    There is an increased number of these types of assaults being perpetrated by nothing less than “animals”, and I absolutely agree with the comments given by “NYC” that unless these ‘dogs’ are treated they way they really need to be handled and not coddled, situations are only going to get worse! This country/city needs an enema! Badly!

    FAT BOY SHOULD OF GOT A HUNTS POINT CHICK, AND PAY HER FOR SERVICES RENDERED, INSTEAD OF CHOKING OUT A YOUNG LADY IN THE ALLEY. HEY FAT BOY, ONE OF THE BEST PARTS OF SEX, IS WHEN SHE WANTS TO GIVE IT TO YOU DUMMY. LASTLY, YOU KNOW YOU’RE GOING DOWN. YOU BETTER HOPE THE POLICE GET TO YOU 1st BEFORE YOUR VICTIMS FAMILY MEMBERS CATCH UP WITH YOU. GOD HELP YOU IF YOU TOUCH ONE MY FAMILY MEMBERS. I WOULD TRACK YOU DOWN AND GO H.A.M.
