I just heard on NY1 that a man was killed in or outside Bartini’s Lounge in Forest Hills, Queens, in Forest Hills Square, right near the LI Railroad, but I didn’t see anything on the Web or in the news about it. Why is this?
The man was Black. May this be the reason why this has not been publicized? Is the 112th Police Precinct keeping a lid on this one? Is the Queens Community Council being silent on this one because it is the Holiday Season?? Why is this story not getting more Airtime??
A Mother’s Son was Killed. They say the man was jumped in Bartini’s and the Bouncers were part of the group of men that beat the Crap out of this guy who eventually died. The Mother is asking for anyone that knows anything about this to please step forward, so the Whole story can come out. If it is true that the Bouncers joined in on beating this Man to Death, should this not be known?? Hopefully a full investigation by Law Enforcement is taking place, and not a Cover Up.
Who owns Bartini’s? Do they have connections with the City? Do they have connections in the 112th Precinct?? Is this why this Story is not getting any Airtime?? Come on now. A Man is MURDERED IN FOREST HILLS, Queens AND NOT A PEEP!!! What is going on here??
Hopefully this Story will receive the Airtime it needs, so that Justice can be Served. Let’s hear what Really Happened at Bartini’s, whether The Man that died was at Fault, or whether it was some Thugs at the Bar who were at Fault, which may include the Bouncers participating in this possible Crime……………..

Haroon Walfall, 33, went to Bartinis Lounge in Forest Hills Friday night with a cousin and a friend. They told his Mother about a dispute inside that lead to his death.
Waide said, “He was talking to this girl. Apparently she had her boyfriend there. And maybe he got jealous and he attacked my son. And his friends came at him and they started beating him. They were all stomping at him. Stomping at his face with his boots.”
Waide says the bouncer threw her son out. In the car, Walfall complained of the pain, and his cousin took him to Franklin General Hospital where he died.
Waide got the call in Florida from her youngest son, “He said ma, your son is gone. He’s gone ma, he’s gone.”
Gone, with no real answers about who or why. The NYPD says the investigation is ongoing, but no arrests have been made.
The reality of a lost son is setting in. Walfall came to the United States from Jamaica as a toddler and just got his U.S. Citizenship six months ago.
The results of Walfall’s autopsy are pending.
This is my take on this situation, as Beatings have happened many times before in Austin Street’s Bars over the past couple of Decades. And Mobs have existed in the Bars of Forest Hills for years. Be forewarned if you go to a Forest Hills Bars, that many thugs are lurking. And these Suck Ass Pussies like to Fight. BUT they like to Fight 10 on 1!! Because 1 on 1, many of these Thugs would get the Crap Beaten out of them!!
This sounds like a Mob mentality ensued. A girl was approached by a Guy. The Girl happened to have a Boyfriend at the Bar, which Walfall may not have known about. The Boyfriend hits the guy, and then his friends also jump on Walfall. The Bouncers may have jumped on this poor guy also, as the original group of thugs that jumped the guy were probably friends of the bouncer(s).
The Bouncers then throw Walfall out of the Bar, so as not to have the Bar liable for his injuries. (so they think) If they didn’t throw the guy out, the Police would come and take a Report On Scene, and No Bar wants that. They would rather kick the guy out, and if the Police come by later, it is better for the bar, then to have them come On Scene. BUT in this case, this choice may have backfired, because Walfall is Dead. Now, the Police should be conducting a Very Through Investigation, and the Detectives should be questioning all involved individually. BUT even still, an Investigation after the fact is better for Bartini’s, then if the Police came on scene during the May-lee, or immediately afterward. One of the reasons is because everything would be ‘Fresh’ so to speak in people’s minds, and some of these Punk Ass thugs may have still been at Bartini’s. Instead of Police coming on scene Hours, or even Days later.
The people involved in the beating and Killing of Walfall are most likely laying low, and it is doubtful anyone who knows who was involved in this Beatingwill tell any True Tales to Law Enforcement. This is truly a Tragedy, and I feel a Miscarriage of Justice may be the outcome.
This is the usually protocol of Owners and Bouncers of Bars. When there is a problem like this, they always kick the Single guy out when he’s injured and let the thugs stay. No way would the Bar owners or Bouncers call 9-1-1 to get this guy some help. They almost Never do……If the bouncers or owners of this bar called 9-1-1, Walfall ‘May’ have gotten the necessary Emergency Medical Treatment by the Paramedics on scene and in the Ambulance, en-route to the Hospital. In retrospect, Walfall and his buddy should have called 9-1-1 themselves. The Police would have been called, and would have taken a Report On-Scene. Even if this had happened, the Police no doubt would have chalked this up to ‘just’ a Bar Fight, and try to talk the complainants out of making a report. hey may have said something like > ‘If you make the report, then we would have to Arrest everyone involved, and it may just be better to sleep it off.’ Or something to that effect. BUT at least Walfall would have gotten Emergency Treatment, which may have been the difference between Life and Death. Although Walfall may have Refused Medical Treatment (RMA.) This of course is all Speculative.
Hopefully there will be a thorough investigation, but this Tragedy may be just swept up under the carpet as ‘just another drunk guy beaten up who sadly died,’ and the thugs who perpetrated this possible ‘Crime’ will get away with contributing to Walfall’s Death. Truly a Sad Tale. Let’s all hope that Justice, if due, is Served………………………
