    Three men (2 teenagers and a 30 year old) were beaten and tortured by nine young men last week 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 men were tied to a chair beaten, burned with cigarettes, jeered and laughed at and sodomized with different instruments

    It saddens me to see closeted gay guys go to such great lengths to prove their "straightness."

    The accused are young, 16 to 23, so prison might just be the perfect punishment for them- kind of an eye for eye.

    That could be what they're counting on. Because ya know, it's not really "gay" if it's done in prison...even if they enjoy it.

    These guys obviously think gay men are "perverted" - but it's what's going on inside their heads that's truly perverted.

    Sad what some guys are willing to do to feel part of the "group" and "belong" to something. Sad and sick.

    I believe that people find it easier to hate because tolerance requires effort. Haters live with haters, in a community of malevolence. The more they hate, the more they are approved by their social group. Toleration would brand the hater as the enemy - the enemy being everyone who is different. This is an endless, vicious cycle, guaranteed to generate bigoted progeny. Thus, we hate to be recognized as appropriate by our peers.


    On a separate note:
    I, personally would like the gay community to become more aggressive, pro-active in government and in our communities... to save ourselves and our people by any means necessary.

    Would there be a change in the number of such violent attacks if the gay community were to raise another organization like the Guardian Angels of NYC? Does the gay community have that kind of aggression and hunger to liberate ourselves from being targeted?

    The Guardian Angels is a non-profit, international, volunteer organization of unarmed citizen crime patrollers. The Guardian Angels organization was founded February 13, 1979 in New York City by Curtis Sliwa and has chapters in 15 countries (in 144 cities) around the world.[1]

    Sliwa originally created the organization to combat widespread violence and crime on the New York City subways. The organization originally trained members to make citizen’s arrests for violent crimes. The organization patrols the streets and neighborhoods but also provides education programs and workshops for schools and businesses.

    In the beginning, New York City Mayor Ed Koch publicly opposed the group. Many government officials also opposed the group whenever they attempted to open a chapter in their cities. Toronto Mayor David Miller and Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair publicly oppose the group.[citation needed] Over the years, however, as the novelty of the organization and controversy has died down in many cities, and as citizen involvement and outreach has increased, there has been less public opposition to the group by government officials. Former Mayor Ed Koch later reversed his stance on the organization,[2] and former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and current New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg have publicly supported the group.
