Bashing The Victims

(note: The ads at Towelroad aren't always work-friendly. You might want to save the links below for home clicking.)

A few months ago, Towelroad posted about victims of a gay bashing, in Rochester, NY, who were taken into custody as police let the perpetrators go free. Imagine suffering an assault and having the police take you in as they set your attackers free. That's what LGBT people face.

Now Towelroad reports that a citizen panel has found the victims' charges against the police legitimate and that the police chief has admitted to mistakes concerning in the incident.

It's hard to feel good about justice that's been delayed due to homophobia.
