    Come on Bloombeg BAN TRAINS!It's not the 6,000,000 who don't abuse but the two who do

    NEW YORK (AP) — A woman sought in the death of a man who was shoved in front of a subway train was picked up by police on Saturday after a passer-by noticed her on the street and called authorities.
    The woman, whose name was not released, was being questioned and had not been formally charged, New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said. Investigators were arranging for witnesses to identify the 31-year-old woman in custody as the person who pushed Sunano Sen to his death on Thursday night.
    The 46-year-old Sen, who was from India, ran a printing shop and was living in Queens. He died after a woman muttering to herself suddenly lunged forward and pushed him off an elevated platform and onto the tracks of the No. 7 train, which connects Manhattan and Queens.
    It was unclear whether the woman had any connection to Sen. Witnesses told police the two hadn't interacted on the platform as they waited for the train.
    The woman fled after the attack. Police released security camera video showing her running from the station. Investigators had been following up on tips from people who had seen the security video and were checking homeless shelters and psychiatric units in an attempt to identify her.
    On Saturday, a passer-by noticed a woman who resembled the woman in the video and called 911l. Police responded and confirmed her identity and took her to a police station, where she made statements implicating herself in the crime, Browne said.
    The attack was the second time this month that a man was pushed to his death in a city subway station. A homeless man was arrested in early December and accused of shoving a man in front of a train in Times Square. He claimed he acted in self-defense and is awaiting trial.

    "A 31-year-old woman was arrested on Saturday and charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime in connection with the death of a man who was pushed onto the tracks of an elevated subway station in Queens and crushed by an oncoming train"

    Was the victim somehow "deader" because a "second degree murder as a hate crime" was perpetrated against him? Murder is murder and additional nuanced and foolish legal definitions didn't serve to protect the victim in this instance did it? If the woman is convicted she needs to be served with punishment of the severest kind. That would be proper justice and if consistently applied it protects the citizenry best through both the removal of miscreants and the strong message sent to those who would violate the society in which they live.

    Take gun ban advocates' arguments to their logical extreme conclusion and New York would ban subways and associated boarding facilities.

    Two people murdered? Then everyone gets to walk around the city, losing their liberty to use a more accommodating mode of transportation.

    You got it! People/crazy people will kill if it's guns, bats, bricks, OR trains. Murder will N-E-V-E-R stop the insane from Newtown, Bat Man movie, or Congressman Giffards. They will always find a way. Cane didn't use a Glock to kill Able, and humanity has gone from there.
