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.

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.
Those evil Amish, no doubt. Or maybe Morman’s...they are quite the gang.
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.”
BAN THE BATS & TIRE IRONS!!!
The look white to me. It’s possible they are Muslim, but they definitely aren’t black.
At least most of them aren’t, judging from the video.
Bloomberg’s mission ‘to reduce gun violence’ accomplished.
If the MA man fought back the gang of seven in self defense with a proper firearm, it won’t even make the news.
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.
Walmart and Autozone announced they will not be restocking baseball bats and tire irons pending legislative discussions.
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.
WalMart sells guns and ammo, and baseball bats, why use them?
My memory of Andover is that it is a well-to-do community. On Wikipedia, “According to a 2008 estimate, the median income for a household in the town was $114,319, and the median income for a family was $138,556.”
Well we know A-Rod wasn’t involved; he can’t hit anything after August.
THIS is why you need a high cap magazine.
