Anti-Gay Actions Of MI Asst. DA Condemned

LANSING, MI - The Michigan Civil Rights Commission has unanimously passed a resolution condemning the conduct of Assistant Attorney General Andrew Shirvell. This individual has been targeting Christopher Armstrong, a University of Michigan student.
"The Commission believes such conduct should not be tolerated from anyone, let alone a public official responsible for representing all people equally. The Commission is also concerned about the scope and nature of the involvement of this individual in the execution of the work of the Office of the Attorney General," states an excerpt from the resolution.

The resolution also noted, "The Commission stands with all individuals, particularly younger people, as they face the trauma of bullying and other dangerous abuse."

In addition, the Commission called upon the legislature to put public safety first by passing the proposed comprehensive hate crime and school anti-bullying bills currently before the Michigan Senate.
