Racist Blacks beat an Ecuadorean to death

4y ago


Keith Phoenix and co-defendant Hakim Scott, 25, are accused of shouting Hispanic and gay slurs as Jose Sucuzhanay and his brother walked arm-in-arm to keep warm on Dec. 7 in Brooklyn. Police said Scott hit Sucuzhanay with a beer bottle, and Phoenix savagely beat him with an aluminum baseball bat. Phoenix was found hiding Friday in a suburban New York apartment. Police had released a video showing him grinning as he paid a bridge toll shortly after Sucuzhanay, a 31-year-old real estate broker, was brutally attacked. The attack on Sucuzhanay came about a month after another Ecuadorean immigrant, Marcelo Lucero, was stabbed to death in Patchogue, on Long Island. Prosecutors said seven teenagers charged in that assault had set out to find a Hispanic person to attack. Lucero's mother and brother, Rosario and Joselo, attended the rally Thursday in support of Sucuzhanay's family. "We don't deserve treatment like that," Joselo Lucero said. "They have to stop the hate."
