Maksim Gelman stabbing spree

The Maksim Gelman stabbing spree was a 28-hour killing spree lasting from February 11 to 12, 2011, in New York City, which involved the killing of four people and the wounding of five others. Maksim Gelman pleaded guilty to the crimes. Just after 5:00 a.m. on February 11, 2011, Gelman stabbed and killed his stepfather, Aleksandr Kuznetsov, in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn after an argument with his mother about driving Kuznetsov's vehicle. According to Gelman, he believed DEA agents were after him and planned to flee to the Dominican Republic, he claimed he woke his mother to find out where his passport was, this developed into an argument as his mother believed he was drunk. Their argument awoke Kuznetsov. Gelman stabbed Kuznetsov repeatedly; when the knife broke, Gelman continued the attack with a carving fork stabbing Kuznetsov 55 times. His mother was not physically hurt. Gelman took the vehicle and sped off in it, running over a crossing guard and breaking her leg. Gelman stated that since he knew he would be caught, he was going to take down "rats" who had wronged him.

Gelman went to the house of a female acquaintance named Yelena Bulchenko, where he killed her mother, Anna, at about 10:30 a.m. He allegedly left the crime scene and waited several hours for Yelena, staying at a friend's house, to return home. Once she did, she found Anna dead and called 9-1-1, but Gelman was on his way back to the scene to check if she returned home. Upon arrival at about 4:00 p.m. he spotted her outside on the phone and got out of the car, upon which she yelled at him. He hid the knife in his jacket sleeve and approached her. However, Gelman caught up with her and stabbed her eleven times, killing her, before speeding off in Kuznetsov's car. Ramming into another car, Gelman stabbed and wounded the driver, Arthur DiCrescento, three times when he confronted him, before carjacking the vehicle. Gelman ran down 62-year-old pedestrian Stephen Tanenbaum, who subsequently died of his injuries. Afterwards, Gelman abandoned DiCrescento's car just before 1:00 a.m. of February 12 and hailed a livery cab before stabbing its driver, Fitz Fullerton.

He approached another car with a couple inside and attacked the driver, Shelden Pottinger, stabbing him multiple times in the hand. He stole Pottinger's vehicle and drove off in it. After boarding a northbound 3 train at 34th Street - Penn Station just after 8:00 a.m. he stabbed Joseph Lozito, a ticket seller at Lincoln Center. By this time, passengers recognized him from a newspaper article about his killing spree and notified authorities. According to initial report, Gelman started banging on the door of a motorman's cab, demanding to be let in, at which point two police officers assigned to the manhunt arrived and subdued him after a struggle with Lozito's help. According to a January 2012 New York Times story, Gelman knocked on the train conductor's booth and identified himself as a police officer. Lozito claimed that officers Terrance Howell and Tamara Taylor "hid" in the motorman's cab while Lozito was engaging in a physical confrontation with Gelman and did not come out until he had disarmed Gelman and pinned him on the ground.

Lozito tried to sue the police for failing to intervene earlier. Maksim Gelman was born in Ukraine, he was unemployed at the time of the stabbing spree. Gelman's father had emigrated from Ukraine to the United States in 1994. Gelman and his mother Svetlana joined him two years and they all moved to New York. Maksim and Svetlana remained in the U. S. after Gelman's father returned to Ukraine upon gaining U. S. citizenship. His father was killed in Ukraine after his return. Maksim became a U. S. citizen in 2005. Gelman attended James Madison High School before being transferred to Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, according to a former student there, although it is unclear whether he graduated, he was known around the school as being a skateboarder. His unpopularity left him without many friends or girlfriends, which amplified his paranoid and antisocial tendencies, he built a record with law enforcement after being arrested many times for graffiti-related offenses. Among graffiti artists, the few who knew of him viewed him as a unwanted troublemaker.

Gelman, besides being a dealer of cocaine, prescription pills, PCP, had been arrested for a number of charges, including possession of cocaine and for graffiti vandalism. Four people were killed during the stabbing spree, an additional five others were wounded.

While being led from the police precinct to the courthouse, in front of a crowd of onlookers and reporters, Gelman showed no remorse, saying that he had been "set up." Although no motive for the murders has been yet offered by the authorities, it has been speculated in the media that the rampage was triggered by Gelman's advances being scorned by Yelena Bulchenko.

On November 30, 2011, Gelman pleaded guilty to all charges

John Bennett (hurler)

John Bennett was an Irish hurler whose league and championship career with the Cork senior team spanned eight years from 1960 to 1968. He is regarded as one of Cork's greatest players. Born in Douglas on the south side of Cork city, Bennett was introduced to hurling in his youth; the lack of an underage structure with the Douglas club prompted his move to Blackrock where he joined the senior team. Bennett went on to enjoy a successful career with the club and won two county senior championship medals; as Gaelic footballer with St. Michael's, he finished his club career with Douglas. Bennett made his debut on the inter-county scene when he was added to the Cork senior panel for the 1960 championship. Over the next few years he found it difficult to establish himself on the team, however, by 1966 he was a regular in the forward line. Bennett won a set of Munster medals that year, he played his last game for Cork in July 1968. In 1965 Bennett lined out with the Munster inter-provincial team, however, he never won a Railway Cup medal.

In retirement from playing Bennett became involved in administrative affairs. He was a selector with the Blackrock senior team before serving as club chairman for six years; as a selector with the Cork senior team Bennett helped guide the team to Munster and National Hurling League successes in 1972. Bennett died on 10 August 2016. Although eligible to play with the Douglas club, Bennett transferred to Blackrock who were in the midst of a 25-year era without success. In 1954 he was at right wing-forward as Blackrock qualified for their first county final in six years; the Rockies fielded a young team, Glen Rovers had eight inter-county players on their team and held a 2-4 to 0-2 half-time lead. Bennett's side fought back after the interval with goals from Eddie John O'Sullivan, Tom Furlong and Seán Horgan, leaving the result in doubt up to the end. At the full-time whistle Blackrock were defeated by 3-7 to 3-2. Two years in 1956 Blackrock qualified for a second county final in three years, with Glen Rovers providing the opposition once again.

The Glen were now regarded as a team in transition and were defeated by a Mick Cashman-captained Rockies on a scoreline of 2-10 to 2-2. It was Bennett's first championship medal and a first for Blackrock since 1931. After a six-point defeat by Glen Rovers in 1959, Blackrock were back in yet another county final in 1961. North Cork divisional side Avondhu were the opponents on that occasion and a fast-paced and high-scoring game developed over the hour. At the full-time whistle Blackrock were the champions by 4-10 to 3-7, with Bennett collecting a second championship medal. Bennett first played for Cork as a member of the senior hurling team, he made his senior championship debut on 31 July 1960 when he came on as a substitute in Cork's 4-13 to 4-11 Munster final defeat by Tipperary. After a decade in the wilderness Cork bounced back in 1966. A 4-9 to 2-9 defeat of Waterford in the provincial decider gave him his first Munster medal; the subsequent All-Ireland final on 4 September 1966 pitted Kilkenny against Cork for the first time in nineteen years.

Kilkenny were the favourites, however, a hat-trick of goals from Colm Sheehan gave Cork a merited 3-9 to 1-10 victory over an Eddie Keher-inspired Kilkenny. Not only was it a first championship for Cork in twelve years, but it was Bennett's first All-Ireland medal. Bennett retired from inter-county hurling following Cork's exit from the championship in 1968.
