So bloomie.. Hows that gun ban working for ya? Curbing any violence?
But - but - but, NYC is FREE of violence, and there’s no need to defend yourself!
It’ll be a cold day in hell before I spend another minute in that hellhole.
Too bad the tourists weren’t armed — seriously. Only the nannies get that kind of security.
Go cut me a long switch...
... That'll learn 'em
“A tourist from Massachusetts .....”
Mayor Bloomberg should be so proud “Hey look, no guns.”
The challenge for legislators is where to draw the line.
Where in all this madness does the sane man draw the law against the insane man.
I say the time is nigh to ban New York City.
A Massachusetts tourist in NYC is like being on a latrine tour.
If the victim is a registered Democrat my concerns for his recovery stop cold...........
Hello conservatives trapped behind enemy lines.
This is a big hint to get you and your families out of commie red states and to Patriot blue states.
At this point, conservatives do not have the organization to come rescue you if you get in trouble.
The country is dividing and you’re on the wrong side of that divide. Pack your bags, love your families and get out while you can.
Nanny Bloomers and the mobster in the Governor’s mansion should be proud.
This is concrete proof that gun violence in NY City has been drastically reduced.
Well we know A-Rod wasn’t involved; he can’t hit anything after August.
THIS is why you need a high cap magazine.
Time to ban tire irons and ball bats.
bet my house the attackers were black.
“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.
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 places like Texas, violent criminals get shot by onlookers.
One method is a vicious cycle, the other is short and effective.
My questions is, why didn’t the onlooker come to help the tourist? What a pathetic human being.
