The Problem: A mass shooting in a subway car on the N Line, injuring 19 people in Sunset Park.
Another devastating attack on New Yorkers (“Terror in the N-Train” April 13).
Watching the videos recorded during the chaos, I realized with tears and pride that the victims of this attack, who managed to exit the smoky subway cars, did not run amok in hysterics, but ran amok in a fast and orderly manner. Other passengers stayed behind on the platform to help and comfort the wounded.
Talk hard about New York. Kudos and God’s blessings to all these brave and courageous New Yorkers.
As a former New Yorker, I am deeply saddened and concerned by the recent mass shooting in Brooklyn.
It is high time to prioritize the terrible epidemic of violence in our communities by better funding our police force and working with them to remove pervasive illegal weapons and dangerous criminals from our communities.
We need to keep hardened lifelong criminals in jail instead of letting them ride the merry-go-round of our “justice” system that only encourages them to continue breaking the law.
I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the victims and their families. Enough is enough.
As someone who lived in New York City most of my life until I moved to Florida, I can only say how disgusted I am with the entire political class.
My aunt, who lives in Washington Heights and has never had a driver’s license, is now terrified of riding the subway — something she’s done without thinking her entire life. Well done Democrats.
That’s not going to change until people stand up and say “enough.” Until then, the hell slide will only accelerate.
I heard Mayor Adams comment about selfless New Yorkers rushing to each other’s aid after the subway shooting.
Too bad New York’s elected officials aren’t reacting in the same way.
It’s about time New Yorkers voted for the people who will get their jobs done and keep the city safe.

Governor Hochul was speaking at the scene of the subway shooting in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. She went on to say that we are all sick of the New York shootings. Hochul didn’t do anything about it – just offered empty words.
Hochul also mentioned the teenager who was murdered by another teenager a few days ago. This teenager had a ghost gun, and now we have a different problem.
Where’s the person who’s actually going to do something about the New Yorkers’ bail problem? I think Hochul should join unemployment assistance along with her predecessor.
I think – and hope – Hochul made comments at Tuesday’s press conference.
In angry, high-pitched tones, she deplored the violence — this attack and the daily attacks on New Yorkers — and then uttered the usual platitudes about how tough New Yorkers are, how we’ll stand together — blah, blah, blah.
What was totally missing from this feigned outrage was a recognition that they and the actions of the state legislature caused this wave of violence and that the feeble amendments just passed will do nothing to help.
We hope that now everyone can see the Emperor’s lack of clothing and that we bid her and her minions a well-deserved farewell in November.
The policy of locking the doors at both ends of subway cars must be scrapped.
Doors are still operable on some lines, although it is against the rules to switch from car to car.
Imagine the horror of being locked in that car with that madman with no way out. MTA passengers should not be denied boarding, especially now that violent crime is rampant.
