Re: Hate Crimes and Wait Times

Posted by on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 at 4:16 PM

On Thursday I wrote this:

This morning I'm being called out on Twitter for not blogging or tweeting about a gay conservative who claims he was brutally assaulted in his home in Madison, Wisconsin. The story is all over conservative blogs but I can't find any mention of it on any actual news websites in Wisconsin. The details of the alleged assault seem incredible. And I'm not blogging or tweeting about it for the same reason I didn't blog or tweet about the lesbian in Nebraska or the gay guy at UNC. The story smells funny to me.

I was still getting called out on Twitter by homocons for ignoring this story even after the Madison Police Department updated the incident report this afternoon:

In an interview this afternoon with Madison Police detectives, the victim in this case recanted his earlier statements in regards to this crime. This crime, alleged to have occurred on High Street in the South Police District, will be cleared as "Unfounded" for case reporting purposes. Once follow up investigation is completed, MPD's case file will be reviewed with Dane County District Attorney's Office.

The Isthmus has the full story.

The response will be 'Well yeah, but it COULD have been true, and you still ignored it.' You'll never win.

These kinds of behaviors should carry heavy fines.

The South Police District of the Madison Police Department is dominated by gay and lesbian Democrats. Duh. Everybody knows that.
