Two Men Beaten on Beach in Oregon Hate Crime

Mar 24, 2009 Full story: lezgetreal.com

The Seaside Police Department is reporting that two 22-year-old men walking along the beach in that town, were beaten unconscious in what appears to have been a hate crime.

Early Sunday Seaside officers responded to the Best Western hotel on a report that two men had been assaulted on the beach.

The victims, two openly gay nursing students from Wash. State, told police they were attacked after they had been at a campfire on the beach and decided to walk towards the water and say they were jumped by three or four young white males dressed in black who beat them unconscious, leaving one of them with a significant eye injury. The men also reported that their attackers made anti-gay statements during the assault.

I recently got my concealed weapons permit. I will not allow myself to become a victim nor a statistic.

The majority of these attacks all seem to have one common thread. It is done by at least a pair of assailants and usually a group. And no matter what you personal feeling are about guns, I promise that if one of us was being beat down and moments away from being put in a coma or dead, getting a couple shots off may be the difference between surviving or being a thread here in Topix.

It's really sad that it's gotten to the point that we have to take steps like that. I'm going to give you the same advice my father did... if you're going to pull the gun you have to be willing to use it! Hopefully you'll never have to make that move.

if you'd asked me even 5 years ago if I would actually shoot someone, I would have said no. Now, though, I'd just consider it a service to society, getting rid of one more piece of filth who makes life miserable for everyone else.

Even if there were a temporary backlash from any shooting of a would be gay basher, word gets around. We've been easy marks for too long. Homophobes may be impaired, but they can understand that violence might work two ways.

It is a rare occurence for something like this to happen in Oregon. However, I am with you. I've had my concealed weapon permit for some time and am very capable of using it if need be. Gays & lesbians need to take control of their own safety. Once we start doing that we will not be such a target. You don't see skin heads or KKK going into black areas and making problems do you? Malcolm X had a point.
