Three Long Island Teens Charged in Attack on Gay Classmate


Three Long island teens were charged today in a Tuesday afternoon attack in Hicksville, NY in which they beat a 14-year-old classmate on a school bus while yelling anti-gay slurs.

The Long Island Press reports:

"David Spencer, 18, of North Valley Stream and Chase Morrison, 16, of Lakeview, were each charged with assault and aggravated harassment. A third suspect, 16-year-old Roy Wilson of Baldwin, was also charged with assault but did not make disparaging remarks regarding the victim’s sexual orientation, police said. The assault allegedly took place on a bus leaving Nassau BOCES at 2:15 p.m. The victim suffered a visible bruise on his forearm and substantial pain throughout his body as a result of being stomped and kicked on his arms, legs, stomach and thigh, police said. On Wednesday morning, while on the bus to Nassau BOCES in Hicksville, Spencer and Morrison again made disparaging remarks to the victim regarding his sexual orientation while slapping the victim in the head and face, police added."

NBC New York reports that the older teens were charged as adults.

Pathetic and disgraceful!

  3. Like I said before, the next one is Paladino's fault.

    This is the next one.

  4. Now before someone goes all O'Reilly and says that ALL African Americans are homophobic or anti-gay remember our president is..... Oh wait....NM

  5. @Raven

    NM? Our president is Nelson Mandela?

    - ENDA signed.

    - The ban on gays in the military lifted.

    - Gay couples allowed to immigrate as an a family.

    - And perhaps most impressive of all, the inclusion of "sexual orientation" in the Bill of Rights.

    We should be so lucky.

  6. This new assault is one more visible toxic mushroom growing at the surface of American society out of the widespread and aggressive mycelium of ignorance and homophobia in the rotten evangelical underground. President Obama is not part of the solution, but a promotor of the problem, not of the solution, as long as he acts as he does and lets his advisors (i.e. Valerie Jarrett) continue to fertilize that malignant soil with ignorant and unreflected words ("lifestyle" and "choice").

  7. I can't see the video (no streaming video here), but ... the fuck was the bus driver doing during all this?

  8. This is racism. Black people aren't homophobic, and moreso, can't be. The savage was noble! White men ruined everything! LOL! I hate most liberals.

  9. Yeah, Joe B., like these goons listen to Paladino.

  10. @Tank

    Other than Raven's comment, naw, it ain't racism yet although they act like white soccer holligans in Serbia.

    I do have to say that I really do agree with Disgusted American's comment though...well, for the most part; although, again, they do act very much like many other teenage men out to prove their manhood.

  11. This has NOTHING to do with politics, NADA, these little fucks couldn't tell you who Carl Paladino was if their life depended on it. They are fucking animals, period, full stop. There are parts of Long Island, unfortunately, that these ultra violent, dysfunctional animals from the city have moved to and ghettoized.

    And the comments about the civil rights movement, blacks, and so on makes me speechless. How FUCKING naive can some people be? Apparently a lot.

    Finally, South Africa may have some very liberal laws, but the violence level is mega bad. Apparently international 'progressives' severely pressured the S.A. government to pass gay rights legislation and so on, but dropped the ball when it came to effectively combating completely out of control everyday crime, like they do in the U.S. My rights are meaningless if we have widespread lawlessness in the streets. I wish there was some way to force every comfortable middle class (usually white!) 'progressive' to live in the belly of the beast, housing projects, for at least one year with no weekend or holiday reprieve. We'll see how 'progressive' they are when their time is up.

  12. Roman from Switzerland STFU! Switzerland is responsible for massive money laundering of the world's dictators, tyrants, organized crime syndicates, etc, Switzerland has A LOT of blood on it's hands going back at least to the Nazis.

    Switzerland didn't even give women the right to vote until 1972!

  13. Honestly, I would love to one day read the comments section of this site and be surprised.

    Posted by: sugarrhill | Oct 14, 2010 4:10:06 PM

  14. Yep, knew that good ol' racism was coming.

    Posted by: Chitown Kev | Oct 14, 2010 4:18:16 PM

  15. Ratbastard, you are absolutely right! But, is that a reason to defend how Obama is (not) fighting for the LGBT community?

    Posted by: Roman Bolliger, Switzerland | Oct 14, 2010 4:24:20 PM

  16. Maybe some of those homophobic WHITE Yankee playoff fans would buy these boys some tickets.

    Lord knows they'd fit right in there, right?

    Posted by: Chitown Kev | Oct 14, 2010 4:26:56 PM

  17. Hicksville, NY? How appropriate.

    Posted by: Paul R | Oct 14, 2010 4:28:24 PM

  18. @Chitown Kev. Yeah, it's too bad the rest of us can't live in denial.

    @Raven. The President is black and also doesn't care about gays. Is that a surprise?

    Posted by: K1 | Oct 14, 2010 4:28:42 PM

  19. These kids were taught to hate or at best not taught to appreciate diversity and the struggle of other minorities and so you get thug punks. throw the pigs in jail.

  20. Good to see that sarcasm doesn't escape you good folks /snark

    So as our good friends in the GOP would put it "sorry if you found my comment offensive and I can't possibly be a ______ because I have a friend who is ____"

    Posted by: Raven | Oct 14, 2010 7:17:57 PM

  21. Zero discipline = acts like this.

    We reap what we sow at home and in school.
