A bitch was horrified to read this shit. Patrons attacked in a gay bar…with a hatchet and a gun!

Sick and hateful motherfucker!

My heart goes out to the victims and their families. May they recover from this violent assault and be whole. My heart also goes out to the community of New Bedford Mass. and a bitch sincerely hopes that they pull together and not apart.

Be careful and aware...
The alleged assailant is Jacob D. Robida, 18, of New Bedford. He is considered violent, armed and dangerous. Police said Robida has dark hair, is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 200 pounds. He is believed to be driving a 1999 green Pontiac Grand Am with Massachusetts plate number 85EC58.

If you have any information about this crime or the location of this freak, please contact the New Bedford police or your local police department. Do not approach this person. And if you see him near a known GLBT business or community center/shopping area/anything gay…call 911 immediately.

I live in Rhode Island, maybe a 40 minute drive out of New Bedford. THIS WAS NOT ON THE LOCAL NEWS. Repeat, this was NOT on my local news! Your link was the first I'd heard of this awful hate crime. Whaddaya think - are my local TV news outlets somewhat less than, umm, "fair and balanced?"

You know, this is the kind of bullshit people need to hear about. Dammit!

I wonder how this makes certain 'haters' feel. I mean, David Rovics could write the perfect song for this...something like "Who Would Jesus Bash" or something catchy like that.

Dammit. Dammit. Dammit.

I just wish people would figure out that violence isn't the answer...but again, when you have a wonderful role model (i.e. THE U.S.!!) showing how to perpetuate violence in the name of peace why wouldn't you be violent.

Ugh. Sister in the struggle, I urge you to urge others to live the change they wish to see. Be peace. Be justice. Start the revolution.

In peaceful struggle,
