolita Express.
