    ROT in jail that’s all he deserved and those like him period!

  2. The situatiion in Africa is a tradgedy for GLTBI people. We all need to do what we can to assist these brave citizens of their countries.

  3. Thank goodness, justice has prevailed.

    I really despair for humanity sometimes,

    We must all remember the suffering our gay friends/brothers and sisters are subjected to in Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia.

    My thoughts are with you.

  4. I’m also a little disappointed that this story has garnered 3 replies.

    This is a desperate situation that requires support from the LGBT community across the globe. Let’s stand up and condemn anti gay hate crime!

  5. Let me guess, the animal who murdered this beautiful young gay man is an anti-gay Christian who wants to kill all LGBT people. These anti-gay Christian terrorist must be stopped and put in prison to make the world a safe place for us all.

    My hart and thoughts go to the family of Thapelo Makuthle.
    When will this sickness stop, the killing of people just because we are trans is so wrong.
    Do we Trans torment people no?
    Do we Trans beat up people no?
    Do we Trans smash up people’s cars when there are people still in them no?
    Do we Trans throw people off cliffs no.?
    Do we Trans hammer people to death no?
    Do we Trans bludgeon people to death no?
    Do we Trans beat people to death with a baseball bat no?
    Do we Trans shoot people no?
    Do we Trans stone people to death no?
    Do we Trans hang people on?
    Do we Trans tell people that we are going to brake in to people’s houses?
    Rape them and burn them no?
    So WHY? Are we, we do nothing to you we treat you with RESPECT
    All we want is the same..
