Make no mistake: the violent stabbing murder of Ryan Carson, caught on gruesome video, was not random.
It was the inevitable outcome of New York city and state’s progressive policy choices.
Like the refusal to pass reforms so the city can get the dangerously mentally ill off the streets and into treatment.
But also our still-broken bail law that’s seen countless thugs and dealers walk free to target other law abiding citizens.
And our “Raise the Age” disaster, which upped the age of criminal responsibility while removing any serious consequences for young offenders and has driven teen violence and bloodshed skyward.
The progressive politicians responsible for driving those policies now have Carson’s blood on their hands — as they have the blood of so many others.
The tragedy occurred late night in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn; Carson’s killer appeared agitated and violent before the attack, kicking over scooters as he ran along the street.
He turned his rage on Carson, stabbing him in the chest.
Carson died in his girlfriend’s arms.

A suspect is now in custody over the killing: Brian Dowling, 18.
True to an all-too-common narrative, he’s a young man with a history of violence: summonses for disorderly contact, plus a 911 call from a relative after he blew up and went on a smashing spree at his girlfriend’s apartment after a fight in August.
