Gay soldiers beaten in possible hate crime | NewsFirst5.com | Colorado Springs | Pueblo |

Their car a bloody mess, a group of Fort Carson soldiers and their friends try to pick up the pieces after a seemingly senseless hate crime early Saturday morning at the Albertacos restaurant in northeastern Colorado Springs.

Chris, one of the victims and a gay soldier, asked that we hide his identity.

Especially since the first people to go on the attack were not white conservatives like liberals always love pointing out are the bigoted ones. It's a fact that blacks and Hispanics are far more anti-homosexual than white people are.

Black + Gay, two protected victim classes opposed in one crime.
I say the judge just nullifies the whole incident.

It is quite common for soldiers and even marines to get beat up by black youth. Maybe our "boys" are not so tough as we think they are behind their advanced military hardware. In the real world, outside of bombing mud brick houses, they are not as tough as our poor, disadvantaged black men of color walking the streets.

The "primary aggressor" was .....5'5"......135lbs?

How does a "primary aggressor" that small get to be the "primary aggressor?"

Yes, he'd have to have all 6 of his friends because i'm quite sure that runt wouldn't have gotten anywhere on his own. (At least not against me he wouldn't). I'd sling his lil ass around like a ragdoll and not think twice about it.

The "don't tell" part was there for a reason.
