Subway Murder: Anti-Muslim Hate Crime?

You may have read that a youngish woman has been arrested for the latest killing in the NYC subway system featuring a man pushed onto the tracks in front of an onrushing train.  Well, it turns out she has now been charged with a hate crime, and second-degree murder, based on anti-Muslim comments she made in relation to the victim.  The man, originally from India, was actually a Hindu.

UPDATES:  Guy who knew dead man writes about him movingly.  Also: Mayor Bloomberg says no big deal, look at how much the homicide rate has dropped.  Would he say same thing if victim was Jewish?
