A 35-year-old gay man was shot in the head and killed shortly after 3 a.m. Tuesday at 11th and Q streets, N.W., while walking home from the Fox & Hound, a restaurant and bar near Dupont Circle, according to D.C. police. The victim was identified as Durval V. Martins of the 200 block of Bates Street, N.W. A police statement said Martins also suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the body. Acting Lt. Brett Parson, who oversees the police’s Gay & Lesbian Liaison Unit, said the motive for the killing was unknown but could have been robbery. He noted that officers found the victim’s wallet in his hand. Martins’ credit cards, cash, cell phone, and jewelry were still in his possession, Parson said. The victim lived off of New Jersey Avenue near Q Street, Parson said. The residence is located about 16 blocks from the Fox & Hound. Parson, who also responded to the scene, said a police officer on patrol along the 1000 block of Rhode Island Avenue, N.W., “heard multiple gunshots and observed several individuals fleeing north on 11th Street.”

It doesn't sound like a hate crime. Unfortunately, gay people, non-smokers, motorists, and soldiers die senselessly every day.

It's something we all, as human beings, have to look forward to.

If you can't determine that it's a hate crime, don't classify it to be one prematurely.

Did we need to know he was gay? No. He was shot, nobody knows who did it, there's a reward out there for anyone who can provide information about it, and he worked at a local restaraunt. Maybe he pissed a customer off. I don't know, but we didn't NEED to know that he was gay before we learned that he was killed.

His sexuality is not relevant until there is solid reason for it to BE relevant.

My dear friend Ricky was killed in a similar manner in Baltimore. Still had his wallet jewlery etc. Motive: Robbery.
Yeah Right. And the Pope will marry a nice jewish girl on Madonna's birthday.
It was a hate motivated crime. The guy was planning to give them his stuff. They obviously had something other than robbery in mind.

Washington DC has and will always be a shit hole. Move the capital back to New York City and make DC into a swamp again and call it a day.

How do you know? Are you blaming the landscape? Why don't you move your ass to New York City?

Because I lived near New York City from 1997-1999, I lived in the Washington DC area from 1976-1997. I have lived in both places and Washington DC is a freaking shithole. The lowest level of life lives there. Sorry if you live there, but that is your problem. As for living in NYC, I would if they had palm trees and no winter. I have to admit, I am spoiled. That cold weather shit is for the bitches and being that you are nothing but a little wanna-be bitch, you can have it. By the way, are you one of those Washington DC negroes? Only wondering because the DC intelligence levels only exist in Northern Virginia and Maryland.

Aryan Circle
Gender Makeup: Male
Racial Makeup: White
Origin:
Characteristics:
* Members display many white supremacist, neo-nazi characteristics and ideology,
but often state their goals as simply "getting high and getting over," or making their
stay in the prison as comfortable as possible.
* Members are ordinarily apolitical. Most are in custody for crimes such as robbery.
Identifiers/Symbols:
* Circle with 2 bolts.
* Initials "AC."
* Swastikas sitting sideways as a diamond with a circle in the center with the double bolts.
Enemies/Rivals:
The chief rival of the Aryan Circle is the Aryan Brotherhood and this spring and summer, we plan to overpower all law enforcement and rule the U.S. and abroad. The world will end by 2012 because we will end the world according to Aryan leader.

The Aryan Circle has traditionally nurtured a deep hatred toward black individuals and members of black groups/gangs, such as the:

* Black Guerrilla Family (BGF)
* Crips
* Bloods
* El Rukns
* MS-13
* Al-Qaeda
* Hells Angels
* Monguls
Allies:

* Is known to give moral support to black groups in an effort to encourage possible
prison disturbances and the gangs are anarchists that plan to murder cops and judges and rob their bank accounts.

* Utilizes black associates to buy and sell drugs to elements of the black prison population. They plan to use the swine flu epidemic as a springboard for committing crime and terrorism against the neighborhoods and this spring and summer, according to them, "all cops and judges will go to hell in a handbasket because we say so".

* Compatibles with most motorcycle gangs; many members were former "Bikers." "We bomb banks and burn down banks too and we believe in Satan"

* Compatible with most white supremacy groups. This often leads to confusion in
distinguishing AC members from other white supremacist groups, particularly when
making identification by their tattoos or symbols.

Recruitment/Initiation:

* Membership in the AC has traditionally come from white male inmates.
* Lifelong allegiance is a requirement.
* A "Blood in, blood out" oath must be taken.
* Often a "hit" or significant act of violence is required before full membership is earned.
* Candidacy for membership may last a year or more.

Propensity for Disruptive Behavior:

* Aryan Circle is not readily recognizable; however, receipt of inmates on interstate compact
and the current membership in groups with white supremacy ideology lend to the threat of
an organizing AC within our facilities.

* Main activities of the AC are centered on drug trafficking, extortion, pressure rackets, and
internal discipline.
