After outrage and questions about how the Serbian Consulate apparently helped a suspect in an upstate NY beating flee the country, Senator Charles Schumer now thinks the Serbian government will cooperate, telling reporters, "The new [Serbian] government has a different outlook in terms of the United States and the West. The old government was hostile. The new government wants to be very friendly and be part of the West." In other words, having the vice consul pay the $100,000 cash bail for Miladin Kovacevic and providing an emergency passport to the suspect isn't very friendly. Kovacevic is accused of brutally beating Brooklyn resident Bryan Steinhauer at a bar in Binghamton; Steinhauer has been in a coma for over a month.
