Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Relatives and supporters gathered today outside of the 83rd Police Precinct in Bushwick, Brooklyn, holding photographs of Reyes' damaged face. Last Saturday, when Reyes, who is schizophrenic, refused to take his medicine, his mother called his social worker, who then called 911.

Two Bronx residents have been indicted in the murder of José Sucuzhanay, an Ecuadorian immigrant who was beaten to death on a cold night last December, as he walked arm-in-arm with his brother, Rommel. Witnesses reported that the defendants, Hakim Scott and Keith Phoenix, yelled racial and homophobic slurs while attacking the brothers. Phoenix and Scott are being charged with murder in the second degree as a hate crime, manslaughter, assault and attempted assault.

Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes says if the two men are convicted of all counts, his office will seek the maximum sentence--78 years to life in prison.

HYNES: “The case is a clear message that society simply cannot permit cretins to target anyone because of sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, religion or gender.”
