Wanted for being a racist attacker

Transit Police report they are looking for a guy who hurled racial slurs at a woman and her one-year-old child on a Red Line train between Kendall and Park Street - and when that wasn't enough, threw a glass bottle at them.

Happened shortly before 11 a.m. on Nov. 5, police say.

If the alleged asshole looks familiar, contact detectives at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymous tip to 873873.

When found, he will face a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon as well as civil-rights charges, police say.

There is a lot of hate riding the rails these days. When haters ride they have to be arrested and judges must hold them with no bail until they go to trial.

Please study the legal principles that govern bail.

Not all people who ignore the T's mask rule are violent shitbags, but all violent shitbags on the T also ignore the mask rule

As a daily T rider I have also observed that not all people who ignore the mask rule are addicts and/or mentally ill but all, and I mean ALL addicts and/or mentally ill ignore the mask rule. Or are so far gone they don't know of it's existence. This group has a very large presence on the trains and especially in stations, such as North Station and Bowdoin where they have set up housekeeping. And it's why I have to sadly chuckle when anyone suggests that the T enforce the mask rule. Exactly how do you tell this at-risk population to wear a mask and keep it on?

Based on present evidence, suspect asshole may have recently visited a CVS near the Red line probably behind the direction of the train.

I'm going to guess the one at Central and would be showing pictures there.

And if not, did it shatter? I'm reminded of Die Hard:

No. We're not making jokes about this one.

We're not. I'm sincere in my wish to see a hate victim fight back with force.

...should not depend on victims' ability to "fight back with force", particularly when they have a child in tow.

It shouldn't.

When you're ready to join me in reality, HMU.
