    Terrible, terrible stuff. I lost a wonderful former student of mine, Rosalind, due to a similar, though entirely different, really, type of violence. Ros was shot to death by her lover, also a woman, in Milwaukee a couple years back. Still hurts.

    Thank ALL of you from the bottom of my heart! It means the world to Kayla & Amber - and me - to know there are so many good people in the world.

    I hope she's ok, and hope that the police treat this case without bias. What a vicious assault. It sounds like the attacker was not mentally stable.

    I hate how that News 9 article says "claims", as though she's probably just another whining gay throwing accusations against straights.

    The responses on here are heartening - I'm from England and I have to admit I thought that most Americans were homophobic, so I'm guilty of making assumptions!

    It was a woman who attacked her

    I am SO sorry this has happened to your friend. Please give her our wishes for a very quick recovery physically and mentally from this crime.


    BBM. I agree. Snarky, I'm so sorry this happened to your friend. I'm also praying for a full recovery both physically and mentally.

    I think it's the opposite. State trumps federal, otherwise there would be no need for individual state laws, no?

    If it fell under the Federal Hate Crime law, wouldn't the feds have to come in and charge the perp?

    I wonder if the perp can be charged with both state and federal charges?

    Anyhoo, it is ridiculous Oklahoma does not recognize sexual orientation within their laws for hate crimes.
