This poor guy... And what would you bet that the man who attacked him, calls everyone racist regularly? I really hope he answers HARSHLY for this crime.

First of all, God bless the people who came and protested against this attack. those of the community, where this sick individual who did the attack is most likely from. Unfortuatnely, the so called model minority, which supposably all other minorities are supposed to be like, this branding has really been somewhat unfair. Most of the time, many who do these attacks are very ignorant. I most certainly double this hoodlum was a successful person in life.

Support police for their jobs! Arrest criminals who attack people . This has nothing to do with colors. USA can not be a place to protect criminals of a certain color!!

This is the shame of the country if USA can not even protect its own citizens. No black has qualification to shout out "BLM" if he himself attacks people from other races. That's common sense. USA is sick for political correctness. USA now is being reduced to a country of violence and has become a haven of criminals. What a shame!!! shame !!! Shame!!!!

This is clearly an attempted murder. The man was left for dead after the attack. The suspect is half way to his life cycle. A decent 30 to 40 years in prison is plenty enough for him.

These people who are assaulted by the Homeless/Mentally ill need to start suing the city and any agency that cleared him to be on the streets. We are being shot, stabbed, Pushed into trains, and Asians are being beaten up by people who Usually have mental issues. The NYC's Mayor has unleashed evil upon on. well all know that 95% of people who are homeless have criminal Records, Are Violent and have mental issues, that is why they are homeless, no one will hire them, they can't hold down a job for long. Trust me NYC Knows this, they are just trying to play Homeless people are people down and out on their luck, Thats Bull on a very small percentage of people are homeless because they lost their jobs..... Let's start suing the city and any agency involved in early release or unsupervised Releases.

I can't stop shaking, trembling or my eyes watering every time I read these appalling stories of pure unprovoked cruelty on a vulnerable human being. How times have changed. Decades ago, -my grandparents were never, ever, treated this way---by anyone, as they went to the neighborhood market, walked to work, etc. . My deepest prayers that he recovers in full---and that the "person" who did this gets the full justice he deserves. My prayers to his family, too.

Failed public firearm policies! The real issues are socio-economic and/or mental health. The Eddie Eagle gun safety program should be mandatory in NYC and NJ public schools 1) STOP 2) Don’t touch 3) Run away 4) Tell a grown up. Further, without real TSA-Courthouse style security in place “gun free zones” should be banned, otherwise its a lie! Correct the fact that NYC and NJ have old times STATE SPONSORED RACISM via their subjective (unequal) “may issue” scheme for lawful concealed carry it is never issue permits to Black, Hispanic or Asian citizens. “May issue” = Rich White people only. Solution is “Shall issue” using objective (equal) standards, taking racism out of the equation! The 2nd Amendment in The Bill of Rights to our US Constitution, GUARANTEES every US Citizen has a RIGHT TO KEEP (have) AND BEAR (carry) ARMS. Other wording in 2A “militia” any able bodied male, service in a militia is NOT a requirement, it is an Individual right (not collective), “Regulated” means equipped, in proper working order NOT gov rules “Shall not be infringed” means what it says. 14th Amendment GUARANTEES EQUALITY!!!

My 10 cents of psychology is that a lot of these incidents are copycat incidents and the people who do these want to be part of a group, like a fad, fashion trend, jumping on the bandwagon., etc. I think the news media and social media are making these attacks more popular and more trendy. Although it is probably legal for tv news to show how someone made a homemade bomb, they probably shouldn't. Showing attacks on Asians, and others may just cause more attacks.

@A S I try to answer as best as a non Chinese. "So why do Africans get treated so bad in china?" This is most of the comments randomly pop out when a Black American (not related to African people) is being racist to Asian Americans. I tried to search for the news related to China and black. The only one i could find was the African in China being caught due to they are wandering in the lockdown period (not sure if it in Wuhan or which cities). Out of many claim black is badly treated in China comments, "non" of any black has given me any conditions "how" they were treated. And the best part is they feel justified if the Asian got killed in US by spamming the comments when the black is the attacker. Only a tiny few comments saying the attackers should be arrested. Talk about racism. China is communist control, i dont trust communist much. Go see how they treat xinjiang or even their own people in HK. But the Black there were treated better than asian here. They dont randomly kill your elderly because of the skin colors, burn your store, loot your belongings.

@T 2T OK this is off the topic a bit, but you seem like the right person to ask. I see Africans and Chinese people getting along fine in the US, I'm also pretty sure that the perpetrator is not African. So why do Africans get treated so bad in china?
