It appears to have all the elements of a hate crime and now a hate crime homicide. Police reported that what began as a birthday party at the abandoned building in Queens turned ugly when a group of five men, not wanting to pay the seven dollars cover, began pushing their way inside. They started making homophobic remarks. Windows were broken and even neighbors could see how rowdy things were becoming. Back outside, according to a criminal complaint, one of the five said "get the f***k out of the front, this is my hood" and then began chasing 18-year old Anthony Collao and another man down 90th Street.

It is sickening and pathetic that this kind of crime still happens. Any kind of murder is horrible, but the ones that are committed under hatred is especially horrific. We are entitled to believe in anything, to be so harshly judge is insane.
