A hate crime

Two men go to a party. They see something there which makes them think that two other men are gay. So they kidnap them, terrorise them, and order them to leave town.

Did this happen in Texas? Alabama? No - it happened right here in New Zealand last week.

This is a hate crime, pure and simple. The good news is that the perpetrators are being prosecuted. The bad news is that these backward, bigoted attitudes still persist in rural parts of New Zealand.
