Waiter Stabbed Because He Was Gay In Santa Maria, CA

A waiter who worked at a Denny’s was stabbed early Thursday morning after Curtis Martin, 24 ,(pictured left and looking every bit like a skinhead) knocked on the closed Santa Maria restaurant window and asked to use the restroom. He was let in and approached a table of employees and asked the victim if he was gay.

After the victim said he was gay, Martin began stabbing him in the neck and throat.using a knife he had brought with him,

Martin ran to his vehicle and was seen fleeing the scene westbound on Main Street, police said. His vehicle was located a short time later and Martin was arrested and booked for attempted murder and committing a hate crime

The victim was transported to Marian Medical Center by ambulance for treatment. The injuries were not life-threatening and he’s expected to fully recover.

What a crappy insane country we live in and the longer they drag out granting us full and equal rights there will be more hatred and violence from the other side.
