Do you know the identity of the abuser or his victims?
A black New York subway passenger was filmed hurling racist slurs at a white couple and their young son.
Haunting footage shows the terrified couple and their toddler sitting on the moving train as the man, standing in front of them wearing a black hat, headphones and holding a Target bag, is seen yelling at them for no apparent reason Monday.
The anonymous abuser’s abuse became increasingly unhinged despite his victims’ attempts to ignore them, and he ended up yelling in their faces while insulting his son.
‘Take’ them back to Europe you guys… gay gorilla… shut up… I don’t care about your ugly kids and your race… shut up… f *****g plastic body**. .. I don’t care about you… white monkey’, he spits as he gets a few inches closer.
The couple tries to separate when the mother is seen picking up her son and hugging him tightly while the attacker attacks: “I’m going to look younger than him when I’m my age.” Despite the vile abuse, the pair do a convincing job of ignoring it and continue to avoid looking at their assailant, even as the insults escalate.
The man is seen terrorizing the family as they rode the subway on Monday.
The terrified family tries to leave when the mother is seen picking up her son and holding him tightly as the assailant attacks: “I’m going to look younger than him when I’m my age.”
It is unclear where the train was headed, but no other passengers were verbally attacked as the man’s hate-filled tirade continued. ‘You’re a dog in this country, shut up… I’m a black American,’ he says as he raises his hand, ‘I’m over you.’
The attacker was not named and it is unclear if the couple filed a police report after the terrifying incident.
The clip was later shared on Twitter, with users claiming that the same man had previously been filmed abusing Asian passengers.
‘The subway and all forms of public transportation are no-go zones, this family learned the hard way.’
The post garnered nearly 421,000 views with many comments about race, segregation, guns and New York City safety.
‘That’s the same guy I saw on a video a few weeks ago harassing an Asian girl. Just a sick person,’ someone wrote.
Another recognized the menace: ‘Wait, I think he’s also the one throwing racial slurs at Asians and Hispanics. I guess black supremacy doesn’t even hide anymore lol.
Another added: ‘So much hate. If the races on this were reversed, would a hate crime have been committed?’
Under Mayor Eric Adams’ “subway safety plan,” more than 1,000 additional police officers were patrolling the transit system. The mayor is seen here in November with officers Taufique Bokth and Brunel Victor after they saved the life of a man who collapsed on the subway tracks.
The New York Police Department increased officer presence by approximately 1,200 additional officer shifts on overtime each day
Despite the disturbing encounter, crime in New York’s subways is on the decline, after the Big Apple’s new mayor, Eric Adams, took a common-sense approach.
Adams, a former police officer and centrist Democrat, flooded the net with NYPD officers and openly supported them, in stark contrast to his progressive predecessor Bill DeBlasio.
Metro drivers now make frequent announcements at stops to alert passengers to the presence of police on the platforms, should they need help.
Crime on the subway plummeted to levels not seen in decades, except during the height of the pandemic.
The New York Police Department announced March 8 that crime on the subway is down 21.5 percent from the same period last year, after Mayor Eric Adams ordered more police officers to patrol the subway system. underground transit.
In the first nine weeks of 2023 alone, authorities say, police handed out nearly 10,000 more citations than early last year.
All serious crime categories are now down, except for robberies, which are flat with two reported so far this year.
Those are the lowest levels of serious subway crime dating back to the start of the Compstat system of data collection in the mid-1990s, the New York Post reports, excluding the start of 2021 when the COVID pandemic hit.
