Elmsford, N.Y.: Now that Veron Primus has been convicted of homicide and kidnapping this summer time in St. Vincent, maybe Legal professional Common Letitia James can fulfill her promise to the household and associates of Chanel Petro Nixon and produce her killer again to New York to face justice for her homicide (“Get justice for Chanel,” column, Oct. 3, 2019). Having marched with the household for 15 years, I heard fairly a number of politicians and activists say how they are going to search justice for Chanel. We now have a suspect who was recognized in 2016. We now have waited six years for him to be extradited again to the U.S. to face justice.

Why has her case not been a high precedence, as promised by those self same politicians? I’m positive that if she was from a wealthy household, her story would garner extra consideration and outrage. We had Primus jailed for different crimes, but he slipped by our fingers and was exiled again to his house nation, the place he did the identical crimes that have been executed in opposition to Chanel. Now could be the time to appropriate that injustice and produce him right here in order that there may be closure for Chanel and her household and associates.

Being well-acquainted with the world’s parks and transit, I can say this proper of manner is a priceless useful resource for increasing mass transit by the neighborhoods of Forest Hills, Glendale, Woodhaven and Ozone Park. Most of those areas are an extended bus experience from the closest subway station. Further park house is all the time good, however there’s the large Forest Park close by, which is among the greatest within the metropolis. To rework the rail line into park house could be of far much less profit to the native communities than growing transit accessibility. Overlook the extraneous park and construct the wanted subway line. Joseph McCluskey
