    Well, it's dartboard time. ...sigh...: See you all later...Have a good time today. I suspect I'll be wishing I was here, believe me!
    Why, thanks. It's hard to dismiss the quest for perfection. I'd throw the dart out the window. If you're going to use the Congressional Method, remember that the only thing on the target is gun control. I'd take the precise target configuration under advisement before casting any darts or aspersions. You could hit the wrong thing, and have to start over. In that case, beer will be required.

    Someone was taking photos. I'm willing to bet their ears were working as well.

    "What we have is a failure to communicate."

    But the failure would be on the part of the angry mod, not on local law enforcement. According to the article, the 17 year old Stephan Stowe was in the wrong for simply being stupid, arrogant and cocky. He started things off well enough (though you get the sense he was merely taunting his would-be Jewish victim) by greeting him in a tradition Muslim custom by uttering the phrase, "Assalamu Alaikum," meaning "peace be with you". Nothing wrong with that...if you truly mean it. Apparently, young Stowe did not. For why would he then get angry and aggressive with the Jewish man he was speaking to if he truly sought "peace" with his "cousin" (towhich I believe Stowe was eluding to the premise that we're all connected as part of humanity)? The moment Stowe took the man's personal property away from him - his cell phone - AND communicated a threat, "I'm going to kill you right now," - he lost any and all credibility. He sealed his fate at that point.

    As for the mob that was building up once the train stopped at the next station drop, the crowd was in the wrong especially the "young lady". Why? Because those in the immediate vicinity, particularly the young Black female, continued to spur the crowd to anger by continually antagonizing the cops. Notice from the video at the bottom of the article that the cops initially tried to push their suspect to the back of the train away from the mod that was building at the train's exit doors. Once the citizen who was doing the filming moved inside the train you could see the clear and present danger the TWO cops faced against a angry crowed of countless civilians. All led by one young Black female who insisted on being part of the action believing she was defending a helpless Black male teenager. Her mistake (assuming she was present to witness what transpired between the Black male and the Jewish man) was that she completely forgot OR conveniently ignored the wrong the Black teen committed in the first place - he took another man's property without his permission (theaft) and verbally assaulted an innocent passenger on a public commuter train. Case closed!

    IMO, the cops did the right thing. They were lucky the crowd didn't get out of hand especially once they arrested the young lady.

    SEE IT: Wild Brooklyn melee erupts as NYPD arrests Muslim teen for allegedly taunting Jewish subway rider - NY Daily News

    mr stowe was charged with a hate crime
    I think "hate crimes" are illogical and a clear First Amendment violation, but since the law is in place good - charge him.

    Jews, Christians and whites have been degraded to a point that it's almost a social norm..

    If it matters I'm a brown Christian Sicilian so I don't get "the business" based on aesthetics but I have seen discrimination happen many times against whites, Jews and Christians...

Hawkins and three friends were attacked by a crowd of 10 to 30 white youths, with at least seven of them wielding baseball bats. One, armed with a handgun, shot Hawkins twice in the chest, killing him.[1][2]
    Hawkins had gone to Bensonhurst that night with three friends to inquire about a used 1982 Pontiac automobile that was for sale. The group's attackers had been lying in wait for black or Hispanic youths they believed were coming to fight for a Latino girl neighbor one of the attackers was dating. She was yelling from a window that 'My Black friends are coming to kick your asses". Hawkins and his friends walked onto block at that time. Police later said Hawkins was not involved with the girl.[1]
    Hawkins' death was the third killing of a black man by white mobs in New York City during the 1980s; the other two victims were Willie Turks, who was killed on June 22, 1982 in Brooklyn, and Michael Griffith, who was killed in Queens on December 20, 1986. The incident uncorked a torrent of racial tension in and around New York City in the ensuing days and weeks, culminating in a protest march through the neighborhood led by the Reverend Al Sharpton.

    Are you referring to the white man mentioned in the 5th paragraph that starts, "Later, in the Fort Green section of Brooklyn..." who was attacked but refused medical treatment?

    Sorry you got caught up in the BS, man. But I'm glad you lived (and apparently are in good health) to tell the tale.

    So you know how savage this world is....

    Progressives condone this whole mob action savagery..... Collectivism is to blame.

    I've been mobbed before, I have 40 stitches in my head as a reminder (thankfully the scar is hardly noticeable now) considering I could see my own white (that was the color) skull clear as day.

    Could you tie it together for me a little better? Was there "hate speech" legislation on the books at the time? Did people dismiss the attack at that time? Seems not, seeing as the race baiting Sharpton got involved...Hmmm, but never let it be said that he wasted a moment to get in front of the camera...
