New York City might have been great, or at least bearable, at one point. During Rudy Giuliani’s time in office, and even during Bloomberg’s time in the seat of power, things went relatively well, or at least “well” compared to the hell that was New York in the crime-wracked days of the 70s.
And now it’s returned to those horrid days of the 70s, turning back into an absolute cesspool and hellhole where the taxes are almost as high as the crime rate, where criminals roam free as law-abiding citizens suffer the tyranny of the government and predations of those who should be locked up.
Such was proven yet again recently, when a homeless man in the Rotten Apple was just walking around and assaulting people, presumably because he was psychotic or otherwise divorced from reality.
Fortunately, however, while the cops were absent there was still someone there with the martial prowess, courage, and willingness to step up and stop an assault. That would be Ro Malabanan, an MMA fighter with a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and a yellow belt in judo.
Malabanan witnessed the assault in progress and, rather than whipping out his phone to record it, as tends to happen in the shredder of humanity that is the Rotten Apple, he stepped into action and stopped the assault. Watch that here:
Discussing the incident on his Instagram, Malabanan said:
“My jiu-jitsu instincts just kicked in. I jumped on his back. He tried to swing me off then — but for those of you in the know — a seatbelt position dragged him down to the floor, and I immediately took his back and pinned him to the ground.”
Malabanan also gave the thug a bit of a life lesson when restraining him, saying:
“You … don’t punch people in the face for no f*cking reason.”
He also wrote about the incident in a caption to the video he posted, saying “Play stupid games, and win stupid prizes. Story time 🗣 This guy assaulted six people before I got to him. I witnessed him punch someone right in front of me. Stay safe out there, everyone 🙏🏽”
The New York Post, providing further details about what Malabanan did to restrain the suspect and keep the situation from turning into one where the crazed homeless man’s victims took their revenge, said:
Some of the irate victims then began trying to attack the neutralized suspect, but Malabanan asked them to stop and call the cops instead, according to his narrative.
An initial police investigation revealed that Frazier delivered “unprovoked” attacks to the heads of a 50-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy, according to the NYPD.
He was charged with two counts of assault, according to police, who noted that Frazier did not have a home address.
We’ll see if those two counts mean he’s locked up at all, though it seems unlikely that the New York City “law enforcement” officials that have been turning criminals back out on the streets time and time again will suddenly change course lock this guy up to keep him off the streets, particularly since he’s black and thus gets the social justice treatment.
