No matter how bad a story is coming out of New York City, the next one is worse. I legitimately do not know what rock bottom is for that city, but I’m sure it is literally hell.
A 29-year-old man accused of trying to strangle an 11-year-old girl in a Manhattan park was arraigned and released on $7,500 bail on Saturday night.
Nathaniel Direnzo, of Saint Marks Place, was arrested on Saturday morning for a bizarre, broad-daylight attack on the young girl and another minor on Wednesday afternoon.
He was charged with second-degree strangulation, two counts of acting in a manner injurious to a child, second-degree harassment and two counts of assault.
A man strangles an 11-year-old and hits a 15-year-old and gets out on $7,500 bail.
This is justice in NYC.
I’m glad I live in Red county in a Red state. If a grown man tired to strangle an 11-year-old girl in a park down here, the only thing for first responders to do would be haul away his body.
As it should be.
I just hope we haven’t absorbed enough New Yorkers to change the culture so that grown men who strangle children in North Carolina get bail instead of bullets and any parent who defends their child gets arrested.
