The Cascading Failures of Affirmative Action that Led to “Dr.” Henry Bello’s Mass Shooting/Murder at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital

May I suggest the real origin of this tragedy:

1. Dr. Bello was sexually violent long before he went berserk;

2. What most of us don't know is that our justice system is filled with judges - white and black - who for various reasons treat our most violent criminals better than all the others. The most violent quickly learn from our judges that violence works; and

3. This is what happened with Dr Bello, isn't it? A judge gave Bello a sentence of community service for his first (media reported) sexual assault and attempted kidnapping of a young woman - a horrible crime. This minimal sentence reduced a felony to a minor misdemeanor. This is what allowed Ross to accept him into medical school, the state to license Dr. Bello, and the hospital to hire him. This is an unrecognized and very, very important factor in the U.S. problem with violent crime.

We will always have killers among us. But this tragedy would not have occurred, had a judge given Bello a felony sentence and put him behind bars the first time. Because Ross Medical School would never have accepted him, the state never licensed him, and the hospital never hired him. We truly need judges who give violent criminals sentences commensurate with their violence from the start. E Morgan

N.S.: Dr. Morgan’s observations are very true. However, readers of this blog have long been familiar with the practice of criminal justice affirmative action.
