(Newser) – The daughter of a man pushed in front of a subway train and photographed a split-second before his death said yesterday after a suspect was arrested that it "would have been great" if someone had helped her father up but "what's done is done." Ki Suk Han's only child, 20-year-old Ashley, said at a news conference that her father was always willing to help someone. But when asked about why no one helped him up, she said: "What's done is done. ... The thought of someone helping him up in a matter of seconds would have been great."

Ashley stood with her mother, Serim Han, inside their Presbyterian church in Queens. The family came to the US from Korea about 25 years ago. They said Han was unemployed and had been looking for work. Their pastor said the family was so upset by a front-page photo of Han in the Post that they had to stay with him for comfort. "I just wish I had one last chance to tell my dad how much I love him," Ashley said. Naeem Davis, 30, was arraigned last night on a second-degree murder charge and ordered held without bail. He is due back in court on Dec. 11.

Yes, Ashley Han knows there will be no marches, protests, rallies, ruminating by TV talking heads, or messages of sympathy from our President for the racist hate-crime murder of her father. "What's done is done".

We've never had any problem at the Subway I frequent. I go in, get my sandwich and leave, without incident. The food is pretty good.
