Eviction was Empire State Building Gunman’s Final Straw

Eviction was Empire State Building gunman’s final straw: police source

The laid-off designer who executed a former co-worker outside the Empire State Building spent two years blaming his victim for his financial woes — but he finally snapped when he learned he was being evicted from his Upper East Side apartment, The Post has learned.

“This was the final straw that pushed him over the edge,” a police source said yesterday. “He was blaming the victim for being out of work, having no money and now having no apartment.”

Shooter Jeffrey Johnson — who served in the Coast Guard as a petty officer second class in the 1970s — brooded over his dismissal from Hazan Import at 10 W. 33rd St., where he worked for six years.

He was laid off simply because “business was bad,” a Hazan employee said.

But for Johnson, the blame rested on salesman Steven Ercolino, who the shooter thought was not doing enough to push the products he designed, a source said.

Rest here…

    I hope you all had a chance to watch the C-Span viewing of the Ron Paul event that took place in Tampa on Sunday @ the Sundomb. Not broadcast by the main stream media (of course not)but the dome If not, they are going to re-play it again. Join the movement for Liberty! Vote Ron Paul president.

    So sorry for the loss of valuable lives..Why are the banks not begin prosecuted for the deaths of “All” murders and deaths nationally because of this fraud for profit, public service people and the people that are being bullied and now lets move to make these houses rental properties and continue to bleed “ALL” people. The continued BS being shoved down the peoples and public service employees throats ….this is vile. Remember who the real perpetrators are here. Oh and the Sheriff’s department is supposed to protect and answer to the people of each state under oath (remember the oath) and many are truly not aware of the real “lawful” procedures, they take orders only… as they themselves have been psychobabble. They do not answer to federal law or bankers, what the hell has happened here. We are ALL being Ruled by the Wrong People, we should not be ruled at all other than by each other. There is a way for all people to be free of this $lavery so we can live together in peace and not for profit $$$$$ ?!?!??! Look up Sheriff Mack and you will learn much. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiBcC8_goVg . Go join http://www.cspoa.org so we can take our country back. Your constitutional rights are in peril.
