As the New York Times reported - ''For more than half an hour 38 respectable, law-abiding citizens in Queens watched a killer stalk and stab a woman in three separate attacks in Kew Gardens.” (Nytimes.com, 2014). Although it was primarily reported that thirty-eight people witnessed these violent attacks, this figure was later lessened to a dozen.

I shall be answering question number 7, ‘what do I think of Wining Boy’s explanation of blacks and whites?’, is that Wining Boy is explaining that white men can bend the law so that it suits them.
