What kind of parenting would produce such venomous hate in their children? We all know the answer to that. Behavior is learned, and kids model their parents behavior.
The police officer condoned this horrific behavior by not reporting it and taking statements from a key witness. Luke Hankins has experienced hate from the perpetrators and the officer. This is criminal. Our justice system is way too lenient. The boys and the police offecer should be OFF THE STREETS.
Luke Hankins did not deserve this battering and he needs to know that people out there are outraged that he was so maliciously singled out. Many hearts go out to him. I hope he reads this.

Contact your state legislators and demand adding gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered to the people protected by hate crime legislation. Good luck convincing cold-blooded reptile Republicans to consider voting for such legislation.

Now here I go again, forgetting who I am and what I believe in. You see I'm a closet gay who dearly loves to play dress up in really frilly silk underwear and bilowy skirts.
Forgive me Thomas for I know not what I am doing. I must have thought the previous post was made by you which made me angry. Well I was wrong and I apologize, please don't hurt me.

Can we get back to the issue of hate crimes?
I totally agree with Cullen regarding hate crimes.We need an organized way of contacting our legislators about protecting LGBT individuals through hate crime legislation.
The quickest way to contact legislators is through petitions on the internet through Facebook. People can sign and electronically forward these petitions to the politicians. Petitions could be circulated around the city of Asheville and the surrounding area but the internet will elicit many more signatures and send the message that it is not just the gay community who cares. Who out there has the internet expertise to accomplish this? Please respond!

How about the liberal hate towards hard working, normal Americans who care enough about the country to join the TEA Party?
