Brooklyn Shooting: Suspect in Custody

Posted on | April 14, 2022 | Comments Off on Brooklyn Shooting: Suspect in Custody

Right after I posted Wednesday about the Brooklyn subway shooting suspect (“Racial Paranoia in Post-Obama America”), Frank James was captured by NYPD in Lower Manhattan.

The smirking madman who turned a rush-hour commute into a bloody terror when he allegedly opened fire in a crowded New York subway car called Crime Stoppers on himself Wednesday morning — then calmly went for an afternoon stroll through the East Village while he waited for police to come get him.
“A call came in to Crime Stoppers … The guy says, ‘You know, I think you’re looking for me. I’m seeing my picture all over the news and I’ll be around this McDonald’s … I want to clear things up,’” law enforcement sources told The Post of the bizarre moment Frank James called cops on himself.
“So the unit responds and he’s not at the McDonald’s, so they start driving around and see a man who fits the description. When they take him into custody, they find his Wisconsin driver’s license.”
A couple of eagle-eyed New Yorkers also flagged down a pair of cops after they spotted James sauntering through the East Village, where he briefly sat down at an outdoor dining shed and charged his phone at a Link NYC hub.
The NYPD swooped in shortly after and put him in handcuffs. . . .

As might be expected, Frank James had a criminal record:

His troubles date back decades with a string of arrests according to authorities.
Court records obtained by the Action News Investigative team reveal a terroristic threat charge in New Jersey in the mid-1990s. He was sentenced to probation and ordered to undergo behavioral health treatment.
In 2008, it appeared the 62-year-old moved to the 3500 block of N. 18th St. in Tioga-Nicetown where he lived for several years.
He has nine prior arrests in New York City dating from 1992 to 1998 for offenses including possession of burglary tools, a criminal sex act and theft of service, NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig said in Wednesday news conference.
However, James had no previous felony convictions so was able to purchase a gun, according to Essig.

For all the “social justice” complaints about police brutality and mass incarceration, it seems to take an awful lot for a criminal to actually get sent to prison. One judge says, “Hey, this guy looks like a good candidate for probation,” and multiple arrests later, all his charges either got dismissed or pleaded down to misdemeanors. Despite this leniency, Frank James nevertheless believed himself to be the victim of racism, because that’s the go-to excuse now. Some white people may be envious of this “black victimhood privilege,” but it’s a loser mentality, the same as all those “incel” losers who idolize Elliot Rodger as a hero.
