Update: Immigrant Beaten to Death in PA

A few voices in the blogosphere have been writing about Luis Ramirez’s death in a fatal beating this past week. I’ve been following the story, as some of you know.

Now, people are speaking out, claiming that since Luis was undocumented, he got what he deserved. To most, this logic seems glaringly inhumane and callous. However, there are people who will parrot the belief that he “got what he deserved”, that somehow, in this instance, brutal murder is justified.

For more on this, make sure to click over to American Humanity, where symsess gives us an excellent analysis of both blog and media coverage around the story. And proves why we should care – all of us.
