    So he accepts the raid was wrong. Fine. But one person was left seriously injured. Have the officers responsible been charged with assault or attempted murder or whatever the approprita charge would be. Talk is cheap. The officers responsible for the assault need to be held accountable for their actions.

    Homophobic police officers are simply no more acceptable than a peadophile primary school teacher. Those in charge have got to stop making excuses and get rid of coppers who are prejudicial.

    When are authorities going to start genuinely rooting out the homophobes in police uniforms?

  3. The police will only take notice when the lawsuits start coming in from everybody who was in the bar at the time of the raid.

    I’m sure the guy who ended up in hospital feels a lot better for the apology.
