Matthew Shepard
On October 6, 1998, 21-year-old college student Matthew Shepard was tied to a fence in Laramie, Wyoming, pistol-whipped, then left for dead in the freezing night. He died six days later.

Brandon Teena
Born Teena Brandon and raised as a girl, he was living as a man known as Brandon Teena in Falls City, Nebraska, when he was murdered at age 21. In December of 1993, two men who discovered his gender raped him. His attackers later shot and killed him after learning Brandon had reported the rape and was to help police in the investigation.

Danny Overstreet
On September 22, 2000, a man looking to "waste some faggots" entered a gay bar in Roanoke, Virginia and opened fire, killing Danny Overstreet, and injuring 6 others.

JR Warren
On the fourth of July, 2000, JR Warren, 26, who was black and gay, was beaten to death by three men in West Virginia, then run over by a car to make it look like a hit and run.

PFC Barry Winchell
Pfc. Barry Winchell, 21, was beaten to death by fellow servicemembers while sleeping in his cot on July 5, 1999 at Fort Campbell, Ky. His Army colleagues thought (correctly) that he was gay, so they killed him.

Billy Jack Gaither
Billy Jack Gaither, 39, of Sylacauga, Alabama was bludgeoned to death by two men on Feb. 19, 1999, then set on fire with automobile tires because he was gay.

Bill Clayton
On May 8, 1995, Bill Clayton, 17, committed suicide after having been brutally assaulted for being bisexual.

Tyra Hunter
On August 7, 1995, Tyra Hunter died after DC fire department emergency medical technicians called her epithets, backed away, and refused to render treatment on discovering that she was a transgendered woman.

30. yeah, I know.
I was being facetious because I can't understand how those who have a God of Love and Peace can hate people so much.

these murders are exactly why we need hate speech laws.

42. Don't get me wrong....
I feel that pain and disgust.... and it irks me deep that they even played up that he was affiliated with anything remotely spiritual. I know I am not his judge, but this is where I break down and say there HAS to be a special room in hell for this type person....

...and then I repent of the thought. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

11. Falwell celebrated in the deaths of people such as this. I will therefore celebrate his death.
Very sobering and sad post, Madspirit. This is precisely why we need hate crimes legislation in this country.

Edited on Thu May-17-07 02:50 PM by Husb2Sparkly
This is NEVER okay. But Falwell and the other haters made such crimes just hunky dory. No big deal. Deserved. Tolerable. God's will.

This is NEVER okay.

20. You have no class and are no better than him.
Edited on Thu May-17-07 03:24 PM by Forkboy
Or so some will tell you.

So,in order to prove those people correct I've come up with a schedule for my week ahead.If I'm going to be accused of being just like him I'm damn well going to enjoy the benefits that come with being a world class bastard!

Day 1 - Use my cable network to swindle millions from the gullible,lonely and scared.

Day 2 - Use that money to further my hateful agenda towards the weakest and most vulnerable in our society.

Day 3 - Use my new found power and influence to get more powerful people at the very top of governement to help continue my agenda with even more vigor and strength.

Day 4 - Use any available disaster,no matter how horrendous,as a launching pad to blame the people I think are responsible for all the world's ills.Luckily enough for me,these are the same people from Day 2,so no one will really ever hold me responsible for those words.In fact when I die those people will be compared to me! I love this racket,I really do.

Day 5 - Offer to flip the switch on the electric chair of some convicted criminal,because the Ten Commandments are just for the suckers.

Day 6 - Foment instability in the hope of the Second Coming happening as soon as we can engineer it.

Day 7 - Sit back,count my money,laugh at the people who hate me,laugh at the people who love me,laugh at the ones in between who fall my shit.Light my (Cuban) cigar with $100 bills,fat belly rolling with glee as I laugh about how dumb people are.Prepare to start process over again the next day.

35. Well I left myself some free time to swim in my cross-shaped swimming pool.
And I just added a KKK Hood Teepee to the playroom where I play Cowboys and Infidels,so it's not all work.

24. Sadly, this is an old list.
Edited on Thu May-17-07 03:33 PM by JackBeck
From NYC the three most recent hate crimes that come to mind are: the beating of Kevin Aviance; the young African-American man who was dismembered and stuffed in trash bags that were found in a subway tunnel; and the gay man who was lured to a remote spot by a bunch of kids, robbed, beaten, then repeatedly run over by a car driven by one of the kids.

26. Yes...you're right.
I should know it's an old list. There have been many, many more who have been tragic victims of hate.

But, of course, some assholes would say that Federal Hate Crimes legislation is wrong...violates free speech and all. Said assholes should be on the receiving end of these kind of vicious crimes.

Get plenty of rest between now and then, buddy.

29. My two Senators will be voting for it.
Unless both Dick Durbin and Barack Obama get lobotomized and somehow are transformed into drooling hatemongers, they'll vote for it. Nevertheless, I have their Washington office phone numbers.

Thanks, guy. :-)

23. Hate the haters
Edited on Thu May-17-07 03:40 PM by undergroundpanther
Because if we do not hate the haters we'll be hurt abused and manipulated,
A sin of omission of by standing,of being passive and spewing words of false piety when a hater kills is wrong.

If you fail to be morally outraged at the intolerable immoral acts and words of haters,than you are not all that moral.

Karma does not occur unless someone steps up and risks to become the Daka/ Dakini that balances the hater's cruelty with a well deserved hateful response This is the antidote to his hate,the response of hate that says NO, you cannot do that to those people, NO, bully you cannot say that without feeling my wrath in return as I draw the boundary that limits what you do, bully.. WE need to create a social BOUNDARY upon bullies.Make and enforce a limit on what kinds of hate and bigotry are morally wrong..Hating people for existing is WRONG, hating people for being what they are is wrong
Hating a bully because he harms is NOT wrong it is boundary making. It is justice it is true karmas.Karma is not dispensed after death it is dispensed by you and I when we say enough is enough and cease tolerating abusers.

Hate the haters for their hatefulness..for hating haters is the only way to protect the gentle people,different/creative people,marginalized people, weaker people,from the predatory psychopaths among us who would do anything hateful because they believe by our tolerance of their hateful ways that they can get away with doing it..

Make hating incur COST to the hater.After all they are the cause of the hate.

Enough letting the victims of hate bear the stains and pain of psychopath bigots and their hateful beliefs no more excuses.
YOU can be the effect in response to that"causer",and stop the hate by stopping the tolerance and pity of haters who abuse and victimize.

Draw the boundary line and enforce it,with fists and guns if necessary.Do not by stand while bullies cross the line of all things moral with the intolerable and unspeakable...words and deeds.We do not have to tolerate the intolerable.To do that victimizes us all.

32. "Done to death by slanderous tongue"
A very sad commentary on the evil that Jerry Falwell, his ilk and spawn have loosed upon the world.

45. Not to sound insensitive
but are there any statistics on hate crime that are a little more recent? I'd be curious to know, given that republicans have been in charge now for a good long time, if and how hate crime has fluctuated. If we are to say that the incitement for that hate is coming from right-wing sources like Falwell, then given the increasing strength their voices have had over the years, one could reasonably expect hate-crime to have gone up significantly.

Any ideas on statistics nowadays?

Thanks.
