Lesbian Couple in Missouri Alleges Neighborhood Kids Attacked Them

A lesbian couple in Missouri say three neighborhood kids showed up on their porch, then dragged one of them out of the home for a vicious beating because she's gay.

A lesbian couple in Missouri say three neighborhood kids showed up on their porch, then dragged one of them out of the home for a vicious beating because she's gay.

Jeana Terry and Lisa Lange told the Southeast Missourian that they were asleep in their living room when they awoke to their 16-year-old neighbor shouting antigay slurs at them through the window. The couple say they ordered the girl and a posse of her friends off the porch. Then when Terry opened the door to confront them, she was dragged outside and beaten.

"Once I was down, it was pure chaos," Terry told the Southeast Missourian.

Lange called police and then headed outside to protect Terry. When police arrived, they arrested the three young people, who live across the street from the couple. The 16-year-old girl could face burglary and hate-crime charges. Her younger sister, 13, and brother, 11, pleaded guilty to trespassing and second-degree assault.
