The two stories are quite familiar.
Victim of NYC Subway Push Remembered as ‘Good Person’, Homeless Advocate – New York Daily News
Nurse dies days after being assaulted by man at downtown Los Angeles bus stop – KABC-7
I’m familiar with both locations, the Times Square Q stop and the area around Union Station. Both are stories about crime, public transportation, and the determination of the lefty leaders of two cities to allow unhinged mentally ill drug addicts to do what they like.
A homeless man turned himself in to police on Saturday afternoon hours after he shoved an Asian woman into the path of an oncoming Q train in Times Square in a possible hate crime, police officials announced.
The suspect — Simon Martial, 61 — was escorted from the Midtown South Precinct Saturday night in cuffs to be charged with murder in the second degree. When reporters questioned why Martial committed the cold-blooded crime, he began belligerently screaming, “Yes I did because I’m God. I can do it because I’m God!”
According to Assistant Chief Jason Wilcox, Martial is believed to be an emotionally disturbed homeless individual who allegedly accosted another woman prior to the murder, though she does not identify as a member of the AAPI community.
As if her “identification” matters. Over in LA, it’s a familiar story.
The suspect, later identified as Kerry Bell, had struck 70-year-old Shells in the face “without provocation and for no reason,” causing her to fall to the ground and sustain fractured skull, police said.
A short time after the assault, he was found sleeping near the site of the incident and was taken into custody. Authorities described him as a transient, with one prior arrest in L.A. and multiple others in other states.
No doubt. LA and California decided to become quite hospitable to the insane junkie population. And two women paid the price.
No lessons will be learned from this, the media will make sure of that, except the slow realization that life is becoming extremely unsafe.
