I never get out of the way of people taking pictures in public. If you are taking pictures where I am then you must consider me part of the scenery.
 
2013-03-02 12:27:07 PM
Meh, its just a crazy person. We have plenty of those. She should consider herself lucky she wasn't on a train platform!

Has New York grown so tame that a random beating delivered upon a tourist makes news?
 
2013-03-02 12:28:53 PM
biatches be gettin' truculent again

You really should not let anger build up inside you.  This is what happens.

Tourists are a necessary evil
 
2013-03-02 12:30:59 PM
The impact was so great, it knocked the shoes off of her.

Infernalist: Has New York grown so tame that a random beating delivered upon a tourist makes news?


It's not anywhere near the 80's where every block some random weirdo offered you drugs or sex.

Now that's done by Mickey Mouse.

Only if you are a blonde beauty from Siberia.
 
2013-03-02 12:33:40 PM
FTFA:  Sources said a 34-year-old blonde beauty from Serbia was focusing her lens on Broadway and W. 46th St. at 1:20 p.m. when Washington state tourist Deanne Ostbye, 30, allegedly went berserk and attacked, knocking her victim to the ground, according to sources.


When will tourist on tourist crime end?

Stop the madness!

Reason 4,354,839,014 to stay the hell out of NY.
 
2013-03-02 12:33:54 PM
At first I was all...

Police cuffed at the scene the woman who attacked the other and pushed her to the ground at the scene, but apparently no arrests were made.

But then I...

Ostbye was cuffed and charged with reckless endangerment and assault, police said.

?
 
2013-03-02 12:34:30 PM
Or Serbia even
 
2013-03-02 12:34:39 PM
You can tell the attacker is a tourist, she's wearing a cheesy NY sweatshirt that she just bought from a street cart.
 
2013-03-02 12:34:48 PM
I would like to insert my penis into every orifice of all three women in those photos.

Only tourists can prevent tourist on tourist violence.

So tourist on tourist beating? when I lived in florida that was a good thing.

Infernalist: Has New York grown so tame that a random beating delivered upon a tourist makes news?


Yeah, it pretty much has.  It's too expensive for the small-time criminals to live in Manhattan any more, the big-time ones have pushed them out.

And the big-time criminals (aka Wall Street) aren't interested in mugging tourists, there's no real profit in that.

New York:we're so tough we can't smoke in our bars or order a pitcher of soda at our kids' birthday parties. Let's go Yankees!
 
2013-03-02 12:37:56 PM
They both look like tourists.
 
2013-03-02 12:38:37 PM

duckpoopy: I never get out of the way of people taking pictures in public. If you are taking pictures where I am then you must consider me part of the scenery.


Exactly.  As soon as I realized I was part of the tourist attraction, I started walking through them on purpose.  Hell, I used to photo bomb people in Grand Central.
 
2013-03-02 12:38:49 PM
But the victim was a pretty blonde lady, while her attacker has some ethnicity about her. It's exactly the type of story that I would expect from The Daily News.

/Hitting tourists is wrong
//Elbows and shoulder checks are okay though
///Get the fark out the way!
 
2013-03-02 12:39:59 PM
So let me get this straight. New Yorkers say they live in the greatest city in the world and wont shut the fark up about it, yet they hate having people actually come and see it? What a bunch of tards.
 
2013-03-02 12:40:26 PM
That's not what "I'd hit it!" is supposed to mean!


/I'd hit it.
 
2013-03-02 12:41:36 PM
First of all it was just a tourist fighting another tourist, and for me anyways worse because it was an American attacking someone from another country (crazy Americans!). My thing is why complain about tourists blocking the sidewalk? In Boston the Bostonians suck because they can't walk or stay to one side. The people who live here are worse than the tourists. The visitors come here and spend money into the economy so I have no problems with them.
 
2013-03-02 12:41:38 PM
I would throw that smirking coont in prison for 10 years or so for that shiat.  You cant go around beating random people because you dont like them taking pictures.  Plus that is no way to treat visitors to our country.
 
2013-03-02 12:41:56 PM
The way I read it; they are both tourists. My money would have been on the Serbian blonde; if she had seen the frumpy brunette coming. But, alas; she did not.
 
2013-03-02 12:42:11 PM
Tourist violence in New York. It needs to stop. This is Bloomberg's 9/11
 
2013-03-02 12:42:47 PM

what_now: You can tell the attacker is a tourist, she's wearing a cheesy NY sweatshirt that she just bought from a street cart.


No, it just means she's poor. You can buy 5 of them for like 10 dollars.

I used to do that when I was broke in college.
 
2013-03-02 12:43:38 PM
Thread needs more hot blond Serbian women.
 
2013-03-02 12:43:53 PM
She is a hero for disabling the ferigner terrist before she could get photos to plan her bomb attacks.

I love my $5 I heart New York shirts from Battery Park.
 
2013-03-02 12:46:07 PM
Is this it? Have the tourists finally turned on each other? Can I finally walk down the street without having to worry that the person in front of me may suddenly just stop in their tracks to look at a paper (paper?!) map?
 
2013-03-02 12:46:34 PM

lucksi: The impact was so great, it knocked the shoes off of her.


That's not her shoe though. If you look at the picture at the bottom of TFA she has both her boots on and there's a lone Ugg boot, a travel bottle of listerene, and a pink fleece in the foreground.
 
2013-03-02 12:47:52 PM
Somehow, I expect that there is more to the story than is contained in TFA.

I can't believe she was not arrested.  The woman's head is all bleeding.
 
2013-03-02 12:51:42 PM
FTFA: "The other woman reportedly hit the photographer in the back of the head and knocked her into the ground."

how do you knock someone into the ground? were they mega-fighting, like the transformers, or a superhero/supervillain bout?

Even the assault scenes here have branding deals with UGG and Listerene.

She kinda looks like one of the Fly Girls on Living Color.
 
2013-03-02 12:53:46 PM
That was a pretty significant head wound, all over someone taking pictures? F*ck NYC
 
2013-03-02 12:54:35 PM
As a tourist currently in NYC I'm getting a kick

Lollipop165: Meh, its just a crazy person. We have plenty of those. She should consider herself lucky she wasn't on a train platform!


now that would be ironic...a tourist taking a picture of an approaching subway train on a platform, getting pushed into oncoming train....while a NY Daily News photographer takes a picture.

This has yet to be blamed on video games, or the mainstream media making ethnic women resentful toward skinny blondes?

She's representing Washington state.
