The defendant in the homicide case, Bruce Lavallee-Davidson, a gay man and an advocate of same-sex "marriage". The victim was also a gay advocate of SSM (and was apparently also into S&M, which may have contributed to his death by the defendant).
...because the defendant charged with the murder is a gay advocate of same-sex "marriage".
Oh, my... kind of a "sexy" story, ain't it? It's got all of these sensational ingredients... would make a helluva movie.
Ah. The murder of a gay person suddenly becomes not-news just because the suspected murderer is himself a homosexual. Interesting, that. You know, if the murderer was a straight person, we'd be hearing a LOT about this.
Obviously the Big Old Media doesn't want to inconvenience the militant homosexual-"marriage" movement with such inconvenient, and terrible, news. Apparently the Big Old Media considers the agenda of itself and other groups when deciding whether news is "newsworthy" and should be reported at all, or whether it should be reported properly truthfully, without suspicious factual omissions or obfuscations.
The shooting took place at dawn on April 18, but Davidson, a farmer and former school computer chief failed to notify authorities until about 8 p.m, after which officers found Wilson's body in his own basement.Yeah, riiiight. Talk about delusion.
Four days after the incident, Davidson and his partner, Buck, were testifying in favor of legalizing homosexual marriage in Maine, an effort that ultimately failed. The pair proclaimed they "were already married in the eyes of God."
According to the Record, which is published by the Civic League, "Despite the sordid nature of the crime, reports published at the time portrayed Wilson and LaVallee-Davidson as innocent as choirboys. To date, there has been no mention in the mainstream press of what actually happened in the basement of Fred Wilson's home in South Portland. Indeed, the mainstream press added to the confusion by reporting that the shooting was 'a kind of Russian Roulette' gone wrong."Ah. Protecting the very-special sexual extremist activists, always, no matter what, period. How Leftist.

South Portland Killing Jeopardizes Same Sex Marriage
The victim, Fred Wilson, was a fifty-year old computer specialist from Southern California who lived alone in a spacious, comfortable home near Willard Beach in South Portland. Wilson, LaValle-Davidson, and an unidentified third man, met at Wilson's home the night of Friday, April 18th. Sometime towards morning, Wilson was killed by a single shot to the head from a .44 caliber handgun. LaValle-Davidson waited until 8:00 p.m. on Saturday to call the police, allowing plenty of time for the crime scene to be altered.
The circumstances around the mysterious shooting are still unclear. At the time of the killing, it was reported that the gun used was a .22 caliber pistol, and that none of Wilson's neighbors heard a shot. Prosecutors stated that LaValle-Davidson, a former Technology Coordinator for M.S.A.D. 48, had taken drugs and had been drinking when he deliberately pulled the trigger. According to prosecutors, he did not know the gun was loaded, and for that reason was charged with manslaughter, not murder. Prosecutors also stated that LaVallee-Davidson and Wilson were involved in something like a game of "Russian Roulette."
Oh, gimme a break. Even a mentally-disordered nutcase on drugs can realize that a gun MIGHT be loaded and knows better than to point it at someone and pull the trigger! What, are gay people to be held to a lower standard than straight people when it comes to basic intelligence and common sense? Whatever the answer, it's clear that the defendant is a dangerous man.
In the eyes of their neighbors, Wilson and LaVallee were considered fine, upstanding members of the community. But there may have been a darker side to the events that Friday evening; and a picture is emerging that same sex marriage supporters may be desperate to hide. The RECORD has uncovered a document which shows that the victim, Fred Wilson, was a financial supporter of a museum dedicated to the sexual perversion of sadomasochism. In 2008, Wilson was a Supporting Member of the "Leather Archives and Museum" in Chicago. This naturally leads one to conjecture that the shooting that Friday night was related to sadomasochistic activity that got out of hand. If so, the damage to the carefully-crafted wholesome image of same sex marriage could be enormous.
The RECORD has previously reported on a sadomasochist group in Portland which marches in the annual 'gay pride' parade; and has shown that there is substantial cross-over between mainstream homosexual rights groups and the subculture of perversion.
Oh, of course... we must necessarily say that only a tiny, tiny minority of homosexuals are extremists and a danger to themselves and others... just like we must say so about Islamists. Kind of an automatic, politically-correct reflex response to be uttered as a matter of course whilst in polite, mixed company. Gotta say the right thing and not ask questions, beyond and extrapolated from this one incident, about the rest of the grouping to which the players belonged.
You know, if these folks weren't two gay guys, and were rather a man and woman who were devout Christians, you just know that the Big Old Media would be gleefully telling the whole world about it for a long, long, long time, top and bottom of each and every hour, and there'd be lots of fearmongering about Christians in general based on this one incident... And many Christianophobes would be going around falsely authoratively, with jutted chins, declaring that Christianity was a "mental illness" (actually, this has happened, believe it or not, and a man was substantially discriminated against because of such prejudice) and calling for legislation to further marginalize Christianity and anyone who is Christian...
Isn't it amazing how people look so fine, normal, upstanding and contributory to society, but once out of the Public/Media eye, they transform into something wholly different?
The true story is behind the scenes, not in the spotlight, most of the time.
