Today’s extra-disturbing subway video is one of three men beating up an L train rider. Despite the gross nature of filming violence perpetrated on someone else (the guy apparently asked his attackers to stop spitting, which is, frankly, a reasonable request) — and, ergh, laughing — this does do the service of getting their images out to the public, so we’re re-posting.
This happened on a Queens-bound L train on Tuesday November 8 at about 2 a.m. If you have any information, you’re asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
As Gothamist points out, “On the plus side, the video’s gotten over 47,000 views on World Star, baby!”
This is how we live now. Sadly.
