Why New Yorkers are fleeing the city in droves

New York

Back when people used to read newspapers, they called it a ‘human interest’ story. Now it appears as just another statistic. The know-nothings on social media, who express utter drivel on a daily basis, will have pretty much ignored it, but a dreaded pro-Biden sheet actually published the full story.

‘He’ll be furious when he comes round — he’s very much against wearing a mask.’

A young Japanese man came over to the Bagel from Tokyo to make it as a jazz pianist, and that he did. He started a trio of his own and toured with several bands until the fateful night of 27 September, when he rode the New York subway after a video shoot. Tadataka Unno is now 40, and a new father, but he most likely will never play an instrument as a professional again.

Coming off the subway at West 135th Street, the Japanese musician was surrounded by a group of ‘young people’ (as in the UK, the media over here tend not to describe criminals by their race or ethnicity). The group beat the musician for no known reason, fracturing his right collarbone, injuring his arm and rendering his right hand useless. He now uses his left hand only and the fuzz has made no arrests although the beating was all caught on camera. Throughout the ordeal he remembered being called ‘Chinese’ or ‘Asian’ plus a profanity. Young people beating some stranger is hardly a crime the cops will bother with in Harlem nowadays, thanks to Mayor De Blasio’s and Governor Cuomo’s woke liberal policies. Why bother to arrest anyone who will walk after ten minutes is the police thinking. Bail is no longer required for lesser crimes, such as looting.
