in today’s “get yo’ people” and Social Commentary news….
31 year old erika Menendez shoved Mr. Sunando Sen, 46 in front of a moving train in NYC because she “hated Muslims and what they did on 9/11”. Beyond the obvious, the most heinous thing about this crime is that Mr. Sen wasn’t eMuslim…he was Indian.
Mental health issues in NYC and across the US are beginning to gain more and more national attention as people begin to realize that it isn’t the guns that are killing people, it’s people with mental health issues. According to RT: “[Menedez] has repeatedly been institutionalized for mental health problems and was discharged from Bellevue Hospital Center earlier this year.”
When asked why she did it Mendez said ““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,” Richard A. Brown, the Queens district attorney, quoted the woman as saying.
While people run about and cry and yell about guns, the truth is even more painfully obvious. Everyone talks about the “tools” used – while the SOURCE of the problem, people with compromised thought processes are left untreated. If some one wants to kill people, all they need is opportunity, a fast moving force and a pair of hands.
