(Libertarian Republic) Joseph Lozito was riding the subway when he was approached by drug-fueled spree killer Maksim Gelman. The murder announced that "you're going to die," and stabbed Lozito in the face, plunging a knife beneath his left eye.
Lozito did not die. The 6-foot-2 dad wrestled Gelman to the ground as the killer continued to hack away at him. Gelman stabbed Lozito in the back of the head several times before Lozito managed to disarm him. "He got to the back of my head because my left shoulder [was] in his waist," said Lozito. The hero says he held Gelman in place until police arrived and arrested him.
Yet Lozito, who is suing the city, says that he never should have been attacked in the first place.
