This is insane!
A 26-year-old gay man says he was the victim of a brutal hate crime early Sunday in Reno, Texas — a small town just east of Paris and about 100 miles northeast of Dallas.
Burke Burnett said he was at a private party at about 1 a.m. when four men suddenly attacked him, stabbing him at least twice with a broken beer bottle before throwing him onto a fire. His attackers yelled things like “pussy-ass faggot,” “gay bitch” and “cock-sucking punk,” Burnett said.
Burnett said it took 30 stitches to close stab wounds to his back and forearm, as well as a cut above his left eye. He also sustained second-degree burns and severe bruises.
“They knew I was gay,” Burnett said Monday. “I’m convinced they were trying to kill me.”
Jeff Sugg, interim chief of the Reno Police Department, released a statement Monday afternoon saying: “The Reno Police Department is currently investigating an aggravated assault that took place last weekend. The investigation is ongoing and additional information will be provided when available.”

I get so depressed when I read these things. Why do they hate us so much? It’s incomprehensible to me.
Know your surroundings. I hate fighting. I remember these two guys were name calling and I was very depressed because I was getting fat and my jeans looked like I was trying to squeeze a marsh mellow in to a piggy bank. I got called fat ass and I beat the shit out of the redneck bastards.
What people see in others they see in themselves. I hope the get caught and soon.
