The Sanctuary Speaks Out Against Verdict in Luis Ramirez Case

From the Editorial Board of The Sanctuary comes not only a condemnation of a miscarriage of justice ... but a call for substantive change.

The Luis Ramirez Murder: A Logical Step in the Process of Establishing a Subhuman Class

Three things immediately shock the conscious soul upon learning about the murder of Luis Ramirez. The simple manner in which he died is the first of those.

Ramirez, a father of three, was beaten to death in the streets of Pennsylvania by as many as seven young men who were at the end of a night of drinking. The motive? Judging by the slurs heaped upon him along with the many blows to his body: apparently nothing more than being out at night while Mexican. The teens who ganged up on Ramirez came upon him walking with a young woman, reportedly his girlfriend’s sister. Obviously bringing threat, they asked him what he was doing out at that time of day. Then they set upon him. In the end it was a final hard kick to the skull which left the 25-year-old father convulsing on the concrete with fatal brain damage.

...snip ....

The murder of Luis Ramirez—like the murders of Marcelo Lucero and Wilter Sanchez and Jose Sucuhañay—are but logical steps in the process of defining a subhuman class of ALIEN and inciting anti-Latino violence, which will continue unless marked changes are made in our society. Changes in the immigration dialogue. Changes in the way pundits frame and discuss the issue. Perhaps even more importantly, changes to the fashion in which both Republicans and Democrats pitch and move legislation. The entire “Enforcement Agenda” that directly links immigration status (and thus all Latinos) to criminality, discussed coolly by seemingly rational voices on both Right and Left, is but the socially and politically acceptable umbrella which shields crimes like the murder of Luis Ramirez. The ubiquitous message resonating from coast to coast of this continent, across which peoples of Latin American descent have been migrating back and forth for thousands of years, is that we are in the crosshairs. And that we deserve to be in those hair-trigger sights.


Continuing to reinforce and advocate for the image of a permanent criminal and essentially subhuman class of people by maintaining Immigrations Customs and Enforcement (ICE) in its current form; the raids that rake psychological gashes into entire communities, the booming detention center industry, stopgap measures like 287g, virulently anti-Spanish language and anti-Mexican rhetoric blasted out over acceptable media outlets, as well as continuing to build up a heavily militarized border—this can end in nothing but more violence against and deaths of Latinos/as in the US, and on a growing scale.

Thanks for your fight for Justice in this horrible murder. Our blood boils with indignation while we see the acquittal of Coward Terrorists.


I got into trouble in for defending the "Obama is a Great President" Hypothesis, and my spankers hate and abhor two Great Ladies that I love and admire :

A bunch of Republicans is spanking me !! - Many against one - Do you want to join a good fight ?? is a wonderful site of Forums, Conversations and Discussions, People do not seem to be the meannest Racists or Lowest Scum.

I wrote a Leading Article, or Head Post in :

I explained how Obama may last for 8 years or perhaps 16 years like Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

How Obama is going to "torture" the guys at Fox News and other Idiots

Then I woke up the Dracula of Republicans. My spankers have answered with rivers of hate against :

1) Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ( I admire and Respect this Lady )

2) "The race card is the final hiding place of a liberal that can't continue a debate based on it's merits. I'm not saying racism doesn't exist, it does, but the Democrats manipulate it to further their agenda."

3) Furious Attacks against Wanda Sykes for Kidney of Mr Rush Limbaugh. ( I love and admire Wanda ).

4) "I don't have a problem with the color of Obama's skin, I have a problem with the thinness of it." -- Dennis Miller at Bill O'Reilly's comedy show.

5)"As far as you pretty much castigating the America youth as following sheep, it is what I would expect from a typical liberal."

I am a humble ant and my "Bag of Tricks" is certainly very limited. I am not the smartest follower and admirer of Mr Obama and the Democratic Party. I enjoy laughing at fools, but I consider that this fight is very uneven, many against one.

So if you want to say some painful realities to those educated by the Wisdom and Profundity, the Great Depth of Intellect of Bill O'Reilly and Dennis Miller go to the above link.

By the way. I still think that Mr Obama has gas for many years. He will be a Great President.

Racist and Hate Demonstrations in Shenandoah Pennsylvania against Latinos, these last days.

More Racism against Latinos in Shenandoah Pennsylvania. More Demonstrations of Hate with Hundreds of Racist Bastards, these last days !!

After the Coward Terrorist Murder of Luis Ramirez on Juyly 2008 by a gang of Six Coward Football Players.

While the men yelled racial epithets at Ramirez, they punched and kicked his head and body so severely that he lay foaming at the mouth with two skull fractures.

Once Ramirez was on the ground he was continually kicked until brain matter leaked from his skull.

And they were acquitted by a Racist Trial, Racist Judge, Racist Jury, Racist Prosecutor, Racist District Attorneys.



I am going to tell you what Latinos, Minorities, Asians, Native American Indians, and all those considered as "darkies" or "brownies" should do.

They should avoid being recruited for Wars, that is for Racist Genocide, Racist Extermination and Mass Murder. Do not go to collaborate in more Holocausts.

Three million Asiatics were exterminated in Vietnam like flies, with airstrikes and with Orange Agents, Defoliants and Dioxins.

The land was poisoned for generations, Vietnam is very cancerigen.

Wasn't three million deaths enough ??
Wasn't that Genocide enough ??
Wasn't Vietnam enough ??

Now Bush with Bible Quotations has declared a Terrorist "Crusade" ( Bush Words ) against other "darkies" and "brownies", primitive tribal people in pajamas.

Latinos, Minorities !!
Do not collaborate with that Coward Genocide.

Thousands of Children, Women and the Old killed in Airstrikes.

If your life is not guaranteed inside the U.S. ... Six Coward Bastards can kick you to death while you lie unconscious on the ground !

Then why are you going to kill innocent people in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan ??

Not a single person killed there knew about September 11 before it happened.

And to think that George W. Bush is a poor idiot manipulated with Bible Quotes !!

Manipulated by people that are shareholders of Contractors and the Military Industrial Complex as defined by President Eisenhower, also shareholders of Oil Companies. And that are becoming richer with these Idiotic Bastard Wars.
