Brutal mugging in Crown Heights

Since Crown Heights came up in the comments…

The video above is a mugging that happened October 2014 on Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights. Franklin Avenue, for those not familiar with Crown Heights, is the main commercial street in the heart of supposedly gentrifying Crown Heights, where there are various shops and restaurants recently opened that cater to hipsters and SWPLs. The muggers were stupid enough to do their act right in front of a surveillance camera (set up by the owner of a bodega) so they were caught on tape and later arrested.

The 21-year-old girl who was mugged is actually Hispanic, but she seems like a white-mestizo Hispanic and not a black-mulatto Hispanic. I am sure that the three blacks who mugged her assumed she was one of those white girls gentrifying the neighborhood. And in fact, she recently moved to Crown Heights from Georgia, so she’s not a local girl from the ghetto. She told the news reporters that she moved here to become a model, and don’t know if there’s any realistic chance of that happening, but the idea of moving to New York City with the dream of a self-actualizing career is a very SWPL thing to do [although as rivelino points out, true SWPLs would dream of working in the arts, the media or philanthropy; aspiring to me a model is prole].

  1. New York, SF, LA… all our era’s version of Prince Charming’s Ball.

    It’s too bad most girls don’t get fairy godmothers.

  2. Men will protect their women, even against a hostile government like we have. But it doesn’t work when most American women, SWPL women especially, are only interested in careers (or illusions of careers) and dating up (or illusions of dating up). Sad really.

    Widespread economic independence of women from men (fathers, brothers, husbands) eventually leads to cultural rot and increasing violence against women.

    • Not everyone can be an LA 9 or 10 for having men pay their way through life. But then you would turn around and call them golddiggers….


      December 17, 2015 at 4:35 pm

      • Golddiggers want money. I’m talking about women wanting families (rather than careers).

  3. The mugging victim was out on the street alone at 2:30 A.M.

    • So? One should be able to walk home any time of day or night without being brutally beaten up. Have you never been outside after 2 AM? Especially in your younger days?

      • If you’re in the territory of dangerous megafauna, such as grizzlies, great white sharks, or dindus, it’s really a good idea to take precautions.

      • I’ll refer you to one of your favorite books Arrest Proof Yourself by Dale Carson. He devotes an entire chapter to why you should keep your ass home at night. He says that when trying to capture Ted Bundy the fbi and police decided to cordon off parts of the city at night and stop every person and vehicle. He says they expected to find a lot of people with outstanding warrants but that what they found shocked them.

        To quote Carson, “Nearly every single person stopped between midnight and 4.00 AM had a criminal record. Practically every car contained dope, guns, and stolen merchandise. Honest people work during the day. At night they’re at home asleep. People who work the night shift are at work at night. The only people wandering around, hanging out or driving in areas where there is no shift work are bad guys.”

        If you’re out at night then that’s who you’re out at night with. Why swim with sharks?

      • Obviously, she was not able to walk home without being brutally beaten up. It was her free choice to walk. She took the risk. What is her reward?


        December 17, 2015 at 10:39 pm

      • Ay caramba. Hope you don’t run your own life on the basis of “should be” rather than “is”.

        I have been outside after 2am. But I am a large, powerful man. If I were that chick I would not have been outside. Moreover, she failed the elementary safety rules of “avoid Dindus” and “if Dindus are within ten feet of you, keep your eyes on them at all times”. She turned her back on the predators and she got eaten. Cause and effect. “Should” has got nothing to do with it.

      • Why do people move to NYC, not knowing that NAM miscreants (especially blacks) are part of city life?

        And yet, NYC is called the “greatest city in the world”!!!

        Miscreants, who are common in “dangerous” Canadian cities (such as Winnipeg and Saskatoon), happened to be White trash in most cases, but they’re pretty tame when comparing to our dark savages in the inner cities.

      • All major cities have NAMs with the possible exceptions of Portland and Pittsburg (which have fewer and are less major than cities like NY, DC, San Fran, LA).

  5. Do you know if the attackers were caught? Not that it would have mattered, as they would have been out free on bail within a few hours.

  6. This is sad. There was also a story about a rape attempt in the Williamsburg train station a few months ago. People need to remember that a gentrifying neighborhood is still a unsafe neighborhood. It is getting better but its not there yet.

    De Blasio’s hands off policy isn’t helping at all. Beggars and crazy people seem to be more visible than ever in the trains and parks.

  7. great post, but this part is a reach:

    “the idea of moving to New York City with the dream of a self-actualizing career is a very SWPL thing to do.”

    all kinds of dumb girls move to new york or LA to become models and actresses, actually i would say it’s much more of a prole move than a SWPL move.

    the SWPL girl moves to the big city to use her brain as journalist or marketing assistant, like in when harry met sally or the devil wears prada. the prole girl moves to the big city to use her body, like the skinny love interest girl in eight mile.

    • Yes, this is true.

    • Spot on. But the spirit of the competition is the same. Small town girl aspires to rise to the top of the big leagues in the big city no matter what the sport; whether fashion, modelling, media, advertising, journalism or non-profit nonsense.

      For the same reason higher class attractive young women would rather be complimented for their clever wit, intelligence, strength or courage instead of just getting called “hot.”

      • Wrong. Every girl will rather prefer to be called attractive than clever, even if she is 80.

  9. Watching that led me to a related video of a home invasion in Millburn, New Jersey, recorded by a “nannycam” on a living room mantel… a young mother attacked in her house at 10:30 AM. This stuff is horrifying.

  11. That video is why I tend to avoid World Star Hip Hop and the like. It makes me want to kick these…uh, well, men…in the fucking teeth repeatedly. How do you do that to a woman, for fun no less? They easily could have robbed her without the vicious assault.


    December 17, 2015 at 8:58 pm

    • I’ll say it again. Typical TNB behavior.


      December 17, 2015 at 9:08 pm

  12. I assume she was a neighborhood watchperson and therefore deserved it.

    BTW – I remember the chief of police in Philly saying that there was no such thing as the knockout game and that it was a concoction of racists. I bet this is a fake video planted by Trump supporters. The only real violence is white police officer on black victim.


    December 17, 2015 at 9:06 pm

  13. Lol, what is interesting about this?

    Black men beat up and rob girl?

    This is a hardcore dog bites man story.
    I almost feel bad for the schadenfreude I feel when the same people in favor of having violent feral people roaming around get victimized by them. It’s poetic in a way.

    The best part of the video is when she “Screams for someone to help” and yet, there is no one as she is unmarried (hates men, probably feminist), and the only other men out at 2 am where she is walking ain’t gonna help no white [hispanic] bitch.

  14. aspiring to me a model is prole

    The young women that appeared on Tyra Banks’ “America’s Top Model” all seemed pretty prole.

  15. A girl has no business walking alone on the street at 2 am. None of my girls ever do. No business taking a car service with a male driver either. My kids use only female drivers. This girl is crazy.

  16. If you saw a stranger getting attacked by thugs, would you risk your life to save the stranger?

    • This is the first thing I thought of. I’ve had my powerful punch till a few years ago, but now the age (56) and the lack of proper training due to overworking is taking it’s tall. In the last fight I had with a black dude a couple of years ago I got a black eye, even though I saw the punch coming. My animal instincts are not the same, I guess. On the other hand, I’m hard wired to get involved, so for a Jewish I would for sure, for a white girl I probably would on a pure instinct, for a black girl I probably wouldn’t, and for a Spanish girl I dunno. The last two have a relationship dynamic very different from us and you can end up being the bad guy in the end.

      • “The last two have a relationship dynamic very different from us and you can end up being the bad guy in the end.”

        This is true. Even if you’re doing the right thing the whole lot of them including the girl could turn on you simply for being another race and butting in.

      • @Mobutu

        I don’t know what you mean, but we were just discussing on a Russian site the fact that Western European men don’t protect their women from assaults by Muslim ‘refugees’. So one fellow, who had fought as an artillery officer against the Nazies in Ukraine from the first days of the rebellion, recounted how he successfully faced about 15 ‘guest workers’ that were bothering a Russian girl on the subway. The board generally agreed with him. He thought that Russians are different on a genetic level, but I don’t think so. If the Vikings can wimp out, so can the Russians. It’s very important for Russia to preserve it’s culture, that’s what I think. No stupid diversity, know wrong from right and be judgemental, firm and violent about it.

  17. I saw this and immediately thought of LotB – unless this has already been seen here and I missed it? NYC in the 1970s as shot by the BBC –
