Troubled Past for Suspect
in Fatal Subway Push

New York Times, by Marc Santora and Anemona Hartocollis

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 12/31/2012 6:56:55 AM

Long before Erika Menendez was charged with pushing a stranger to his death under an oncoming train at a Queens elevated station, she had years of contact with New York City’s mental health and law enforcement establishments. She was treated by the psychiatric staffs of at least two city hospitals, and caseworkers visited her family home in Queens to provide further help. She was also arrested at least three times, according to the police, twice after violent confrontations.

What is wrong with this state that they do not put these people away permantly. I have two granddaughters that work in an asylum and they are physically attacked often and needless to say, help is hard to hire and they do not stay long. It is a problem that needs to be solved as soon as possible.

If we are not going to reopen state hospitals, I suggest we bring back exorcisms--because these murderous people are evil as well as insane. Why don´t they express their mental illness by passing out flowers instead of shooting school children? Why didn´t Ms. Menendez stick around the subway station instead of hightailing it, if she had no concept of right or wrong or crime and consequences. What´s really insane is letting these people prompted by their evil demons on the streets to molest passersby and murder the innocent.

So when push comes to shove it´s a hate crime-- although the basis of hate is mental illness?

Even mental patients know right from wrong-- or in many cases what guilt is even if suppressed.

Off topic. How about a New Years resolution to ignore seminar posters? Just consider blocking them from your mind. And to give them no regard. Remember they eventually weed themselves out. In the meantime it isn´t worth it for anyone to raise their blood pressure over a minor annoyance like a site pest. Happy New Year.

Under 18 U.S.C. § 922(d), it is unlawful for any person to sell or otherwise dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that such person “has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution."

Under NY penal law 400.00, no person shall be issued a license to carry, possess or dispose of a firearm unless he or she has stated whether he or she has ever suffered from any mental illness or been confined to any hospital or institution, public or private, for mental illness.

I think we pretty much agree that there are laws in place to keep her from getting a gun, and no one is proposing relaxing these laws.

we can thank the ACLU and the clintons for this...ACLU sued saying the civil liberties of the people in mental hospitals were being violated and these peope were being held against their will and the clinton adminstration agreed...needed more votes...
There are background checks for people and if the paper work is done properly this women would NOT be able to purchase a gun...

But just see how she used the subway train as a tool in stead of a gun...so we must ban subways...its the only way to correct this problem....

#7 asks, Yes, this woman killed without using a gun. However, would you want this woman to have unlimited 2nd amendment rights to a gun?

Has anyone on this thread stated that she should have had rights to a gun? There are a numerous laws on the book, one referenced above, to keep mentally ill people from getting guns. The point here is that mentally ill people (and evil, bad guys in general) usually commit crimes regardless of whether or not they can get their hands on a gun. Look at what just happened in India -- 6 Indian men raped a woman, ultimately killing her, and, as far as we know (from media reports), there was not a gun in sight.

The issues of dealing with the mentally ill goes back a lot further than the Clinton era. All he ever did was to inject steroids to several existing programs (housing for ex.) and then stand back to avoid the blowback results. The ACLU has been ruining things in this country since the 60´s.

#7 "…. Or should there be some regulations that could keep people like this woman from purchasing a
weapon? …"

These regulations already exist. They are called ´Background Checks.´ It´s what everyone legally purchasing a weapon from a dealer or gun store has to go through.

I know, listening to the media, that one would be lead to believe that buying guns is like buying cabbage…just pile up your cart and check out. But it really doesn´t work that way! Hasn´t in a long, long time.

Now stealing a weapon or buying one from an individual……that´s different. No background checks!

Let´s clarify what #7 said.
"Yes, this woman killed without using a gun. However, would you want this woman to have unlimited 2nd amendment rights to a gun? Or should there be some regulations that could keep people like this woman from purchasing a weapon?"

Restrictions should be applied to a person not a firearm.

Libs and the Gov´t want to restrict everone´s 2nd amendment rights via licensing, taxing, bureaucracy, ATF rules, manufacturing, sales recordings, limitation on type, how a firearm looks vs how it functions, ridiculous definitions such a "assault", attacks against people and institutions (NRA) fighting to preserve the 2nd amendment, making firearm ownership onerous, barbaric and pugnatious - while praising abortions, denouncing hunting as killing Bambi but still saturating movies and TV horrific and graphic visuals of guns blasting people to smithereens.

Long live the NRA. The NRA and the 2nd amendment are your very best guarantee for liberty.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
