Cleveland Police Department: Faggots Don’t Deserve to Wear Pants
A gay couple is suing the Cleveland, Ohio Police Department for, among other things, unlawful arrest, violent assault, public humiliation, and denying the couple pants.
Jonathan Simcox and his partner Steven Ondo claim that a police officer out of uniform stopped the couple on the street in the middle of a lover’s spat before throwing them on the ground and punching them in the face until they were covered in blood. The two men were arrested, but later released after being found not guilty of committing any crime.
About a week later, things got worse. Fox8 reports:
According to the lawsuit, “6 or 7 members of the SWAT/and or Warrant Team” were on a sweep that day. Ondo and Simcox said officers then informed them they were wanted on a warrant that was issued for, “assaulting a peace officer.”
“The officer in the glasses grabbed me by my shirt, and punched me twice in the face, after he punched me, he threw me up against the wall,” said Simcox.
Simcox says at the time of the arrest, he and his partner were wearing only underwear and t-shirts. When Simcox’s brother asked police if he could get them some pants and shoes, one of the officers allegedly responded by saying, “You can go get them shoes, but faggots don’t deserve to wear pants in jail.”
The lawsuit states that the men were ordered to stand outside in their front lawn for five to 10 minutes while they were publicly humiliated.
Ondo and Simcox were taken to jail and according to the lawsuit for, “at least one whole day their repeated requests for pants were denied.”
Shame on you, Cleveland PD. Shame and lawsuits!
Seeing as how the couple has already been found not guilty, it sounds like the Cleveland police responsible for this hateful episode will soon be coughing up a fat wad of cash.
What do YOU think? Do faggots deserve to wear pants?
