Prosecutor: Teen in gay attack left note -- Queer Lesbian Gay News -- Gay.com

The case of the man (and I use that term loosely) who attacked a gay bar outside of Boston and fled to the south, where he shot and killed a police officer, gets weirder and weirder.

For those of you who didn't hear about it, Jacob D. Robida walked into the Puzzle Lounge gay bar in the suburbs of Boston, asked if it was a gay bar, and when he was told that it was, started attacking the patrons with knives and gunshots.

And people still don't think we need hate crimes legislation.
