    I'm sorry if it seemed like I interpreted it that way.

    I do hope they end up charging this guy with a hate crime, but it doesn't sound like they will.  In which case, at least we know the gay panic defense most likely will not work.

    Then again, it IS Mississippi.

      I appreciate your insight and feel I got a nice mini legal education in just this single diary.
