ABC on the Ohio boy brutally beaten for being gay

ABC News:

Other students watched as the attacker waited for his victim to arrive in the classroom. He then shoved his prey to the ground, and repeatedly punched him in the face.

“The boy stood there and waited and waited on him,” Collins told the ABC affiliate. “As soon as he walked in the door, the boy hits. [My son] walks away — ‘What did I do? Why are they doing this?’ and keeps walking away. He turns around and tries to defend himself and then he tries to get away and the boy grabs him and beats the living crap out of him.”

Collins said her son broke two teeth, and may have suffered a concussion.

“Just for all the people out there who have hate in their heart — they need to let it go,” she said. “People are going to be who they are.”
