Short rant: I'm SOOOO thankful that the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes bill was passed recently, just for this. This loser assault guy is now going to get to go to prison for hate crime charges because he and his buds attacked a couple because they assumed the two men to be gay. This story is for all those people who said hate crime legislation is just going to make it easier for upset gay people to get mad at religious folk for not letting them do what they want in the church; people REALLY DO get attacked, raped, and even murdered because of their sexual orientation and/or identity.
And NOW, we have the protection against it. Thank goodness the government did something right.
