A tourist from Massachusetts was recovering at a New York City hospital after being brutally beaten by a gang of seven young men armed with a tire iron and a baseball bat, police today revealed.

Kevin McCarron, 24, from Andover, was battered and stomped unconscious by the men after an argument in the trendy Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan early Sunday.

An onlooker captured horrific cell phone video of the attack, showing several young men kicking the victim on the ground.

Time to ban tire irons and ball bats.

The version I heard was “The only thing he hit in the playoffs was the groupie fan.”

Of course not. That’s just crazy talk. You probably hate puppies too...

Better speech and debate skill would clearly diffused the situation.

“bet my house the attackers were black.”

Probably not in The Village; the deviants there wouldn’t allow seven blacks in their neighborhood together. It is a toilet, but a white/Asian toilet more than a black one.

Despite the fact that all towns and neighborhoods in MA are impeccably clean, and despite the fact that public drunkenness is completely unknown in that lovely state, the numbers sadly tell us that Boston is a much more dangerous city than New York City with significantly higher rates of violent crime.

FWIW, this is from the article:

“Hatem Farsakh, 24, is charged with gang assault, assault and attempted murder. Police also arrested Sherif Rizk, 22, also of Brooklyn, in connection with the case.”

I left for PA 25yrs ago, after working (lived in NJ) in Midtown for 17yrs; no way in hell I’d ever go back, either.

Behind enemy lines, we know to stay out of the urban welfare reservations. I’m barely 10 miles from NYC, and haven’t been there in over 10 years. An increasing trend (a problem, from the eyes of NYC’s tourism industry) is that an increasing number of young people in northern NJ have never been to NYC (and don’t intend to visit). Part of that is caused by the fact that the area nearest the city has become a Hispanic colony (and whites have fled west); another side is that nobody here believes it when you tell them New York City (or Newark NJ) is safe. Their crimes are reported on our local news; we know better.

I love stories like this; reading between the lines I’m guessing the tourist is a liberal (at least he was; now he’s been mugged, so that makes him a conservative).

“5:AM Sunday morning”

Young, restless, out half the night partying and drinking.

Now, you might think I am speaking like someone who blames the rape victim because she had dressed like a hooker.

I’m not really.

And the guy did not deserve what happened to him, and his assailants deserve the book thrown at them.

That said,

I lived in Manhattan in my 20s; we did the late-night Saturday night scene, on occasions. We also knew the things - getting drunk, certain locations, certain kinds of people and certain kinds of situations - to avoid. It was not very long before we recommended to our younger friends and family members that getting together socially with a gang of friends in your own apartments was as rewarding and a whole lot less risky than mingling with the drunkin hordes out for a big night in town. And usually if someone did get drunk at our place, a cab was called to come pick them up, or they had to stay at the hosts apartment until they slept it off; we never sent a friend drunk out into the streets.

I know the location of the event in the article. It’s on 14th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenue - Artichoke Pizza. A niece lives not too far from there.

That pizza place has done a great job at marketing itself, but I’ve had their pizza and I’m no fan.

About two blocks north of there on 1st Avenue is Beth Israel hospital. I hope that young man was taken there and not transported some distance to another hospital.

In NY violent criminals get shot by onlookers with cellphones and become hits on facebook and youtube. They are emblodened to conduct more violence, which also encourages others to do the same.

In places like Texas, violent criminals get shot by onlookers.

One method is a vicious cycle, the other is short and effective.

I haven’t been to the city in years, but blacks were only allowed there as individuals to sell drugs (to the NYU students); they didn’t have the right to assemble in that part of the city.

The last names indicate they may well be Asians; no shortage of them there.

My questions is, why didn’t the onlooker come to help the tourist? What a pathetic human being.

Clearly the vicious gang was made up of Muslims from Brooklyn. Check out the names:

Hatem Farsakh, 24, is charged with gang assault, assault and attempted murder.

Police also arrested Sherif Rizk, 22, also of Brooklyn, in connection with the case.

Ny Daily News reports the location as Macdougal Street, West Village not East. There is another Artichoke location there.
