Jury Permitted to Hear Caucasian Crew Leader's Words "I STABBED HIM!"

AP Reports:
GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — A jury will be permitted to hear testimony that a New York teenager, Jeffrey Conroy, admitted to police moments after the fatal knifing of Ecuadorean immigrant Marcelo Lucero that he was responsible, prosecutors said Tuesday. Jeffrey Conroy, 19, is the only one of seven teenagers charged with murder in the November 2008 stabbing of Marcelo Lucero near the Patchogue train station on Long Island. Two other teenagers have pleaded guilty to assault as a hate crime and other charges and have agreed to testify against their co-defendants. Conroy and four others are awaiting trial; all have pleaded not guilty. Conroy's trial is expected to start sometime in March.

The killing shone a national spotlight on the area's race relations; prosecutors contend Lucero's death was the culmination of an ongoing campaign that targeted Hispanic immigrants for violence. Since the killing, the U.S. Justice Department has said it is investigating hate crimes in Suffolk County and police response to them.

The Southern Poverty Law Center issued a report in September titled "Climate of Fear; Latino Immigrants in Suffolk County," cataloguing a litany of anti-immigrant attacks dating back a decade. State Supreme Court Justice Robert Doyle, in a Feb. 11 ruling released by prosecutors on Tuesday, said Conroy's comment to police only minutes after the attack that "I stabbed him" will be permitted at Conroy's trial. Doyle ruled that Conroy blurted out the admission while being searched for a knife and that "traditional Miranda warnings were not required."

Conroy and his six friends (the Caucasian Crew) were arrested within minutes of the midnight stabbing, only blocks away from where Lucero was killed. Defense attorney William Keahon did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment. Doyle also ruled that defendant Kevin Shea's comments to detectives following the stabbing were admissible at trial. Shea's attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.
The two defendants who have already pleaded guilty admitted participating in other attacks on Hispanics, confessing they and their accomplices frequently used racial epithets when confronting victims. In one instance, a Hispanic man was shot with a BB gun.

Lucero, 37, came to the United States when he was 21. He was walking with a friend when they were confronted by a group of teens. His friend fled, but Lucero was surrounded, prosecutors say. He tried to fight back, flailing at the assailants with his belt before being fatally stabbed.

I am an unashamed liberal and enemy of Racism, Ethnocentrism, Homophobia, Bullies, etc ... I am impenitent and unremorseful in my Liberalism, I will never be repentant of sympathizing with the underdogs of the World.

Loving the Underdogs :

That makes me an enemy of War, Brutality, Sadism, Cruelty, Terrorism, Air Strikes, Bombardments of Civilians, etc ... I will always be an enemy of Murder, Assassination, etc .... And I devote some time to study Racial or Racist Murder.

It is written in my genes and DNA, I am a pacifist and I approve some prudent and moderate expenditures in budgets to help others ( for example Education ) .... Later the Economy would thank those outlays. But I am an enemy of Communism and Excessive Demagoguery of Socialism, not of prudent Socialism like in Sweden and Norway, countries that I admire.

It is fun to be an inclusivist ( being inclusive and inclusionist ), that is the admirer and lover of all cultures, races, ethnics, peoples, nations, I thank God that he made me with this DNA and not an exclusivist and exclusionist, excluding others in apartheids and segregations.

I thank God that I had a loving Father, Mother, GrandParents, Aunts, Uncles, etc ... and that my family was extremely tight. ... No family dysfunctionality, no divorces, at least in the generation of my parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc ...

I have observed that Family Dysfunctionality has horrible consequences in Crimes, Delinquency, Racism, Hate, Paranoia and even in TV Hate Merchants.

My Inferiority Complexes and Inadequacies don't drag me to Racial Murders, Murders of Women or Children, or killings of any nature. But I would defend myself if Physically attacked and I would be extremely dangerous.

I love all sciences and it is written in my genes that I try to see the scientific perspective in all problems. So I see Racial Differences from the standpoint of Genetics, Archaeogenetics and Archaeology. I dislike Racial Myths because of their Imbecility and clear evil, wickedness, littleness, meanness and bias. Those myths are a form of Narcissistic Masturbation.

I think that we should be on guard against "Confirmation Bias" and "Bias Confirmation" ... The trend to see only the News and Editorials that satisfy our prejudices and our secret sins of Hate and Wickedness, Littleness, Meanness.

"Caucasian Crew"? Sounds kind of racist to me. Should we call the man killed part ot the "Brown Crew"? Can't you leave race out of anything? Some evil humans killed another human. End of story.

You must not be following the story.

The Caucasian Crew is the name they gave themselves, when they went out Beaner Stomping, as THEY called it.

The American Conservative Magazine : Debunking the Myths of Lou Dobbs and Tom Tancredo about Latinos being Innate Criminals, Inborn Criminality.

The author Ron Unz is publisher of The American Conservative. He thanks Razib Khan for his assistance in obtaining the crime and ethnicity data from several public websites and for running the cross correlations of the data.

The American Conservative Magazine
The Magazine for Thinking Conservatives
Talk TV sensationalists and axe-grinding ideologues have fallen for a myth of immigrant lawlessness.
By Ron Unz


Some excerpts :

According to Lou Dobbs, “a third of the prison population in this country is estimated to be illegal aliens,” and Glenn Beck regularly warns of “an illegal alien crime wave.” Congressman Tom Tancredo insists, “The face of illegal immigration on our borders is one of murder, one of drug smuggling, one of vandalism for all the communities along the border, and one of infiltration of people coming into this country for purposes to do us great harm.” Michelle Malkin adds an even more terrifying note, calling our borders “open channels not only for illegal aliens and drug smugglers, but terrorists, too.” Even as far back as 2000, the highly regarded General Social Survey found that 73 percent of Americans believed that immigration caused higher crime rates, a level of concern considerably greater than fears about job losses or social unity.

But is this correct? Or are these concerns rooted in the same excitable and ideological mindset that produced endless stories of Saddam’s notorious WMD, with activists and their media accomplices passing along rumors and personal beliefs in pursuit of a political agenda rather than bothering to determine the facts? Does America face a Hispanic crime problem or merely a Hispanic crime hoax?

Personal experiences are no substitute for detailed investigation, but they sometimes provide a useful reality check. Since the early 1990s, I’ve lived in Silicon Valley, a region in which people of white European ancestry are a relatively small minority, separately outnumbered by both Asians and Hispanics, with many of the latter quite poor and often here illegally. On any given day, more than half of the people I encounter in Palo Alto are Hispanics from immigrant backgrounds. Yet my area of the country has exceptionally low crime rates and virtually no serious ethnic conflict. This confounds the expectations of many of my East Coast friends.

Prior to moving back to my native California, I lived for five years in Jackson Heights, Queens, one of the most heavily immigrant and ethnically diverse parts of New York City. There as well, white Europeans were a small minority and immigrants from various Latin American countries were the largest ethnic group, close to an absolute majority of the local population. On a typical afternoon or evening, probably 80 percent of the people walking the streets of my neighborhood were non-white, and on dozens of occasions I returned home from Manhattan on a late-night train, the only white face in the subway car. Yet in all my years of living there, I never encountered a hostile or menacing situation, let alone suffered an actual criminal attack. Hardly what one would expect from television images, let alone the wild claims made by conservative magazines or talk radio. The “thousands of brutal assailants and terrorists” City Journal’s Heather Mac Donald finds among our immigrant population must have moved into someone else’s neighborhood.

Hispanics will constitute a quarter of the American population within a generation or two according to current demographic projections, so this is an important issue for the future of our country.
