Matthew Shepard revisited after over a decade..This time, Scotland is the venue

After over a decade of the gruesome murder of Matthew Shepard in Wyoming, we are again faced with another horrifying murder of Stuart Walker from Ayrshire, Scotland.

A 28 years old gay man Stuart Walker was tied to a lamp post, brutally beaten up and then burnt to death. Whether burning is the cause of death, that has not been established yet.

Horror is all I feel after reading about the incidence. All other feelings of rage, anger, sadness, hopelessness might seep in later.

Reports of gays being jumped, beaten up, mugged, bullied, harassed are common all over the world. Gays being killed or executed are common in the Middle-east and Africa. But after Matthew Shepard I think this is the 2nd most gruesome act of hate-crime in the western world. In Shepard’s case, there was a chance, if he was found a little earlier, taken to the hospital a little sooner, he might have been saved, or maybe not. But still there was a chance… But in Walker’s case, the culprits left no room for that. His injuries are described as ‘horrific’ by the police. His scorched body was found at around 5 am in Caponacre industrial area, outskirts of town. He was on his way to attend his grandmother’s 80th birthday party.

Police are investigating the murder and trying to gather information from the neighbourhood and trying to gather any leads from the CCTV. Nothing has been disclosed yet.

Here’s to hope the perpetrators are caught sooner than later and brought to justice. Shepard’s parents forgave their son’s murderers. I am just hoping Walker’s family don’t go down the same road, instead see to it that the culprits get punished the harshest way possible.

RIP sweetheart.

So Much Hatred……!!!!!

I had a very clear idea what I am going to talk about in my blogs, but to start my first one, I needed a push. I might add, a big push. And this came from the below news that left me speechless.

What Mr. McCance wrote on facebook, if we are to believe that he meant every word of it, to me its the mindset of a murderer. Someone who has no qualms about people being killed or committing suicide or says, would enjoy a mass human destruction, is that much close to being a killer himself.

Every killer justifies their doing, no matter how bizarre they might seem to others. Mr. Clint McCance has a very strong reason…his hatred towards homosexuals.

He went on to apologize on CNN later and said how sorry he was.  Did he apologize because of the stink it caused, or does he really mean it.

What I think? He doesn’t mean a single word of the apology. What he wrote on facebook is what he believes and thinks is right and should happen. Over night, his entire belief cannot change. He is the same person. He would still have the same hatred embedded inside him. Only difference? He would be more careful, where he vents his anger, hatred next time.

If you have seen his interview with Anderson Cooper, you must have noticed that he repeatedly said, he had chosen the wrong WORDS.  So his concern was the choice of words and not the message he conveyed through them. That means, if he had chosen less hateful words, less stronger words, he would not have offered an apology. His entire apology was for all the wrong reasons. He never figured it out that it was not the choice of words but the message that was the point of discussion.

There are hundreds and thousands of McCances out there, who are not stupid like him to publicly slander us. In silence, they are hoping and praying that we should all die.

But the good thing is…… we are here to stay. They can pray and wish and hope all they want. We were always there, we will always be there. If they can’t deal with it…too bad.
