Lincoln Park Attack on Gay Men Leaves One Man Hospitalized


We have to remember,
        haters are everywhere.

 Even with advances in gay rights, there are still a lot of people who hate us. And some who want to harm us. 
From the Chicago Sun-Times website:
    A Cook County prosecutor remains hospitalized Friday after losing “a lot of blood” when two teenage men attacked him for trying to stop an assault on two apparently gay men Thursday night in Lincoln Park.
    The attack happened  at about 7pm  in the 200 block of West Diversey Parkway, police News Affairs Officer Joshua Purkiss said.
    The 32-year-old employee of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office was walking by himself along the lakefront when he saw two people approach two apparently gay men and verbally assault them, state’s attorney’s office spokeswoman Sally Daly said.
    The prosecutor yelled at the men to stop in an attempt to prevent a physical attack, Daly said. The attackers then physically attacked him.
    They slashed   the prosecutor multiple times, with  a broken beer bottle, including cutting his face, right side and arms,  and beat him, Daly said.
That is all that has been reported so far…..
