D.C. man charged with hate crime against lesbian


A 19-year-old man who allegedly attacked a woman outside the Columbia Heights Metro station was charged with a hate crime this week — 10 days, the victim says, after seven police officers refused to take action immediately after the attack.
Christian Washington of Northwest Washington was charged with bias-related assault Tuesday. The police response to the attack, in which five lesbians were attacked by at least two men, attracted scrutiny from members of the city’s gay, lesbian and transgender community after the victims said responding officers refused to take a report................

The man swung at her several times, hit her left eye and knocked her to the ground, Morse said. Her head hit the pavement, and she saw another one of the men punching her friends in the face one after another, she said. Morse tried to defend her friends until officers arrived and broke up the fight, she said. The women suffered bruises, facial scratches, cuts and other injuries, according to charging documents. Police are still investigating the case.
None of the seven officers at the scene agreed to take a report, according to several of the women who were interviewed this week. The attackers continued to taunt them even after the officers arrived, the women said, but the police did not intervene..................

you know how in movies and tv shows when a man hits on a woman and she's not interested, for the 'laugh', the dude says, 'ah, she's a lesbian'? well that REALLY happens ALL of the time in real life.

that's a horse of a different color. obviously those men were not secure with who they were. what i'm MOST angry about is how the police handled it. like i said, nothing has been proven yet, but i'm tending to believe the women. that's the cryin' shame
