(Rallying Patriots) – Violence in big cities has skyrocketed under Democratic leadership and their utterly abysmal policies. Violent crime is at an all-time high and what’s most alarming is that much of the violence is being perpetrated by young people who feel entitled to physically injure anyone they please.
This was the case for an off-duty New York City firefighter who was walking his dogs in a Queens park Friday night around 10 PM.
The 44-year-old was walking his 3-year-old Labradoodle Dylan through Juniper Valley Park in Middle Village when he suddenly became the target of an angry mob of teenagers, one of whom declared it was “fight night” in a disturbing video obtained by the New York Post.
“There were at least 100 kids… I was walking my dog. They just picked me out and approached me,” the victim, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Post Saturday afternoon.
“One kid took his shirt off and said, ‘it’s Fight Night!’ He said he was 19 and said, ‘I could fight you.’ Everyone took their cell phones out. There were cell phones everywhere,” he explained. “They all came at me…A kid came up behind me and hit me in the back of the head with a bottle and I let go of the dog,” he said.
In the video footage, the man can be seen attempting to defend himself while his dog barks at the mob.
“Give him a shot! Give him a shot! Give him a shot!” one teen repeatedly insists.
“Yo, what the f–k!” shouts one onlooker as the victim is taken down to the pavement and pummeled repeatedly.
“Old guy with a dog got f–cked up,” one teen is seen texting in the video.
The man went on to explain, “They didn’t care at all. The kids were going crazy. They were as high as a kite. I got hit, turned around, that’s when the kids started coming at me… Then I was on the floor, holding one kid and an ambulance pulled up. They were waiting by the park… If they weren’t there I would have been in much worse condition.”
In the end, the victim, a father of three, expressed that things could have turned out a lot worse, saying, “I’m a little lumped up. What are you going to do? Thank God I’m still here. It could have been worse.”
Police told the Post that the victim was struck in the head with a glass bottle but that no arrests have been made. The victim’s dog was taken by a good Samaritan who was in the area of the attack and safely reunited with his owner.
The victim says that the park has turned into a haven for out-of-control teens and that attacks have been happening pretty frequently in that area.
“Kids are getting bikes stolen, an older man got beaten,” he said, adding he found three knives Saturday in the park that he planned to turn in to police.
The victim himself has had encounters with the angry teens before. In one incident he says the teens were angry with him for yelling at them about jumping over a fence of a daycare center across from the park.
He also said another resident complained to the teens about illegal fireworks they were setting off, though that resident was not harmed.
“This is a tight community … kids with bikes … Maybe I’m old-school, but there’s no respect,” he added.
According to the Post, GOP Mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, founder of the Guardian Angels, said he was informed of the incident by residents who are asking his group to patrol the park amid “loud boom box music and fireworks are common into the early morning hours.”
The Guardian Angels will begin patrolling the park starting 6 p.m. Saturday, Sliwa said.
Notice how it’s a Republican stepping up to actually do something about the out of control violence and crime happening in New York City?

Let’s hope that New Yorkers take note and vote to change the direction of the Big Apple before it’s too late.
