Cops say that early on Sept. 4, Yax allegedly approached a 30-year-old woman on 65th Street in Brooklyn and reached up her skirt.

    Why are these comments about the race/background of the guy arrested and not about the PROBLEM?! And the fact that guys who do this, and it’s always been a problem, are now being arrested for it?! Thanks to the women who fight back, to the women that report it, and to the NYPD and media for starting to give this problem the attention it deserves–You cannot legally fondle a woman on the street no matter what background! And as it has happened to me personally 4 times, and with more than one ‘race’— I’m appreciative that something is finally being done about it.

  2. You're Probably an Illgeal yourself says:

    You guys are retarded, Yax is not a SPIC last name. Yes, he might be an illegal immigrant, but he is not SPIC. How many of you can say your family did MIGRATE from another country? Because we all know IRISH, ITALIAN, GEWISH, RUSSIANS, ARABS, CNADIANS, AFRICANS are ALL IMMIGRANTS!

      ^looks like another liberal escaped from the psych ward^

  3. Rafael says:

    Criminals come in all shapes and colors for you to put caps in caps Spic, which is very offensive to hispanics the equivalent to calling an african american N…..a which is dispicable on your part. Glad they caught the suspect.

    you 2 are very racist and ugly. all i hope is that your ugliness turns back on you in the most bizarre and ugly way.

    1. Very conservative says:

      Liberalism is a mental disorder. And you seem to have a very severe case of it. I strongly suggest that you seek psychiatric help IMMEDIATELY.

      1. Michael says:

        you make no sense. to keep things simple for you – go play in traffic – but wait – let me put this blindfold on you 1st…moron

        Stupidity is a Conservative disorder and you seem to be blessed beyond belief with it.
