Three white teens were charged Friday in what officials said was an epithet-filled fatal beating of an illegal Mexican immigrant in a small northeast Pennsylvania coal town. Brandon J. Piekarsky, 16, and Colin J. Walsh, 17, were charged as adults with homicide and ethnic intimidation in the July 12 attack on Luis Ramirez.
Quote:
The youths goaded Ramirez and the girl, saying, "You should get out of this neighborhood" and "Get your Mexican boyfriend out of here," documents said. After Ramirez and the girl began walking away, someone yelled an ethnic slur at him, court documents said. He responded, "What's your problem?"

Looks like the guy didn't provoke the attack as some posters suggested in the other thread.

Ramirez, who entered the U.S. illegally about six years ago, worked in a factory and picked strawberries and cherries.

Didn't notice but it is really sad what happened. I won't be surprised if the kids got their hateful views from their "anti-illegal" parents.

When the Federation for American Immigration Reform and NumbersUSA are classified as 'hate' groups, it's no wonder they seem to be on the increase.
