Old Fashioned Washington Beat Down

The Caning of Charles Sumner

Washington, D.C. has had some historic beat downs over the years. Unfortunately, we added another one to this list. Enter Allen Hawyood, who you’ll see below in the video, making a ruckus.

TBD reports:

On Sunday night, Allen Haywood was randomly and viciously attacked by two kids on the platform of the L’Enfant Plaza Metro station. Dozens of people witnessed it. Several people filmed it. Nobody helped.

Haywood was trying to transfer to the Yellow Line around 7:15 p.m. when the assault happened. He was headed home to Fort Totten after working out at Results on Capitol Hill, a gym bag slung over his shoulder and a book in his hands. As he read with his back to the station wall, “all of a sudden someone whacked me on the back of the head really hard,” he recalls.

Remember those annoying ads? See it. Say it.? As a victim of a mugging on Cleveland’s RTA, I sincerely feel for this guy. If I had been there, I would have intervened. I do not give two shits whether the kids are 11 or 12. Some people may not want to get involved, especially if these young thugs have litigious parents. But one can intervene to stop stupid stuff like this, and if the kids escalate it, issue some defensive justice. Odds are, they’ll run away before the cops come.

But nobody helped? Nobody? I’m not saying kick the crap out of thug kids or throw them on the tracks, but nobody did anything?

While I don’t take Metro anymore, Washingtonians should step up and take back Metro from the crazies, the lying bums, and thug kids and young adults who make our system unpleasant to ride.

Are you with me?
