January 1, Bystander’s Throat Slashed in Public Urination Dispute

Published

on

A shocking incident occurred in Manhattan when a man urinating on a car allegedly slashed the throat of a 66-year-old passerby who told him to stop, according to the New York Daily News. The victim, along with two other witnesses, complained about the man’s conduct, which led to an argument and the suspect slashing the passerby’s throat.

The New York City Police Department reported that the victim suffered a “severe laceration” and was rushed to a hospital in critical condition. The other two witnesses did not sustain injuries during the altercation.

In 2016, the New York City Council passed a law easing its criminal laws against public urination due to concerns that too many minorities were getting arrested. While police still have the ability to arrest people under the reform, the city council encourages officers to hand out civil summons instead. First-time offenders face fines ranging from $25 to $250, and those unable to pay the fine are offered the option of doing community service.

“This legislation will help us play a crucial role in building a fairer criminal justice system for all New Yorkers. It will help us drive down crime,” then-New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

However, there were only 67 criminal summons issued for quality-of-life violations in July 2020, compared to 3,915 in June 2023, as reported by the Daily News. Over 90% of these summons were issued to racial minorities.

The NYPD stated, “Quality of life complaints, which are often a precursor to violence, remain a real concern to residents in all city neighborhoods. The NYPD is always responsive to those we serve.”

Why It Matters (op-ed)

This appalling incident is a direct consequence of the misguided policies implemented by leftist politicians like former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. They have prioritized their political agendas over the safety of the citizens they swore to protect.

The 2016 law easing punishment for public urination has only emboldened criminals, making our streets less safe for law-abiding citizens. The drastic drop in criminal summons for quality-of-life violations shows that these policies are only benefiting the criminals and endangering the lives of innocent people.

It’s time to put an end to these dangerous policies and restore law and order to our cities.

    Sounds to me that the problem was not that too many minorities were getting arrested.
    Rather, the problem was that too many minorities were ignoring the law.

    “Reduced Penalty Because Too Many Minorities Being Arrested” This is the way to run a city? Why not make Murder by Blacks a Misdemeanor? That would clear the court calendar! NYC has gone to hell. Stories like this prove it. The perp will be released because he was Drunk, On Drugs, Black, or a Habitual Criminal. I would never again enter that city.

    New York City people voted for all of this. You listen to communists with their hate for freedom for all. You let them divide you by color and being a criminal. The democrats are destroyed everything you have. But you still keep voting these communists back in. Your mayor and governor are doing nothing but destroying New York City and the state. Mayor won’t do one thing to stop the illegals, take them on a plane or bus and send them back over the border. They want them as voters to keep their jobs to keep destroying your lives. Just keep showing the world just how stupid and lazy you are.

    It’s New York City, what do you expect! It’s no better than California. These cities have gone so far left that I don’t think anything, or anyone could bring them back to normalcy.

    Another degradation of our society. I do not understand why some people no
    longer have pride in their demeanor, their dress, in themselves or their country.
