Ever notice that when a queer gets into a little scuffle it's always "brutal", "attack", "hate crime". If it wasn't a queer it would just be a couple of people getting into an argument.
Wow ..... I wonder what your definition of a brutal attack is.

They planned it in advance. Their plan and objective was to beat him to death ..... to kill him. They took him to a remote location where no one would see or hear. They dragged him out of the vehicle into the road and began beating him. He escaped while they were searching in the vehicle for a tire iron to finish killing him. He's only alive because while they were getting the tire iron he ran and threw himself over a ledge.

That's a bit more than a 'scuffle'.

I'm fine with executing people for the crime of kidnapping. Short of that, they should get life in prison in solitary confinement. That's why SuperMax was built.

Luckily for the world there are still men who look like men and not like the expressionless gorillas one sees around all too often; but I'm sure these last give you a sense of belonging - somewhere at least ..

I don't agree with that because the kidnappers at that point point have a vested interest in killing the victim because no one to testify and they are facing the death sentence regardless.

The news article states .....

"During the hearing,(I'm removing the name) testified her husband (name removed by me) used to beat her up and was prone to violence. Another woman testified (he) once raped and beat her."

Sorry about cutting the names but the mod has been zapping a lot of posts with even the names of people in news articles.

But if they're in solitary it's less likely they will be killed. Of course "accidents" do happen even in solitary......

That's true. But in this case, luckily the victim escape or he almost certainly would have been murdered. Because of that, I would execute these 2 criminals.

There have already been pictures of the kidnappers and attempted murderers posted on line with previous stories. A quick search for "Anthony & Jason Jenkins" will bring you those results.
I am glad that they posted a photo of Mr. Pennington this time, for contrast. The perps appear to be much stronger than he is, and I can now understand better why he had to jump off a cliff to escape from them. He was outnumbered and out-muscled by two ignorant cowards.
He got into the car planning on taking their money and beating the women. Surprise, surprise.

If this alledged drug trafficker changes his story one more time the state will drop prosecution and the fed shortly thereafter. Going to get cigarettes is just a little bit different than hooking up to the Fla. Pipeline.

Money not orientation. The thief and drug dealer just happened to be a puffer.

and before any one yells about it..I think justice should be done but I also think crimes against all people should be treated the same...and should be reported and follow ups done for all victims,,,not one group more than others.

I agree.

Some years ago, there was a group pushing a "Crime Victim's Rights" amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Some of the provisions of the amendment was that all crime victims were entitled to be kept fully informed at each step of the process during investigation, prosecution, and conviction, and upon conviction they were entiltled to give a victim impact statement, and seek financial compensation for injuries, and\or death of a loved one, from teh person convicted.

Congress refuses to pass this amendment, although I cannot understand what their reasoning was.

I think the group pushing this is still active as they still have a website:

They aren't.

It's just that since, well, forever, anything done to a gay person was swept under the rug and frequently not followed-up at all.

That's overstating the issue.

We are in a period of transition. Once Equality is settled things will quiet down ... on our side, at least.

Our opposition will undoubtedly keep frothing away.
