HRC Releases Statement on New York City Hate Crimes

Today, Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, issued the following statement on the news that a group of nine men reportedly beat, sodomized, and robbed two men and attacked a third for being gay: “It is tragic to see what hate can do. These three men were brutally attacked and sodomized simply for who they are. Authorities must vigorously prosecute the perpetrators of these hateful crimes. Unfortunately, these crimes come on the heels of several other recently reported hate crimes in New York City. These crimes only emphasize the need for strong federal and state hate crimes laws.”
