Hate crime committed in Greenwich Village …
The NY Post is reporting that a suspected hate crime was committed in NYC, as a gay man was shot dead after the gun man shouted a homophobic slur. The actual headline was, ‘Gay man shot dead in Village after gunman shouted homophobic slurs: authorities’. The New York Times reported, ‘In Shadow of the Stonewall Inn, a Gay Man Is Killed’. CBS News, ‘Police: Gunman Used Anti-Gay Slurs Before Killing Man In Greenwich Village’. Hmm, there seems to be something missing from the descriptive nature of the headlines. The gunman was Hispanic, not white. Personally, I believe murder is murder and I do not believe one is worse than the other (unless it is the murder of a child), but if you are going to charge it as a “hate crime,” than it should be paramount to get the description of the suspect correct. 32 year old Marc Carson was walking with a friend in the Village when after having a gay slur shouted at them around midnight, they were approached by 33 year old Elliot Morales pulled out a 38-caliber revolver and shot Carson dead. Yet another senseless killing. Now unless the media want to report Morales as being a “white” Hispanic like they did when George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, then lets call the suspect for what he was.
A gay man was gunned down in Greenwich Village early yesterday morning by an armed bigot who hurled homophobic slurs at him — and claimed to be the Newtown, Conn. killer before the murder, police said today.
Marc Carson, 32, was walking with a pal on Sixth Avenue near West Eighth Street about midnight when they were approached by Elliot Morales, 33 and two other Hispanic males, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
One man snarled homophobic slurs at the men and asked them if they were “gay wrestlers,” Kelly said.
Another thing that needs to be asked in this senseless shooting and murder of an innocent individual. How are those gun laws working in NYC Mayor Bloomberg? Like all laws, especially gun laws, they only affect law-abiding citizens.
Chinese Carjack Victim of Boston Bomber Bothers Escaped During Red Bull Stop …They Didn’t Kill Him Because He ‘Wasn’t American’
How come the LEFT is not clamoring to try Boston Marathon bombing suspect #2, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, for a hate crime as he only targeted individuals who looked America?
The UK Daily Mail is reporting that the Chinese man who was carjacked in his Mercades SUV by Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev only was able to escape after the two terrorist brothers stopped at a gas station convenience store for Red Bull and candy bars. Not quite the advertising the Red Bull wanted I’m sure. The carjacking victim jumped out of the car and ran to safety to a nearby gas station. He told authorities that being Chinese almost certainly saved his life, saying that the brothers told him they would not kill him because he was ‘not American.’ I guess the man can also thank his lucky stars that he was not carjacked in Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s NYC where the two brothers would have been SOL on getting an over-sized soda. And I am sure it’s only a matter of time before Bloomberg bans Red Bull as well.
A man taken hostage by the alleged Boston bombers after he was car jacked was able to escape after they stopped to buy cans of Red Bull at a gas station, MailOnline can reveal.
The carjacking victim, whose name has not been revealed, has told authorities that being Chinese almost certainly saved his life, saying that the brothers told him they would not kill him because he was ‘not American.’
The victim was able to jump out of the car and flee while Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, looked to buy cans of the energy drink and chocolate bars.
From interviews with the staff at both gas stations and court records, MailOnline has been able to piece together the frantic events of the early hours of last Friday.

31 Year Old Female Suspect Who Pushed Man to his Death in NYC Subway in Custody (Update: Erika Menendez Charged with Hate Crime, “I’ve hated Hindus and Muslims since 2001 …”)
The woman who earlier this week pushed 46 year old Sunando Sen to his death in a New York City subway has been arrested and is in police custody. The 31 year old suspect’s name with be held until she is formally charged. The suspect shoved Sen in front of a speeding subway train and then fled the subway station following the attack. According to police she has made a statement that implicated herself in the subway incident.
A woman is in custody in the death of a man who was shoved in front of a speeding subway train, and she “made statements implicating herself,” New York City police said Saturday.
Detectives questioned her but aren’t releasing the 31-year-old suspect’s name until she is formally charged, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said in a brief statement. Among other things, investigators were arranging for witnesses to positively identify the woman in custody as the attacker, police said.
Sunando Sen, a 46-year-old Queens resident who was born in India and ran a printing shop, died Thursday night when a woman who had been muttering to herself on a train platform in Queens suddenly knocked him on the tracks as a train entered the station.
This is the second subway incident this month that has seen an individual push another onto the tracks to their death in NYC. So when will Mayor Bloomberg, Sen. Schumer and the rest of the Democrats call for a banning of subways?
UPDATE I: 31 year old Erika Menendez has been charged with second-degree murder after confessing to killing Sunando Sen following her arrest this morning. She has also been charged with a hate crime as she stated, ”I’ve hated Hindus and Muslims since 2001 since they put down the Twin Towers. I have been beating them up since.”
A Muslim-hating woman was charged with murder as a hate crime for senselessly shoving a Queens man to his death in front of the 7 train, officials said today.
Erika Menendez, 31, was hit with a second-degree murder charge after confessing to killing Sunando Sen, 46, following her arrest this morning.
“She is accused of committing a subway commuter’s worst nightmare,” Queens DA Richard Brown said. “(He was) suddenly and senselessly pushed into the path of an oncoming train, shoved from behind with no chance to defend himself.
“She told police that she pushed a Muslim off the train tracks. She said, ‘I’ve hated Hindus and Muslims since 2001 since they put down the Twin Towers. I have been beating them up since.’”
Sikh Temple Shooter ID’s as 40 Year Old Wade Michael Page That Left 7 Dead Including the Gunman … Called Domestic Terrorism
The gunman responsible for yesterday’s Sikh Temple mass murder shooting has been identified as 40 year old Wade Michael Page. According to police, The attack is treated as “a domestic terrorist-type incident”. However, while the FBI is investigating whether this matter might be an act of domestic terrorism, no motive has been determined at this time.”
In an attack that the police said they were treating as “a domestic terrorist-type incident,” the gunman stalked through the temple around 10:30 a.m. Congregants ran for shelter and barricaded themselves in bathrooms and prayer halls, where they made desperate phone calls and sent anguished texts pleading for help as confusion and fear took hold. Witnesses described a scene of chaos and carnage.
Would this be considered terrorism or a hate crime? As reported at ABC News, the shootings are the work of a “white supremacist” or “skinhead.” So if the shooter, who was killed by police officers, was a skinhead or white supremacist, isn’t that the definition of a hate crime and not terrorism?
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms Special Agent Thomas Ahern said the suspect had tattoos and that authorities were investigating whether he was a “skin head or “white supremacist” as two ABC Sources said.
“It is being investigated. And what his tattoos signified is being investigated. They are all pieces of a possible puzzle to learn what was his motive in carrying out such a horrific act,” Ahern said.
New Black Panther Leader King Samir Shabazz Says Be Thankful We’re “Not Hanging Crackers By Nooses …Yet, Yet, Yet”
UNBELIEVABLE … More reverse racism and racial hatred, brought to you from the New Black Panther Party’s leader King Samir Shabazz.
Because nothing says racial harmony and can’t we all get along like the comments from Shabazz, “You should be thankful we’re not running around here hanging crackers by nooses and all that kind of stuff, yet, yet, yet.” Or the following special perils of wisdom, “I hate the sound of white people. G*ddamnit, I hate the smell of white people.” Yes, this brought to you by the same folks that the Barack Obama Administration and Attorney General Eric Holder allowed the NBPP to walk free on obvious voter intimidation of white voters. Then again, it was for “his people”.
From The Blaze comes the following comes more pathetic and vile hate courtesy of the New Black Panther Party:
According to National Field Marshal for the New Black Panthers King Samir Shabazz:
•“I love white-on white-crime, because that is the best crime.”
•“I hate the g*ddamn white man, woman, and child, grandma, aunt, uncle, Pappa Billy Bob, and whoever else.”
•“You should be thankful we’re not running around here hanging crackers by nooses and all that kind of stuff — yet, yet, yet”
•He has a “wet dream about killing the g*ddamn cracker.”
•“We don’t allow faggots and lesbians” in the New Black Panther Army
•Envisions a world where every black person is “ready to bang on this cracker”
•Wants to take over neighborhoods “block by block” so “crackers…or even the developer” would be scared to come into them
•“We’re taught to send this cracker to the cemetery… so kiss ‘em goodbye”
Listen to the unbelievable audio of the NBPP leader on a national radio show this weekend, calling for broad violence against whites. The FBI and the Justice Depatment investigates George Zimmerman for a possible hate crime against Trayvon Martin, yet nothing happens here. Imagine of the roles were reversed a a white individual made the same or similar comments toward blacks? When is Barack Obama and Holder going to show any form of “fairness” when it comes to hate speech?
More on the Obama/Holder double standard of racial hatred at the Gateway Pundit.
TWITTER Lynch Mob Wants to Kill George Zimmerman for Revenge for Trayvon Martin … Isn’t Making Death Threats Against the Law?
Define irony, those screaming hate crime in the death of Trayvon Martin, while they themselves are committing an actual hate crime.
TWITTER lynch mob goes after George Zimmerman and wants him dead. Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch individual who was charged with second degree murder after pressure was brought to bare in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. George Zimmerman was released from jail on $150,000 bail Sunday night. We had questioned whether he would be safer in jail than out in the public. I guess our question has been answered. Shameful, simply shameful. Calling for legal justice is one thing, making death threats is quite something different.
Oh those brave “keyboard cowards” hiding behind their TWITTER accounts make death threats against George Zimmerman. A special thanks to the MSM and the race baiters who have fanned the flames of hate and racism to create the present atmosphere. I hope you are really proud of yourself. Below are some of the TWEETS, editing was required for language.
George Zimmerman Released From Jail 150,000 Bail! WTF! Nigga You Are About To Die, Start Writing Your Will! Justices Has Not Been Served
Kill that mexican muther fker george zimmerman #WhiteTrash
@AP Kill george zimmerman
Um, isn’t making threats against TOS of TWITTER? Beyond that, it is against the law as well.
Note the Twitter Rules: Violence and Threats: You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence against others.
Now This is a Hate Crime: Alton L. Hayes III … I Beat Up White Man Because I Am Mad About Trayvon Martin Case … The MSM, Sharpton & Jackson Remain Silent
Oh the media double standard silence is deafening …
May this be a reminder to the President Barack Obama, the bias MSM, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Rep. Maxine Watters (D-CA), the New Black Panther Party and the rest of the foolish sheep that allow themselves to be manipulated by racist hate … THIS IS WHAT IS CALLED A HATE CRIME!!!
Alton L. Hayes III
Alton L. Hayes III, 18, and a 15 year old boy claimed they robbed and assaulted a victim because he was upset by the Trayvon Martin case and beat the man up because he was white. So let’s understand this … two black beat the crap out of a white guy because they were upset about Trayvon Martin? Really?
Hayes and a 15-year-old Chicago boy walked up behind the 19-year-old man victim and pinned his arms to his side, police said. Hayes, 18, then picked up a large tree branch, pointed it at the man and said, “Empty your pockets, white boy.”
The two allegedly rifled through the victim’s pockets, then threw him to the ground and punched him “numerous times” in the head and back before running away, police said. Hayes and the boy are black; the victim is white.
After being arrested, Hayes told police he was upset by the Trayvon Martin case and beat the man up because he was white, Cook County State’s Attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said, citing court records.
How ignorant could an individual be? This fool just admitted to a “hate crime” as opposed to simple assault and robbery. However,I just two questions, one, George Zimmerman is Hispanic, not white. Two, I must have missed the part where there was a robbery in the Trayvon Martin case.
Actually there is a third question. Where is Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson marching in the streets with “No Justice, No Peace” over this racial hate crime? Where is the NBBP putting out a bounty on the racists? As stated by the Left Coast Rebel, we are awaiting the response from the LEFT.
Hmm … I am betting Barack Obama will not be commenting that Alton L. Hayes III looks like his son, had he had one.
Bill Cosby says that the Trayvon Martin tragedy was not about race … Not about whether the shooter was a racist …
Actor/comedian Bill Cosby has weighed in on the death of Trayvon Martin and the murder charges against George Zimmerman. Cosby stated that the focus should not be on race, but instead on guns. Hmm, what would Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the New Black Panther Party and the liberal MSM have to say about that? Yesterday on CNN, Bill Cosby said that they Trayvon Martin tragedy is more about guns than about race. Whether one believes it is even about guns, what is most interesting is that Bill Cosby does not believe this was a hate crime and that Trayvon Martin was not profiles by Zimmerman as the prosecution claims.
Actor and comedian Bill Cosby says the debate over the killing of Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood watch volunteer should be focused on guns, not race.
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” aired Sunday, Cosby said calling George Zimmerman a racist doesn’t solve anything. Cosby says the bigger question is what Zimmerman was doing with a gun, and who taught him how to behave with it.
From the CNN interview, “State of the Union” that the Trayvon Martin tragedy is more about guns than race. Bill Cosby said the issue isn’t whether a shooter is racist or not. “If he’s scared to death and not a racist, it’s still a confrontational provoking of something,”
CNN VIDEO via the Orlando Sentinel
“I’m a person who believes that gun, the gun, all around this United States, when a person has a gun, sometimes their mind clicks that this thing is — it will win arguments and straighten people out,” Cosby tells Candy Crowley. “And then in the wrong hands, in the wrong mind, it’s death, it’s wounding people.”
“I also believe that when you tell me that you’re going to protect the neighborhood that I live in, I don’t want you to have a gun,” Cosby said. “I want you to be able to see something, report it, and get out of the way, because you happen to be a part of the neighborhood. I don’t want you to get hurt. And I don’t want you to hurt anyone.”
Sadly, those who have made racist and using the race card a cottage industry have done the same with the George Zimmerman shooting of Trayvon Martin. George Zimmerman was arrested and indicted on second degree murder charges; however, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz stated that the Zimmerman arrest affidavit was irresponsible and unethical.
Harvard Law Prof. Alan Dershowitz Says Zimmerman Arrest Affidavit in Death of Trayvon Martin is ‘Irresponsible & Unethical’
Well this is rather interesting, during an interview on MSNBC’s Hardball with fill-in host Michel Smerconish, Harvard University law professor Alan Dershowitz told MSNBC that the Zimmerman affidavit was irresponsible and unethical. So will justice really be served or is the prosecution of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin simply political?
Alan Dershowitz went on to say that the arrest affidavit was thin and that it would not suffice. Dershowitz went on to say, “There’s simply nothing in there that would justify second degree murder.” The famed Harvard law prof went on to further criticize special prosecutor Angela Corey decision to move forward on the case against Zimmerman and accused Corey of making a political reelection speech as well as overcharging Zimmerman.
Dershowitz most telling comment was that if there is no stranger evidence than what appeared in the probable cause affidavit, “the case will result in an acquittal.”
Harvard University law professor Alan Dershowitz appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball where fill-in host Michel Smerconish asked him his opinions of the arrest warrant issued and carried out for alleged Trayvon Martin murderer, George Zimmerman. Dershowitz called the affidavit justifying Zimmerman’s arrest “not only thin, it’s irresponsible.” He went on to criticize the decision to charge Zimmerman for second degree murder by special prosecutor Angela Corey as being politically motivated.
“You’ve seen the affidavit of probable cause. What do you make of it,” Smerconish asked. “It won’t suffice,” Dershowitz replied without hesitation.
“Most affidavits of probable cause are very thin. This is so thin that it won’t make it past a judge on a second degree murder charge,” Dershowitz said. “There’s simply nothing in there that would justify second degree murder.”
Dershowitz said that the elements that would constitute that crime are non-existent in the affidavit. “It’s not only thin, it’s irresponsible,” said Dershowitz.
Dershowitz went on to strongly criticize Corey’s decision to move forward with the case against Zimmerman. “I think what you have here is an elected public official who made a campaign speech last night for reelection when she gave her presentation and overcharged. This case will not – if the evidence is no stronger than what appears in the probable cause affidavit – this case will result in an acquittal.”
Andrew C. McCarthy at NRO’s ‘The Corner’ also finds the affidavit is stunningly weak and wanting.
Read the Affidavit of Probable Cause HERE.
Much more regarding the weak affidavit from Powerline. The question remains, how can such a weak affidavit and the fact that there is little evidence that Zimmerman profiled Trayvon Martin, let alone no one knows, including the prosecutor who started the fight, how does this merit second degree murder? Is this an attempt by the prosecutor to overcharge in an effort to have Zimmerman cop to a lesser charge of manslaughter? However, as stated at Powerline. “But if the prosecutor isn’t even prepared to allege, let alone prove, that it was Zimmerman, not Martin, who started the fight, one wonders what chance she has of convicting Zimmerman of anything”. Agreed.
