Gabriel Maturin, 20, Isaia Medina, 19, and David Trinidad, 17, have been charged in connection with the beating, and police say three other men also were present during the violence; but, did not necessarily participate.
According to a family spokesperson: "We’re not out of the woods yet. The doctors say he will be getting worse before he gets better."
This is 2005, and homosexuals are still being attacked and nothing is being done on a cultural level to put an end to it. The culture of homophobia is rampant.
Oddly, the 17-year-old Trinidad is currently on probation for raping a 4 1/2-year-old boy, according to Asst. Dist. Atty. Heidi Pircher. Pircher said she plans to seek adult sanctions against Trinidad. So this baby-raping turd is on the street after abusing a toddler and he has turned his violent ways to trying to kill adults.
Sadly, he will probably be given another lenient sentence and be allowed to continue his crime spree without hinderence, as long as he focuses on children, homosexuals, and any other marginalized group. You can be sure that once he perpertrates a crime against a white heterosexual jesus-freak he will be given the death-penalty and all the wrong-wingers will scream that a violent man like this should have been incarcerated and it's the liberals that let guys like this run free.
This is the way the wrong-wing always operates: they set the table for disaster then blame liberals for the ensuing crises. Whether it is health care or violence or social security, the wrong-wing makes a series of blunders then blames liberals. It's been happening since the Reagan years and because idiots lost in the heartland unable to wipe the jeezus from their eyes are unwilling to see the truth, the wrong-wingers continue to get away with it!
