Hate Crime Follow Up: Mass Teen dead in Ark.

GASSVILLE, Ark. -- The teenager suspected of a hatchet-and-gun attack in a Massachusetts gay bar and in the killing of two people in Arkansas, including a policeman, died Sunday of wounds suffered in a gun battle with officers, authorities said (Gay.com).

I will not post the murderer's name. I think that gives him a hint of glory he doesn't deserve. He maybe dead, but the threat continues, not only from him, but from those who are seeking to misuse this horror for their own aims.

A teenager accused of going on a rampage at a gay bar with a hatchet and a gun sometimes glorified Nazism and had a swastika tattoo but never previously expressed any prejudice toward gays, friends say (Gay.com).

The play is to blame Insane Clown Posse, and to a lesser extent Nazism for this kids actions. Music does not cause this! I agree that we shouldn't support hate filled music, because hate is contagious no matter its form, but Insane Clown Posse is a shock rock band. I am not sure they advocate hate. Nazism will become an excuse to ignore the hate in the culture.

We need to look for answers to end hate, not a scapegoat to blame.
