So sad.. any domestic violence is and this is just terrible. It happens in our community as well as in the straight community.I just wish that it hadn't reached the point of violence and that maybe they would have seeked counseling and or therapy,rest in peace.

I still don't get the 50+ guys with the 20 something guys. It's always an unegual power relationship.

Domestic Violence is on the rise in our community. Sadly there is very little we can count on as far law enforcement to protect us. To the comment about younger guys being with older guys and having unequal power. Yes it can be true but there can be unequal power in any relationship with people of any age..I survived a horribly abusive partner that was only 2yrs my senior..I hope that anyone that is in an abusive situation can find the courage to get out and get the help that they need..No one deserves and doe not have to put up with that behavior.

Unequal power? The elder of the two just so happen to be in his bed asleep in his underwear when he was struck in the head with a hammer!! There's no measure of power in the mix when it comes to that situation. A 6 year old girl could kill the most fit adult given the opportunity, tools and desire. Sexuality, straight or gay, this happens everyday in the world. So, tiniert1, the only strike to be given here is to your use of the English language, as well as your grammar and use of puncuations. The two guys that lost their lives happen to be very close friends of mine and Michael touched lives around the world.
