DJ Bell Trial: Muddled Statements? Really?

by Brandon Burt
- Posted // 2009-09-25 -

Perhaps we need a new surgeon general's warning: "Caution: Having one's head repeatedly bounced off the fists of a horde of large, angry, drunken men may cause muddled statements."

OK--yes, it is Bell who is on trial and not his assailants (who have yet to be held accountable for the attack).

But, let's be clear here: The fact that Bell was beaten amid homophobic slurs reveals the mindset of the neighbors and their partygoing friends. Bell's accusers did not stop to find out whether or not any harm had befallen the children; just the fact that Bell is gay was (and is) enough to convict him in their minds as they executed their special brand of justice. 

Since the investigation relies on the statements of the accusers, isn't the possibility that they may have leapt to the wrong conclusion somewhat relevant to the case?

Apparently not.

Looks like it's open season on homosexuals. All you've got to do is accuse one of a crime involving a child, and let the fists and household appliances fly! Don't worry about "assault laws"--they don't apply when the victim is a faggot.

Since you have been so great at reporting on this - thought you ought to know.

Their Press Conference will be on Monday at 3:45 at the Gallivan Plaza.

It pains me to see this gentleman being tried for a crime he didn't commit that could potentially put him behind bars for 30 years all while the real assailants are on the street.

South Salt Lake Police, and it's investigators should be held directly accountable for the failure to prosecute the assailants. There is absolutely NO excuse to have not charged them.

If you want to see change in South Salt Lake, don't vote for Wes Losser as the next Mayor, rather cast your vote for Cherie Wood.
