Black Lesbians Charged With Hate Crime After Beating White Gay Man at Train Station & Busting His Nose

This is a wild story…
A group of black lesbians beat a white gay male at the Forest Hills T station and busting his nose.
Now they’re being charged with a hate crime.

The Boston Herald reported:

Three women identified by their lawyers as lesbians were arraigned yesterday on a hate crime charge for allegedly beating a gay man at the Forest Hills T station in an unusual case that experts say exposes the law’s flawed logic.

“My guess is that no sane jury would convict them under those circumstances, but what this really demonstrates is the idiocy of the hate-crime legislation,” said civil liberties lawyer Harvey Silverglate. “If you beat someone up, you’re guilty of assault and battery of a human being. Period. The idea of trying to break down human beings into categories is doomed to failure.”

Prosecutors and the ACLU of Massachusetts said no matter the defendants’ sexual orientation, they can still face the crime of assault and battery with intent to intimidate, which carries up to a 10-year prison sentence, by using hateful language.

“Someone who is Jewish can be anti-Semitic,” said ACLU staff attorney Sarah Wunsch. “The mere fact that someone is a member of the same class doesn’t mean they could not be motivated by hatred for their very own group.”

But Carolyn Euell, 38, mother of two of the defendants, Erika Stroud, 21, of Dorchester and Felicia Stroud, 18, West Roxbury, told reporters the alleged attack “can’t be hateful” because both her daughters are lesbians.

Prosecutor Lindsey Weinstein said the two sisters and one of their domestic partners, Lydia Sanford, also a defendant, viciously beat the man Sunday, repeatedly punching and kicking him after he bumped them with his backpack on a stairwell.

She said the victim, who suffered a broken nose, told cops he believed the attack was “motivated as a crime because of his sexual orientation” since the three women “called him insulting homophobic slurs.”

But attorney Helene Tomlinson, who represented Sanford, told the judge her client is “openly identified as a lesbian … so any homophobic (conduct) is unwarranted.” She said the alleged victim was the aggressor and used racial slurs: “He provoked them.”

    When is Barry going to host a Beer Summit with the guy and declaim he acted stupidly by being white?

    Sorry, this whole notion of hate crime is just political correctness run amuck. Just prosecute the animals for assault and make the sentence stick, NO plea bargaining simply because they are members of some perceived minority.

    I’m guessing they thought they were beating up whitey, except whitey turned out to be gay.

    Throw these people in jail!

    They’ve forced these absurd laws on us, now let them be punished by them.

    Assault is assault. But anyway, I hope they are charged and beheaded. Thats the punishment nowadays for not agreeing with special rights for gays, right? ha

    Hate crime legislation is proof that some pigs are more equal than others. Blind Justice has been superseded by Social Justice. The Rule of Law is no more.

  • JoeAstroturf

    Eric Holder is in a real pickle now. Don’t take up for the gay guy and offend Rahm Emanuel and Obama’s boy toy Kal Penn but keep Elena Kagan happy or take up for the gay guy and get the New Black Panther’s mad at him. Sorry Ballerina Rahm. Kal fend for yourself the next time you get rolled in the gay district.

  • FurryGuy

    Rather coincidental that just now I’m watching an episode of Adem-12, Season Three on DVD (aired Feb. 18, 1971), and some radical Black Panther type character is advocating at a press conference armed revolution. As much as things change, how much they stay the same.

    Gays are not the only victims of hate crimes. Some folks are just ignoring the obvious. The problem here wasn’t lesbian and gay but black and white.

    Lady Mondegreen commented:

    ‘splain to us rubes here how what the man had to say was racist?

    I saw a biased observation, but to read racism into the comment is more revealing of your bias and worldview than it was of his. So if you want to peddle such rubbish be prepared to explain why we should consider your opinion worthy of reflection.

    I don’t see most people ignoring the multiple gotchas of this attack. Can’t be any more of a blatant proof of “some pigs are more equal than others”.

    Yes, I am deliberately misquoting Orwell because of the many layers of irony the misquote provides.

    If I were a science fiction writer….
    ……and wanted to write a story based on these personality stereo types……
    ……what kind of civilization would result? And where would the children come from? Would they all be clones? Would ‘genetic material’ be a trade item. Would armed raids be conducted to obtain suitable breed mares, or sires? Would there be a slave trade?

    The mind…. it boggles.

    Everyone is gay and racist, next case please.

  • If you never want to see Jackson or Sharpton again just hang around this guy….. I wonder if he ever played on a lacrosse team….

    Okay, everyone – its time to play “Rank the aggrieved people groups”!!

    We have a gay man

    and two lesbian women

    Hmmm … is it women trumps man?

    Got it – black homosexual trumps white homosexual.

  • Buffalobob

    Like his position on Fast and Furious, Holder was not briefed or privy to the facts of this purported crime.

    Blacks are raised to hate gay men, and even apparently blacks who grow up to be lesbians aren’t immune. Probably didn’t hurt that the victim was white.

    Yeah? Wait until a situation where whites beat up blacks; the shrieking coming from leftists about a hate crime having been committed is likely be loud and long, if history is any guide.

    I wonder when these women became lesbians. When they discovered the white guy who dissed them by his backpack brushing again them was found to be gay? I’ll bet they find a hundred witnesses who will swear they were lesbians. This is he way the black community works. Speaking dissing these morons, this reminds me of the West Point cadet offending Patty Labou, the Red Lobster waitress and whites being pulled from cars. All were beaten up by blacks. Don’t offend these people. You would be taking your life in your own hands. In fact, don’t get anywhere close to them. They might kidnap and rape you. Some factions in the black community are simmering with hate for whites and know the DOJ won’t prosecute them. Holder said so. That is what this crime was all about no matter what no brainer excuses they come up with.

  • JC

    Now wait a minute. They lied to us. That looks like three men to me. Oh I missed that they are butch.

  • Patty

    😆 THAT’S ALL FOLKS!!

  • Hmmmm

    We are all one blood. We are just a collection of different nations coming from the same sinful parents. People will continue to kill and destroy each other until the end. And of course, it is not right. When a person is provoked, they need to exercise self control. If your life is in danger, lethal force is warranted. Were their lives in danger – only those present will be able to testify. Those three women probably wish they had just walked on and kept their cool. Now they could end up in jail for assault. Regardless of what the man may have said or done to spark the attack, the women clearly lost control of their senses, and will, like anyone else who acts outrageously, have to pay the piper. People have to come to their senses and realize that there are consequences to everything that they choose to do.

    A civil liberties lawyer said this? Man, that will get him thrown out of the ACLU. That’s all they ever do.

  • J

    Of course it had to be MA. Up here in the insane asylum, we have police on patrol in an area of boston called the fens. They are there to protect the hookups, in the bushes, by the homosexuals in the area. We have a law on the books that prohibits heterosexuals from engaging in sexual activities in public areas, but allows the gays that “freedom”. Bizarro state.

  • Patty

    I never understood the Political analogy. I need to understand if we are breathing and living beings and we hit, stab, shoot, kill whatever IT IS A CRIME and we must have hated who ever it was we committed crime against.

    This is what is so wrong, created more laws, more failures, more departments within the Government or more regulations and mandate for a few people.

    Hate is hate, crime is crime. PERIOD

  • Patty

    We are becoming a nation of do nothings, people who sit in cubicles who are twisting fingers and are struggling to dream up the next big project.

    Same with Government. The are consecrating more or PC and a new mandate instead of serious issues that face us all.

  • Patty

    Correction:

    concentrating big correction not consecrating

  • aprilnovember811

    Hate crimes are unconstitutional. No one group is entitled to anymore protection than anyone else. If this white man was not gay, it wouldn’t be a hate crime, I assume?

    Are there some crimes that aren’t hateful. This needs to be repealed or turned over by an honest court.

    Hate crime laws were passed by democrats to prosecute white male crimes against any other race. Look at the stats and you will see white males are charged more than 60% of all hate crimes.

  • Comment #12 is right on.

    Once again a group of coloreds attacks a lone human being. The man’s backpack brushed against one of them. That’s it from there no apology would have been sufficient.

    I hope the next time the man – or whoever their next victim is – fights harder & wins.
