Children charged in attack on lesbian in Missouri
1 hour ago

Three children from the same family are in juvenile custody after allegedly attacking a Missouri woman, and the victim believes she was targeted because she is gay.

The Southeast Missourian ( http://bit.ly/QoSkT6) reports that Jeana Terry, 41, and her partner Lisa Lange were inside their home July 24 when a 16-year-old girl who lives nearby allegedly began shouting anti-gay slurs. The girl then allegedly gathered her 13-year-old sister and 11-year-old brother, went to Terry's porch and pulled her outside when she came to the door, according to authorities.

"Once I was down, it was pure chaos," Terry said, describing being repeatedly kicked and hit.

Lange called 911, then ran out to help free Terry from the fight.

"They were kicking, stomping and beating the hell out of her," neighbor Mima Poole said.

1. Disgusting- The 16 year old should be locked up

The 13 and 11 year old should be put into some serious therapy.

4. I hope the oldest one is charged as an adult.

This was a hate crime, and I hope she gets what's coming to her.

The brats are trash and probably always will be, but they need to know they can't get away with shit like this.

7. ...The fight was then joined, Terry said, by the 13-year-old sister and two friends....


...

The couple say the teen began shouting slurs at them, as had happened on several other occasions, and they responded by telling her to get off their property. There have been other times in the past several months, the couple said, that they have told the children's parents that they were concerned with anti-gay slurs coming from the children. But no physical threats had happened until now.

The couple say the 16-year-old girl brought her younger brother onto the couple's porch and pulled Terry outside when she opened the door, then began hitting her. The fight was then joined, Terry said, by the 13-year-old sister and two friends, who neighbors say were summoned by the oldest girl by phone just before the commotion began. Neighbors said the two friends were able to get away before police arrived. They are not in custody.

8. 16-years-old is not a child

But she probably learned this kind of vile behavior from her stupid parents. As for the younger 2 children, perhaps they can still be salvaged as useful citizens one day, although I'm not as hopeful for the 16-year-old. . . .

9. As Mike Malloy explains the basis for such hate...

 

"It's in the Bible, you know."

12. Unreal...

When i think about brainwashing, I think about Orwell or Huxley.

Not the great American South .


I don't understand how anyone can read this and not be horrified.


this is a hate crime .

The children are under 18 , so the parents are responsible.

All three go to child services, after they have paid their debt to society.


Also, someone needs to get their ass kicked.


Don't they know that the bible says that Vengeance belongs to the Lord, not man?

In the Bible, Usury is a sin, but I bet they all have Home loans and Truck notes.

You never hear of them assaulting bankers...
