Hate Crime Attacks Run Rampant in L.I.

It was the end of the run for Frank Carney, 16, as he was charge with menacing as a hate crime for being half of a duo of crazy homophobes yielding knives and chasing a 22 year old man through Bellmore, L.I. This arrest comes in the heels of another hate crime attack a few days ago in Long Island. Robert Bellamy, 23, was arraigned for a brutal beating and robbery of two men from Lakeview, L.I. After being questioned about his connection with the crime Bellamy retorted, "God made me hate gay people." Two other men are being sought in connection to the beating and robbery.
