2. Man Pushed Onto Subway Tracks in Hate-Motivated Crime
City: New York
December was a bad month for New York subways. Weeks after a man was pushed onto the subway tracks in Midtown Manhattan following a petty altercation, an Indian immigrant was shoved to his death in front of a Queens train. "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," cops said the suspect told detectives. The deranged woman reportedly broke into maniacal laughter after she was charged with a hate crime following the gruesome killing of the Hindu man.
