8 Of 9 NYC Gay Bashing Suspects Apprehended, None Showing Remorse

Elmer Confresi, 23, turned himself into police becoming the eighth of nine suspects apprehended in New York City’s brutal gay bashing attack against two teens and one adult that involved sodomy with a broom handle, lit cigarettes to the nipple, and a box cutter. Ruddy Vargas-Perez, 22 (pictured), remains at large. Says NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly: “The seven individuals that we have in custody initially, there’s an eighth one now, have made statements, video confessions or statements concerning their acts involving this case, but I wouldn’t characterize it as remorse.”

    Terrific, no remorse will bring heavier sentences. I look forward to it. They are not rehabilitatable. Dump them in a cell and leave them there.

    Maybe they don’t think remorse is necessary. NYPD do have form as regards sodomy with a broom handle, so maybe the suspects think that they’re amongst friends.

    I’d like to see the same broom handle used to smash every finger on each of those bastards hands.

    i hope they are shown the same sort of hospitality as they showed others.

  • Xtincta

    I wonder will this get the same airtime nationally as the Tyler Clementi story? Hmmmm I wonder……

  • Carson

    tossing these unrehabilitatable scum in a prison will cost to much and only make matters worse. Execute them.

    ‘Sesame Street’ has done a great job teaching kids at an early age that a person’s race doesn’t matter. Would it be asking too much if these educational programs also taught children that a person’s sexual orientation doesn’t matter either?


    These scumbags hate the Gays ohh so very much. Yet in order to “show the victims” just how much they hated them they felt the need to strip them naked and insert objects in their asses. Dunno, seems kinda Gay to me………….


    #7 continued……..And these scumbags are in for a pretty rude awakening. Not only will these teens be subject to the “hospitality” of the elder guests of the prison they will be sentenced to, one of them made a statement “I can do five, no problem”. Problem is that for starters the charges they face include some with a term of 25 years………

    Simple solution for male aggression: castrate them.

  • Ren

    That’s absurd. Why should Sesame Street be teaching preschoolers about sex?

  • ewe

    @Ren: You are the only one who brought up the topic of sex. Kieran’s topic was sexual orientation. Do you get that or do you need a personal tutor to explain it to you?
