    Terrible. I hope mainstream, fair-minded Americans will begin to recognize the lunacy that is the Tea Party…

  2. Laurie Bouche says:

    I’m the sister of a gay man, and I saw the picture of the cop choking this young person. In my state that constitutes an act so violent as to be considered attempted murder. I would make sure that this cop gets arrested or at least fired.

    DId you mean Brian Camenker? (Know your wingnuts.)

    While this activist is trans. They do not identify as female, just as gender-neutral. I know this person personally – please correct this.

    Looking at the visceral nature of his reaction to peaceful protest, my guess is this COP is wrestling with his own pent up GBT desires (especially those for his partner), and like Ted Haggard and all the other righties who hate the more they hide, he’s trying to cover his feelings by showing force.

    Perhaps since we have his badge number we can suggest counseling and coming out for him?
