Maria Fuentes, 92 and where she got murdered.
In South Richmond Hill, a 92-year-old woman collecting recyclables was attacked by a man who threw her to the ground behind a parked car then strangled her and raped her and left her for dead on the sidewalk near her house. The woman succumbed to her injuries and died hours later. The man who got caught who was on video stalking her and throwing her down claimed he never sexually violated her and that he was trying to help her up but his belt broke and his dick fell on her. His attempt at “helping” left her with multiple fractures and bruises on her frail body and a broken spine. He finally confessed to the brutal and heartless killing of Maria Fuentes by blaming it on his mother for not giving him enough affection.
Fareez Kahn was found to have mental problems and sexual urges plus he also attacked his father with a broken cup and got kicked out of the house two months ago. He was also an illegal immigrant that was on detainer for deportation by Immigration Customs Enforcement because of this very incident and were constantly thwarted by de Blasio’s NYPD to arrest him even though his father requested an order of protection against his son.
Even though the NYPD claims that they never once heard from ICE about the detainer, the federal government is suing this city for not cooperating by withholding information about Kahn’s whereabouts after he was released from assault charges from attacking his father (who decided to drop the charges against him). After six weeks of slumming around and wandering the streets, Kahn raped and murdered Ms. Fuentes.
This gruesome incident got the attention of President Donald Trump as he included it in his State of the Union speech in defense of ICE while condemning New York’s sanctuary city policy (even though he didn’t mention Ms. Fuentes name). This led to Mayor de Blasio and his city hall minions to react and accuse Donnie playing politics and exploiting Kahn’s killing even though it was politics that got in the way and the city was exploiting Trump to undermine ICE agents legally trying to detain a violent mentally ill man off the streets because de Blasio’s NYPD didn’t seem to want to until it was too late . Which is just as tragic, as petty and irresponsible partisan politics led to the unnecessary and preventable death of Ms. Fuentes while she was doing her daily routines. It’s also tragic that she was still recycling bottles to earn some extra money, which should be a damning condemnation of this city’s ossifying affordability crisis
In East Elmhurst, two month old twin boys suffocated to death in their crib at a hotel homeless shelter while their father put them down for a nap after he smoked a joint and fell asleep himself. The mother wasn’t around because she was reportedly ejected from the shelter for reasons unknown.
Back in 2017, a bill signed by Governor Cuomo led to State Dept. Of Health to institute a safe baby box program to prevent crib death by distributing cribs to poor parents and also literature stressing safety measures like not putting stuffed animals, loose mattresses, and excessive blankets and pillows in the boxes. Somehow de Blasio’s Department of Homeless Services must have forgot about that. The only proactive measures that were made in this tragedy so far seems to be the effort by the authorities to cover it up.
To think that there isn’t adequate affordable housing and safe shelters for these two babies to rest. Which is another damning condemnation on this city’s ossifying affordability crisis.

As this post shows, seven serious crimes have rose in the five boroughs in January compared to last year. Shootings went up by nearly half, robberies went up by a third and significant spikes went up in other felonies like auto theft, burglaries, felony and misdemeanor assaults and grand and petit larcenies.
NYPD, prosecutors, and some elected state officials have tied to these troubling spikes in crime to the bail and criminal justice reform laws that were just passed and recidivist criminals are easily taking advantage of them. Which is true, but the fact of the matter is that they only exacerbated the crime rate stats that have been moderately rising in the past decade (at least the ones that were reported on accurately).
Even Mayor de Blasio has got the hint and has tied the deformed reform laws to city crime’s upward trajectory. But he is only doing that now because he always defers responsibility whenever stats or events make him look and confirm what a weak ass lousy mayor he is. It’s good that he acknowledges this too, but he unwittingly also confirms that the New Bad Days are officially here.
And that is what that is.
Be aware of your surroundings, safest big city.

That story about the tenant killing his landlord is why I’m having second thoughts about continuing to rent out my parents’ house. At the rate things are going, I’d rather lose money than take the risk of renting again. The law and tenant advocacy groups have emboldened sociopathic tenants to such an extent that they feel that they’re in the right no matter what, and that the landlords are the evil ones trying to “screw them over.” I am in the middle of now trying to get rid of our second tenant, and I’m literally biting my knuckles until they’re out of the house because there’s no telling what they’ll do.

That’s horrific, and the cops won’t do thing to help you either I assume. The bail reform laws has created a culture shift being that the worst people out there are emboldened now because of them. I believe it’s a way to force long time residents out. In fact it’s already working as hundreds of thousands of NYC citizens already bailed.
My take on that story is the landlord was trying to stop that asshole from stealing a bed, the guy went into the house with a power tool. I wonder if the landlord was trying to call the cops. At least that killer is not on the streets.

No, cops don’t help at all. They just boil everything down to “it’s a tenant-landlord dispute/civil matter/take it up in court.” Doesn’t matter what the tenants do. You could be telling them, “Look, I heard them breaking all the windows in the house,” and they’ll be like, “Then take them to civil court.” Ironically, while tenants have so many “rights” that they’re free to vandalize your property and are completely off the hook if they can leave without any forwarding address, you can be fined and criminally punished for locking them out of their apartment or dumping their stuff out onto the street, even IF they’ve violated a court order to leave by a certain date.
I don’t know if the landlord was trying to call the cops, but he should have. Deadbeats/problem tenants are all crazy/unpredictable. It doesn’t matter how “goofy” or harmless they come across. You just never know what’s in their mind, so it’s best to get police involved as soon as anything crazy like that happens and not taking matters into your hands.

That’s the real burn, because while they stop and frisk even though doing that tactic is reliant on a judgement call, they refuse to utilize the same method when people call cops with a real complaint. Just like that woman who got murdered by her son in her apartment, the cops showed and made no effort to help but made more effort to get out filing a report.

Eh, I just realized how contradictory I sounded in my initial response.
What I meant by cops not helping is that in terms of landlord and tenant disputes, they won’t do anything about a tenant if he’s clearly acting aggressively or being destructive in some way. Like, if he’s tearing the apartment up, steal property, etc., there’s nothing the cops will do.
On the other hand, when you’re dealing with tenants like that and you’re so angry and frustrated that you want to handle matters on your own, it’s better to call the cops, because most deadbeat tenants are career criminals, mentally unbalanced or psychotic and will think nothing about stabbing you, shooting you, setting your house on fire, etc. if you even so much as look at them cross-eyed. Keep in mind that you’re not calling the cops for them to help you (they won’t), but to prevent you from making the same mistake that this landlord made.
