San Diego Gay & Lesbian News (SDGLN) reports on an apparent murder-suicide:
The LGBT community and their allies are mourning the tragic loss of a family who perished in a horrific car accident on Monday.
Married couple Sarah and Jennifer Hart and their family of six children became well-known as the Hart Tribe, traveling around the country offering free hugs at festivals and political events in an effort to promote unity.
The two women and their three children Jeremiah, 14, Abigail, 14, and Markis, 19, were found in the family SUV when it plunged over a Northern California cliff. Their other children Devonte, 15, Hannah, 16, and Sierra, 12 are believed to have been with them, but their bodies have not yet been recovered.
Zippy Lomax expresses disbelief:
“They were really radiant, warm, adventurous inspiring people. They were always on some grand adventure, and the kids were living this life that was kind of like this dream,” He added. “The family was this very self-supporting unit that was impossible to miss. When they showed up to an event, they made an impression. They shattered a lot of norms and they did not shy away from controversy or adversity.“
Clementine Ford’s reaction is muted:
Ford was, however, much more forceful in condemning the egregious 2016 actions of father Damien Little, this while a police investigation was ongoing:
A man drives his car off a Port Lincoln wharf and into the deep waters below. In his vehicle he is transporting three things. The first is a rifle with a telescopic sight. The second and third are his children, with barely five years of life between them and no more to come. The father hurtles his car, rifle and baby boys off that wharf at a speed so great, it immediately plunges more than 30 metres down. It takes six hours for police divers to retrieve the three bodies (and “bodies” is what they are now) and the rifle, which is carefully bagged as evidence for an inquest that will happen at a later date.
Police confirm they are treating the incident as a murder-suicide.
Over the next 24 hours, and likely for days beyond, media stories about this investigation will reference it as a “tragedy”, and with the loss of two baby boys it cannot be anything but. But what they will also do is write glowing reports about how wonderful this man was. They will interview the people who knew him, the neighbours, the football club members with whom he played and laughed, and they will construct a public image of him as the quintessential “top bloke”. People will express their astonishment that something like this could happen.
This criminal act that the police are investigating as a murder-suicide will be carefully repackaged as a tragic accident that came like a hurricane out of nowhere and whose purpose must consequently be surrendered to as an act of God.
Whereas “model” Lesbian parents Jennifer and Sarah Hart were, unlike Damien Little, known to abuse their adoptive children they got a free pass, perhaps because of their LGTBIQ status. Men, however, are inherently evil.
