23-year-old fashion student Taj Patterson, a gay black male, was walking home in Ft. Greene, Brooklyn
He was mistaken for a car vandal and beaten senselessly by five hasidic jews who were a part of some neighborhood watch group. He has lost the vision in his right eye.
No one called police.
His alleged attackers Pinchas Braver, 19; Mayer Herskovic, 21; Joseph Fried, 25; Aharon Hollander, 28; and Abraham Winkler, 39 were indicted today on bevy of felony charges including gang assault.
I am hoping this brother gets justice.
