The NYPD is investigating what might be the city’s first coronavirus-related homicide — after a woman hit an elderly Brooklyn hospital patient in the head for violating social distancing, sources said Sunday. Victim Janie Marshall, 86, died less than four hours after the tense confrontation with 32-year-old Cassandra Lundy in Bedford-Stuyvesant’s Woodhull Hospital, cops said. (Snip) Lundy, who was at the hospital for seizures, lashed out, complaining Marshall wasn’t following coronavirus social distancing guidelines, and allegedly slugged her in the head, knocking her to the ground, according to police sources. Some of the confrontation was caught on video, though no

You should see my local Nextdoor page and Facebook neighborhood page...the people are off the rails, posting photos of people ‘not practicing social distancing’, reporting them to PD like good little Nazis. Unreal.

Why didn't Lundy just move away? Let me guess -- the 86 year old disrespected her.

The article says the hospital waited five hours after the victim died before calling the police. I can think of only one thing that would cause this. Fear. Fear of being made into racist villains, for persecuting a black woman, who didn't really do anything wrong.

Cassandra Lundy is one angry, vicious, violent person. Of course, in NY, given a summons. Will never be heard of again, probably. About a week ago in Home Depot, in line to pay in the self-check place. I got maybe 5 ft from the guy ahead as he finished up and he snarled "STAY BACK! Social distancing!" in a really frightened/angry tone. I was stunned, managed a wry grin and a "Really?", then recovered a bit, and said, "Drop dead". People are getting nutty. And the already nutty, are getting even nuttier.

The social distance warriors should just self-stay home. What's up with people? And New Yorkers are the worst. And, their governor thinks we want him to institute New Yorkism all over the country? No freakin' thanks!

Cuomo caused the pandemic in NYC with his welcoming of Chinese and European flights not to mention demanding illegals and jihadis settle in the city to pump up the population so he doesn't lose another congressional seat while at the same time getting more entitlement demonrat voters. Now he can't control the NYC entitlement crowd. Cassy should have gone after him.

This is just the beginning. It will get out of control. The president needs to start reversing the course and slowly start to bring back life as it was in the U.S. When people start seeing things coming back to life, our economy will heal and tensions will decrease. Right now with Dr. Doom (Fauci) and the President extending the period of quarantine only throws fuel on the fire.

As coronavirus infections peak in New York City, its morgues are quickly running out of room, exceeding their already vastly expanded capacity. The city’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) quietly posted a significant but subtle policy change to its website: Instead of holding some bodies in refrigerated city storage for 30 days until they are claimed by families, the city will now hold them for less than half that time. On Thursday, OCME’s site said decedents who are not claimed by a funeral home within two weeks would be sent to the Bronx’s Hart Island, where a graveyard

A Bronx man released from prison by Gov.

A generation of Democrats is haunted by the party’s infamous 1968 convention in Chicago. After one of the most tumultuous presidential primaries in US history—in which the incumbent Lyndon Johnson withdrew from the race, in which Bobby Kennedy built a multiracial working-class coalition before he was shot and killed, and in which the young college students and activists of the New Left rallied behind Eugene McCarthy, all against the backdrop of urban riots, Vietnam, and a breakaway segregationist faction—the Democratic establishment chose to nominate Johnson’s vice president, Hubert Humphrey, to maintain its control over the party.

Rome - Pope Francis has said the coronavirus pandemic is one of "nature's responses" to humans ignoring the current ecological crisis. In an email interview published Wednesday in The Tablet and Commonwealth magazines, the pontiff said the outbreak offered an opportunity to slow down the rate of production and consumption and to learn to understand and contemplate the natural world. "We did not respond to the partial catastrophes. Who now speaks of the fires in Australia, or remembers that 18 months ago a boat could cross the North Pole because the glaciers had all melted?

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said Wednesday he is suspending his 2020 presidential campaign, bowing to the commanding delegate lead former Vice President Joe Biden has established.

Across the country, hospital administrators, doctors and public officials are pleading for ventilators, as the spread of coronavirus is making growing numbers of patients dependent on the machines that pump oxygen into their lungs to keep them alive.

One person was arrested following a family dispute over toilet paper in the Santa Clarita Valley, authorities said Tuesday. Deputies initially responded to a family disturbance call, Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said in a tweet. A time and specific location for the call were not given. The relatives were arguing because one believed another hid the household’s toilet paper — a precious commodity in a country rattled by the coronavirus. Deputies say the feud escalated into a physical brawl, resulting in the arrest of one of the family members involved. Sheriff’s officials were unable to provide further details on

This would more than triple the rooms now under contract. The city already has committed $35 million for the next three months to lease the first batch of units. The overall effort would cost San Francisco roughly $105 million — some but not all of which would be reimbursed by the federal and state governments.
