Hate crime: Hispanic woman pushes man in front of NYC Subway

Postby plwk » Sun Dec 30, 2012 7:01 am



A woman suspected of shoving a man to his death in front of an oncoming New York subway train was arrested yesterday and charged with “second-degree murder as a hate crime” in the second such fatality this month for one of the world’s busiest transit systems.

The district attorney for the New York City borough of Queens said Erika Menendez, 31, who was seen pacing the subway platform and muttering to herself before the attack, had told investigators that she pushed the victim, Sunando Sen, 46, on Thursday because “I hate Hindus and Muslims.”

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
