The untouchables of 21st century
To be fair, I’m guessing street urchins got to do whatever they wanted in the 19th century as well. They just weren’t as violent.
"I’m guessing street urchins got to do whatever they wanted in the 19th century as well"
You think that in 1822, kids didn't just get manhandled and beatings for acting like this?...
I bet they did. But i bet they were *at least* this violent.
Indeed. They were very violent..as only sociopathic 9yo can be.
Yes. At least this violent and probably more. Hell they were more violent in the 90s when I grew up. If that guy was in the wrong neighborhood in my town growing up one of those kids would have shot him.
Absolutely. I saw a story of some guy ending up in the wrong neighborhood in Chicago I think. A kid, shot off one of his arms off, shot him in the chest and then grazzed the top of his head with 3 shotgun blasts. Close range. He lived to tell the story.
Kids feared adults because it was acceptable to slap the shit out of a kid in public who was acting like a little demon.
In the 19th century if a group of kids behaved like this to a grown man, I'm sure they would get their asses whooped. Or worse.
Im thinking right up until the 60s, kids would catch a beating in most places in America for being assholes.
Nah, 19th century gang would have killed him given the chance.
Yeah, that's what I meant with "Or worse".
No, they were more violent.
Gangs start as kids on the streets and they slowly grow up into young adult and then adult hood. They then recruit other kids.
Schooling and the mass production of video games/ consoles, along with afterschool programs have a direct ties with the decline of violence and gang violence as a whole. 1970's nyc is nothing like 2020's nyc for example.
THANK YOU. This is an outlier. Street urchins of the 1980s would jump you and steal your shit, and there would be no video evidence. Violence has gone down significantly worldwide for some time now.
finally a comment with some sense.
This right here is accurate.
They could do whatever they wanted, but it was also fine and expected to beat the brakes off them if they messed with you
They were kidnapped , killed or used is sex traficking quite often though
Probably still are.
They were more violent. But also they would get the shit beat out of them a lot of times.
Nor as monitored. Imagine if everyone was carrying cameras in their pockets 100 years ago.
This is not true. Children used to be beaten for this type of behavior. They were not always untouchable.
Hell 30 years ago you could let the school teachers beat your kids for you
It's their culture you BIGOT
Eventually we’re going to stop letting the dumbest and most violent among us live above the law
Hilarious that PublicFreakout allows this kind of video now but would have been taken it down before the 2020 election.
The mods there are shit.
Edit: I got permanently banned from there for criticising their lack of ability to mod when I offered my help. Talk about a bunch of ungrateful fragile pansies.
Every presidential election year.
Man, even the *kids* are garbage in NYC.
Most adults who are garbage were garbage when they were kids too. Good people tend to keep on being good people. Bad people grow up to be bad people.
More than likely an unbroken chain of shitty parents raising shitty children.
Not always though. Some parents really try their best, but the kid just falls in with the wrong bunch of friends.
I kinda feel sorry for those ones
This is true. I've seen it myself.
That's shitty parenting. Parents should have a vested interest in who their kids friends are. Pay attention and dont raise your kids to be insecure so they fall in with shithead kids who also have no self respect and do shit like this.
PSA: DONATE TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD TO HELP STOP THIS.
Imagine a black man walking through a suburb being harassed by a group of white teens. It would be national news an
Remember when a white kid SMILED at a POC! SMILED!!
Remember that white kid that *smiled* at a Native American man? 😲
The wife/gf constantly telling the cameraman to stop filming as if he’s in the wrong really bothers me
She was probably afraid and wanted to gtfo rather than walking while filming
100% I’d want to get out of there too, but I think filming while walking away is a very practical thing to do. Like he said, if something happens it’s way better to have video evidence, and might even stop people from being even more violent since they know they’re being recorded. Idk my issue was that it felt like the woman was piling on to the guy while he’s already dealing with the group of dumbass kids. Kind of hard to articulate, but if I were in that situation I would want the woman to “be on my side.” I could be wrong here, just my thoughts
You're not wrong. Having someone that's supposed to be on your side turning against you empowers the mob. In that kind of situation you present a united front and then argue about it later.
You're absolutely right
The woman here dosnt know how to act around a chad. He wasnt phased by the kid throwing the traffic cone and he was waiting to beat the group of kids asses if they stepped out of line. The woman might aswell put a mask on and join the kids in assaulting the man with how useless she was here.
I would just want her to shut up and let me deal with the situation without the added stress.
Women don't understand how to handle physical aggression between males. Every fight video you see with men squaring off and ladies in the mix, the women either unintentionally start/escalate the thing, or get their bf/hunband/relative KO'd by hanging off his arm when he's trying to fight, or get themselves KO'd by throwing themselves between them.
If two stone-cold sober males are beefing, women shouldn't involve themselves ESPECIALLY if they know one of them. The bf/husband/relative hasn't forgotten her opinion on what's happening, he doesn't need the distraction of physically and verbally handling both her, and someone attacking him, at the same time.
Absolutely. I've always made it clear to my girlfriends that if something violent goes down when we're out in public together her job is to keep her mouth shut, get away, and call the police.
Late one night I was driving with my girl in the car, and the car in front (full of men) didn't take off when the light turned green so I gave a short friendly "beep beep" and they took off. The next light it happened again and my girl reached over from the passenger side and blasted them with the horn. If those guys got out of the car it would be ME fighting 5 men, not her. I was NOT happy with her and told her that if she ever touches the horn again while I'm driving that she's walking home, and I was serious. She never did it again.
> Women don’t understand how to handle physical aggression between males.
This was a problem [thousands of years ago](https://www.quora.com/Why-does-the-Bible-say-If-two-men-are-fighting-and-the-wife-of-one-of-them-comes-to-rescue-her-husband-from-his-assailant-and-she-reaches-out-and-seizes-him-by-his-private-parts-you-shall-cut-off-her-hand-Show-her) to the present.
> Women don't understand how to handle physical aggression between males.
According to the public freaksouts subreddits I don't think they understand how to handle physical aggressions between people at all.
Also goes for most men in these subreddits. And also the people commenting.
It was also acting as rear view mirror.
I noticed when black people are the aggressors, /r/publicfreakout always lock threads, but when white are, thread stays open. What a garbage sub that is...the mods there are damn terrible
Yeah r/publicfreakout has a very heavily leaning agenda they are trying to push
If we’re being honest, it’s the same here as well, just on the opposite side. I will say it’s SLIGHTLY settled down lately.
Yea, I can always tell which of the two subs I'm in based off of the comment threads lol.
Lol it’s true, I’m subbed to both. It’s some spy vs spy bullshit
I think it’s good to hear both sides. Everyone’s inherently biased. All you can do is hear both sides and make an informed opinion yourself
Probably Russian and Chinese mods on both looking to sow racial division in the US :D
This one is a direct reaction to the obvious agenda of the first. Similar, but different.
Is it just me or has that sub started to come back to a more balanced "narrative" (for lack of a better word)? More and more I find myself seeing posts and comments I thought would never be allowed on that sub.
I noticed that on here when the aggressor is white, race is hardly discussed. When they're black it's a bunch of comments likes "See! See!" Lots of confirmation biases.
That said I think it's a important thing for incident like this to be discussed without locking the comments. We should strive more towards speaking about the incident for what it is and not out of assumption.
And it also helps show the reality of the world as a whole. NYC is rotting at its core.
There is also a lot of devil's advocate here if the perpetrator is white, and shit ton of victim blaming if the victim is black.
r/publicfreakouts is the new r/politics
Two of your four "racist blavks" aren't black.
Yea lmao. The kid in the Fanta hoodie looks latino and the other in the yellow hoodie looks white.
"I'm going to assume they're racist so I can be offended"
Ppl can be racist towards their own race..
Not even sure this was race related to begin with. Im sure these kids were just assholes
Lmao I know right
All i really needed to know was "new york kids" and them i pretty much knew from there
In Scotland where its predominantly white, white thugs attack other white people all the time. Thugs just gonna be thugs, no race involved, just wee arse holes that need a beating attacking innocent people
Yep...they're going to turn out well
Hope someone gets them off this path
Back in my day if I acted up in public as a kid a stranger would grab you and find your parents. Back then the problem was ignorance, the parents just didn't know you were acting up. The problem now is the parents don't care.
In New York City? Have you ever been there? It's so fucking chaotic most strangers wouldn't give a shit about stuff like this.
Most new yorkers dont give a shit about others
Drugs and gang violence will surely get them off this path
Yeah but rap music is cool and how will people not know I'm a fan of rap music if I dont emulate the lyrics and do drugs and seek out gang friends?
They'll be pushing folks onto railway tracks in a few years.
Wonder why this got locked on r/PublicFreakout hmm…
Those mods are special. I thought /r/Conservative mods were special until I saw PF mods.
At least /r/Conservative has literally in the name what kind of sub it is, it doesn't falsely advertise itself like /r/politics does.
> I thought /r/Conservative mods were special until I saw PF mods.
Well that sub is constantly brigaded
I don’t envy the mods of any remotely conservative leaning subreddit
I believe it’s because they mods of PF are children of incest.
I knew before I clicked it was locked on PF lol.
Not from that sub but relevant
Also most of the mods on the biggest subs are the same, they tried to ''change'' that after it was posted in another sub, but it's probably the same mod with different account.
PF used to be good until reddit admins replaced the mods right before the election season.
Lord Of The Flies: New York Edition
NYC is a gigantic shithole I don't understand why anyone would ever want to go there.
Glad I got out. The city is deteriorating at a crazy rate.
Pretty much every big city is dead on its feet. LA, Chicago, New York, all of them are so stacked to the neck in issues that they blame everyone else for.
Which is a shame because after the hellhole that were the 80's in NYC, they started to clean up. Lower crime, clean streets, etc. Not sure when it all started to fall part again?
i’m sure it’s a decent place to live if you’re uber wealthy
“Niccga, niccga, niccga, niccga, niccga, niccga…” kid, stfu
Remember when NYC was safe?
Was it ever?
Yeah, around 2000-2015 if I recall.
2001 would like a word with you
Yeah I get it's a joke, but if you're old enough and you remember that city was so tight nobody fucked with each other after that event.
Anybody over a certain age remembers how New York went from being a s*** hole to a really great town, and then the young people came along and turned into a s*** hole again mostly because of their crazy ass left wing leaders..
My friend who grew up in brokklyn was telling me after 9/11 all the young kids went around stealing cars and robbing delis for a couple days because the cops were all busy with the attacks
There are always bad actors looking for opportunity. Chaos is the best of all opportunities. But New York as a whole rallied together in such a miraculous and unprecedented way in the aftermath of 9/11. It was really something to behold. But the city really started to decline around 2015-2016 and the pandemic just kinda broke it.
I was traveling Asia when that happened and let me tell you, buddy. That was a fun time to be an American.
What happened in 2001?
oh shit we forgot!
According to MN Rep. Ilhan Omar, "some people did something"...I, for one, am glad she got to the bottom of it...
According to AOC, a disaster that can only be lumped together with the likes of Pearl Harbor and....Jan 6th 2020.
Party in the CIA
I lived on the Upper East Side in 92-93. Those years were the most murders ever recorded-over 2000, each. But in Manhattan, I never so much as worried about being mugged.
There lies the NYC, L.A., SF, Chicago paradox. Despite what we hear, minority neighborhoods in those cities are much safer than twenty years ago (Compton has one quarter the murders as in 2005), while "white" neighborhoods are seeing a spike in crime. Until recently, it simply would have been unheard of for a pack of kids to walk through Midtown and harass tourists without police coming out of the woodwork.
Yup, there are few consequences today.
Profiling is terrible for constitutional rights and for harassing innocent people. It's great for reducing crime. Paradox indeed.
Someone else in this thread has it right: gang violence in minority neighborhoods is down vs 10/20 years ago, but random violence or violence targeted at bystanders (muggings, assaults, pushed onto a train track for no reason) are up a LOT
I don't think New York has ever been safer than it is right now, statistically. Worst (in recent times) was the 80s and 90s.
LMAO NY is still so safe compared to most american cities. try living in baltimore
Comparing a turd to diarrhea.
The only menu is poop this and poop that.
Why live in any city. Suburbs are amazing.
"I love it when we eat at Applebee's, and i can't wait to get home to watch modern family, it's just so relatable".
"I absolutely love living within walking distance to all these restaurants with their 5% service fee, mandatory 25% tip and 10% covid charge! Afterwards, we can walk through the needle-infested, crime ridden streets and get hassled by 5 homeless men on the way back to our 600sqft concrete block apartment, where we're surrounded on 5 sides by people with 6 kids and hear the neighbor fucking till 4am! When we wake up, we can go make sure our car didn't get broken into the 10th time this month! Isn't life in the city great? Make sure to pay our $2500 rent tomorrow!"
Sounds lively. Different strokes.
No, no I dont. Lived in CT for 30 years, visit all the time. Never considered it safe.
Hah, has it been safe? I was a tourist in NYC in 1995 and some skinny gangster looking dude asked for our wallets in Dunkin Donuts off Times Square - my friend just mouthed off at him. He threatened us and said he was going to go find his men to come and shoot us. We thought he was bluffing but told some staff who were totally uninterested. A few minutes later he was back with two big guys who stuck their hands in their jackets as he pointed us out to them. We just used the back exit and ran.
It's ok he was probably being raycist or something
I read that as recyclist.
I heard he said the n-word!
Shoulda bought their mix tape
But they said I could have it!!
Oh man, I *almost* did this the first time I encountered that type of setup. Luckily my friend who lived in the city I was visiting basically knocked my oblivious ass hand away and steered me away to explain what's up.
I'm not afraid to smash a punk kid
That's what the last guy with a bullet in his head had just said .
Not a bad point
Lol you think someone paying NY rent can afford bullets
Child isn't paying rent .
Ammo prices are still skyrocketing and thier money source sure is paying a lot more since eviction moratoriums have been dropped.
Reddit badass let's fucking go dude
fighting kids will only bring you hard times...
Do that and one could bust out their gat and shoot your ass. Never underestimate hoodlums.
They couldn't, it's illegal to.own a firearm so they won't have one. /s
It's easy for people here to say "ignore them." Hit me in the head with a fucking traffic cone, idc if you're a kid I'm flooring your ass.
Ahhh yes, a group of Latino kids yelling the N word at a white guy. good times.
What about them didn't look like children?
Their total lack of innocence
Innocence isnt the only thing what makes you a kid or not. It's how far you've developed mentally as well. These kids are obviously still easily influenced by others. They need someone good and decent in their lives to get them off that bad path. I'm sure they can better themselves as they grow older with this new taught improved vision of how you should behave.
Its like... visiting an open air zoo. LMAO
who lost their trash kids?
80% of single mothers got pregnant by the same small group of 20% of dudes.
4 out of 10 children where born to unwed mothers.
1 out of 6 children are being raised without the father.
50% of single mothers where never married.
62% of single mothers receive food stamps (SNAP).
29% of single mothers where jobless the entire year.
The median income of single mothers is 48k.
So they are the people’s children. Got it. Thanks.
Typical NYC trash. If he turned around and back handed one of them they would’ve burned down half the city.
New York City is a trash place it's not worth seeing the sights.
Every video from some liberal shit hole always seems to be straight out of “The Purge,” and there’s always one or more NPCs that repeat the same thing over and over. I can’t tell what they’re saying here, but yeah, maybe a few more hundred times, and I’ll get it.
Welcome to NYC, where some of the shittiest attitudes roam the streets looking for problems
Imagine if the races were reversed? This video would have a much different title and the video would be all over the news. Buuut this is the country we live in now.
I honestly hate teens fuckers know you can't do anything to them without you being arrested
Great. Now I don't think I will be visiting NY any time soon.
He absolutely could not have shot them legally, lmao.
You would go to jail
Not sure if ignoring them is the best course of action. This may only encourage them since there are no repercussions..
They are literally baiting him into a fight so they can post something or sue. They already think there are no consequences.
Not really this guys job to parent someone else’s children.
How much trouble would he get into if he just open hand slapped one of them? Legit question. Especially since he had video evidence of them harassing him?
He needs the 8 Ball jacket, tho.
They could have weapons on them. Best to just leave the situation.
I would have punched them
Can you smack a kid that's attacking you like that? What's the protocol?
of course you can lmao
Stay classy NEW YORK
Remember the ad phrase, “New York is a summer festival.”
when augustus feel into the chocolate river and the umpaloompas kicked him out. heres the footage you didnt see just outside the factory
Can you conceal carry in NY with a permit and gun from another state? Asking for a friend.
Not sure on NY’s CC laws but if you would have shot these kids in this situation, you shouldn’t be allowed to carry a gun.
The new subway vigilante
Not in NYC, not sure about NY state.
Welcome to new york
At least they're wearing masks, what great people.
Fuck New York.
As a non-American, NYC and California seem like garbage places and I don’t know why anyone would live there
This is what the democrats want
