Do you think law enforcement officials take full advantage of the state hate crime law in connection with anti-gay bias crimes?

“No. I don’t think they take advantage of the laws to defend the community. There’s just too much violence.”

David Metoyer
Meeting planner

“Not at all. Every time something happens there is a big question about whether it is a hate crime. It should be a really simple yes or no.”

Tomm Reeves
Bartender

“No. They always drop the ball. They don’t fully investigate.”

Andy Castillo
Bartender-waiter

“I don’t think they do. I don’t see any evidence of it.”

Cris Wilkins
Bartender

“No. They don’t treat it as a very serious issue.”

Jennifer Cunarroe
Waitress
