It's not every day that a brawl makes the New York Post. Then again, New York City is becoming so gentrified that maybe a brawl is news these days.

I rather liked this article as it had an embedded video of the brawl. The footage clearly showed two average combatants exchanging punches. No decisive hits were scored and the fight did not go to the ground, although the combatants were grabbing each other while throwing their punches.

Two female cops ran up and quickly handcuffed both combatants without difficulty.

This brawl hand shibumi. It was simple, neatly packaged, and understated. Surely, New York City is now highly gentrified. Even their brawls are neat and refined.

This is news only because you can easily spot the stereotypes in the combatants.

Judging by that puddle it didn't turn out so well for him.

Remember this the next time somebody starts with the "but why did they have to shoot (X) times?"
