a month ago in New YorkBrooklynsunset park36th StreetMetro stationThe African-American gunman, Frank James, who shot and wounded more than a dozen people, was tried in Brooklyn Federal Court on the 13th; But he was not only frivolous, he told the judge he felt “beautiful”), and even denied the terrorist attack charge.

James, 62, who was born in the Bronx, said little in court other than that he understood the charges, his current rights, and his “ability” to stand trial.


James is accused of firing 33 rounds of bullets at an N train bound for Manhattan on April 12, and also detonating a smoke bomb as the subway was pulled into Sunset Park station; In this case ten people got hit by bullets and another 19 people were killed and injured.

Court records show that James, dressed in a khaki prison uniform with a blue surgical mask on his face, faces two charges – a terrorist attack against the mass transit system and opening a mass transit system. Discharging a firearm during a crime of violence, he faces life in prison if convicted.

As Judge William Kuntz read the indictment against James, the defendant looked at the judge and then at the table in front of him; James was stunned when Kuntz said the government might ask for his assets to be confiscated after a sentence. Eyes closed, eyebrows raised.

At the conclusion of the proceedings, he was remanded to federal custody without bail.
