ummm, the majority of these men - in "mens rooms' tryin to pick-up/have sex - are mostly hetero --- confident gay men - dont have to do that anymore, there is the internet, bars, grndr etc......straight men are the one's lookin for a quick fix in men's rooms, not to say NONE are gay - but - majority are most likely hetero...who just want BJ's

You might think the cops would have better things to do than hang around public shitters looking for lonely old bi/gay guys looking for a BJ. Publicizing their names, showing their pictures, possibly ruining their personal lives is particularly deplorable I think. Meanwhile San Leandro continues to be overrun with Section 8 garbage and transient garbage from Oakland and Richmond and the violent crime rate continues to escalate and people think twice about even going to Bayfair in the daytime. Nice to see where the priorities are though!

Shades of "Boys of Boise". History keeps repeating itself, with minor twists.

They used to be at the EBRP at the end of Neptune. I'd see them while walking my dogs. Disgusting behavior straight or gay.

Yeah and we all know what you and your dogs are doing in the privacy of your bedroom. Now that's really disgusting Sally! You should be ashamed of yourself!
