In Colorado, a lesbian couple was victim of a crime of hatred in the city of Parker.

 

Aimee Whitchurch and Christel Conklin discovered the message "kill the gay" paints on the door of their garage and the following day, they found a noose at 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," told Aimee Whitchurch to KWGN 2, "The noose is where it really became shocking and scary."

But it does not mean Whitchurch and Conklin will give up and leave their house, the couple decided to answer and put up signs on the garage door that read 'We will not submit to hate' and 'Don’t cover it, solve it.'

The police decided to increase patrols in the neighborhood and investigates.
