I'm Jenny and i came across this community not long ago. Reading Bryans story was rather sad. Knowing that someone judged him and ran him over for being different is awful. He sounded like such a great person with so much to offer.

anywho, talk to you later. have a good day

I'm new to this community. I've known about Brian's story for awhile now. It's aweful what happened to him. That shouldn't happen to anyone, especially for being themselves. It's fucked up. I know how close minded people can be, especially people around the sydney area and where i live.
I know how it is to get harrassed for being yourself and for being different. And how it can be harder to stand up for yourself and what you believe in.

Awesome community. You all rule for keeping Brian's memory alive.

Cya Sweethearts,

This is what's wrong with this country. And, this is why the fucking Republican leaders of this country are evil.
My wife and I are Texan Greaser-Punks. She saw this story on City Confidential just last night. I came home from my gig to find her crying. We are horrified by this story. Brian, we never knew you. I wish we did. We love you, man.


Remember Brian

We bought buttons. Please do what you can.

about 40 minutes ago, City Confidential ended. i was surprised to learn about this just now and not years ago. i was also sickened and saddened by the whole thing. i'm so glad my school was more tolerant. my prayers (and good wishes, for the non-religious) are with the family and friends and punk culture.

[ mood | good ]

My name is Jayden, I'm new to this community but I've known about Brian's story for several years now. In my junior year of High School I did a speech about Brian's death. Hopefully crimes like these will be prevented in the future. Brian seemed like a great guy.

Have a great day everyone!

did a speech [25 Nov 2004|10:18am]

I did it over Brian Deneke. I don't know what I got yet.I posted it on the message board of youthnoise.com. And now it's under the True Story of the main site for youthnoise. Here's the link to it:http://boards.youthnoise.com/eve/ubb.x?a=tpc&s=742299645&f=265299255&m=59510161763&r=59510161763#59510161763

That's the first time that something I've ever posted has been on the main site.I couldn't belive it.I was like wow.I told my mom and she looked at it and she couldn't belive it either.

I just found this place and had to join, this is my new favorite community. Brian rocks and his story makes me cry, I took a bunch of banners from websites dedicated to him and they're on my journal info and in one entry if you want them. I'm always looking for new friends, so add me.
Peace, love, and Brian forever

Woah, it's almost been a month since someone updated this... ah I gotta start more. Anyway, I made one icon... I'm trying to make more but livejournal fucking sucks and keeps saying, "40k under limit" or something like that, so I apologize if any of you in this community decide to take this icon and it doesn't work, if it doesn't just tell me and I'll try re-fixing it.

Oh yeah, that show that my friends were suppose to be performing on June 4th was cancelled... I'm sorry to anyone who I told that the show would still be happening.


I just made this too if any of you would like to put it in your journal or user info along with a link to promote this community.

Hey guys... I just found out about this community like 10 minutes ago, and thought I'd join. Another new member introduction. =P

I haven't known about Brian for that long, but I still cried my fucking heart out when I heard about it. Don't you think it's pretty bad Dustin eventually walked away with a $10,000 fine and probation? And from what I recall, his lawyer made Brian sound like a juvenile deliquient. I guess he was just doing his job, but damn, I don't know how someone could stand there and do the stereotypical thing about the bully-picks-on-the-outcast situation. You hear about it all the time... my friend was just telling me about how a bunch of jocky guys were throwing shit at him and his friends at the lunch table, but when my friend finally defended himself by throwing a little something, HE got in trouble for it. His school has camera systems all around too, and the table he was sitting at was like, right in front of one. In a way, it's like teaching people not to stick up for themselves.

I just thought I'd share a ramble. Heh, that had nothing to do with Brian really, but... yeah.

So, hi. That wasn't much of an intro, haha... sorry.

Hi, My name is Roxy and I'm seventeen. I'm kind of a "former" punk. I did the whole pop music stage then I used to be really into punk music and ONLY punk music, then I opened my eyes to other things. I guess I like everything now. I like diversity.

Anyways, I've known about what happened to Brian since wow, forever it seems. And it's always saddened me. I've given out well over 500 flyers in the past years with the help of my little sister Amber.

My little sister is a true punk, true to the lifestyle (I taught her well) and she's constantly being harassed for who she is.

I'm always worried she's going to be the next Brian. People are so ignorant to her. Everywhere she goes she's harassed.

One time she was almost ran over by a huge fucking van by some kids at her school and they laughed.

I guess I'm joining because I feel connected to all the kids in here who believe in spreading awareness, they say we can't change the world, but we can hopefully change the way people think.

I'd hate to think my little sister or someone else's little bro or sis could be next you know?

I guess I just wanted to let you all know a little why I'm so involved with spreading awareness.

I know this may sound bad, but my sister always teases me about my love for cadillac's. She said they are cars of the jocks and haters. But she says it in such a funny valley girl way. Haha.

Anyways, hi.

music community...(x-posted) [18 May 2004|04:16pm]

sorry for the whoring so to say of this new community, but i figured all of you into punk, reggae, oi, etc should learn that i started a new community dedicated to showing others what your favorite bands are and possibly even your own band, you can show picutres of the band/artist, yourself, icons, websites, etc. it -was- a rating community, but well we changed that so everyone is welcome, thanks!

I'm new to this community like alot of ppl here.. When i first heard the Brian Deneke story a couple of yrs ago.. I dont know. it affected me,and how i look at things, i might sound mean at times but at heart im not.. Brian deneke was the main reson for that i realised that being different was ok,and accepting those who are different was right.. And doing otherwise was just stupid.. It sux that someone had to die for what they were and what they believed in.. It shows us how ignorant the world can be.. None acceptance drove to this crime.. I think about brian alot,even more when i think about how much i hate ever being born,and how i sometimes think about joining the Cheerleaders and that group of ppl.. just so that i can be safe from harassment the next day.. After i found out about him i couldnt get him off my head,.He's propl. the reson why i havent sold out,the reson why i never gave up..
I thank him everytime for standing up for himself,and being HIMSELF.. Without ppl like him,im sure none of us would feel alright about being different.. I've cried so many times for him, everytime i look at his face,see his name or just when im being )(ritaculed), i always think of him, and thank him, his story has thouched me like you couldnt imagine.. No'one will be the same without him in this world sure he made a difference... We all wish he still was around.. But if he still was alive, we wouldnt be in this community now would be? most of us would've never heard of ppl like Brian,and we propl. never would've made it thru the day.. we never would've learn to be proud of what we are,and what we stand for...this all makes me sad.. that ppl cant express their view on things, without being beaten to the ground..
Thank you Brian and all those who have died for being themselfs and not just falling into line,like most of society does for the reson not to be harassed and being accepted in the majorities.. thats all i have to say.. I hope we can all start to learn from this crime.. that difference is no reson for murder, no matter how different your views might me..

anyways just wanted to tell you what i thought,,, i know i blah alot..
Peace.. Christina...

[ mood | calm ]

ok i just stumbled on this community, i had no idea it was here, i had heard about Brian's story when it first happened, and i think i cried for a week. it sucks so much that people can be so heartless. i have put up with a lot of crap in my time, but i am proud of who i am, and no one can change me, not even with some of the threats i have received from people.

a group of friends and i printed some flyers from the website, colored his mohawk blue, and placed them on cars around town. this is a small town in the bible belt, and a lot of people don't understand anything other than church and conservatism, i look like a freak next to my friends, but they love me, and they have helped me spread the word.

thanks to you for starting this community. i can't wait to see more.
