Austin, TX Officials Express Concern About Anti-Gay Hate Crime


Members of Austin City Council and Equality Texas held a press conference yesterday to express concern about the recent hate crime targeting two gay softball players there, which I posted about earlier this week.

The Statesman reports: Council Members Randi Shade and Laura Morrison said that although they are confident police are dedicating the necessary resources to investigate the matter, hate crime remains a real and alarming concern. 'I have every reason to believe our Police Department will pursue this,' Shade said."

Police are still looking for the four men responsible for the attack.
