    I'd withhold judgment on this case until collaborating evidence comes in. In all too many cases, such acts have been staged. It's sad, but such cases detract from real instances of homophobia and gay-bashing.


    Just today, from Delta Utah:

    July 1, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – The community is reacting today to the news that Delta man Rick Jones staged anti-gay hate crimes against him earlier this year.

    The Millard County Sheriff’s Office issued the statement yesterday that it had been actively and aggressively investigating a series of violent incidents alleged to have occurred in April and June of this year in Delta.

    “The investigation has come to an end today with the admission of Richard (Rick) L. Jones, Jr to having staged all of the incidents,” the press release said. “We are working with the Millard County Attorneys Office to determine the next step. We urge community members to continue to be supportive of the Jones family.”

    LOL! And they determined from the remains on the flagpole that the flag was cut down with manicure scissors.
