Woman married during repeal of Michigan's gay marriage ban assaulted and called gay slur
Mlive.com ^ | April 01, 2014 | Kyle Feldscher

Three men in Ypsilanti Township Monday assaulted a woman who was able to marry her partner during the brief repeal of Michigan’s gay marriage ban.


Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies reported the 28-year-old woman got off the bus about 6 p.m. Monday in the area of the 3000 block of Roundtree Boulevard in Ypsilanti Township.


The woman told investigators she got off the bus in the area and was walking home through an apartment parking lot. Three men approached her, with one of them using a homophobic slur, calling her a derogatory name for a woman and asking her if she had recently been on the news.


A man then punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground and causing her to lose consciousness. When she woke up, one of the men was kicking her in the torso.


The men then fled from the area on foot. One of the men is described as white, 5-feet-10 inches to 5-feet-11 inches tall, heavy set and with a low or husky voice. The other two men could not be identified.


Investigators said the woman has recently been in the news because she was able to marry her partner in Washtenaw County. A federal court decision struck down Michigan’s ban on gay marriage in late March, with couples able to get married for one day.


Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to call the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at 734-973-7711 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).

She can identify one man but has no ideas about the other 2 despite this attack taking place in broad daylight?

Oh golly gosh, suspicious me... Let’s see how long this story last before it’s outed as fake.

Or maybe it will be the one exception that proves the rule.

Not only broad daylight, but in an apartment parking lot when the residents are returning home after work and nobody witnessed this?
I don’t think so.

All of them. But it doesn’t matter if the fake hate crime is in fact a hoax, because what’s important is that the sentiment exists.

“One of the men was described as white....” When was the last time a crime of any kind was reported that included “One of the men was described as BLACK”?

I have my doubts that this happened. If it did, that’s some redneck pr**ks in Michigan.

*******************************************************************

My HOAXmeter is registering at its max reading. These HOAXes ALL involve perps who are white males being either racist or homophobic.

The poor young lady so wants to be victimized and in the papers as a victim. The fact is...NOBODY cares about her or her “spouse” or their wretched lives.

See what I have to share my county with. Who knows what's true. It IS Ypsi, which is a mix of EMU college town and hippy democrats, along with UAW and also the ghetto (and some whites are ghetto there too).

I can see this being BS, but again. It IS Ypsi. I can easily see some union steward goons doing this like they did to Clint Tarver. I was the AFP tent that day, and while I didn't hear it directly, I did see the goons in action destroy the tent.

Let’s make a pool on how many days it will be before this is declared a hoax. I’ll start, claiming 10 days. 11 April.

Woman married during repeal of Michigan's gay marriage ban assaulted and called gay slur

Given the known track record of people claiming 'homophobic' attacks in recent years, color me skeptical.

And no, she wasn't 'married'.

Actually we don’t even know if she really was attacked because there are no other witnesses. Hell she probably beat herself up then called the police.

Well, it is April Fool’s day.

I will question this: where are the photos of injury or medical verification?

If this happened, it is another egregious wanton act of violence.

Two comments:

1. This is probably a bogus story.

2. The “woman” forgot to say the perps claimed to be good Tea Party members during the attack.

Just like that phony claim by the black congressman that he was called the "N" word by Tea Party demonstrators.
