    Power-Saw Attack
    Thursday, July 06, 2006

    NEW YORK — A man grabbed two cordless power saws off a subway station workbench and went on a rampage Thursday, swinging the saws at riders and slicing open a man's chest before running away, police said.

    The 64-year-old victim, whose name was not released, was hospitalized in critical but stable condition. Police were searching for the suspect, described by witnesses as a thin man in his 30s, who had earrings in both ears and was possibly carrying a teddy bear.

    The attack occurred before dawn at a subway station a few blocks south of Columbia University.

    Wielding a saw in each hand, the man took a swipe at one rider on a platform and missed, police said. Moments later, he cut into the man's chest at a turnstile before bolting out of the station, still carrying the power tools, which were later found in a trash can.

    Police were reviewing security camera videotape.

    The attack came two weeks after a Boston man was charged with stabbing four people — three of them tourists — over a 13-hour period in the subway and the theater district in Manhattan.

    Time to BAN power saws in NYC!!!

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/07/06/sub...age/index.html

    When will the politicians learn?

    I guess it's time to ban power saws or anything that could possibly be used as a weapon run via batteries in New York.

    Once we ban everything and also ban any type of physical activity that could possibly end in and injury, we can feel safe and secure sitting in our recliners or beds at home....

    ... Until we get horrible sores.

    and was possibly carrying a teddy bear
    Seems like they too should be on the list for banishment - obviously a very bad and criminal influence!

    Keep trying to get the message thru to these anti's - ''weapon'' does not mean just a gun <sigh>

    Evenr regulated bears are involved in crimes. If this does not teach them, nothing will!

    UPDATE they caught the perp

    A Bronx man was arrested Thursday in connection with a portable power saw attack on another man in a Morningside Heights subway station early this morning.

    Investigators say 33-year-old Tareyton Williams has been charged with attacking a man at the Cathedral Parkway and 110th Street station around 3:30 a.m. Thursday.

    I guess everyone in NYC will have to go around naked from now on.

    No more artificial nails. End of spiked high heels. End of the fashion district.

    Oh wait.....gotta ban arms, hands, teeth, feet too

    When power saws are outlawed, only outlaws will have power saws.

    When teddy bears are outlawed, they will declare jihad and attack.
