Rubbish, human excrement and violence. These are the best words to describe New York’s subway lines that have turned into a hotbed of crime recently.
A recently released, disturbing footage shows a man hitting a 60-year-old woman more than 50 times with her own cane in a Harlem subway station.The attack happened just before 3:30 a.m. Friday when the woman was walking at the West 116 Street and Lenox Avenue station, NYPD officials said.

The shocking, 2-minute video shows the unidentified male lunging at the woman with an umbrella and the woman trying to fight him off with her cane. The suspect is able to grab the woman’s cane as she falls to the ground screaming.
The man then strikes the woman with her own cane more than 50 times in the head, stomach, leg, arms, back and hands so hard that the wooden implement falls apart. The woman, who is on her back by that point, manages to grab what is left of her cane away from the deranged man, who then starts pummeling her head with his fist. The woman remains motionless on the ground for a few seconds until the suspect kicks her several more times before the video cuts off.
Another video shows an Afro-American man beating a woman half to death at night. He repeatedly kicks her in the head after she falls to the ground, while threatening those who attempt to rush to her aid.
Besides violence, basic hygiene is also a serious problem now on the subway. The subway lines and the stops have become shockingly dirty of late, with footage often revealing human excrement, among other things.

Earlier, Fox News has also reported on the sire situation on New York subway lines, and that subway crime has soared by 41 per cent in one year. More and more people are simply being stabbed, or pushed in front of the incoming train carriages, often for no reason.
New Yorkers fear for their lives as subway crime soars a whopping 41%. This is Kathy Hochul’s New York.
