@ Gerry, Is the video and photo not enough for you? You're a flimsy excuse for a human.

Will you stand up for the right of that woman to walk the streets without being assaulted?

Billy from Sunset Park says:
What a creep. Not many Yankee fans in Brooklyn--should be able to spot him eventually. I hope the woman has a husband or an older brother, and he gets some time alone with that coward. If he tries a wild roundhouse like that against a man, he will be on his back very quickly.
