Examiner.com reports that a Houston police sergeant is under investigation for anti-gay comments he allegedly made prior to the city’s Pride parade last month:
The high-ranking officer said the complaint alleges that the Special Operations sergeant was preparing to leave the police station when he was heard telling officers under his command that it was time to go for “f—ing up some fag–ts” and he said some “fags are going to jail tonight.”
The story notes that Houston has a lesbian mayor, Annise Parker, who pushed for LGBT police officers to be allowed to wear their uniforms while marching in this year’s parade. But it’s not the first time there have been complaints related to police at Houston Pride: In 2009, HPD Mounted Patrol officers were accused of harassing spectators and participants.
An internal affairs investigation into the sergeant’s comments is ongoing, according to the story.
