The Violent Gay Bar Police Raids Sweeping Jamaica

Jamaica’s Montego Bay just scored their own Atlanta Eagle: Just after midnight last Sunday, police raided the only gay bar in the area’s Hip Strip, with some 20 “heavily armed ” officers bursting through the door before screaming anti-gay slurs while hitting and pistol whipping the patrons, demanding they leave, according to Jamaica Forum of Lesbians, All-Sexuals and Gays. This probably caused more than one drink to spill. The raid followers a similar one on a Kingston bar earlier last month. Ten individuals required medical attention. Police, meanwhile, have offered no explanation for the raid. Maurice Tomlinson, a gay rights activist there who works with J-FLAG, says his life has been threatened after a letter-to-the-editor about the raids ran in the Jamaica Gleaner.

      Boycott. It seems obvious – any gay person who visits Jamaica is an idiot.

      There needs to be more worldwide attention brought on these homophobic countries and make them take responsibility for their disgraceful actions.

      @John – Tampa:

      Seriously. Why would any gay person, or any thinking person for that matter, willingly give this miserable little shit hole their money?

      Even if you ignore a principled boycott, you’d be an idiot to go there anyway, for personal safety’s sake.

      Homophobes really have a poor grasp of the English, and really anything comprehensible, language.

      @HATEFAGS: Bitch, don’t you dare talk to Francis like that! Here:

      “Exquisite gay man, are you comprehending my last comment? Please perform fellatio on an erect penis of significant girth. Horrid person………I am currently laughing hysterically at my anonymous comment, which attempted to insult a random person and the whole of gays everywhere but was really a flaming hot mess of grammatical errors that showed what an idiot I am, even though I don’t know it.”

      There. I’ll send you the bill.

      I wonder how much you really hate fags, seeing how you are spending a fair bit of time at a gay-interest blog. I think you really like fags and that’s why you are here.

      Living vicariously through others?

      Two consistent “eat a dick” comments means you either don’t have much of an insult arsenal, or that you really want to get down on your knees and suck cock like there is no tomorrow.

      I’m betting you want to suck one long and hard…….

      So true, OrchidIslander. Seems he is very obsessed with c**k sucking. Oh well, just cross another one off the self-loathing list. And the laughing at your own comment just reeks of needy self-validation.
