Well isn’t this great news to wake up to: Charges against some eight Atlanta Eagle employees — arrested in September on charges of, uh, being gay or something — were dismissed because prosecutors didn’t have the evidence to convict the four staffers and four dancers of anything. [Fox 5]

    Any information about a possible suit? False arrest? Assault and battery (by the officers)? Civil rights violations? Illegal discrimination? The great majority of police officers are good people, and are just as disgusted at these “raids” as anyone else. If the violations by officers can be prosecuted, it can get the bad cops off the force, and can help the good one to stay that way.

    With the several recent incidents of police “raids” on gay bars, it might be a good idea for bars to have video cameras. Many kinds of businesses use them, so they can have some evidence after an incident occurs. That evidence can help to defend injury suits, or in these cases, to prosecute the bad cops. The cameras can be discrete, so most patrons would not notice them.
