Help the Puzzles Hate Crime Victims

On Wednesday, February 2, 2006, Jacob D. Robida, 18, entered Puzzles Lounge in New Bedford, MA with a hatchet, a gun and a question. His question was, "Is this a gay bar?"

The positive answer that he was given prompted Robida to put three innocent men in the hospital as Massachusetts was rocked with one of the biggest hate crimes in recent times:

Alex Taylor, 29, of Fairhaven was hit in the face multiple times with the hatchet as well as shot in the face by Robida.

Luis Rosado, 22, of New Bedford was shot in the stomach by Robida and remains hospitalized in serious condition with a shattered liver.

Robert Perry, 52, of Dartmouth received lacerations to the face from the hatchet as well as a bullet wound to his back which just missed his spinal column.

In response to the anticipated needs of these three individuals, has established the New Bedford Hate Crime Victims Fund and we are asking for your support. Your donation will help these victims with whatever they may need, be it medical bills, rehabilitation or everyday living expenses that cannot be met while they are hospitalized.

We ask you not to forget the victims of the Puzzles Lounge Hate Crime. Please give and give generously. The eyes of the world will look upon how we come to the aid of those in need.
