As police continue to investigate a possible antigay hate crime perpetrated by members of the Lambda Chi Alpha at the University of North Dakota, the father of the alleged victim, Dan Gisvold, has come forward to express his anger over the situation.
“To have four guys jump you, strip you of your clothes and your dignity, and then whip you with a belt like an animal — if that’s not a hate crime I don’t know what a hate crime is,” he told Nicole Johnson of local NBC affiliate KVLY.
“You’re going to run across people who are homophobic anywhere you go. At least there are some good people around that campus that night who were willing to step up,” he continued.
What does he want for those accused?
“What do I want to see happen? I’m a parent — you don’t want to know what I want to see happen to them.”
