If Mayor Bloomberg was consistent, he'd be calling for closing the Subways, if even for a 'cooling off' period.
For New York City, it wasn't an unusual sight: a possibly mentally
ill woman pacing and mumbling to herself on an elevated subway station
The woman eventually took a seat on a bench
Thursday night, witnesses later said. Then, without any warning or
provocation, she sprang up and used both hands to shove a man into the
path of an oncoming train.
As police sought on Friday to locate the
unidentified woman, Mayor Michael Bloomberg urged residents to keep the
second fatal subway shove in the city this month in perspective. The
news of the horrific death of 46-year-old Sunando Sen, who was from
India and lived in Queens, came as the mayor touted drops in the city's
annual homicide and shooting totals.
"It's a very tragic case, but what we want to focus
on today is the overall safety in New York," Bloomberg told reporters
following a police academy graduation.
So we think about the OVERALL safety of subways, but demonize guns instead of looking at the OVERALL safety? Only in Liberal Land. And might I add, this article says and explains that she was MENTALLY ILL.
But shouldn't they include the name of the guy who built that line? Or the men who laid the track, dug the tunnel, made the steel? All of that intel was in the stories about Newtown.
