    This makes my blood boil, maybe we should flood the Claremore police phone line with calls about what they were going to do about the incident
    could also submitt email request here > http://www.claremorecity.com/forms.aspx?fid=43 I sent a request, they probably won't respond, but pressure and public opinion is a very powerful tool

    While there are always two sides to every story, I'm pretty vocal when it comes to gayrights and being treated just like everyone else.

    That's just aweful.


    You'd think we'd be past this considering everyone talks about how we, as a country, are so tolerant.


    I hope the poor kid gets some kind of comfort. Hopefully something gets done about this

    This is just another horrible, criminal incident that should pressure authorities into action against gay bashing and all other types of violence. Hopefully this young man will have full access to legal recourse and pursue charges against his attackers and even question authorities at that college on what they plan to do to prevent such violent attacks from happening again.

    Lots of members on this forum, strength in numbers, flood the dame phone lines with request for action. While my heart goes out for the the guy and I honestly pray that he gets some emotional help, in reality thats up to him and for guys like us to offer advice on where to look and how to get help, we can also put pressure on the local jerks to stepup and do the job they were hired to do
