nbc ^

Posted on 01/25/2013 9:36:42 AM PST by traumer

Two teenage girls have been arrested in a violent subway assault on a 55-year-old man, punching him in the head in an attack that sent the victim to the hospital, police said.

According to police, the two teens were on a northbound 4 train departing Utica Avenue in Brooklyn at about 1 p.m. when they encountered a man and became aggressive with him, police said. The nature of the dispute wasn't immediately clear.

Police say the teenagers became violent and attacked the 55-year-old man, punching him in the face and head. Video of the incident showed the man eventually punching back in an attempt to defend himself.

The victim, Charles Bunn, was taken to Kings County Hospital with multiple cuts to the face and head.

The teens, identified as 18-year-old Chantelif Solano and 17-year-old Shaquana Rhem, were arrested on the corner of Franklin Avenue and Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn and charged with assault.

They are both awaiting arraignment. Attorney information wasn't immediately available.

NBC seems to be going out of its way in this article to not tell us the attackers’ gender.

I can see why they are so against concealed carry in particular and guns in general in NYC...fewer Obama voters.

Too bad Bernie Getz was not on the scene.

Let me guess. An old white guy who dared set foot on a subway in Brooklyn at the wrong time of day.

I am tired of media calling the perpetrators of these events anything but black...it is a word that they will not use. They aren’t fooling anyone.

He got a couple of really good punches in. He should’ve kicked them both in the groin, or grab their hair and slam their faces directly into his knee.

Two “teens”?

Caught trying to conceal race, the times betrays itself by releasing names. They’ll have to do better, and just assign generic names.

Chantelif and Shaquana are really dumb. All they have to do is say the White guy called them a bad name and they’ll go scot free.

The race war has already started.

These “kids” are always primed to go off. The guy might have accidently bumped into one of them (they usually sprawl their legs out into the aisle), for example, and not apologized in a way they thought was sufficient. Or maybe he even asked if they could move; it looked like he had been trying to get off the train or at any rate was standing near the door.

They’re always angry. They get up in the morning angry, they’re angry all day, and it takes nothing to set them off.

In all my years of riding trains and subways in Japan (nearly two hours a day for most of 13 years), I only recall one major incident which came close to this one.

I'm rather large (particularly compared to the Japanese) but not particularly intimidating unless I have to be.

On one morning commute, we had one of the 20is bosozoku (motorcycle gang) types seated in a crowded subway car and, as it turned a corner and shifted, a middle aged guy accidentally stepped on his outstretched feet.

Even though the guy quickly apologized, the seated bosozoku begin to get really belligerent. The Japanese in the area started moving as far away as possible from the brat as it looked like a pending fight. I don't like fights but I don't like bullies either. So as they moved away, I worked myself toward him. Just as he was about to get up and take a swing at the guy, I firmly placed my size 12 foot on his size 8 and said (in Japanese) "He apologized. Let it go or I'll get you off at the next stop to visit with subway security!"

He quickly sank back into his seat and behaved himself until my stop four or five stations later. I have seen subway security work in far less serious incidents than this (such as a belligerent drunk). The usually have four or five fairly burly cops with truncheons board the car a few stops later and quickly take the perp off the train. What happens after that, I'm not sure. But I do know that the Japanese do not like their train schedules disrupted even by the less than 60 seconds or so which it takes to remove one of these perps.

And thanks to the fact that you can’t even carry a knife there the guy had no weapon to defend himself. I will NEVER step foot in NYC EVER.

Heard about a survey, designed to look for and expose racism, of course, that found discrimination against resumes from people with names like Chantelif and Shaquana.

A rose by any other name...

Lucky you! It’s bizarre - I saw some innocuous looking guy get off at 42nd St and bump into some thuggy looking kid (for those who don’t know, everybody bumps into everybody when they’re getting off the train, because there are people trying to get on before the others have gotten off) who then pursued him and demanded an apology! The guy had actually already said sorry, since New Yorkers are more polite than you’d think. But that wasn’t enough for the inflated ego of this thug.

Fortunately, the guy (a Hispanic who was probably a busboy or waiter) apologized again and by that time the transit police were beginning to notice, so the thug got back on the train.

But these creeps are always ready to explode over nothing.

Great story...I hope everybody here reads it, because it really shows that no matter the country or race, thug behavior is thug behavior. Think Clockwork Orange.

The only problem is that here in the US, one particular group has been given a free pass on its thug behavior. This is unfortunate for blacks, because most of the thugs’ victims (like the older man in this video) are also black and I’m sure the average black person is not thrilled by this either. I live in a small town with an area where there are a lot of black people who keep a shotgun handy...not because of whites, but because of black drug thugs.

We’ve got to demand the same standards for everybody in the US. No passes on bad behavior because of melanin content.

But obviously white liberal judges, who keep releasing these thugs onto the community, think it’s just fine, since the judges don’t take the subway but get driven to work in black cars, don’t have to travel in public outside of working hours, and don’t live in any place where they might come into even casual contact with the thug contingent.
