Yet another gay man dead having been attacked – how many more need to die before we stand up to be counted?
@1 Agreed. We will probably here some comments from the anti-cruising brigade.. But whatever they say, it would be no excuse for this. And to the (probably) ´affronted homophobes´ who did this, you are murdering scum. This was at night on the common. If you do not like gays and gay sex, then stay away. There is no excuse whatsoever for you murdering another human being.
I really really hope they are found and brought to justice soon. There needs to be a clear message sent out that society will not tolerate this kind of homophobic violence and murder.
Theres hundreds out there dogging and in lovers lane they aren’t being beaten up. This is raw homophobia. I don’t give a phoo what other think about men that cruise they are NO different from any other human being out there looking for sex, they just prefer men.
The photo of this guy murdered it doesn’t look like his a real threat to anyone poor old sod.
Let us hope the police detectives in Southampton have read the 2007 Met police report commissioned from a lgbt advisory group in 2004 which examined how police handled the murders of ten gay persons. The findings highlighted how police prejudice hampered investigations into murders of gay persons.
Not forgetting the Stonewall report commissioned from you.gov into homophobic hate crime in the UK…or the Home Office report in 2005 in which it stated Homophobia was endemic throughout the UK police forces…precious little has really changed in police anti-gay attitudes, but the spin.
Faith in UK police regarding homophobic incidents…I have none!
My sincere sympathy to Nigel’s family and friends
