In NY: No Duty to Protect

(GunNews.com) — A man who was brutally stabbed by Brooklyn subway slasher Maksim Gelman two years ago had his negligence case against New York City dismissed in court, despite the fact that two transit officers had locked themselves in a motorman’s car only a few feet from him at the time of the attack.

Gelman stabbed Joseph Lozito in the face, neck, hands and head on an uptown 3 train in February 2011, after fatally stabbing four people and injuring three others in a 28-hour period. Lozito, a father of two and an avid martial arts fan, was able to tackle Gelman and hold him down, and Gelman was eventually arrested by the transit officers.

Lozito sued the city, arguing that the police officers had locked themselves in the conductor’s car and failed to come to his aid in time.

The city claimed that the NYPD had no “special duty” to intervene at the time, and that they were in the motorman’s car because they believed Gelman had a gun.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Margaret Chan sided with the city, noting that there was no evidence the cops were aware Lozito was in danger at the time.

  1. Creo que te hubiera salido mejor llevarlo a una de esas tiendas de Paquistaní y en estos momentos tendrías tú móvil en la mano, quien sabe a lo mejor te hubiera salido más barato que en bendito seguro ese, por lo menos no hubieras pasado la rabia que estás pasando por el mal servicio de esta empresa. Respondele que por ley todas las substituciones y reparaciones con un coste elevado le pertocan a ella, ya sean de la nevera del aire acondicionado incluso de las persianas.
