Mississippi Gay Couple Lives In Fear After Hate Crime Attacks – VIDEO

Dustin Tasso and Matt James, a gay couple from Toomsuba, Mississippi have become targets of anti- gay abuse and hate crimes in thier neighborhood which have included their home being broken into, windows of their car being bashed in, and the word “fags” being spray-painted on  the street in front of their house.

The couple has decided to stand up and speak out about the harassment that they are suffering in thier rural town and to point out that they are not alone.

“We just felt like there needed to be something done,” says James “because it’s not just us. This stuff happens everyday, and I mean it’s not noticed or recognized and there’s got to be some kind of justice.”

  1. Will local law enforcement follow protocol? They have allowed this type of behavior before by claiming “boys will be boys”. They got caught in the southern part of the state after evidence surfaced they claim they didn’t know existed. Wish these guys the best of luck. Documentation is everything as they move forward. http://www.deguyz.webs.com
