Asian man, 61, in critical condition after 'horrific' N.Y.C. attack

Source: NBC

New York City police are investigating if a "horrific attack" that left a 61-year-old Asian man in critical condition Friday night was racially motivated.

The attack occurred around 8:30 p.m. when a man struck the victim from behind, "causing him to fall to the ground" in East Harlem, police said Saturday.

Surveillance footage released by the New York Police Department's Hate Crimes Task Force, which is also investigating the incident, shows the man kicking the victim's head repeatedly while he is on the ground.

18. Trump has far right QAnons of all races believing his

anti-Asian propaganda. If he can get them to blame China, Fauci, and CDC he can avoid blame for his abysmal lack of leadership and his thousands of lies.

Not on him, my @ss. Trump made it open season on Asians over a year ago, and the trend has yet to stall.

All the attacks are NOT by black males, but, I do know that RightWing propagandists have posted tapes and pictures of only assaults by blacks. Is that where you get your propaganda?

28. Black males going after Asians,...

1).
Covid hit the Black community particularly hard. The wonder/miracle drugs blood/plasma Covid antibody meds given to trDUMP, Christi, Judy Trudy Rudy, were not given to the black community. So their Covid death rates were very high.

2).
As a previous poster mentioned, trDUMP royally fucked up the entire Covid response from top to bottom. He lied at every bend and turn so he could down play the severity of the pandemic crisis to enhance and boost his political chances at a second term. To cast any Covid aspersions off himself or accept any blame or responsibility, he deflected all blame off himself. Then proceeded to cast all blame of the "China Flu" and "Kung Flu".

He bounced all the blame off himself and targeted the Asian community. The Japanese, the South Koreans, the Vietnamese, the Cambodian, and finally the Chinese communities are all suffering and are being attacked because trDUMP unleashed the rabid dogs of hate on them to deflect blame off himself. trDUMP engineered this because his ass was on fire and he attempted to dump the entire problem of the Asian folks.


*~*~*~*~

So trDUMP is an active and direct instigator for this out of control and escalating Asian hate and attacks.

10. This kind of thing could lead to vigilantism,

with neighborhood patrols to protect people from assault, or catch the assaulters. I do not normally support vigilantism, but people do need to be protected.

I don't think vigilantism could ever be an effective form of justice, protection, or deterrence, even without it's bad racial history.

...Further, people in New York City will be motivated to turn in the fool..The video is horrific, and
my guess is that it won't take long to find this fool. People in New York City are proud of their city,
and its diversity. My guess is that this fellow will get caught very soon.

If we didn't have actual people claiming that we should abolish the police and replace them with social workers and investments in the community.

Which incidents like this show isn't realistic and would lead to more violence against minorities.

30. I'm Asian American and now I'm scared of Black people

And I never was before. In a room full of mostly white people, I would always gravitate toward the Black people in the room because I felt kinship with them. I felt we had something in common. I hate that this sense of comfort is changing to fear because of these attacks. I hate that a few bad apples make me afraid of those who have suffered greatly. I wish I could feel some sense of support from the Black community but on Twitter I see a lot of these comments: ďthat old Asian guy must have uttered a slur so he deserved to be beaten to death.Ē

I know there are those who want to divide us and I donít want to be divided. But Iím scared.

39. I'm sorry for that...

...because I went to school with many Asian kids in that same NYC and we liked and respect each other even if we weren't the closest of friends. Prejudice is a poison that can inflect it's effects on all kinds of people. If this person is caught, it will likely be because someone who knows him, some other black person will drop the dime. I can't tell you who not to fear, but most people of any kind don't believe in doing this to another human being.

The NYC underworld has mostly shut down over the last year, so a lot of folks who are dependent on scams to raise a little drug money and the crooks who sell to them have been in a hard way. I'm not justifying it at all and the right wing blame china rather than our haphazard health system and selfish Republican Fat Cats who made this such a mess world wide.

51. UPDATE: New York City man suspected of attacking 61-year-old Asian man arrested

A man suspected of a "horrific attack" on a 61-year-old Asian man in New York City was arrested early Tuesday morning, police said.

Jarrod Powell, 49, of East Harlem, faces two counts of felony assault, according to a statement from the New York City Police Department. It's unclear if Powell has a lawyer.

The victim was allegedly attacked at about 8:30 p.m. Friday when a man struck the victim from behind, "causing him to fall to the ground" in East Harlem, police said Saturday.

Surveillance footage released by the New York Police Department's Hate Crimes Task Force, which is also investigating the incident, appears to show the man kicking the victim's head repeatedly while he is on the ground.

Emergency medical personnel rushed the man to a local hospital, police said.
