Town Hall Discussion on Queer-Bashing, Self-Defense
Recently a "town hall meeting" came together to discuss homophobia, hate crimes, and the case of Luke O'Donovan.
On New Year's Eve, a queer teen, Luke O'Donovan, was jumped by a violent mob who called him homophobic slurs and beat him. He was stabbed in the back, and acted in self-defense to save his life. He was arrested at the hospital and is being charged with aggravated assault, while all of his attackers are walking free. The corporate media accused Luke of going on an unprovoked "stabbing spree" - much like recent mass shootings - and made no mention of the queer-bashing which forced Luke to defend himself.
At the time of publishing, Luke has been released from jail, but still faces multiple felony charges. For up-to-date information: http://letlukego.com/
