Man Attacks Wife With Meat Cleaver


Authorities say the man and woman were arguing in front of Fong's Trading at 74 Canal Street around 10:24 a.m. when two firemen from Engine Company 9, Ladder Company 6, which is station across the street, saw the argument and tried to help.

The deranged man then allegedly pulled out a meat cleaver and began hacking at his wife.[More...]

She is in critical condition but is expected to survive.

5 I don't know who this guy is. For some reason names, races, etc: are always held a few days before giving them out.
However, this was done in Chinatown. Two to one the hacker is a recent immigrant whose dream of the American dream didn't work out.

7 two lines from the article:
the woman who has been identified as Jinyia You, 24.A witness tells Fox 5 the man kept screaming "she's my wife."
The cleaver was offering traditional marriage counseling appropriate for the culture of rural China. The firefighters were race normalizing their perceptions and revealing their cultural bias, forcing their behaviors on Others in an act of white male imperialism. EROWMER is right and hateful Firefighter Jose Ortiz (as of today a "white hispanic") is going to jail.

9 Re 6:The psychology of such situations is not a desire to kill but to assault. A gun offers less scope forvisceraal expression. If he had had a gun he would still have used the cleaver.

10 I think he was converting to islam. He was trying to separate her dirty head from her dirty heart.
