I am greatly saddened and distressed to read another gay man has been murdered. This now brings the total to three in the city and two have been in Queens.
I find it sad that these men were killed because they were searching for someone to love and paid the price with their lives. We may or may not agree with a person’s sexual lifestyle but killing that person is just heinous.
I applaud Councilmember Danny Dromm for his press conference calling for awareness of these crimes against the gay community and urging those in that community to exercise caution when dating online.
This hate has to stop and those responsible must be brought to justice. In addition, our youth must be taught that we must not judge others and act out of hate or they will be judged in a court of law.
No one deserves to die because of who they want to be with.
