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!

    Haha, the PC police commie-libs worst nightmare! Who is more special? HAHAHAHAHA

    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

    The Obama coalition is splintering.

    The word Petard comes to mind. I think the word “hoisted” might be racist.

    Wondered what the delay on the Orange line was Sunday night. We had to sit for a few minutes while they announced a “police matter” was being dealt with.

    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.

    Black values once again on public display,

    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.

    This story was NEVER in the MSM nor was it a “hate crime”.

    The sick things the media will hide for the sake of racial cover-up…

  • Practical Jane

    That is the Funniest Headline of The Year!!

    Hate Crime Laws are an ignorant concept. It’s egregious enough that this man was attacked – whatever the reason. If these women are guilty charge them with assualt, period.

    Remco Kimber, (#12) I suggest you keep your racism to yourself.

    LM #16,

    Actually #12 was not being racist, only observant,

    Lady Mondegreen, (#16) I suggest you keep your bull$hit opinion to yourself. There, fixed it for you!

    Women with poor gender identity and poor gender esteem assault a man with poor gender identity and poor gender esteem.

    If there is security camera footage, it should help to get past the he-said/she-said problems to determine exactly what happened.
