    Killed for being gay in the US...it still happens

    A little premature to be making that conclusion, my dear Paul. He may have met his end at the hands of a random car jacker, or a gay trick he picked up, a psycho gay lover, a political assassination, or a thousand other possibilities. I think we must withhold judgment until we have more facts, yes?

    It's not really a judgement - It's just a hunch. But it's a very probable hunch. icon_wink.gif

    Fair enough. Let's see how it plays out.

    Too much Mississippi Burning. But I jumped to the same conclusion.

    Keep us posted in the thread when more news comes out. Stuff like this doesn't always make it north across the border.

    I'm guessing that this one is going to end up more on the sad and embarrassing side, less on the inflammatory political side - something like a lover's quarrel or a trick gone wrong.

    Although there is a chance it could have been because of his sexuality for all you know he screwed the wrong people over. Even in the before mentioned case this is a rare isolated incident.
