The Fort Worth, TX police had a special gift for the queer community on the 40th anniversary of Stonewall. They raided the newly-opened Rainbow Lounge, arresting and beating numerous patrons, gestapo-style, for no apparent reason other than for being gay.
One patron, Chad Gibson, was slammed to the floor so hard by the Fort Worth gestapo police that he is currently hospitalized with bleeding in his brain.
TABC (Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission) has confirmed participation in the raid. Protests have been scheduled to take place outside the Tarrant County Courthouse this week.
I will be following this story with updates as warranted.
