Default Subway assailant: "I pushed a Muslim"

Quote:
A woman was charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime Saturday for pushing an Indian immigrant off a subway platform to his death, prosecutors said.

The accused, Erika Menendez, 31, of Rego Park, told detectives she attacked Sunando Sen, 46, because she "thought it would be cool" and because of long-standing prejudice against "Muslims, Hindus and Egyptians," whom she blamed for the 9/11 terrorist attacks, prosecutors said at her arraignment in Queens Criminal Court in Kew Gardens Saturday night.
Judge: No bail for NYC subway-push suspect Erika Menendez

A new word has to be invented for this degree of hateful stupidity.

I have no pity or concern for this woman. Some people are %hit and should just be washed away.

I have nothing to say, being an Indian. This is a sad news. Its sad the way human beings harbor hate in their hearts.Im not just taking about the accused woman, but also the people behind 9/11 attacks and all other violence in the world which rise from hate just because they have different beliefs and religions. its sad that many have not yet learnt to rise above.

Also I doubt the man was muslim(i haven't read the reports yet). His surname suggests he is a hindu.

Yeah, he was Hindu. But you know how people like to group "others" all together, especially once they've objectified them.

Wow. My friend, who is a Muslim, was there. It could have been him.

ETA: He actually wasn't when it happened it seems. I thought he had been because he posted about it happening at his stop, but it was before he went there. It's just the stop he takes the train at every day.

It is pretty bad but what happened in India recently has really made me question humanity. Even though sadly its probably not that uncommon. Inhumane acts in general, all over the world.

I'm glad they found out who she was. I heard about it but at the time they didn't say who it was.

You are right, it is not uncommon over the world.

I saw this on the news in a store in the airport on their TV and almost puked. I'm really sad for the state of humanity these days. Despicable.

I feel like people just think it's ok to be hateful. More and more, we are seeing people be openly hateful and increasingly so. I don't get it. SO MUCH ENERGY goes into hating someone (or even a whole group of people). It's such a shame. Where is the love? People need to listen to "Heal The World" by MJ. This needs to be the world's soundtrack because kids are just going to grow up hating those who they consider "other".
