A-List‘s Taylor Garrett Gets Punched, His Car Vandalized, Becomes Delusional

Gay Christian Republican/A-List Dallas cast member Taylor Garrett filed a police report on Friday claiming that a 6′ 2″, 200-pound bearded man in a baseball cap punched him in the face and scratched “Fuck Couther” into the side of his car. The bearded guy probably meant to scratch “Fuck Coulter” into Garrett’s car because of Garrett’s association with demon she-beast Ann Coulter.

Getting your ass kicked by an illiterate vandal blows.

At least Garrett didn’t wait four days to file a police report like he did when someone allegedly threw a rock through his window for his GOP leanings. This time he also posted an image of his bloodied ear onto Twitter.

A more detailed timeline of the broken window fiasco has emerged, with mention of a second rock. Laura Martin, LGBT liaison officer for the Dallas Police Department said, “I wouldn’t have any reason to think that [the first attack] didn’t happen the way [Garrett]’s presented it.”

Meanwhile, in response to the second attack, Garrett said, “The Democrats want me to live on their plantation as their slave, because I’m a gay person. And I refuse to do that.”

So, the white Republican who paid to have his balls electrocuted on cable television is now comparing himself to the likes of Frederick Douglass? That’s a crime in and of itself.

      Who cares about this poor excuse for a gay person? Really, can’t you bring our attention to someone more worthy of a blog post?

      “Those who questioned the veracity of Garrett’s first alleged harassment might want to read a more detailed timeline of the broken window fiasco with mention of a second rock that most LGBT blogs failed to mention.”

      And? I’m not sure the question so much is whether it happened but by whom?

      Why once again is this blog always ready to attack people who fight for gay rights and defend people who seem to not?

      The statement by the police of “Laura Martin, LGBT liaison officer for the Dallas Police Garret himself gave two different versions of the event, then claimed he hadn’t filed, THEN claimed he had but that his name wasn’t used etc…

      He now seems to want to do the typical GOP thing from the last few years and paint himself as the victim, just like the Mormons, and National Organization for Marriage do.

      He talks about living on a plantation…and yet he raises money for people that want to take gay rights away. In other words, he is working to support the efforts of people who do not want him to have civil rights. If that isn’t living on the plantation than I don’t know what is.

      He can play the “Boo Hoo, meanie democrats are picking on me” all he wants, but the fact is, he is raising money to aide in the attack on gay civil rights. He is the aggressor and the bully.

      Although I completely and whole-heartedly disagree with his political leanings, I understand Garrett’s stance regarding the peer pressure within mainstream US LGBT community. This article’s impact is much more about general attitudes within the LGBT community than it is a statement on Garrett’s unfortunate interactions with violence. It seems as though only a particular kind of diversity is allowed within dominant US LGBT communities. Issues surrounding gender and gender attitudes, the T in “our” acronym, Queer People of Color, (neo-)colonialism, religious affiliation, and much much more – are *heavily* regulated within this community to the point of exclusion.

      I appreciate Queerty for pointing us to stories that unpack these assumptions and illustrate how the very mechanisms with which the US LGBT community feels neglected and pushed aside are being utilized within the same community for the same purposes.

      Ah, the political left, which prides itself on being tolerant of all things, until it comes to someone whom they find intolerant.

      The hypocrisy of the left is, as usual, mind-blowing here. It’s truly difficult to comprehend that a fucked-up faction of the gay community is actually cheering on an instance of gay-bashing, simply because you disagree with the man’s politics. Are you even listening to yourselves? So far you’ve called him a little prick, an aggressor and a bully, and a poor excuse for a gay person. And I’m sure much more colorful insults will follow as the mean girls of the gay left extend their claws.

      But before you wish pain, misery and death on this guy because he (GASP!) had a conversation with Ann Coulter, chew on this: If Matthew Shephard had been a Republican, would you be making the same juvenile accusations against him? Would his death have been warranted, and even cheered by you? Because as far as I can see, they both are victims of violent morons who disagreed with them. And you want to know something else? If violent acts continue agianst Taylor Garrett and he ends up with more than a broken window and a bloody ear, it’s you guys who the world will turn to and ask, “How could you do something like this to one of your own?” And your response will be . . . “Because he was a fan of Ann Coulters!” ???

      @Ray: “Protecting his own safety” by beating someone up who donated to a cause you don’t like? I see. Well, with that twisted sense of logic it would likewise be self-defense to assassinate anyone with whom you disagree, because, ya know, they might do something political that I don’t like. Like entire church organizations, or the NRA, or NOM. Just wipe ‘em all out in self-defense, is that it?

      Points:

      In the Daily Caller interview Garrett states he was punched in the eye. The police report states nose. Suppossedly he was punched so hard he fell to the ground but neither his eyes or nose is swollen and he scraped himself in the upper middle portion of the ear. Did he fall to earth head first?

      The plantation line has been used by Chris R Barron of GOProud in the past

      2 Days before THIS incident Barron wrote an article for the same Daily Caller that broke the story called “The Gay Gestapo” talking about the hateful and vilent left.

      The day after the incident. Neither Garret, LaSalvia, OR Barron tweeted anything about it until well after The Daily caller picked it up and the PR machine was in motion.

      IF it did happen (and the jury is still out on that) its bad but on a general term vioilence should NEVER be used. But people get beat up for being a douchebag everyday in America. So this really is not HUGE news either way.

      Funny thing is, you freak out on here when ANYBODY disagrees with you, and yet now are talking about how intolerant democratic gays are. Nice try hypocrite.

      And lastly….If somebody is trying to harm you, attack you, attack your loved ones, that isn’t “Diversity”, that is an enemy.

      He is raising money for people with opinions similar to Rick Santorum. People who would gladly see gays thrown in jail.

      Saying that we need that type of “Diversity” is like telling the National Organization for Women that they need to allow more rapists to become members.

      @Cam: As usual, your sense of logic is stunningly irrational. You’re stating that it’s perfectly acceptable to physically attack someone and send them to the hospital, as long as it’s perceived he donates money to an organization that, as you put it, is “trying to harm you, attack you, attack your loved ones”, when in fact these are people who simply don’t want to see us get a marriage license. And your answer is violence. Wow. Let’s hope those people don’t become as “enlightened” as you and decide violence is the best way to go.

      @Ray: Hmm, that’s blatant anti-social behavior, dude (and that doesn’t mean “unsociable” — look it up). I’m stunned and somewhat disturbed by your lack of humanity, but I suppose that’s likely the reason for all this anger on your part. I can’t help but wonder why you’re such a broken man, and who it was that hurt you so badly to make you this way.

      With regards to the actual story, if this is not a publicity stunt designed to make people feel sorry for him, then it’s despicable. Violence is never the answer. We’re gay, people, and that means we have wit, we have the power of ascerbic ridicule and we have, by and large, better education than this!

      That said, in today’s media-whore-saturated world full of publicity stunts and showy ‘events’ that wind up being staged for money because people will buy anything if it’s sold by a ‘celebrity’ like Snooki or these A-List guys, I will refrain from being too sympathetic to a man who actively works to elect people who would like to see him, if not dead, then at least silenced forever, except when they need his money.

      And his extremely poor comparison of LGBT Democratic voters to being ‘on the plantation’ would have a lot more weigh behind it if he wasn’t such an Auntie Tom house slave..

      I’ve come to hate gays, and I am one! Is it any wonder that straight people are so uncomfortable with us? It’s one thing to express an opinion – even to be assertive, but the level of plain rudeness and intolerance and hypocricy on this site is simply staggering.

      Before every starts blaming straights for their behaviour, perhaps we need to take a look inwards and see if we aren’t maybe giving them damned good reason to hate us, because based on what I’ve seen here, I’m ashamed to be associated with some of you.

      If true, this is wrong. But I do not believe it to be true. Something just doesn’t add up. Recently here in our town we had a mini-scandal when a black woman reported to police that someone scratched the N word into her car. It turned out it was her, getting attention. This happens a lot.

      @Politically Incorrect Thug: “these are people who simply don’t want to see us get a marriage license.”

      Come on you know this is intellectually dishonest, there is much more to the conservative anti-gay agenda then just opposition to gay marriage, many conservatives have talked about and proposed a wide variety of anti-gay legislation. I mean just in the past few months we have had to deal with the following.

      Tennessee “don’t say gay” bill
      NH gay marriage repeal effort that 60% of the state opposes
      Proposed NC constitutional ban on ANY recognition of same-sex relationships
      Multiple Republican candidates promising that they will reinstate DADT, not to mention many attempts by GOP politicians to stall or hijack DADT repeal
      Michican GOP’s wonderful pro-bullying bill
      Opposition to any anti-bullying bill that explicitly protects LGBT kids
      Support for sodomy laws by Republican presidential candidates (yes, Rick Santorum did this just a couple weeks ago)
      Continued opposition to ENDA

      Conservatives oppose ANY law or legislation that will help LGBT people, just 8 years ago many of them opposed the Lawrence vs Texas ruling and the only reason they still aren’t doing so now (except for Rick Santorum) is that even their thick skulls can now comprehend that it’s a dead issue. They will continue to support any anti-gay legislation that has a chance in hell of passing until we remove the last bigot from office, that’s just reality.

PIT has drunk the Kool-Aid that lets him overlook reality as long as his taxes don’t go up and he can rip off his workers.

      I marched in the Village back in 1968 and I’m one of the faceless people who fought the police at the Stonewall Inn.
      We will only stop the bullying by raising our voices together.
      The rights we seek will only come if we fight together, the rights we have will only be taken away if we cannot work together.

      Scratching “Fuck Coulter” on his car is no evidence that his basher was gay and Democrat. It could very well be a heterosexual homophobe who didn’t like to see Coulter hanging out with this guy and decided to bash him.

      It’s just weird that he is being so quick in blaming all of the “gay left” for this when there’s no evidence of that. Just because lots of gay people disapprove of his political views that’s no proof that they physically bashed him. If there’s people actually inciting violence against gay conservatives, please share some links. I have never seen Joe My God has never incited violence, if he has please provide a link to that.

      No one should be bashed, period. That said, Taylor should stop pointing fingers on presumably innocent people as that is not cool either.

      If it was the national Republican Party that he was raiseing money for, I wouldn’t have a problem with that. However, it’s the Republican Party of Texas that he is raising money for. That party has openly said that they believe Gays are pedophiles and believe that “the states should be allowed to decide whether or not to criminalize sodomy”, that was said within the last year or 2. That party would love to see us get locked up. When it comes to locking us up just for being who we are, it’s no longer a civil rights issue, it’s a human rights issue.

      The person who did it probably WAS a liberal gay. How many straight people, especially homophobic ones, would know who this guy even is? Aside from the fact that most gays are liberal, there is also the anti-Coulter message.

      But anyway, that’s not the point. This person was violently attacked because of his sexuality and political affiliation, which is absolutely wrong no matter what the circumstances. Even if he were a member of Communist Party USA it would be just as wrong. The fact that some of you are saying that it is okay to beat down (or even kill) someone with whom you disagree. is fucked up beyond belief. You are supporting the idea of genocide.

      I’ll repeat that one more time for emphasis: you are supporting genocide.

      You should be ashamed of yourselves.

      As an aside, it is entirely possible to be a member of a political party, even to raise money for them, and not agree with their entire platform. I’m a registered member of the New York State GOP, and I absolutely disagree with some of my party’s planks. My political views are slightly right of center, not far right like the ones you see on TV. I work to help elect BETTER Republicans than the ones we have now. I donate to people who can change the party, at least at the local and state levels, to something more in line with my views. When the 2012 state senate campaigns roll out, i’m going to be sending as much as I can reasonably afford, split between the six Republicans who voted for marriage equality. My own state senator, despite my lobbying efforts, voted no on the issue. I’m actively looking through my district trying to find a better Republican to run against him in a primary.

      So, being a Republican is nothing to be ashamed of, and committing an act of violence against someone because of political affiliation is wrong and should be absolutely condemned. There is zero wiggle room there.

      There’s bashing someone because they’re gay — and that being the end of it. It’s quite another thing to bash someone because of something they’ve done. And given the tone of the “Fuck Coulter” thing — I’d wager it was another gay person that hit him. That means this isn’t a ‘hate crime’. This is a fight between 2 gay people. There’s a difference.

      Is a gay Republican any worse than a gay Democrat? Obviously the Dems are generally LGBT supportive these days (took ‘em long enough) but alternative parties such as the Greens and Peace & Freedom Party is 100% supportive of equality while most Dems are supportive until it comes to marriage.

      Tea Party and Occupy people need to band together to vote out the corporately controlled 2party system.

      If we can elect a black President and openly gay candidates when people thought that would never happen then we can elect an alternative party.

      Next, at least this guy is somewhat politically active even if it is misguided with the evil GOP. Most LGBTs I know are apathetic even Post Prop 8. They’d rather party then have some fucking courage and go out and stand up to homophobes like I do.

      Lastly, the A List is shallow as fuck. It’s bad enough mainstream media never shows courageous LGBT people doing good things. The A List is the glorification of dumbed down, shallow, materialistic, social hierarchy obsessed bullshit.

      Blood splatter indicates otherwise. Blood would flow down onto the side and back of his shirt, behind his sternocleidomastoid. Gravity does not magically, drop around onto the front of his shirt. The shoulder of his wife-beater is relatively blood-free. Gravity may be a bitch (or a theory to Republicans); but, she is consistent.

      My issue isn’t what he says happened to him.

      My issue is that he made a similar claim before and the story fell apart. First he claimed that he hadn’t talked to police. Then when people questioned why he said he had. Then the police didn’t have a record of it so he claimed that they didn’t take his name when he reported it.

      One time he was interviewed he said the rock when all the way through into his apt. another interview it only broke an outside section and didn’t come in etc…

      He also released the story to coincide with the show. It was obviously a set up. And now this story has shades of the same. I believe this guy as much as I believe Kim Kardashian claiming her wedding wasn’t a shame ratings stunt.

      The little boy who cries “wolf”!

      The first time he cried wolf, it was pretty apparent it was a contrived publicity stunt. A paper note tied to a rock, thrown through a window, thrown through closed slated-blinds, thrown onto a sisal rugs, and yet not one tear nor frayed edge. Yeah, that was pretty fake.

      Here, I do have a question: Garret himself says that he was assaulted by being punched “in the face.” His own photo clearly shows that he has a bloodied ear but was not punched in the face — no cuts, no bruises, no black eyes.

      I also question the scratching on the car. Garret is out in public attending a party. Someone is supposedly also out in public taking the time to scratch in large neat letters and correctly spell Coulter’s name? I smell a rat, another publicity stunt.

      Can’t hardly go anywhere anymore without some camera taking your picture. I wonder whether there is footage, showing an assault or a fake?

I read someone referring to this as an act of GENOCIDE; however, Genocide refers to the “the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious, or national group” none of which applies in this case. Funny how the writer has turned the paradigm of genocide on it’s head by claiming that those who are calling for the elimination and disenfranchisement of an entire group of people, the “gays”, are the ones who need protection(?) and are somehow the victims of Genocide(?) because their liberty to discriminate and suppress is being called into question. God forbid the suppressed minority fight back! I’ve heard the right play fast and loose with language. We live in the age of 1984’s double talk, whereby tricks of language and rhetoric has allowed the wolves to cloak themselves in the garb of the lamb.

      As a black man in American raised by two Democrats who both grew up on welfare and worked there way out of the system. Who raised me to work hard and know where I came from I do not feel sorry for this over privaleged gay republican. If my parents who worked their asses of can still pay their taxes and not bitch and still want their children to work hard and give back to the community.;So that others might have the same chance then why the hell should I feel sorry for a fame whore in reality television raising money for people to work against everything my parents worked for me to be able to have.
      Hell as a black gay man I’ve had to fight race issues amoung gay men. Now I have to fight the same battle all over again with gay white republicans, no fucking thank you. Let his little ass learn what it means to fight. Getting beat up is the price you pay for raising money to take peoples rights away. Shame on LOGO for this shitty reality show.
      Shallow vain white gays with money selling us our own lifestyle. We used to be inclusive and the most understand of communities but with the LOG CABIN REPUBLICANS and their like we have become a fractured group unable to get out of the gate.
      To me a Gay Repbulican equals a slave telling Master that the other slaves were escaping off the plantation. Not every one is a Blond BLOW UP DOLL. I’m tired of having liberal throw in my face like it’s a bad word. Conservative should be a bad word. All I see with that word is repression and molestation.

You’re so very proud of your “firsts.” You’d rather have a “first black” or a “first muslim” or a “first gay” president run the country into the ground than you would have a decent Republican cut the debt that Obama has sent through the roof.

      @Riker: If there was an actual attack, then yes, of course, you are correct that everyone should endorse arresting and convicting those who assault others. The socio-political and sexual preferences of the victim are unimportant — an assault on one is an assault on the community too.

      Your presumption, Riker, that the culprit “WAS” a liberal gay is lacking in logic. Coulter is better known among conservatives than liberal and straight folk than LGBT.

      Occam’s Razor: the more simple explanation is more likely the correct answer:

      Garrett attends a party, leaves party to go to car, finds a vandal mid process of scratching in large clear and properly spelled letters FUCK COULTER, is attached by being “punched in the face”, makes a police report, no other witnesses (geez, I thought these so-called A-Listers would have some hangers-on), photo shows bloodied ear and no punch in face

      OR

      Publicity stunt artist who gets called out for faking a rock being thrown through his apartment window, attempt another publicity stunt. The alleged vandal takes the time, in public, to clearly and boldly scratch FUCK COULTER, including spelling the name correctly, within walking distance to some A-List attending party, and there are no witnesses?

      @Mike in Asheville: I choose to believe that this person would not purposefully file a false report (which is a very serious crime) just for a publicity stunt. Therefore, I have to assume it is real, or at least mostly real.

      What we have here is a bunch of armchair forensics experts who got everything the know from CSI analyzing the picture. I actually work in the medical field and spend a great deal of time around blood, including dried blood. The color of the blood is reasonable, assuming the photo was taken not long after the incident. Others commented on the splatter. If the victim was walking around after the attack, droplets of blood could have fallen from his earlobe onto the shirt in that pattern.

      Still others draw attention to the fact that he said he was “punched in the face”, not the ear. Well, considering that the ears are connected to the face, and the victim is not known for being an English major, that’s reasonable too.

      So for all the people in here claiming that it isn’t possible because of X discrepancy that you noticed, the attack story certainly is plausible. Barring any serious evidence to the contrary, we have to assume that one of our own was gay bashed.

      I don’t think people realize just how hateful the LGBT Community is towards those of us who aren’t liberal. Hell, at Chicago’s Pride Parade, the Log Cabin Republicans float is boo’ed every year, as I’m sure they are at every other Pride Event around the country. This not only saddens but disgusts me that we, as a community, would look down upon anyone for such a trivial issue.

      I myself identify as a LCR, although I am registered as a Democrat and have yet to vote for a Republican (as President, have for other state / local offices) and I cannot tell you how much hate I have received from my friends and the local LGBT Community itself.

      For some reason, we are so caught up in “One Issue Voting”. Yes, I realize that Civil Rights are of big importance, as they should be, but sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture. Decide when and where to fight your battles, sometimes it’s much more beneficial to not just look at a candidate and vote based on your sexual orientation.

      I don’t know if this, or previous, attacks are real but fact of the matter is, it would not surprise me if they were. People are so blind by a single issue that it truly makes them no different than the people they claim to oppose for being “One Issue Voters” against Civil Rights, Same-Sex Marriage, etc.

      There’s no reason to think the attack didn’t happen. There’s the scrawling (because it can’t be called handwriting) on the car. There’s his bloody ear. For the real paranoiacs out there: the blood on his shirt indicates he was hit from the side, which he couldn’t have done by himself. He wouldn’t have that expression on his face if he did it either. By “face” he probably means head, although it’s possible he was also punched in the face and it didn’t leave a mark. This seems unlikely, however, given the brutishness of his attacker.

      This idea that gay people should “look at the bigger picture” and not vote based on our civil rights is a complete absurdity. A conversation about the differences in policy between the two parties is pointless while one party is still so hell-bent on our destruction. Yes, I know there are some good people in the GOP who are trying to change this, but they are on the fringes and dare not “cross the line” by actually calling out their fellow Republicans on their bigotry (just look at Taylor and his relationship with Ann Coulter). The GOP is MANY cycles away from looking anything like the Tory Party in England, unfortunately.

      We as a community have every right to have a knee-jerk reaction to anything Republican because we are so used to being demonized by these people. You gay Republicans out there need to realize that this is where the larger LGBT community is coming from. It is not some Democratic conspiracy to keep gay people on the Dem “plantation”.

      That being said, I am becoming increasingly uncomfortable with this situation in regards to Taylor Garrett. The rock situation could or could not have happened (I’m still inclined to think it didn’t). But once violence enters the picture, we as a community need to step back and learn all the facts before we call him a liar outright. If you’ve seen the show, he definitely has more than a few screws loose and could very well being lying. But we’re just posters on a forum, not medical examiners and detectives. Let these people do their work and reveal all facts before any judgement is made.

Although they chase after the psychopathic cynicism, they never express it naturally or convincingly.

What I find more offensive is that he has become some sort of cause celebre for the right and is being portrayed as a “slave” and a victim on par with matthew shepard as well as last week’s victim of homophobia, incidentally from Texas, was beaten and burned because he was born gay. In regards to your challenge of honesty about HATE: It seems to me that you are the one who needs to look in the mirror – what you claim to despise in others seems to be the very currency in which you deal wholesale. How else is one to understand someone whose violent nature is alluded to in his moniker “POLITICALLY INCORRECT THUG”?

Garrett himself posted the pictures of his evidence: photo of a perfectly intact unmarred paper note; photo of the broken pane of glass and undamaged closed blinds; picture of the jagged rock where it landed on the sisal rug.

      @Riker: Hey Riker, you should also check the link above “filed a police report” and it takes you to a copy of the report. be sure to check out the second page.

      So, you point out that had Garret walked around after being hit, blood droplets from his ear could leave the pattern displayed on his shirt. But according to the police report, Garrett said he was punched in the face, specifically in the nose, and that caused his nose to bleed. The power of the punch to the nose knocked Garrett to the ground where his left shoulder and left ear hit the cement causing more bleeding from the ear.

      Riker, please explain how the blood splatter from the nose bleed does not exist yet the blood splatter from the ear does. Also, and again according to Garrett’s own statement to the police, where is there any kind of flesh damage to Garrett’s nose, eyes, lips. Per Garrett, the force of the closed fist punch to his nose knocked him to the ground. That much force and no blood, no swelling, no bruising?

      Also, interesting, is that Garrett says he was returning to his car after leaving a party. The place on the attack, though, was at a public storage warehouse in what looks like a light industry/warehousing district (Google satellite). Strange place for such a targeted attack — gay man with Ann Coulter lovesickness — warehouse parking lot at 10:30 on the Friday night?

      Yes, gays are ALWAYS faking hate crimes (Shawn Bennett, Kieran Daly, that one in Utah- forget his name, Quinn Matney, Phillip Nelson in Oklahoma)…but this one doesn’t count! It’s part of the TV show..!!!

      @Inis Magrath: FYI, people who support Republicans aren’t all anti-LGBT, just as people who vote Democrat aren’t all pro-LGBT. It’s definitely a two-way street, and if you believe otherwise, then you haven’t had your eyes open. A gay Republican isn’t an oxymoron, he’s just someone who believes his country has a priority over his private sex life. It’s not a difficult equation.

      I realize getting punched in the face hurts, but living in the ultra-conservative world he is actively working to bring about will hurt much more than a set of knuckles to the temple.

      Kids taken away from gay parents.
      Being arrested for having sex in your own bedroom.
      Having to wait in a lobby while your partner dies alone in a hospital bed.
      Gay kids getting beaten at school with no support system to turn to.

      All signs point to this being a staged PR stunt. The Dallas Voice says he wouldn’t let police take photos or get fingerprints. There’s your red flag right there! If he was attacked by someone this violent, shouldn’t he want the police to catch them? Unless, of course, he knows the person who did it. Or he did it himself.

So, yes, he is pretty dumb. Also I’m pretty sure the original police report was filed by someone other than him. And in this instance, he wouldn’t let police collect evidence from the crime scene, which is pretty freaking suspicious.

      @cynch: Do you know Ann Coulter personally? No, i’m willing to bet you don’t. Neither do I (though I did speak to her for about thirty seconds at a fundraiser once). Garrett actually does know her, and probably knows more about what’s in her heart than you or I do. The public face many celebrities put on is just a mask; only a few people know them for what they really are.

      I’m not saying she definitely doesn’t hate gays, and god knows she’s said some awful things. Her brand of humor is very sardonic and not always funny. However, someone who knows Coulter might be in a better position to say what her real opinions are.

      As far as not letting the police collect evidence, i’m not surprised. Victims of violent crime often just want the ordeal to be over, so they can go home and pull the blankets over their heads and wait until they come to grips with it. Being a victim of crime doesn’t always make a person think clearly.

      @CBRad: Back in the 90s, I believe, there was a man who was savagely beaten (and later died in a Fort Collins hospital) for being gay. The boy had his fair share of personal problems- including addiction, and many conservative pundits tried to blame the crime on drugs instead of anti-gay bias.
      I think his name was Matthew Shepard.

      If you are gullible enough to believe the (most likely incredibly anti-gay) SLC cop’s story that Dane Hall was *curb stomped* over a little 420 “… well…..(I got a bridge in Brooklyn for sale).”

Having been involved in ‘illegal’ activity (on both sides of the law) here — I’ll tell you this: If you rip off a pot dealer (as that douchebag posted, he was arrested for pot at one point), you get cut off. You DON’T get fucking beaten and curbed. Let alone outside of a bar with potential witnesses. Violent retribution is reserved for large, typically expensive quantities of the hard stuff. People grow pounds of pot here for kicks. It’s not exactly ‘Scarface’ in good ol’ Salt Lake”.

      @Henry: Wrong Henry, click the first link in the post “file a police report” and read both pages of the report. Garrett told the police he was struck by a man 6″2″ 240 lbs, closed fist to his nose so hard it knocked him to the ground, where his ear was rubbed/cut against the cement.

      While Garrett’s photo shows the blood splatter from his ear, there is no apparent damage of any kind to his face. IT WAS GARRETT WHO TOLD THE POLICE THE PUNCH TO HIS NOSE CAUSED BLEEDING.

      Per the police report, the alleged attack happened in the parking lot of a public storage warehouse. Pretty remarkable that someone who knows who Garrett is, knows of his relationship with Ann Coulter, happened to be strolling by a public storage warehouse parking lot on a Friday night at 10:20, and whammo, there is the target of bottled up hate?

      THIS WAS ALL FAKED JUST LIKE THE MAGIC PAPER NOTE FAKE JOB LAST MONTH.

      Garrett is making a mockery of real hate, real gay bashings, real bullying to boost his mediocre celebrity of a mediocre show on a mediocre network.

      @CBRad: Perhaps you have misread my comments or confused them with another’s. My repeated points is that this is as fake as can be. The first fake by Garrett was the rock thrown through his window claim. There Garrett posted pictures of the scene that show that what he claimed could not have happened: jagged brick sized rock, broken window pane, undamaged window blinds, sisal rug — all items/things/conditions that would have left the paper note tied to the rock tattered and worn; yet the paper note was in mint condition.

      Second event, Garrett told the police he was struck by the closed fist of a 6’2″ 240lbs man to the nose, bloodied, knocking him to the ground where the ear was cut and torn, also bloodied. Garrett refuses the police to take pictures, finder prints, any evidence (not sure why he bothered to call the police since he was unwilling to let them investigate the “crime”). The picture Garrett posts of his bloodied ear and clothes shows absolutely no evidence that he was struck in the nose — no blood as he claimed to the police, no bruising, no black eyes, etc. I was mugged once and my experience is that strikes to the face that knock you down leave plenty of bruises, cut and mars. Garrett’s only damage was to his ear that was hurt in the fall to the ground.

      I say he is a big fat liar. That Crystal Mangum and Quinn Matney are also big fat liars is not proof that Garrett is a liar too. Garrett’s lies are his own, and pretty obvious.

I seen him in person when this occured. He was messed up for a while, causing him to drop his classes. Educate before judging. P.s. he fights for gay rights and is in the lgbt community standing for a declaration, while he fulfills his dreams. It made hin stronger. Grow up people. WE KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE SAD THING IS THIS IS LEFT OPEN. After the first hate crime Phillip faced in tulsa ok he was attacked again. Police reports were made. The case remains shelved. It is sad! SO I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THIS BUT THE PHILLIP NELSON CASE WAS TRUE! I WITNESSED HIM BEING ATTACKED ON MANY ACCOUNTS. HE FIGHTS BACK!

      I don’t care what your beliefs are, the problem happens to be that he was beaten and vandalized. Hate crime or not it is horrible. I am a gay man and i can understand how hard it can be for us sometimes to not immediately say whats on our minds and take time to think but, honestly it doesn’t matter his views or the type of person he is. No one deserves violence like this. Try to not think about how you feel towards him as a more public figure and try to think of him as a human being, gay or straight, republican or democrat or even something in the middle. It honestly doesn’t matter. If it does to you, then maybe you need to take some time to think of what kind of person you are.
      I proudly wish him the best and support him in his legal problems regardless of what anyone thinks of him, his religion, his political affiliation, or even his world views.
      Again, no person deserves that treatment, period.
