Lured Into a Trap, Then Tortured for Being Gay (Latin Kings gang tortures suspected gays)
NYT ^ | 10/9/2010 | Michael Wilson & Al Baker

Posted on 10/09/2010 10:37:01 AM PDT by Qbert

He was told there was a party at a brick house on Osborne Place, a quiet block set on a steep hill in the Bronx. He showed up last Sunday night as instructed, with plenty of cans of malt liquor. What he walked into was not a party at all, but a night of torture — he was sodomized, burned and whipped.

All punishment, the police said Friday, for being gay.

There were nine attackers, ranging from 16 to 23 years old and calling themselves the Latin King Goonies, the police said. Before setting upon their 30-year-old victim, they had snatched up two teenage boys whom they beat, the police said — until the boys — one of whom was sodomized with a plunger — admitted to having had sex with the man.

The attackers forced the man to strip to his underwear and tied him to a chair, the police said. One of the teenage victims was still there, and the “Goonies” ordered him to attack the man. The teenager hit him in the face and burned him with a cigarette on his nipple and penis as the others jeered and shouted gay slurs, the police said. Then the attackers whipped the man with a chain and sodomized him with a small baseball bat.

The beatings and robberies went on for hours. They were followed by a remarkably thorough attempt to sanitize the house — including pouring bleach down drains, the police said, as little by little word of the attacks trickled to the police. A crucial clue to the attackers was provided by someone who slipped a note to a police officer outside the crime scene, at 1910 Osborne Place in Morris Heights, near Bronx Community College.

Clockwork orange was "Droogs", I think. Means "pals" in Russian.

The sodomite should feel lucky it wasn't a muslim gang that got him. Death by a thousand slashes with broken glass or something like that.

I find it more and more difficult to distinguish between violence against gays and rough gay sex. Not my thing either way.

Personally, “Latin Kings” sounds rather gay to start with.

I used to work right next door, in the early 70s, when it was the Heights campus of New York University. Then the South Bronx started spreading north, the drug dealers started moving in, NYU went through a bad financial period, and was forced to sell the Heights Campus to the state for Bronx Community College.

I presume that the NYC welfare system is still keeping all these perps on welfare, in addition to their drug money.

Latin Kings? There used to be major turf war between the Latino drug gangs and the black drug gangs when I was in the city--having moved down to Washington Square. I presume there still is.

15 illegal immigrant sex offenders arrested in Va., D.C.
Rosalind Helderman Oct. 8, 2010

Federal immigration officials announced Friday that over the past five days, they have arrested and initiated deportation proceedings against 15 illegal immigrants who had been convicted of sex crimes and were living in Virginia and the District.

They also identified 356 more foreign nationals currently incarcerated in federal, state or local correctional facilities who will also be deported at the conclusion of their criminal sentences, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton announced at a Richmond news conference.

He was joined by Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) and Attorney Gen. Ken Cuccinelli (R), who praised the operation as an example of effective state and federal coordination on illegal immigration.

Officials said federal regulations barred them from releasing the names of those arrested. However, they said they came from seven countries. Thirteen had been living in Virginia and two in the District.

They included a 40-year Salvadoran who had been convicted of two counts of sexual battery of a minor and was arrested in Henrico. Also arrested was a 31-year-old Salvadoran arrested in Reston who had failed to register as a sex offender, as required by law. The man had been convicted of having carnal knowledge of a child who was between 13 and 15 years old.

“Sex offenders are simply a scourge, and they deserve our full law enforcement attention,” Morton said.

No one who gets murdered is "lucky." And before you decide it's good to call him a "sodomite," please keep in mind that he was created by God, and God doesn't make mistakes.

Welcome to the gay life style. They are violent to each other. They have to be careful who they hit on because these attacks are not unusual. From the article, his own brother/roomate did not come to his aid (the 30yr old.) In fact, the victim was dishonest at the emergency room.
While in New York, I spoke with the mother of her 14yr old son who disapeared forever. She was sure he was earning pocket money providing gay sex.
It’s an ugly, dangerous, filthy business. This article is an accurate window on their world.
I know. My son is a homosexual.

This is a horrible, violent crime, regardless of the victim's sexual orientation.

But for liberals who do favor hate crime laws, but who also think there are too many black people in jail, they must be feeling a lot of conflict over what to do about this.

I have to say in reading some of the posts on this thread. I am against gay marriage and against gay rights, but anyone who thinks some kid getting tricked into coming into a house and then burned, sodomized and beaten because he is gay, is a disturbing individual. I don’t care if the kid paraded down the street with a gay pride shirt on, there is absolutely no excuse for what happened to him. These gang members need to be locked up for a long time.

Was the victim intellectually challenged or something? Or, had he simply imbibed an excessive amount of the (high-alcohol-content, nasty-tasting) malt-liquor he brought with him? I think that this story has been given an inordinate amount of attention. I mean, if these people hadn’t abused this guy, would they, nonetheless, be regarded as pillars of the community? The victim, of his own accord, went on to their turf! What’d he expect? Unless I’m in a strange city and get lost, I don’t go into known gang turf! I’d wager that incidents like this happen everyday, somewhere in the U.S. and simply don’t get this kind of schrift!

you’re right, God doesn’t make mistakes....He created a man. However, He gave that man free will and that man chose to become a sodomite.......God had nothing to do with it!!

It's obvious that the feds are going to have to cut off funding until this youth group is more diverse. The tagging would be more artistic, and gang income would increase if they promoted sub-teen gay sex with all the cruising chickenhawks. Reference the success the Boy Scouts have had with federally mandated SODOMITE Leaders... After all, it's a victimless crime.

Oh, wait...

Arrest of third suspect in which illegal aliens repeatedly raped 6-year-old (w/video of arrest)

Police in Williamsburg, Va., have arrested a juvenile, whose name is being withheld due to his age for repeatedly raping a 6-year-old girl. His arrest comes after two others, Tito Guirao-Aguilar, 39, and Samuel Eli Jacobo-Guirao, 20, were apprehended for victimizing the girl.

Guirao-Aguilar has been charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery of a person under the age of 13, and Jacobo-Guirao is charged with one count of rape of a person under the age of 13 and two counts of aggravated sexual battery of a person under 13.

Both men are being held in the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail without bond. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has also placed a hold on them.

The most popular tourist destination in the state, Williamsburg has a growing crime problem attributable to its illegal alien population, who are largely employed by the hotel and restaurant industry.

On June 10, Williamsburg police arrested illegal alien Raul Vasquez-Garcia, 33, in front of the same apartment complex where he allegedly shot a man, a week earlier.

On the night of June 4, police arrived at the Village of Woodshire apartments on Merrimac Trail, they found a man suffering from two gunshot wounds. According to police, the man and Vasquez-Garcia had been arguing over a woman.

The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he recovered from his wounds and has since been released.

Vasquez-Garcia is charged with attempted murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and assault.

I'd like to think most of them are trolls who come here and post this crap just to make conservatives look like frothing-at-the-mouth Jesus freaks (because we all know swing voters positively identify with all their hate-filled "fire and brimstone" sputterings).

Fortunately, the people who think this way will never, ever enjoy any measure of power in this country.

There are ample references in the Bible to this being a fallen world; wherein evil things happen. Some you can guard against, some you cannot. Don’t fool yourself, evil abounds. Bad things happen to good people but, if you flirt with evil, evil will, “surely,” befall you!

RED BUD, IL (KMOX)-An illegal alien is being held in the Randolph County jail, charged with sexually assaulting a jogger in the town of Red Bud.

Detective John Brittingham tells KMOX the attack happened at about 1 am Wednesday, as the woman was running on Locust Street.

He says Mateo Gomez-Rosete started running alongside the woman and began talking to her. He says Gomez-Rosete began touching her. He eventually pushed her into a bean field and assaulted her.

Brittingham says after his arrest, Gomez-Rosete admitted he’s here illegally, “He was in possession of a permanent resident card that he stated during an interview that he had received from a friend of his, that he was not here legally.”

Gomez-Rosete was an employee of Tequila’s Mexican Restaurant in Red Bud. The restaurant’s manager tells “The Independent” he had worked there for about a month, but had been fired a few days before the attack. Brittingham says as far as he knows, Gomez-Rosete was still employed there.

Gomez-Rosete is charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault. He’s being held without bond.
