Diners at a Wauwatosa, Wisconsin restaurant were discussing same-sex marriage on Monday evening when a homophobe got violent and assaulted 3 people.

Then the argument got physical. Surveillance video shows the man, who had just joined the debate. He throws “Jorryn” down to the floor and then punches another customer. The suspect continued yelling, throwing chairs and punching people.

He walked out of the restaurant with some restaurant patrons thinking he was going to get a weapon. He returned to the restaurant, not with a gun, but throwing ketchup bottles and anything else he could get his hands on and then he left.

It’s been five days and noone has yet been arrested in the case, despite video surveillance of the restuarant. Wisconsin LGBT leaders are asking for the case to be identified as a hate crime.
