A couple things I want to comment on based on this articleDerrick M. Donchak, 20, of Shenandoah, and Brandon J. Piekarsky, 18, of Shenandoah Heights, had previously been acquitted of murder charges in state court and convicted of simple assault.
But Donchak and Piekarsky were charged in federal court with hate crimes and depriving Luis Ramirez of his civil rights. Donchak also was accused of trying to cover up the July 12, 2008, crime.
"Four people attacked one person because of his race and because they didn't want people like him living in their town," prosecutor Myesha K. Braden said during her closing argument.
Witnesses testified that racist language was used before and during the attack and that Ramirez was kicked in the head repeatedly after falling down. The defendants, they said, didn't want immigrants in their neighborhood and repeatedly ordered Ramirez to leave.
1. The ****stains deserve the death penalty, a death for a death
2. Yea he was probably illegal but that doesnt translate into having the legal right to murder him unless it was in self defense. The article doesnt say
3. Hate Crimes are bull**** and only add fuel to the fire, charge the ****ers with murder than send them to the chair
4. Another reason why to support the 2nd Amendment
