Benavent: Where’s the outrage?

Letter to the editor

I am writing in response to the alleged assault of the RFTA driver last week as reported in The Aspen Times on Oct. 5. I have seen no community, RFTA or government response to this incident.

This was an alleged hate crime directed at a person due to their race and sexual orientation. We should be outraged by such a disgraceful occurrence. It was reportedly bad enough as is, but this is how people end up dead.

This community and our leaders need to speak up. Supposedly, hatred and racism will not be tolerated in our community, but this lack of response is a response.
