ASSEMBLYMAN SAM PIROZZOLO STATEMENT ON SENSELESS STABBING AT THE GREAT KILLS TRAIN STATION
Update regarding the incident: A 13 year old girl has been arrested in connection with the stabbing, which occurred in the afternoon at the Great Kills train station, after a dispute that arose on the train. A 51 year old man was stabbed in the back, and survived with injuries.
Following a press conference hosted by Borough President Vito Fossella, regarding a brutal stabbing that took place Friday, April 21st, at the Great Kills Train Station, Assemblyman Sam Pirozzolo (R-Mid Island/North Shore) issued the following statement:
“Regardless of which part of Staten Island you live in, behavior like the brutal stabbing that took place at the Great Kills Train Station is completely unacceptable. This senseless violence serves as a chilling reminder that Staten Island is not immune from the crime wave that is crashing into our city, and that it is long past time to make critical reforms to our laws to hold criminals accountable, irrespective of their age. This is why I fight every day in Albany to repeal the bail laws and hold the one-party supermajority to account. I make it known that Staten Islanders are fed up with the revolving door criminal justice system that protects criminals and creates victims.” Said Pirozzolo
“I want to thank Borough President Vito Fossella and my colleagues in government for hosting this event today, to bring attention to this shocking crime and outline the important steps that we collectively need to take to put an end to it.”
