Police Are Looking For Man Who Beat Blind Man – Philadelphia police have released a surveillance video and are asking for the public’s help in bringing a man to justice. The video shows a 33 year old blind man being pushed from behind and then taking a bad beating. The attacker punched and kicked the man nearly a dozen times while he lay on the ground defenseless. The tape shows that there were bystanders near by who did nothing to help and waited until the beating was over to call police. The victim was robbed and suffered serious injuries to the face and head. Philly police chief Charles Ramsey is disgusted by bystanders these days who would rather record a video than call authorities. Police hope that anyone with information will come forward.
Update: The man has been caught

Cop In SUV Biker Brawl Gets Arrested – One of the NYPD officers present during the biker brawl that left a man beaten in front of his wife and child has been arrested. 32 year old Wojciech Braszczok was on a deep undercover assignment when the brawl took place. He turned himself in to authorities and was charged with riot and criminal mischief. Braszczok was off duty at the time and was caught on camera punching the SUV’s window ultimately shattering it. When he originally came forward he said that he was not involved in the riot at all but did admit to not calling authorities which is a problem because undercover officers are required to report being a witness to a crime. It’s not clear why he was riding with the bikers in the first place but he’ll make his first appearance in court next Wednesday.
