In a small seaside town in California on October 12, 2008, 14-year-old Brandon shot his schoolmate Larry twice in the head. Larry was a small boy who liked to dress in women’s clothes and was partial to make-up. This shocking incident, which in fact took place in a school room, drove the small community over the edge causing a media frenzy in a search of an explanation. Was it a hate crime by a budding neo-nazi, was it a personal insult gone wrong or was it an innocent flirtation that turned into a tragedy? Or was it something much more complicated than any of that?
