Well, I definitely owe some people major apologies. As I usually do, My mouth was engaged before my brain. I missed the point of the story entirely. The cab driver probably was defending himself and had every right to do what he did. Unfortunately, he didn't damage them more. I would have. And that's why I no longer go to the Palisades Mall. Sorry for the screw-up.

Thanks Robin - but it seems something is missing. FYI I was a cab driver many years ago (not that it matters) but....

Two comments.....it most other communties this would be considered a crime and people would be arrested.....I wonder if those involved were not named Gilberto Ramos, of Nanuet and Jaieem Webb, of Spring Valley but instead Sean Kelly of New City and Sam Goldstein of West Nyack if arrests would have been made? And second, I now know why Clarkstown ranks in the top 10 of safe cities in the USA.....just don't make arrests and report the crimes.

Bruce, I am not sure where you live but yes a person does have a right to defend themselves but not the right to stab someone......that is why we havethe Police, DA and Courts so this type of action is adjudicated by the proper authorities and does not occur in a civil society. I hope this is not the future of how crime will be handled in Clarkstown?
