Most hate crimes perpetrated against gays are legit but every now and then thereâ€™s a bad apple in the basket. Well this time we have a big old flaming fruit in the mobile home. Back in July gay Floridian Christopher Robinsonâ€™s trailer had been torched and tagged with feel-good phrases like â€œDie fag.â€ And it wasnâ€™t a bunch of Germans labeling the front door to his place â€œThe fag.â€
The cops investigated the apparent hate crime but the trail led to Mr. Robinson himself. He’s fessed up to everything. No word on a motive just yet but all signs point to insurance fraud.
Still, you canâ€™t help but feel a little sympathy for the guy. If we lived in a trailer park somewhere between Orlando and Sarasota, weâ€™d want nothing more than seeing it all go up in a blaze of glory, too. Itâ€™s no way for a queer to live.
