Caucasion Crew Trial - Update: Marcelo Lucero's Blood on Conroy's Knife and Pants

NY Times reports: RIVERHEAD, N.Y. — Bloodstains on the blade of a knife that the police recovered from the Long Island teenager accused of fatally stabbing an Ecuadorean immigrant matched the DNA of the victim, a forensic scientist testified on Wednesday. Other bloodstains on the jeans and tank top the teenager was wearing also matched the victim’s DNA.
The testimony came during the trial of the teenager, Jeffrey Conroy, who is accused of killing the immigrant, Marcelo Lucero, in an attack in November 2008 in Patchogue. Prosecutors said it was part of a series of racially motivated assaults by Mr. Conroy and six other teenagers.
Mr. Conroy, 19, faces several charges in connection with Mr. Lucero’s stabbing and attempted attacks on three other Hispanic men, including second-degree murder as a hate crime and gang assault. He has pleaded not guilty.
A Suffolk County police officer who patted down Mr. Conroy that night testified previously that Mr. Conroy told him he was carrying a knife. And when the officer told him the knife had blood on it, Mr. Conroy said, according to the officer, “I stabbed him.”
The jury in the case in State Supreme Court here also heard for the first time from Dr. Stuart Dawson, who performed the autopsy on Mr. Lucero for the Suffolk County medical examiner’s office. Dr. Dawson told the jury that the cause of death was a stab wound to the chest.
The autopsy report and Dr. Dawson’s testimony showed that Mr. Lucero was not beaten or stabbed repeatedly. The only significant injuries were cuts on his upper and lower lips that probably came from a single punch, and a stab wound just below the collarbone that did not penetrate the chest cavity and ran parallel to the skin, said Dr. Dawson, a former deputy chief medical examiner who has since retired. No major organs were struck, but Mr. Lucero’s right axillary artery and an adjacent large vein were cut, according to the report and Dr. Dawson’s testimony.

Will the GOP sell the soul to the Devil in New York State ??, Steve Levy : Suffolk County Executive, Eastern Part of Long Island, Great Violence - From Safest County in USA ( Forbes Magazine ) to most dangerous


The two last Democrats Governors in New York have had troubles : Eliot Spitzer, David A. Paterson, and the state’s fiscal condition does not seem to be good.

Three candidates want to be Republican Governor : Steve Levy ( Suffolk County Executive ), millionaire Carl Paladino, and Rick Lazio. Republican infighting is not good for the GOP Party.

The problem with Steve Levy, even if he is popular, is that he is a controversial figure, the enemy of Latinos, he has promoted a bad climate and environment for Latinos in Suffolk County, that is the Eastern Part of Long Island.

This has degenerated in many attacks of coward thugs against Latinos, it has been a sport to beat, kick and stab Latinos, usually by gangs. The authorities have been complicit and complacent and Steve Levy ( Suffolk County Executive ) is well known for his imprudent and aggressive comments against Latinos.

All this degenerated in the killing of Marcelo Lucero, a hard working man, that had been in the USA for 16 years, he was stabbed at night by a coward gang of six thugs.

In 2005, Forbes Magazine named Suffolk County, along with Nassau County, New York, as the safest region in the United States, with the lowest crime rate. That was before the thugs of Long Island were animated and encouraged by Steve Levy.

I extract information from Wikipedia about Suffolk County ( Long Island ) and Steve Levy ( the county executive )


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Levy

Levy, a Democrat who describes himself as fiscally conservative, ran for the office of Suffolk County Executive in 2003.[6] He opposed Republican Edward Romaine. Levy entered office in 2004 and continues to serve as County Executive. On November 6, 2007, he was overwhelmingly re-elected to a second term with cross-endorsement and receiving 96% of the vote.

On February 25, 2010, Levy launched a campaign website for governor.[7]

Levy has drawn criticism from immigration advocates for promoting tough policies against illegal immigration; this criticism was highlighted in the wake of the November 2008 murder of Marcelo Lucero, an Ecuadorian immigrant, in Suffolk County. Levy himself, however, has disclaimed any connection between his county's policies and that attack, which he described as not "a question of any county policy or legislation," but "a question of bad people doing horrific things."[8] [9]

In March 2010, Levy stated his opposition to same-sex marriage in New York. In June 2009, a Levy spokesperson had told Newsday: "Steve's position is that he has no problem with gay marriage on the civil side, but he does not believe it should be imposed on religious institutions." The New York Post characterized this change of position as a "flip".[10]

In Hate-Crime Case, a Teenager Finds Himself Caught in 2 Worlds

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/05/nyregion/05patchogue.html

Some excerpts :

Mr. Conroy, now 19, faces several charges in connection with Mr. Lucero’s stabbing and attempted attacks on three other Hispanic men, including second-degree murder as a hate crime and gang assault. In recent days, the prosecution has been calling witnesses to testify in the trial, which is being heard by 12 jurors and 4 alternates in Justice Robert W. Doyle’s courtroom.

Prosecutors have said Mr. Conroy and six other Patchogue-Medford High School students attacked Mr. Lucero and a friend shortly before midnight on Nov. 8, 2008, part of a series of assaults singling out Hispanic men.

A Suffolk County police officer who patted down Mr. Conroy that night and found a knife on him testified that Mr. Conroy told him, “I stabbed him.”

Bloodstains on the blade of the knife matched Mr. Lucero’s DNA.

The Rev. Allan B. Ramirez, the Ecuadorean pastor of Brookville Reformed Church and an immigrant advocate helping the Lucero family, said the fact that Mr. Conroy had an Ecuadorean friend illustrated the complexities of the racial dynamics in this case, but did not change his opinion about Mr. Conroy’s guilt.

“There are a lot of racist people out there who live quote-unquote everyday, normal lives,” he said. “They’re not going to walk around saying 24 hours a day, ‘I’m a racist.’ The fact that he had an Ecuadorean friend could be seen simply as a way of hiding his hatred for Latinos. What better way to hide his racism.”

The authorities said the seven teenagers hunted for Hispanic men to attack, as part of an activity they referred to as “beaner-hopping,” a practice that incited outrage and helped thrust Mr. Lucero’s stabbing into the spotlight.

If the seven defendants went “beaner-hopping” that night, as prosecutors allege, they were not the first to do so, and they invented neither the term nor the crime. Mr. Garcia and other former students at the high school said they had heard of students boasting of going “beaner-hopping” for years before November 2008. “I’ve heard that word since fifth grade,” said Mr. Garcia, who added that he never heard Mr. Conroy use it.

Though he has occasionally spoken to others of their friendship, he has largely kept his connection to Mr. Conroy to himself and has not attended the trial, as several other of Mr. Conroy’s young friends have. “I’m just trying to stay away from everything,” Mr. Garcia said.

Mr. Garcia graduated from the high school and now works two jobs: he washes dishes at a restaurant and does maintenance at a church. He said he was trying to save money to go to Suffolk County Community College.

One recent afternoon, Mr. Garcia walked through the parking lot, to the long driveway where Mr. Lucero was found by the police that night. Wrapped around the top of the chain-link fence at the entrance of the driveway was a rosary with a small plastic cross on it.
