“Hitler Should Have Killed You All” Kid Spitter Arrested & Identified as Christina Darling
I am filing this one under People With Really Not Appropriate Surnames:
The woman who allegedly told three Jewish kids “Hitler should have killed you all” before spitting on an 8-year-old boy in Brooklyn has been arrested, cops said Friday.
Suspect Christina Darling, a 21-year-old student at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, was busted Friday morning and charged with aggravated harassment and menacing, both as hate crimes, and acting in a manner injurious to a child, NYPD Hate Crimes said.
“I’m glad she was found & charged with a crime but what in G-d’s name is going on in this country that an adult would target innocent kids with such hatred?” former state Assemblyman Dov Hikind of Brooklyn raged on Twitter.
Darling is accused of storming up to the boy, who was with two other kids, around 12:30 p.m. Jan. 14 on Avenue P near Coleman Street in Marine Park, about five blocks from her home, police said.
She snarled at the kids, “Hitler should have killed you all. I’ll kill you and know where you live,” cops said.
Footage released by the NYPD on Tuesday shows Christina standing directly in front of the kids as she spat on the boy, cops said. Christina, who wore an orange hoodie with black leggings and black Ugg-style boots, fled after she accosted the kids, police said. Details of how cops tracked her down weren’t immediately known.
Not to mention People With Really Not Suitable Study Majors.
A psychology student has been arrested for a hate crime after allegedly hurling anti-Semitic slurs at three Jewish children before spitting on one in Brooklyn last week.
Christina Darling, 21, was arrested on Friday and has been charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing, the NYPD Hate Crimes unit tweeted.
Meanwhile, her mother has invoked the same defense the family of the Texas synagogue hostage-taker invoked:
The suspect’s distraught mother told The Post on Friday that her daughter “has mental problems.”
“She needs to get help, it’s not like she hates Jews,” mom Michelle Darling insisted.
And perhaps Darling herself will invoke the “Some of my best friends are Jewish” defense:
Still, the allegations against Darling came as a surprise to the former classmate, since their high school was diverse and the suspect had Jewish friends.
But “she does have that temper,” the classmate claimed. “She gets annoyed very easily. She is also capable of saying hurtful things when she’s upset … which is one of the reasons why we stopped being friends.”
Another woman who also asked not be identified said she met Darling while at summer camp and last spoke to her five years ago.
“I’m shocked” at the allegations, the former friend said. “Our friends at the time were mostly Jewish.”
But don’t think she follows the antisemite template to the letter:
“I know she had a thing against Hasidic Jews, but I never knew it was this severe,” Yorrick told The Post of Christina Darling on Friday. “She would bad-mouth and talk down on them. She said they were annoying, that they don’t deserve to be around and should all go back to Israel – things along those lines.”
