I have a problem with publishing people like this because someone claims something. I have no doubt that most of these claims are true but it also leaves open the possibility that anyone can do this as a retaliation for something. Shame on LIC Post.

For a brief moment, I had a similar thought, but if you look a little closer, you’ll see two things – 1) the photo was released by NYPD and 2) there is video of the man, so it’s probably safe to assume he was on video doing what he’s accused of.

So because you hear it from the police it makes it true do you know how many cases were covered up like makeup concealer you literally only see have his body even if he was doing what he was doing maybe more people should’ve posted about it and report it not everything you see on the internet is real search some captology

So that’s the reaction you have? I assume that the people witnessing the incident were questioned by the police, and that there is a strong likelihood that this did in fact take place. I really doubt that some woman would want to risk committing crime by falsely reporting this incident to the cops.

Put your pearls away, fella.

Yes, that is my reaction. I could google and find thousands of instances where a woman, or a man, has falsely reported a crime. The really sad and thoughtless reaction is yours.

You are getting desperate. This has nothing to do with the perv that has been clearly reported by several people as grabbing his bollocks in public. Why are you defending him?

Why do you give yourself 17 thumbs up? Don’t you think that is weird? Don’t you think it is weird that you get a kick out of being rude and childish? This is the last time I respond to you. Go ahead, have fun Troll.

There were numerous fliers around train stations warning passengers about this sicko
Disgusting acts like this are occurring far too frequently. These are only the ones we know about. Imagine people who may be too ashamed to inform authorities

brooklynmc thinks it’s fake news. I think he’d have a different reaction if one of his kids was the target of this creep.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
