If this was NY there would probably be a homeless guy laying across those reserved seats. The only subway etiquette people seem to sometimes abide by here is ‘keep your head down and mouth shut.’ And as I say that I realize that rarely happens too. Nevermind.

Gothamist: According to police, the below video was shot moments after the suspect, 20-year-old Donovan Lawson, attempted to fare-beat at the Myrtle Avenue-Broadway JMZ station yesterday just before 8 p.m. The nightstick-wielding officer apparently approached Lawson and asked to see his ID, a request that Lawson denied. The officer responded by attempting to cuff Lawson, which he resisted. Be warned that the action of this video is all contained within the first few seconds, and it’s not pleasant. Lawson was taken to Woodhull Hospital and treated for cuts to his head. He has been charged with fare beating, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing government administration. The officer was taken to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center and treated for injuries to his hand and arm. The incident is being investigated by the department’s Internal Affairs bureau.

 

All I can say is thank Christ that cop wasn’t white. Can you imagine that? There would be a march, riots, and a call for a public beheading. Here’s what I don’t get. The kid broke the law by jumping the turnstyle, got caught, and resisted arrest. End of story. I understand the NYPD doesn’t have the best track record but when I’m tussling with a person and I have a gun on my belt, I’m not taking the chance of him reaching for it and using it against me. You better believe I’m going to do whatever I have to to keep them from it.

Side note: How about this chick, huh? If I just walked up to the scene I would’ve thought she ate his face off

Man Arrested In Subway Pushing Murder

Gothamist: After an extensive manhunt, police apprehended the suspect in Sunday’s fatal subway shoving. Kevin Darden, 34, was caught yesterday near his mother’s house in the Bronx. And investigators believe he had also pushed a passenger in another violent incident earlier this month. The authorities believe that Darden is the man who threw Wai Kuen Kwok into an oncoming D train at the 167th Street station in the Bronx on Sunday morning. Kwok, 61, had been waiting for the southbound train with his wife so they could buy groceries and have lunch to celebrate her birthday in Chinatown. The train’s operator James Muriel said, “I see a body flying across the tracks. I knew that it wasn’t an ordinary jump on the tracks. The guy didn’t go straight down, he was actually in the air. I slammed the brakes when he was in the air. By the time I got to him he had just fallen onto the tracks, there was just nothing you can do. I need 300-400 feet to get a train to stop. It’s a 100-ton train.” Kwok was pronounced dead at the scene and Muriel added that Kwok’s wife cried in his arms. Surveillance video after the shoving showed Darden taking a Bx35 bus and getting off to go to a bodega, where he bought a loosie cigarette and smoked outside. A man who was pushed at the West 4th Street subway station saw the video and recognized him as his attacker. According to the Post, the West 4th Street victim is Asian like Kwok:

Darden… assaulted the first man because he dared to walk in front of him, the sources said. “I’m warning you!’’ Darden, 34, barked at the victim after shoving him to the ground at the West 4th Street station at around 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 6, the man told cops.Darden, who has more than 30 prior arrests, pushed him so hard that he suffered bruises to his hands and back and needed treatment at NYU Medical Center.

The victim, 51, came forward Tuesday after seeing a surveillance photo of Darden that cops released following the fatal shove of Wai Kuen Kwok, 61, in The Bronx Sunday, sources said. He told police he could pick Darden out of a lineup, which helped them get a warrant for his arrest, the sources said.

The Daily News adds, “A second victim also identified Darden as the man who robbed him inside a nearby Bronx subway station just 30 minutes before Kwok’s underground death.” Darden has been arrested dozens of times. In Texas, he was arrested in 2011 for trying to burn down his brother’s house and, on November 9th, he was arrested for trying to steal a tourist’s wallet outside the Times Square McDonald’s. The Post notes, “At his arraignment then, bail was set at $1,000, an amount the homeless man had no chance of posting. But after five days in jail, Darden appeared for a court hearing — where the supporting deposition wasn’t filed because the complaining witness left the country and couldn’t be reached, according to sources. The judge said he had no choice but to let Darden go without bail.” Darden’s mother Joyce Jones said he was mentally ill, “I’m glad they got him off the streets and I’m glad he’s not dead. I feel so, so sorry for those people and what happened. I know that won’t bring him back, but I am so, so sorry.”

 

 

Bronx Man Shoved In Front Of Oncoming NYC Subway Train

HuffPost: A man standing with his wife on a Bronx subway platform was pushed onto the tracks Sunday morning by another man and was struck and killed by an oncoming train, police said. The assailant fled. Police said an unidentified man pushed 61-year-old Wai Kuen Kwok of the Bronx off the platform at the Grand Concourse and East 167th Street station in the Highbridge neighborhood, an act that appeared to be unprovoked. Kwok was struck by a southbound D train at around 8:40 a.m. and pronounced dead at the scene; his death was classified a homicide. His wife was not injured. There was no indication that Kwok knew the man or had had an altercation with him before he was pushed, police said. Witnesses told police they believed the man fled the subway station after shoving Kwok and jumped on a city bus. Police later released video surveillance showing a man wearing a dark jacket getting off a city bus and walking into a store. The man emerges moments later smoking a cigarette and strolls away. Police said the man was wanted for questioning in connection with Kwok’s death. The victim’s son, Gary Kwok, 29, a doctoral student at Adelphi University, told The New York Times that his father was a “fine, regular family man.” There have been three other incidents in recent years that involved a person being pushed onto the tracks. In April 2013, a train ran over a man desperately clawing at a Manhattan subway platform after being pushed onto the tracks by a homeless suspect with whom he’d been arguing. In December 2012, another homeless man was arrested for pushing a Queens straphanger in front of a Times Square train that fatally crushed him. And later the same month, a mumbling woman pushed a man to his death in front of a subway train in Queens.

 

This is the shit that always scares me as a NYC commuter. You never know where and when it’s going to happen and who is going to do it. The only thing you can really do is not stand near the edge of the platform and keep an eye out for suspicious people (who, in my head, is basically everyone). Very unfortunate situation and hopefully this guy is caught soon before it happens again!

Just another reason why that ’10 hours of a girl walking around NYC’ is bullshit. This chick was wearing nothing but a painted g-string and only a couple people noticed. She even walked down a flight of stairs in Times Square right in front of a bunch of dudes and didn’t get a look. And how about the balls on this guy, huh?!

Holy smokes! Imagine working here? This place looks like a massive pawn shop with probably even weirder shit. Electric guitars, dildos, and even a drone! Here is a list of some other stuff they house there:

Gothamist: This weekend, four people were arrested after a violent, slappy brawl aboard an F train. The incident, which happened near the West Fourth Street station shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday, reached its nadir when a man in an 8-ball jacket loudly slapped a woman who had been yelling and hitting him, sparking a wild melee. Now, the charges against Jorge Pena, the 25-year-old 8-ball jacket wearer, have been dropped entirely. Initially, Pena was charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct in the incident. He spent four nights in jail after the fight, but his lawyer says charges were dropped after authorities ​determined he was acting in self-defense. “This time the system worked,” attorney Cary London told the Post. “Thank God for smartphones because the DA’s office was able to have all of the information in front of them at an early stage to show that our client did nothing wrong and acted in self-defense.” London says that allegedly drunk straphanger Danay Howard had been making fun of Pena’s jacket and his slight speech impediment when she started hitting him in the face with her 6-inch stiletto. “He’s not an aggressive guy. He’s like Andre the Giant,” London said about his client, adding that he plans to press charges against Campbell this week. Howard, 21, has been charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct. Kevin Gil, 21, was also charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct, and Shanuique Campbell, a 21-year-old female, was charged with felony assault and disorderly conduct.

 

Whoa! I had no idea this guy had to spend 4 days in jail. Guess that’s the price you pay these days for getting bullied and hit in the head with 6 inch heels. The moral of the story here is that you don’t take the subway at 5am EVER. And that attorney is right, thank God for smartphones or else this guy probably would’ve been spending a lot more than 4 days in jail. Free at last, free at last, thank God you’re free at last!

 

 

Yet More Drama On A Packed NYC Subway Train

To quickly sum this up, the Jamaican woman reaches out to hold onto the pole once the train moves. Her hand gets really close to a pregnant woman who has her face by the pole. Her man defends her and all hell breaks loose.

Couple things here–I get that your chick is preggos but if you’re THAT worried then don’t get on a subway train packed to the doors and don’t start a fight next to her. The only people I feel bad for are those who were on this section of the train. Throw the earphones in and look down!

Side note: How awkward was that silence afterwards? Almost like nothing ever happened.
