NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) It came out of nowhere.
A man allegedly went on a rampage in Union Square on Wednesday afternoon and left a complete stranger brain-dead in the process.
Police said that the attack may have been a hate crime.
Friends of Jeffrey Babbitt, 62, were shocked to hear about the random act of violence that left the gentle, retired train conductor in a coma, CBS 2′s Dave Carlin reported on Friday.
I dont believe that. I dont know why that happened. He is very nice, Igor Sapozhnikov said.
Babbitt was minding his own business as he walked through the crowd near the chess boards in Union Square when a man made a hateful announcement and began his rampage, witnesses said.
He said the next white person who walks by Im going to [expletive], one woman said. His fist went in and the mans head bobbed and he hit the ground and you could hear his skull hitting the ground.
The man continued his rampage before demanding to see police officers.
He stood there and hit two more people and asked for the police to come, Michael Benson said.
Stunned witnesses counted a total of three people attacked. The suspect, Lashawn Marten, 31, remained at the scene until police arrived.
Babbitt was on the ground with blood flowing from his head. Nearby were two other victims icing their faces.

Those ornery Amish are at it again.
Has Bloomberg banned fists yet?
Has the Racist in Chief made a statement yet?
White man brain dead after black racist who was born brain dead attacks him. Department of Justice silent.
"May" which means it's not a hate crime because a son of Obama did it even though he said the next white person who walks by Im going to [expletive],
Don't be a victim.
Don’t tell me: His momma Nyshawn who was born in New York gave birth to him in LA so therefore he is Lashawn.
That is my carry knife when I cannot CC my Taurus....
And mine as well. Love it!
Hell, I feel naked without it.
I think those are illegal as well now in the fascist city of New York. They use to have a law that you could have a knife as long as it wasn’t over 6” then they changed it to 4” so break out those rulers.
Yeah having a knife of over 4” is illegal. You see, despot Bloomberg wants the advantage given to the crooks. If you have a knife over 4” you might hurt the crook who has a 2 foot long machete.
>>The suspect, Lashawn Marten, 31, remained at the scene until police arrived.
“You can’t arrest me! That would be racist!”
There is no defense against a crazy person who spontaneously attacks and kills you with one strike:
His fist went in and the mans head bobbed and he hit the ground and you could hear his skull hitting the ground.
Nothing can protect against that... except maintaining safe distance. Hard to do that in a large city. Avoid them.
Ridiculous. I read the law referenced. Once again the statists focus on an inanimate object, ignoring the criminal mind. As if an object has motive or intent. Bunch of fools. I wouldn’t live there and wish they’d stop fleeing to Texas. No offense intended to Yankees, of course.
Headline “Random Rampage” is wrong.
He said the next white person who walks by Im going to [expletive], makes it anything BUT random.
Sure no guarantee of a defense in this instance, I’m sure it was a speedy brutal attack but, that thug would have been on my radar, especially these days.
Police said that the attack may have been a hate crime.
Naw, really? I can't possible see why.
You don’t understand NY. They flip out about knives too. Hell, if you have a SCREWDRIVER, it better be because you need it at work, AND you are in transit to or from your job. I am not kidding.
This could have been avoided with careful placement of a 50 cent .45 ACP in Lashawn’s brain housing group.
Except this is NY City.
The Sheeple aren’t permitted to own the tools of self defense.
Exactly. Sometimes having a gun just won’t make a difference once way or the other.
Same here. I have a 360 radar as i travel even in the Philippines, HK, Asia etc, even here in the downtown core. Come sundown, it ain’t good if you’re not a homey. That’s why a lot of white girls who live in the dt lofts have big dogs as pets.
Now we have black thugs saying that they are going to attack whites, then attacking whites, then telling the police that they attacked them because they hate whites, and the NY Commissioner trying to determine if it was a hate crime.
Yet another white man dies to provide amusement for a Negro. Oh well, such things often happen between a conquering people and the conquered. As the Gaul said to the Roman; “Woe to the conquered!”
When you scream out “I hate white people” and try to kill someone.... it MIGHT be a hate crime?
It is called “situational awareness”. I practice it all the time. Keep your head moving to detect anything out of place or people acting or sounding abnormal. Body language screams when you are looking for it.
“My baby ain’t done never hurt nobody.”
You might want to run that statement by Eric the Corrupt ... I think he has different criteria for “his people”.
what is the model number. I can’t find on the S&W website
Amazon.com has these and more. Protip: If you acquire one or more and keep in your front pocket, mind the safety lock as it is spring assisted. Very important.
Totally RANDOM to me....
More blacks killing white people.
Yes, he was sucker punched. One thing you must always be in NYC is completely alive to the tips of your toes for wild animals. You cannot let your guard down. Even then, you might still be set up for prey. I was never mugged in the 27 years I lived there. Luck combined with great awareness. I always kept an eye out one block ahead of me.
Soon as I see “RANDOM’ I need read no further.
Problem with a lot of these crimes is they are “ambush”
type events. The “Obama’s boy” that commits the crime
does virtually nothing to indicate they are a threat to
you until your back is turned and they hit you.....and they
hit you as hard as possible with the express intent of
knocking you out instantly. Even if you are armed with
a gun there is no way to respond to this type of attack if
it is initiated successfully. The only option a rational
white person has is to maintain FULL awareness and not allow
a black person to come within 15-20 feet. Ambush attacks such as these are impossible to predict, difficult to prepare for and defending against them requires both situational awareness and to an extent luck. The best bet is NEVER travel alone and unarmed.
These events are making a case for widespread civil disobedience in support of the Constitutional right to defend oneself in the 2nd Amendment.
