More Violence In The Village

This spring I wrote about the problems the West Village was having with gangs of violent gay black and latino youth, a topic which generated considerable debate among the readers. Today comes news that a "gang" of seven young lesbians from New Jersey stabbed and beat a 28 year old man for "coming on" to one of them. The New York Post covered the story with the header "Gals Gone Wild!" Just two weeks ago, the gay youth empowerment group, FIERCE!, came to an agreement with the city that will bring more police and social services to the pier beginning September 1st.
