Suspect indicted in Northern Kentucky hate crime

Devlin Burke | Fox 19

The man accused of attacking two lesbian women in Covington, Ky., has been indicted on three counts of second-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree assault.

Devlin Burke allegedly beat the women as they were leaving Yadda Club in August 2010, and stabbed two men who intervened.

According to Fox 19, Burke was previously convicted of beating a gay man in 2003, and he served prison time for killing a man in a fight.

Several similar incidents were reported last summer, and residents met with Covington city officials to demand action. The commissioners reaffirmed Covington’s commitment to human rights. In response, these anonymous fliers sprang up around town:

Local activists and businesses then organized an event to raise awareness and money for a campaign fighting against hate crimes in Northern Kentucky.

  1. Can someone explain why people believe “gay” is the same thing as “child molester”? I couldn’t get past the first paragraph!

  3. Ignorance is bliss.
    Look at this guy, seriously.
    What better does he have to do?
    I am sure his parent (s) was never much of a role model for him.
    Babies are not born with hate in them, they get it from the people around them.
    He is truly a messed up person that never had a chance from the day he was born, although he should know right from wrong. Not to mention most of his hate stems from the fact (and I can tell by the way he looks) that he hasn’t had pussy since pussy had him.
    Its all a big mess, and he deserves to be gang raped with a knife by every homosexual and lesbian in this world and next lifetime. Then and only then will justice truly be served.
    P.s. I am straight, but my bbf is gay.
