Hate crime in Santa Fe

Posted in Homophobia Watch on March 17, 2005 by Blog Admin

Bravo to <a href="">Governor Richardson</a> for speaking out forcefully against the <a href="">brutal gay-bashing</a> that occurred Feb 27 in Santa Fe New Mexico, and for applying New Mexico's <a href="">new hate crime law</a> for the first time to this incident.   This horrific event was not extensively reported.  I heard a report on <a href="">NPR covering the incident</a> by Angela Taylor, but nothing on other mainstream news sources.  Such hate-crimes must be loudly and publicly condemned.
