Aussie Soldier Charged for Antigay Facebook Page


Police in Sydney have arrested a former soldier they say created a gay-bashing Facebook page to harass and threaten four members of Australia's Defence Force.

Police say the soldier, using the name "Steve Austin," created the page and used it to expose and intimidate Maj. Paul Morgan, two members of Sydney's commando regiment 2RAR, and another soldier. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the page "allegedly had links to extremely violent and pornographic videos on YouTube showing executions of homosexuals superimposed over images of Anzac Cove in Gallipoli and flag-draped coffins of dead Australian soldiers."

The page has since been taken down.

Major Morgan also received a graphic e-mail that said, "I will cut your homosexual carcass into 100 pieces to feed you to the marine life in Botany Bay."

The former soldier was charged with one count of using a carriage service (the internet) to threaten as well as using a carriage service to menace, harass or cause offense.
