Horrific:Teens sodomized and tortured gay teen with a plunger handle&tortured two others because they were gay!
This is one of the most disturbing stories I have heard all week! The crimes committed against people who are gay or different than others is outrageous. I only wonder if these same crimes were done against non-gays if the media and outrage would be as widely expressed?
People need to learn the golden rule and practice it! There is never an excuse to treat anyone this way and disrespect others this way. Makes you wonder if these teens were ever taught to respect others and if they have any self-respect?? If they are this hateful towards others than they must not like themselves much. I hope they get punished to the full extent of the law. They will pay severely for their actions in prison and will be lucky if they do not receive the same treatment in prison!
Here is more on the case:
A "wolf pack" of homophobic gang members was busted yesterday for attacks that included the sodomy and torture of two teens in The Bronx, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said yesterday in a rare press conference following a recent spate of bullying and anti-gay violence.
The terrifying assaults -- during which the thugs whipped, slashed and used a plunger and baseball bat to sodomize their gay victims in an apartment-turned-torture chamber -- was the work of the ruthless Latin King Goonies gang, police said.
"These suspects employed terrible wolf-pack odds of 9 against 1 -- odds which revealed them as predators whose crimes were as cowardly as they were despicable," said Kelly, who held the rare news briefing to denounce the attacks.
Gov. Paterson also condemned last Sunday's violence as "vile bigotry and brutality" -- as did City Council Speaker Christine Quinn.
Quinn called the attacks "even more despicable because the victims were clearly targeted in acts of hate simply because they are gay."
The two 17-year-olds and a 30-year-old man were assaulted, Kelly said. A fourth man, the 30-year-old victim's brother, was tied up and robbed.
The first attack came at 3:30 a.m. after some of the Goonies spotted one of the teens, who wanted to join the gang, with the man and dragged the boy into a dilapidated apartment in Morris Heights, officials said.
There they slashed the teen with a boxcutter and sodomized him with a plunger, cops said.
At around 8:30 p.m., the Goonies dragged the other 17-year-old into the apartment, where they robbed and beat him.
About the same time, they lured a 30-year-old man into the apartment under the guise of having a party.
They slugged and whipped the man with a chain, sodomized him with a baseball bat and poured 10 cans of liquor down his throat before dumping him outside, cops said.
Seven suspects were rounded up Wednesday and yesterday, and an eight turned himself into police today. Police are looking for a ninth suspect.
They all face charges of unlawful imprisonment, abduction, assault, robbery, and menacing that could land each 16 years in prison, cops said.
