Ft. Worth Police Play Blame Game with Texas’ Alcohol Commission


And so it’s come to this. In the aftermath of the Ft. Worth Stonewall-esque bar raid on the Rainbow Lounge, the Ft. Worth Police are cutting ties with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission until an internal affairs investigation sorts out who, if anyone, was at fault during an “underage drinking crackdown” that left Chad Gibson in the hospital. What’s more, Police Chief Jeff Halstead (pictured) might make those officers involved in the raid — who claimed the patrons they tried arresting made sexual advances to them during the raid — take “multicultural training.” This wouldn’t have something to with all the media attention and pressure from local lawmakers, would it?
