Despite a pretty successful election where us gays are concerned, the hate continues.
Police in Grove City, a suburb of Columbus, are investigating a gay hate crime. David Robins and his partner, Michael, awoke Wednesday morning to find the word “fags” scraweled in red across their garage door along with other slurs spray-painted on other parts of their property.
Here’s more from NBC4i.com:
David Robins and his partner, Michael, have lived at their home on Castleton Street in Grove City for nine years.
Wednesday morning, Robins said, they awoke to find someone had spray-painted homophobic slurs on their garage door, home and fence.
“It’s extremely disappointing. Nine years we’ve lived here and not a problem. Now, all of a sudden this happens. It makes me kind of wonder,” he said.
He said they’ve never had any problems before.
“I kind of feel like it needs to stay up to make a statement, but at the same time, I don’t want to disrupt the neighbors, the perception of the neighborhood, but I also feel like I don’t want to cover it up either,” he said.
Robins is calling it a hate crime and Grove City police are investigating.
“My partner Michael is a little bit more fearful. I’m a little bit more aggressive than Michael is, but he’s fearful of it. He’s a little nervous about why it happened,” he said.
Anyone with information about the incident is being asked to call the Grove City Police Department directly at 614-277-1710.
