Watch: Woman Gets 6 Months Jail, Five Years Probation for New Year's Attack on Lesbian in Buffalo, NY

Grover

You may recall the eye-slashing attack on Lindsay Harmon, by 21-year-old Suzanne Grover outside a nightclub in Buffalo, New York last New Year's Eve. Harmon has suffered some permanent vision loss due to the assault.

Harmon believed she was attacked because of her sexual orientation, but a Grand Jury rejected hate crime charges in the case, and the judge did not get the full trial he felt the case merited.

Watch Grover apologize, and the judge scold her, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Eh, Maybe she learned her lesson. Punishment means nothing if rehabilitation doesn't happen.

  2. I get so tired of the fake remorse. What she is really saying is that she is sorry she got caught and is being punished for harming someone who the the religious right, and the bigots say is not even human. I hope her life is ruined for what she did.

  3. A mere wrist-slapping. She should have gotten the five years straight up.

  4. Civil court...sue her for damages and emotional trauma.....take her house, her care...everything she has...and put her on the street.

  6. @Speedieg, Haha, the eye for an eye approach is funny on a story about eye slashes.

  8. Dyed in the wool conformist yet sociopathic hetero, big crocodile tears, thinks her actions just happened. What else is new? Let her drown in her own freaking gene pool as she flushes her life down the drain like every other piece of hetero trash. Just keep it away from us, you freak.

  10. Ugh...had the perpetrator been a minority the jury would have thrown the book at her. All she had to do was flash her big 'pretty' eyes, drop some tears, and play the "reformed" damsel-in-distress and *voila* sentence reduction.

  11. Guys,

    5 years probation is actually pretty stiff and not unusual for cases like this. She didn't get a slap on the wrist. If she's a bonfide hard-ass, she'll just end up violating parole and end up back in prison.

  12. ugh, "both women hurting"? Seriously?

    Also, I love how she apologized for "what happened"... what about "I'm sorry for WHAT I DID"? Take some responsibility, please.

  13. This happens all the time now.

    What good do Hate crime Laws do if they are not APPLIED affirmatively by the authorities? No Good!

  14. did she ever explain WHY she did it?

    Posted by: rob | Nov 30, 2010 2:19:18 AM


  15. Chris Browne said the same thing -
    "I'm sorry for What Happened."
    Not 'what I did' or 'The harm I caused you' but what 'happened'.....like the victim just happened to get her eye slashed.
