Just curious. How did this make it past the notability guidelines? As far as I know, Owen's death did not get major media coverage, spark large protests, or catalyze new legislation. I have written up a much longer entry of this hate crime on my own site (I won't link to it here, because I've gotten trouble before about linking to a site of my own making, but if you google Sean Ethan Owen, you'll find it.), but have not posted it here because I thought it would not be noteworthy enough.TerranceDC (talk) 17:24, 2 August 2008 (UTC)
