Monk Slaps Man In Face Three Times On Thai Train

DailyMail: An expat slapped by a monk on a train in Thailand wants to put the incident behind him, saying he is ‘sabai’ (fine) about it, after video of the bizarre assault went viral. The video shows the English teacher being struck across the face by the Buddhist monk after an apparent misunderstanding over seats. The man, wearing a pink shirt and three quarter-length shorts, appears to speak with an Australian accent, claiming he was hit ‘three times’ by the monk. A police officer soon arrived and removed the monk from the carriage to end the incident, which took place on December 7 on a train traveling from Bangkok to Phitsanulok, according to the Bangkok Post. ‘Jeff’, as he was later named in a video statement posted to Facebook by his neighbor Noojeab Kuntao, said he was ‘sabai, sabai’ meaning he was fine. ‘To me sabai, sabi,’ he says. ‘Thailand is Thailand, I love living in Thailand.” I love Thailand very much. Many people supported me over the Internet. I appreciate it. Everything is OK,” said Jeff, who was described as a tourist in local reports. It later emerged that Jeff was attempting to solve a delicate situation on the train by offering his double seat to two women and sitting next to the monk himself. The Facebook user who posted the video on the internet, Pui Pupriew, wrote that after the monk took exception to his sitting down, Jeff said ‘Fine, fine’ in a bid to diffuse the situation. However, it seems the monk misinterpreted the words as ‘kwai, kwai’, a deeply offensive term in Thai slang meaning buffalo. ‘I gave the seats to the ladies, I sat next to the Thai monk, he wasn’t happy and I got slapped,’ Jeff says in his explanation. ‘Sabai, sabai, enough.’

And that’s why I don’t pretend to know other languages. One minute you’re trying to be nice by offering up your seat and the next you’re getting slapped by the most peaceful people on the planet because you fucked up and called him a buffalo. If I were this guy I would really spice his story up at the next poker night because getting slapped over that and taking it like a bitch is a great way to lose friends.

Chicago Tribune: Authorities are looking for three suspects who harassed a man on the CTA Blue Line in an incident captured on video. Two males appear to assault an older man on the train near the Racine stop in the video, which has been shared and viewed thousands of times since it was posted on Facebook on Wednesday. The victim did not file a report, but community leaders, enraged by the video, are calling for justice to be served, according to WGN-TV. Officer Jose Estrada, a Chicago police spokesman, said the Police Department is aware of the incident and is working with the CTA to investigate.

 

Assholes like these kids are everything that is wrong with America today. Picking on a senior citizen, filming it and then uploading it for a couple LIKES on Facebook is one of the dumbest things I’ve heard of since the ‘knockout game’. No doubt in my mind they will be caught and hopefully every single person who actually LIKED it on Facebook will have instant karma coming their way. The fuck is wrong with people??

Gothamist: An emotionally disturbed homeless person was taken into custody by police yesterday after he allegedly threatened to push people onto the subway tracks. The incident happened around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at the 6 train platform at the 110th Street Station near Lexington Avenue. Cops say the man made statements to a 22-year-old woman “threatening to throw her onto the tracks.” According to the Post, the man threatened several other people and “appeared to want to make good on his threats by actually lunging toward several people.” The man, who has not been identified by cops, was taken into custody soon after. No one was injured in the incident, and the homeless man was brought to Mount Sinai Hospital for a psych evaluation; no charges have been filed.

 

See, this is the scariest kind of stuff about using the subway. This guy has nothing to lose in life and is clearly insane. This happened a couple years back when a crazy woman threw a guy in front of a train. Hopefully this guy will be locked up in a psych ward forever!

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

2014_11_kdarden1

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!
