'Hasn't Fort Worth's image been damaged enough by this raid?'

As we anticipated, the city of Fort Worth is receiving another round of horrible national publicity over its decision to move forward with prosecutions of Rainbow Lounge patrons. Here’s a sampling of what some national LGBT blogs are saying:

From Queerty: “As if the Texan city couldn’t bungle its Stonewall-style attack on the gays even more, prosecutors filed charges against Gibson and another civilian for their actions that night. … This is a nightmare for the two men charged. But if their legal bills can tolerate it, it will be a nightmare for Ft. Worth Police, the TABC, and their sympathizers.”

From Joe.My.God.: “Good for the two men for refusing a plea deal. This bullshit needs to go to a VERY public trial.”

From Towleroad: “Hasn’t Fort Worth’s image been damaged enough by this raid? Now they’re prosecuting the victims? Despicable.”
