A sad tale of a Nebraska native attacked after leaving Metropolitan, a gay bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where a gent named Dave was “kicked and punched” by more than one assailant “while calling him a ‘faggot’ the whole time.” Dave ended up in the hospital having “reconstructive surgery on the right side of his face as he had many broken bones,” relays Free Williamsburg; he’s since been released. But what did the stupid attackers do?
Stole his credit card and used it to purchase a subway Metrocard, “so there may be a photo of them.” Indeed.
It would be upsetting to know Dave got jumped for a couple of $2.50 train fares. But thieves intent on jacking your goods probably aren’t going to stop there, which means the credit card may have been used again later that night, raising more possibility of identifying his attackers. No word on whether NYPD is involved, or if the incident was even reported to them.
This is terrible. And again illustrates that even in a big gay city, you are still a target, hated and can’t let your guard down.
@scott ny’er: If only non-celebrities could carry a handgun in NYC…
@Baxter: I would.
Don’t accuse me of blaming the victim here, please, because that’s so not what I’m saying. But it’s a good reminder to everyone visiting NYC, especially from safer places like Nebraska, that violent homophobes are here and ready to get ya. Be tough and be careful.
@Chargers: New York City actually has a lower violent crime rate than Omaha. And while you’re less likely to get murdered in Lincoln, you’re more likely to be raped or assaulted there.
Great news, kick those nasty faggots back in the closet. They do enough damage as it is, all gay people do is cause trouble.
If the bashers could have only waited for Folsom fair, they would have gotten a lot more money for kicking drunk gay people and stealing their money while calling them names.
