Hate Crime Victim Takes A Stand After No One Helped Him!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayInspirationSad SadYouTube

Unbelievable, shocking, and so truly appalling in so many ways.

Incidents like these need to be STOPPED.

Please watch this video from 23 year old Justin Alensa, who recounts in explicit detail how he was assaulted and left with a fractured skull at a gas station by an anonymous gay-basher, and worse yet, was refused help by multiple bystanders (above).

Literally sickening. And what turns our stomach even more is that this sort of thing happens ALL THE TIME, but most don't speak out about it.

We have to commend Justin for his bravery, during the assault and for posting this account afterward. No one should have to feel as frightened, ashamed, and alone as he did, and it's our responsibility to ensure that these kind of disgraceful acts of bigotry and hate END. NOW.

Pass this along, talk to your peers, TAKE A STAND! Eliminate HATE.

    Shit happens!



  2. 2

    HEY BP…YOU SUCK!! Check you store video cameras….if what he is saying is true and that your employee did nothing…FIRE HIM!!



  3. 3

    How do you know it happens all the time if no one speaks about it?



  4. 4

    this makes me so angry. people are so pathetic that they have to resort to hateful violence to make them feel better about something they don't understand or that scares them. good for him that he is able to keep his head up. still, it makes me so angry that he has to go through this, emotionally and physically. may whomever did this to him get his tenfold.



  5. 5

    Poor guy. I hope they all get what they deserved.



  6. 6

    This story makes me so angry. I hope Justin knows that there are people in the world that would have intervened. Its just so sad that anyone would feel like this and no one helped him.. Just horrid…

    I agree w/ Superhot. They should go back and check the tapes.

    Re: Mr.Johnsson
    I will not say it happens all the time. But, I know that I was at a bar having a great time w/ my husband, sister in law and her girlfriend. We were minding our own business. And a group of 3 guys started haranguing them. Telling them he didn't want to see any "homo shit". Mind you HE kept coming to OUR table. This culminated in a confrontation. Luckily, the other bar patrons saw what was happening and it was stopped. Ruined our night and we left. But, I saw first hand that night the ignorance of people. Its a very sick feeling…

    So, it may not happen "all the time". But it does happen and even once it too many.

    Re: Mr.Johnsson – havent you watched the news latley………..



  9. 9

    honeslty its really sad to know that there are such ignorant people in this world that would severly hurt an innocent man like this. Its time for some people to grow up and stop spreading hate. its disgusting. and i really think the bystanders at that gas station should feel ashamed of themselves, for not standing up. its truly apalling. i just hope that justin knows that are plenty of people out there that support him and think he is doing the right thing by speaking up and spreading awarness. Such a brave guy.



  10. 10

    People who behave in this manner should be locked up and throw away the key.



  11. 11

    I feel bad for this gay, but it's hard to stop the HATE with guys like Perez spewing it daily.



  12. 12

    I just want you know that had I been there - I would have helped you as would millions of other people.
    I don't understand the people that did NOT assist you.



  13. 13

    Justin, you are mature beyond your years. I wish I could give you a big hug. Well, a Cyber-Hug will have to do!!! STOP THE HATE NOW…..SNAP!!!!!!!



  14. 14

    I agree, but Mario, you got rich off of a form of hate, only to "retract" yourself after the bank account was overflowing. You're such a douchelord. Oh, and I'm surprised you don't have a commercial leading into this video.



  15. 15

    Justin, at first I felt nothing for you, like the people in that store, partly because Perez posts HATE like this all the time and he usually does it himself with his words (biggest hypocryte I know) and him 'representing' you like this probably gets the word out, but even non haters like me, stop caring about Perez's screams for help because of his moronic delivery.
    But after hearing you speak, I do care. I would not be so cruel as to watch this happen to you and laugh, but I dont know that I would be able to help you seeing as this dude had a gun and was clearly not in a good frame of mind…. actually he was in a dangerous frame of mind. Shall I risk MY life to help you? not going to happen. ONE man hating on you really sucks, he was clearly an idiot, but dont say all bi-standers are hating on you. And maybe the best way the clerk thought to cool this guy off was to not provoke him and to show fake support for the man with a gun so that he might fizzle his anger and walk away feeling like such a big man? Fear affects people in different ways, but I would have called the police after the gunman had left, that's for sure, and I bet the clerk probably did.



  16. 16

    I'm so F…ing SICK of these stories! EVOLVE PEOPLE! This sweet, articulate man was attacked for what?!! I weep for all of you that don't see the absolute tragedy in all of this!

    Perez - if you can somehow reach out to this person and find out the exact address of the BP where this happened, I am sure the employee in question can at the very least be terminated. Furthermore, I would imagine (and certainly hope) that BP has a protocol in place where its employees are adequately trained to call for professional assistance (Police/EMS) in situations like these - why did this not happen? Did the manager not train his employee well enough? This young man has a strong lawsuit against BP, the manager and the employee.

    I wish that a call for consciousness and understanding were enough, but sadly, sometimes the only thing that effects change is a dent in people's pocket books. I'm sure BP does not want its customers thinking that it does not train its employees to call for help in situations like this. Heaven knows they have enough bad press.



  18. 18

    This video is too long, just go to the point. If it is a BP gas station convinience store I'm sure they have security cameras inside and outside the store. What did the cops find out after you called them? Although, your pride, ego, feelings etc., are hurt now and might be for a long time, if this is all true and there is proof, why not hire a lawyer and sue. People say money can't buy love and/or happiness but it sure does help a whole lot, let's be honest about it.



  19. 19

    Re: FoUfCfK – Ypu know, if the people in the store just stood by I would've excused their behaviour - they may have been afraid of the gun. However, THEY LAUGHED. Laughed while a person was gaybashed right in front of them. So don't claim they didn't hate on him too, because they did.



  20. 20

    I am so sorry for you having to deal with bull like this. I'm not sure if I would have been much help, with that guy having a gun and all. I WOULD have at least called the cops, try to catch a picture/video of the guy, and maybe yelled at the guy to stop, while taking cover at the same time. Just know, it does get better. If you think about how times have changed from 10 years ago til now, people are more tolerant (or at least act as if they are) and more hesitant to do stupid ish like this. In the next 5 years, hopefully these stories will dwindle even more. You are in my prayers and thank you for speaking out.. and THANK YOU for standing up for yourself. *SNAP* Maybe next time that guy will think twice about doing this to someone else. Be blessed and stay strong!!!!!



  21. 21

    There is a lot of info this person is neglecting to share. Did he call the cops, was an investigation conducted? EMS called/911 at all!!! Anyone who can back up his story, tapes/security cameras. I'm gay too, and feel for this dude but I'm also fair and like to see facts, proof before descending like an angry mob on BP, and the parties involved. The other 2 people there could've been afraid of the allege person with the gun.



  22. 22

    I just don't understand the gay haters…. what's all the fear about? Its not happening in your bedroom, so why beat up someone who you think is gay?

    [/re]

    How do you know they laughed? Because Justin says they did? If they were laughing, I am sure it was a smile or a smirk to laugh at how stupid this gunman was acting. Avery story is embelished, escpecially the gay-hate crimes… Just sayin!



  24. 24

    Re: TEARSinHEAVEN

    The bystanders stood by LAUGHING.
    The clerk did not pretend to show 'fake support' for the criminal - he NEVER called he police afterward after a crime occurred at his store because he did not want to deal with the aftermath. I think this situation speaks for itself.



  25. 25

    Re: **Bones** I just don't understand the gay haters…. what's all the fear about? Its not happening in your bedroom, so why beat up someone who you think is gay?

    Because insecurity runs deep and when they see a gay person, they think 'This person is weak, he cant fight back' a bully's fantasy. He's probably cruel to animals too.

    I'm 100% pro-gay. But PLEASE stop posting these things…

    You can't just focus on one thing and forget about other things like racism for example… Or violence against straight people and/or women. Or…??

    Who cares what the reason is?! The bad part is that innocent people get hurt, no matter what their sexual orientation, skin colour, religion etc is!!

    I thought this was a celebrity gossip website????



  28. 28

    im gay too, and while i feel bad for this guy, where is the rest of the story? police report? witnesses? the other side to the story? this guy speaks well but when he gets excited a nasty attitude and foul mouth come out..im not saying he shouldnt have 1 but as gay men we should know when to get attitudy with str8 men who pose as a threat..sometimes SILENCE is the best med, because any catty remark could set ANY1 off, not just gay/str8 issues..gay bashing would have been the other guy just beating on him for know reason, other than being gay..this sounds like an insecure man and someone who might have stood up and then lead to this…is it "gay bashing"?? idk,,,but sometimes ignoring ppl and situations is the best, i too wish Perez would stop posting these, this is a CELEB SITE



  29. 29

    Re: Dusss – Seriously. >.>



  30. 30

    Re: Htownspitfire – I so agree with you, I too am gay and stated this before about his lack of facts, proof etc. Just because he is gay, does not make him a saint, we can be as mean and bad as just ANY human being of any race or sexual orientation. He has 'left out' LOTS of info regarding his allege 'attack' due to gay bashing. He should be talking to a lawyer and keeping his mouth shut instead of posting you tube videos that would only hurt his chances if he ever decides to sue for damages, once is out on the web, is out there. . .



  31. 31

    Perez has posted items that have made me smile and cry, but much more, articles that make the public aware. Thanks Perez!



  32. 32

    You need to ca;; the police make a report and charge the man that hit you with battery and charge the store clerk with attempted murder. Anyone that say they are going to kill you during an altercation is IN DEED guilty of attempted murder.



  33. 33

    I find it hard to believe that a stranger:

    1. would know you were gay from a distance
    2. would beat you up for no reason
    3. everyone would stand around and watch.

    It sounds like a fight from someone that he knew who told everyone that he was going to beat him up so they showed up

    Just like high school…..we all had our fights at the park at 3pm after school.

    Him being gay has nothing to do with it. he was beat up by a bully who knew him and didn't like him.

    Re: Ivybby – yes seriously. These are very serious subjects.



  35. 35

    Re: Dusss – Perez is gay. This is personal for him. And there are plenty of pro-feminism, anti-racism blogs out there, if you want to read about that why don't you go there instead of dictating the owner of this what to post in it?



  36. 36

    I can't believe some of the comments I have just read after watching this video. It reminds me why the world is the way it is. Have some compassion. "Shit happens"????? Really? I don't understand how you could watch that, and have that response. What is wrong with you?

  37. Dusss says – reply to this

    Re: giabread – i came here for celebrity gossip…. that is what this website is all about right?

    And I think it's great that Perez uses the opportunity to reach a lot of people trough this website. Definitely! But… there are so many things that need attention. Bullying in general for example!



  38. 38

    sounds more like black on black violence too me.



  39. 39

    I don't believe him. I can't say that he's definitely lying, but I don't believe his story.
    Of course that type of crap happens all the time… but he just seems like he's making things up.



  40. 40

    I am Canadian and I would like to know the address of BP. Please know that I was in my youth someone who never watched violent acts. I always jumped in even at a weight of 110 lbs I never sat in the mob and watched an act of violence. I didn't agree with homosexuality but as I grew older I realized that it is for God to decide what he thinks or will do should it be "sinful" not "us." I want you to know that I would have jumped in gun or no gun and I think that the clerk should be charged as an accomplis as he watched and could not even phone the police, he is as guilty. There are good people. Poster 1 is not one of those people but many would have. You held your own and you can snap every second for what you accomplished in that moment. My only hope is that the man you kick the crap out of won't shoot first next time. I am so sorry this happen to you but if I was there and now 49 years old, I would have club him n the head or jumped on him after ensuring the clerk made that call. There are people who believe everyone has a right to go about their business without getting attacked for who they are. I am glad you did not die in this incident as many do. Sorry for the mentality of the ignorant.



  41. 41

    I could never even imagine what i would do if a situation like that unfolded infront of me but i wouldnt have just STOOD THERE. Wow. Things like this make me loose all hope in humanity. I wish i would have been there to help.



  42. 42

    Sure it's sad, if it's true, BUT it's not what I come to this site for. You're pressing the self destruct button Perez.



  43. 43

    I feel bad for this guy. Very brave. I would advise him to get the fuck away from Detroit, thats one fucked up area and I would NEVER live there.



  44. 44

    I gope this story goes virul to expose this liar. But a gay black man getting a fist in the face for being a bitch isn't going to go too much further than this site.



  45. 45

    DO WE HAVE TO KEEP READING ABOUT ALL THIS KIND OF STUFF? WHERE IS SOMETHING HAPPY? AND DONT SAY ANGIE AND BRAD CAUSE ILL PUKE. HOW ABOUT PRINT THE LIST OF ALL THE CELEBRITIES THAT GAVE A SHIZZ ABOUT JAPAN AND DONATED SOME OF THEIR HARD EARNED CASH. CAN U DO THAT? I KNOW U HAVE ACCESS TO NAMES AND AMOUNTS. I KNOW MY GIRL SANDRA BULLOCK DONATED A COOL MILLION. SO MR. JESSAZZ JAMES CAN YOU TOP THAT? DONT THINK SO!!



  46. 46

    Re: gwen01 – U ARE SO RIGHT GIRL, IT IS FOR GOD TO DECIDE WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG IN THE FREE WILL DEPT. GLAD TO READ SOMEONE ON HERE KNOWS A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY THINGS SHOULD BE, BUT SADLY NOT.



  47. 47

    This breaks my heart. Honestly. And more than anything it angers me. Nobody deserves to be treated that way. Why can't people realize that if we treated each person as a human being, rather than for being gay, or being a different race, or practicing a different religion, or whatever.., the world in general would be a much better place. Every living person on this planet is human. Every living person on this planet has feelings. Every living person on this planet deserves to be treated like a human being. It's 2011 and the HATE and PREJUDICE needs to stop.



  48. 48

    OMG!! Do you guys that comment actually read what you have written before posting??And if half of you hate Perez so much Why The Fuck Are You Reading His Blog!!!

    and @luvs2tango - 'shit happens!' - FUCK YOU!!!



  49. 49

    Most people are assholes, anyway, so this is not surprising.



  50. 50

    the society is so screwed
    but what can we expect if we admire people like "snooki" or what ever her name is and watch reallity shows like kate plus 8, hills, the kardashians, and all that garbage.



  51. 51

    i feel bad for him and i hope he gets justice. but for gods sake learn to talk at a normal speed you made an over 8 minute vid on a video that should have been 2 min long. super super super over dramatic pauses almost made me root for the robber had killed you.



  52. 52

    Re: luvs2tango – hope you remember that when you or one of your loved ones is dying or injured and asking for help and no one cares



  53. 53

    Good on him, honestly… people can be so horrible. I think the people who are the worst in this situation are the employee and those who watched and said nothing. My brother was walking down some stairs at the train station after school once, and the train came. A bunch of older boys came running past , and knocked him down the stairs. He broke his leg, and had to crawl onto the train, because everyone who got off the train and who was getting on the train ignored him and just walked straight past. He was clearly in pain, everyone had seen him fall over, and no one helped him. People don't surprise me in the least anymore.



  54. 54

    This situation is terrible. It happens so many times … We shouldn't be afraid of going out but we are at a point where we are afraid to go out because there is so much violence outside.



  55. 55

    Stick to gossip. Create a separate site for your pet agendas, like Gay Hilton, GaGa Hilton, Washington Hilton etc… This site is just no fun any more.



  56. 56

    he keeps looking to the left…LIAR!!



  57. 57

    This is not right but people have to refrain from making stupid comments about straight people that don't pertain to everyone.I don't have to like the gay life style does not mean I'am going to treat gay people like crap or beat the hell out of them for being gay.I think there's more to the story here but this goes on too much for gay or straight people.I have seen people standing there when bad things are happening to someone else and I always say something ,it only takes one person the same way it takes one person to start something and others to join them.Why in the world would anyone be laughing in a situation like that is crazy.Too many people spreading hate about things they don't understand as well, respect what people like or don't like the same way you want to be respected bashing others because they don't agree with you is the same as spreading your own hate because you are mad that everyone hasn't jumped on the gay agenda.



  58. 58

    I spread the word Perez.. This is bull.



  59. 59

    This is hardly the big deal you all are making this out to be….!



  60. 60

    makes me soo angry



  61. 61

    That video is very disturbing…how someone can treat another person like that is beyond me…
