From an article from Colorado’s CW 2:
PARKER, Colo. — Lesbian partners in Parker say they’re the victims of a frightening hate crime. Someone painted an anti-gay message on their garage and left a noose on their doorstep.
“You get words like ‘homos’ or ‘you’re going to burn in hell’ and things of that nature, but ‘kill the gay?’ That’s a threat against our lives so it was overwhelming,” says Aimee Whitchurch.
“The noose is where it really became shocking and scary,” Whitchurch says.
