Tragic Barnard College freshman Tessa Majors was allegedly in Morningside Park to buy marijuana when she was fatally stabbed by a group of teenage robbers, the head of the NYPD sergeants’ union claimed on Sunday. “What I am understanding is that [Majors] was in the park to buy marijuana,” Sergeants Benevolent Association president Ed Mullins told radio host John Catsimatidis on his AM 970 show, The Cats Roundtable.(Snip) A friend of the victim claimed to detectives that the 18-year-old Virginia native and musician told the pal she was headed to the Upper Manhattan park to buy pot Wednesday evening,

The victim always shares responsibility. See? NYC is safe. Meanwhile, the PBA chief is saying what, the police don't bother to enforce street drug crimes? Police enforcement is so poor that a kid can't buy a dime bag without being beaten and stabbed to death? Meanwhile, the foolish victim ventures forth alone because the MSM portrays women as invincible (see Star Wars) and schools like Barnard say explosive and nonsensical black violence (particularly against women) is a myth, and that "white nationalists" are the one to fear.

Cops are not your friends. Not only is talking about her reason for being in the park irrelevant, it's preactive jury tampering. The defense attorney will have a field day with this.

Another young woman making bad choices and paying for it with her life. It doesn't make the perps any less feral or depraved. Pity her poor family that has to deal with this knowledge in addition to her senseless death.

See, there was nothing the Mayor or the cops or the college could do about this, ever. Oh, add the Thug gov to the list since his new found love of pot gives everyone the idea that it is no big deal in NY state. cuomo is so dimwitted he thinks NY will reap all kinds of tax money on a weed that grows anywhere.

Chalk up another death to the "War On Drugs." If narcotic drugs were legal - - Tessa could have safely walked to the local CVS or bodega to buy her weed. I wonder how the supporters of the "War On Drugs" sleep at night - - after reading horror stories like this one.

I can't imagine the pain her parents and brother are experiencing right now. I thought weed was legal in NYC. Regardless, the murder was beastly horrid.

According to ‘Law and Order’ all murders are committed by CEOs and/or their spoiled children.

I think the cop's point was that a policy of lax enforcement on minor crime leads to more serious crime. Broken windows theory. The victim and her killers were initially drawn together by the kind of petty crime that the city now tolerates. That would seem to be his point, judging by the quote at the end of the article. So he was really blaming the mayor, not the victim.

But, pot is legal in many states, and de-criminalized in many others. Are the NYPD trying to say that NY pot dealers are murderous thugs? No one should die just they're looking for a dime bag of weed, should they, NYPD?

#5, THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, is not a narcotic. And for those of you advocating the legalization of marijuana, it already IS legal for recreational use in several states. Check the statistics in those states for increases in traffic accidents and other problems since legalization.

New Jersey lawmakers passed a bill letting immigrants who cannot prove they're in the country legally get driver's licenses. The Democrat-led Assembly and Senate passed the measure Monday. Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy has said he supports the legislation as well. The National Conference of State Legislature says 13 states and the District of Columbia permit immigrants without legal status to obtain drivers licenses. A New Jersey think tank estimates that nearly 500,000 residents without documentation are of driving age in New Jersey.

A woman who ran a "birth tourism" operation was released from jail Monday after a federal judge gave her the lightest sentence possible. Now she faces deportation. Dongyuan Li's operation, You Win USA Vacation Services Corp., helped Chinese customers—including doctors, lawyers and government officials—travel to the United States to give birth so their children would receive US citizenship. The operation coached families on what to say in their visa interviews, created ways for them to bypass immigration controls and housed them in upscale apartments in California for up to three months.

An incorrigible subway perv racked up his 63rd arrest last week for allegedly groping a female straphanger—just over a month after completing an 11-year prison stint for similar crimes, authorities said Monday. Freddie Johnson, 61, allegedly ground his groin against a 27-year-old woman’s rear aboard a 5 train rumbling northbound near Lower Manhattan’s Fulton Street on Dec. 11, according to cops. The skeeved straphanger tried to move elsewhere in the car, but Johnson allegedly followed her, again pressed himself against her and grabbed her rear, police said.(Snip) Johnson—whose record stretches back to the 1980s and has been chronicled

New York—The Hallmark Channel is reversing its ban on advertisements featuring same-sex couples and apologizing for pulling them in the first place, a network spokeswoman told CNN Business. The decision comes after Hallmark parent company Crown Media Family Networks faced calls for viewers and advertisers to boycott its television channel. The ads, from online wedding planning company Zola, showed same-sex couples celebrating marriages. Hallmark president and CEO Mike Perry said Sunday that the company made the "wrong decision" and wants to reinstate the commercials.

The comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello did a routine about baseball that is a cult favorite. In it, they kept batting back and forth the question, “Who’s on First?” “What” was on second and “I Don’t Know” was on third. “I Don’t Give a Darn” was shortstop. “Who’s On First” was a humorous and outlandish exchange between the two comics. As the routine went, so politics goes today. President Trump labels any Republican who questions his erratic and narcissistic style as a RINO (Republican In Name Only).

Texas - Beto O’Rourke isn’t running for Senate again, and Democrats who have unusually high hopes for Texas in 2020 are facing an unsettled landscape. There’s no clear frontrunner among a dozen Democrats challenging Republican incumbent John Cornyn. None have raised big money and most candidates remain widely unknown. O’Rourke narrowly lost to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz last year and his presidential bid flamed out in November. Democrats urged the former El Paso congressman to run again for Senate, but the deadline to get on the 2020 ballot in Texas came and went this week.

I'm starting to watch the reaction to this Tessa Majors murder case like a slo-mo car crash. I noted the other day that the New York Times was pretty obnoxious to the Barnard University college student who was murdered in a dangerous park outside Columbia University, largely by trying to define victim's entire life by her green hair and liking for punk rock, as if kids don't go through stages. Kind of harsh to define someone that way at the grand sendoff... And far from being 'worldly' as the Times quoted someone as saying, those kinds of things are childish, and yes, the victim was in fact very young and naive.

Whatever its legal merit or lack thereof, the upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate is a political show trial that is intended to affect the upcoming presidential election for sure. So let’s consider the political implications, not the legal merits. The latest news is that the Republican leadership is thinking about trying to vote to acquit President Trump without a trial or hearing any witnesses. That has never been done, but it would be a smart move politically. Despite the president’s statements that he wants a full trial in the Senate, an impeachment trial is unlikely to help President Trump win reelection.
