Erika Menendez of the Bronx, has been charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime, in the subway shoving death of Indian immigrant Sunando Sen. She pushed him off the platform and into the path of an oncoming No. 7 train because she hates ‘Hindus and Muslims.’

NY Times:  “The defendant is accused of committing what is every subway commuter’s nightmare,” Mr. Brown said in an interview. “Being suddenly and senselessly pushed into the path of an oncoming train.”

Mr. Brown said that the woman [Erika Menendez] was motivated by hatred, telling the police, that she “pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers I’ve been beating them up.”

Ms. Menendez conflated the Muslim and Hindu faiths both in her comments to the police and in her target for attack, officials said.

$100 Million Claim Filed Against Connecticut On Behalf of Survivor of Newtown School Shooting Massacre [Some of the victims]

Connecticut-based attorney Irv Pinsky has filed a $100 million claim on behalf of a six year old survivor in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre in Newtown December 14, in which 20 children and six adults were killed by Adam Lanza. This is the first legal action to arise out of the tragedy.

Reuters:  The unidentified client, referred to as Jill Doe, heard “cursing, screaming, and shooting” over the school intercom when the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, opened fire, according to the claim filed by New Haven-based attorney Irv Pinsky.

“As a consequence, the … child has sustained emotional and psychological trauma and injury, the nature and extent of which are yet to be determined,” the claim said.

Pinsky said he filed a claim on Thursday with state Claims Commissioner J. Paul Vance Jr., whose office must give permission before a lawsuit can be filed against the state. “We all know its going to happen again,” Pinsky said on Friday. “Society has to take action.”

Pinsky’s claim said that the state Board of Education, Department of Education and Education Commissioner had failed to take appropriate steps to protect children from “foreseeable harm.”

Is this really about security or is it about money? You be the judge……

Top Five Dumbest Republican Quotes of 2012 Include Mitt Romney’s Safety Net for Poor, Binders Full of Women (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Top Five of Dumbest Republican Quotes of 2012 came from Republicans during the presidential campaign.

1. Mitt Romney: “I’m in this race because I care about Americans. I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there.”

2. Mitt Romney: “I went to a number of women’s groups and said ‘Can you help us find folks?’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”

3. Roger Rivard:  On what his father told him: “He also told me one thing, ‘If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry. Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she’s not going to say, ‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.’ All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she’s underage. And he just said, ‘Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,’ he said, ‘they rape so easy.’

4. Richard Mourdock:  ”I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

5. Todd Akin: “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways of shutting that whole thing down.” 

Honorary mention: 

Ann Coulter (tweet):  “I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.”
