How horrible. Poor thing.

We had a similar-ish thing in the UK where a man ran up to a woman and pushed her in front of a bus. It was only because the driver swerved in time that she wasn’t killed.

In spite of being caught on camera, he was never caught. I hope they get this dickhead.

Yet another reason to institutionalize the mentally ill who refuse to take their meds.

Politley asking a person to apologize is no reason to shove them down an escalator, that fug motherfucker could have killed the woman. What would have happened if her hair got caught in the escalator steps? I don't even want to imagine. She could have been scalped!

Reagan is the bastard who gave the mentally ill a free pass. He allowed them to sign out of mental hospitals. Of course, the main reason for that, the ReThugs no longer wanted to pay the medical bills to keep these crazies off the streets.

The woman who was shoved was interviewed on the local news, she sounded Asian. The weirdo who shoved her is likely a racist who is blaming ALL Asians for Covid.

Lies. Mass shootings by whites are NEVER referred to as terrorism (and spare me the ideology crap because they never wait to find out why a non-white guy did it before they call it terrorism).

And January 6th was mostly referred to as "Insurrectionists" by MSM. It was under pressure by people who were so outraged by the glaring hypocrisy that they finally started with "domestic terrorism."

White guys had to literally storm the Capitol to finally be referred to as terrorists. But even the guy in the truck who said he had a bomb wasn't called a terrorist

R13 I completely loathe Reagan, who did contribute to the further decay of America, but I wouldn't go praising past mental hospitals before looking into how they really were. Of course Republicans never want to pay for anything, but this was more about not wanting to pay for improved facilities. I'm sure if they could've kept getting away with not addressing the abusive, low staffed, cesspools, they would've left them open.

I'm always horrified to see the yearning here to go back to those days. No regard for the people that were imprisoned at these places just for being uppity women, gay, an abused elder, severely disabled, etc. There were little rights in fighting the system if they wanted to keep you indefinitely.

The places were straight out of Hell. Though I agree there's a mental health crisis, and that we do need better ways of getting people help that won't do so of their own will, I'll never support going back to tge old system.

Please R37 R38, not all mental wards, or group homes for the mentally ill, are like Willowbrook. There has to be some way, especially in in today's world, to get these people off the streets. In NYC, they seem to be multiplying like rabbits!

There was a man who was recently going about his business in a Manhattan ATM, when some lunatic went into the bank lobby and assaulted him with an AXE! The man is lucky to be alive. These violent assaults have become an everyday occurrence in NYC, much like gun violence has across the entire US.

Most of these violent individuals are also homeless, while not all homeless are violent, a good majority of them are and they sure are not taking their meds.

You sound like a person who never had any sort of unprovoked encounter with a mentally disturbed person. Do you ride the subways and or buses in a large city? Or do you cab it everywhere.

Let's not forget, re Willowbrook, lots of rich people threw their mentally ill and retarded children into those hell holes. Some of the children weren't even mentally ill, they had cerebral palsy! WTF are you going on about, "being uppity women, gay, an abused elder", what era are you referring to? The early 1900s?

Many years ago, my father was punched in the face while heading home from work. He was his way to the 23rd Street subway to go home. It was broad daylight, the streets were crowded, it was around 4:30PM. He didn't say anything to, or even bump into, the lunatic who walked up to him, then punched him.

My father's eyeglasses went flying, he fell, then, hit his head on the sidewalk. The decent people who worked in a small shoe store saw what happened and ran out to help. They brought him into the store, then called the police. Of course, the lunatic was never caught. This violent mentally ill person probably went on to rape or murder someone.

By all means, let these crazies continue to run amok.

Get assaulted for absolutely NO reason, then, get back to me.

You keep your head down, don't make eye contact. Any contact (physical, eye contact) could be taken as "disrespecting" the person, who'll in turn commit physical violence against you, or at least scream at you.

R44, if 80% of attacks included eye contact and other interaction, and 20% didn’t, it still makes sense to avoid the 80% by avoiding eye contact and interaction. The remaining 20% could still happen, but at least you’re addressing the 80%.

Keep your heads down. Don’t make eye contact. Wear earbuds so you can pretend not to hear crazy people talking to you. You don’t even need to be listening to anything through the earbuds.

Again, you DL newbies are fucking CLUELESS! I laugh out loud when you come armed with your percentages and lame-ass statistics. There is always a first time for anything, especially in NYC.

NYC has always been somewhat dangerous and violent, just because some real estate assholes put up expensive housing on the Bklyn and Long Island City waterfronts, that won't change a damn thing. Violent criminals and crazy people are everywhere. There are no truly safe neighborhoods in NYC.

This past Sunday, around 12 noon, a 77 year old woman was recently robbed in Long island City.

It's stupid talking to anyone on the street today, because people are crazy. But telling someone to say excuse me when you have no way of telling if they actually did? Even dumber. She didn't deserve this, but she's still an idiot.

There isn't. The medical industry is about profit, and the mentally ill people you talk about aren't insured or going to be able to pay. That will lead once again to the government funding these places and Republicans will gut their funding, because it's not like prisons where they can turn the prisoners into sources of free labor. Lack of funds will mean lack of care and eventually decrepit and dangerous hospitals.

Which is why, even if it’s not my fault, I apologize in any sort of bodily collision. Don’t make eye contact, neutral expression, pull in all my vibes and throw on my shield of invisibility. I like to think that I’ve developed antennae for the restless antagonists, but sometimes they come out of nowhere. And sometimes you can’t get away from them. Sometimes you can’t do anything to prevent the random violence.

btw, the area where the 77 year old woman was robbed and assaulted last Sunday at 12 noon in Long Island City Queens, was literally ONE BLOCK away from a police precinct. Of course, typical of these situations, there are never cops around when people actually need them, but there were sure more than enough cops around to stop Eric Garner from selling loose cigarettes!

One odd thing about the clip showing the old woman getting robbed, it looked as if someone was filming the robbery and assault. The footage didn't look like a clip from a security camera.

The audacity of these thugs, some actually have someone film their crimes.

I'm a native Manhattanite and about as jaded as they come, but if I saw that I'd be running down the escalator, calling 911, and waiting with the injured person till the ambulance comes.

When I first moved to Boston a guy witnessed a man smacking his girlfriend. It was New Year's Eve 1983. He stepped in to stop the guy and the guy smacking his girlfriend said, "Oh, you want to be a hero" and stabbed him to death. It turned out the guy that was stabbed had just married a woman who had six kids. He must have been a nice guy to be willing to marry and support her and her litter of kids.

People (lots of them) have so much built-up anger before they even leave their homes and go outside. I'll include a couple members of my family. One stupid little thing is the straw that broke the camel's back -- anger spews forth on a stranger. It's not even culturally discouraged to have a hair-trigger temper. Some consider it: "standing up for my family," and other bullshit.

As I get older, I really value my ability to be patient a lot of the time. It's not worth it.
