Hate crime suspects use app to target gay community

"If convicted, the men could face life in prison." I sure hope that's what they get!

Re: Hate crime suspects use app to target gay community

What happened to these guys is one thing that I fear about meeting a guy from such an app. Is that unreasonable? Anyone else feel that way? I guess someone you meet at a bar or group could turn out to be a psycho too.

Re: Hate crime suspects use app to target gay community

I hope they get long sentences.

And I guess if you meet someone online you may not get to see their body language. So it increases the chance of them being a creep. But I definitely wouldn't meet anyone at my house if I'd never met them either!!

Re: Hate crime suspects use app to target gay community

Such stark displays of ignorance and willingness to go out of their way to do harm.

Idiotic and malicious, a dangerous combination. Let them never see the sunlight again.

They better get life.

If anyone uses the apps, please be careful. I highly recommend looking into your county laws for concealed weapons, and to make sure you have protection with you; even if it's just pepper spray or mace.

Re: Hate crime suspects use app to target gay community

I've been reading The Velvet Rage and it talks a lot about guys who have a lot of random sex and I keep thinking how can guys do that so easily and not fear for their safety. It's all so foreign to me. Besides the safety factor, how do guys so easily find an acceptable hookup to be enjoyable? It seems that my trust of others and criteria for guys I find appealing must be way off the chart or normal.
