After having his car vandalized four times, Jordan Addison said it would cost $2,500 to fix the damage. And Addison says he believes he was targeted for being gay.

But the manager of a local auto shop stepped in and not only repaired Addison's car for free but also enlisted the help of several other auto specialists to give the car a substantial upgrade.

He estimates the total value of the new parts to be over $10,000.


Story & Video

This is a feel good story to me, Frakkin dirtbags trashed this guys car because of his lifestyle, which is deplorable in my book. What someone does behind closed doors is their business, who are WE to judge how someone lives their life, then to attack that person because he is who he is?
I hope these jackwagons get caught and get a through beatdown.

I agree with you and feel that this is a good story... well... until the dirtbags come around again and vandalize it again...

I gotta say your wording is horrible and I could troll you so hard right now. But wont.

Good Day sir!

And good on those mechanics!

I really need to go to sleep!... I read this initially as "Vagina auto shop fixes bullied gay teen's car for free" I was stumped for a spit second


I'm glad we still have people in the world like the owner of that shop....Goodnight!

Most of the mechanics I know are bikers, home mechanics, rough around the edges and quick with a dirty joke...and these guys have no problem with a gay kid in need...So why should anyone else?

He's not just 'GAY'...he's a kid that is being bullied and needed a helping hand.

So glad someone could see past the label.

Peace

Thanks for posting this. It's good to know that there are some good people left out there


Not to dampen the mood,but something tells me they shouldn't have mentioned the cost of what the upgrades were...something tells me sometime soon we'll be reading about how this kid has his car stolen.


Yes,I know he's got a security system but it's still possible to be stolen!

the car repair says...

""Once I saw the vandalism that was done to it I said that's uncalled for we're gonna fix your car that's the least we can do," said Richard Henegar Jr., manager of Quality Auto Paint and Body."

More likely free advertising! All vandalism is uncalled for and all caused by hate of one thing or person or another...they going to fix the young welfare Mothers car too, cause it was vandalized!

People get picked on for many things, being too tall, too short, too ugly, too good looking, big feet, red hair, freckles, the list goes on.. but if their picked on because theyre gay or a minority, its a hate crime and they get free stuff.
Pretty stupid imo

Very nice.

Good for them.

Bullying is wrong for anybody, plain and simple.

Hey, what a great story OP. I love how the hate of small minded bigots result in the victim actually coming out of this whole thing in substantially better shape BECAUSE of the abuse directed at him. What a fitting way to shove it to the people who attacked him through trashing his vehicle.

Let that be a lesson to the hatemongers. All that work to hurt someone may actually help them more than doing nothing at all and each just going about their business like decent people.


Thanks for a story with a real twist to the norm of abuse and victims these days.

How much does anyone want to bet that the perps are christian, and most likely members of the local sports team?
Maybe they should all get together and go down and picket this garage for helping a sinner...that is the christian thing to do, isn't it?
Are the mechanics at the garage athiests?
They must be if they support such a godless lifestyle...
Unfortunately, their lack of morals in general can't be disputed because of this one incidence of random kindness, now can it?
Surely, as a previous god fearing poster stated, it is merely free publicity....

The Holy Bible: King James Version. 2000.

The Gospel according to
St. Matthew
7

Judging Others
Lk. 6.3738, 4142
1  Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2  For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Mk. 4.24
3  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6  ¶ Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

I've never yet heard of someone having their car wrecked because they've got freckles.

A guy at my college was murdered for being gay, though, he was pushed onto an underground line, straight in front of a train. He didn't get any free stuff, as far as I know. I guess that was a hate crime.

A lot of people didn't go to his funeral, being gay wasn't well accepted in the 1970's. I still think about him from time to time, he was such a laugh in class, I remember once in science we'd run of a tripods so he balanced his experiment on this vast construct of books, he managed to set fire to the lot with his bunsen burner & the whole school got evacuated.

His Mother was distraught at the funeral, I've never seen a woman weep so much.

His name was Ryan, he would've been 46 y/o this year.
