Hate becomes more than history for victim of Temple U. beating.
Snippets from Philly.com
Growing up in suburban Pennsylvania, the young man had heard horror stories from his grandfather about the Holocaust.
His grandfather was imprisoned in Auschwitz concentration camp and lived to tell about it.
So when the young man, a Penn State University student, who spoke on condition of anonymity, became the victim of a hate crime recently in front of a Jewish fraternity on the Temple University campus, he was simply incredulous that such an attack could occur in 2008....
Temple police have video of the incident in front of Alpha Epsilon Pi house on North Broad Street near Norris, cops said.
The victim remembers that several males walked up to him and his friend, who is not a Temple student.
"You f---ing Jews! You f---ing [Jewish epithet]!" are the chants he remembers from that early Friday morning.
The four suspects - Michael Walsh, 20, of Florham Park, N.J.; David Scott, 20, and Steven Scott, 19, two brothers from Willow Grove, Montgomery County; and Bryan Pediero, 19, of East Brunswick, N.J. - turned themselves into Philadelphia police on Wednesday and yesterday to face the music, police said.
