The NYPD released footage this morning of three men who followed the victim from behind at about 1:20 pm on Wednesday, April 27, in front of 33-55 10th Street.

As the victim pushed the first man away he observed a second man with a pipe in his hand who was yelling “Isis-Isis” and a third man with a baseball bat in his hands, police said.

Congratulations, you played yourself

I like how you call them animals but condone this behavior. The human mind is truly amazing.


It isn’t very clear from the article but maybe the three guys are showing their loyalty to ISIS? Get the local cops out of the way and call homeland security – maybe send these 3 to guantanamo for a spell.


The Astoria precinct are to busy dealing with locals bitching about outdoor cafes and ticketing cars to actual deal with shit that matters.

First of all he isn’t Arab second of all is he was no one has the right to touch anyone. They are cowards that needed a group of to fight one person.

Lmaooo, they’re accusing this man of being a terrorist but are the ones threatening with assault? In what way does this make sense? Even more important, three on one with bats and pipes?

I guess

You don’t remember the polar bear/ knockout came from a few years ago. Targeting white people. No color/creed is immune to hate.
