SH**HOLE NEWS: Commuter Killed After Being Pushed in Front of Moving NYC Subway Train in Unprovoked Attack; Career Criminal Accused of Fatally Shoving Straphanger Into Subway Train Flashes Sinister Grin, Shows No Remorse After Arrest

Commuter killed after being pushed in front of moving NYC subway train in unprovoked attack:
A commuter was struck and killed by a Manhattan subway train Monday after being shoved onto the tracks by an emotionally disturbed person in an unprovoked attack, according to police and sources.
The victim was pushed onto the tracks as a northbound 4 train was entering the East 125th Street and Lexington Avenue station in East Harlem just before 7 p.m., police sources said.
The train was unable to stop in time and fatally struck the individual, an adult male whose identity has not been released.
The man was pronounced dead shortly after and a suspect, described as an emotionally disturbed person, was taken into custody, according to the sources. Charges are pending.
The deadly shove comes amid a surge of violent crime within the city’s subway system including a high-profile deadly shooting on a crowded train car in Brooklyn earlier this month.
The number of felony assaults in the sprawling underground transit system jumped 53% last year from pre-pandemic times, with 570 such attacks in 2023 compared to 373 in 2019, data shows.
It’s unclear what is causing the alarming trend, but some incidents — perhaps including Monday’s deadly assault — point to mental illness as a potential contributing factor.
Half of the attacks on MTA workers in the subway system last year involved a suspect suffering from a mental illness. --->READ MORE HERE
Career criminal accused of fatally shoving straphanger into subway train flashes sinister grin, shows no remorse after arrest:
The deranged career criminal charged with shoving a straphanger to his death at a Manhattan train station showed no remorse as he was led out of an East Harlem precinct Tuesday to face murder charges — and even flashed a sinister grin.
Carlton McPherson, 24, is accused of pushing a 54-year-old Bronx man in front of a No. 4 train shortly before 7 p.m. Monday — the latest in a long line of arrests and disturbing incidents, police said.
McPherson, also of the Bronx, was walked from the 25th Precinct just after 9:35 a.m.
He was wearing a gray hoodie and black pants.
Before he officially came out of the precinct, he had a smirk on his face before trying to put his hoodie on.
Cops removed his hood, and during the walk to a car, he had a serious face and turned his head away from cameras. --->READ MORE HERE
