How Ft. Worth Police Helped Chad Gibson: 6 Weeks Off Work

chadgibsonvid

Chad Gibson, the 26-year-old who ended up in the hospital after Ft. Worth police raided the Rainbow Lounge Stonewall-style, has been released from the hospital after six days in ICU. Recovery now begins: “The injury will likely keep him out of work for the next four to six weeks. He’ll suffer severe headaches for the next two years, he said. Gibson is looking forward to recovering and returning back to work.” On the plus side, he can use that time to mount a civil suit against the police department.

      I hope he gets some of the best lawyers in the state of Texas and sue that city into bankruptcy for this travesty.

      @Dabq:
      Hopefully it’ll be a Federal civil rights case.

      It’s tough to win a case against the police. Anywhere.

      Gee? I just watched that Bruno movie trailer and I thought all homophobia was supposed to be funny?

      Why wasn’t there a straight guy doing a mincing accent to make light of the whole thing? You mean, abusive police and violent discrimination against gay men and ESPECIALLY lesbians still exist?
      Damn you Bruno for fooling me into giggling faggot complacency!

      And Queerty, is no one covering the two gay men in El PAso threatened with arrest for kissing in public?

      EL PASO — Two gay men kissed at a Chico’s Tacos restaurant, prompting guards to eject them and a police officer to endorse their ouster.

      Civil-rights lawyers say the security staff was out of line. Police, though, contend that a business such as a restaurant can refuse service to anybody, any time.

      In all, five men were ordered to leave the restaurant. They say they were forced out by homophobic guards.

      “It was a simple kiss on the lips,” said Carlos Diaz de Leon, a gay man who was part of the group.

      He called police at 12:30 a.m. June 29 because he said the guards and restaurant had discriminated against the group after two of his friends kissed in public.
