Claims to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

The man suspected of shooting up a Brooklyn subway train on Tuesday morning rush hour has been arrested by New York Police officers in New York’s East Village neighbourhood Wednesday afternoon. New York City officials said.

“My fellow New Yorkers: We got him. We got him,” Mayor Eric Adams said.

Frank James, 62, was arrested without incident on the street at about 1:40 p.m. after police got a tip on its Crime Stoppers hotline, NYPD commissioner Keechant Sewell said.

James is accused of setting off smoke bombs and firing a handgun 33 times on a crowded N train travelling towards the 36th Street station.

The terror attack left 29 people injured, including 10 shot with no life threatening injuries according to a NYPD statement.

“Five of the victims were young people commuting to school,” New York Governor Kathy Hochul said.

No motive so far in the attack but according to several of his “White people” hating rhetoric on social media it seems James had declared war on White people. In one of his videos he articulated why White people are angry with Black people. Because according to him Black people are slaves to White people and the freedom Black people enjoy was not given freely but through forcing white people.

He therefore called for Black people not to have any contact with White people.

“You know, it’s triggering a lot of negative thoughts of course,” he said in the video. “I do have a severe case of post-traumatic stress.”

James has also been accused of a federal crime. Terror or violent attacks on the mass transportation system is a federal crime and if convicted will spend the rest of his life in jail.

As they near the Sun, their gases sublimate and form long tails blustering away from the star. The tails can stretch for tens of thousands of kilometres, dwarfing even the Earth-Moon separation.
