In this wonderful country being victimized by a criminal means one has the opportunity to be victimized yet again by police.
“They decided that they were going to target Luke for being open about their sexuality,” he says.
When O’Donovan’s friends later left the party, the group of men that called him an anti-gay slur then attacked him. O’Donovan struggled to get away, but the men attached him a second time, Schwarz says.
“They got him again and at some point a knife was pulled out and everyone involved was cut,” he says. “He struggled a second time and was able to get away.”
O’Donovan and five other people were treated at a local hospital for injuries they sustained during the incident, according to police.
Apparently the five that were stabbed lain in wait and pursued O’Donovan into the night where they obviously caught up with him.
So he is insulted, pursued, attacked, and when he finally decides he needs to fight back he is arrested.
O’Donovan told the guy not to use that language, Richard said.There is a facebook page
“Luke said don’t do that ... and it seemed like an understanding was reached,” Richard said. “After that, things got a little bit better. He never got kicked out of the party. Everyone was having a good time. He [Luke] was being very jolly.”
“[Luke] just tried to leave,” Richard said. “They were chasing him down the hill. It was like they were trying to kill him. It seemed like it was planned and calculated.”
What are we supposed to do? Lie down and let them beat us to death I guess.
