Plainsboro, N.J.: Ms. Ocasio-Cortez: You had the gall to state that “societal issues were at play” with the three young men who brutally murdered Tessa Majors (“Tessa suspects also tragic: AOC” Feb. 23). Are you serious? Majors was approached by three thugs with intent to do harm. She was brutally stabbed to death for no reason. They took off like the cowards that they are, leaving her to die on the sidewalk. Yet you consider this “societal issues.”
Majors had the right to graduate from college, make music, read literature, find a job to her liking, get married, have children and be a contributing member of society. Did you not think of this when you commented on “the tragedy of intergenerational poverty”? Majors was in college, trying to make this world a better place. This is more than I can say for the killers.
What will you say to the people who hid Rashaun Weaver? Do you think this was a good idea? They gave sanctuary to an accused murderer. Do you consider this behavior a “societal issue”?
How could you further disrupt the lives of Tessa’s family with such brainless comments? Are you not aware that when an innocent victim is murdered, an entire family dies along with the victim? Why don’t you do your community and the people you were elected to serve a big favor and go back to bartending? You are a disaster and a disgrace as an elected official. Judy Thorpe
Lackawaxen, Pa.: I agree with almost everything Voicer Anthony Posada wrote and I am a fan of full disclosure, but I believe it would have been prudent of him to have omitted his little anecdote about being busted for possession as the result of a racially or ethnically motivated stop and frisk by NYPD. There is little advantage to establishing that an otherwise Fourth Amendment violation was, in fact, efficacious. It only tips the balancing act in which courts engage, setting government interest in public safety against guaranteed civil liberties. John A. MacKinnon
