Here are some of the best bits of writing advice from the NYPL video archives.

He removed John Liu's Press Release from May 31, 2012 asking for a criminal investigation in to 911. Cy Vance said there is no need for one. Truth is yes there is and we need yet another new audit of 911 and for years before the first audits we needed a criminal investigation in to 911 and we still do. We also need an audit and investigation in to 311 spending and Board of Election, NYCAPS, NYCWiNS, FDNY Wireless, etc.
On Sunday Google YouTube blocked ad revenue on a YouTube on Rape Epidemic NYC including NYPD Rapists and Google years later has now blocked it my response is to remove all ads because news reports have ads by it so this is yet another misogynist attack and harassment -- a long list starting with under Bloomberg my entire YouTube channel was removed and I am one of the only activists to get my channel back with an APOLOGY! That was classy of Google YouTube to apologize. We wonder if Bloomberg has money in Google and also I have been harassed by Joe Tacopina and I had to fight and win to get my YouTubes up. I am also alleging Joe Tacopina may have committed a crime if he was the one with Chad Seigel -- if they both went on YouTube after I was savagely assaulted Google Dr Fagelman assault see a running punch to my head a hole in my retina...Tacopina if it was him used a sock puppet account to call me a C#nt and threaten to bury me destroy me if I took any legal actions AND TO SEE THE TABLES TURNED AND THAT IS WHAT THE CORRUPT NYPD DID THEY BROKE LAWS -- A PILE UP CRIMES FROM THE MISOGYNIST NYPD DETECTIVES WHO ACTEDO ON THE THREAT TO THE MD'S OFFICE WHERE I WAS TOLD I HAD NO RIGHTS AND IT IS OKAY TO TRY AND BEAT ME TO A PULP AND A RUNNING PUNCH TO MY EYE AND NYPD LIED IN THEIR POLICE REPORTS WHICH IS ALSO A CRIME AS IS LYING TO THE POLICE DURING AN OPEN INVESTIGATION AS IS THREATENING THE VICTIM.
