The Issue: A nurse who died from her accidents after being knocked to the floor in Times Square.
The Post does the finest crime reporting in New York City, particularly throughout these horrible Mayor de Blasio years (“Now the charge is murder,” Oct. 11).
The story of the killing of the pretty oncology nurse Maria Ambrocio, allegedly by the deranged Jermain Foster, who was homeless and reckless, sadly serves as the excellent instance of a mighty metropolis ruined by criminals hailed as “victims” by the worst mayor in US historical past.
And not a peep of sorrow from de Blasio’s workplace.
Palm Desert, Calif.
Only when the thugs and the violent mentally challenged are completely faraway from the streets will productive residents resembling Maria Ambrocio cease tragically dying at the arms of evil.
Residents of New York want to pay heed, as a result of they or members of their household can even fall sufferer to the avenue predators.
As lengthy as the police have their arms tied, they can not assist you to.
Follow your frequent sense and vote for the candidates who’re extra involved about the victims, moderately than the criminals.
How rather more can we take, studying and listening to each day about the maimings and murders of harmless individuals of all ages?
Why do now we have elected officers, whose salaries we pay, if not to assist and shield us? They are failing.
They have the energy to make adjustments however not the braveness. They are so afraid of doing or saying something that can upset the socialists who’re serving to destroy our metropolis and nation.
It appears to be like as if all that pursuits them are the three Ps: energy, pensions and perks. How unhappy.
It’s all nicely and good that the alleged perpetrator of Maria Ambrocio’s homicide was apprehended, however she was failed by the incompetence of the liberal insurance policies that permit such individuals again on the streets.

The Issue: Pope Francis’ assembly with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the Vatican final week.
As a Catholic, I used to be appalled that the pope met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (“ ‘Lucky’ break$,” Miranda Devine, Oct. 11).
Her stance on abortion is towards the whole lot our faith stands for. Here now we have a pope who appears to associate with her and the president’s views on abortion, even late-term abortions.
I assume one doesn’t have to marvel why increasingly Catholics determine not to apply. You can associate with killing the unborn and permitting these politicians to obtain the sacrament of communion, however God forbid you’re divorced — that’s a no-no.
Hypocrites are operating the church. It’s time for the pope to rethink his positions.
Although I normally agree with Devine, I don’t assume that she ought to have discovered it “disconcerting to see abortion enthusiast Nancy Pelosi receive such a warm welcome from Pope Francis at the Vatican last week.”
I’m positive that Pope Francis realizes that it’s at all times a good suggestion to preserve a dialogue going between pro-lifers and pro-choicers.
I’m additionally positive he realizes that any girl who loses her child to abortion is as a lot of a sufferer as her child. That is why we should at all times have sympathy and compassion for the girls who lose their infants to abortion.
