This is an interesting story. We see see a man get some cultural enrichment from the NY locals. He got “mugged” for $1 in Yankee greenbacks. Moreover he got beat and stomped to the point he died. So what makes one NY murder more interesting than all the other ones?
NEW YORK — A 60-year-old man who was kicked and punched while defending his partner during a $1 mugging on Christmas Eve has died.
Juan Fresnada died Friday afternoon at the Bronx hospital where he was taken in critical condition after the mugging early Tuesday, the New York Police Department said Saturday. Officers have released surveillance photos and videos in hopes of pinpointing suspects.
His partner, Byron Caceres, told the Daily News of New York that Fresnada suffered the fatal blows while trying to spare him and urging him to run to safety, which he did.
He “tried to defend me,” Caceres, 29, told the newspaper Wednesday. He said he had been unable to summon help because he doesn’t have a cellphone. No contact information for him could immediately be found Saturday.
Hhhhhmmmmm. Two black dudes beat a gay man to death ostensibly over a buck…
You buy that? Cause I don’t .
Yeah, some urban yutes have killed for some one accidentally stepping on their Nike shoes, over a pack of smokes, Iphones and all manner of things. But a dollar? This smacks of a genuine “hate crime” to me. But what does the Church of Intersectionality & Victim Class do when one protected class victimizes a victim class?
Well ,you just call it a mugging and pretend it has nothing at all to do with one minority hating another minority. You don’t even mention it and hope no one notices it especially when it is in a liberal utopia.
Police said the two men were walking in the Morrisania neighborhood of the Bronx around 1:30 a.m. when several muggers approached them and demanded their property. When they refused, they were attacked.
Surveillance video clips released by police show a man grabbing another man’s shirt and swinging him to the ground, then hitting him. Later clips show two other men joining the attacker, one of them grasping a trash can, as the beaten man starts to stand up.
The muggers took $1 from the men and fled, police said.
But, you juuuuuust can’t miss the opportunity to push some other pet media narratives. Saying a man died isn’t enough. Everyone has to always know he was gay. And poor. Also an immigrant. And a minority. These things make it truly tragic you see. Just don’t say anything about the race of the attackers if you can help it. And you sure don’t suggest it was a targeted hate crime if the killers aren’t white. After all, only people in the mid west kill gay men out of hate.
Caceres, originally from Honduras, and the Cuban-born Fresnada met through a program for poor gay men in 2015 and lived together in a building in Morrisania, according to the Daily News.
“He’s very calm, and I’m the one who is stressed all the time,” Caceres said Wednesday as Fresnada lay in intensive care.
Caceres says the muggers didn’t say anything to indicate the attack was a hate crime.
A neighbor, Aletha Jacobs, told the Daily News that Fresnada was well known and liked in the area.
“He never bothered nobody,” she said. “He’s a beautiful guy.”
RIP Fresnada. You made a heroic effort. It’s a shame you or your partner couldn’t have carried a gun in NY to protect yourself. You would likely still be alive to vote in politicians that would restrict your right to defend yourself.
