Denver man needs reconstructive surgery following alleged anti-gay attack

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

DENVER — Police in Denver are investigating an assault on a gay man over the holiday weekend in what the victim said was an anti-gay hate crime.

Jared Olson before and after he was badly beaten on Sept. 2.

Jared Olson, 23, said he and a friend were leaving Sam’s Hookah Lounge in Denver around 2 a.m. Monday when they were approached by a group of people in the parking lot yelling gay slurs. Olson said one man got particularly aggressive.

“He kept asking ‘What are you looking at faggot’ and he walked to my door, pulled my door open, and hit me in the face,” Olson said. “My clothes when I went to the hospital were covered in blood.”

“I don’t have a doubt in my mind they had a problem with us being gay,” he said.

Olson is recovering from fractures in his face and other injuries. He says he will need reconstructive surgery, which could cost approximately $50,000.

Watch a report from KCNC-TV:

Friends and supporters have created a Facebook page called Justice for Jared, which is following his recovery and the criminal investigation of his attack.

Police say once their investigation is complete, the district attorney’s office will determine whether the incident is classified as a hate crime.

  10. The do it because they can get away with it with little or no punishment and no compensation to their victims! I know all to well. It's been 14 years and i still have not received any compensation or justice for having my head bashed in with a tire iron leaving me with with a brain injury and a sentence of poverty living on what little the governments pay to persons with disabilities.

  29. according to alot that i been reading,i dont believe these are random attacks.lately it seems it is *a group* and they are mostly moving outside of clubs/bars.the man who visited ohio,this one and a few others i have read.even though different locations,it makes me feel something deeper is taking place.and with everything going on,i dont feel its safe to be alone and at a club/bar.something inside me says that these events are going to trigger something must bigger,if the country doesnt get its head out of its ass.only one so far that i have seen,has even been looked into and seen as a hate crime.during all this,even many of us have been stumped and shock.no one can doubt there has been a huge rise in attacks lately.though we all know its based on hate crimes,i cant stomach whats coming..

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 5:45am
  30. Though i dont feel these groups are out to kill but my insides tell me it is out of fear.what kept many of us in hiding to start with or to send a message.please dont hold me to this but im stating what i feel.all situations have a turn around but these attacks just seem to..i dont know..right. organized i feel is the best way to put it. My point is,please be safe and all else fails-stay away from bars and clubs or at least,carry protection.

  61. Sounds like they were stalking the parking lot of the bar, which would make it a pre meditated crime. Why would someone go out of their way to beat up someone they didn’t even know for no reason other than they were gay? THere is some serious hate in this world.

  100. You're the first person to be this blunt and not that I condone violence with violence, but it's come to that. We have to make a decision, is it going to be us that are going down or them? We need to protect ourselves by all means neccessary and fight fire with fire. I'm disgusted hearing these stories about our brothers and sisters being beaten. I'm sick of it and it has to stop. Maybe if we start showing them that we're not going to stand for it anymore!

Depends johnny.this is one thing that made me sick the most.Its coming to all out war.lets use stonewall for example but much deadlier.Not exactly on the same idea but to defend self.most of those attacked can say what they had with them but the truth is,these mods are hoping that said LGBT will run into the closet and hide out of fear.aka removing them from trying to fight for their human rights.but what would happen if it had the opposite effect? i dont think they would expect an outright uprising and it may prove to be a benefit but that doesnt mean they will be ignorant for long.they could either back down all together,knowing we wont take it anymore or two,gear up as well.but as history shows,no one gets anywhere while sitting down.its now time to question what is worth fighting for and what is worth letting happen.this is a personal choice on all LGBT.my choice has already been made.

  153. Bridget,though im sure you have alot of anger inside toward Christians and in the media lately,they have proven they deserve such mistrust and hatred but keep in mind that their ways and actions,are NOT a universal thing.One thing to remember is this-we can keep faith in man kind,who will ALWAYS let us down or keep faith in God,who we KNOW-does not promote such things and is not condoning these kinds of people.Even jesus has holy wrath.For example,when he his self chased gamblers and merchants from the temple and outside into the street.and he bluntly screamed *you have turned the house of God into a den of thieves!!* I was born and raised Christian and being apart of the LGBT,he alone taught me unconditional love.Why? because never once did he leave my side,as a matter of fact-as a transman,he picked out MY name for me.Because he loves all and not because of what we have done,been,said,who we loved but because we are his creations.the only creature in the world with a soul (well thats debatable lol) i mean the ones he came to die for.And as someone who is Christian,i WILL fight hatred,injustice and self righteous people.God his self also said that *revenge is mine* and on anyone who brings harm to those who love him (not *say* but really do.unlike alot of people in the media today) All i ask is,do not lump me together with those low lives.i do not believe what they do,faaaar from it.Trust NO man but trust God,that love will prevail.

  154. For god’s sake, why the hell do these homophobes believe that beating someone within an inch of their life because they are gay, will somehow magically turn someone straight?

We need to protect each other, we need to look out for one another. Take self-defense classes, carry mace, etc, do what you need to do to protect yourselves. Do not allow anyone to take you down.

  290. OMG this is the kind of thing that upsets me, these beautiful children, teens, and young adults as part of the gay community myself i stand up for them. i know that we are all human and we as gay people need to stand our grounds. after all if we as gay people attacked and brutally abused straight men/women for being who they are then they wouldnt like it. we all have the right to love whomever we want. not one person can make us gay people straight. i dont like to read about this nor do i like to see this kind of thing happen to anybody… it isnt right!!!

  336. Aw what a cutie just because he’s gay doesn’t mean you gotta hate. If you don’t like gay people why waste your time bothering them. Some people are stupid and makes no sense at all. If a person is gay or whatever let them be who they are. Don’t hurt them for being them. It’ not right. I know that a lot of people don’t take others for who they are because of how they grew up…. But you should take a person for who they are not for who you want them to be it’s not right. I’m not a big fan of lesbians but I have no problems with being their friends. I find gays more attractive and they have an awesome personality. Unlike some people. I gather be friends with a gay guy instead of a straight guy.

    Posted on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 10:23pm
  337. Heather Ryan… They don’t beat the hell out of them because they are gay. They use that as an excuse to justify what they have done! They would just as easily do something this horrible to anybody! A homeless person, a gay person, a women, or just a regular Joe they catch off guard. Anyone who they perceive as weak! Because they are disgusting cowards who get their rocks off on hurting people!

  402. I think that places where people congregate (bars,clubs,etc) should have a safety perimeter around the business. Keep someone outside to watch for potential trouble. Equipped with a flashlight, a phone and a notepad. If there is a presence there, it could help or prevent things of this nature from happening in the future. The more preemptive steps are taken, the safer we will all be.

  444. being gay is not a crime!!! its how you live and what you do.. you dont have to punish someone on what they are,, being gay or straight doesn’t rate you as a human its how you been doing as human.. beating this guy makes you happy but do you think it adds something to you?? we are created equal by Creator.. me, you and him..iits easy to be look like a human but hard to act like one..human appearance…animal behavior..>>

  517. You know what’s the most sad? If this kid looked and acted straight they probably would have left him alone. I know I struggle with my gay friends who are more obviously flamboyant. But I know I shouldn’t, and yet it’s so ingrained into American men that being gay, having feeling (America Jesus forbid); expressing your emotions, or otherwise balancing your masculine and feminine
