Cops bloodied an 84-year-old man and put him in the hospital Sunday when he jaywalked at an Upper West Side intersection and didnt appear to understand their orders to stop, witnesses said.
Kang Wong was strolling north on Broadway and crossing 96th Street at around 5 p.m., when an officer told him to halt because he had walked against the light.
Police were targeting jaywalkers in the area following the third pedestrian fatality this month around West 96th Street.
Wong, who lives a block away, appeared to not understand the cop, the witnesses said.
The guy didnt seem to speak English. The cop walked him over to the Citibank near the northeast corner of 96th and Broadway, said one witness, Ian King, a Fordham University law student.
[The officer] stood him up against the wall and was trying to write him a ticket. The man didnt seem to understand, and he started walking away.
The cop tried to pull him back, and thats when he began to struggle with the cop, said King, 24. As soon as he pushed the cop, it was like cops started running in from everywhere.
Wong was left bleeding and dazed with cuts to his face.

Well they did just vote in a Marxist Mayor.
Even if you can’t speak one word of English - you don’t run away when a cop is talking to you and you don’t fight a cop.
Even a mute and deaf chinaman knows this.
An 84yr old man, jaywalked...so freakin what! It has to escalate to drawing blood?
In order to save him they have to beat the sh!t out of him.
Um he is 84. At this age any kind of injury can be fatal.
Is this the world you want to live in? You know. We have a choice as humans. We can choose to help each other or we can make each other as miserable as possible. A choice.
What is your choice?
Kang Wong immediately assumed the identity of his cousin, Sum Ting Wong.
If you are an 84 chinaman who somehow came to this country without learning ONE word of English and think it is OK to fight a cop...
you are going to get you ass kicked.

See, we don’t give them the right to beat the crap out of us. Even if we don’t respect their authoritah.
There’s no law on the books that says the penalty for trying to escape a red faced roid raging cop is an ass kicking.
Yeah, sure. That old guy was a real threat. Hope the city loses a bundle and somebody, sometime bloodies the cop.
Now if he was a Muslim....
I'm sure being 84 years old played a role in this encounter. Typically people don't beat up their grandfathers because they are too old to always be alert and responsive. It takes a very special kind of person to strike an old man.
Mr Wong lawyer just said “kaching!”....
Like a cop? And when he does, you know the jackboot lickers will be johnny on the spot to defend him.

Ouch -- Well placed.
You must be the thread’s designated ass.
