Slain Scottish Bartender Beaten, Set On Fire In Possible Hate Crime


The body of bartender Stuart Walker, 28, was found Saturday morning following his savage murder in the town of Cumnock, Scotland. Police say the victim was tied to a lamppost, brutally beaten and set on fire, possibly because he was openly gay. “Stuart was a gay man and this will be one of the things that is looked at, but by no means the only thing,” a police insider told the Scottish Sun. An update from the Daily Record says the victim might have been sexually assaulted before he was killed.

In their grief, Walker’s friends and family are crying out for retribution: “The people who did this to our Stuart had better emigrate to another country,” said one of the victim’s relatives. “They have ripped our family apart.” A campaign has begun on Facebook to reinstitute hanging to punish the perpetrators of this heinous act. “And Walker’s former coworker Kazza Sutherland told the Telegraph, “Hopefully justice will be served and… those who did this go to Hell.”

We’re pretty sure there’s a deluxe suite in Hades waiting for the monsters responsible.

      I thought burning people at the stake went out with belief in witches.

      It was just on the news over here (Scotland) and they said that they don’t believe it was a homophobic attack, and that it may have been someone he was meeting up with, and the evidence pointed to him knowing the attacker.

      It’s a horrible murder, and it’s terrible that it happened, but I really don’t believe it’s considered a “gay martyr” case here. I just hope whoever did it is caught and send to prison.

      @JayKay: Why don’t you go jump off a bridge, you coldblooded bastard?

      Based on your comment it seems like it would be one small step for you and one large leap forward for humanity.

      Police reports now say that he wasn’t tied to a lamppost. Even so, this was a vicious, disgustingly evil crime.

      Kenny, get a grip. What about Matthew Shepherd and others? American savages? The whole country should be bombed? You’re an idiot.

      My heart goes out to Stuart Walker’s family and friends. Completely mindless and heartless behavior. I do hope that justice will be served and that some sense of peace will happen for Stuart. RIP

      I feel pretty confident @Kenny‘s comment was intended to ridicule people who say such things about Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

      If I were the police, then I would start by looking at any neo nazi or skin head groups in the area.

      FTFA: “The people who did this to our Stuart had better emigrate to another country,” said one of the victim’s relatives.

      Perhaps Scotland will “compassionately” extradite another brutal murderer to Libya.

      I hear it’s nice this time of year.

      @the crustybastard:

      Releasing a prisoner on compassionate grounds is an important part of Scots Law. Just because other countries and justice systems don’t recognise it doesn’t make it invalid. Compassion is a sign of maturity. Revenge is not. If this was the states, he’d probably be on death row. Nuff sed.

      If you are gay, you should learn self defense. If you are an ally, you should learn self defense. You all know the stuff heteros do to other heteros that is pure evil, much less what they do to non-heteros. That hasn’t changed in thousands of years, so – gay or ally – learn to defend yourself and you make the world a safer place.

      @Riker:

      No, Scotland is most definately not an island. It does contain a fair few islands, but the predominant section with the most landmass and population is quite firmly anchored to a larger island containing both England and Wales.
