(CNN) -- Three MASKED men allegedly bound a woman and carved words into her skin, police in Lincoln, Nebraska, said Monday.
The incident has been classified as a hate crime because a derogatory term for lesbians was painted inside the home, said Officer Katie Flood, a spokeswoman for the Lincoln Police Department.

I can think of few more reprehensible comments than yours. No one deserves to be assaulted in such a manner.

Nobody really knows the whole story here, who knows what she did.... Maybe she didn't do anything at all to deserve this but, maybe she did... Just because she happen to be lesbian or whatever reason they put that, doesnt mean its a attack on the whole 'gay community'.. It looks more personal... Just sayin...

Rape is a very personal thing. I agree even when it's a stranger. I have a feeling this woman has run into one of these dirtbags before though. 'We found you' would be a rather odd thing to paint on the wall if this were completely random.
My best guess? One of these little punks hit on this woman, were shot down and couldn't deal with it. I have a feeling she will know exactly who did this, it just may take some time to get over the trauma and piece it together. At some point she caught someone's eye, and she was probably aware of it.
Read a really good book called 'The Gift of Fear'. I would recommend it to anyone. It discusses how we usually know the attack is coming, or at least who would have done it. First person that pops into your mind, even if it seems outlandish is a god bet.
Either way, string 'em up by their toes when they get caught. I want to get all internet toughguy but there's really no point.
One thing you have to give props to the LGBT community for is unity. They seem to be good at coming together (shutup) and helping out when some atrocious thing like this happens. I hope she gets all the support she needs. What an awful thing to have to go through.
