Homeless Man Pushes Girl In Front Of Train

According to Mail Online

The homeless man accused of shoving a student in front of a train yesterday appeared in court this morning rambling incoherently about people trying to kill him and seeing ‘colors and darkness’.

Hunter College student Maya Leggat, 21, received horrific injuries after she was allegedly shoved on to the tracks at White Plains station in New York after she refused to give money to Howard J. Mickens, 39.

Shocked commuters described seeing her mangled legs on the tracks, and some followed the panhandler and held him until police arrived.

He was charged with attempted murder and made a bizarre appearance in court today saying he was ‘guilty with an explanation’.

Maya is in stable condition at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla and is facing surgery after sustaining serious leg trauma, her brother told The Journal News.

Mickens appeared before White Plains City Court Judge Eric Press, who ordered him to undergo a psychiatric evaluation in the attempted murder case.

‘Can you make sure they’re not military?’ the 39-year-old askedabout his potential evaluators and when his lawyer advised him to be quiet, he ignored her and told the judge: ‘I don’t trust her. Sir, I am guilty with an explanation.’

When he was asked if he understood what was happening to him, he said: ‘No disrespect, judge. I just don’t want to get railroaded, especially by individuals who have been trying to kill me since I was a child.

‘When I close my eyes I see colors and darkness.’

The case was adjourned until October 25.

The victim’s brother told ABC 7: ‘I’m just thankful that she’s alive,’ adding that her condition was stable and she was due to have surgery.

WTF is guilty with an explanation?
