They maintain their innocence

Last year, a same-sex couple in Philadelphia was brutally beaten. Kevin Harrigan, Kathryn Knott, and Philip Williams were arrested in connection with the incident. They have been charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, and recklessly endangering another person. The three maintain that they are innocent of the charges against them:

Defendants were slated to appear for a pretrial bring back, so the court can assess the status of the case and progress in the discovery phase.

No trial date has been set yet, but Common Pleas Judge Frank Palumbo scheduled the next in-court date as April 16, PGN reports.

In January, a preliminary arraignment was held in the case of the three accused attackers, who are charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, and recklessly endangering another person (REAP). Williams and Harrigan are also charged with conspiracy. They were all arrested September 24.

In December, one of the victims testified in court for an hour, accusing Harrigan of asking him the night of the attack, “Is that your fucking boyfriend?,” and, “So you’re a dirty, fucking faggot?”

He also told the court Knott “hit me in the face and just kept calling me a ‘dirty, fucking faggot,’ ‘faggot, faggot.'”

Where is the conservative outcry over this crime?

Why are no RWAs stepping up and condemning yet another example of white-on-white violence?

All those people who point at African-Americans and cry “where is your personal responsibility”…where are they now? Where are the cries for these three white people to show some personal responsibility?

Why are Muslims expected to step up and condemn the actions of Islamic extremists, but white people don’t have to step up and condemn the actions of these three violent-and white-homophobes?

Why, it’s almost like there’s one set of rules for white people, and another set of rules for everyone else.
