‘Straight, White Male’ Gay Bashed + Hospitalized By Fellow Student

Next time Ross Richardson wants to throw away his entire elite education and his future, trying adding “you dirty spic” or something equally terrible. Because now that he called a fellow George Washington University senior a “fucking fag” while beating him up, Richardson is on the hook for assault with significant bodily injury as a hate crime. Collected by police on Sunday at the school’s Ivory Tower, where he lives and where the alleged assault took place, Richardson apparently never even met the man he attacked, according to the unidentified victim, who spent a couple days in the hospital recovering from head trauma and brain bleeding. Also: The victim says he is a “a straight, white male.”

University Police Department officer Matthew Knight found the victim sitting on the ground with two witnesses when he arrived on scene shortly before midnight, according to the documents. One witness saw Richardson kick the victim in the stomach several times while the victim was on the ground, according to the documents. Another witness saw Richardson push the victim against a wall while punching him and calling him “fag” and “motherfucker” multiple times. The victim fell to the ground and Richardson punched him and walked away, but returned and kicked him again, according to the documents.

And just when the school was giving us warm fuzzies by implementing gender-neutral housing.
