Under Rudy Giuliani, given his past history, he probably would have been locked up. Under Bill De Blasio, the mentally ill homeless people are making a comeback on the streets.
Via NY Post:
A homeless maniac bludgeoned four other vagrants to death as they slept on the sidewalks of Chinatown early Saturday — bashing in their skulls one by one with a scavenged metal bar during a senseless predawn murder spree.
Rodriguez “Randy” Santos is just 24, but already had what cops call a history of violent, random attacks when he allegedly approached his first victims, two men sprawled asleep side by side on cardboard bedding at Bowery and Doyers Street just before 2 a.m.
“They were sleeping. They never saw it coming,” one shocked police source told The Post.
After smashing the pair in the heads with the 15-pound, 3-foot-long piece of metal, Santos left the two men for dead and stalked for more victims, police said.
