    The daylight assassin who shot her ex-lover, a mother-of-two, dead in the street on Wednesday should be treated as the victim of 'intergenerational trauma' who 'deserves compassion', according to a Democratic city council candidate.  Latisha Bell, 38, is in custody now for the murder of her 52-year-old girlfriend Nichelle Thomas.  On Wednesday, she walked up to her in the street in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and shot her in the back of the head then, hours later, handed herself in to police.  Her sister has since revealed that she has mental health problems and that the pair were together for 20 years before splitting three years ago. It's unclear where Latisha was able to get a gun; New York is a red flag law state which prevents people with a documented history of mental illness from buying firearms.  Her sister told DailyMail.com that Nichelle did something to make Latisha snap, but wouldn't say what it was. That was what prompted her to commit murder suddenly.   But on Thursday, Brandon West, the Democratic candidate for District 39 (Park Slope-Gowanus) said that it was...

The most recent example reportedly occurred in Manhattan's Union Square Park where police say they busted a 37-year-old man Wednesday in the act of defacing the park's statue of George Washington in broad daylight, the New York Post reported.
