Restaurant hostess attacked after asking diners for proof of vaccination

Three people were arrested for allegedly assaulting a New York City restaurant hostess on Thursday after she asked a group of diners visiting from Texas to show proof they had been vaccinated before seating them.

Cellphone footage obtained by NBC New York shows a brawl involving several people outside Carmine's Italian restaurant on the Upper West Side. Staff and bystanders intervened to break up the melee after it broke out around 5 p.m. ET, the station added.
The hostess, who has not been identified, was repeatedly punched and her necklace broken, police said.

One unspecified patient was taken to the Mount Sinai Hospital, the New York City Fire Department said, without stating their condition.

The three suspects, whose ages are 21, 44 and 49, were taken to NYPD's nearby 24th precinct station house, police said.

38. 'Tend to doubt' is purposefully non-committal

It's more a case of that scenario being less statistically likely.

Beginning with the fact that the likelihood of any combination of 3 unknown people being F-F-F would be (.5*.5*.5), or 12.5% (and hence the probability of a non-zero number of males being in a group of 3 is 87.5%), and ending with the fact that males are statistically far more likely to physically assault another person than females.

Joe had a very big mouth, and he drew a lot of bad attention to himself and others. He was rubbed out inside of Umberto's during a birthday party.

How you explain John Gotti, who was quite the gregarious mafioso himself, and became the boss of the Castellano family after Gotti and Sammy "The Bull" Gravavo shot Castellano outside of Sparks Steak House, is beyond me.

Gotti rubbed out the "right" people I guess, and Gallo didn't.

of the same general type the white trumpists are. We've seen a lot of videos of trumpist-type acting out from nonwhites eager to indulge their "righteous" hostility and resentments in the same ways against the same people.

As for Republican? Those who vote Republican. Still the same sort if they don't, though. Nothing new here.

76. I think a few years ago that'd be strongly true; now it's still true but a bit less.

Now, some of the most impatiently aggressive ones are adding public violence to their list of things good Christian patriots do. Political sociologists say most of these sorts are extremely righteous. They know they are The Good People. The only good people. Just as Hitler's adoring followers were.

They're a bellweather for far, far, far greater numbers of "respectable" RW authoritarians who'd approve their government, and citizen mobs, commiting mass atrocities for them. A little indicator is that they've killed anywhere from 660,000 to over a million people so far in opportunistic partisan hostilities, untargeted killing, without compunction or guilt or wish to stop.

This far right lunacy had bubbled under the surface mostly till their worst fears were realized, a man of color elected President twice.....and a dumb guy who inherited a fortune from Daddy played on that and lit a fire.

90. Yep, the assailants look to be non-white

African American, in fact.

Thanks for making me take a closer look. I actually put up my comment about it being a white-Republican type crime to see if anyone had more information on the attack and attackers.

Would love to have more detailed info about the sequence of events, who said what to who, etc. Maybe there will be more information forthcoming.

It is crystal clear in the video that people are choosing not to watch before replying.

Thanks for being a rebel Hugh_Lebowski.

For anyone interested.

"cause I'm a rebel like that..."

We tell ourselves what we need to, regardless of accuracy. But I get it... it's a juicy bone too tempting to pass up.

in this particular milieu.

Condensing that down to 'being a rebel' seemed succinct, sorry if that was bothersome.

96. One of the perils of not conveying that you're a 100% doctrinaire adherent to all liberal dogma

and signaling your bona fides in every single post you ever make ... is some people will give you a hard time on DU, and question your motives.

It usually manifests in some passive aggressive form, which I get a kick out of, honestly.

And what are ya gonna do?

65. 95% of restaurants don't have security

I live in NYC where there's a restaurant vaccine mandate law since Monday. Whoever is up front must ask the customer coming in for their cards. That's usually the hostess, who greets the customers at the door.

68. They don't normally need it

But aside from a typical "no shoes no shirt" message customers have incorporated over decades, the current vax restrictions are much different.

It's the employer's responsibility to police it, not the employees

75. A lot of times a restaurant only has one owner

He or she can't always be up front 7 days a week from open to close. Restaurants are hurting because of the policy (anti-vaxxers are for the most part staying home, which is good for us but bad for the owners). I'm all for the city paying for security however.

61. This is the reason why I oppose NYC's restaurant and gym vaccine mandate law

While I completely support vaccine mandates, don't put it on the workers to enforce them. Have under-covers go in and randomly check the customers, and give fines when necessary.

84. If a restaurant is going to require hostesses to check vax passports, then the

hostesses need to be 6'5" tall, beefy, and have a Resting Bitch Face. Many men will fit that description, and some women.
