Abstract

"City" piece on a hate crime in Portland on June 13 in which Jerry Boivin, perceived to be gay, was brutally assaulted by two white men. Alleged eyewitness Chris Albair of Portland who claims to know the men suspected of the crime, and also claims Boivin was drunk and hurt himself when he fell on the sidewalk. But police believe Albair is biased. At a June 14 police press conference, Jody Towson, regional manager for Preservation Management, a company located in the Lafayette Apartments in Portland, asked police to remove Albair from the building for yelling gay-related obscenities at bystanders, including Boivin, and boasting about how he would have finished the job on Boivin.
