: the story of how the community of Patchogue, NY responded to the murder of Marcelo Lucero
Patchogue's community response is especially notable because, at the time of the murder, it was considered by the Southern Poverty Law Center as having a "Climate of Fear"
concerning violence towards latinos and the, at the time, County Executive was known as "The Enabler"
because of his incendiary anti-immigrant rhetoric.
from NPR's Tell Me More.
