Jeana Terry says the children, all siblings under the age of 16 who live across the street, had taunted her and her partner with anti-gay slurs for months. Last Tuesday, the oldest daughter and her brother ran up to Terry while she was on her front porch and began punching and kicking her. Others soon joined in.
When an 11-year-old boy struck Terry in the face, she told KAIT-TV Channel 8, “I felt the rip. I thought it was water but now I know it was blood.”
Terry says she and her girlfriend have tried to talk to the juveniles’ dad about the harassment and slurs. I was like ‘Enough is about enough.”
While the official police report backs Terry’s side of the story, the children’s mother, Nancy Harris, claims it was the other way around: “My daughter was on the phone and talking to and friend and she assumed they were calling her gay,” said Harris. “She ran off the porch, tried to attack [my daughter] and she defended herself. I have two other kids that came to their sister’s rescue trying to break up the fight. They took three juveniles into custody. We don’t care what race, sexuality, color or what you are, we love everybody.”
Oh, well, if you say your kids are precious little angels then we’ll just take your word for it, lady.
