    FBI Looks Into Gay Beating As Possible Hate Crime, Marines Charged
    Posted: 3:18 pm EDT June 14, 2010

    SAVANNAH, Ga. -- The FBI has launched a preliminary investigation into whether the beating of a gay Savannah man warrants federal charges as a hate crime.

    Two U.S. Marines stationed in South Carolina have been charged with battery in the beating of 26-year-old Kieran Daly. Police found him unconcious on a downtown street corner early Saturday.

    FBI spokesman Steve Emmett said Monday the agency is looking into the case along with federal prosecutors.

    Savannah police say witnesses told them one of the Marines had punched Daly in the back of the head. They said the suspects accused Daly of winking at them.

    The Marines -- Keil Cronauer and Christopher Stanzel -- told police they were trying to get away from a gay man who was harassing them. Both were arrested and later released to military police.

    Note:

    How hard could it be to get away from one man. When you are trained in combat! Seriously!

    Agree. As retired US military, I can handle myself pretty well to this day. I would expect some Active Duty Marines to be even better at protecting themselves.

    I remain puzzled by the charge against the Marines, being merely misdemeanor assault. That's what's used when you shove somebody on the shoulder.

    This victim was knocked unconscious, had to be given CPR, and had 2 seizures as a result. He's still in the hospital. And this is a misdemeanor complaint?

    I'm waiting for the charges to be upgraded. I think I'll have a long wait...

    Cops see hate crime in woman's mutilation

    The incident has been classified as a hate crime because a derogatory term for lesbians was painted inside the home, said Officer Katie Flood, a spokeswoman for the Lincoln Police Department.
