Gay Ind. teen expelled for bringing stun gun to school attacked, hate crime to be decided
Dynasty Young, a 17-year-old, gay youth from Indianapolis, Ind. was attacked by an older man yesterday evening after making national news for bringing a stun gun to school.
When bullies began threatening him and school officials refused to step in, Young’s mother Chelisa Grimes protected her son the only way she could: by providing him with a somewhat harmless stun gun.
While at work yesterday evening, a man approached Young and said he knew his family, before insulting him with harmful statements regarding his mother and sexuality.
"He said my momma was a stupid b—— for giving me a taser… (and that) I’m f—-ing up Indiana," Young said.
When Young chose not to listen, the man stepped closer to him, threateningly pointing a finger in his face. When Young asked him to get out of his face, the man punched him.
Rather than hit him back, Young stepped backward and security at his workplace stepped in and prevented a second hit. The man has been charged with assault and battery and could be charged with a hate crime in the near future.
"I still am going to fight for what I believe in… but it is affecting my life," Young said.
