Friends of murdered Brooklyn activist Ryan Thoresen Carson say he’d feel sorry for the teenage criminal who stabbed him to death, and would want his killing to be used to further advance left-wing policies in NYC

Carson was attacked at around 4am on Monday morning while waiting for a bus with his girlfriend, Claudia Morales, in Bedford Stuyvesant, New York. 

They had just arrived back in the city from a wedding in Long Island. His attacker has not yet been named. Police continue to hunt for the suspect, who locals say is a ‘teenager’. 

The youngster stabbed Carson to death, leaving him to die on the sidewalk while Morales stood over him. 

Despite the senseless violence, friends of the 32-year-old say it wouldn’t change his outlook on social justice.

The teenage suspect is now being hunted by the NYPD

‘I know he would have wanted people to use his death as a means to talk about structural wrongs in the city. 

‘I’m absolutely positive that he would immediately see that this was a person who was suffering from a lack of resources in our community, who probably needs better mental health support, possibly housing, possibly drug support, drug treatment. 

‘What he would want to avenge his death is for us to fix how broken this city is,’ New York State Assembly member Emily Gallagher told The Gothamist.

Carson worked for the New York Public Interest Research Group, a nonprofit where his work focused on environmental causes like reusable bottles. 

He spearheaded other liberal causes, like creating supervised drug injection sites across the city. 

Morales, according to now locked-down social media profiles, was an avid BLM activist who, among other remarks, used the cop-hating acronym ACAB in some posts.

Carson wasn’t as forthright in his criticism of law enforcement but he shared the same concern for police brutality. 

‘The fact of the matter is I’m f*****g scared. 

‘I spent this summer, like many of the past years of my life, watching people I care about get attacked by the police in the streets,’ he said in an October 2020 interview about his poetry. 

Friends of the pair are now fundraising to help Morales through her grief. They have raised $40,000 so far via a GoFundMe page. 

Among those who paid tribute to Carson today was Chuck Schumer. 

‘Ryan Carson threw himself into everything he did with passion and humanity. 

‘I worked with him on a big townhall he hosted with NYPIRG and on the Inflation Reduction Act. 

‘A rising talent and an extraordinary activist. May his memory and work inspire us,’ he said. 

‘This not just a loss for us. This is a loss for all of New York,’ friend Jaki Cohen also said of the climate and drug rehabilitation activist
