Sharpton Leads Pols In ‘Bias Attack’ Response
The Reverend Al Sharpton led a number of Rockaway politicians and others in a rally and march in Howard Beach in response to the beating of a young black man by a group of white residents. The teen Howard Beach man who allegedly beat the black man, Anthony Minucci, was also responsible for the stabbing and attempted murder of a Broad Channel youth two years ago. That young man eventually died under the wheels of a Rockaway A Train a year later. Minucci was given five years of probation in that case because the youth was not available to testify against him.
