Tell your grandparents to stay out of New York!
Because apparently the police there have it out for the elderly!
An 84-year-old man was hospitalized on Sunday after a run in with the law that left his face a bloody mess! Just look at that picture (above)!
OMG! Poor guy!
So what did Kang Wong do that caused cops to rough him up this hard?!
He was jaywalking!
Srsly, NYPD?! No, really. Srsly?!
Wong was reportedly crossing 96th Street when an officer stopped him for illegally walking against the light. Cops have been cracking down on jaywalking in the area after three people were struck and killed by cars just this month!
But eyewitnesses say Wong didn’t understand what the officer who approached him was saying, and tried to walk away. That’s when several police arrived at the scene and apprehended Mr. Wong, leaving him with several cuts on his head!
His son, who happens to be a lawyer, now says they’ll probably press charges against the department.
We realize the police were really just doing their job and looking out for a citizen’s safety. But that picture doesn’t lie!
When an 84-year-old is bleeding from his head, the situation has definitely crossed way too far over the thin blue line!
