Next time a cop shows up to serve an arrest warrant on you, tell him he's a queer.
I'm sure they'd be just THRILLED with that little attitude. Roflmao
Next time you're in trouble and the cops come, ask if he or she is gay or not, if he or she ARE gay, then send them home and deal with your problems on your own.

Funny part is they would NOT leave and still try to help you since it is their sworn duty to do that, despite the hate that is flung onto them.

My house was burglarized and nearly $50,000 in cash and valuables was taken from a safe in my home. The burglars accidentally left behind one of their electric bills which I assume fell out of his pocket. I gave the bill to the Suffolk County Police, assuming they would track the culprits down since they had his name and address.

Along with the cash and other valuables stolen were also keepsakes such as my high school diploma, college diploma, a letter from my mother on the day my younger sister was born, keepsakes from my father when he was a boy, and other sentimental things.

Without explanation ever, the Suffolk County Police simply refused to investigate the crime, despite having written evidence of whom the burglar was.

In August, 1986, I got beaten up once by 2 guys (which in New York is a crime called "Gang Assault" and is a felony) while headed to the pizza parlor next to Pal Joey's (a famous gay bar in New York).

I got 3 busted ribs and cuts and bruises. Probably the only reason it wasn't worse, was that a bunch of guys from the bar saw what was going on, rushed into the parking lot, dragged me into the bar, locked the door and called the police. Before being taken to the hospital, at least a half dozen patrons of Pal Joey's said they would give a description of the assailants to the police, and testify if necessary.

Although the patrolman wrote a report, and gave me the name and phone number of the Nassau County Police detective who was supposed to investigate this beating, He refused to meet with me, speak to me on the phone, nor investigate the crime at all, despite several witnesses to the assault.

A few years later, at the same location, a person named Esposito was hassling and assaulting customers going into Pal Joey's. He chased and murdered one of the customers, Henry Marquez, who was a federal agent.

The D.A. at the time, Denis Dillon, wrote a letter to the newspaper basically saying that LGBT people deserve to be assaulted, because they are sinful and violating Roman Catholic teaching (THIS IS A PUBLIC OFFICIAL ! THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY !)

"In a January 6 letter to the editor of The New York Daily News, Nassau County D.A. Denis Dillon described gays and lesbians as engaging in "deviant disordered sexual practices which contravene Catholic moral teaching", and he applauded the organizers of the St. Patrick's Day parade for keeping out "militant homosexuals"."

At first, the D.A. REFUSED to charge Angelo Esposito with murder. The LGBT community began daily protests and a grand jury was finally convened. Because District Attorney Denis Dillon REFUSED to charge Esposito with murder, THE GRAND JURY FINALLY DID. The trial jury Esposito GUILTY in the MURDER of Henry Marquez, NOT manslaughter as the D.A. originally said he was guilty of, and Esposito was convicted of murder, and given the maximum sentence which is 25 years to life. And although this IDIOT MURDERER was married with kids, he apparently had nothing better to do with his life than hang out in the parking lot of a gay bar and hassle the customers.

In December, 1998, I was walking out of a Home Depot with a crowd of people as it was Christmastime. A car suddenly turned and drove into the crowd of people. The crowd scattered, but one person could not get out of the way in time, and was struck and injured and left lying in the parking lot, with a lot of people yelling and screaming. Guess who that was. A Suffolk County Police car and an ambulance came. The cop stuffed a field report in my pocket before the ambulance took me to the hospital.

After getting out of the hospital, I wanted to contact the vehicle owner's to file an insurance claim for

my hospital bill. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the cop wrote down the WRONG LICENSE PLATE number, and did NOT write down the owner's name address, or phone number on the accident report at all.

When I went down to the 5th precinct to get the complete and correct information, not only did the cops there refuse to give me that info, they threatened me with arrest several times if I did not leave the precinct.

I WONDER WHY THEY DID THAT.......

I'LL TELL YOU WHY ! I called the Suffolk County Police Internal Affairs Bureau, and they got back to me a few days later and gave me the complete and correct information, and told me the car was OWNED BY A COP !

In 1990, in the morning while I was at work, a loud explosion occurred on my street. Many neighbors rushed out to see what the cause of the explosion was. A man was lying in his car, dying, with his legs blown off. Somebody had put a bomb in his car. He was a Suffolk County Police detective, lived on my street, and was a member of my Lutheran church.

Because it was a bomb that killed him, a large number of agencies were investigating this murder, including, but not limited to: the Suffolk County Police. The New York State Police, the F.B.I., the A.T.F., and the D.E.A.

Despite a long investigation, NOBODY was ever arrested, nor charged in this murder. But Newsday named the chief suspect, and they must have had SOME evidence of his guilt because he never sued them for libel. The person that Newsday named was a Nassau county Police officer.

In 1993, my sister moved to Coram, about 8 miles north of me. Soon after, she told me that she felt very safe there because there were 2 police officers living on her street.

About 2 years later, one of the cops on her block, a Suffolk County Police officer was convicted in the attempted murder of his wife.

A year later, the other officer, an NYPD cop, was convicted of being a serial rapist.

Both cops on her block.(She moved).

I HATE cops.

STAY AWAY FROM COPS !

A couple of years ago, I participated in a rally to overturn Prop H8, and when I was leaving, I noticed the usual crowd of fundies and their hate-filled signs across the street. On the corner near me were 3 or 4 police officers, watching said fundies for our safety. I walked up to one, and asked her to escort me to my car. She was VERY glad to do so, and we chatted about our wives for a few minutes. I thanked her, got into my car, and came home.

What a charming story.

You should have exchanged numbers and maybe gotten a new friend out of the exchange.
