He Should Have Worn the Ribbon

New York Magazine's Daily Intel blog linked to the harrowing tale of a mugged Brooklyn subway rider:
A subway dance troupe turned militant on May 25 when the dancers viciously mugged a 22-year-old straphanger on the J train... One of the perps asked the victim if he would like to “see something mesmerizing.” The victim said yes, so the perp pulled himself into the air on the train’s metal bars and unleashed a powerful kick to the victim’s chest. Two other dancers then joined in the attack and started punching and kicking the victim in the head and body.
The police have released a rough sketch of these street toughs:

The victim was robbed of his wallet, dignity, and an armoir.
