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.

Goonies...is that from Clockwork Orange..,.?
Disgusting and inhuman.
A good chance for a national “teachable moment” on the subject of prejudice and bigotry in the inner city, eh Barry?
No, the 1985 Spielberg kiddie adventure movie of the same name.
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.
THe gangs need to be hunted down and shot in the streets but this could have been avoided if the young man had just not been a c*ck hound.
It reminds me of what Black Panther Huey P. Newton did to Bobby Seale when they had a falling out:
15 illegal immigrant sex offenders arrested in Va., D.C.

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.
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.
perhaps, but the Latin Kings are one of the largest Hispanic street gangs in the country.
It's a question of whether or not there is consent.
All you mangz are racist, man! It’s the machismo, effe’.
