NYC: 65 Y.O. Asian woman kicked to ground and stomped, doorman does nothing.

A man kicked a 65-year-old woman to the ground in broad daylight on a Midtown Manhattan sidewalk on Monday, stomped on her several times and made anti-Asian remarks in what the police called another targeted hate crime.

The police said the attack happened around 11:40 a.m. outside an apartment building at 360 W. 43rd St., where a surveillance video showed an unidentified man kick the woman in the torso after the two approached each other on the sidewalk.

The attacker, whom the police department’s hate crimes task force asked for the public’s help in identifying, stomped on the woman’s upper body and head at least three times after she fell to the ground.

The victim was hospitalized at NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan with what the police described as serious injuries. Further information about her condition was not immediately available.

The Manhattan attack is the latest in a yearlong surge of anti-Asian violence seen across the country and in New York City. The growing list of assaults also come as people mourn the recent shooting in the Atlanta area earlier this month that left eight people dead, including six women of Asian descent.

The video, which was released by the police and drew widespread attention online, showed a man who appeared to be a building worker standing in the lobby, unwilling to intervene. He then closed the building’s front door while the woman was lying on the ground after the attacker walked off.

The Brodsky Organization, the management company for the luxury apartment building, released a statement early Tuesday that said the staff members who witnessed the attack “have been suspended pending an investigation in conjunction with their union,” and that it was trying to identify a delivery vendor who was in the lobby.

After the release of the video, the company was widely criticized online over its workers’ failure to intervene.

“The Brodsky Organization condemns all forms of discrimination, racism, xenophobia and violence against the Asian-American community,” the company said in its statement.

The hate definitely needs to stop Period. But I want to say this. Asians put they're businesses in black neighborhoods and gauge prices in low income poor neighborhoods to get rich off of poor POC and they do that shit on purpose.

Asians are not innocent by no stretch of the imagination at all. They've done underhanded shit in minority neighborhoods for decades and have gotten away with it. All of the shit we see happening isn't coming from no where, there's a decades long history of bas blood between blacks and Asians that people are starting to talk about.

I've been seeing a lot of Asians talk about anto black racism within their own communities and just how real it really is. There are long standing issues between the two groups a lot of people won't deny.

The Jews did the same last century in the same neighborhoods. They're just building businesses, offering products and services: no one has to patronize them. Consumers as individuals choose to do so. Pricing is determined by what the market will accept. A business isn't a fucking charity.

What kind of underhanded shit? I can think of one act of violence by an Asian against a black person, and it was tragic but it was singular.

Everyone is racist, you disingenuous fuck. The question is who's committing violent acts on the basis of that racism. Watching a black kid in your store or saying "You looking, you buy!" isn't violence—it's a microaggression, and those don't by any stretch of the imagination outweigh actual violence. "She was disrespecting me—she looked at me the wrong way" doesn't even justify a shove. Well, among rational adults with normal IQs.

The violence is overwhelmingly one way. It just needs to stop with policing, prosecution, and prison.

by Anonymousreply 5103/30/2021

No one deserves to be randomly attacked for no reason walking down a street, because of some long-seeded racial tension. These are LIVES, they are human beings and deserve intervention when violence happens. It's not ok to blame any one ethnic group or groups for your problems. Be a human, say something, call 911. It's not ok to stand idly by when you see someone being beaten to probable death.

R50, you're Black, aren't you? Only Black people care whether Asian people "think they're white". Only Black people keep repeating "White people are going keep you in your place—Asians think highly of themselves, but White people will never accept or respect them."

Only Black people care so desperately what White people think, and whether White people respect them or another group. Because they see white people as Daddy, and they can't stand that Daddy doesn't love them or respect them. Asians don't give a fuck.

No Asian thinks he/she is white. They just like white people. JFC, you dense fucks.

by Anonymousreply 5303/30/2021

R45 what a bunch of racist gibberish that started with lip service to anti racism but followed by justification for violence against Asians. Asian immigrants have stores in black neighborhoods because it’s cheaper to do business there. The immigrants who do that aren’t exactly rolling in $$$ or top scholars in their native countries. Fact is, no one wants to do business in black neighborhoods not even chain stores because there’s too much risk involved, including financial (theft, robbery) and human costs (employees injured during crimes). So it’s a symbiotic relationship between these Asian merchants and people from the communities which they serve.

Using your own logic, I can also make a case for Asian store owners justifying racism against black people. They’re openly called racist names by black people, they get robbed by black people, see shoplifting by black people, violently attacked by black people, on tv/ newspapers see crime stories including murders and gang killings committed by black people. Their kids in inner city schools also get racist epithets thrown at them by black kids. And you’re saying this is all Asians making much ado about nothing? That they can’t form prejudices based upon their own experience? That they’re responsible for black racism or violent attacks by black people.

R50 you need to go get retraining to get back your human card. You say you don’t condone violence against Asians but then go on to provide excuses for them being assaulted and killed. They’re part of the problem and not blameless nor helpless. You sound like you’d belong in the committee to round up Jews during height of Hitler’s reign in Germany. What you’re basically doing is assigning bad traits to Asians as moral justifications and excuses for violence committed against them.

As an extra layer of justification, you added that Asians think they’re white. No they don’t. Also what if some think like white people, so the fuck what? Care to qualify what “think like white people” means? Define it and define how Asians think like white people. You sound like that racist cunt Alison Collins, VP of SF School Board, who saw nothing wrong with saying Asians are house “n*****s who actively participate in white supremacy” because they use education and hard work to succeed.

Simple Fact - Part 2:

Asians HATE Blacks

It's both sad and hilarious that while drawing attention to anti-Asian violence, people can't resist implying blacks are violent, lazy, worthless, blah, blah, blah. Even

I have noticed that while highlighting the reasons Asians open businesses in black neighborhoods, some posters only focus on how cheap it is. That says so, so much. Asians don't care about contributing to the community, making a customer feel special for a moment, or providing opportunities to young people. Nope, it all comes down to $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

I live in a gentrified neighborhood where young, mostly white people, are opening businesses. Even if they want to make money, all they can talk about is their excitement about being a part of the community, and they're always quick to recognize repeat customers.

Asians don't give a shit.

Imagine an English speaking American moving to Japan and opening a shop; it’s likely that you, as the shop proprietor, will come off awkwardly/rudely in your unfamiliarity with the language and manners of your new society.

I would like for someone to clarify what people mean by “Asians act white.” I hope they aren’t referring to their work ethic as to school. That would terribly sad and also untrue. Asians don’t just work hard in US schools due to white influence. They work hard in schools in their own countries. Hard work doesn’t belong to one group. Anyone can work hard in school and do well.

R60 there’s an acceptance of criminality in black culture. 30% of black men had/ have felony convictions, that’s more than percentage of black men with bachelor’s degree or higher. It wasn’t always like this, unresolved racism resulting from slavery and social welfare programs displacing black family unit did a lot to fuck black people over. But black people must also take responsibility for what is wrong with culture today. Blaming others and society for personal actions, acceptance of criminality as part of life, paying lip service to empowerment but bemoaning they can’t do it without $$$/ resources/ preferential treatment.

Perfect example is that Virginia Beach shooting yesterday. Now NAACP is calling for protests and investigations into police actions. Why not call out the dumbfuck partiers who caused violence in the first place by firing into the crowd, thereby inviting the cops to go out there? No accountability only blame.

East Asian immigrant business owners are hostile to everyone. It's their kids who are enculturated enough to be warm and friendly like Americans expect.

I saw an anecdote from a black professor on Twitter recently that he once polled his black and white students about how many incidents of rudeness they experienced in a week. The average was four for both white and black students, but the black students attributed half to racism. Someone being rude isn't racism unless you know they're treating someone of a different race better.

Regardless of where Asian immigrants set up their businesses, the fact is many in the black community hate them for being successful. It's the same reason anti-Semitism is common in the black community despite Jews being strong supporters of civil rights historically (and presently).

And no one can tell me that members of the black underclass going ultraviolent lately isn't due to the events, and propaganda, of the past year. The two biggest factors are loss of respect and fear of police and the establishment officially claiming that ALL black people's problems are due to racism.

Man Arrested in Anti-Asian Attack Was on Parole for Killing Mother

Brandon Elliot, who killed his mother two decades ago, was arrested early Wednesday and charged with the brutal assault on a Filipino woman near Times Square.

By Michael Gold

March 31, 2021, 11:04 a.m. ET

A homeless man who was out on parole for killing his mother was arrested and charged with a hate crime early Wednesday morning in connection with a violent attack on a Filipino immigrant near Times Square, the police said.

The man, Brandon Elliot, 38, was living at a hotel in Midtown Manhattan that has been serving as a homeless shelter, the police said. He was charged with felony assault as a hate crime, attempted assault as a hate crime and separate assault and attempted assault charges.

The police said that Mr. Elliot was the man seen on security footage brutally assaulting Vilma Kari, 65, who was walking down a city street on Monday morning.

The video shows a man police believe to be Mr. Elliot kicking Ms. Kari in the chest outside a luxury apartment building. After she staggers back and collapses onto the sidewalk, he then kicks her repeatedly in the head. A police official said that he then shouted an obscenity at her and said “You don’t belong here.”

Several workers in the building’s lobby were shown in the video appearing to do nothing to intervene, with one man, a security guard, closing the front door to the building after the attack.

The horrifying footage spread widely across social media and in news reports, intensifying the outrage and fear caused by an increasing number of reports of anti-Asian hate crimes across the nation in recent weeks.

Mr. Elliot was convicted of second-degree murder after fatally stabbing his mother, Bridget Johnson, three times in the heart in the Bronx in 2002, when he was 19, according to state records and news reports.

He was sentenced to a minimum of 15 years to life in prison and was released on parole in November 2019, after he had served 16 years, according to state corrections records.

Officers arrested Mr. Elliot on the Lower East Side early Wednesday morning, the police said. It was not immediately clear whether he had a lawyer representing him.

Anti-Asian bias crimes have risen sharply during the pandemic, according to police departments across the country. Many of them have been triggered by people falsely blaming Asian-Americans for spreading the coronavirus.

So far this year, the New York Police Department has investigated 33 anti-Asian attacks as hate crimes, exceeding the 28 it investigated in all of last year. Many of the victims in these cases have been middle-aged men and women who were alone on public transit or, like Ms. Kari, on city streets.

Given the public nature of these attacks, the actions — or inaction — of bystanders have come under particular scrutiny. In the attack on Ms. Kari, the seeming indifference of the employees who worked at the luxury building, at 360 West 43rd Street, drew particular outrage.

The building’s management company, the Brodsky Organization, said that the employees who witnessed the attack had been suspended pending an investigation.

Kyle Bragg, the president of 32BJ SEIU, the union representing staff members, issued a statement saying the door staff had immediately called for help, urging the public “to avoid a rush to judgment” until that investigation had concluded.

On Wednesday morning, a group of tenants of the building issued a statement of support for those employees, saying that the security footage distributed by the Police Department was shortened in a way that did not show the full extent of the staff’s response.

“Upon review of the FULL video-recorded incident, we do not believe the 360 West doormen staff have failed us as residents, our Midtown Manhattan community, nor our fellow AAPI New Yorkers,” the statement said.

Ms. Kari and her family could not immediately be reached for comment on Wednesday morning. She was discharged from N.Y.U. Langone Hospital Tuesday evening, hospital officials said.

Elliot was staying at the Four Points by Sheraton, a converted city-run homeless shelter on West 40th Street, when he attacked the victim, VIlma Kari, unprovoked.

Some 300 homeless men were recently moved to the Sheraton hotel shelter from one at a former DoubleTree Hotel on West 36th Street following complaints from Hell’s Kitchen residents of drug use and fighting, Patch reported in January.

R190----

On Tuesday, the victim’s daughter’s boyfriend told The Post that her attacker “locked eyes” with her — then beat her so mercilessly that “she wasn’t there” after the first blow.

“She said he was walking towards her and he locked eyes with her,” said the woman’s daughter’s boyfriend, who gave his first name, Luca. “She tried to avoid him, like how people do when you walk in New York City, but he came right for her. After the first hit, she wasn’t even there. I can’t see how she got up from that.”

The victim was rushed to NYU Langone Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition, authorities said.

Elliot was being held at a Midtown police precinct pending his arraignment.

by Anonymousreply 19203/31/2021

In April 2002, Elliot was charged with murder for using a kitchen knife to stab his mother, Bridget Johnson in the chest three times in their East 224th Street home in the Bronx, according to previous reports.

The deadly attack took place in front of Elliot’s 5-year-old sister, sources told The Post. It’s unclear what led to the slaying.

Johnson, 42, died a couple of days later.

Elliot was convicted of murder and sentenced to 15 years-to-life in prison.

He was denied parole twice — first at a February 2017 hearing and again in December 2018, according to a state Department of Corrections official.

But the following year, he was approved for release in September and sprung on lifetime parole two months later.

A spokeswoman for the Bronx District Attorney’s Office said Elliot pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in March 2002 but did not immediately have other details on the case.

Elliot’s rap sheet also includes an arrest for allegedly robbing his mother in July 2000, sources said. The pair had gotten into a squabble over money — when he allegedly yanked jewelry from her neck and choked her, the sources added.

Exclusive: New Data Shows Midtown Has Most 'Homeless Hotels' in City

NY1 has exclusively obtained a breakdown of where those hotels are by community district, showing Midtown has received far more of these so-called “COVID Hotels” than any other area of the city.

There are seven hotels-turned-shelters in community district 4 in Manhattan, which covers the Garment District and Hell’s Kitchen. That is where Sterling is staying.

Across Eighth Avenue in community district 5, which covers most of Midtown, there are now 12 hotels housing the homeless — more than any other area in the city.

For weeks, residents on the Upper West Side have complained of hotels in their neighborhood housing the homeless. That area now has four hotels — far less than Midtown.

Long Island City in Queens has also seen an influx of this type of temporary shelter as well. Community district 1 in Queens now has seven.

But the concentration of these facilities in Manhattan, especially in Midtown and Hell’s Kitchen, is starting to draw attention and concern.

It doesn’t matter if an innocent person gets beaten to death outside the building, as long as the doormen don’t invite slightest chance of scuffle outside to the building, that’s what they care about.

I think I would close the doors, too. What if the guy had come in on them? They're not responsible for street crimes- that's the police's job.

R211 if that’s how you really would feel and act then you’re in need of relearning your humanity, if you’d ever possessed it in the first place. You’d have to be pretty fucked up to shut the doors on someone who is injured and needed immediate help. Not even ask or check on the person but shut the door? Fuck this world and fuck New Yorkers who have become so hardened to decency.

It’s not like those two security guards couldn’t handle that one kook. He wasn’t carrying an AR-15, he was just using his hands and feet. They easily could have carried the woman inside to safety.

The doormen I know in Manhattan all would have at least done that. Yes, really.

It is NYC's constant proclamation of moral supremacy, which is clearly a thin veneer over the soulessness and basic barbarity of the city and its residents that gives NYC its unique charm.

Republican congresswomen revoke endorsements of Texas GOP candidate after 'hurtful and untrue' comments about Chinese immigrants

[quote] "As the first Korean American Republican women to serve in Congress, we want to empower and lift up fellow members of the (Asian American and Pacific Islander) community who want to serve their communities," California Reps. Young Kim and Michelle Steel said in a statement. "We talked with Sery Kim yesterday about her hurtful and untrue comments about Chinese immigrants, and made clear that her comments were unacceptable."

[quote] During a candidate forum on Wednesday hosted by two Republican groups in Texas' 6th Congressional District, Kim responded to a question about the US' immigration crisis by saying "I don't want them here at all," referring to potential Chinese immigrants.

[quote] "They steal our intellectual property, they give us coronavirus, they don't hold themselves accountable," she continued, adding that, "I can say that because I'm Korean."

[quote] The congresswomen said in their statement Friday that they "urged her to apologize and clarify her remarks, especially as hate against the AAPI community is on the rise."

[quote] "However, she has not publicly shown remorse, and her words were contrary to what we stand for," they added. "We cannot in good conscience continue to support her candidacy. We will continue to speak out in support of our AAPI community."

Another piece in the Times today. They're saying the attackers are typically homeless and mentally ill. Sure.

R218- The NYT article should have said that the attackers are usually ANTI-ASIAN.

by Anonymousreply 21904/06/2021

R219, or that they're usually, overwhelmingly, people certain backgrounds and not others. But god forbid anyone do that.

by Anonymousreply 22004/06/2021

People blame Trump for a lot of the anti Asian hate, so why then are most of the attackers black? Are there that many African American Trumpees??

by Anonymousreply 22104/06/2021

R221, it's the dirty secret of the whole thing. The media don't want to highlight that fact because it conflicts with the "certain people are innocent victims of state violence and institutional racism and never do anything wrong" theme.

No one is required to come to your defense in NYC.

Is he supposed to put his own life at risk?

[quote]R28 The NY Times left out that info - about people helping. Intentionally.

They also left out that Kitty Genovese was a lesbian living with her partner, Mary Ann Zielonko.

R223, the psycho had already left the scene. He wouldn't have been coming to her defense: she'd already been attacked.

A tiny 65-year-old woman stomped and kicked repeatedly by a huge man, and it's ok not to help her AFTER the attack? At least bring her inside or give her water or something as the ambulance comes?

Sociopathy isn't a protected class. It's fine to fire them. The union seems not to have objected.

R224, the Times left out a lot of shit from the Kitty Genovese story. They made up the whole "no one bothered to help as she screamed" thing.

Wrong, R222. If anything you're victim mentality is a much more prevalent media narrative than what you are claiming.

(Reference five years of NYTimes interviews with the "forgotten red state diner patron" for specific examples)

[quote] People blame Trump for a lot of the anti Asian hate, so why then are most of the attackers black? Are there that many African American Trumpees??

1) There are some Black Trumpees but not nearly as many as they tell you there are. And one of the reasons why they (and other minorities) are drawn to him is the same answer to your other question...

2) Angry people punch down. After generations of being asked to play nice and work at getting along, someone has come along and given permission to hate THOSE people. Most violence of every type occurs because of proximity. Therefore the bodega owner, the food place, the nail salon, etc. are going to be the targets when finally an authority figure allows it to happen.

In this case, a homeless man with severe mental illness had internalized the permission to hurt a type of people who he knew attend a church on that block and he is lacking the wherewithal to realize how wrong it is.

Are you sure? I remember Hannah and her friends went to see this play on Girls and they went room to room and interacted with all the witnesses who didn’t do anything.

R232, one of the geniuses running for office has proposed that as part of the “Defund the Police” masterpiece, regular citizens should receive “bystander training” so they can step in during situations like this. HAHAHHA.

People don’t intervene because they’re afraid of getting maimed or killed, NOT because they’re afraid of getting shied.

I want to see what happens to the perpetrator. I'm thinking 2 years max in a mental hospital, with release upon his promising to take his meds, Canada-style.
