Finally, some closure in the
case. Tyler Clementi
The jury for the hate crime trial, which began on February 21, convicted roommate
Dharun Ravi GUILTY of invasion of privacy AND on the most serious charge, bias intimidation.
Dharun's attorneys agreed that he acted in an immature manner, but stood by their client, stating:
death, dharun ravi, gay, guilty, hate crime, roommate, rutgers university, sexuality, suicide, trial, tyler clement, verdict
Oh wow… we really hope this isn't true.
Multiple reports claim there have been militia attacks targeted at the emo youth and LGBT community!!
Apparently those behind the attacks "warned" the communities of the upcoming massacre a month ago with posters, etc. posted throughout cafes and street corners in Baghdad.
Since the attacks began, local media has reported the numbers of victims so far to range from
emo, hate crime, iraq, lgbt, massacre, militia, murder
We are so proud of you,
The 20 year old was going to let his pain go after he suffered a vicious hate crime and beating at the hands of Atlanta thugs.
But when he saw the
video posted online by his attackers, Brandon decided to speak up.

This is beyond appalling.
A gang is Atlanta targeting a male wearing skinny jeans when he walked out of a store.
He is then viciously attacked and repeatedly called faggot as the gang yells, "no faggots in Jack City."

Assault doesn't even begin to cover what they did to this poor guy. They set him on fire! That's downright torture!
And for what? Really, what is the big, damn deal.
Earlier in the month, we shared a heartbreaking
story about a 26-year-old gay man named Burke Burnett who was ruthlessly beaten and bloodied by three dudes in Texas. Poor Burke was shown no mercy by these fools, who also stabbed him and threw him into a fire. Now, we're hoping the same level of compassion for them as they each face charges of aggravated assault with hate crime enhancements.
The suspected assailants,
assault, beating, burke burnett, charges, cover, felony, fire, gay, gay bashing, hate crime, heartbreak, prison, texas
WHEN WILL THIS STOP!?!
How many times does this have to happen before the government intervenes and PROTECTS OUR FUTURE??
This IS a dramatic issue we're talking about here. The boy came into the room, bam! He's attacked. He tries to walk away, BAM! Attacked again.
He's left with a possible concussion and a chipped tooth while all the fighter got was a whopping three day suspension.
BULL! We're serious. Something REAL needs to be done. Something serious. These are innocent lives being tortured for something they have no control over. ENOUGH!
Occupy Wall Street? Let's Occupy The Classroom too! The hate needs to STOP!
