72-year-old bleeding from brain after Village ‘knockout’ attack | New York Post

A 72-year-old cancer survivor was left with bleeding on the brain when he was knocked out in broad daylight on a West Village street, law enforcement sources and the victim said on Tuesday.

Retired cabbie Donald Lathrom was listening to his iPod while walking to his home from a local deli around 5:30 p.m. when a punk standing on the sidewalk near the corner of Jane Street near West Street smashed him in the face.

The sickening attack was caught on surveillance video, which shows a stunned Lathrom tumbling into a doorway and hitting the sidewalk before the suspect bolts across the street, where a friend was waiting, cops said.

Such a mystery.  So strange.  We apparently have no idea at all what sort of “punk” would do something like this.

Oh, wait.

I’ll bet you’re shocked, shocked by this, right?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
