Via Pride in Utah, a horrible teen-on-teen hate crime in Indiana at Silver Creek High School.

Openly gay high school sophmore Rito Osorio was lured into a school bathroom during lunch by a another 16 year old student and was beaten while his attacker yelled homophobic slurs. The attacker has been arrested, and is claiming ‘rumors’ as the reason for his attack.

The rumor? The basher didn’t like the idea that Rito thought the assailant might be gay. The unnamed thug was taken into police custody; officials do not know if the assailant will be allowed back at that high school.
