Gay Teen's Home Vandalized In Hate Crime

A gay Florida teen returned home with his boyfriend last week to find it covered in hate-filled red graffiti - both inside and outside of the house. The vandalism included a swastika on the ceiling of his living room. Police are investigating the incident, which targeted 18-year-old Jesse Jeffers, as a hate crime. 

The Pensacola News Journal reports:

The vandalism, which happened between when Jeffers left and returned to his home, was deemed a hate crime by the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office, because it targets Jeffers’ lifestyle and sexual orientation. There are only a few hate-crime cases reported each year in Santa Rosa, Haines said, calling them a rare occurrence.

The vandals spray-painted a pair of women’s breasts on the trailer’s exterior. Near the door, several derogatory words were spelled out, along with the phrase “God don’t love you,” with a heart taking the place of the word “love.”

Inside, his drapes, fish tank and front room were also tagged, along with another large swastika painted on his ceiling.

No arrests have yet been made in the case.

  1. I think it's better before blaming him or even thinking he did it, because this theory of blaming the victim because others did that before it's not good at all.

    I hope this will solved the best way for the guy

  2. Could we have another Secession and let Florida go? Who needs the gay-hating, so-called Christians who don[t have a clue what Jesus was all about. Was He the one who said Hate thy neighbor, as thyself? Tht must be the way they translate it.

  4. This is a horrible story. Maybe if his home had a home security system things might have gone different. I use Protect America and highly recommend them. Be safe, Jesse.
