Increased economic inequality in NYC = Increased crime, especially in the NYC Subway system as a breathing ground for crime, particularly during the night.


Please…. white guys have done this shit too. Arrest the man and hold HIM accountable for his actions, not his entire heritage

Serious Question

If there are no witnesses, video, or physical evidence, what can be done to someone who commits crimes like this?
