January 1, Subway Slashing Exposes the Dangerous NY Underbelly



In the heart of the bustling metropolis, where skyscrapers touch the heavens and dreams are as diverse as the city’s denizens, there lies an underbelly steeped in shadows. It’s a world where disputes on a subway platform can escalate to life-threatening violence, a stark reality that was thrown into the limelight recently when a man was slashed and pushed onto the tracks in Manhattan.

It was a regular day, just like any other. The humdrum of life bustling about, until, within the bowels of the Second Avenue station, life took a turn for the worse. A disagreement, the catalyst of a grim scene, where a man was attacked, slashed on his right arm, and stumbled onto the subway tracks. With a grim determination emblematic of the indomitable human spirit, he pulled himself to safety, nursing a wound that saw him rushed to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition.

The assailant? He fled, vanishing into the city’s sprawling labyrinth like a specter. A man in a gray shirt and black Adidas pants with white stripes — a phantom in plain sight. As of this moment, he remains at large.

To some, this is an incident, a blip in the radar of the daily news cycle. But to others, like yours truly, this is a symptom of a wider disease plaguing our society. We are descending into a world where respect for human life is fast eroding, where the lines between civility and savagery are blurring.

Today, it was an argument on a subway platform that turned violent. Tomorrow, where else might such a horror strike? The times call for vigilance, for an unwavering stand against such heinous acts that shatter our sense of safety and community.

As a nation, we must return to our foundational principles. Remember the significance of personal responsibility, of meritocracy. Let’s remember that freedom is not just about doing as we please but respecting the rights and lives of others. It’s about living up to our moral obligations, not succumbing to baser instincts.

So, let’s look out for each other, just as we would want others to do for us. Let’s build a society that cherishes life, and rejects violence. Because we are not beasts in a concrete jungle. We are a community of individuals, bound by the unspoken oath of compassion, empathy, and respect. Let’s not let the actions of one man blind us to the beauty and humanity that can thrive even in a city as sprawling and complex as New York.

      When? AFTER you pull out your firearm and then discharge it and hitting “him/it/whatever”.
      When the “bad guys” start dying , then maybe peace will show its’ head
