A violent brawl involving four white kids, one Mexican man, alcohol and ethnic slurs ended in the death of 25-year-old Luis Ramirez and murder and assault chargers for the four whites. Violent crimes with racial overtones can often involve "hate crime" charges, which can bring heavier sentences for the accused if convicted.In this particular instance, a fight broke out amongst the men, most of whom were drunk, wherein the four white individuals used a number of slurs which incited Mr. Ramirez. Ramirez was beaten so severely that he died in the hospital two days after he was found. Two of the young white men were charged with murder, and all will face serious jail time even though two are under the age of 18.California Penal Code Section 422.6.(a) states Tagged as: jury trial defense
