NY Subway Rider Who Shot Assailant With His Own Gun Won’t Face Charges

[ad_1] In a welcome departure from a pattern in which self-defenders and intervening good Samaritans are made into criminals, a man who disarmed his assailant on a New York subway train on Thursday and shot him in the head with his own gun isn’t facing any charges, the Brooklyn district attorney’s office has announced.    “The investigation into this tragic incident is ongoing,” said DA spokesman Oren Yaniv on Friday, “but, at this stage, evidence of self-defense precludes us from filing any criminal charges against the shooter.” Dajuan Robinson (left) was shot with his own gun by Younece Obuad in the latest episode of NYC subway bloodshed (via New York Post) Thursday’s A-train mayhem — which also appears to include a stabbing of the assailant by a third-party — was captured on cell phone video. It shows 36-year-old Dajuan Robinson, a black man, standing and hovering menacingly over seated 32-year-old Younece Obuad, and issuing a stream of threats and racial hatred that spanned minutes…   “I’ll beat you up…fuck you…fuck your kind…fuck your race…do something about …

‘Excluded from justice’: court prevents family of victim from addressing assailant | Youth justice

[ad_1] The brother of a man who died after being assaulted in his own home has said he has been “excluded from justice” after magistrates barred him from court on the grounds that his presence would put the teenage attacker under “undue stress”.
