Because I did not take a young man’s newspaper, the free daily Express, he yelled and called me “FAGGOT”! My roommate, probably targeted for his small stature, has been punched in the face and had his glasses broken by young kids in the same spot. He was also later hit after he did not have a quarter to give to the young kids who asked for it. What does one do when the violent offenders are youth?
