Mobs beats up NYC cab driver, then beats up fare

Look, Brooklyn is hard, and we protect our own first and ask questions later. Don’t forget it.

Mark Frauenfelder:
Yesterday a cab driver in NYC hit an 8-year-old kid on a bike. Then the cabbie crashed into a wall, and a mob pulled him out of the car and beat him up. When the cab driver explained that he lost control of the car after his fare hit him in the head with a metal bar to rob him, the mob beat up the passenger and tightened a belt around his neck.
