» What happened: The van went out of control on the Bronx River Parkway, falling 100 feet off an overpass and killing four adults — a male, age 84, and three women, ages 80, 45 and 30 — and three children — all girls, ranging in age from 7 to 12. Nobody at the zoo, animal or human, was injured by the fairly dramatic-sounding crash.
These suspects deployed terrible, wolf-pack odds of nine against one, which revealed them as predators whose crimes were as cowardly as they were despicable.NYC Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly • Regarding the recent hate crime allegedly committed by nine gang members against three gay men in three separate attacks last weekend. We won’t go into all of the details of the brutal attack, but we’ll note that it’s bad enough that the suspects allegedly went out of their way to clean up the crime scene – painting walls, removing carpet and even dumping bleach down the drains. Honestly, that speaks volumes of how bad it was. Yikes. Eight of the nine suspects have already been apprehended in a crime mayor Michael Bloomberg says “sickened” him. He hopes their speedy arrests will let others know that people who commit hate crimes in the city ”will go to jail for a very long time.” source (via)
