Video shows suspect fleeing the scene of fatal Queens subway shove (NYers let her escape)
NY Post ^ | 12/28/12 | LARRY CELONA

Posted on 12/28/2012 8:41:15 AM PST by jimbo123

A madwoman last night pushed a stranger onto subway tracks in Queens, where he was killed by a train, police and witnesses said.

It was the second such nightmare in less than a month.

The unsuspecting victim was waiting at the elevated 40th Street station of the 7 line in Sunnyside at 8 p.m.

“This lady, she just pushed the guy on the tracks. Then she ran away. I was screaming and closing my eyes,” said witness Tenzing Tegeng, 21, one of five people on the platform.

“I knew he was gonna get hit by the train. That’s why I closed my eyes. I didn’t want to see it.

One thing we aren’t sure of yet, is if he was actually a stranger.

Some thing the video shows that she is following him, and singles him out.

Others think it was random.

None of the decision makers in NYC ever ride the subway or take public transportation..same in DC. So why would they care if crazy people litter our streets and foul our cities. The problem isn’t guns..the problem is we don’t deal with our mentally ill citizens in an effective way.

Not need to ban the train, just limit the track to no more than 10ft.

From the article:

“She was so fast. I was like, ‘Stop the lady!’ ” said Tegeng, who chased the woman with several others.

And should we ban guns because of this?

Nothing "mad" about her. She was able to stalk, commit the act, and then flee the scene, acutely aware that what she had done was a morally reprehensible crime.

Believe it or not but I use to live exactly a block away from that station, on 43rd ave until I moved last year. That is really bizarre and I can definitely see how someone could be easily pushed because the platform isn't that wide at that station. Maybe only 2 people wide. What get's me is HOW in the name of all things insane did this fat POS "run away"? She's 5'5" and weighs the same as me and I'm 6'2"!

“She was so fast. I was like, ‘Stop the lady!’ ” said Tegeng, who chased the woman with several others.

Are these people crippled or something? She was so fast? She's waddling in the video, my grandmother could outrun her, yet she gets away?

Yeah, matt04, but you left out "high-powered," "sniper," "spray and pray," "gun lobby," and some others that might help mislead people.

I think it came from the article...

“She was acting weird and crazy,” the source said.

After the attack, she fled down the stairs to Queens Boulevard.

“She was so fast. I was like, ‘Stop the lady!’ ” said Tegeng, who chased the woman with several others.

Tegeng did not hear any arguing beforehand. Others also reported no interaction between the two.

I agree. Not mentally ill, just looking for an opportunity to steal something, his laptop perhaps.

The article said some saw her sitting on a bench, then pacing up and down at times.

Perhaps an gang initiation.

That’s just not true. New Yorkers foil crimes every day - you just never hear about it. It’s not news. Also, watch NYers come to the aid of someone who takes a bad fall in the city streets; or watch strangers helping old ladies across icy streets in winter. I don’t know the full story of this particular case - and you don’t either.

I live in NYC and ride the subway every day. Your assertion that “most New Yorkers won’t get involved with anything” is untrue. In public places, whether in a park or on a subway, individual New Yorkers always align this way: good guys versus bad guys. I’ve witnessed crimes and have helped victims — I was one of many at one scene who helped — and my own life was saved by a stranger who intervened when I was mugged.

The fact is that the subway platforms are crowded and, even when they are relatively uncrowded, it is difficult to see what is happening more than a few feet away from you because the platforms are narrow. It is possible that the few people who witnessed this woman push the guy onto the tracks were too stunned to react. As for all the others who supposedly chose not to stop the fleeing woman: unless they actually saw her push the guy onto the tracks, they would not know why she was running away. If I saw a twentysomething woman of any race running quickly out of a subway, I would not tackle her if I had no idea what was going on. For all I knew, she could be running away from a criminal!

Let’s focus the blame in this case where it belongs: on the woman who pushed the guy onto the tracks.
