13-Year-Old Arrested for Attack on Cleveland Gay Bar, Possibly its Patrons: VIDEO


Last week we reported on a gay man beaten by a group of youth outside the Cocktails Lounge gay bar in Cleveland. Jared Fox was sliced by his glasses, his eardrum ruptured, and his face bloodied and bruised.

CocktailsNow, a 13-year-old boy is under arrest after the bar released surveillance video showing a large group of youths targeting the bar by throwing rocks, some the size of small canteloupes, over the fence at its patrons, FOX8 reports:

“I kicked open the gate and I ran out when I ran out all the kids scattered,” [bar patron Ric] Scardino said.
He said two kids came back and confronted him.

“The one with the white shirt had a broom in his hand and he told me what he was gonna do with; he was gonna beat me with the broom and what he was gonna do to me with the broom afterwards,” he said.
That’s when Scardino pulled out his mace.

“They thought this was a gun. They saw the black and they said the (bleep)’s got a gun and they took off running,” he said.

Police are trying to determine if the 13-year-old was involved in both incidents. However, Scardino says there have been at least three other attacks.

  2. Savages. Savage subculture. And as a society we just look the other way and pretend everything will be OK.

    You obviously didn't read the entire post. And adding "That's so gay" at the end of your comment doesn't make you look funny or clever. Nice try though.

  5. LOL. Ankerich, you're like a pimple on the ass of society.

  6. Would someone tell the idiot Mark Glaze that he should be fighting for the right of gay people to arm and protect themselves, not sucking Bloomberg's wallet and working against the Second Amendment.

    BTW, this is the same Mark Glaze who worked for the Human Rights Campaign. So the HRC is at least sympathetic to gun grabbers in addition to supporting amnesty for the illegal aliens in this country. This is the same HRC which runs employment ads with thinly veiled racial preferences in them.

    Do not give the HRC any more money.
    Do not give the HRC any more money.
    Do not give the HRC any more money.
    Do not give the HRC any more money.
    Do not give the HRC any more money.

  7. "....So the HRC is at least sympathetic to gun grabbers in addition to supporting amnesty for the illegal aliens in this country..."

    Because someone once worked for a group, you NOW hang that person's personal behavior on THAT group? Post-Facto?

    For you to make that GIGANTIC LEAP from a to z is not only disingenuous, but referentially points out your own Moronic lunacy.

    Go away LCR Troll. You are wrong again.

  8. This is why I always get nervous when I see groups of teenagers out late at night and try to avoid them. The stupid herd mentality of kids that age in large groups, combined with a culture of violence, poorly enforced or nonexistent curfew laws and bad parenting only increase the likelihood of things like this happening.

  9. we do need to show these a-holes that we are not going to lie down and take this. I get pissed when I'm walking down the street and thugs yell out "Fags" from a car and throw a bottle to a group of gay guys on the street and I'm the only one that yells back and takes down license plate #s.If we have the rep. of silently accepting abuse that is what we will get. We need to fight back and do something - either politically and/or with our might.

  10. I agree with Dredmond on this. Gays need to fight back, if possible. Can you imagine the shock on some gay basher's face when a gun is pointed at him?

  11. All of us bleeps should have guns.

  12. Even though the 2 recent gaybashings in Cleveland were by a number of black youths, DO NOT criticize them anyone. Do not! They are the victims. And it's all society's fault. So just pretend this didn't happen and keep quiet.

    (Sorry, I'm talking about what WILL happen, not what SHOULD happen).

  13. James - The HRC's support for gun grabbing and illegal aliens was/is not limited to one person.

    The HRC is a front for "Progressive" politics.

  14. racist closet cases demand guns!

    why? you wimps never leave your houses anyway.

  15. I remember when the finalists for the gay games were Cleveland and Boston...and they announced CLEVELAND as the winner.

    Are you serious? Thousands of athletes from all over the world and we end up showcasing America with...CLEVELAND?

    I'm not saying Boston is perfect, but it's cleaner, safer, and more progressive at least. Mass. is also the first state in the USA to legalize gay marriage and it's home to much of our country's founding history.

    They don't even allow civil unions in Ohio, sadly.

    Hey, how about next time we have the Gay Games in Compton or in the middle of South Dakota.

    Yeah, great choice, guys.

  16. Yes Kiwi we're all racist closet cases you tiresome little bipolaroid twit.

  17. Have the gay games in Toronto. Frozen queens stay fresh longer.

    Posted by: Hagatha | Sep 10, 2013 3:16:24 PM

  18. no. you're not all. but you are. and your various sock-puppet aliases.

    guns guns guns. which you don't need. because your parents don't let you go out and socialize with other gays. oh well. not my life. :D

  19. The video posted by Fox8 simply doesn't work.

    Most of those silly "The Ring"-looking circle videos don't work for me.
