HATE raises its ugly head in Washoe County

Breaking News—–

Vandalism that occurred in Sun Valley, just north of Reno, yesterday.

The GLBTQ+ community in Washoe County is a buzz this morning following an incident seen as a hate crime when a gay man’s home in Sun Valley was tagged with the Words “DIE FAGGOT DIE” sometime yesterday (Thursday, September 6) morning.

The incident was brought to light through a facebook posting by Scott Reimers. In the post Reimers says he can’t believe this happened.

“This is a hate crime.” Reimer’s post read. “It is threatening someone just for being themselves, and it isn’t ok.  If anyone saw the person(s) spray painting yesterday morning please reach out to help identify them and stop this. Our community is better than this…”

Therenogaypage contacted the public Information officer at the Washoe County Sherrif’s Office who was unavailable at the time. Therenogaypage is waiting for the call to be returned and will add details to this story as it develops.

Comments left on the Facebook posting decry the incident and offer support and ask why local media has not mentioned anything. Therenogaypage has reached out to Reimer for more information.

This story is breaking and will be updated as more information is learned.
