Queens Hate Crime Victim Speaks


The hate-crime victim from Queens whose beating last week was caught on tape spoke to the press for the first time following to the attack, saying that just after the beating, "I thought I died."

According to the New York Daily News, 49-year-old Jack Price has tubes running into his chest and nose, but still manages to have a bright outlook. He says he wouldn't wish this fate on anyone else.

"Better it was me," Price told the Daily News in a reportedly pained voice, the stitches along his broken jaw clearly visible. "Someone else may not have survived it."

The article continues, "The courageous College Point man spoke out more than a week after the attack. The late-night Oct. 8 beatdown left Price with a shattered jaw, broken ribs and a collapsed lung."

Daniel Rodriguez, 21, and pal Daniel Aleman, 26, the two suspects cops say were captured on surveillance video repeatedly punching, kicking, and stomping on Price, have been charged with felony assault as a hate crime.
