Update: NYPD arrests dozens after gang runs amok in Times Square, Herald Square
NY Daily News ^ | 4/5/10 | Sarah Armaghan, Rocco Parascandola AND Helen Kennedy

Posted on 04/05/2010 1:25:06 PM PDT by jimbo123

Fifty-four people were arrested Monday morning after hundreds of young thugs rampaged through Times Square and Herald Square in what cops say has become a new Easter night tradition of Midtown mayhem.

Four people were shot - a man and woman in Times Square and two women outside of Macy's. They were taken to Bellevue Hospital with relatively minor injuries.

The overnight melee - in which the police appeared temporarily overmatched - resurrected old urban specters.

Mayor Bloomberg called it "wilding" and Manhattan Boro President Scott Stringer warned of "reliving the bad old days of the 1970s."

Police said the three wounded women were innocent bystanders caught amid surging groups of gangbangers, most of whom had been to the annual car show at the Javits Center.

"This city is going to hell. People shouldn't have to worry about being shot, especially in Midtown," said a fuming Tena Hemingway, 23, of Brooklyn, whose 19-year-old sister, Iasia Manson, was shot in the elbow outside Macy's.

Race riot! What a story!!!

Wait, the victims were white? Okay. Skip it. Nothing to see here.

The ‘atmosphere’ of violence about Tea Party peaceful demonstrations is reported as news.

The ACTUAL violence of leftist thugs created and funded by the left = no news.

So how’s that gun control in NYC going? More gun control needed? How do you get guns away from those people?

NY city has two major problems. A totally limp wristed lib for mayor who wants to blame the woes of the world on firearms.
The second major problem: “Witnesses described large groups of young men swaggering through the streets, periodically breaking into a run when someone pulled a gun.”
Too many Amish.

I'd say some New York liberals might just have a slight smidgen more respect for Giuliani (as mayor), who I reguarly saw referred to as a "facist" and "Nazi" on visits to New York.

Nah, that would require they have some capacity to learn from experience, which we know is not the case ...

Given this report, it may be that table salt is not the first priority in NYC... just a preview of what may be a long hot summer all across the country, with a lethal combination of contempt for the government and a sense of entitlement come together.

Easter Sunday in New York City = “Gang Initiation Day”

From today’s New York Post:

“In past years, the NYPD and businesses have beefed up security in the area on Easter Sunday, which has become known in certain circles as “Gang Initiation Day.”

In previous years, the youths, many sporting their gangs’ colors, gathered first at the Auto Show at the Javits Center and then made their way to Times Square.”

I remember a lot of them crying when he "Disneyfied" Times Square (evicted the porno shops). They can now take comfort that the good ol' days are returning.

I’m not so sure that Bloomberg is a limp wristed lib so much as some weird, not yet classified mental illness. He only seems interested in stuff that personally annoys him, like smoking and salt, but goes after it with the determination of a crazy person.

The bit about his relationship with salt is telling. The man is an insatiable salt junkie. Normal people can’t eat the food he serves. But he has been told a lot that this much salt can’t be good for you. So his response is to want to use the law to ban it.

The pattern shows up again in that he used to be a smoker, and maybe had a hard time quitting, or has been told he must quit. So his response is to lash out at other peoples’ tobacco. He is also highly afraid of assassination, so he wants to ban guns.

Some psychiatrist could make a career of this guy.

Sure, I’ve no doubt that he has left-squishy-liberal tendencies, but they are so overwhelmed by whatever squirrels he has in his brain, that I really have no idea what he will do next.

If the squishy liberal part is in control, he might order the gangsters released. But while on their rampage, they might have killed a pigeon or something, for which he will want them put in prison for life.

Life under the rule of a crazy man must be unnerving as hell.

It’s just oppressed blacks, malotto’s and greasers unhappy that Barry hasn’t brought them wealth redistribution fast enough. I’m sure that the White House will use this opportunity to recruit soldiers for Obozo’s elite Pretorian Guard. it’s that hopey changey thing that’s only smoke and mirrors. Enough!

Gangs are collective usage of people for assault with a deadly weapon. It is a felony and they should be shot to death. Night clubs see individuals regularly bullied by gangs who own the places by fiat number. We need some shoot to kill laws against these collective thugs.

Bloomberg is morphing into David Dinkins. Just like Dinkins, he’s given up on the subways and has let the thugs, homeless and pyschos take over, especially at night and in the early morning.

He’s ordered the police to stop making arrests in order to hide massive increases in street and subway crime over the past couple years.

It’s going to be rough summer since the natives have started to run wild in the streets again.

Dinkins went to tennis matches and social galas clad in a tuxedo while the streets went wild. Bloomberg is pursuing the same type of folly. It’s going to be a bad summer in NYC.

Gangs of black criminals place people in danger of losing their lives solely because the attacked people are not black. What is a rational response to that considering that the sole function of the police seems to be drawing chalk lines around the bodies and flagging cartridge cases. My answer is organized self defense. Until people stop ignoring the elephant in the room, my individual answer is to think carefully about where I go and to take measures to defend myself.

Aw come on folks, these are just misunderstood youths, just being boisterous and carefree. You shouldn’t be afraid, it’s not really assault, it’s horseplay, and it’s not really robbery, it’s assertive contribution gathering. The colorful language is just complementary of the colorful dress. The whole grabbing of your female companions breasts and buttocks is an old, timeless tradition of saying “Hello fine people, we are so glad to meet you!” You really must learn to accept other cultures....

If you would just find it in your heart to donate some belts to these disadvantaged youths, they most certainly would hoist up their trousers.

Oh, and another thing...
