Fort Worth Raid Update
A reader writes:
Just wanted to give you a heads up - the breaking news here in Dallas is that both the Fort Worth Police and TABC are releasing their internal investigations into the Rainbow Lounge incident today.
Unsurprisingly, both the FWPD and the TABC are reporting that none of their officers used excessive force or inappropriately targeted a gay bar for a shakedown. None of the officers involved from the FWPD will be fired; two TABC agents were already fired. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that some of the officers involved will be "disciplined" for such dire infractions as not turning in their incident paperwork on time. In other words, "Johnson, you get me that write-up of yesterday's queer hunt, or I'll have your ass!"
Disappointing, to say the least.
