Moving dayScott Lynch

Good morning, East Village.

The Post reports that stop and frisks were down 34 percent during the second quarter of the year: “A city official with access to the data said 133,934 people were stopped by police between April 1 and June 30, compared to 203,500 from January 1 to March 31.”  Those stopped were “66 percent black; 26 percent Hispanic; 6 percent white; and 2 percent Asian.”

More Than Usual has a photo of a flyer that went up at the site of the notorious “private” bike rack. It appears that the owner of the bike that was stolen from the rack has not given up his search.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the city has declined to defend Deputy Inspector Anthony Bologna in a civil suit. Inspector Bologna is accused of pepper spraying protestors during an Occupy Wall Street rally near Union Square in September. The move means that the police officer “could be personally liable for financial damages that may arise out of the suit,” according to the paper. His lawyer is fighting the decision by the city.

The founder of Scratch DJ Academy at Cooper Square tells The Daily News that enrollment is way up thanks to the big bucks being paid to big-time DJs like Paulie D of the “Jersey Shore” reality show.

EV Grieve has a real shocker: the Gulf gas station on Second Avenue was converted into a BP on Wednesday.
