This is a really awful story and these issues don’t get enough attention. This is one area where Michael Winerip of The Times used to turn in important work on the ed beat.

  1. Thanks for posting this story, Andy. We’ve got to learn to live with each other’s differences in peace–and to teach our children the same. Very tragic. — Alan Richard, SREB

  2. Thank you for bringing attention to this story. As sad as it is, it deserves attention. It is worth noting that when this crime originally occurred, several news organizations listed the victim as gay and that stated that this as a hate crime. However, soon afterwards, this portion of the story was deleted and sexual orientation was not mentioned at all. I am happy to see this has been corrected somewhat and this terrible tragedy has not gone unnoticed.
