Cops are on the lookout for a group of ruffians who they say beat a man unconscious on a train after an argument turned violent on July 12, according to a report.

The band of young galoots got into a verbal dispute with their 43-year-old victim on an F or G train as it neared the Smith-Ninth Street stop in Carroll Gardens at 9:50 pm, cops said. The argument turned to fisticuffs, and the punks allegedly ganged up on the man, beating him so badly that he lost consciousness, a report said.

The accused good-for-nothings fled the scene subway station and responders transported the wounded victim to New York Methodist Hospital, where he is in stable condition, cops said.

Reasonable discourse

It's long past time for CCW in Brooklyn, whether it's legal or not. The species hood rattus rattus feralis is overrunning the place.

Man, forget all of that surveillance nonsense. Crime still happens everywhere in BK & all over NYC 24/7. Honeatly, that guy that got beat up should've kept his mouth shut & minded his business because i personally think he started the whole thing by saying something to them. Not for nothing but if you just moved to NY & expected a gentrified, crime-free city then you're sad mistaken. If you dont like it then get outta here.
