Almost two weeks ago, three Seattle teens attacked 58-year-old Filipino-American hairdresser Danny Vega just four blocks away from his home and salon. They beat him unconscious, took his cell phone and keys, and left him hospitalized with severe injuries to his kidneys, liver and brain. Later, he fell into a coma and got put on life-support. Yesterday he died.
His family thinks he was targeted for being gay but police say they lack evidence for a hate crime. What’s worse, the police don’t seem to have arrested anyone in connection with the attack.
