    But your honor, I hit the Puerto Rican because I had 'raggaeton panic.'

    Hmmm, yeah doesn't sound right when you put it with any lifestyle really.

    or quoted somewhere.

    Nice.

    Very surprising for conservative MI courts. Most judges are appointed by republicans.

    well at least a majority of the judges had common sense.

    The offender is either a huge homophobe who went home with the victim just to beat him up, or he's a huge closet case who was curious to have sex with the victim...and THEN got struck with "gay panic" when he couldn't go through with it.

    anyway the irony is... either way, he'll probably end up having sex with a dude in prison icon_twisted.gif

    You have to wonder if these guys who brutally attach a Gay male to "protect" themselves ever consider the fact that they will go to jail for a long time for this affence and will probably be raped repeatedly during that time peroid.
    If they don't like the idea of buttsex they probably shouldn't put themselves in a position to have it freaquently. icon_rolleyes.gif

    If you have 'gay' panic, then why do you go home with a gay guy? There are a lot of details that are left out of both of their stories! I am glad with the courts ruling!!
