Eight Horses Die After Anti-Gay Arsonist Torches Ohio Barn

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

A vicious homophobe in Morgan County, OH spray painted “fags are freaks” on a fence surrounding a barn, and then torched the barn killing the eight horses who were inside. The equine victims of this lunatic included seven adult horses and a foul.

The attack took place in the town of McConnelsville just after 11:30 p.m. on Sunday. Owner Brent Whitehouse said he awoke to discover the barn engulfed in flames and immediately called 911, but it was too late.

According to people familiar with the horses, the foal was only a-week-old and one of the other horses was expected to give birth any day now.

    This is just heartbreaking. How can there be so many ignorant people in America? Homophobia, xenophobia, everything is just becoming more prevalent. God help this country.

  2. Greg Equality Lengkong says:

    This is such a profound act of violence and one of the worst I’ve heard about in a long time. Arson and animal cruelty fueled by homophobia. A sick, sick person.

    It’s a shame the owner of these horses didn’t have a rifle.

    When he saw the person(s) who spray painted these words on his fence, he could’ve done the world a service and probably saved the horses by shooting the person in the head.

    In the USA, you have the right to protect your property. In many states, the “shoot first” rule prevails.

    Whoever did this needs to be captured and soon. He’s dangerous. This type of crime is an example of extreme rage and fits the personality profile of someone who would throw a Molotov cocktail into a gay bar for maximum destruction.

    This is sick and makes me furious. Whoever did this deserves the death penalty.

    This is vicious and depraved.

    I don’t know much about Ohio but on the link you have to the Southern Poverty Law Center, 32 known hate groups exist in Ohio. I have no knowledge if the person who carried out these hate crimes has a connection to any of these 32 groups, but I hope law enforcement looks into this.

    Connecting hate crimes to hate groups is a no brainer but law enforcement often goes deaf, dumb and blind on such matters presumably because many cops belong to the type of groups Southern Poverty Law Center tracts.

    Ohio has some of the best, and some of the worst, people anywhere. Unfortunately the scum have been in the ascendancy lately. Hopefully Czar Kashitch I has a lot of people rethinking these “values” types, because what was done to those horses is more or less what one would expect from these shitbags as an attention-grabber.

  8. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    The person or persons responsible for this atrocity should be nailed against a barn and the owner of the horses handed a torch to burn the structure down.

    I just don’t have any patience for this type of behavior. Oh, poor loser from a broken family, or daddy loved my older brother more, or my girlfriend left me for my best friend so I’m going to lash out and harass gay people and kill their animals.

    Fuck ’em. My patience for these gutter-feeders is spent.

    How tragic and terribly nauseating. I can only hope the perpetrators are arrested immediately and prosecuted to the fullest.
