    To me, this needs more info. Is the marine gay himself? That's an important issue. Gays call each other slurs all the time, just like blacks do. In that context, it's hardly a hate crime. Yeah, it was definitely assault, but the whole hate crime thing may be inaccurate.

    Just a thought.

    I'm almost certain that regardless of your own sexual orientation if you assault someone while yelling slurs like fa**ot it is still a hate crime.

    Thank you! Why do you need more information? He stood out in front of a gay bar yelling anti gay comments, beat the shit out of another human being for no reason at all other than he came out of the gay bar….seriously, what don't you get about this? I don't care if he's in front of a str8 bar, movie theater or Forever 21, the guy has issues if he's yelling gay slurs and attacking gay guys.
