Shock to kill a 6 year old. Deserves the most severe punishment possible which I guess they don’t have in NY. Who could do such a thing. Drug business??

Because of his time in California, I had never realized that Gibson was originally from Brooklyn.

How sad this is, how young these kids were!

It is clear to see more everyday that Satan is indeed running loose on earth. How else can you explain these things. Poor kids, they did not have a chance.

The devil has always been doing that, but because people let themselves get estranged from God, they have given more room to the devil lately.

This isn’t God’s fault. His gospel offer stands as always. It’s our fault for being too sophisticated, too proud, too anything to care about God first.

Who would stab a six-seven year old boggle the mind, even in the NY sewer Amish community.

I know this is not the fault of God, far from it, it is the work of Satan, it is just that I seem to be seeing more of it these days, and I cannot help but think that perhaps it has something to do with the general attitude of society in this day and age.

May the perp be caught quickly. Prayers said for these two children and their families. I wish someone had been present with these children and had been able to protect them. Very disheartening to read a story as this one.

Well what I mean is it is our fault for not even caring about salvation. This is how it ends when people get to thinking that science and the like is the be all and end all of life. Bread, circuses, and test tubes, I suppose.

Was the killer on some random rampage? Or did he (or someone who hired him) specifically want those children gone?

There are lots of just plain old psychopathic killers living in the projects.

Things are going to get out of hand in NYC very quickly, now that hardcore marxists are in charge.

Good questions HiTech. Have to believe interviews are occurring to determine if this was random or a hit.

“which I guess they don’t have in NY”

Absolutely right. Last month I saw a video of a punk walk up behind a 68 year old Asian man, smash him in the face then stomp on his head killing him, then congratulate himself like he just scored a touchdown - bumping his fists together. People thought he was probably a nut, I said no, he’s just one more punk ass who regularly goes through the revolving door of justice thanks to liberals, probably out on parole, and sure enough he was - black guy out on parole for armed robbery AND drug dealing. His excuse was he was “trying to rob” the Asian man but most likely was high on drugs and thought he would have some “fun”.

http://blog.angryasianman.com/2014/05/suspect-sought-in-fatal-beating-of-68.html

And this is a city that refuses to allow people to defend themselves which is why I moved 2 years ago, and I grew up there. Absolutely the worst city in this country, hands down. It’s just completely decimated by liberals, they allow criminals to run amok yet demand law abiding people live under their fascist BS, and now people are complaining because gang violence is going through the roof again. Why? Because the Marxist they elected refused to allow cops to do their jobs. 13 gang related deaths this past weekend. Hey but at least there’s no smoking in Times Square and drinking one liter soda.

many also fall for the devil’s lie about not being able to defend oneself against those that would do great harm/murder. somehow thinking self defense at equal or greater strength is the same thing as criminals’ deadly violence. total lie.

It’s a personal choice before God and Caesar has no business forcing it to be one way or the other.

The killer doesn’t appear to be high. It just looked like he decided to kill an Asian.

"Drug business?"

This doesn't sound like drug business at all.

More like a psycho slasher on the loose in the 'hood.

It's significant that on Friday another child was stabbed to death only a few blocks away.

Leni,
Am find a reference to an 18 year old female being stabbed on Friday, in same neighborhood. Is this the same as your reference or different?

Shut up man, Maury was on!

I think the area is a housing project. And they likely play outside on the street while inattentive mom does whatever it is people do in housing projects. Facebook, Maury, a bit of Steve Wilkos, send kids to play somewhere, plan to get F-ed up, look for a job later.

Growing up in Florida, some kids head was found on the beach. We were not shielded from it and my parents never lost sight of us.

// Former Councilman Charles Barron secured $500,000 last July for cameras at the Boulevard Houses where the stabbings took place.

Those cameras, which could have captured the image of the suspect, are still not up. //

Corruption. Via link from your link (thanks):

“Absolutely the worst city in this country, hands down.”

I agree; I live a dozen miles to the west, and haven’t been there in years. After Rudy was elected, people told me it was different; they had simply moved the homeless crazies off the streets into the subways. He made it more secure, but that has been undone since he left.

At this point visiting NYC would be like volunteering for a “scared straight” program where you spend some time in jail.

He is running loose regardless of our choices. We must always be on guard though. When Christ comes again he will bind Satan and his followers to hell, but in the meantime he scours the earth like a lion looking for souls to devour.
