Tourism to NYC to drop

They caught the subway stabber. Which is fantastic. But is it really necessary to have the following quotes from the Texan victim's aunt:

"He's a smart, very bright kid," his aunt said. "He's not violent. He's pretty passive." The attack must have been unprovoked, she said. "It had to be a random deal," she said of the attack. "He's not that type of kid." She described her nephew as a big science fiction and fantasy fan who used to collect Star Wars paraphernalia.

Because what's a trip to the big city without both getting randomly stabbed on the subway and getting called a wimpy nerd in the New York Times?

I do not think that is such a negative description. True it does not describe Donald Trump, but..
