    I got this from a friend of mine who lives in Tennessee.

    Crap like this pisses me off!

    "I haven't told any other Seattle people this. My face was on every Tennessee newspaper and TV News program. My name was all over the radio. My pic and the whole story is all over the net.

    And none of it happened. A kid who was in a play I was directing, not even one of my students, accused me of rape. I have lost EVERYTHING. I am currently living at home with my parents, receiving daily death threats.

    Let me just give you some of the background.

    Basically I had an adult who was extremely jealous of me (who can figure why) and wanted a job I had running this little dinner theatre. Ironically, had he just asked, I would have given it to him.
    Instead he teamed up with this kid and they created these bogus accusations and have effectively ruined my career.

    It seems as if the truth is coming out, but that will never get my career
    back. I suppose I will live the rest of my life under a cloud of suspicion.
    After 20 years of working so hard to be treated as a professional, to have this happen is quite a blow.

    I have been teaching for 20 years, very successfully, no problems. This Fall, a kid came out to me and I was as supportive as possible. His parents had kicked him out, blah blah blah....the whole sob story.

    2 months later, out of nowhere, he accuses me of rape.

    I was interrogated at school (without being read my rights), not allowed to leave or call my lawyer, and arrested. They took me to the jail, which is where things really get crazy.

    The jailers put me in a cell IN MY SUIT (yes tie and all), a cell rated for 14 people, filled with at least 25 guys, all in their dirty jumpsuits or filthy underwear. It was like DELIVERANCE. The jailer proudly announced to those gathered, "This teacher raped a little boy!" Within3 minutes they were on me, beat and kicked me unconscious, tied me to the bars and beat me with brooms after I passed out. I had 3 broken ribs and a concussion, fractured skull. The jailers just left me there, hurt and bleeding and unconscious. When meal time came, they threw to food on me, pissed on me... It was actually a living hell. They refused me my medication (one jailer said, "you can choose one, so chose wisely). I felt sure I would die. One jailer said, "when he gets out, we'll tell the Klan boys where to find him, and they'll take care of this the right way." I had obviously been put in that cell to be killed.

    After I bonded out, I spent the next 3 days in the hospital.

    Nothing was done to the prisoners who attacked me or the jailers who let it happen. And I lost my job.

    So I am staying busy w/ little local projects. The community has been so supportive of me as have my students and their families.
    I just can't wait until the trial parts are over.

    I will kill myself before I'll go back to jail and let those rednecks do it to me (especially for something I didn't do).

    I do not know why I just felt the need to tell you this.

    The kid's getting close to admitting it was a set up, the closer he gets to realizing he's going to be outed. The Sheriff admitted to claiming falsely to have extracted a signed, written confession from me in his press release to the media. But they are all still proudly walking the streets while I am forced to hide out and collect unemployment and do my shopping at 3 am!

    I know we haven't seen each other in 10 years. But I am a complete pacifist. I have a major back injury and don't even have much use of my right arm anymore. The kid claims I held him down and forced him to watch me masturbate and that I forced him to smoke pot and drink beer with me. I don't even smoke pot!

    It's just a nightmare. And hysteria has allowed it to happen. If you look at my postings from yesterday, you'll see the story of what happened to Peter Bacon, who will be flying here to testify at my trial.

    WOW! I just spilled my guts. Sorry."

    WOW that's a crazy, horrifying story!! That was someone you know? It reads like a spam email from someone looking for money. I mean A,B,C spam.
    If it's true I'm really sorry for your friend. It's like something out of the early 60's. How can they get away w/it?!

    "How can they get away with it?" Hell, this is queer-hating, gay-crucifying America, after all...and people in the South seem to be worse haters than those in other parts of the country. Though that may be a misimpression. Remember how well the Neocons/Republicans played the hate-queers card...over and over and over and..........? To listen to them, all of the country's (world's?) problems are due solely to them queer perverts. Queers are, as you've heard again and again, undermining the institution of (mixed) marriage, for example; they just don't respect its sanctity. And this in a country with a 50% divorce rate for (mixed) marriages! My partner and I have been together, in the one and only partnership for each of us, through thick and thin, peace and quarrels--and will never consider breaking up. (Look again at the divorce rate of couples in "sanctified" mixed marriages, please.) But to be fair, we do have any number of straight couples who are very good friends and accept us not as circus freaks and degenerates, but for what we are: normal and productive human beings...except for that one thing: our sexual orientation. --And to get back to Sklar's friend's horrifying case, there's that murder-inspiring LIE that gays, most or even all, are pedophiles. Look at police reports and certified statistics: most pedophiles are HETEROSEXUAL. But strangely enough, I for one don't consider all heterosexuals child-molesting perverts. Statistics also indicate that most pedophiles, of whatever persuasion, are less than picky when it comes to the gender of their victims. It's apparently the age that perhaps in most cases turns them on, rather than the miniature genitalia. ---This posting is perhaps not terribly well organized or complete--but though I'm short of time at the moment, I wanted to take this opportunity to lay out a few facts from a gay man's perspective. Thought of the day: Some of my best friends are heterosexuals..... And that's the truth!

    Damn! Why do jails on tv have cameras everywhere and there was none there to record this attack of your friend? There just is no justice sometimes I swear.

    I'm very sorry to hear what happened to your friend. Unfortunately it not the first time its happened. And to top it off, once your friend is found innocent he won't get the same coverage in the media. There will always be the stigma hanging over his head. I hope he sues the asses off the person that put the kid up to it as well as the sheriff and jailers.

    Just this past week a friend of mine who is a CEO of a large corporation was interviewed by the media about one of his staff who was arrested for child pornography. He sent out a press release and one TV station called him for the interview. The TV station fucked up and reported that he was the one fired and arrested. Later they retracted the report but he still has people who have questioned him about his arrest. Thankfully his company is suing the station but there will undoubtedly be some people who didn't hear the retraction.
