Sure these slashings in the subway and elsewhere are scary and some New Yorkers are worried but balance out the crimes with the reports of family members being prepared to turn in their own family members to help shut down vicious crimes like these.
A grandma horriifed by a slashing attack on another grandma in the subway turned in her grandson when she saw a video that helped her identify him.
See the video which shows him tripping over a ticket barrier after the slashing incident. She recognised his clothing and went to the cops.
And several weeks ago two sets of parents turned in their sons, one 14, the other 15 who were implicated in a rape in the bronx.
What incredible moral courage to do this – to do the hard thing that may ultimately result in these young men having a chance to eventually change their lives for the better instead of turning a blind eye and letting them slip into a full time life of crime. New Yorkers are the best.
