Four People Viciously Gay Bashed At The Legendary Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel

The legendary Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel located on Hollywood Boulevard which was and financed by a group including Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford and Louis B. Mayer, in 1927 has become a site where four people were injured in a savage gay bashing attack earlier this month.

 WeHo Confidential reports the victims were returning to their rooms at the hotel about 2 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 19 when they were attacked by a group of 10 people said to be gang members who started calling them”faggots,”

They began attacking one male and then threw the female of the group to the ground. Another male member of the five stepped in to pull the female away out and try to the other male victim, and he immediately sustained a blow to the head knocking him out. The attackers continued kicking the man in the head even after he had slumped to the ground, causing enormous cuts
and gashes on his face and body and resulting in a concussion.

In all four of the five people are said to have been injured — one so bad that he “awoke in a pool of blood.”

After the incident the group of five checked out of the hotel and pon checking out they requested a refund for being placed in such a terrifying situation in a place where people should expect to feel safe. The manager denied the refund, stating, “I’m the one who has to deal with your blood
all over the floor.”

The LAPD is investigating and has identified some of the gay-bashers thanks to surveillance video. The identified criminals are gang members from Oakland.

Baltimore Gang Leader Timothy Rawlings Sentenced To Life In Prision For Ordering A Hit And Murdering A Fellow Gang Member He Thought Was Gay (Video)

Timothy E. Rawlings Jr a Baltimore gang leader who ordered a hit on a member of his own gang whom he suspected of being gay was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without parole.

Baltimore County Circuit Judge Robert N. Dugan told him that the killing of Steven Parrish, for the sole reason that the victim showed signs of being homosexual, was “senseless, brutal, unprovoked, cold-blooded, premeditated murder.” Dugan said that Rawlings, as a leader of the so-called 92 Family Swans, affiliates of the Bloods, had “ordered this murder with the same casual attitude of someone walking into a fast-food restaurant and ordering one of the specials off the menu.”

Prosecutors said that Rawlings had demanded that two men kill Parrish after they discovered that he had exchanged salacious phone messages with another man. Rawlings believed that Parrish’s apparent homosexuality would “make the gang look weak,” prosecutors said.  Parrish, who was only 18 was about to graduate from high school, was stabbed and beaten, his head stomped and a red bandana left over his face as a sign of disrespect.

In a trial five months ago, Rawlings was found guilty of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and two hate crimes in the killing of Parrish on May 29, 2008. The life-without-parole term he received Tuesday is for the first charge, and he was given an additional life term on the conspiracy count. The two hate-crimes charges were merged into one and resulted in a 20-year sentence. All are to run concurrently.

Prison is too good for this animal.  I hope that everyday is hell for him on the inside.
