In deepest Bloomtopia, in the heart of the greatest gun-free zone in the western hemisphere, a mass murder of five took place. The suspect, Ming Dong Chen, is a 25-year-old illegal immigrant from China, who’d been receiving mental health treatment intermittently from the New York authorities. Apparently, the Bloomberg approach of ingoring the mentally ill and small crimes — cops have recently been told to “back off” the homeless — while pursuing non-violent gun owners relentlessly isn’t working, at least, not if your goal is anything to do with violent crime.
Who could have anticipated that?
A crazed man turned a Sunset Park, Brooklyn, home into a slaughterhouse late Saturday, leaving a 37-year-old mom and her four young children stabbed to death.
Ming Dong Chen, a 25-year-old suspect — preliminarily identified as the children’s mentally troubled older cousin — was arrested after being subdued at the scene, his feet bare and soaked in blood.
Cops seized a machete and scissors from the home as evidence, a law enforcement source said.
The suspect, who neighbors said lived at the home, didn’t flinch as cops led him in handcuffs from the house of horrors, witnesses said — even as one of the children was removed from the house on a stretcher.
The top of the little boy’s yellow pajamas had been cut open at the front by paramedics in their struggle to save him.
He was pronounced dead early Sunday morning at Maimonides Hospital.
“He [the suspect] was bizarrely calm,” said one neighbor, who asked that his name not be used.
“He was completely composed and answering their questions — even as they brought out two black bags with the kids in them,” the neighbor said.
“He was still calmly answering their questions as the stretcher with the bloody child was rolled right past the car,” the neighbor said. “Again, he seemed unfazed.”
The children’s father came home from work too late to save his family, according to neighbors and law-enforcement sources, who stressed early Sunday that their information was still preliminary.
Police identified the victims as 1-year-old William Zhuo, a 5-year-old Kevin Zhuo, a 7-year-old Amy Zhuo, 9-year-old Linda Zhuo and 37-year-old Qiao Zhen Li.
The mother’s sister was present but unharmed, and called 911.
“The father walked in and grabbed [the stabber] and tried to stop him but it was too late,” said one law-enforcement source.
Boy, it’s sure a good thing New York wouldn’t let him have more than seven rounds in a magazine. Way to keep the public SAFE. Meanwhile, it wouldn’t be fair to lock up the insane, because their right to be nuts is, the ACLU patiently explains, superior to the right of this woman and these children 0– one of them an infant — to live.
Of course, the illegal alien angle is there, as it so often is in violent crime. Break one law, get benefits for life — no wonder they aren’t deterred by laws. This guy is probably shocked he got arrested. After all, he’s just butchering the people that lazy Americans won’t butcher. The Post is all over this like the scent of corruption on a Congressman — they’re the source of the information that the doer was an illegal — and no doubt they’ll have further updates in the days ahead. One of the updates is that one of the victims was beheaded, and another update is that Ming (the Merciless?) did it because the family was better off than he, and he didn’t think that was “fair.”
Dang, Bill deBlasio just lost one voter. But wait, it’s New York, they’ll bring him an absentee ballot in prison — and tell him how to fill it out.
Illegal immigration is criminal behavior. The best guide to future behavior is past behavior. What do those mean, when taken together? Look at the FBI’s Most Wanted lists. The current Ten Most Wanted List only has nine at-large fugitives on it (one perv — who was a university professor, naturally — was just caught) but four of the nine are foreigners: one Honduran, two Mexicans, one Ukrainian who also has Russian and Israeli passports. (Zero Arab terrorists. Not a priority for the Holder DOJ). Just doing the crimes lazy Americans won’t do. Or consider the Ten Most Wanted Murderers (this is one place the terrorists have been demoted to, along with a terrorist-ghetto list that’s predictably 90% Arabs), they’re mostly imports: one Malian (he’s the terrorist), four Mexicans, and a Costa Rican (the other Hispanic names on the list — quite a skew in this data set, eh — are Americans or have no nationality listed).
The Violent Crimes Junior Varsity top ten (these are the ones who haven’t been charged with murder. Yet): there’s only one man whose nationality is unlisted but was born in Mexico (so he could as easily be a US citizen), one Ukrainian skinhead who was involved in a fatal gay-bashing, and one Venezualan who’s wanted for two counts of negligent homicide. But the other seven are our own natives. These crimes, then, Americans still seem to take pride in doing. Go Team USA.
Exit question: The Boston Marathon bombers were on so many welfare subsidies that it raised them to the upper middle class. Their parents, who had returned to Russian Chechnya, were still receiving welfare by electronic transfer from Massachusetts. Since New York will not be beaten by Massachusetts on liberal coup-counting (even if the Yankees were done for the season long before the Red Sox this year), what will the Post be telling us this week about Ming the Merciless’s welfare bennies?
