Illinois to become second state to ban 'gay panic defense'

Recommended Posts

Sad to know that there are only two states.  Makes it appear that all other states consider it perfectly okay to for someone toi beat the crap out of, or kill a gay person - all the killer has to do is claim his freakin' homophobia kicked in and he panicked.

I commend Illinois for having passed such legislation, but unless I'm not understanding all of that article, it's not clear to me if this new law applies to those who assault or kill trans people, also.  I hope it does.

I believe this legislation does cover transgender attacks. At least that was my understanding -- and other states to follow.
