This is Kathy Hochul’s and Eric Adams’ NYC.
According to a report from The New York Post, an ax-wielding man wrecked a McDonald’s in New York City on Saturday night; he was charged with criminal mischief and three counts of menacing and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
“So, basically he got into an argument with a girl, and then the girl rejected him,” Uber Eats deliveryman Ruben G told The Post. “She didn’t want to talk to him. He kept going at her.”
Gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin commented on the violent display, tweeting, “Just another day in Kathy Hochul’s New York. After we fire Hochul on November 8th, we are taking back our streets!”
Later, Zeldin added, “This guy hacked up tables and walls at a McDonald’s, swung his hatchet wildly at customers, and got released before his fries got cold. Cashless bail in New York must be repealed ASAP!”

From The New York Post:
Michael Palacios, 31, who allegedly grabbed an ax and trashed the Delancey Street fast-food joint early Friday, was arraigned on fourth-degree criminal mischief and possession-of-weapons charges hours later and freed, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said.
Neither charge is eligible for bail under the state’s lenient criminal justice reforms.
According to a criminal complaint filed in the case, Palacios slammed two tables and a plate-glass partition during the early-morning rampage.
Palacios also told cops, “I have a pocket knife in my bike,” according to the complaint.
