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.”

 

 

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.

 

 

 

DailyNews: Keep your hands — and opinion — to yourself on the subway. What began as a young woman taunting a man on the F train devolved into a wild subway brawl when he turned around and slapped the girl in an incident that was caught on video. The blow knocked the woman back five feet as another man jumped in and exchanged punches with the attacker, according to the undated viral footage, which was uploaded to YouTube on Saturday and already has more than 600,000 views. The NYPD said it is looking into the incident on the Washington Square station-bound F train, but didn’t have details. The video “Man smacks the soul out of girl on the NY Subway” shows a young woman with two female friends egging her on while she verbally abused the lanky man, wearing a leather 8 ball jacket and fur hat. She can be heard insulting his style sense as he nodded and smiled. Eventually, the man filming the incident caught the girl’s attention. She jumped up from her seat and knocked the phone from his hands twice. Then the woman continued to verbally abuse the tall man in the hat.

 

Look, I’m NEVER for a woman getting hit but a man can only take so much when a chick is hitting you in the face with a nine inch heel. How about that slap though?! My Lord!

Side note: Just remember, domestic violence is not cool–because the NFL says so!

Nevermind the fact that no one else was dressed up on the train he was on–who wears a Teletubbie costume other than Michael Jackson on Neverland Ranch?

 

 

Plain Clothes Cop Kicks NYPD Officer In Head During Arrest

Gothamist: A plainclothes NYPD officer kicked a uniformed officer in the head during a rough arrest in a Coney Island subway station earlier this year. The misguided kick is so forceful you can actually hear it above the cacophony erupting from the arrest. After realizing he kicked a fellow officer, the unidentified cop kindly rubs his colleague’s head, then punches the suspect in the face. Because if you kick and punch enough people at random you’ll probably hit your intended target eventually. That’s just statistics. DNAinfo reports that officer McKickacoppy was stripped of his gun and badge after the video surfaced. After his arrest, the suspect “pleaded guilty to a reduced charge and his case has been sealed.” And if you’re still trying to come up with a Halloween costume, Rockette Cop is all yours.

 

Gotta love the ‘kick someone in the head and ask questions later’ mentality here. Only cost the guy his job. I especially love the hammer fist to the guy’s head while facing the cameraman. I usually try to side with the cops but when you’ve got 7 of them on one guy, not only is this excessive but unnecessary.

NYC Pimp Gets Jumped By Two Guys On Subway

This is just the repercussions of being a real life pimp in New York City. You can’t pass up a business opportunity and you certainly can’t back down in front of one of your hoes. Just a day in the life I suppose.

Side Note: How about the guy in the blue shirt who immediately regretted trying to break this thing up?!

Gothamist: No matter how many times we have to beg, straphangers seem to insist on bringing their snakes on the subway. This week’s subterranean serpent story comes courtesy of one C train rider, who spotted a man with not one, but two snakes at around 11 p.m. last night. TWO SNAKES. Of course, the seasoned subway rider sitting next to our fair snake charmer seems completely nonplussed, even in the midst of what appears to be an intimate moment between Man and Snake. Eric Hertzog, who snapped the above photos, tells us the photo was taken on a northbound C train, and that the snake owner disembarked at 14th Street. “The guy was sitting there with a girl (don’t know what their relationship was) and at first he had a smaller snake just hanging from the railing while another snake was in between his legs. He then took the smaller snake off the railing and was just playing with them for a little. When people got on the subway they all looked over in that direction and probably said to themselves, “What the hell.” One man almost sat right next to the guy but the man with the snakes let him know that were snakes on his lap and then that guy ran to the other side of the subway car. He then put the snakes in separate bags and then both into his backpack and off he went.” Please note that it is indeed illegal to expose your snake on the subway, since MTA rules mandate that “no person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passengers.” The Tale of Two Subway Snakes was first picked up by KTU 103.5 FM, who asked if this was “The Scariest Thing You’ve Ever Seen On The Train?”

Cheers To The Guy Pissing Into A Cup Then Pouring It Out On The Subway

See, here’s what I don’t get–why even piss into the cup if you’re just going to pour it out onto the train anyway?? You got more on your pants and hand than if you just pissed in the corner. The man is clearly just making more work for himself!
