Last year there was one anti-Latino bias crime in Suffolk County, according to Steve Levy, and it wasn’t the attack on Luis Pina Tigre.


In September 2007 Tigre was riding his bike to his Patchogue home at around 10PM. Five young men knocked him off his bike and started beating him. Four neighbors, Jane Kurshals, Eddie Colon, Mercy Ulloa and her husband, say they saw the young men beating Tigre.
