Man who claimed he was beaten for being gay admits he made it all up after police receive video of him hitting HIS OWN head after back-flipping off a curb
I love this video, but it could have been better. Instead of this moron using his humiliating moment to make himself a martyr, he could have simply broke his neck and died.
Police say that Baken initially claimed three men beat him early Sunday after he went into a Missoula bar, announced it was his birthday and asked if anyone knew where he could find a gay bar.
Photos of Baken’s badly bruised face were posted on an anti-homophobia Facebook page and other sites, and the case prompted widespread support from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
The site alleged that the fictitious assailants used anti-gay curses targetted at Baken’s homosexuality.
