From Fox 5 NY: A homeless man who used a metal rod to bludgeon four other homeless men to death in New York City was arrested holding the murder weapon covered with blood and hair and admitted that he was the person in a video of one of the attacks, prosecutors said Sunday.

Randy Santos was arraigned on charges of murder and attempted murder for the bloody rampage that happened early Saturday in Manhattan’s Chinatown. He did not enter a plea and was ordered held without bail.

A fifth homeless man who was injured in the attacks remained hospitalized in critical condition Sunday.

The 24-year-old Santos was carrying a metal rod covered with blood and hair when he was arrested near the scene of the attacks, prosecutors said.

They said Santos was shown video of one of the attacks while being interrogated by police and he acknowledged that he was the person in the video with a long metal object.

Santos underwent a psychiatric evaluation after his arrest, police said.

Santos, who has been arrested at least six other times in the past two years, three times on assault charges, used a Spanish interpreter in court. His defense team did not comment. He is due back in court Oct. 11.

Authorities say that on Saturday they received a 9-1-1 call for a person being assaulted around 1:50 a.m. near 2 Bowery. When responding officers arrived, they discovered an unconscious man lying on the ground with severe head trauma, and a second man with head trauma approached officers at the scene.

Two witnesses then told the officers that an unknown man, wearing a black jacket and black pants, struck the victim several times in the head with a metal pipe before running away westbound on Doyer Street.

Police began immediately searching for the suspect and found a man fitting the suspect’s description carrying a metal pipe at the intersection of Mulberry Street and Canal Street.

A search of the surrounding area revealed three more male victims, two in front of 2 East Broadway and one in front of 17 East Broadway. All of the men had severe head trauma and were pronounced dead at the scene.

The lone known survivor of the attacks was hospitalized in critical condition.

Santos’ relatives told The New York Daily News he had a history of drug use since his arrival to the United States from the Dominican Republic a handful of years ago.

His mother, Fioraliza Rodriguez, 55, told the paper she had kicked him out of her home about three years ago, after he assaulted her. But while she said she had been afraid of him, she said she “never thought he would kill someone.”

How many convictions does it take for Seattle City Attorney to place a homeless criminal in jail after his latest assault?

City bureaucrat, I mean attorney, Pete Holmes

We may never know what Seattle City Attorney Peter Holme’s magic number is because, apparently, one having 72 convictions – including 14 felonies – is not enough to warrant your butt being thrown in jail for ANOTHER assault.

As I’ve noted many times in the past, the city of Seattle does not hold the homeless accountable for their criminal actions. See examples here, here, here and here.

Why do the Seattle demorat bureaucrats allow this criminal behavior? My guess is they don’t want their official crime statistics to show any kind of correlation between the increase in the homeless population and an increase in crime. They also have a vested interest in keeping the homeless industrial complex alive.

A homeless man was recently arrested for sucker-punching a man on the street. The perp, Francisco Calderon, is a 55-year-old who was recently released from state custody. Calderon has been homeless and unemployed for decades and his rap sheet includes 72 convictions (that record includes 14 assaults).

According to the story from KOMO News, Calderon has been under the supervision of the Department of Corrections 14 times. The perp is also a known drug user.

So for Calderon’s latest sucker-punch attack (a 4th degree assault charge) what did the city recommended as a punishment?

The city wanted a plea deal in which the perp with 72 convictions would undergo a mental health evaluation, enroll in a drug treatment program and have two years probation. The perp would be released back onto the streets because he already had time served.

Fortunately, Seattle Municipal Court Judge Ed McKenna put a stop to this nonsense and sentenced Calderon to 364 days in jail stating, “I’m not sure I have ever seen a more significant history of violent offenses. Everything in that criminal history tells me that he’s a violent offender and is going to re-offend.”

Read about the city’s intent to give freedom to this perpetual homeless criminal at the KOMO story here.

Given all the details of Calderon’s past, it will make your blood boil that a public official would endanger the lives of his fellow citizens by giving a man with 72 convictions a chance to run free and injure another person.
