Jewish Men Who Beat A Gay Black Man Blind Sentenced 150 Hours Community Service
Back in 2013, we reported on the vicious and bigoted beating of Taj Patterson by a group of jewish men who don’t approve of his “lifestyle”.
As a result of that beating, Taj is blind in his right eye.
Yesterday, NYDN published a report saying that a judge handed down an embarrassingly paltry sentence for an EXTREMELY violent crime…
A Brooklyn judge sentenced the two Hasidic men who admitted to participating in the vicious beating of a gay black man to 150 hours of community service on Tuesday.
Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Danny Chun had delayed Pinchas Braver and Abraham Winkler’s sentencing by seven days so they could find an appropriate placement for their community service but they still have not.
Braver’s attorney Robert LaRusso admitted outside of Brooklyn Supreme Court on Tuesday that it is “not difficult” to find the right organization.
“It’s not a problem — it’s just being able to satisfy the prosecutor that the agency that we are asking the community service to be performed is satisfactory to them,” said LaRusso.
Oh yeah, the judge also said the men also have to pay Taj $1,400. Guess that’s what his eye, pain and suffering is worth…
