Times Square Subway Slay Suspect Naeem Davis Charged With Murder

Naeem Davis
The homeless thug who police say pushed a Queens man in front of a subway train on Monday has officially been charged with murder in the gruesome death, authorities said this afternoon.

Naeem Davis, 30, confessed yesterday that he and the victim, 58-year-old Ki Suk Han, had been arguing on their way into the Times Square Q Train subway stop on Monday afternoon. After the argument escalated, Davis pushed Han onto the tracks as a train was barreling into the station.

The train crushed Han to death.

Davis watched as the train hit Han, and reportedly told authorities that he "heard his torso snap."

There are reports that Han -- who had an empty bottle of vodka on him at the time -- was drunk at the time of the incident, and Davis claims he repeatedly told the Queens father to leave him alone. When Han continued to harass him, Davis claims, he pushed him onto the tracks.

In all, Davis has been charged with second-degree attempted murder and second-degree murder with depraved indifference to human life.

Which leads one to wonder why hadn’t Suk Han just left Davis alone? What was he hoping to achieve by approaching the deranged panhandler? Was this his way to console him, console himself inadvertently given the strife he had endured earlier that morning and the fact he was drinking, or was he just trying to reach out in earnest to an individual who he momentarily identified with and plead with him to rein in his obtrusive behavior?  Something that in the end may have paradoxically led to his own untimely demise?http://scallywagandvagabond.com/2012/12/subway-shoving-suspect-naeem-davis-now-insists-he-was-only-acting-in-self-defense/
