Illinois Will Prosecute
Brett VanAsdlen

By Rev Ted Pike
7 Aug 2008

Unresponsive to protest from across America, Illinois State’s Attorney Julia Rietz moves forward in “hate crimes” prosecution against Christian teen and scholarship athlete Brett VanAsdlen. On October 7th at 11:00 AM the State will present evidence for its accusation that Brett is a hate criminal for pushing over accosting homosexual, Steven Velasquez. If found guilty, Brett could spend three years behind bars.
This is yet another example of the power and audacity of Orwellian hate laws to possibly ruin the life of anyone, young or old, who offends a homosexual. Although the chances of deterring the state of Illinois through protest are fading, lovers of freedom can still make the hate crimes gestapo pay for this outrage. They can publicize and criticize the hate law of Illinois and hate laws in general as widely as possible. The Illinois hate law should be repealed, just as Pennsylvania recently repealed the portion of its hate law which gave special protection to homosexuals. Protest through radio talk shows, internet, church and civic groups, as well as word of mouth. For background information on this case see Christian Teen Arrested for 'Hate Crime', Illinois Pursues Hate Crimes Charges Against Teen, and Police State in Champaign, Illinois.
