Family: Maniac who burned woman to death in elevator had grudge over firing (Brooklyn, NYC)

The madman who burned an elderly Prospect Heights woman to death had been doing odd jobs for her - but was fired after she caught him stealing, her nephew said today.

“He was doing more stealing than cleaning,” said a distraught Rickey Causey, 52, about the man in custody for allegedly setting 64-year-old victim Delores Gillespie on fire Saturday.

Causey said the unidentified suspect - who turned himself into cops at Brooklyn’s 32nd transit district early today reeking of gasoline - had left a note on Gillespie’s door with a list of chores he was demanding payment for.

SOME of us don’t consider 64 elderly.

The folks who feel entitled get ugly when they feel they aren't getting what they want.

The Occupy Wall St crowd is going to come back for Round 2, and next time they're bringing fire.

Well, the media finally identified the perp as a black male.

Probably Muslim, too - that explains the news blackout.

Prosecute this as a black-on-white hate crime, and throw him into general population at Rikers.

What do you mean, “finally”? The first report I saw of this had a picture of the perp.

Another Obama voter demonstrates the restraint and love of the Left.

He’s probably a big hero in some circles of Congress, jail, the Attorney Generals office, White House, Black Panthers, and certain Chicago churches.

I wish they’d get the story straight. Earlier articles said she was mentally ill- very paranoid. They said her mentally ill son was living with her. They said the perp was a current or former boyfriend.

It will never be called a hate crime. Black on white crimes aren’t called hate crimes.

The black teacher who stabbed her co-worker 16 times in the face is already out on bail and the hate crime is being called a teacher fight!

Obama’s attitude and words have unleashed a lot of anger.

Well, I suggest fight fire with fire!

The media can be counted on to get the story straight eventually. We are at war with Eastasia. We have always been at war with Eastasia.

Black on white crimes aren’t called hate crimes.

Whatever they're "called", if you pay attention to it, the rate of really brutal, senseless attacks with this racial pattern is through the roof.

I thought the DOJ would call that “workplace violence”?
Oh I forgot, if she had SHOT 16 co-workers that would be workplace violence. This is just a teacher on teacher disagreement. /s

I prefer the word Mature to elderly for a 65 year old kid.

I musta been asleep the last few days because this is the first I heard about it. This story is unbelievable. She stabbed the 54 year old teacher 16 times with a screwdriver she just happened to have handy. It was in a school hallway filled with kids and the whole thing is on videotape. And not only was the perp not charged with attempted murder, but she’s out on bond already. Dollars to donuts the white teacher is gonna be vilified as a hate mongering racist.

“Obama’s attitude and words have unleashed a lot of anger.”

They have, and now his policies have driven them further into poverty, ignorance, dependence, and irrelevance. 2000 was the year Hispanics passed blacks in numbers; the 2008 election was white America’s sendoff to black America. During Bush’s two races all the buzz was about the Hispanic vote; blacks had already been marginalized politically.
