This article reeks of police officers who were disgusted by being in a gay bar and any physical contact, as minimal as shoulders brushing, would have set those backwoods clodhoppers off. If some drunken college chick had groped one of them, they would have gladly accepted that and more probably. Drunk people, gay or straight, grope other patrons. It fucking happens. If a bar brawl is breaking out, people are fleeing, swinging, ducking, etc.
If they didn't want gay people touching them, they should have stayed the fuck OUT.
I hope the man they injured is ok, and coherent enough to get a soulless, vindictive, sadistic attorney.
