Put the images under a cut because they are graphic in nature and can be triggering.
PLEASE DO NOT VIEW THESE IF YOU FIND IMAGES OF VIOLENCE UPSETTING OR TRIGGERING.
SPREAD THE WORD:
For those of you who are curious but too afraid you might be triggered, Mallory (pictured) was invited to her girlfriend’s house on Thanksgiving by her girlfriend’s brother, who then beat her within an inch of her life, supposedly for being gay. He is currently out on bail and was only charged with 2nd degree assault, even though she has experienced a brain bleed and has needed metal plates implanted into her face.
However, I think it’s also important to note that Mallory is now recovering at the home where she was attacked, and she claims that it was not a hate crime. It’s still terrible, though, so here are the rest of the links from the OP that are under the cut - however, there are graphic images/videos on the news coverage links as well.
