someone was able to snap a photo of this dude, with what clearly depicts a hand on his arm most likely holding him back from the impending assault. YET, no one stopped it or stepped in?
This is what NYC has come to. a place where cowards reign


I really hope someone comes forward and says who this person is. let people be who they want to be… Honestly what is wrong with people.
