Stonewall Inn’s Accused Gay Basher Matthew Francis Now Charged With Assaulting Homeless Man + Cops

Because douchebags will forever be douchebags, Matthew Francis — the 21-year-old Staten Island man who refused to apologize for allegedly gay bashing Benjamin Carver in Manhattan’s Stonewall Inn bathroom — was picked up by police Monday on new charges … of assaulting a homeless man and two cops. Free on $10k bail, Francis and fellow suspect Lattea Tate, 19, were allegedly selling drugs to the victim and ended up assaulting him instead. Cops picked up the intoxicated pair a few minutes later, where Francis proceeded to kick an officer after refusing to be handcuffed (he was pepper sprayed for it) and later punched an officer at the station, according to a police report. While Tate was RORd, Francis was held on $50k bail on assault, harassment and resisting arrest charges.

      Gee who could have seen this coming. At least he might actually be punished now, beacuse hitting cops will get way more attention from the courts than hitting fags or homeless people.

      @chpinnlr: Sadly, ur so right.

      this perp is trouble. He’s not just a homophobe, he’s an ahole. He sounds tough, so maybe he can handle his stint in prison (if he even goes there). But, it would be karmic if he was taught a lesson by people bigger and badder than him.

      If he gets time in prison, he better learn to enjoy anal sex.

      He’s not tough whatsoever. The way he was crying about not being labeled a homophobe, how he didn’t mean to attack the men in the Stonewall bar, and how he got his family to corroborate his story, showed me he is just another insecure bully with self-hate issues.

      25 years from now, Matthew will probably be preaching against homophobia as a reformed ex-basher and born-again christian. Maybe he’ll even write a book about it. Stop the hate, yo.

      I can’t think of a single gay basher who doesn’t have a criminal record otherwise. Gays like to pretend they’re always done by guys who just came back from church, when nothing could be further from the truth.

      @Harbo: what a lame joke. Prison rape is not funny. Enough already.
