Social media users still gave Klotz plaudits for intervening in the situation — and wished him a speedy recovery.
while the headline I just read, “viciously beaten by teens,” is true, it’s doing way more damage to my ego than the physical beating did— adam klotz (@AdamKlotzFNC) January 22, 2023
Sending well-wishes Adam.— dianafalzone (@dianafalzone) January 22, 2023
Dude, you did the right thing. Proud of you trying to help someone in trouble. 8-on-1 will never have a good result. Glad you’re okay…— Jeff Paul (@Jeff_Paul) January 22, 2023
We can laugh at this because, from all indications, Klotz will be fine. According to the Post, he was treated at Belleview Hospital for non-life threatening injuries and released. And he’s trying to find the humor in the situation. However, less humorous is the fact that New York City’s subways have become an increasingly dangerous place to be after state bail reform and eight years of Mayor Bill de Blasio running progressive experiments in Gotham. (It also doesn’t help that, just as de Blasio was leaving Gracie Mansion, Manhattan voters elected progressive District Attorney Alvin Bragg to continue those failed policies — even as new NYC Mayor Eric Adams has tried, not entirely with success, to reverse de Blasio’s soft-on-crime approach.) Most notably, in May of 2022, 48-year-old Goldman Sachs executive Daniel Enriquez was shot and killed on a Q train in Brooklyn.
You’re a good man Adam. You did the right thing. I’m so sorry this was the result of it though. Hope the recovery is quick and easy.— Ryan Breton (@RyanBretonWX) January 23, 2023
His alleged killer, Andrew Abdullah, had 19 prior arrests. Just a month before, a judge set him free on $1 bail in a theft case, despite his lengthy record and a request for $15,000 bail by a Brooklyn district attorney. And now, we have three juveniles who apparently will face virtually no consequences for pummelling a Fox News meteorologist who stood up for an elderly man they were harassing. Just another early Sunday morning in New York City, apparently. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
