Awareness Needed

Jaliek has had “the deck” stacked against him before he was born. He was exposed to drugs as an unborn baby. And he was born as as a drug addict. It’s no mystery that he had severe emotional problems. And he spent his earliest years in foster care. And I’m not putting down foster parents; I know that many are in foster care to serve their country and give back. They aren’t the system; they work for it. And, yes, I know that there are the “bad applies.” But Jaliek needs justice. There have been no tips, leads, suspects, or arrests. Have information about Jaliek’s whereabouts? You’re advised to contact the Greenwich Village Police Department. Call them at: (518) 692-9332 or 9-1-1.
