Does HK Stand For Hate's Kitchen?

Three men say that as they passed McCoys bar in Hells Kitchen the other night, a drunken man flicked a cigarette butt that hit one of them. When they talked back, the drunk invoked the f word and urged them to move on. They kept confronting him, which led to the guy shoving one of the gays into a parked car and hitting another one in the mouth till he bled.

But that's not the scary part. That happened when the cops came, and--according to the victims--refused to arrest the alleged perpetrator, take his contact info, write anything down, or encourage them to file a report.

Has Hell's Kitchen become an unsafe place for gays?

And who's more dangerous--the drunken bigots or the police?
