    Gang Member Kills NYC EMT With Stolen Ambulance



    The man arrested for running over FDNY emergency medical technician Yadira Arroyo and killing her after stealing her ambulance in the Bronx has a long arrest record and a history of mental illness, sources said.

    Jose Gonzalez, 25, who goes by the nickname “Breezy Blood” and is a Bloods gang member, has 31 past arrests — plus six other contacts with cops related to mental illness or injury, according to police sources.

    He lives in Fordham Heights in the Bronx.

    He is white, his victim was Latina, and his captor (her partner) is black. If this man had been properly dealt with by the criminal justice system beforehand, he would not have been free to kill this mother of five. To the degree that his ethnicity influenced the judges who sentenced him, the entire community is now paying for their racism.

    Actually I think it more likely not enough felonies with high sentences that enable placement in prison or a mental health forensics facility. Too bad. With his prior record he would have been at least put in a facility where he would be unable to prey on the public, prior to the early eighties. At least in most states.

    I was referring to the ENORMOUS disparity in sentences for white and nonwhite defendants. There is injustice in failing to sentence violent people to ENOUGH time because they are white, just as there is in sentencing nonwhite people to TOO MUCH time.

    I still think it's the mentally ill thingy rearing its ugly head again and again and again. In this case.

    Jose Gonzalez is Latino, the same ethnicity as his victim.

    Your thread reeks of Bigotry.

    Yes ...

    I can see how that can happen every time a situation is viewed threw the prism of racism and prejudice.

    Looks like the Bloods aren't too picky about who they let into their club.
