The story of a man who was murdered by being pushed from a subway platform in New York City has been in the news and on the web for a few days. Even more sensational than this murder is the story that this is the second murder by that means this month. A man was arrested for the December 3 murder of 58-year-old Ki-Suck Han. That suspect has an extensive history of mental illness, criminal behavior, and is homeless.
Police have now arrested a woman for the murder of Sunando Sen.
NEW YORK (AP) – “I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers I‘ve been beating them up,” ——– told police, according to the district attorney’s office.
Following my new policy of not adding to the notoriety of murder suspects by naming them on this blog, you’ll have to click through to the article if you’re interested.
I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict that it will come out that this person has a history of both homelessness and mental illness. And that she hasn’t been taking her medications in some time.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Friday urged residents to keep Sen’s death in perspective as he touted new historic lows in the city’s annual homicide and shooting totals.
It’s all about the gun violence with Mayor Bloomberg. The subways are totally safe. Except for when they aren’t.
Here’s a news flash for Mayor “Little people shouldn’t have guns, but I need an armed security detail because I’m really important”.
Both Mr Sen and Mr Ki-Suck are just as dead as if they were shot. Not only that, they were just as murdered as if they were shot. So, you’re telling us that New York City is safer is no comfort to their families.
Don’t forget though, that gun control isn’t about reducing crime and it isn’t about guns, it’s about control. Oh, and lying to the public when it furthers your goal.
