Attorney's for the suspected gang members, accused of what's being called New York City's worst case of anti-gay violence in recent memory, say their clients are innocent. The ten suspects are charged with various hate crimes. What scares me is that crimes like this seem to always get pleaded down to a "parking ticket" and the guys like this get off with a $50 fine and a slap on the hand. The rage of the people is rising, now it's time for our judicial system to follow up and take these crimes seriously. Slapping your dog gets you a bigger fine and at least community service these days.
