“Neo-Nazis kill a young punk with swords and knives in the Plaza de Maipú [Santiago, Chile]”
October 23, 2014
Members of the gang known as “Legion 38” ambushed a group of punks, beating them, leaving one dead and two wounded.
Security cameras at the intersection of Pajaritos and the 5th of April recorded the moments after the beating that killed Araya Isaac Herrera, 37, nicknamed “The Krusty”.
The man, from the punk subculture, was sharing beers with his friends in the Plaza de Maipú, when eight people approached from two vehicles attacking him with swords, stabbing him in the neck and abdomen. The man later died at the “El Carmen” Hospital.
The witnesses say it was a “raid” by a neo-Nazi gang known as “Legion 38”, who have photos on social networking sites with national socialist and anti-anarchist slogans.
Friends of the dead man are waiting for the PDI [Investigative Police Force] to give information about the whereabouts of the assailants, otherwise they say there will be reprisals for what occurred.
