While reading the comments in Saturday’s “Britain Has Lost Its Bloody Mind” post, RD mentioned a story about this despicable city and the despicable people who live here. A woman was raped on an elevated train Wednesday, and not one of the many witnesses intervened or even called 911. And people wonder why I want to leave this city.
A woman was raped Wednesday night on a Philadelphia train while bystanders nearby did nothing to help her, authorities said Friday.
Authorities arrested the suspect, 35-year-old Fiston Ngoy, at the 69th Street Transportation Center after a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) employee noticed the attack and called police, law enforcement officials said. Authorities believe Ngoy is homeless and did not know the victim.
I mentioned this on Saturday’s post, but it’s worth repeating; if Philadelphia is handling the job, this animal will likely get nothing more than probation. If Upper Darby (a Philly suburb) handles the job, this POS will get some serious jail time.
Timothy Bernhardt, Superintendent of the Upper Darby Police Department, reportedly said the rape was captured on security cameras and expressed shock that passengers on the train did not intervene or alert authorities.
“It’s disturbing that there were definitely people on the el and no one did anything to intervene or help this woman,” Bernhardt said. “The el” is a reference to Philadelphia’s elevated train line that runs between Upper Darby and the Frankford section of the city.
I’m truly embarrassed and ashamed of my fellow Philadelphians. The same people who claim they’re blue collar tough guys who don’t take any shite, are the same people who sat by and watched a woman get raped by a disgusting subhuman.
