Gay Nebraska woman tied up, mutilated in hate-crime assault, police say
New York Daily News ^ | July 24 2012 | Erik Ortiz

Posted on 07/24/2012 7:14:04 AM PDT by scottjewell

Three masked men allegedly broke into a 33-year-old lesbian woman’s home, bound her arms and carved anti-gay slurs into her arms and abdomen.

A vigil was held in support of the woman who was allegedly attacked for her sexual orientation.

A 33-year-old Nebraska woman said three masked intruders tied her up, carved homophobic slurs into her skin and then set her house on fire in a shocking case that police are reportedly classifying as a hate crime.

A spokeswoman for the Lincoln Police Department told CNN on Monday investigators found a derogatory slur used against lesbians spray painted inside her home following the attack early Sunday morning.

The woman, an open homosexual who was not identified in local reports, made her way to a neighbor’s home after her assailants left. She called police around 4 a.m. “I was in shock,” neighbor Linda Rappl told CNN. “She was naked, her hands were tied with zip ties. All I could see was a cut across her forehead and blood running down.”

The woman told police three men wearing ski masks broke into her home and bound her hands, the Omaha World-Herald reported. The men also reportedly used a knife to cut the gay slurs into her skin and then doused her home with gasoline to start the blaze.

The comments in the Daily News seem evenly split between those who believe it happened, and those who think like we do that it likely was a hoax. The Daily News readership is mostly NYC leftists.

I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt... FOR NOW, as sometimes, just sometimes, bad and bizarre things do indeed happen to people.
<snip>
I know a lot of folks on here won’t find such an opinion all that popular, but I do try and look at folks as human beings first and foremost, unless the prove unworthy of such consideration.

Seriously, why do you post here if you have such low regard for FReepers? I don't see anything in the comments to justify such a statement. Rather, there is suspicion based on previous incidents.

Likely fishy to the other senses as well.

I was just thinking one other person.

Then I read she “freed” herself and made it over to a neighbor’s house,this is all just her saying it, and now I think it was just her alone who did it.

Maybe because she wasn’t raped or sexually assaulted

Yep. They hated her enough to cut her up and burn her house down, but not enough to rape her. Right.

I could buy the first two - there are plenty of sickos out there - but without the 3rd, it doesn't make sense.

Well, yeah, it does seem so, and this sort of points to her alone as well: ( I had actually thought a huge blaze had been set to the house)

“City fire Inspector Damon Robbins said a match flame ignited vapors from a pool of gasoline on the woman’s floor, but the flash fire did not continue to burn and caused no noticeable damage to the house.”

Probably a bisexual drug snorting dike who was not paying her drug fees cuz she felt special, and the gang went on her and knew she had preferencialist dike mindset and wanted to show her she was not special.

It’s a turf war between gay hippies and gangstas for pimp and drug territory.

Odds are that this is a typical lesbo hoax. I just don’t think people who hate gays would carve a ‘come track us down, we’re anti lesbian’ sign in some dyke. It just makes no sense, why wouldn’t they just just put her in a bag of rocks and throw her in a lake if they hated her that much?

I for one cannot help recalling this similar incident which occurred in May 2012:

“A lesbian couple in Colorado is facing serious charges after the supposed hate crime they were reportedly victims of turned out to be a complete fabrication.

The lesbians claimed to be victims of a hate crime last year after several derogatory messages ...”

I believe the story more if it was three women who had done it to her, it's been my experience that most men who hate gays, actually only hate gay men but are pretty indifferent about Lesbians.

“”The men also reportedly used a knife to cut the gay slurs into her skin and then doused her home with gasoline to start the blaze.”

That right there screams hoax.

Why would they bother scratching something into the skin of someone that they were going to burn up? Nobody would ever see it, so what could be the point?

Very little fire damage after ‘dousing the place with gas’?

No mention of her being burned. Wouldn't they have dumped the gas on her?

No mention of rape or severe beating, if fact, no mention of anything that she couldn't have done herself!

Yeah, if they put this up on InTrade, I would buy 1000 shares of “hoax”.

Let’s see, 3 “masked attackers” who she can’t identify just happen to decide they want to commit a home invasion and torture crime because she is gay. Yeah, that happens all of the time. Then, they only mutilate their victim on parts of the body that the victim could have easily reached themselves with a knife. Then, the “perps” decide to burn the house, but don’t bother to kill her first. Also, they just happen to have tied her up loosely enough that she can escape the burning house just in the nick of time and stumble over to her neighbors.

Hate crime my ass. It’s a hoax.

I wonder what was written. Also, was it written backwards from standing in front of a mirror? Where was it written? On her back? Or front?

I remember some celebrity wrote something like ‘good bye’ on his knuckles but it actually said ‘bye good’ when viewed from the front. He is writing from left to right but it would have been viewed from right to left by people in front of him.

I think the investigators already know if this is a hoax and time will tell and truth will out.

There must be an awful lot of self hatred with all of these hoaxes committed by gays in order to get this sort of attention. If it is a hoax, I hope charges are filed and she is made to pay for the cost of the investigation. Andgiven hard time, not just some 5150 weekend stay, she can complete that in her prison ‘curriculum’.

Fair point, but rape isn't about sexual attraction, it's about power and control.

The more I think about it, the more this story stinks. Sooner or later, the police will release a "Never Mind" statement, very quietly. Nothing will ever be done to those who perpetrated the hoax.

But all people will remember is that a bunch of haters (probably right-wing, and I bet that they voted for Bush) assaulted a poor defenseless lesbian.

And the meme gets furthered just a little bit more.....

Lesbians are extremely brutal to each other. One of my female students came to my office to explain why she was dropping out, and I noticed that her face was swollen and bruised. Without saying anything I assumed her boyfriend had done this to her, but as she went on I learned that it was her lesbian lover that had pummeled the hell out of her.

Did the cops interview neighbors to see if they saw or heard anything? I read her inside basement wall was spray-painted. Why go down to the basement? Why not the living room? Why did she go to a neighbor’s and not call the cops herself? Did these guys say anything to her? Did they arrive by car or on foot? How did they know she lived there? Did she live alone? Was she in bed sleeping at the time? Was anything taken? Was it forced entry? Was she naked at the time they broke in or did they remove her clothes and, if so, where were they found?

I would love to see the police report on this.

I would be surprised if law enforcement hadn’t asked every single one of these questions. Also, can anyone actually envision a gay hater sitting there carving “Dyke” and other slurs into her skin? Sounds like a movie, and a very bad one...

“Why go down to the basement? Why not the living room?”

Because if she had lit the fire on her living room floor, it would have spread quickly to the rest of the house. On a concrete basement floor, it wouldn’t.

Lincoln is a college town. This is likely the latest in a serial of hoax “hate crimes” committed against supposedly persecuted minorities. This one is different only in the extreme nature of the incident. Burning one’s own house is extreme. On the other hand, if it was a rental.....

What’s with these ignorant lesbos carving them selves trying for evermore attention? Guys have better things to do with their time than bother with some pervert. You just know this will eventually be exposed as a self-mutilation. But then, it will be a pity party for the lesbo because society does not accept her as normal. Society drove her to do this and we are all quilty. Oh, Please! This BS is getting old.

Agreed.

I hope law enforcement is swift in calling this out, and that she pays to the full extent of the law for her (or their) actions, and that all who attended said vigil are infuriated and embarrassed.

I normally wouldn’t judge this quickly, but this story was full of holes from the get go.
