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.
