Mental illness or just a hate crime?

I'm sure this woman will have her mental health thoroughly evaluated. I mean what sane person does such a thing?! It also makes me wonder why they don't put up railings, so this can't happen again.

  • Not a mental illness issue as far as committing the crime. She has beat up others on the past. This is not a psychotic break from reality. She fled the scene deliberately. She may have a mental illness but it is not an excuse. Hate crime or not....whatever you call, she has been loathing and harboring disdain for those she associates with 911 for a long time. Her act may not have been premeditated but her intentions were clear way before she got to that platform: hurt all people I think are terrorists.

  • Hate crime, she hates Muslims and Hindus. She's had issues since 9-11, it happens.

  • Both. But I agree with NP... let's just ban subways... or maybe let's just ban people.

  • I just heard this morning. She said, she did it because she thought he was a Muslim.  So if that is true.  Hate crime.

  • She might have a mental illness but she knew what she was doing.,  She ran away from the crime scene right after.

  • Predudice is not a mental illness. She feels she has the right to kill because of an action taken by a certain group against her country.
    I understand the anger. Unless they can find that she was directly devistated by 9-11, I will hope that they do not say it is a mental illness.

  • I remember a show called Homicide Life on the streets that had epiosodes based on actual events and one was similar to this. A mentally ill man going around pushing people in front of the trains in NY and one man got caught between the train and the edge of it, he later died but this happens far too much and wonder why they do not set up some sort of barrier to protect people from being pushed onto the tracks.
