Texas: 75 Years For Gay Bashing

A man in Dallas just got 75 years for a gay bashing that took place in 2008.
Bobby Singleton, 30, was convicted of aggravated robbery earlier this week, according to The Dallas Morning News. He was found guilty of assaulting and robbing Jimmy Dean (pictured) at gunpoint in the Oak Lawn section of Dallas. Singleton said he and his friend Jonathan Gunter did not attack Dean because he was gay, but in his police confession, he said they went to the area to specifically target gays. He also said using the word "faggot" was not homophobic but fair game for anyone in a fight.
The basher apologized to his victim during sentencing, blaming his actions on alcohol and drugs.
