Problem: Adam Klotz, a television meteorologist who was attacked by teenagers after standing up for an elderly man.
The situation in New York reached a breaking point when a Good Samaritan trying to stop a gang of young thugs from bullying an older man was severely beaten, and the attackers, although apprehended by the police, were neither jailed nor even charged for their actions. crimes (“Rain of Horrors”, January 23).
Failure to hold criminals accountable for their violent transgressions destroys the social fabric of the city.
If the progressive leaders of this state continue to refuse to defend their citizens, then soon these citizens, like a Bronx wine cellar worker, will use force to protect themselves.

After reading The Post’s horrific story about a meteorologist being attacked by a gang of thugs, the saying “spare the bait and spoil the kid” immediately came to mind.
After that, the bandits were released without charge. The current “reign of terror” in the city is the result of a “rain of mistakes” by our leading left-liberal politicians.
Of course, the adage “what you sow, so shall you reap” naturally explains the rise of the current wave of crime in New York.
After six teenagers set fire to an elderly man’s hair, Adam Klotz challenged them.
For this, they brutally beat Klotz, while many other New Yorkers on the train just looked like cowards.
This is far from an isolated case. I remember one lady said to someone, “Sorry, that’s a New York custom” and the thug turned around and kicked her down the escalator.
A passer-by below saw the helpless woman falling down, and instead of catching her, as any decent person would, stepped aside so that she could continue her long and painful fall down the metal stairs of the escalator.
Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel said, “There are only two types of people: decent and obscene.”
Lawless New York should pass a law making it a crime to ignore people who have been harmed or threatened when the intervention is reasonable.

When will the madness end? Why aren’t law enforcement on every subway train?
These young criminals set fire to the hair of an elderly man; a concerned citizen intervenes to stop the massacre and is viciously attacked. After that, the three attackers are identified, but released.
Those who release these animals should be arrested. Another solution is vigilantes patrolling the subway, but the media and left-wing crazy politicians will not like this solution.
I have three sons, three daughters-in-law and five grandchildren living in New York and I am very concerned about their safety.
Adam Klotz was attacked while defending an elderly man and not a word from the mainstream media.
They threw one of their own under the bus because it didn’t fit their agenda. If it had been a New York Times reporter after a GOP rally, it would have been on the front pages of the world’s newspapers for a month.
The bastards who attacked him were set free (okay, New York voters). Now only the public can protect themselves.

Hanger beating teenagers are not “underage”. They are hardened violent criminals. I would give everyone 10 years in prison.
And is it a crime? Gang attack on the subway? Who came up with this law?
What’s wrong with this picture? Is anyone safe from these roaming teenagers who don’t respect others?
Why do their parents let these teenagers go out so late at night?
If these teenagers are not charged, then perhaps their parents should be sued for lack of supervision. That is how it should be.
And to meteorologist Adam Klotz: I hope you’re recovering from your injuries.
