How do the cops know they're gay? Unless they're engaging in illicit behavior. I got picked on by the cops when my girlfriend (now my wife) and I were in a park, parking. They told us we couldn't do that here. So we left.

It was reported on the news that two men that were holding hands were arrested.

What was the charge? They disrupted the public peace while getting all in the Cops face about being stopped? Or did they have open intox or MJ on their persons.......

How many hetero couples have been stopped while holding hands?

Unless the Sheriff's office can provide proof that all hand holding is considered "lewd or immoral" and it was treated that way, then they have a good case.

Today's LEO knows better than to arrest for hand holding as it would go to a Civil Rights Case. No, some other law was violated in front of the undercover cops...... Nothing to see here. Thanks KCSO for keeping lewd behavior away from our kids who use the park.......

It was also reported in the news that no one was arrested for holding hands. I'll believe the sheriff on this one, I don't think they would open themselves up for a lawsuit.

Pretty much, it's just the gays playing the "victim" card again.
