We can sympathize with this woman about the perceived “manspreading” of this maniac, but why is nobody outraged over the vile racist comments of the thug, not to mention him punching a woman in the face?
A Brooklyn woman said a straphanger punched her in the face and cursed her out because she complained he was “manspreading” on a rush hour subway Thursday.
Sam Saia, 37, said she was riding the N train to work, sitting at the end of the car when the man next to her spread his legs open wide, and pushed her into the side of the car at 7:45 a.m.
When she asked the man, “Can you give me a little room?” she says he went off on her. “B—-, you ain’t nothing! I’ve raped white b—–s like you, f—ing c—! You ain’t nothing, you f—ing b—-!” the man yelled, according to Saia.
Quite clearly the author of this story missed the lede here. This freak is calling her a white bitch, a c-nt, and boasting about being a rapist. Now what do you suppose others on the train did? Why they whipped out their cameras, of course, instead of trying to help her and pummeling the guy. Or at minimum, tackling and detaining the creep until police could arrive.
“Stupid me, I should have got up at that point,” she told the Daily News. “I just told him to relax and I put my earbuds in.”
Instead of calming down, the enraged man socked Saia in the mouth, splitting her lip and banging her head against the wall of the subway car, she said.
A video posted by a witness to Saia’s Facebook page shows what happened next — a good Samaritan, who described himself as being “off-duty” stepped in, grabbed the creep and ordered him to leave the train.
“Get the f— off the train. Get off the train, bro, you just f—ing hit a lady,” the man said.
Did it not occur to this “off duty” individual to try and detain him? Were there any other men on there who could help? Has everyone in New York become some damn pussified they can’t react instinctuyally to a woman being attacked in such a vile manner?
Instead of even dissecting the man’s comments, we have a story about “manspreading,” because that is now a thing. Vile racist attacks? Pfft. Can’t be bothered.
Saia decided to file a complaint and then got the runaround from the NYPD, it appears. At least there’s a photo of the punk, so maybe he can be identified.
