From the book...

But what really happened to Matthew Shepard?

He was beaten, tortured, and killed by one or both of the men now serving life sentences. But it turns out, according to Jiminez, that Shepard was a meth dealer himself and he was friends and sex partners with the man who led in his killing. Indeed, his killer may have killed him because Shepard allegedly came into possession of a large amount of methamphetamine and refused to give it up.

THE TRUTH FINALLY COMES OUT!!!

Why don't you tell that garbage to Mr. Shepard's family? Go ahead, see how far it will get you. Mr. Shepard's animal MURDERERS are in prison, where they belong, for life.

Breitbart.com , where this "review" comes from is another right wing site in the vein of Fox, and has been rebuked many times for their slanted reporting.(google Shirley Sherrod) Of course they love anything that supports inequality. Just goes to show how much it sucks to be a Republican!

No, worse. It's Breitbart.com . That's what's left of Andrew Breitbart. He is the guy that took an excerpt from a video of a government official speaking to the NAACP and twisted it all out of context...costing her her job. He was a hack.

Personally, I wonder about books like this that come out so long after the fact. No one has a perfect memory and many just want to get their name in the list of "contributors" so they may pepper their little tales with a bit more spice.

The courts made a judgement and put away the killers. At this point, it doesn't matter to me if it was a hate crime or not -- just that justice was served.

I'm sure Aaron Hicklin was paid well to write that book, and we can guess who some of the donors might have been. Regardless, there's definitely an agenda behind a book like that.

Were one of the killers gay, I cannot imagine that the anti gay would have allowed that to be kept secret all these years. That would have changed the dynamic in their favor for the last 15 years. No, I do not see them allowing that to be kept quiet.

Most killers don't torture their victims to death.

It is true the killers of Matthew Shepard attempted to use the "Gay Panic" defense while also later trying to claim their motivation was not because he was gay. The drug excuse has been used before. This is nothing new.

Yet both girlfriends testified Matt was targeted because he was gay: "During the trial, Chastity Pasley and Kristen Price, girlfriends of McKinney and Henderson, testified that Henderson and McKinney had both plotted beforehand to rob a gay man." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Shepard

Now, long after the trial and conviction, McKinney admits Matt was targeted and killed for being gay:“The night I did it, I did have hatred for homosexuals,” McKinney is quoted as saying. He goes on to say that he still dislikes gays and that his perceptions about Shepard’s sex life bolstered his belief that the killing was justified.

McKinney and his accomplice, Russell Henderson, targeted Shepard at a bar in Laramie in part because they assumed he was gay:

“Well, he was overly friendly. And he was obviously gay,” McKinney is quoted as saying.“That played a part ... his weakness. His frailty. And he was dressed nice. Looked like he had money

”http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id /33074488/ns/today-entertainme nt/t/laramie-sequel-gives-voic e-shepards-killer/

What Tectonic found, and found most troubling, "is that so much of the town is rewriting the crime as not a hate crime," said Stephen Belber, a writer on both "Laramie Project" incarnations.

The irony: The primary killer now admits that it was.

"Matt Shepard&#8203; needed killing," Aaron McKinney bluntly told Tectonic company member Greg Pierotti for the epilogue, which includes the first interviews with McKinney and Russell Henderson since 2004.

"As far as Matt is concerned, I don't have any remorse," McKinney said during nine hours of talks with Pierotti. "The night I did it, I did have hatred for homosexuals."

McKinney's initial motive was robbery. But he targeted Shepard, he said, because "he was obviously gay. That played a part. His weakness. His frailty."

McKinney now calls himself "the poster child for hate-crime murders."

And of course, the whole point is to advance the irrational, unsupportable conclusion hate crimes don't really happen, despite all evidence to the contrary, which continues to grow daily.

They also rely on the absurd notion the victim somehow deserved to be crucified.

Denial remains a strong ego defense mechanism.

And YOU were there and witnessed the whole thing, we can assume? Were you? Please, let us know, were you there and did you know what really happened?

Read the whole article in The Advocate. According to it, the new book is iffy at best on any new facts or statements.

Of course, you choose to only believe what you choose to believe, Breitbart would be so proud, if he hadn't dropped dead of a heart attack.

So you too were there and know the whole truth? Odd you didn't try to stop a murder, since you were there and know all the facts and know the full truth.

Were you there?

You can leave it to bigots to try to demonize an innocent gay man who was killed by two OTHER bigots. Matthew Sheppard was a human being who had a right to live.

The article in The Advocate, if you were too lazy to read it, is highly suspect of the book, and it is full of half facts.

The murderers ADMITTED the heinous crime. I am not surprised you did not want to believe the truth, however. You remind me of those guys who laugh at rape or other terrible crimes.

What is really disturbing is the fact that you, and the others, are getting a kick a happy little out of a murder, no matter who was murdered. That says all we need to know about YOU.
