A teen sustained a concussion after seven scofflaws jumped him at a Lafayette Avenue subway station on May 1, according to authorities.

The 14-year-old boy was sitting on the steps of the station when one of the nogoodniks called over his partners in crime and they started beating up the kid, punching and kicking him in the head and face at the Clinton-Washington Avenues station just before 4 p.m., police said. Paramedics rushed the teen to Kings County Hospital to treat him for his concussion, head trauma, and abrasions on his face, cops said.

Police have not made any arrests, according to a spokesman for the department.

@ Gracie Manson, It sounds like you have a problem with toxic masculinity.

No, I have a problem with how these people were raised, the lack of basic parenting, and how the liberals keep making excuses and giving them slaps on the wrist. Don’t blame it on masculinity. That’s just a feminist liberal cop out.

It sounds like you suffer from toxic masculinity as well. Please seek help post haste. Obamacare covers these sorts of afflictions, should you not currently be covered with healthcare. The life you save may be that of your spouse, lover, or child.

growing up min crown heights in the 1950's we were all poor. However we all respected each other. Fights were rare and only with fists. There were plenty of recreational activities available. PAL, NIGHT CENTERS, DAY CENTERS were available it helped socialize us. We respected our elders. Therefore it is shocking that our vulnernable seniors are being attacked.There is a general regard for age.When I ride the subway I very rarely see anybody offer a seat to the elderly or disabled. There is also an increase in both men and women blocking the door so they can use their devices.

I hope that these Closed circuit television surveillance cameras in that MTA subway station will be capturing those once and prospective crooks.

There is no such thing as toxic masculinity. Men were create4d men and women created women. Cut that communist nonsense out. We aren't fooled by your subversive nonsense. Btw, a conservative is a liberal who got mugged last week. Bring silent prayer back to the schools. Maybe our youth can once again learn decency and morals.

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
The concept of toxic masculinity is used in psychology and gender studies to refer to certain norms of masculine behavior in North America and Europe that are associated with harm to society and to men themselves. Traditional stereotypes of men as socially dominant, along with related traits such as misogyny and homophobia, can be considered "toxic" due in part to their promotion of violence, including sexual assault and domestic violence. Scholars[who?] argue that the socialization of boys often normalizes violence, such as in the saying "boys will be boys" with regard to bullying and aggression. Self-reliance and emotional repression are correlated with increased psychological problems in men such as depression, increased stress, and substance abuse. Toxic masculine traits are characteristic of the unspoken code of behavior among men in American prisons, where they exist in part as a response to the harsh conditions of prison life. Other traditionally masculine traits such as devotion to work, pride in excelling at sports, and providing for one's family, are not considered to be "toxic". The concept was originally used by authors associated with the mythopoetic men's movement such as Shepherd Bliss to contrast stereotypical notions of masculinity with a "real" or "deep" masculinity that they say men have lost touch with in modern society. Maybe read a book once in a while, prayer is for suckers.

No one is condoning criminal behavior. What we are critical of is the emasculation of men. Any extreme is bad including extreme feminism. Back to my wikipedia studies.
