James Makin
01:28:44
they prey on them, the use their past as a shackle for their future.

#Diana4MHDA
Estee Williams
01:29:56
What should be the punishment for stealing an IPhone from the apple store? just curious. thx
Craig Peru
01:29:57
exactly Diana. What is criminal and what is not!
Craig Peru
01:30:36
Estee, may clepto therapy? something like they offer for other non violent crimes?
Estee Williams
01:31:09
What about if they took it from someone’s bag after threatening them? (is that violent?) Also curious.
Estee Williams
01:31:57
Kendra’s Law is by far the most effective assisted outpatient treatment program of any state in the nation.
Craig Peru
01:32:07
so that depneds on the burden of proof right? what type of threat? what were they found with? a weapon? what type of weapon then? verbal threat? Grade A clepto threat?
Ruben Colon
01:32:30
The real crimes are being committed upon communities of color by Predatory Contractors and Developers who enslave generations of Construction Workers!
Ruben Colon
01:32:46
often workers of color.
Craig Peru
01:33:07
Ruben, well said.
Estee Williams
01:33:48
Screaming “give me your phone or I’ll kill you”. no weapon.
Ruben Colon
01:34:15
Thank you Craig. People like Diana Florence have pursued bad actors in the Industry.
Craig Peru
01:34:23
Estee..then maybe a joint therapy program. mental health and cleptp therapy.
Estee Williams
01:35:00
that doesn’t sound like a deterrent to me
Craig Peru
01:35:31
I've learned that about her and support her to the fullest. I have friends of color in the construction and real-estate industry and this is something we disucss frequently.
Craig Peru
01:36:00
a deterrent? or a means of reahabilitation? which one Estee?
Craig Peru
01:36:23
Is it worth not addressing mental health and maybe an issue like cleptomania?
Craig Peru
01:37:00
or do we include that with actual murderers or or those found with deadly weapons?
Estee Williams
01:38:56
Murder — by then it’s too late really.
Craig Peru
01:40:19
no, your under a different level of thinkinng Estee.
Craig Peru
01:40:51
your already considering one guilty without any burden of proof and so on.. very awful state of mind tbh
Estee Williams
01:41:18
oh no I’m assuming it happened to me and I was there.
Craig Peru
01:41:37
so you were murdered?
Craig Peru
01:43:00
you make no sense. "im assuming it happend to me and I was there"? what does that even mean Estee>
Ruben Colon
01:44:25
I asked a question in the Q&A ... just wanted to ensure it was seen.
Estee Williams
01:44:38
Thank you for your insights.
Craig Peru
01:45:02
of course Estee.
Laura Acosta
01:47:08
and this is why she is the best option for this city. She does not know fear, she is a bad ass! Sorry Reverend!
Ruben Colon
01:47:29

Laura Acosta
01:48:08
Mental Health is key!
Cynthia Alvarez
01:48:17
Diana Florence for Manhattan District Attorney!
Ruben Colon
01:48:53
Transitional Programs for those of us coming home!
Ruben Colon
01:49:51
The #CycleOfPoverty must be broken!
Ruben Colon
01:52:00
A good District Attorney who understands what our communities face, especially in the world of work, the discrimination, the pressure from companies that exploit us would go along way to leveling the playing field.
Craig Peru
01:52:15
Agreed Ruben. WE have quite a few transitional programs tbh.. IT now boils down to which organizations provide the best and most valuable transitional programs.....
Ruben Colon
01:54:23
During the Great Depression the Unemployed and the Homeless were one in the same.
Craig Peru
01:55:11
agreed
Ruben Colon
01:55:13
A good job with good pay & benefits go along way to avert poverty.
