Brooklyn’s Hate-Crime Numbers

In 2009, Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes joined Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Kelly at One Police Plaza to announce an arrest in the bias attack and death of Ecuadorian Immigrant Jose SucuzhaƱay, who was beaten to death on a Bushwick Street in 2008. Witnesses said the attackers screamed anti-gay and anti-immigrant slurs. Both attackers were convicted in the killing, but only one was found guilty on a hate-crimes charge.–Spencer T.
