A 67-year-old man was punched in the face in an unprovoked attack at a Long Island City subway station Monday.

The perpetrator, police said, allegedly approached the victim inside the Court Square-23rd Street subway station at around 9:50 a.m. and sucker punched him without cause, according to police.

The victim had been waiting for a 7 train on the Manhattan-bound platform. No words had been exchanged between the 67-year-old and his attacker prior to the assault.

The assailant then fled the station.

He is just misunderstood. He just wants bread. Let’s set him up with a room at the new Phipps housing projects on Barnett Ave, a 10k check, and have his record expunged. After all, thats who our progressive council members want in Sunnyside.

I could tell by the photo, I didn’t need a caption. If you scroll up, it’s right there; there’s even a video! Tough concepts to grasp, give it time.

ALL LIVES MATTER

This is why BLM is a farce and everyone else is suffering. BLM and their white apologist supporters who know nothing about racism are enabling ghetto blacks to act out more than ever. They are acting out as a result of systemic racism? Yeah right! Stop the BS. Blaming hunger for them looting Louis Viton and Gucci stores was one of the best excuses ever. We need more COPS and less constraints on how they police.

“We need more COPS and less constraints on how they police.”

Yeah, they should have exercised fewer restraints on January 6 outside the Capitol.
