hate crime, alive and well

I just read keynoter's post about her 15 year old daughter's assault today. I'm so sad, and so angry. I know it's only scumbag kids (scumbag girls), but they're capable of making people too scared to go out, of sapping the happiness out of everything, of putting people in hospital.

What would you do? Any suggestions for Ellen on the best way to protect everyone?

It's horrible to read something like this. I am not at all shocked to hear of anyone being verbally or physically assaulted around the greater Dublin area but the gay bashing makes it worse.

When I lived on the North Circular (after college) I got hit with an egg and a questionable rock type object walking home from the bus. Nice
