Jamaican Cops To Get Gay Friendly

Finally, some good news from Jamaica!

The Caribbean nation typically comes up with regard to homophobic attacks. This morning, however, we hear that the Deputy Commissioner of Police is mulling a new program to train cops how to handle the homos. Said Mark Shields:

I think there is a place for minorities, whoever they are, to have the opportunity to speak to recruits during their initial [Jamaica Constabulary Force] training. Diversity is something that needs to be embraced. Therefore, the only way to do that is to train police officers so that they are no longer just citizens with a view and with prejudices.

The move comes after international activists – including Metropolitan Community Church – came out against the island and its apathetic government.
