Hate Crime in Indiana?

New Bloomington Alternative series to explore Aaron Hall murder

by Denise Travers

NB: Read the original article in The Bloomington Alternative which ignited attention and controversy in the blogosphere around Aaron Hall's murder.

Aaron Hall was a petty criminal with a long arrest record. He was a meth user and an alcoholic. Over the course of his life, Aaron had spent nearly 10 years in prison or in jail, in stints from a few months to a few years.

But, like the fortunate among us, Aaron nevertheless had people who cared deeply about him. His mother, Martha. His brother, Tom. His daughter, Dae Z Mae. His friends. His former lovers. There are many who can share tales of Aaron's generosity and kindness. Aaron’s humble Uniontown gravesite is lovingly festooned with flowers, award ribbons, cards and a lone cigarette; the grave bears no stone yet, just a simple aluminum marker. Terrifying visions of Aaron Hall’s spilled blood will remain in the memory of many – those who witnessed his beatings first-hand, and those who are haunted by their own terrible imaginations.

Regardless of his criminal status, regardless of his seemingly dissolute life, regardless of whether his murder was a hate crime or not – Aaron Hall did not deserve to die the way he did.
