Anti-Asian American hate crime on NY subway platform?

Man pushed by bum into train, "Crushed like a rag doll"

From Eric Dondero:

An African-American man pushed an Asian man off the subway platform into an incoming train at the Times Square subway platform. The Asian man according to reports was "crushed like a rag doll." He frantically tried to escape, but was caught by the train and squashed into the platform.

Predictably, the liberal media in New York is playing it up as just a "mentally disturbed" man. There is no mention in any media of any racial motivations by the perpetrator. The supposedly right-leaning NY Post even avoids any hint that of a hate crime.

From the NY Post, "Queens dad pushed to his death by madman in Times Square subway station":
His attacker was last seen running out of the station’s 47th Street exit — at the north end of Times Square — heading northbound on Seventh Avenue. Cops last night were scouring surveillance video for signs of him.

The killer was described by police as black, 30 to 40 years old, about 5-foot-9, with short dreadlocks. He was wearing a white T-shirt, dark jacket, filthy jeans, black sneakers with a white stripe and a black beanie cap.
Of course, if the perpetrator had been white, and the victim black, Asian or Hispanic, unlikely he'd be written off as "mentally disturbed." More likely banner headlines like "Racist murder against black man in the heart of New York City."

What do you expect? Each car weighs 85,000 lbs, usually 10 cars. That's 425 tons. The guy should have laid down between the rails where there is a trough for that purpose. Of course it would have been better had the pusher ended up there.

One does not--nor should not give credit to Hate Crime ordinances. They are invalid. The analysis is correct: a (mentally disturbed) man murdered another man. How ever what does 'mentally disturbed' mean in that context? That he is not responsible? Or may have a justifiable reason because he is mentally disturbed?

Wow, Wesley said something comprehensible and that I may agree with.
