Gay Oklahoma Teen Fights To Change State Hate Crime Laws After Brutal Attack

| Filed under: InspirationSad Sad

A thousand gold stars for 18-year-old Cody Rogers!

He is still recovering from a brutal beating he received as a reward for he stepping in to defend his 21-year-old female friend at a party.

Cody says that:

"I stepped in and they threw me to the ground — obviously, I’m a little beat up."

Um… understatement!! Cody's assailants screamed gay slurs as they kicked and punched until he lost consciousness!!

Even though party goers are "100 percent [sure] that this was a hate crime" the police records classified this attack as simple assault — because sexual orientation is not protected class in Oklahoma.

This brave teen has started a Facebook page dedicated to changing the law.
