A 31-year-old woman was arrested on Saturday and charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime in connection with the death of a man who was pushed onto the tracks of an elevated subway station in Queens and crushed by an oncoming train.
In a statement, Mr. Brown quoted Ms. Menendez, “in sum and substance,” as having told the police: “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.” Ms. Menendez conflated the Muslim and Hindu faiths in her comments to the police and in her target for attack, officials said.
Mr. Sen “was allegedly shoved from behind and had no chance to defend himself,” Mr. Brown said. “Beyond that, the hateful remarks allegedly made by the defendant and which precipitated the defendant’s actions should never be tolerated by a civilized society.”
World, please know this woman does not represent more than a small % of Americans.

I have to believe that she is Mentally Deranged.
If Not, what a sad excuse for a human being..............
You hit a fair point. I should amend what I said to be a bit more accurate. The violence and lethal result of her action makes her rare. Sadly, her ignorance and bigotry isn't rare enough by a long shot.
One of the reasons this story jumped off the screen at me was that I saw many like her among truckers after 9/11. The cultural blindness was just awesome to see and not in any positive way. It was bad enough listening to truckers on the CB in truck stops bad mouth Russians of all people ...for talking "Arab". That, I never said a thing about. They're big boys and can fight their own battles when Russian is all they want to speak.
What bothered me and I did NOT always stay silent for was the attitude of THIS woman. I saw too many truckers giving the Evil Eye or worse, openly challenging and humiliating Hindus in traditional dress who happened to be fellow truckers. You know the names..I don't need to repeat any of that filth here..but they'd get that thrown at them IN truck stops..in public. There were a few occasions I have outright said something and ...you might guess by seeing me around here? I'm not the quiet subtle type when I'm pissed and I'm right. It gave me some satisfaction at the time and shamed a few morons ...I hope...but indeed, that attitude persists, doesn't it?

I should apologize for sounding racist. My whole text should have been taken as sarcasm.
I made no mention of race to offend. Simply to imply that some other person could see her in the same light.
There are odd people with far left (as well as far right) thinking that I don't understand.
