I can't believe it's an actual thing.

A lot of very crazy things are proposed by defense and prosecuting attorneys in criminal courts. It is an endless source of WTF. This is maybe a 4/10 on the courtroom crazy scale.

Nice.

It's better to keep a calm head and press charges for rape by false pretenses

Google "twinkie defense" and read the history. Gay panic is as reasonable as any other lame excuse for murder.

Oh, by lame, I mean simply using "my" fear and "who he was" to rationalize why I killed him. There needs to be a better reason than "he was Gay."

"he might have had a gun" seems to work well for cops
