Shocking.

What a disgusting act. Any assault is, but it takes a special kind of scum to attack a disabled person.

It's always Avenue D, for Death, Depravity, aand Destruction. How much sicker can Avenue D get? The news report says that the three perpetrators had come out of a nearby chicken restaurant. Imagine that, chickens eating chickens.

Ave D is a bad area, and being out at 1:30am raises the odds of an assault.

How 'bout two beat cops patrolling Avenue D (a cop on both sides) plus a police cruiser?

That precinct (PSA 4) is strictly for residents of public housing. The assault described in this article happened in the jurisdiction of the 9th Precinct, located on 5th street.

Also a friendly reminder: ALL CAPS is the equivalent of SHOUTING.

It's amusing how some folks think these animals give a shit about a "beat cop" being in close proximity to their dirty deeds. These criminals shoot people across the street from the manned police tower.
