Shitlol, You want me to explain why some clown drove like a maniac through New York City on a moped?!?!

Your post reads like you were actually injured. Do you have a concussion?

I can still manage to brake fast.

My front license plate holding bracket took a solid hit and is now hanging on by 1pin rather than 2.

As for concussion.. that's TBD.. I'm ok physically but not mentally.. pretty pissed off and my heart is beating out of my chest.

Think my dashcam also caught it, for all the good it'll do.

Need to calm down.. breathe
Need to calm down.. breathe
Need to calm down..

Isn't it ironic? Dontcha think? That's just great though.

Ok enough funnies.. but why the fuck would someone go through 5 red lights through moving traffic?

A more simple and useful explanation please?
Stupid driver

Because he was a bicyclist who graduated to a moped?

About to head into the city for drinks. Saw someone's post from today in the city, West Village, Jack's Wife Freda, pretty cool spot for drinks, food is just ok. Anyway, this is the dystopian hellhole of NYC. Just outside a restaurant for shits and giggles. I got a DJI Action Cam 4 to put on my bike on a few rides this year. To show lots of dystopian NYC, perhaps the last summer not under the rule of fascism.

I didn't see any Walmart parking lots or Confederate flags. I did see non-white people acting like they were equals to white people.

A lot of people would watch your video and see a hell hole.

I went to NYC last week, and was so traumatized that I've only been able to post about it now.

I went to JFK Airport last week to pick up the old man and the old lady from their vacation overseas. Horrifying is the only word.

I went early to meet up with a friend from Queens and we had dinner at Flushing. I...I saw...Asian people. Clearly communists sent here to infiltrate our country. Those smiles are clearly fake and meant to make us drop our guard, then they can swoop in and steal our infos from our Tik Tok account.

But anyways, after dinner, and as I was heading to JFK, I had to use the restroom so I took exit 13 on the Belt Parkway to get to Canarsie Pier. On my way to the port-a-potty, there's a black person unreeling a long line. He nodded at me. I think he was seeing how much he could get for selling my organs. Terrified, I made my way to the port-a-potty and locked myself in. Having relieved myself, I ran to my car, and somehow safely was able to get to JFK and back home with the old folks. Now I'm back in Philly, and I feel safe, as I bask in the comforting glow of the Four Seasons Total Landscaping parking lot.

You lived to tell the tale. That is what is important.

I had a very late lunch at 6PM with my wife in a restaurant in Queens.

We were interrupted for 5 seconds by a migrant walking into the restaurant and trying to sell some perfume. Western Civilization is ending. Bring the barbarians back to fight them off!!

On a more serious note.. the only thing I really feel complaining about is the traffic.. took 7 times and 6 times to make a left turn. 20-25 mins stuck at one intersection. We were really starving due to that.. shoulda taken the subway.. /shudder

My wife just visited NYC to help a friend sell her property. Needless to say this was against my wishes, and she never returned. Not sure what she was thinking, with all the roving hordes of violent migrants clogging streets. My best guess is that she was eaten. They should just mine the bridges and go full Escape from New York at this point.

I went to brunch the other day and the amount of violence inflicted on my wallet was insane. That being said the rest of the experience was wonderful. Great food, good atmosphere, convenient to get to, etc.

The people who think NYC has high crime either live in east queens/Staten Island or like Oklahoma. And amusingly enough Oklahoma’s biggest city has much higher crime than NYC.

She probably ran afoul of an immigrant shopping cart gang.

So...how much was the life insurance payout. Even without a life insurance payout, this seems like a convenient way of getting rid of unwanted spouses. And you would have gotten away with it if not for those meddling kids.

This is the guy who did the assault. From what I read he is responsible for at least one other. There are mentally ill people walking among us, and we need a system that doesn't just exacerbate the problem by only treating them criminally which usually just makes them worse.

and on my evening out on Saturday, the idiots of NYC went out in the dystopian hellhole subway in casual clothes and they even brought young helpless babies with them!

Lets call it what it is.. a violent hate crime that requires automatic 5 years in jail just for that.

Only been happening since forever.. time to hold all the assailants accountable.

Is this really going to be a thread about every crime that takes place in NYC?

NYC is a low crime city. Anyone telling you different is either ignorant, delusional, or lying.

Crimes that happen to famous people count more apparently.

Excuse me the rand punching/ assault thing is really out of control and happens way more often than the media has stories for it. Only a fraction are reported as what good will it do?

It's misdemeanor assault and the assailant isn't even jailed. Most of the time the cops write it off as mutual assault.

I believe the city is semi safe at best. Safe from guns.. maybe. Safe from rapes.. maybe. Safe from gangs.. maybe.

Safe from random punches.. hell no!
