So I'm surprised that this didn't get picked up on anyone's radar last year. I was reading through hate crimes databases and came across an incident from February 2, 2007, in which two teenage girls in Des Moines hit a gay teenager over the head with a bottle, stabbed him with a plastic fork, stole $5, an ATM card, and his wallet, and lit fire to his backpack. They were charged with burglary and arson. Something seems to be missing in the charges. Via splcenter.org.
