Not a hate crime.

Well it looks like Matt Shepard's murder was not a hate crime after all, even though Obama singed a law under his name. Please read the following to see what I mean. Shepard was not a perfect 'Poster Boy' for gays after all. Can you say Meth, heroin, prostitution, etc.

Please - don't get carried away.

ONE author wrote ONE book and made a lot of statements based on information from unknown sources.

Knowing that people have been trying to discredit Mr. Shepard since the original crime, I'm going to wait until there's a little more validation to the the story before jumping to the conclusion that this one writer got it right while everybody else over the past two decades has been wrong.

I'm not excusing the crime, just the assumption that he was blameless. Sometimes when you play with fire you get burned.

... and I'm just saying saying that because one author puts Mr. Shepard at blame for his murder, it may not have anything to do with fact.

This is such a huge story, I'm amazed there has been no mention on any "legitimate" news station.
