Does HK Stand For Hate’s Kitchen?

by

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?
