Julius Bartender Attacked In Anti-Gay NYC Assault

Frederick Giunta, 45, was arrested Friday and charged with assaulting two men in a row in New York City’s West Village last Tuesday. After robbing and hitting one, Giunta allegedly beat up a bartender at Julius, the storied gay bar, saying to him, “What are you going to do, you fucking nigger. You are a fucking faggot.” He’s charged with attempted robbery and misdemeanor as a hate crime. Who’s exhausted tallying up all the statistics?

    I am very surprised these lowlifes have not gotten their heads pounded in by the patrons and/or residents. Where was everyone in the bar? I hope everyone is not standing around posing while this sort of crime takes place.

    Apparently he was a former regular patron of the bar.

    For the first few months in my life, I’m actually starting to believe in the gun rights lobby. Anyone for becoming a member of the pink pistols?

    Very rarely do we read/hear someone say, “Thank God one of them pulled out a gun.” Despite the romanticizing of guns in our culture and society.
