Police: Gays targeted in kidnappings, hate crimes

Seven people have been arrested and two more are sought in a series of  brutal, anti-gay hate crimes in the Bronx, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said Friday.

Three victims were kidnapped, held against their will and tortured. A fourth was beaten and robbed.

The string of attacks, which began over the weekend, allegedly was sparked when members of a street gang learned that an aspiring member was gay.

    Why do people think because someone is gay there not human? You canot and don't have the right to attack anyone unless they attack you. If someone is Gay it has nothing to do with you. I don't accept the Gay lifestyle'but that does not give me or no one else the right to attack an innocent person. Anyone you disapprove of stay away,no one can change anyone elses life or thoughts. Live and let live,take care of your own business. God created the world and humans detroy it. Leave people alone and concentrate on your own life. These guy's deserve to go to jail they evidentely done other crimes and have not been caught. People create thier own hell.
