Atlanta Police Raid Gay Bar Just Because They Wanted To

“I hate queers,” a cop said. Other officers — some plain-clothed, some uniformed — walked around the bar demanding to know who was in the military, threatening to report them to their commanding officers. “This is a lot more fun than raiding n_ggers with crack!” Du-Wayne Ray heard one white officer say this to another; other cops were high-fiving each other. The search and seizure uncovered nothing. No drugs. Not even a joint. Finally, the men were ordered to leave but without their cell phones, wallets and other personal belongings. Not a single man was arrested. Or given an apology. Or given a reason for why they were held against their will.
