    but this is still up to the local prosecutor, who has not concluded their investigation, and how could they, for an incident that just happened last week? i am not sure why that fact (or the unfortunate fact that sexual orientation is not a suspect class in Alabama) has turned into such a fight, on a site where we're (mostly) all lgtb allies. I don't think the original poster of the thread wants people to shut up.

    I'm just disappointed that such a fight has occured up and down the thread simply because reality is actually rather ugly. we are supposed to be a reality-based site, and I don't see anything wrong with pointing out from a legal point of view that, pending the results of an ongoing investigation, a hate crime has not been proved yet. It absolutely does not negate neither of our opinions that one absolutely has. I think a lot was read into this exchange that actually isn't there because all of our emotions are high. We want to see justice for this poor young woman.

    pseudoscience can kill
