    NY - Mark Carson, 32, shot dead in hate crime, West Village, NYC, 18 May 2013

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...&cps=0&lang=en

    NEW YORK (AP) — A gunman used homophobic slurs before firing a fatal shot point-blank into a man's face on a Manhattan street alive with a weekend midnight crowd, a killing New York's police commissioner called an "anti-gay" hate crime.

    Before opening fire early Saturday, the gunman confronted the victim and his companion in Greenwich Village and asked if they "want to die here," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.

    The shooting follows a series of recent bias attacks on gay men in New York, but this was the first deadly one............

    Police said the gunman, identified later as 33-year-old Elliot Morales, told both the bartender and the manager, "if you do call the police, I'll shoot you" and opened his sweatshirt to reveal a shoulder holster with a revolver and made anti-gay remarks, Kelly said.

    Morales has a previous arrest for attempted murder in 1998, police said. Details of that arrest weren't immediately clear.

    This is just beyond incomprehensible to me. I mean, I get that you might hate gays... but enough to look them in the eye pull the trigger, become a murderer and throw your own life away?

    if you're an ex-con robber using a false ID are you really in a position to criticize anyone because of who they love?

    It took time to identify Morales because he was carrying a Pennsylvania man’s ID and was “very uncooperative with detectives,” said cops and a law-enforcement source.

    The ex-con, who served 11 years in prison on a robbery conviction, seemed so crazed, cops were investigating whether he was on drugs, a police source said.

    This is just insane. How is this nonsense still happening in 2013?

    No remorse out of Morales. Laughed on the ground while police handcuffed him.

    A Manhattan jury convicted Elliot Morales of murder as a hate crime on Wednesday in the fatal shooting of a gay man in the West Village nearly three years ago...

    That confrontation had started when a restaurant employee chastised Mr. Morales, who had been drinking heavily all day, for urinating in the street in front of the business, witnesses said.

    A few minutes later on Avenue of the Americas, Mr. Morales encountered Mr. Carson and Mr. Robinson, two gay men from Brooklyn who were out on the town on a warm Friday night... It was an explosive moment.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/15/ny...me-murder.html

    Days after a gunman killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in Florida, the judge in a hate-crime murder case in New York invoked the massacre as he sentenced a man to 40 years to life in prison on Tuesday...

    “I can’t help but perceive or observe the parallel tragedy in Orlando,” the judge, A. Kirke Bartley Jr., said as he imposed the sentence in State Supreme Court in Manhattan. “That parallel is revealed in hatred, self-loathing, fear and death.”
