The Truth About Mathew Shepard

Journalist Stephen Jimenez was very brave to publish his book The Book of Matt, an investigation into the life and death of Mathew Shepard. Shepard, murdered in 1998 , is well-known as a “gay martyr” since LGBT activists seized on his death and immediately made out that he was a vitim of “homophobia”. Large-scale anti-bullying campaigns in schools have used him as their poster-boy and these campaigns are getting hundreds of millions of dollars.

They circulate posters  of  Matthew with the slogan “Stop the Hate”. But there is no hate apart from what they are spreading : hatred of the truth.

Even before Jimenez, there were several attempts to get the truth out there. In 2004, an investigation by ABC news came to the same conclusion as Jimenez: they discovered the real story after talking to his murderers, now in jail. Shepard was involved with a gang who were using and dealing in drugs. He was killed by another gang  member after a dispute about drugs and money. 

And both of them were homosexual. Aaron McKinney was a known homosexual. Shepard was working as a rent-boy to pay for drugs.

While CBS and NBC ignored yesterday’s expansion of the federal definition of hate crimes to include sexual orientation, ABC’s Charlie Gibson reported it, explaining that the amendment was “named for Matthew Shepard, a Wyoming college student killed 11 years ago, because he was gay.”

It’s true that the amendment, attached to a defense spending bill was named for Shepard, but Gibson ignored his own network’s investigation of the Shepard case that revealed sexual orientation was not the motive behind his murder.

ABC’s “20/20” investigation in 2004 found that drugs fueled Shepard’s brutal murder, not “homophobia,” as is widely believed. Aaron Mickinney, who fatally assaulted Shepard, told ABC he was high on methamphetamine during the attack and it was the drugs that sparked his rage, not Shepard’s sexual orientation.

Anchor Elizabeth Vargas reported that Shepard’s friends promoted the idea that Shepard’s sexuality was the key factor in his murderer’s attack. “Just hours after Matthew was discovered at the fence, and before anyone knew who had beaten him, Walt Boulden and Alex Trout, friends of Shepard, began spreading the word that Matthew may have been attacked, because he was homosexual.

Cal Rerucha, the prosecutor in the case, confirmed Vargas’ words. “They [Shepard’s friends] were calling the county attorney’s office. They were calling the media and indicating, “Matthew Shepard is gay, and we don’t want the fact that he is gay to go unnoticed,” he stated. 

Rerucha also told ABC he didn’t “think the proof [of a hate crime] was there” and “it something [Shepard’s friends] had decided.”

Ben Fritzen, a former police detective and one of the lead investigators on the case, told Vargas it was drugs and money that motivated the attack on Shepard.

“Matthew Shepard’s sexual preference or sexual orientation certainly wasn’t the motive in the homicide. If it wasn’t Shepard, they would have found another easy target. What it came down to, really, is drugs and money and two punks that were out looking for it,” he told ABC.

Despite what law enforcement had to say about the murder, Shepard’s friend Walt insisted to ABC, “I know in the core of my heart it happened, because he revealed he was gay. And it’s chilling. They targeted him, because he was gay.” (Common liberal think; “I don’t care about the facts. What matters is what I feel is true.”)

Shepard’s death was a terrible tragedy, and nobody deserves the treatment he received that night. But to ignore evidence about the true motives behind his murder  to push a political agenda, is at the very least irresponsible. >>>

Even the left-wing press is starting to wake up to the true facts. In England in 2014 the Guardian published an article “The  Truth Behind America’s Most Famous Gay Hate Murder”

<<Matthew’s drug abuse, and the fact that he knew one of his killers prior to the attack, was never explored in court. Neither was the rumour that the killers knew that he had access to a shipment of crystal meth with a street value of $10,000 which they wanted to steal.>>

The so-called gay martyr was a drug-addicted prostitute who diced with danger. And he found it. 

Even the left-wing press is starting to wake up to the true facts. In England in 2014 the Guardian published an article “The  Truth Behind America’s Most Famous Gay Hate Murder”

    I read Stephen Jimenez’s book and have thoughts. Before I do, with M.W. Shepard, you wrote something wrong in another post on Shepard when you wrote ‘Later that night, high on drugs, they went on to kill another victim, a heterosexual. But the press ignored that, inventing a story about so-called “homophobia”.’ They did NOT kill another victim. That said many things to say on this, because I read the Book of Matt.

    With any murder, assault & battery, etc. the only person who knows why they do it are the perpetrators and possibly the victims. Only AJ McKinney knows why he killed M.W. Shepard. It’s best to avoid speculating on why it happened and limit to what we know. You wrote about the alleged sexual relations which Book of Matt mentions. AJ McKinney was a junky who damaged his brain from drugs and is possibly retarded. TIf true that sex relations happened between Shepard and McKinney , toxicologists could debate that AJ McKinney did not understand what he was doing because drugs had damaged his brain and thinking.

    If a person is so impaired by drugs and alcohol that they can not understand what they’re doing, then they can not consent to sex, which would make it rape/sex abuse. For eg. a retarded person or a sleeping person can not consent to sex. A case could be made that Metthew Wayne Shepard sexually abused AJ McKinney if it’s true they had relations while AJ McKinney was high on drugs, as a case could be argued that AJ McKinney could not understand what he was doing. Juries have convicted men of raping and sexually abusing women after the men had sex with drunk women and the juries decided that the woman’s judgment was so impaired by alcohol and or drugs that she could not understand sex. But other thoughts to this.

    Since Book of Matt was released in 2013, others have verified main things of Stephen Jimenez’s book-that AJ McKinney & Metthew W. Shepard were acquaintances & the fact Metthew W. Shepard assoc. with drug dealers in Wyoming & Colorado. Dennis & Judy L. Shepard have been arrogantly dishonest about who Metthew W. Shepard was by trying to censor Stephen Jimenez.

    2nd man R.A. Henderson should have gotten a jury trial & a jury should have decided what to convict him on. Prosecutor could argue why it’s Murder 1, defense can argue why it’s lesser charge of 2nd Degree Murder or Manslaughter & then jury decides-that is as far as I go with his case is saying he should have gotten a jury trial. Stephen Jimenez has said that there should’ve been a jury trial in RA Henderson’s case, as this is what RA Henderson wanted but his lawyer gave bad advice. Prosecutor refused to give RA Henderson any plea bargains other than to Murder 1 which was the prosecutor’s right.

    RA Henderson’s defense lawyer must have known or should know that in a high profile murder case as Shepard’s, the judge likely already decided RA Henderson’s punishment. In these cases, it’s best to have a jury decide what to convict on to try to lessen damage. If there were a jury trial, then jury would’ve decided what to convict RA Henderson on.

    With a jury trial, RA Henderson had a chance. RA Henderson could still have been convicted of Murder 1 and gotten life. But it’s also possible jury could have convicted RA Henderson of lesser charge such as Murder 2 or Manslaughter. RA Henderson would still have to spend many years in prison if convicted of lesser charge of Murder 2 or Manslaughter but if this had happened, he has a parole possibility. RA Henderson’s lawyer gave RA Henderson bad advice by telling him to plead guilty to Murder 1 rather than have a jury decide which charge to convict him on.

    I don’t know why the murder happened & I don’t know if Metthew W. Shepard was a drug dealer which is why I say possible drug dealer-Metthew W. Shepard could also have been a courier or lookout. Metthew W. Shepard was a child molester because he had been a victim of homosexual child molestation & repeated the molestation as a 15 year old boy when he molested 8 year old boys.

    Metthew Wayne Shepard (1976-1998) was not the innocent as he has been portrayed by Laramie Project or films like Shepard is a Friend of Mine. Metthew Wayne Shepard was a junky who assoc. with drug dealers in both Colorado & Wyoming, was possibly a drug dealer himself (Methew Wayne Shepard could also possibly have been a drug courier or a lookout) & when he was 15 years old, he was arrested for molesting 2 boys & he got counseling by Natrona County Juvenile Court for molesting 2 boys.

    Other things to add to my last post. Again, when you discuss the Shepard case, it’s best to avoid discussing why 1 thinks it happened because in any murder case, only the killers and possibly the victims know why. Just discuss what we know and what we know about Metthew Wayne Shepard (1976-1998).

    after Metthew W. Shepard’s murder, most people who knew ugly facts about him were shy as they don’t want to sound rude by talking poorly of dead-families of the 8 year old boys who Metthew W. Shepard molested were shy because they likely guessed the same thing. In few cases where people tried to tell ugly facts about Metthew W. Shepard, the journalists ignored them or they were condemned for talking bad about the dead. Witnesses who spoke to Stephen Jimenez likely thought that because Stephen Jimenez is a gay journalist, that they can tell ugly facts about Methew W. Shepard w/o being condemned.

    Judy & Dennis W. Shepard push ‘queero worship’ of Metthew W. Shepard . They have gone to schools to speak being invited by teachers & kids have posed for pictures with Dennis & Judy Shepard. Many of the pro-gay teachers won’t tolerate students giving facts which offend them & if a student were to say to Dennis & Judy Shepard that Metthew W. Shepard’s a child molester, drug junky & possible drug dealer, they could get punished by teacher.

    The teachers support free speech right for students to pose for pictures with Dennis & Judy Shepard-the parents of a dead child molester, drug junky & possible drug dealer but they oppose free speech right for students to say ugly facts. There have been cases over students getting punished by teachers for giving views against homosexuality which offended the pro-gay teachers.
    Dennis & Judy Shepard hope that people who agree with them reinforce them while those who differ be shy or if they speak censor them. If Dennis & Judy Shepard are invited to speak @ a school, then kids should have a right to tell ugly facts about Methew W. Shepard though Dennis & Judy hate it.

    Clairethinker-as you know the Shepard case is old but still shows up in news and has been talked about by Shepard’s friends and family for too long. This case should have ended after his killers were convicted and sent to prison, though I think the 2nd man RA Henderson should have had a jury trial. The people involved in the Shepard case including law enforcement, has been too personally involved for years, where their friendship has meddled with facts.

    In case you did not know, the bicyclist AC Kreifels who found Metthew Wayne Shepard tied to a fence has had other problems such as AC Kreifels being a drug junky and in 2016 Aaron C. Kreifels was convicted of drug dealing, see this article http://journalstar.com/news/local/911/judge-sentences-man-who-found-matthew-shepard-on-gun-drug/article_5f3f6290-f37c-5be1-92b7-fe325441aed6.html

    As you see, though its unsurprising, Aaron C. Kreifels and his defense lawyer (well the defense lawyer’s doing a job) exploits the Shepard case with the argument that because he found M.W. Shepard tied to a fence, that it excuses AC Kreifels being a drug junky and drug dealer.

    Other things about the Shepard case is that policewoman Regina D. Fluty (Reggie Fluty) who freed Methew Wayne Shepard’s coma body from the fence has since been a friend of Susan C. Burk, Laramie Project Coordinator. Ex-cop Regina D. Fluty and Sheriff David S. O’Malley know that it’s best for cops to avoid cases where a friend & or family member is a crime victim or crime suspect and that it’s best for cops to avoid making friends with crime victims & the criminals. When this happens bias can meddle with facts which differ.

    Ex-policewoman Regina D. Fluty and Sheriff David S. O’Malley have condemned Stephen Jimenez’s Book of Matt or Matt Book, esp. Sheriff David S. O’Malley. Their comments sound like their friendship with Susan C. Burk and Judy L. Shepard meddling with facts. Sheriff O’Malley & Ex-policewoman Regina D. Fluty can talk of what they found in murder investigation-both should only talk of the limits of what they found & the murder trial. Both should say that they did not find in murder investigation proof that Methew W. Shepard was a drug dealer. They should only critique Stephen Jimenez’s investigation on what they found in murder investigation because Stephen Jimenez found things which the court didn’t know.

    Sheriff David S. O’Malley and Ex-policewoman Regina D. Fluty know as cops or former cops that you don’t always know the secrets a person has and that most criminals try to keep their crimes secret esp. from friends and family as they don’t want to be caught. Sheriff David S. O’Malley and Ex-policewoman Regina D. Fluty know that it’s unlikely Methew W. Shepard told his friends and family that he was a drug dealer, because both have seen many times as cops as how criminals usually keep their crimes a secret esp. from their friends and family.

    Even if Methew W. Shepard did tell his friends and family that he sold drugs, don’t think his family will admit this ugly truth about him, as they hide the fact that Methew Wayne Shepard molested 8 year old boys and got counseling for it. I don’t think Sheriff David S. O’Malley and Ex-policewoman Regina D. Fluty are honest criticizing Stephen Jimenez as bias is meddling with facts especially again as Sheriff O’Malley is a friend of Judy Lynn Shepard. Since Book of Matt was released in 2013, others have verified main things of Stephen Jimenez’s book-that AJ McKinney & Methew W. Shepard were acquaintances & the fact Methew W. Shepard assoc. with drug dealers in Wyoming & Colorado.

    When I read a gay (transexuals are mutilated gays/lesbians and they must abolish sex changes) bashing case in the news, I wonder what the journalist view reporting this on homosexuality/lesbianism ? I also wonder if the journalist is a homosexual or lesbian and if so, are they setting aside their bias and reporting the news with no problems ? I do not trust news that I get from Daily Kos or the Huffington Post on their coverage of gay bashing cases because they predictably make the homosexual look like an innocent victim no matter what wrong the gay does.

    First again-stalking, harassment, indecent exposure, assault & battery (forceplay), etc. are crimes just by themselves. But they can easily worsen to something more violent.

    -If a gay grabs a man’s butt, groin, etc. against will, the homosexual is committing assault & battery or forceplay even if people use mild words such as unwanted….. If a homosexual man is trying to commit a more serious crime such as pedophilia, the first things a gay does is that assault & battery or forceplay. It’s same way that if a man is going to rape a woman, the 1st things he does are grab a woman’s boobs, butt, etc. against will or forceplay. If a homosexual wants to commit molestation-Stalking, indecent exposure, assault & battery or forceplay, etc. are often the first crimes a homosexual does before he molests.

    -If the gay (some cases lesbian) is high on drugs such as cocaine & or meth while committing indecent exposure, stalking, etc., then the homosexual can commit a more violent crime incl. murder in a drug rage after committing indecent exposure. Stalking, indecent exposure, etc. may not be the only crime which the homosexual intends esp. if he is high on drugs. Think you know that when gays & lesbians commit sex abuse, the first thing they do is commit indecent exposure, grab a person’s genitals against will before doing something more violent.

    Proposing (straight or gay) in your house, singles bar or @ a private party is in most cases legal. The right thing to do is say no and leave. If a man is a guest in a gay man’s house and the gay man proposes, the right thing to do is say no and leave because it is the gay man’s house and the gay man did not commit a crime when he did the proposal so the right thing to do is leave the house. However, repeatedly proposing after some1 has said no is criminal harassment.

    If gay man repeatedly proposes such as follow the man around after no has been said, then the homosexual is committing criminal stalking and the man has a right to end this abuse. If a homosexual is going to commit indecent exposure, then it’s a crime and there is no need for a man to say no to a crime the homosexual had no right to do. & there is no need for a man to say no to a homosexual who is proposing to him in a public restroom because public restroom is not a house or a bar and it’s illegal to ask others for sex in public restroom. Public restroom is the place to use toilet and wash up not a place for sex.

    Again if it’s true homosexual committed indecent exposure, harassment, stalking, etc. before men reacted violently, then the fact the homosexual committed a crime before he was bashed must be decided by jury in deciding if gay basher(s) used reasonable or excess force. I would rather have a case where a jury decides if a man’s reaction to bashing or killing a homosexual is justified or excess vs. the man doesn’t do enough and the gay does something worse. Most men and boys who are victims of gays usu. won’t call cops to report that a gay is committing indecent exposure, harassment or in worst cases molestation until some1 reacts violently and bashes the gay.

    Even the pro-gay sites Huffington Post & Queerty admit that gays, lesbians & transexuals (mutilated gays/lesbians) are more likely to be drug junkies as you can see these 3 links

    links omit violent crimes gays, lesbians & transexuals commit while high on drugs. If the gay (some cases lesbian) is high on drugs such as cocaine & or meth while committing indecent exposure, stalking, etc., then the homosexual can commit a more violent crime incl. murder in a drug rage after committing indecent exposure. Stalking, indecent exposure, etc. may not be the only crime which the homosexual intends esp. if he is high on drugs.
