Way to Go, Santa Ana Sphincter Police

"There was nothing they could do, of course, there was no suspect and no crime had been committed. The officer said 'what it is, is a string on a door.' My vision got blurry, I was embarrased and felt stupid for making the call. I took a deep breath and said 'Do you see any correlation between the fact that this is a gay office and there was a noose left on our door in the wake of all of these teen suicides?' The officer said, 'Sometimes you just have to live with being a victim,' and proceeded to mention that his car had been broken into before."

I hope at the very least, that a report had been written up because it it seems to me that it was a symbolic threat. Maybe check for DNA? Maybe a little expensive but if something more serious happened in the future and they could link it back, it would pay off. It was no ordinary homophobic who did this.

On the other hand, a police officer more or less said the same thing to us when our car was stolen. Minus the personal crime report. I think it's just what they say when they have nothing to go on. Of course, his tone might have said much more. On the other hand, lawyers have been known to manipulate events in their favour too. Just sayin.

i HATE homophobes!!! i just don'/t understand why anyone would have a problem with gay men or women. So what if two guys are in love, why does it bother anyone. And people that say that being gay is a choice.
It's not, why would anyone chose to be hated and harassed. So stupid. Homophobia makes me so fucking angry.
