New York state has abolished and reestablished the death penalty numerous times. Too bad it’s not in effect now.
This is heartbreaking. This tragedy truly was senseless.
Bringing the murderer to justice is generally the first steps for families to move forward with their lives.
In this case, this seemed to be a senseless crime that ended up with a lovely young woman brutally murdered for no apparent reason.
How do you move forward from that?
Chanel Lewis, 20, is accused of murdering Karina Vetrano, 30, while she was jogging in a park in Queens.
Lewis claims that he was frustrated with loud noise, and he just ‘lost it’ when he saw Vetrano running towards him, so he started beating her to ‘let his emotions out’.
The 20-year-old explained that he headed to a park in the Howard Beach section of Queens on August 2 seeking some ‘peace and quiet’ after a man had come to his house with a group of friends and started playing loud music, reported DNAInfo New York.
While walking through Spring Creek Park, Lewis came across Vetrano, 30, who was out jogging alone.
‘She was running toward me and I just lost it,’ Lewis told investigators during questioning, according to the prosecutor. ‘She didn’t do anything. I was just mad at that time. I beat her to let my emotions out. I never really meant to hurt her, it just happened.‘
In another statement, Lewis said of Vetrano: ‘I fought with her for five minutes. She scratched my face. I hit her about five times and I knocked her out. Her teeth broke. I got madder and madder and I strangled her.‘ …
…Lewis also said that Vetrano’s shorts came off while he was dragging her into some bushes after she fell into a puddle. He has previously denied allegations of rape…
…Lewis was arrested in early February, nearly six months into the search for Vetrano’s killer, after he gave a voluntary cheek swab which matched DNA found under the victim’s fingernails.
While in custody, Lewis said he was sorry for his actions and asked to be given an opportunity to apologize to Vetrano’s family.
At one point he told a detective: ‘tell my mom that I’m sorry.’

It looks like his mom won’t believe him.
She maintains that he is innocent:
But let’s back up for one second…
This woman was murdered just because he wanted some ‘peace and quiet’ and needed to ‘let his emotions out’?
Are you kidding me?
He was having a bad day so he strangled an innocent woman to death?
What kind of a Piece of Shiitake does that?
He’ll be able to ponder that as he faces a good long time behind bars.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…

Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
