All I’m going on is this report, from KPAX, which I picked up via its twitter feed.

The man told Missoula police that he was assaulted by close to 10 individuals behind Red’s Bar. He said he doesn’t remember much of what happened, but does recall hearing anti-homosexual remarks while he was being attacked.

During the assault, some personal items were taken from the victim, so police are calling the incident a strong-arm robbery.

The police are “calling the incident a strong-arm robbery”? Sure sounds like a hate crime to me.

Don’t we have The Matthew Shepard Act signed into law?

Because if all that haters have to do is steal something while they’re committing their hate crime to avoid the penalties associated with committing a hate crime, well, boy…..what to say about that.

Years ago Missoula experienced a round of assaults that came with anti-gay overtones. Many felt there was a downplaying by the police of the nature of the crimes.

Let’s hope that isn’t happening again. Missoula Police should be investigating all aspects of this crime as presented by the victim.
