Several hundred people rallied against hate in the College Point neighborhood of Queens,
N.Y., over the weekend, showing their support for Jack Price, the hate-crime
victim who was severely beaten last weekend after leaving a nearby deli.
But they were met by 20 or so protesters -- supporters of the jailed gay bashers, including the friend with the homophobic Leviticus tattoo who told reporters last week the attack wasn't a hate crime.
The protesters told the media Daniel Aleman and Daniel Rodriguez, who were caught on tape violently beating their victim, "are the victims of a media lynching."
Joe Jervis of Joe My God recounts the rally and the sizable counterprotest.
