NYC apartment murders show the world the pro-crime left has made

Welcome to the world you made, anti-cop leftists: Two Brooklyn men were murdered, execution-style, in the midst of a fight allegedly over complaints about noise; their killer is now dead as well.

Downstairs neighbor Jason Pass killed Bladimy Mathurin and his stepson Chinwai Mode — on video — after Mathurin’s wife, Marie Delille, had words with Pass, and Mathurin, armed with a pair of scissors, confronted him. 

The whole sad, ugly affair points to how far social order has decayed in New York: Four adults couldn’t resolve a basic domestic dispute without resorting to (in this case deadly) violence. 

Pass — who shot Mathurin in the back, finished him off with a shot to the head, and killed Mode despite his offering no apparent threat — then calmly rode an elevator down to the street. 

Police shot him fatally Tuesday during a traffic stop that he turned violent by charging cops with a knife.

That he felt the confidence necessary for either act is a testament to the damage years of anti-police rhetoric and policy can do. 


Cops identified the person who shot his neighbor and stepson as 47-year-old Jason Pass (seen above).

As is Mathurin’s approaching his neighbor armed with scissors. 

Police forces exist, above all, as visible assurance that the state will protect the law-abiding.

New York’s progressive politicians have hollowed out the state’s capacity to protect with a series of disastrous criminal justice “reforms.”

Such as bail laws that let violent, dangerous thugs go free. 

And “Raise the Age,” which set off a teen shooting catastrophe by hiking the age of criminal responsibility. 

Or insane discovery requirements that hamstring prosecutors.

In service to the same ideology, prosecutors themselves reduce charges or bring no case at all.

The fruits of these policies are not merely serious increases in crime (though crime is up: almost 30% over 2021, per the latest data). 

They produce an overall malaise that comes from Gothamites no longer having any confidence that the justice system will do anything

For latent sociopaths among us, it’s a license to live out their violent urges

The video of the killings is hard to watch.

But it should be required viewing for any and all New York electeds. 

They need to see the world they’ve made.
