And there was this one time where we came from the fireworks and there was this white veteran… he had a veteran hat on and he was arguing with someone… you might all think I’m lying, but I swear to my child, my unborn child, they quarreled because the person next to the veteran [im Zug] against it. We sat in front of them – they quarreled. The Old Veteran […] just started [zu schreien]. And he started yelling at everyone, even us and we were kids. I was about 12 or so and my cousin cried because of it.” Cardi recalled that the veteran was then dragged off the train and beaten up by some passengers.
