Man Attacks Gay Couple Who Graduated From West Point, And Gets His Ass Subsequently Handed to Him

Man Attacks Gay Couple Who Graduated From West Point, And Gets His Ass Subsequently Handed to Him

The first gay couple to marry at West Point, grads Daniel and Larry Lennox-Choate, was recently attacked by a homophobe. Daniel graduated in 2007, then served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan; after Larry graduated two years later, they got hitched at their alma mater in 2013.

Days ago, the Lennox-Choates are just hanging out at a SoHo bodega, living their lives, when an unidentified 40-year-old man starts yelling obscenities at them.

LL-C explained the situation in a Facebook post:

‘It’s hard to believe that in 2015 we would have to deal with anti-gay hate crimes in soho of all places but that’s what happened today. First off- we’re ok. Aside from one fat lip and a sore punching arm, we are fine. The guy who screamed anti-gay obscenities at us in a bodega before sucker-punching Danny? He left covered in his own blood with his tail between his legs after I handled the situation and tossed him in the street like the coward loser he is. The hate crimes division of the NYPD is on the case and we have full faith a positive outcome will follow. We refuse to be victims and are thankful we can defend ourselves, but are saddened by the fact that idiots like this guy might not pick two guys who went through Plebe Boxing next time.’

Police told the New York Daily News that no arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing. But despite this incident, according to the NYPD, anti-gay attacks are down 20% in the city.

    Wow! Nice. I love it when bullies are put in their rightful place: garbage!
    Sadly if this happened in naija, it will be d opposite. Police would rather arrest the gay couple and praise the gay basher

    Pays to marry a butt kicking husband, i’m guessing it was the top that did the butt kicking, which to me seems ideal. Or maybe i just have internalized Bottomphobia…the horror

    Me no get power to fight. I’ve come to realize that the few fights I’ve ever engaged in was because I had had enough and was ready for the consequences I.e. death. You can say I’m in suicidal mode whenever I engage in physical fight :(.

    Life don dey sweet me too much these days so once I smell fight, I pack my load and waka very very far!

    In a somewhat similar case.Nawao people are really evil in nigeria infact knowing that somebody is actually gay isnt enough to trust them.A friend of mine recently got into a kito situation with a guy another facebook friend of his linked him with.Tho the friend that linked him with d guy that set him up have never met too but they have mutual friends and he played along and also gave his number so my friend could contact him.His new in the town so he really wanted to atleast know even if it was one person so they met at the agreed location one night and as they were discussing group of guys including police officers just out of nowhere grabbed him and bundled him into their vehicle forcing him to write a statement and later on taking him home that same night to pick his atm card and he had to settle them with about 30thousand naira.Though they released him that same day at about 1pm middle of d nite and actually dropped him off at home telling him to desist from such act and also pretend they never met and not to try anything funny cos thats why they forces him to write a statement.His fear now is that they might actually try to be blackmailing him to get money out of him though he gave them the impression that he was just a struggling student who had to empty his bank account to be able to settle them.I told him i believe its all over what do u guys think???

      My dear our police system in nigeria is something else it was either he wrote the statement or face some sort of merciless beating and we all know some beating could result to death.One even said they can decide to shoot him and frame him as an armed robber.My thinking is they only used the statement as an insurance that he wont later come back and charge them of bribery and assault.
