It's amazing how liberals use one event to paint with such a broad brush. Real hate crimes against gays are almost non-existant. Of course the gay lobby wants to classify anytime you look at a gay guy wrong as a hate crime.
That's exactly it. The Matthew Shepard case was horrible, but it was -- probably like this one -- an anomaly. But the media and the liberal establishment turned it into a widespread "cultural problem." Well, will they do the same with this one? Don't bet on it.
