Needed: witnesses to a gay bashing outside of Taqueria Cancun (mission district) Date: 2011-10-20, 10:39AM PDT
Did you witness a gay bashing outside of Taqueria Cancun (the one at 19th and Mission) Friday night? Eight men jumped out of a truck and attacked four, severely wounding one (continuing to stomp on his head as he was unconscious). This is a felony hate crime, and we need your support in prosecuting the perpetrators. Please step forward and contact me, because adding witnesses who are not victims help the case, and I’m sure if this happened to you, you would hope people would help, rather than just stand by, watch, and be glad it’s not them getting the beating. Thank you, and please contact anyone you think might have been in the area at that time and ask them. Much appreciated!
