Damian Furtch Pummeled By Gay Bashers Outside NYC McDonald’s

This is Damian Furtch. He is 26. At 4:30am on Sunday morning, heading home from his restaurant job, he stopped at a McDonald’s in New York City’s West Village. He was followed out of the eatery by two men who crossed the street, approached him, and screamed, “You fucking faggot.” The men then proceeded to punch him in the face. Damien required four stitches. His nose needed to be re-broken and re-set. Luckily, he was able to flee his attackers and get to a hospital. The police were called, a report was filed, and it including information about the gay slurs used against him in the attack. Let’s hope there is some McDonald’s or ATM security footage sitting in a video bay right now that will identify his assailants. [via]
