The woman accused of pushing a man to his death under a 7 train in Queens last month told The New York Post in a jailhouse interview that she was having a rough day when she pushed Sunando Sen off the subway platform, but it wouldn't have happened if she'd managed to smoke some weed . "If I smoked a blunt that day, I wouldn’t have pushed him," she told the Post. She has some kind of a prescription she's supposed to take, but it makes her shaky and she prefers pot, she said. That day, she didn't have it, and she was in a bad mood. "I was homeless. I was hungry. I was fighting with my boyfriend. He came running up the stairs, and I just got up and pushed him." Menendez also wanted to clarify her hatred of Muslims and Hindus, who she says she's been "beating up ... for a long time" because of the 9/11 terrorist attacks: "I’m not mad about the people [who died]. I’m mad because I liked the buildings." With Menendez already deemed fit for trial, one does not envy this woman's defense lawyer.
