'curry bashing' leader sentenced to fifteen years

Hate crime news out of Australia... In Melbourne, 21-year-old John Caratozzolo has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the racially-motivated gang murder of an Asian researcher at Victoria University: Man jailed over racist killing of university researcher.

Caratozzolo apparently told his group of friends he wanted to get a mobile phone from an Indian student "because they had better phones." They then brutally attacked Dr. Zhongjun Cao, who they took to be of Indian descent. (He's actually Chinese.)

The guy was just walking down the street, on his way home, minding his own business. Next thing he knows, he's on the ground, getting his head kicked in by a bunch of racist punks. Over a goddamn cell phone? Now he's dead an Caratozzol gets 15 years?
