Nashville Police Target Gays in Stings

Since the fall of 2004, officers at the Hermitage Police Precinct have been quietly conducting a sting operation exclusively targeting gay men… The precinct’s crime suppression unit, which operates as a mini vice squad, has been working with at least one confidential informant who has been infiltrating gay chat rooms, contacting users and seeing if they’re interested in exchanging drugs and cash for sex. Later, they’ll lead their targets to a local apartment or hotel room where Metro police lie in wait. No informants are working straight chat rooms with the same purpose.

    WTF is it with Tennessee? De-gaying camps, and now police raids on gay bars? Is it 1952 again?

    As if I needed any more proof that I need to get out of Tennessee. This both enrages and embarrasses me.

    They must not have any rapes, burglaries, murders, car thefts, etc, in Nashville if they have time to harass people for having consensual sex.
