Woman Sexually Attacked on Philadelphia-Region Train, As Fellow Riders Just Watch

Fewer police around and those that are still on the job don't much want to get involved with crime.

Media shrieks when citizens are pressed into enforcing the law themselves.

Let's see if they like it any better when citizen cowards just watch a women get r@ped for eight minutes.

As a woman was being raped while on a train near Philadelphia on Wednesday night, riders watched, failed to intervene and did not call 911, the authorities said.

A man whom officials identified as Fiston Ngoy sat down next to a woman at about 10 p.m. on a train that was traveling westbound on the Market-Frankford Line toward the 69th Street Transportation Center. Mr. Ngoy "attempted to touch her a few times," said Andrew Busch, a spokesman for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, known as SEPTA.

The woman pushed back and tried to stop Mr. Ngoy from touching her, Mr. Busch said. "Then, unfortunately, he proceeded to rip her clothes off," Mr. Busch said on Sunday.

The assault lasted about eight minutes, and no passengers in the train car intervened, the authorities said.

"I'm appalled by those who did nothing to help this woman," Timothy Bernhardt, the superintendent of the Upper Darby Township Police Department, said on Sunday.

"Anybody that was on that train has to look in the mirror and ask why they didn't intervene or why they didnít do something."

And what if they had stepped in to punch and kick a homeless man with minority POC status? Would they be praised, or would they be treated as racist Karens?

These people are horrible cowards and hardly any better than the attacker themselves, but I can't help thinking the vile left's campaign to demoralize the citizenry to make them obedient, inactive zombies of the God-State is going even better than they'd hoped.

Free men are willing to act, knowing they are free. Unfree men wonder whose permission they have to secure , and which judges will judge them after, before lifting a finger.

24 And I am reminded, on this holy day, of the sad story of Kitty Genovese. As you all may remember, a long time ago, almost thirty years ago, this poor soul cried out for help time and time again, but no person answered her calls. Though many saw, no one so much as called the police. They all just watched as Kitty was being stabbed to death in broad daylight. They watched as her assailant walked away.

Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

Would I intervene? I don't know. I wasn't there. But this would indeed go through my mind. "This is a minority with higher status than me. It doesn't matter that he's actively engaged in a violent crime. The risks to me are two-fold. First, there is physical risk in intervening (I could get hurt or killed), but beyond that my life is likely to be destroyed if I do so. A Soros DA is going to throw the book at me, I will be doxxed, I will lose my job, I will lose any money I have, my family will be destroyed and my life will be over because I'm suddenly a racist flexing my white privilege on a subway. Is it worth it?"

I don't know how I would answer that last question. I hope I don't have to find out.

Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at October 18, 2021 12:34 PM (KXV4L)

53 Yep. My thinking exactly when I heard about this.

Technically rape is one of the crimes that if being committed someone can shoot the rapist as it's considered that heinous a crime that the death of the perpetrator is approved. But that's what the law says. It might not be what winds up happening.

Plus how do you evaluate a situation like that. Most people on public transportation are there because they have to be. They have no other means of transportation. So they try to ignore everyone and everything else going on. Some may not have realized what was happening for a few minutes and how could they know what preceeded it? Maybe they're kinky couple and doing it for the thrill. Even if that's farfetched what person would take the risk in doing anything? The guy could've turned on them and started in on them if they interfered. And without a gun or edged weapon there's no way they could come out without injury.

And if they were white? (well unlikely in most places around Philly) forget about any facts being used in your favor.

55 I remember reading a story out of Britain a few years back where a toddler drowned in a back yard fountain or such. A man who was walking by did nothing because he was afraid of being mistaken for a child predator.

That situation and the Philly one above are awful, but also a glittering example of how Karens and their ilk have had serious negative impacts on behaviors that were, for hundreds of years, normal and necessary for civil society.

Who are we to judge the actions of others?

I say all of that darkly tongue-in-cheek.

Society has been beaten into not believing their eyes or their gut instincts. Eyes witnessed what was clearly going on. Gut instinct was to intervene. But they have all been forced to wear the rate-cage-face-mask for so long they will ignore all of that and instead do abso-let'sgo-lutely nothing.

They have been taught that intervention would yield absolutely no positive result, and they believe it.

I doubt most urbans have gamed this out, so they freeze and die every day after with regrets as a result.

68 Courage is not a natural trait for most people. We are hardwired to stick to the tribe and follow its behavior. If the tribe runs, we run, if the tribe fights, we fight. This is why militaries spend so much time teaching soldiers how to fight, and how to respond without thinking. It's also why it is vitally important that the culture itself continue to push a message of the importance of courage, self-sacrifice, etc. Unfortunately the latter is gone from western culture, while the former is declining in favor of sexual assault training and racist socialist agitprop.

This is exactly what the media is hoping to provoke. The only people who are going to care about such a thing are the kind of people reading this article. No one on that train cared or would care about being shamed. It's meant to shame YOU and all the white supremacisty white people you live and work with who do nothing because of your privilege about these horrid crimes going unchecked every day.

This is black people doing what black people do to each other in a neighborhood run by black people voted for by the black people being victimized.

87 I have nothing good to say about Philadelphia, or its people.

Ever been to their airport? Hard "I want to kill you" stares from every single employee. Nothing but surly, open contempt on their faces.

Posted by: Taqiyyologist, Rickrolled by Jesus at October 18, 2021 12:39 PM (OssQ4)

88 Philly is violent and dirty in my limited experience. It is like the reverse of how most cities used to be. Most cities were okay with occasional islands awful. Philly was awful with occasional islands of good.

When I toured Temple University, they (like all other colleges) have those emergency police beacons where you hit the button and it connects you to the campus police dispatch if you need help. The difference was that Temple had a *lot* of them - way more than most places. I asked why on the tour. The tour guide had a nice spin on it: "We have so many so that if you're being pursued, you can hit them as you go and the computer system at the police department will track and predict your routes so we can deploy officers to intercept you."

There's no way to spin that as a good thing...

96 From an article on Roman virtues:
The Latin word for virtus can be translated as manliness or excellence. In this capacity, the term can refer to any of the virtues. However, the word virtus can also be viewed as courage. The quality of courage falls within the framework of constantia. Without constantia, courage is impossible. Being resolute in goals prevents cowardice and harmful self-doubt. Standing firm in one's goals also provides self-esteem, it adds to a sense of personal worth. It provides purpose and meaning to life and allows for unforeseen opportunities.

I love the way the Reds keep pushing public transit, although this kind of crap happens all too often on public transit.

Even BART now has this problem. When BART opened, it was great. Now, at least as I've read, it's a battlefield. BART train pulls into a station in the hood, 30 yutes pile on and shake down/assault passengers, then get off at the next station.

174 Jacob Blake was armed with a knife, attacking a woman, when police used force to stop him. The police officer's life was ruined, Kenosha burned, and Jacob Blake's name is now plastered on NFL helmets as a hero and role model. Why would I dare to stop such a hero? I'd lose my job and become a famous cable news villain, while the guy I stopped would get a national holiday named for him.

175 Oh, a bystander could intervene, say in Waco, Texas, but it would be suicidal (both to reputation and possibly physically) to intervene in Philadelphia, which has the original Soros-funded DA, Larry Krasner.

Anyone who attacked the rapist would be criminally charged, have to take out a second mortgage on his home to pay his criminal defense attorney, watch his reputation get dragged through the mud by the local media, and maybe get Julie Kelly to write an article about the defendant after languishing in jail for several months.

this was filmed and there is footage out there (I don't want to look at it) but she was RESISTING so not sure how one might have not gotten that she was being attacked?!?!

that said this was not a nice ... place

no matter how convenient, there is no way I would EVER take the El or the subway nowadays. NOPE

also I intervened in a mugging when I lived in town. I didn't even think about it. I saw the girl on the ground with a guy pulling off her purse and kicking her in the stomach. me and this other guy - both walking home from work - just went running (I also yelled at the guy)

207 I'm really sorry for the woman, but I'll say it up front: I wouldn't have done anything either. Why get involved when the chances are high that YOU get in trouble? What does anyone think will happen if an adult white male uses physical force on what is almost certainly a minority and injures him? Or even kills him? THAT WHITE MALE IS GOING TO JAIL. This is leftwing Philly. Even calling 9-11 could get you in trouble. Ask that white lady in Central Park who called 9-11 on a black man who was threatening her and her dog. She lost her job over it. I wish we didn't live in a world like this, but we do. I think all woman should carry mace or otherwise be able to defense themselves. They should not count on anyone coming to their defense.

It's a horrific situation.

Think a lot of the responses are not about being uncaring, simply a recognition that over recent years we have seen a number of huge media stories centered on demonizing someone who rightly or wrongly attempted to intervene, including Trayvon (citizen intervention), Michael Brown (cop), various Karen-style videos, and so on. There is always a camera and a media/social media mob there to attack the designated "bad guy".

Mr Public claimed that the Asian man was attempting to assault a woman - the same ugly sort of claim that led to many POC being lynched in the south. The police have confirmed there have been no rape reports filed.

but I certainly do understand why people don't want to get involved

in a situation like this you'd need more than just yourself - you're probably surrounded by people who (if you are white and the rest of the train are not) will attack YOU instead of helping. you'd have to somehow make sure you weren't alone in helping first, eye contact, nods, something. in my case the guy who ran with me and helped her was black and thank god he was there. the mugger was violent AND he was armed. I was being brave but also stupid (as he told me later).

From wiki:

However, public opinion about Goetz wavered due to statements and alleged damaging details of the incident that later were released by the prosecution. Goetz was then re-indicted by a second grand jury on more serious charges. At a later jury trial he was found guilty of one count of carrying an unlicensed firearm, for which he served eight months of a one-year sentence"

242 I've often thought about this while riding the NYC subway, especially over the last year while I've had to ride probably the worst line, the 4-5-6 into the Bronx. What do you do if you see something happening. I guess yelling at the person is ther easiest way to maybe stop them, or at least get others to also join in, but what if it doesn't? Do I clock them over the head with the sap I have on my keys, or stab them in the neck with my NYC company knife? Because in nyc either thing, despite being legal, can still get me sued or even arrested. Do I run full speed and try and kick the person's head into the wall? Hoping I don't miss and now have to wrestle with a crazy person with their dick out? You've got the remember these people don't give a shit, if they're in the midst of raping someone, or assaulting someone, they aren't going to think twice about stabbing you too.

It's easy to criticize those watching (it's easier in Philadelphia since most watching are fellow criminals who were just waiting their turn) But as you said it's the reaction to governments cutting cops, giving sainthood to criminals and only throwing the book at those who do the right thing. 1/2

I once saw an experiment where they placed an obviously traumatized young girl in a door way and observed peoples reaction. Men not only would not interact with the girl, most would not even acknowledge her presence. When interviewed the men said they were afraid of being mistaken for a child predator.

252 In 1921 if a guy physically beat the sh*t out of a would be rapist on a train he'd get a medal from the town and a glowing article in the local paper.

In 2021 if you get in a fight with a minority homeless guy attempting to rape a woman at *best* you'll get to go home after a long talk with the police and at worst you'll be the next George Zimmerman.


Additionally, most of us don't carry on a commuter train because our workplace would fire us if we got caught with a gun. So I'm supposed to wrassle with a homeless guy? Most of those assholes have knives on them at a minimum. Now I'm unarmed, in a fight with a crazy asshole with a knife, and if he bites me, I'm getting some new disease they'll name after me.

I'm seeing a ton of downsides to this.

And all the local stations do is say "SFPD or SacPD or San JosePD are asking for you assistance..." yet never once describe the perp, after interviewing the victim and a dozen witnesses. Nope.

But I did *have* a gun, and no CCW. Now, in CO, that wasn't a big deal back then. A misdemeanor. But the cops hate you for it. So the awful Arapahoe County DA (Carol Chambers, Republican), dug up a damned terrorism provision to hit me with, for the freaking bullets. "Possession of an explosive device in a public transit facility," she said.

282 There was a time where a man should never have been vilified upon his death just because his politics differed from yours. Normally, Colin Powell's death could have been marked as sad and regretful by one and all.

But unfortunately, politics now includes the left's struggle to dominate and subjugate those who disagree - to torture the populace. And the results on society can be seen in this rape incident on the train, and other real incidents of violence everywhere. And Powell's politics helped the current situation along willingly, as these folks do in all murderous, evil regimes of the past. They are needed, in fact, to facilitate it...and thus Powell doesn't get the respect a normal man of politics deserves...because he deserves none of it and that is sad.

317 Thankfully, most of us won't see any stuff like this because we don't live in Blue Cities. We live in American cities far from the dregs and dopes that gather in the Blue Cities and are run by Blue Democrats who are only in it for the grift.

Just look at a county map of the us by who voted for Trump and you can see where the real america is. Unfortunately the larger number of people live in the Blue areas and vote for what they know.

Rather than divide the country the Red counties should surround the Blue spots with chain link and border guards. Much cheaper that way. The Democrats might even go along with it for a while.

While I understand Soros is pushing several NGOs that want Law of the Jungle to begin right at dark, most moderate Dems, like Biden, want to hold the line at 10pm each night. But Sinema and Manchin think midnight is the proper, traditional time for the Philly Wildtimes to begin. Won't know which time will control until after the Build Back Better bill actually passes.

Only fight I was ever in was in middle school in the 70's when I stood up to a bully. We both got sentenced to five strokes with a paddle. When I took the permission slip home, my parents said I'd done the right thing but I had to accept the school punishment, too.

I only wound up getting one swat. The bully got all five.

But a bunch of people on a train are "cowards," because they aren't armed and dont intervene?

Here's a better question... Why isn't EVERYONE armed as the police are (make is a requirement for EVERY HUMAN - FELONS TOO - because protecting YOURSELF is YOUR responsibility), and why isnt the victim responsible for protecting themselves? Especially being that their the only person guaranteed to be there in the moment something happens.

Call the cops... go ahead they likely won't be on the scene if they respond for hours. Go the legal route... good luck finding an attorney that will be aggressive to defend you and win. Threaten the perp directly... go directly to jail. Threaten the bureaucrats with any type of retaliatory action... go directly to jail.

I was helping to coach a youth football team when one boy broke his arm. The head coach asked me to take the boy to the ER. In principle, I'd be happy to, but it would be better to get one of the moms there to do it. Be alone with a kid? No dice.

382 Here in Indy, I personally witnessed a cop trying to ticket a double-parked car downtown. The cop (white) gave the driver (POC) a chance to cooperate and move his car and the driver told him to f-off. When the cop started writing the ticket, the driver started yelling and summoning a mob of other POCs to surround the officer and make threats. Another cop arrived, told his co-worker that discretion was the better part of valor, and both retreated. The car never moved.

Absent threat of immediate physical harm, there is no way I would approach a child alone. No. Not even in public.

There was a situation a few years ago where I witnessed something very similar and my first thought was that it was an experiment, not that it was real. I still went and tracked down a mall security guard to help and when he asked for my name and contact info, I refused to give it. Nope. Not getting involved, not at all.

Posted by: Romeo13 at October 18, 2021 12:28 PM (oHd/0)

That is only half of it.
This is the generation that was also taught in school that violent assaults are merely "bullying", and that such are equally, if not totally, the responsibility of the victim, who must understand and apologize to the attacker just as much as the attacker must acknowledge that the victim may not have enjoyed the experience.
Further, the attacker is entitled to just as much compensation and support as the victim in order to move beyond the incident, if not more.

Now those bullies have grown up and expect to be compensated when they rapebully and murderbully people because their victims offended them by being attractive or having stuff.

401 "These people are horrible cowards and hardly any better than the attacker themselves"

James Scurlock killed himself because Democrats hounded him after he protected his father from the mob

The Ahmaud Arbery case -- They're treated as a KKK death squad who targeted an innocent "jogger." They might have been out of line in some respects, maybe it's wrong to chase down suspected thieves, just let them get away. But the point is that they are demonized.

Jonathan Pentland told a groper to get out of his neighborhood -- this was turned into a "white devil enforces racial segregation, says no blacks allowed in his neighborhood" when he was just a guy responding to a groper

Kyle Rittenhouse was protecting his community and only fired in self-defense against people trying to murder him. Look at how he is being treated, he is being offered up as human sacrifice.

No, it's not cowardly to let democrats get what they voted for. 92% chance that woman voted for this. It's not cowardly to let people get what they voted for. It's DEMOCRACY.

If you're not in a rural area, anywhere, the answer is "yes."

The cops are just like any other government worker. So if you're in a big city, then they're highly likely to be petty & vindictive Commie goons, just like a teacher or a DMV employee.

In the case I mentioned upthread, one of the cops was totally cool, and backed me up. The other one wanted to throw the book at me. Guess who got his way?

Why I need to move to a "shall issue" state. Santa Clara Co. CA is a "shall not issue" pretty much. And, I watch channels like Police Activity and Active Self Protection. I've seen cops trying to handle homeless fucks. They're fucked up on meth, bath salts and who knows what else. They don't even notice a taser even when successfully deployed. And it's pretty rare that even one bullet will bring them down. So yeah, chances are you could try punching or even stabbing some fuck and all it's going to do is piss him off even more.

502 I don't disagree that shooting someone is a vastly better solution than fighting them. But the circumstances that justify deadly force, as opposed to force, are different even in yahoo jurisdictions like my own (Texas). And if the authorities are going to hassle you about what constitutes reasonable use of force, you can be sure they will about reasonable use of deadly force too. So, while it's a better solution in the moment, it's going to pose all the same problems afterward. I can't even imagine the world of shit a passenger could get into in a blue city for popping someone on mass transit.

It's gonna take a cycle of starvation and mass murder before people get the picture. Then those solutions will have to fail for awhile before the Democrats lose the will to keep killing. I think forty years is probably the low end. But I know how this story plays out.

522 I don't disagree that shooting someone is a vastly better solution than fighting them. But the circumstances that justify deadly force, as opposed to force, are different even in yahoo jurisdictions like my own (Texas).


Any punches about the head and neck area are considered deadly force. Ask Kenny Tavai. Oh wait. You can't. He was shot while punching Gordon Hale in the head during a traffic stop in 96.

I used to think that 40 years was about right - time enough that I'd be gone when it happened. But I have been astounded at the massive acceleration that has taken place in every bad trend over the last 18 months - that is changing everything.

and the rate of change of the rate of change is increasing the most. You could call it a snowball rolling downhill.

563 Also consider: Jacob Blake had a knife, there was a car with 3 kids in it, he was threatening to drive away with the kids. Police shot him, non-fatally, and they were demonized.

If you intervene against a criminal, you will be demonized. It doesn't matter if the circumstances justify your actions. Democrats can look up your old emails, facebook posts, there could be 1 random woman who went to high school with you who claims you groped her after prom. Who can prove truth/falsity at this point.

If you make yourself a target, you can be destroyed. Yes, true courage is willingness to step up despite consequences/odds. But no one can be called a coward because they reserve their courage for things that matter.

Democrat women want to pass rules that make it easier for transgender people to rape your kids. they voted for laws to let rapists out of jail early. They voted for prosecutors who undercharge or don't charge at all. They voted for the scumbag rapist to be out on the streets. Every bad thing that happens to us, they think it's funny. Let them suffer.

564 Several years ago, I had to run to Walmart at about 10 pm. This was before I had a CCW. As I got out of my car, I heard a young, college age, woman screaming. She was a tiny Asian woman and her boyfriend had a hold of her by the arm twisting her arm and wouldn't let her go. Another male with them tried to tell me, "It's OK, he's her boyfriend. " I screamed at him to let her go in my best stern mother voice. Another guy called the cops. The abuser tried to run when the cops were pulling up, and I grabbed him by the back of his shirt and threw him up against a cart corral, even though I was fat/female/forty/five foot I was so pissed off and as a mom, if that had been my daughter I would have wanted someone to help her. My daughters both worked at Walmart at the time and they got a kick out of watching their Mamma on the security cameras the next day.
