    Macho, macho, men. All they want to be is macho men. Wow, grown men out terrorizing the neighborhood including beating up on women. And using knives? Mandatory stop and frisk that part of town at that time of night. Caught with a knife mandatory one year in County. Carrying a knife is not part of life no matter who you are or where you live. That is a sign of a sociopath and they don’t belong on the street, period.
