Teenage Girls Try to Push Lesbian Peer Off Cliff to Her Death

Three teenage girls in Kentucky allegedly attacked Cheyenne Williams, a lesbian classmate, last Friday (coincidentally, the national Day of Silence) and tried to push her off a cliff. Johnson's mother says she was attacked because she's openly gay, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports:

Kentucky  "Those charged in the alleged attack — who attended Jackson County High School with Williams — are Ashley N. Sams, 18, of Annville; Corrine M. Schwab, 18 of Sandgap; and a 17-year-old girl. Her name and the charges against her have not been released because she is a juvenile. Williams said the three teens took her against her will to Flat Lick Falls, physically abused her and tried to push her off a cliff. Johnson said her daughter had the presence of mind to videotape the attack on her cell phone. 'There's proof on the video that this is a hate crime,' Johnson said. A hate crime is an offense motivated, in whole or in part, by bias based on race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or ethnicity/national origin, according to the FBI Web site."

The teens have been charged with attempted murder and kidnapping. Both have been released on $25,000 bond.

Johnson was able to defend herself from her attackers with a stick, the paper reports.

  5. Jail is the wrong place to be if you don't like lesbians.

    Is it me or are girls becoming more violent?

  6. I'm sure these girls come from a fine upstanding Christian home full of the highest values in the land, true Americans who are afraid of the moral decline of our nation brought on by the onslaught of the evil Gay Agenda being forced upon America. They were merely protecting themselves. Their God will show his wrath over their incarceration by making a volcano erupt in Iceland.

  9. Dawnell, they look like they've already been hit by books. LOL If all is true I hope they are severely punished, but I'm hesitant to say put 'em away for life, they're so young...

  11. wow, it's like the evil straight girl version of Heavenly Creatures. We could call the made for Lifetime TV movie: Devil's Bitches. I mean, c'mon. Look at them. Really I'd like to see the people who raised them to be this homophobic and homicidal. And then punish them.

  12. So I see the headline "Teenage Girls Try to Push Lesbian Peer Off Cliff to Her Death" and I immediately think "The South" even before reading the article (And I grew up in the South for some thirty-something years of my life).

    So now it's Kentucky. It's like they're currently having some sort of "who can be the biggest homophobic/sociopathic a**hole" contest.

  16. Its not just you, girls are becoming more violent. There've been arguments in delinquency for a while that the reasons why girls are underreported in crime statistics is that they were previously more supervised than boys...and that in a world where all parents work more and have less gendered expectations for girls, they'll have more opportunity to behave like other teenagers (and be more delinquent). Yay. :(

  21. @Stephen - Really? Eastern KY is dominated by the second largest mountain chain on the continent. Can you name it?

  22. The victim's last name is Williams. Her mother's last name is Johnson. The two names seem to have gotten mixed up in this summary of the case.

  23. If I looked like those ugly hags I'd want to push someone off a cliff too, 'cept it'd probbly be my parents for passing such hideous genes down.

  24. The first thing I thought of was the girl who was attacked last year by a group of her peers, and it was caught by a cell phone. That is one of the best inventions for catching crimes that the perpetrators would otherwise walk. These three are truly evil, the perp walk with the families to court will tell a lot about them.

    As the South breeding this kind of hate, lets not forget one of the worse, Matt Shepard was out west. And my home town has the trial of the two latino men who were beaten, one man to death, because they were walking arm and arm. They were straight brothers, but they were called anti gay and anti latin slurs.
