The Facts

  • A 40-year old Asian-American woman was killed in an unprovoked attack on Saturday morning, pushed in front of an approaching New York subway train.

  • In his initial public remarks on the incident, Mayor Eric Adams assured residents that the subway system is safe and that the real issue was "fighting the perception of fear."

The Spin

Right narrative

Violent crime is soaring because of Democratic politicians' woke policies on crime and prosecution, including Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's measures to downgrade some crimes from felonies to misdemeanors.

Left narrative

The rise in violent crime reveals a crisis in how the city helps homeless and mentally ill. What's needed isn't more policing, but more support for the vulnerable.
