Cincinnati Man Beaten Unconscious and Robbed, FOX News Affiliate Leaves Out That Its A Gay Crime

 

Cincinnati, OH FOX news affiliate FOX19 is reporting that police are searching for three suspects accused of knocking a man unconscious with an iron before robbing him. But what they are not reporting that this is potentially a gay hate crime.

“According to authorities, the victim met the three men at Shooters, a bar located on Race Street downtown, on February 11th. From the bar, they all went back to the victim’s home to hang out and drink, sometime after 8 p.m.

That’s when the three suspects reportedly hit the victim in the back of the head several times with an iron. Police say the he attempted to fight them off but was knocked unconscious.

The three men then ransacked his apartment and took several items.”

The bar in question Shooters is a gay country and western bar, one of the few gay bars located in downtown Cininnati and one of the best known.

While it should be any surprise to no one that a FOX affiliate would straight-wash a news story the  fact is that  its a common problem in Cinci-nasty and other parts of the midwest.

If you don’t talk about gay people, they don’t exist.
