NY: “Emotionally Disturbed” Person Kills Commuter by Pushing Him in Front of Moving Subway

Previously: Number of Subway Attacks and Murders Rising

There sure are a lot of emotionally disturbed people running around Manhattan these days.

New York Post:

A commuter was struck and killed by a Manhattan subway train Monday after being shoved onto the tracks by an emotionally disturbed person in an unprovoked attack, according to police and sources.

The victim was pushed onto the tracks as a northbound 4 train was entering the East 125th Street and Lexington Avenue station in East Harlem just before 7 p.m., police sources said.

The train was unable to stop in time and fatally struck the individual, an adult male whose identity has not been released.

The man was pronounced dead shortly after and a suspect, described as an emotionally disturbed person, was taken into custody, according to the sources. Charges are pending.

Earlier in the day, Kemper and other NYPD brass announced the department would deploy 800 more cops into subway stations over the next five days to hunt down fare-beaters, claiming the move curbs more violent crimes.

The government/media narrative right now is that this is all very normal, that the subway is basically as safe as it ever was, and people just need to stop complaining and accept that there is always some risk that a stranger will kill you randomly.
