110th Street (Columbia University area) Multiple Stabbing

Posted on September 12th, 2007 by The SUBWAYblogger in Crime, Kids, This just in

 110th Street

I was up at Columbia this afternoon, and heading to the train on my way home.  I happened to be closer to the 110th Street station, so I headed in that direction (versus the 116th stop).

Quickly, realized that was a bad idea.  The place was crawling with NYPD and rescue.  From the look of it, I thought for sure there was a jumper or something.  People standing around said there was a fight.  Looked like there was way too many cops and EMT’s for a simple fight.

So I went back to 116th thinking that the train would at least roll by 110th where I could get a better look. Well it did roll by…without stopping.  The police had closed the stop.

So I went home not really knowing much more than that.

Just moments ago, I found out the real story thanks to Newsday.  It turns out that there was a multiple stabbing that involved three teens.

The kids started fighting at 59th Street/Columbus Circle.  The fight eventually spilled out onto the street at 110th.  Two of them ended up stabbed or slashed.  The other was beaten with a cane.  (Are kids carrying whipping canes these days?)

I love this quote from a witness:

“This is a grassroots problem,” said Shira Dicker, 45, of Morningside Heights. “Anybody who rides the rails knows that the kids are a real menace.”

The AP reports that non-caned were slashed in the face.  Sweet, at least that will build future “street cred.”

However, there were no arrests made, which seems a little odd.  Perhaps there’s more people involved that didn’t get catch the business end of a blade…or cane.

(Editor’s note:  I know 110th isn’t technically Columbia.  However, if you are familiar with the area, then you know that from 110th – North is definitely college territory.)

    This situation was very horrible, but to Shira Dicker, the woman to blamed kids on the crime in the subway, i must say something.

    You cant blame all of the problems that goes on in the subway today on teenagers/young people. Ok, so maybe there are acts of violence commited by them…but how about Sixty-something year old men harrassing women daily? Or how about the homeless (which could be young or old) doing the same. There are soo many other problems in the subway system pertaining to crime, and yes, teens/young adults have commited crime, but so have grown “mature” adults…

    Thanks for the several tips shared on this site. I have observed that many insurance agencies offer clients generous reductions if they decide to insure several cars together. A significant quantity of households own several automobiles these days, particularly those with older teenage youngsters still residing at home, and the savings for policies might soon begin. So it is a good idea to look for a bargain.

    I just read an article about Robert Pattinson,check this out “Robert Pattinson Can’t Maintain His Great six pack abs!Although he’s determined to have the same buff body in Breaking Dawn, he’s finding it somewhat difficult. In his interview with Entertainment Weekly he said that when he first started getting fit all he might take into consideration was keeping it up so that he’ll stay looking buff in his new film projects”.I feel he’ll still look great

    Great article. It’s very unfortunate that over the last decade, the travel industry has already been able to to handle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, as well as first ever real global economic depression. Through everything the industry has proven to be effective, resilient along with dynamic, obtaining new methods to deal with difficulty. There are constantly fresh challenges and opportunities to which the marketplace must once more adapt and react.

    One more important part is that if you are a senior citizen, travel insurance for pensioners is something you should make sure you really think about. The more aged you are, a lot more at risk you are for making something poor happen to you while overseas. If you are never covered by several comprehensive insurance plan, you could have quite a few serious problems. Thanks for expressing your ideas on this website.

    One more thing. It’s my opinion that there are lots of travel insurance sites of reliable companies that permit you to enter a trip details to get you the insurance quotes. You can also purchase an international holiday insurance policy on the net by using the credit card. Everything you need to do will be to enter all your travel particulars and you can view the plans side-by-side. Merely find the program that suits your financial allowance and needs after which it use your bank credit card to buy it. Travel insurance on the web is a good way to search for a trustworthy company pertaining to international holiday insurance. Thanks for discussing your ideas.

    Thanks for the tips about credit repair on this amazing blog. What I would tell people is always to give up the actual mentality that they buy now and fork out later. Being a society many of us tend to make this happen for many issues. This includes vacation trips, furniture, and also items we’d like. However, you need to separate one’s wants from all the needs. If you are working to boost your credit score you really have to make some sacrifices. For example you may shop online to economize or you can go to second hand retailers instead of pricey department stores intended for clothing.

    One other thing I would like to say is that rather than trying to fit all your online degree courses on days of the week that you finish off work (because most people are fatigued when they come home), try to receive most of your classes on the weekends and only a couple courses for weekdays, even if it means a little time away from your end of the week. This is fantastic because on the week-ends, you will be far more rested and also concentrated for school work. Thanks a lot for the different points I have mastered from your site.

    It’s my opinion that a property foreclosures can have a important effect on the applicant’s life. Mortgage foreclosures can have a Seven to few years negative impact on a applicant’s credit report. The borrower that has applied for a home loan or just about any loans as an example, knows that the worse credit rating is usually, the more difficult it is to acquire a decent personal loan. In addition, it may affect a borrower’s ability to find a good place to let or hire, if that will become the alternative houses solution. Great blog post.

Having said that, they do not always realize that there are additional benefits to losing weight in addition. Doctors assert that obese people come across a variety of disorders that can be instantly attributed to their excess weight. Fortunately that people who’re overweight as well as suffering from a variety of diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their particular illnesses by way of losing weight. It is possible to see a continuous but identifiable improvement with health while even a minor amount of fat reduction is obtained.
