I don't think that would ever happen. This is not 1898.

I say think.. so I'm not pretending I know otherwise.

Just getting tired of being afraid. I was on the subway and somebody got on.. sat behind me started screaming at me.ans getting close. I swear to God I felt like punching them. I was able to just get up and move to the next car.

Downvoted because as a woman, I want to defend myself against some screaming lunatic spitting in my ear so close to my back I was terrified.

People freaking suck.

This might not be the city for you. You sound like you’d feel a lot more comfortable living is some suburb far away.

I do not live in the city I live in New Jersey. Kind of in the country. But I've lived here in this area all my life. I come in constantly for dinner shows and then more dinners etc. I have friends who work in the city and live there as well. I don't think I should have to ever say for the first time in my life I don't feel safe on the subway and for the first time in my girlfriend's life she was assaulted. The answer is not telling her don't work here or telling me don't come here.

It really is the answer, or at least it's a better answer than you advocating to violate people's 4th and 5th amendment rights just so that you feel safer when you visit occasionally.
