Teen Faces Charges Following Taxi Driver’s Death

BRONX, N.Y. – A teenager is facing murder and robbery charges in the death of a taxi driver who was run over by his own cab in the Bronx.

The 16-year-old’s name is not being released, but police say he’s the person seen in surveillance video.

He’s accused of robbing Mohammed Zafrullah on Seward Avenue in Soundview Sunday night.

Zafrullah got out of his cab to chase the robber, but forgot to put the car in park.

The car ran him over and Zafrullah later died at the hospital.

Lyrics:
Ahhh! Such a beautiful day
The sun’s shining in a beautiful way
gonna take a shower, brush my teeth and
Life is ultimately meaningless
….Uhh (cough)…

but I’ll get out of the house
Get on the road, top down, hands out
Put on my favorite song and nod to the rhythm
The planet’s being destroyed by your carbon emissions

But I- I- , I’ll head to class
try my best on every test til I pass
and my grades are screaming in my face – Ayyyy
98 percent of what you learn is a waste.

I get to hang out with all my friends
My friends are the friendliest friends
Can’t think of a better way to spend my time
Your brain is flawed and all your friends will die
Nevermind!

I’m alive in the greatest nation!
So proud of- the exploitation of natives
This graceful bird means freedom for all
Tell that to the slaves and bald eagles aren’t bald

I can live in the moment, milk every second
at any time you could get clinical depression
But I’ll just be happy, no matter what’s in store
it’s quite genetic and we have no cure
uhh- at least

(CHORUS )
We are young
not for long
Life is fun
It only goes downhill
We gotta make the most of it, Make the most of it
or you’ll regret it
We are young
For now
Life is fun
for some people
We gotta make the most of it, Make the most of it
Good luck

Woo! I got a brand new job today!
Doin stuff that’ll help the economy
I’ll save money and buy things at the store
Banks can crash and capitalism is flawed

And it’s all because of my hard work
And the thousand advantages you lucked into at birth
I put a lotta effort in my resume!
Good thing you don’t have a black person’s name

I’m proud to be a functioning member of society
Finally, I can be the citizen I dream to be
part of the community, contribute with my tax
What could possibly stop me?
The shrinking middle class

I’ve at least got a nice stable job
Until it’s outsourced to china or replaced by a robot
OH GOD- Well then I could relax a bit
You’ll be empty with nothing to distract from it

But man I’m a passionate graduate
I can be different and I have a career paths to pick from
I could be a rapper or an animator if I’m lucky
Neither of those will make you happy, trust me

I’m able to choose what I pursue
You’re a slave to people born richer than you
Then screw it, I’ll keep going in
then I’ll party on the weekend and sing

Thanks to autotune

(CHORUS )

Life is a wonder
You’ll never know the answer

Nature is a miracle
Natural disasters

It’s good to be alive
You could wake up with cancer

But I’m healthy
Healthy people still get cancer

I love this show
It’s the last episode

The sun is shining
It’s going to explode

Every species is beautiful and unique though
Children have malaria thanks to mosquitoes

I met a cute girl with a ponytail
Statistically that relationship is going to fail

I have a wonderful family, it’s like no other
You’re not special and one day you’ll bury your mother

No matter what I can find a home!
We. Will. All. Die. Alone.

There’s amazing potential in every human on earth
There’s no escaping the heat death of the universe

I don’t have to live life based on negative parts
No matter how bad they are, they’re just thoughts

Yeah that’s fair
wait really?
yeah that seems reasonable
wait-wait-wait-wait but you were just telling me
whatever man, I dunno, live your life how you want,
I’m not forcing you to do anything, I’m just saying.
Oh…Well in that case…

(CHORUS )
