Barry Borgen, whose son was brutally beaten on Times Square in broad daylight by four men shouting racial slurs, has spoken out against Chuck Schumer and Jerry Nadler for ignoring the rampant crime problem in New York City. Democrats ignore it and many deny it despite the numbers and the vast number of people fleeing NYC mainly to Florida. Borgen claims that had either one made a public statement about this hate crime justice might have been served.
Borgen’s son was beaten by four men including Waseem Awawdeh, Mahmoud Musa, Faisal Elezzi, and Mohammed Othman. Borgen spoke on Monday at the House Judiciary Committee’s hearing regarding victims of violent crime in Manhattan.
“Mr. Nadler, you’re a Jewish New Yorker. I called your office numerous times. I called Mr. Schumer’s office, another Jewish New Yorker, numerous times. No one called us back.”
“You’re a Jewish New Yorker. You have Jewish roots here. Behavior like this enables DA [Alvin] Bragg to just do whatever he wants to do. If you guys would have come out with a statement from Washington and said that we condemn the beating of Mr. Borgen’s son, we condemn this act, maybe Mr. Bragg would have taken this case a little more seriously.”
“And I call you out on it. Most of my friends are so disheartened with you and Mr. Schumer you don’t understand. We wouldn’t vote for Mr. Schumer again … And if I lived in Manhattan I wouldn’t vote for you either.”

Joey Borgen is the son who was beaten and he says he recalls them saying “dirty Jew” and yelling, “F*** Israel, Hamas is going to kill all of you.” Awawdeh allegedly told a jailer after the attack, “If I could do it again, I would do it again. I have no problem doing it again.” Bragg offered him a six-month plea deal. Bragg seems to care about the criminals more than the victims. Borgen;s story was not the only one to complain about the lack of prosecutions in deadly cases, He is too busy prosecuting for crimes that don’t exist.
“It’s disgusting how Mr. Bragg calls himself a crime fighter, the man does nothing,” Barry Borgen said. “He offered people who tried to kill my son six months in jail, one guy to walk away because maybe he hit him once. It is a hate crime.”
“[The light sentence] shows that it’s open season on anybody, be it an Asian, an African-American, Jewish, Muslim,” Barry Borgen continued. “It’s basically open season. If you can’t prosecute, put people away for a hate crime, I don’t know what else is there besides murder, God forbid. It’s just disgusting, it’s not right.”
“I feel like I have a target on my back sometimes, but it’s getting better and better,” Joey Borgen, who sustained a concussion from the attack, said. “Hopefully the DA does their job and brings accountability and justice to everyone who deserves it.”
Crime in New York City is not really bad. It is a vicious rumor spread by three million victims.
