Baby-shower thugs stab deliveryman in Qns.: cops
Last Updated: 6:56 AM, November 8, 2010

A group of men attending a late-night Queens baby shower dragged a food deliveryman out of his car, broke a bottle over his head and stabbed him -- all because he was honking his horn to get them to move their double-parked cars, authorities said yesterday.

The deliveryman, whose name and place of work were withheld by police, found himself blocked by cars double-parked three deep in front of the host's home on 126th Street in Ozone Park at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

After he honked his horn, between five and 10 men rushed his car and pulled him out, and one of them stuck a knife in his right side.

The deliveryman was listed in stable condition last night at Jamaica Hospital.

Balloons announcing the baby shower were still tied to the mailbox in front of the house yesterday, and the streetlights on the sidewalk had been shot out.

The address is included on an internet list of day-care centers, but the phone given for it was disconnected yesterday.

Double-parked or not, I am sick and tired of people honking their horns for non-urgent issues. If you're picking someone up at home, get out of your car and ring their buzzer (or call from your mobile, ya lazy fuck!) If you're a cabbie, legal or not, honking is not an appropriate way to obtain a fare! Traffic light turned green two milliseconds ago and the guy in front of you didn't instantly move? -- fuckin' relax!!! Count to three, then you can gently toot if they haven't started moving.

People who abuse their horns should have them removed, just as a convicted rapist should his penis removed -- on a chopping block, publicly in the town square!

In my opinion, due to the honking, the deliveryman is probably more to blame for the situation! Although the article makes him appear to be the victim, I'm sure he just didn't 'toot' just once on his horn. The reporters hint that the same crowd later shot out the streetlights! Where's your proof Larry & Jessica?

Ever think that some people deserve to be stabbed because stupidity isn't painful? I'm sure he'll think twice about honking his horn late-night in a residential neighbourhood now!! In fact, why not stick his decapitated head on a pike as a warning for other possible offenders!! <--- see photo ---

You shouldn't be shocked about the day-care comment at the end of the article... what day-care centre in Ozone Park wouldn't have knifes and guns. Welcome to New York muthafukas! Think that's bad? Maybe you don't belong here.

Okay my army of noise-pollution-hating vigilantes!! Now it's on to the Mister Softee fucks (oops, trucks) that won't turn down/turn off that fucking jingle! A shotgun to the speaker should do just fine -- without anyone getting stabbed. Hey, look! Chocolate ice cream!! (Oh, wait, that's not ice cream...)

Today's song is appropriately "Leaf Blower" by the Asylum Street Spankers (who, by the way, are having their last farewell concert this month in NYC). (Watch the video below).

Who has a baby shower at 11.30pm??

People that work shift work??

Does having it late imply that it's not legitimate? Should baby showers only be during the day?

Honking is a pain in the ass, especially late at night in a residential area, but the article says "found himself blocked by cars double-parked three deep". Does this mean the street was impassable and all traffic was blocked, or just where he wanted to double park to deliver food? (How "funny" would it have been if he was delivering to that party?) So, if the entire street was impassable what else should a driver do? Back up and take another street? Get out and start knocking on doors? Just sit and wait? Now there's a big difference between someone tooting the horn like a "hi there, I need to get by" and someone hanging on the horn like "get the fuck out of my way" but this article seems a little vague on certain details and you're right about the implications. Shabby reporting.

Yep, it's completely vague and it is very shabby reporting. What sort of 'food deliveryman' what this? Residential, like Domino's Pizza or Commercial like a Sysco truck? Again, very vague on detail.

Let's take a closer look at a representative section of 126th St in Ozone Park. Residential. Parking on both sides of the street.

I'm willing to bet this isn't the first encounter with this delivery person.

There's obviously more to this story -- and it wasn't written from a non-biased point of view. That's my biggest gripe with the reporting.
