Opinion: New York City law enforcement is paying their civilian lie and scam team to say that I smell. 

Loading

Greetings,

I’m going to run through my routine of how I stay clean.  

I used to provide web marketing services for companies. 

I was having a great experience. 

Then people I know paid New York City law enforcement and law enforcement in other states to sabotage me. 

People I know pay law enforcement for a variety of crimes. 

I tried to report the NYPD and law enforcement to various New York City and United States government agencies, and they blocked my phone number. 

I have been living in the New York City streets homeless for the past 7 years. 

I’m on public assistance (welfare).

I receive between $500 and $600 per month from the Human Resources Administration (HRA), the New York City public assistance office. 

This is how I stay as clean as possible and smelling fresh while living in the street homeless. 

1. I wash my clothes 3 times per week. 

I visit self-service laundromats that cost approximately $4 to $5 each time to wash my clothes. 

That equals $15 per week and $60 per month. 

2. I never wear the same socks twice. 

I don’t wash my socks. 

After I wear a pair of socks once, I throw them out. 

I buy inexpensive socks for about $1 per pair. 

That costs $30 per month. 

3. I shower every day. 

I belong to a gym. 

4. I have tons of spray deodorant. 

It smells great. 

I have enough spray deodorant for the next year or more. 

5. I shave my head completely bald, so I don’t have to wash my hair. 

6. I wash my backpack. 

7. I wear all rubber shoes and keep them clean. 

8. I located very inexpensive places to buy t-shirts and sweatpants. 

9. I have a storage room where I can keep clean clothes and my belongings in Midtown Manhattan.

The NYPD and New York City law enforcement has a plain clothes civilian lie and scam team that consists of thousands of people. 

The lie and scam team includes women and men of all ages—corporate executives, students, etc. 

They don’t officially work for the government or law enforcement. 

New York City law enforcement uses their civilian lie and scam team to sabotage people and run scams. 

New York City law enforcement has several members of the plain clothes civilian lie and scam team that belong to the gym I’m a member at, Baruch College, etc. 

The last thing I’m going to say is about pets. 

I love dogs. 

I live in Manhattan, New York City. 

New York City law enforcement would like to say that I’m dirty, I smell, etc., and have 30 members of their plain clothes lie and scam team say I’m the worst thing they ever smelled. 

What about people that own dogs?

I never owned a dog. 

How many times per day does a dog have to be taken outside to go to the bathroom in New York City? 

Does a person that owns a dog give the dog a shower or bath every single time the dog goes back into the apartment after being walked? 

If not, then what happens to all the dirt the dog picked up when walking around and rolling around in the horrid New York City streets? 

Then the dog is rolling around in the person’s apartment, bed, etc., for the rest of the day. 

Additionally, what is the deal with people’s sneakers and shoes? 

People are walking around in the slimy Manhattan, New York City streets.

Then they walk into supermarkets, gyms, and many other places without taking their shoes off. 

What happens to all the grime on their shoes?

Is someone following them around with a mop?

Do people take their shoes off in New York City businesses and walk around in their socks or barefoot?

The moral of the story is that we stay as clean as possible under the circumstances.

Unfortunately, we aren’t all billionaires.

I always treat everyone with the utmost respect at all times. 

In my opinion, treating people respectfully is more important than anything. 

I’m not judging anyone, although the reason you don’t hear about homeless people like me is because I blend in. 

There are a lot of homeless people living in the street that you wouldn’t know are homeless. 

I don’t smell. 

I don’t drink. 

I don’t have a criminal record. 

I don’t do anything illegal. 

I have a 3.8 GPA at Baruch College right now, with about 8 classes left to graduate. 

I’m making the best of my situation. 

If anyone has ideas how I can legally get the NYPD and New York City law enforcement to stop harassing me, please let me know. 

Now I’m going to spend my $8 food budget (SNAP, food stamps) at Whole Foods or the Union Square Greenmarket.

I’m making the best of my situation and trying to elevate.

Thank you and have a great day.

Follow up regarding my August storage invoice with the New York City Human Resources Administration. July 11, 2023.

Greetings HRA,

If or when someone is available, please let me know if I need to visit the HRA office on East 16th St in New York City every month with my storage invoice. 

Or can upload my storage invoice to the Access HRA mobile app instead. 

I uploaded a copy of my August storage invoice to the Access HRA mobile app this month.

 Additionally, I visited the HRA office on East 16th St in New York City this morning, July 11, 2023, and handed in a printed-out copy of my August storage invoice. 

I checked my Access HRA account, and the website hasn’t yet been updated. 

Access HRA isn’t showing that I was there today with my storage invoice. 

I checked under documents. 

I’ll keep an eye on the documents section on the Access HRA website. 

If, for some reason, the website doesn’t update and show that I dropped off my August 2023 storage invoice in person today at HRA 16th St NYC, I’ll gladly stop by 16th St again this Friday or Monday. 

Please advise.

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: I suspect New York City law enforcement, including the NYPD, are threatening the people at the Human Resources Administration not to pay my storage invoice.

Greetings HRA,

People I know pay law enforcement to harass me constantly. It’s nothing new. I’m used to it. 

I always treat everyone at HRA 16th St with the utmost respect at all times. 

I never mention to anyone at HRA 16th St that people I know pay New York City law enforcement to sabotage every move I make at Baruch College, HRA, supermarkets, and everywhere else. 

Every month I upload a perfectly clear copy of my storage invoice into Access HRA. 

Every month my storage invoice doesn’t get paid. 

Then I have to go to HRA 16th St in person with the storage invoice, and then it gets paid. 

Again, I’m not saying a word to anyone at HRA 16th St about law enforcement sabotaging me. 

I suspect law enforcement is telling people at HRA not to pay the invoice. 

Yesterday morning I brought my storage invoice to HRA 16th St. 

I was as polite and respectful as humanly possible. 

I just looked at Access HRA, and there is no record that my storage invoice was brought in to HRA 16th St yesterday. 

So now what’s happening is I upload my storage invoice, and nothing happens. 

Then I go into HRA on 16th St, and nothing happens, so I have to keep going back to HRA 16th St over and over. 

Yesterday the people at HRA 16th St said that the “system was down” and they would upload my storage information after I left. 

It was never uploaded. 

So now I’m going to go back again today. 

I will continue to treat your staff as politely and respectfully as humanly possible. 

It’s not their fault that law enforcement is being paid to run around the city and threaten people to sabotage me at every place I go. 

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. 

Thank you.

Opinion: Email to the New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA) about law enforcement (FBI, police) threatening their staff to sabotage my public assistance case.

Greetings HRA,

Personally, I think you’re doing a great job. 

I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times.

If you know how to look I’m currently suing The City University of New York. 

The case is called 

Mark Pine Vs The City University of New York. 

The whole case is about how rich people I know pay law enforcement to sabotage me at CUNY and harass me. 

I highly suspect law enforcement is sabotaging my case at HRA. 

I don’t blame anyone at HRA for allowing law enforcement to sabotage me or helping law enforcement sabotage me. 

I don’t have a criminal record. 

I don’t do anything illegal. 

The Manhattan District Attorney, the US Attorney for NYC, the NYPD, and the NYC FBI all blocked my number because if anyone helps me they are immediately fired if they are lucky. 

People I know pay a lot of money to the people in charge of New York City law enforcement to commit crimes.

For example, they like to punch women in the face, drug women, and attack women. 

New York City law enforcement can care less as long as they are being compensated. 

The other NYC government agencies are scared to death to upset law enforcement. 

Anyway, right now I suspect NYC law enforcement is threatening whoever is in charge of paying my storage not to pay it. 

I don’t take it personally. 

If someone at HRA doesn’t allow NYC law enforcement to run scams, NYC law enforcement could have them fired immediately in my opinion. 

Again I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times. 

I’m going to file a Notice of Claim with the NYC Comptroller this week. 

I will let the NYC Comptroller’s Office know that NYC law enforcement is threatening people at HRA not to pay my storage and see if I can get the courts involved. 

The only time I can get NYC law enforcement to follow any rules at all and be a little cautious when they are harassing and sabotaging me is when I get the courts involved. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Law enforcement is still sabotaging me at the Human Resources Administration and many other places.

Loading

This is the email I sent to HRA about it.

Greetings HRA, 

First and foremost I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times. 

No matter what. 

People I know pay law enforcement to tease me, sabotage me, and harass me every day. 

Law enforcement doesn’t have any oversight at all. 

I suspect that law enforcement is threatening whoever at HRA is in charge of paying for my storage. 

I uploaded a clear copy of my storage bill through the Access HRA app and the bill isn’t getting paid. 

Anytime I go to the HRA office on 16 St in New York City, law enforcement has women and men crash into me, shove their phones in my face, blow drug smoke in my face, cut me in line, they have drug addicts pretend they are handing me things, etc. 

I just ignore the women and men that law enforcement has harass me. 

I handle my business and leave. 

If anyone can look into what’s going on with my storage it would be appreciated. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Email to HRA about my MetroCard allowance and cold food retailers not accepting the welfare EBT card on January 13, 2023.

Loading

Greetings HRA,

First and foremost, I always treat everyone at HRA with the absolute utmost respect at all times. That is more important than any of this.

Thank you for saving my life with the food and money.

The stuff that is going on with law enforcement sabotaging people’s food at some, not all, soup kitchens is out of control. Thank God I don’t have to deal with that.

People I know pay the NYPD and others to harass me. That’s why I’m homeless.

Question. What is the story with the Baruch College student MetroCard money?

I’m a full-time student at Baruch College.

I think school starts back up on January 25, 2023.

If you’re not too busy, please let me know when the MetroCard money starts back up.

A few weeks ago, I stopped receiving my MetroCard money around Christmas 2022.

Additionally, can someone please look into why there are so many places in Manhattan that sell cold food that don’t accept SNAP/EBT/Food Stamps?

Sometimes I ask people at food stores, markets, supermarkets, etc., whether they take food stamps.

Some of them, not all, say they don’t take food stamps/EBT like it’s beneath them or something. Like, that’s for poor people or something like that.

In my humble opinion, that is ridiculous.

I appreciate the help.

I’m living in the street homeless for the past five years or longer.

I don’t drink.

I don’t smoke.

I don’t party.

I don’t do anything illegal.

Just no money and bad credit.

I don’t look homeless.

I understand the government doesn’t want people blowing the food money on bad things so that is why we are forced to spend out welfare food money at participating retailers.

The thing is, a number of Manhattan retailers are not accepting the card.

There are a lot of retailers that do accept the card.

I don’t understand why any cold food retailers would turn down food stamps when there are so many of us receiving them.

It doesn’t make sense.

Why would a company turn down government money?

Can someone please look into it?

Thank you and have a great day.

Mark Pine.

Greetings HRA, 

First and foremost thank you for all the help. 

I am a full time Baruch College student that has been living in the street homeless for the past five years. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. I don’t have a criminal record. 

I always treat all the HRA staff and security guards with the absolute utmost respect at all times. Most of the welfare recipients are respectful with the HRA staff like myself but it’s still a demanding job for the HRA team and they are appreciated. 

I’m not taking any classes this summer at Baruch College.

I was signed up for two classes and I dropped them both. 

I dropped one summer class at Baruch College on June 13, 2022. I dropped the second Baruch College summer class a week or two later. 

Fall 2022 I’m signed up for a full time schedule at Baruch College. That starts on August 25, 2022. 

In the meantime I did all the preparation to work for RF CUNY at Baruch College although I don’t believe there are any job openings. 

I went on a RF CUNY interview for the library and they said they had a large number of applicants for the position so they couldn’t hire me. 

When I was at LaGuardia Community College before Baruch College I was able to obtain a job with RF CUNY very easily. I assume that’s because it’s a much smaller school. 

At first I didn’t realize how competitive RF CUNY is at Baruch College so I was asking for the library. Now that I realize I might not be able to land a RF CUNY job at all I notified the CUNY Edge office I’ll take a job in any department. 

The reason for this note is that classes don’t start again until August 25, 2022.

Due to the fact that there are no openings at RF CUNY I’m unable to find a job so I’m not working. 

I’m still receiving the MetroCard money every week. If I’m not supposed to be receiving the MetroCard money I just wanted to point it out because I don’t want anything that isn’t mine. I always follow the HRA rules exactly as they are required. 

I just recertified my public assistance case so I’m set until June 2023. I just don’t believe I’m supposed to receive the MetroCard money if I’m not working for RF CUNY and I’m off from school. That was my experience last summer. 

Please advise. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Email to New York City Human Resources Administration about my welfare case recertification. June 7, 2022.

Greetings HRA,

I turned in all my documentation for my recertification. 

Baruch College turned in the school documentation. 

I had my interview in person at 14 Street Manhattan today June 7, 2022. 

I just noticed in my account that there was a language questionnaire. 

After I filled out and completed the language questionnaire I uploaded it into the Access HRA app. 

I uploaded it into the other tab because I didn’t see a tab for language questionnaires. 

I’ll keep checking for any additional updates. 

Please let me know if anything else is needed for my recertification. 

Thank you and have a great day.
