Escuche/Vea/Lea (en inglés)

Luis Ramírez, un inmigrante mexicano de veinticinco años, fue golpeado hasta la muerte la semana pasada por un grupo de adolescentes en Shenandoah, Pennsylvania. Volvía caminando a su casa la noche del lunes, cuando seis estudiantes de secundaria blancos lo golpearon brutalmente mientras le gritaban insultos racistas. A pesar del testimonio prestado por los testigos, no se han presentado cargos. Hablamos con Arielle Garcia, una amiga de Ramírez, que presenció el ataque.
