(POCATELLO, ID)  —  Pocatello Police are investigating what may be a hate crime.  Officials say two gay men were walking home from a bar early Sunday when they were assaulted on the corner of 9th Ave. and Center Street. A man reportedly pulled up behind them, got out of his vehicle, and attacked the couple, who were holding hands. One of the victims was hospitalized and later released. Authorities have very little information to work with, other than a description of the suspect as being around six feet tall and well built.

    I HATE people like that. Leave them ALONE! For goodness’ sakes, they’re just being themselves. Would you attack a heterosexual couple walking along the sidewalk? No, you most likely wouldn’t. But a homosexual couple? “Oh, they’re going to hell and I wanna be the one to send them.” What is wrong with people?
