The headline pretty much sums up the response I’ve been hearing to news today that the city of Fort Worth is moving forward with its prosecution of patrons arrested during the Rainbow Lounge raid, including two who were injured while in police custody.
In other words, the city is willing to throw away all the good will it’s worked so hard to build in the LGBT community since the raid — over a few $500 fines.
It’s just a matter of time before protests are organized to call attention to this decision. The only question is, has the city learned enough in the last eight months to recognize what a horrible idea these prosecutions are and drop the charges before it’s too late?
