Were the Newark executions anti-gay hate crimes?

Have the authorities and media covered that up?

Juan Melli at Blue Jersey has a very powerful post on the matter.

This is not a Red or a Blue issue. This is a human issue.

Many of us in Monmouth County may relate to what happens in Newark as if it happens thousands of miles away or in a different universe. I usually do, and I did when I lived a mile away from Newark in the 80's.

The truth of the matter is that Newark is about as far from Monmouth County as Rumson is from Manalapan. These tragedies happened in our back yard.
