31 year old Erika Menendez told New York police she committed the crime because she remembered the 911 attack and hates Muslims and Hindus and because she thought pushing someone off the platform onto the tracks ‘would be cool’.
Menendez was arrested and tried for committing a ‘hate crime’. In court she laughed uncontrollably. Dietrich Epperson, Menendez lawyer told the judge his client doesn’t think her case is ‘funny’ and doesn’t act any differently in court than she does in his office.
The woman declared why she pushed 46 year old Sunando Sen off the platform.
“I pushed a Muslim in front of the train because I hate Hindus and Muslims. Since they destroyed the Twin Towers in 2001 I have been beating them up.”
When Menendez was asked for her motive she simply answered: “No reason. I pushed him in front of the train because I thought it would be cool.”
Sen was pushed off the platform on Thursday. He didn’t survive the fall. Friends say he lived in Queens for over ten years, worked as a graphics designer and owned a coffee shop.
Erika Menendez was arrested after police released mug drawings and camera photos. A pedestrian recognized her and warned authorities.
