commented on Fort Worth Police Chief: That Faggot Had It Coming
I hope this circulates not only America, but the world. I am an American living in the United Kingdom and am saddened to hear of this. It is already consensus amongst my UK friends that Texas is not a safe place to visit due to the overwhelming hatred felt coming from there. I've always defended it, saying that while that may be true in some cases, there are pockets of hatred around the globe. How can I continue to defend if these things keep happening? I sincerely hope justice will be served in this case to set an example that hatred will not be tolerated by anyone, and no person is above the law. That may be a very idealist viewpoint, but I think if people took a harder stance on hate crimes comitted by those sworn to protect then some public may follow. Not all, of course, but how can the citizens be expected to uphold certain laws if the law enforcement officials refuse to?
