Abandon hope all ye who enter here
On the last New Bad Days post, Mayor de Blasio was questioned by CBS New York’s Marcia Kramer about the undeniable subway violence crisis that has gripped the city and flat out denied it, while using his talent with words to passively aggressively insinuate that she was fomenting fear and reinforcing lies. And in the process of that response, told thousands of commuters that they were only imagining the proliferation of random attacks, street fighting, muggings and even attacks on police officers that were occurring and accounted on the news and social media postings.
The arrogant mayor mused aloud:
“We had an incredible and total disruption in 2020. Our entire lives were turned upside down, a global pandemic, a perfect storm – and we are in the process of overcoming that,”
Exactly a week later, the unthinkable, mostly to the willfully disconnected mind of The Blaz, happened in the most horrific and bloodiest weekend on mass transit in decades.
In Far Rockaway at the Mott Ave. Station, a man was found dead on the A train with stab wounds all over his neck and chest, looking like he was slaughtered while he was sleeping on the seats. Hours later in Inwood at the 207th Station, a woman was also butchered to death on the A train. Both murders tragically took place at the last stops of the A line.
Other bloody random attacks occurred prior and after the slaughters at the 181 St. Station in Washington Heights on the same A transit line. Just before noon, a disabled 67-year-old homeless man got stabbed twice by a man on the platform when his assailant announced he was going to kill him and another man got stabbed twice while he was sleeping on the stairwell. Both victims survived.
All of the victims were homeless.
The killer, dubbed the “A Train Ripper” by the NY Post (which didn’t catch on) and got arrested later in the early evening after a massive NYPD deployment when cops found him on the street covered in blood and possessing a 6-inch knife with the handle wrapped in a bandanna. The man confessed to both homicides and the 2 other random attacks
Like his victims, the culprit was also homeless and living in a shelter in Gowanus. He was also mentally disturbed and had prior arrests, recently when he was caught on the streets possessing a knife and baggies of cocaine last October. A few days before the random attacks and office, the city gave him a housing voucher and he visited his sister in Washington Heights to help him move, but went on a homicidal violent rage for in a 12 hour span on the A train instead.
Despite safety net aid from the city and many chances from his family, the culprit could not be saved. And his victims as well, for they chose to chance sleeping on the subway instead of city shelters, on the general presumption that they are safer down there.
After much outcry, confirmed and established fears from commuters and kin of the victims of subway violence, and the expected overdue reaction to only respond to an emergency when deaths occur, de Blasio finally ordered the NYPD to deploy 644 cops to the transit system even if in the deep recesses of his mind he still believes all these attacks are only anecdotes. But it’s not just him. The longest interim president (or interim president of anything) of NYC Transit “Train Nanny” Sarah Feinberg still proclaims the subway is still safe to use and like the Blaz, accused local news of hyperbole in their coverage of the chaos on the rails and platforms that are scaring commuters into riding bikes and driving cars instead, even though she believes and has demanded that the subway needs a thousand more cops to make commuting safe again.
It’s this duplicity exhibited by both the Mayor and Feinberg that will not ameliorate the random and intentional acts of violence underground and on the Els nor will it instill confidence amongst citizens to bring subway ridership back to even a quarter of pre-pandemic levels. Not to mention to continuing perpetual failure of the city’s homeless and mental health services that’s another long sorry ass story).
