The attack unfolded around 8:40 p.m. when the black suspect snapped at her 31-year-old victim, "Take off your mask!" in front of 411 W. 42nd St., cops said Monday.
The attacker swung a hammer at the victim, hitting her on the left side of the face, according to police.
Cops recovered the hammer, but the attacker is still in the wind. The incident is being investigated as a hate crime, authorities said.
No kidding? You mean someone hated someone else when they decided to attack the victim with a hammer? C'mon man, that had to be a crime of looooove!
Idiocy abounds, I see.
But I also see that for once we're calling racism what it is when it's not a white person doing it.
This may well be a first!
Can we catalog the percentages of suspected attackers by race when it comes to Asians?
And can we also look at the other crimes in relationship to perpetrator races compared with their percentage of the population?
The FBI does compile data like this, but nobody ever wants to talk about it. I wonder why not?
I also wonder why Burn, Loot and Murder doesn't want to talk about it.
We not only should, widely, we must.
On to the next topic -- Gates' Divorce.
His adult offspring and he have asked for "privacy."
Well, no Bill and Melinda. You won't get it because you have never left the rest of the world alone. Indeed you believe you have the right to do things like shade the sun, force vaccinations on people and that population growth is a "challenge."
Gee, what might come if the "challenge" isn't met the way he wants?
This is the basic problem with people who want it both ways; the answer must always be "NO!" And while it's not fair to include very young children in the penance applied to their parents this is not true once said "kids" take to the stage on their own or remain within the orbit after adulthood. No, you don't get to jet around the world and enjoy the billions of dollars without being accountable for how they were earned and how they are being spent. Nor do you get to play Greta and open your mouth as a public figure yourself and then demand privacy.
Life doesn't work that way. Take the risk, take the reward -- for good or bad.
Maybe -- just maybe -- there's something really bad that's headed out toward the public, eh?
