Tennessee Man Beaten At His High School Reunion For Being Gay – Sometimes It Doesn’t Get Better

So much bad news today.

Shawn Farris of Franklin County, Tennessee was attacked and beaten over the weekend ay his High School reunion for that fact that he is gay.

Ironically, Shawn Farris, who is a flight attendant, started the group the “Flight Attendant Project” to help at-risk LGBT youth.

And of course the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is not going to investigate the incident the violence against Shawn as a hate crime. The are calling the case a simple assault

Its not “simple” when someone calls you a “faggot” and a “queer” and then beats you up you banjo playing, redneck, yokel Sheriff.

Its a HATE CRIME and should be dealt with as such Bubba.
