Another Subway Attack
Last night at around 8pm, a group of young thugs attacked a 23-year old woman inside the subway concourse at the 8th Street El stop. The woman was brutally beaten, taking kicks and punches to most of her body. Thankfully, she escpaed with her life.
Five young people were charged in the attack. I am confident that they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. They are disgusting human beings with no respect whatsoever.
Every day, it’s another story about someone being murdered, robbed, raped and disrespected. I am tired and sick of it. I am sick and tired of parents that do not get involved in their children’s lives, of teachers who cannot teach because a lack of positive role models in their students home lives, of our government that thinks a large sum of money will make problems disappear.
I don’t know what it is about this city – but it’s as if it breeds this kind of behavior. There is a breakdown in communication and positive influence. Be it parents, the govenment, guardians or schools – we need bring about a powerful change – and soon.
