Another Senseless Hate-Crime Murder

Timothy Kincaid

June 15th, 2007

On May 12th, 20-year old Roberto “Poncho” Duncanson was walking down the street in Brooklyn when he passed 17-year old Omar Willick.  Perhaps Roberto smiled… we don’t know.

What we do know is that Willick began a stream of slurs against Poncho and that Poncho walked away.  Willick followed Duncanson, waited outside while Duncanson visited his cousin, followed him some more, confronted him, and ultimately stabbed him four times.  Yesterday the authorities added hate crimes to the murder charges against Willick.

For some truly heart-wrenching comments by people who knew and loved Pancho Duncanson, check out this site.

Dag!! Where’s my “Pride” without u? As ppl as me 2 go out n do certain things it all reminds me of u and OUR good times. I know that no one in the flesh could’ve broken us apart so 4 whatever reason God let this happen. . . this is still a horrible dream 2 me, I have those moments when I just break down n wish I’d even sell my soul 2 the devil just 4 a way 2 change this, 2 have u here. . . I will never understand his purpose but u r up there with him now so I know u know BUT I LOVE U N THE WHOLE IN MY HEART can NEVER b filled. U R MY EVERYTHING n living this life without u is the worst test God could’ve rested on my shoulders.
I LOVE U!
