Hispanic Woman Charged With Hate Crime For Pushing Muslim Man on Subway Tracks

The New York Police Department released video of the woman who pushed a man a man to his death on subway tracks at the Queens Boulevard and 40th Street-Lowery Street station on Thursday.

Today a woman was arrested and charged with a hate crime for pushing the man on the tracks. The woman, Erika Menendez, said she pushed the man on the tracks because she hates Hindus and Muslims and has ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers.
The New York Times reported:

A 31-year-old woman was arrested on Saturday and charged with a hate crime in connection with the death of a man who was pushed onto the tracks of an elevated subway station in Queens and crushed by an oncoming train.

The woman, Erika Menendez of the Bronx, has been charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime, Richard A. Brown, the Queens district attorney, said.

“The defendant is accused of committing what is every subway commuter’s nightmare,” Mr. Brown said in an interview. “Being suddenly and senselessly pushed into the path of an oncoming train.”

Mr. Brown quoting Ms. Menendez as telling the police, “I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers I’ve been beating them up.”

Ms. Menendez conflated the Muslim and Hindu faiths both in her comments to the police and in her target for attack, officials said.

    [The victim, Sunando Sen, was born in India and, according to a roommate, was raised Hindu.] maybe when the powers that be wrap up their vendatta on guns they might get around to that pesky mental health issue.

    Obama is surely involved in making this another Zimmerman show case…….but now he does it behind the scenes.

    Mr Brown quoting police? Hmmm, sure.

  • Alvin

    Quote: In a statement released by the district attorney’s office, Mr. Brown quoted Ms. Menendez, “in sum and substance,” as having told the police: “I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the twin towers I’ve been beating them up.” Ms. Menendez conflated the Muslim and Hindu faiths in her comments to the police and in her target for attack, officials said.

    in sum and substance means to summarize, not to quote. In essence. I would like to know EXACTLY what was said.

    For Gods Sake – GET THE HEADLINE RIGHT

    A Hindu is not a Muslim. Hindus have been fight Muslims for 1000 years. This woman is too ignorant to know the difference. I would, however, expect Gateway to know the difference.

  • bg #10

    No. Just a thoughtless comment, akin to my ‘good brave go cart’. Apologies.

    If I remember correctly, Hindus are NOT Muslims. India is a predominately Hindu country, the last terrorist attack at that taj mahal hotel a few years back was done by muslim extremists. Hindus did not do this, it was muslim extremists — they are not the same religion, and from what I’ve read India still deals to control and stop muslim extremists, especially coming over from Pakistan.

  • a former dem

    The post title is wrong. The article says, he was a US citizen, who was a Hindu, not Muslim, who was killed by this crazy hate filled woman.

  • Prosoldier

    The hate-crime charge was an afterthought. This was murder pure and simple. The hate-crime charge was added later so they could say, “SEE, WHITE PEOPLE!!! WE CHARGE EVERYONE WITH HATE-CRIMES…NOT JUST YOU!!” It was just convenient to have a person of a different ethnicity perpetuate the murder (of an alleged muslim especially) in front of a camera.

  • sam

    I can’t wait for CAIR to link to Gateway Pundit as it lists its latest fabricated hate crime against Muslims. Even though the victim was Hindu, CAIR will gladly point out that a anti-Muslim conservative website validates its claim, so it MUST be true. Nice going, Hoft.

    “whew”.. 😀

    i too wish my enemy (Islamists, Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, ISNA, Salafi, etc) ill.. that said, even though many have been truly deceived, not all Muslims are my enemy, nor are all Hindu or Hispanic, that also said, there are plenty of all ilk who are the enemy of all that is good.. 🙁

    I agree and being in Texas where Hispanics have been here longer than gringos they are a good people, although the cartel types can be as vicious as any Hezbollah type, which are often one in the same. Howbeit having a touch of the flu has put my brain and my typing fingers at disjunction hence the thoughtless comment.

    #11 Two weeks ago a black convert to islam (i.e MUSLIM) pushed a non muslim man into the train’s path to his death, in accordance with allah’s will. Did you call this a hate crime? It was, of course. But no, you didn’t call this a hate crime. (It might also be classified a workplace incident, like the Ft. Hood massacre.)

    The lady perp suffers from America’s number 1 problem; ignorance. She thought she was getting pay-back (push-back) against the perpetrators of 9/11…..but alas, there is a difference between muslims and hindus.Thus it can’t be a hate crime if she’s just stupid, right? Right? C’mon. Give this lady a break, she’s couldn’t help being ignorant.

    #48,Thanks! I was just gonna post that story. They deliberately covered up the Fact that the man was muslim who pushed the Korean gentleman off of the platform into an incoming train several weeks ago.

  • greenfairie

    The woman’s not a bigot, she is insane.

  • sayitnow

    A Black Muslim murdered a Korean by pushing him onto an incoming subway train. Now a Hispanic women does the same to another Asian man from India. Asian’s are frequently victims of urban hate crimes. When is somebody going to lead a protest on behalf of Asian Americans?
