On the heels of the video of a man beating customers at McDonald's with a metal rod comes more shocking video out of New York City. This one, taken on Monday afternoon, shows a man stabbing a homeless man in the neck as cops look on in horror.
"He just literally pulls out a pocket knife and starts stabbing the man in the neck like a couple of times," a witnessed told the New York Daily News about the attack that occurred in Harlem.
"He just kept saying, 'You owe me money! You owe me money,'" the witness added.
In the video, a bystander can be heard imploring the police. "Hit him with something! Hit him!" the person says. "He's stabbing him!"
The Daily News describes more of what happened:
About a dozen cops from the nearby 23rd Precinct stationhouse rushed to the scene, drawing their weapons and order the suspect to drop his knife even as he continued to stab the victim.
Four or five toddlers with their nannies were among the more than 20 people to witness the bloodshed in front of a synagogue and steps from two public schools and a day care center.
Police had no immediate comment on the attack. The names of the victim and suspects were not released.
The short video shows cops eventually stepping in and dragging the attacker off the victim, while the victim sits up visibly dazed.

By the way, are you, like me, wondering why the police didn't step in sooner or use nonlethal force (or even lethal) to stop the attack?
