NY Mom's First-Hand Account Of Violent Attack Will Make You Glad SCOTUS Stepped In
Stories like this aren't uncommon in NY but they do make me glad that the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) made it easier for citizens to own guns, Reports and cctv footage paints a horrific attack in a Harlem neighborhood in New York City Monday evening. An unidentified 31-year-old mother said she was just picking up a bottle of wine on her way home from work when a group of men attacked her outside of the liquor store.
The unidentified woman spoke to WBCS-TV and explained that she passed the men as she entered the store. Footage shows two of them followed her inside. The woman told the news station that the man in the red coat offered to 'pay fo her' which she says she politely declined.
"I politely declined, and I said, 'No thank you, but thank you, I can pay for it myself,'" she recalled. "And I got ready to walk out. Before I walk out he basically said that he felt like I thought I was better than them."
The woman explained that the men followed her outside where they continued harassing her.
"I just asked him, I said, 'You're seriously trying to fight me? I'm trying to go about my business,'" she said.
The mother said the group on men began punching and kicking her as she tried to get away. At one point she dropped her smartphone and as she and the man in the red jacket fought over the phone, another man told her to run. Explaining that 'he' had done this to someone else. She told cameras that she tried to get away but the men mauled her. One trie to bite her eye out, the woman explained.
"To bite me, and do that – maul me the way that he did – with me screaming, and saying I'm just trying to get my daughter. That – that's an animal. That's not a person," she added.
The vicious attack someone explained to her that the men could come back and that she needed to just run. The attack left her unable to open one eye and a very severe cash on her forehead.
