  1. I see, the West Midlands Police will pull out all the stops and raid a Gay Pub on the say of an anonymous letter. That’s commendable of them.Funny though how that poor young man, Mr. Woodhams, who was slashed acorss the face then weeks later murdered by the same scum didn’t get any sort of police protection whatsoever?Frankly, I think the Police Service should hang its head in shame!

    Roberto, I second that, its nothing more than homophobia, plain and simple. Now we know why a hate crimes law is necessary, despicable what happened.

    The thing is that this particular Police Service has now shot themselves in the foot really. Anytime they go near a gay pub or club they are going to get this little disaster thrown in their face by the local authority…and rightly so.
