4 Marines Investigated For Possible Hate Crime Outside Popular Gay Bar

LONG BEACH (KTLA) -- Four Marine Corps members are under investigation for a possible hate crime after a man was beaten outside of a popular gay bar.

The unidentified victim was beaten unconscious early Monday morning outside the popular Silver Fox bar in Long Beach.

He was taken to an area hospital with non life threatening injuries and has been released.

The four men were arrested for assault, but the attack is being investigated as a hate crime because one of the Marines reportedly made derogatory remarks to the man during the attack.

The Marines, who have been released on bail, have not been identified.

Two other people were reportedly injured trying to stop the fight.

Hope Dirk Yates gets a hold of them. That would be a good part of a sentence!

As a people, we really need to start giving our bars better names.

The Marines were arrested just after the incident. They have since made bail and returned to their units, Camp Pendleton spokesman Maj. Manuel J. Delarosa said. Military officials were assisting Long Beach police and the Marine Corps was conducting its own probe, he said.

"This is an isolated incident," Delarosa said. "Committing any hate crime is unacceptable behavior and is not tolerated in the Marine Corps."

The victim was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, Long Beach police spokeswoman Lisa Massacani said. The two others who tried to help the victim suffered minor injuries.

Neither Massacani nor Delarosa gave specifics on why it was being considered a possible hate crime.

Arrested were Lance Cpl. Lewis Serna; Pfc. Thomas Pentek; Pfc. Sean Miller and Lance Cpl. John O'Leary. Authorities were trying to determine each person's role in the assault, Stilnovich said.

The four Marines could not be reached for comment on Wednesday.

The Marine corp has - like the Christian Church - their own way of dealing with those kind of things: they simply sweep them under the carpet and then they get all high allmighty when some outsider dares to intrude and question their methods.

It's always a group of closet-cases. You never hear stories about one closet-case who attacks a gay man. It's always a group.

The US Military is an Evangelical Cristian run organization and encourages Marines to do things like this.

There's a freeper with a learning disability trolling DL today. Every homophobic right wing post has been written by someone who's incredibly stupid, like R11. I can't respond to them because their posts have made no sense.

And I have no doubt, R11 that you earned and deserved that fat lip and black eye.

Even if the guy was being a rude, mouthy prick, that does not excuse what happened. The Marines were completely free to disregard him and walk away.

Give me a break. These assholes jumped this guy solely because he's gay. Don't let some anti-gay asshole's hyothetical change what really happened.

I didn't say otherwise. I was responding to R7/11.

This isn't going to stop until we send some MArines back to base with broken heads and enough physical damage that they become useless as cannon fodder and as functioning human beings.

The the Corps will step up "sensitivity training."

r11 - Please explain the scenario where 4 Marines beating 1 civilian UNCONSCIOUS is acceptable.

I driven pass the Silver Fox before what were the Marines doing there in the first place.

There nothing else around the area.

Either you were going to the bar or waiting to bash someone outside of the bar.

I hate when people who hate Gay people go to an area that Gay people frequent.

r23 I agree Gay do need to start fighting back.

The law isn't always on our sides nobody gives a fuck if a Gay person gets his ass kicked.

I don't care if its 5 or 10 dudes someone is getting their ass kicked, tasered, or cut.

I'm a Black lesbian I can give a fuck about not paying a medical bill.

Fight dirty if you have too people don't fight people who can fuck them up.

I agree. These are guys who bought into the slogan "The Marine Corps builds men." They joined the Marines thinking that would rid them of being gay.
