Ohio ‘Fags Are Freaks’ Anti-Gay Arson – 8 Horses Killed

gay blog, gay news, hate crime, morgan county, horses, arsonBrent Whitehouse awoke late at night to find his barn engulfed in flames. Someone had spray fainted “Fags are freaks” on his property before setting it ablaze. Whitehouse could hear his eight horses inside kicking as they burned alive, but he wasn’t able to rescue them before the barn collapsed in flames.

WHIZ reports:

Those who know Brent believe this was a hate crime, explicit words relating to his sexuality were spray painted in large white letters on the side of the barn before the fire was started.

“They obviously don’t know him very well, because he’s a sweet-hearted person and how he lives his lifestyle is nobody’s business but his own,” said Friend Bobbie Nelson.

“Whatever his sexual orientation was it had nothing to do with him as a person and to take it out on these innocent horses was beyond any fathom of what anybody should ever do to anybody,” said Yvette Yeadon.

Fas are freaks, but arsonists are apparently A-OK.

Authorities have no leads at this time, save the anti-gay epithets spray-painted across the tin walls that survived the inferno. Anyone with information relating to the case is asked to please call the Morgan County Sheriff or Fire Marshal.

Ugh. Such a deliberate, waste of life. Our thoughts go out to Mr. Whitehouse, and we hope that his tormentor is brought to justice.

    It almost makes one want to believe in hell, because you know that there would be a special place in it for the monster who did this…

    This is absolutely appalling. Hate crimes are one thing, but animal cruelty in ADDITION to hate crimes is another. I hope they know EXACTLY what they did to these poor creatures.

    This person who burnt the barn and killed the horses is a danger to society. It’s people like him/her that make me almost believe in the death penalty.

    A special level of hell is reserved for the perpetrator(s) of this crime.

  • the deaths of the horses means one of two things. the fire was an accident and only mean to scare Whitehouse (still not expectable) or was set on purpose and it that is true than if this person could so easily set fire to 8 horses and burn them ALIVE it is not that large of a jump to killing a person. Profilers have let it be known that most killers start with small animals before moving on to larger kills.

    Please let there be a hell…..

  • I feel so much sadness inside when i read things like this. Notice how you dont hear of the LGBT community doing these crimes. Love is louder.
