Assault on Gay Man 'Not Hate Crime,' VPD Say
Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
Media reported that the man was "Openly Gay" as he was assaulted by 3 Indo-Canadian men. Indo meaning a race from India or East Asia, certainly if anything knows anything about Hate Crimes and Racism it would be these three.
Everyone has the right to walk the streets unmolested regardless who they are, pelting a man with eggs and throwing a beer bottle sounds like they didn't agree with this man's openly Gay lifestyle.
Perhaps it is all a cultural misunderstanding, as these three Indo Canadian men thought Mr. Gay was hungry and decided to toss him a few eggs and a beer for a late night nosh! Or perhaps these three men live under a Cultural Rock not realising they were walking in the GAY DISTRICT???
You really have to ask yourself if this was an Openly Gay Indo Canadian man assaulted by three White Guys would things be different.
In the recent past, we have had small outbreaks of racial discrimination here in Vangroovy, where ethnic Vote sucking Politicians, Media, Grief Counsellors, Indo Organizations readily pick up the Banner of Racism, accuse those offenders of Religion, Cultural or Lifestyle Bashing" in a wild Protest demanding Justice.
One Wonders if it were "Three White Guys" assaulting a "Indo Gay Man" how fast the Wheels of Justice would turn in a "Vengeance and Spend every last Taxpayer Cent" in finding these Three Offenders, perhaps even hiring more Police for the Hate Crime Unit . Oh the Humanity !!!!
One can safely be assured if this were any Openly Gay man or woman of Colour our incompetent "Cause of the Day" BC Human Rights Tribunal would "Jump at the Chance" and Froth at the Mouth!
But it seems since he is a "Gay White Male", minding his own business walking home in a "GAY DISTRICT!!!", well that is par for the course as it seems it is acceptable to assault him, cause as we all know " Mr. Gayboy was just asking for it, in our supposedly "Everyone is Equal" in the mistaken belief that we have a "Multicultural Diverse Society" in which Vancouver, British Columbia is called. Of course, just not for Gay People who happen to be of the "Caucasian Race".
Assault on gay man 'not hate crime,' Vancouver police say Last Updated: Friday, June 13, 2008 | 6:58 PM ET CBC News
An attack on a man in Vancouver's West End neighbourhood didn't appear to be an incident of gay bashing as investigators initially suspected, police said on Friday.
The assault took place in the 1600 block of Davie Street shortly after 1 a.m. on May 2, Vancouver police said.
The victim was walking along Davie Street near a convenience store. Three men pelted him with eggs and threw a beer bottle at him but missed.
Police made the conclusion after the men turned themselves in on Friday, following the release of images from a convenience store's surveillance camera earlier in the week.
The surveillance tape shows three Indo-Canadian men were buying eggs and one of them was holding a beer bottle.
"The investigation is ongoing, but early indications are that the assault appears to have been random and not a hate crime," Vancouver police said in a release.
