Warren County hate crime update: WKRN

Nashville's Channel 2 now joins Channel 5, Fox 17, and Out & About Newspaper in covering the hate crimes against Neal Anthony of Warren County. As of this posting, there is no text story on the News 2 web site, but you can find video located at http://www.wkrn.com . Anthony indicated that although many think gay people are scared, he would "shoot" anyone who set foot on his property. The Warren County Sheriff was interviewed, which is a new and welcome angle in the coverage. He says that many hours have been spent on the case.

Meanwhile, the web site of the Southern Standard, Warren County's local paper, was updated extensively today, but there is still no mention of the incident.
