“He doesn’t deserve to be on the street . . . He killed poor, innocent children’’
Christopher Thomas, the perpetrator of the infamous “Palm Sunday Massacre” that left ten people dead, has been released from prison. In 1984, Thomas slaughtered these people, eight of whom were children, for reasons still unknown.
The fiend behind one of the most infamous mass shootings in city history — the “Palm Sunday Massacre” that left eight children and two young moms dead in Brooklyn in 1984 — has been quietly released from an upstate prison.
Christopher Thomas slaughtered the innocents in an East New York apartment on a rainy Palm Sunday — the blood-soaked culmination of a beef with the home’s owner, convicted cocaine dealer Enrique Bermudez.
Thomas, now 68, was released nearly three months ago and is believed to be living in Queens.
“He doesn’t deserve to be on the street . . . He killed poor, innocent children,’’ retired NYPD Lt. Herbert Hohmann, who led the investigation and testified against Thomas, told The Post on Friday.
. . . . Detectives walked in to find the television on and many of the tiny victims still sitting upright as though frozen at the moment Thomas executed them at close range with gunshots to the head.
“One child was eating chocolate pudding, sitting on the couch in a suspended state, with the spoon still in her hand, dead,” retired NYPD Detective Bo Dietl told The Post in 2009 ahead of Thomas’ first parole hearing. “There were victims sitting around the living room with fear on their faces after being systematically shot.”
