LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles sheriff's department is investigating claims by the American Civil Liberties Union that gay inmates have been mistreated at a county jail.
The A-C-L-U claims about 20 gay inmates were forced to remove their clothes in a busy hallway July 19th at the Men's Central Jail while being called names and taunted with vulgar sexual language by some deputies.
The A-C-L-U wants anti-discrimination training for all deputies.
Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said jail supervisors launched an investigation two weeks ago. He said the department's Equity Oversight Panel, which investigates discrimination allegations against sheriff's employees, is also reviewing the claims.

Those poor felons.
gay ones at that.
I just want to make it clear that I dont condone what these guards are doing. The main reason I posted this was to prove a point. I hear the argument all the time about robust freedom of speech. I hear from the left that ALL speech must be protected or it all goes down the drain. I hear this in defending and sympathizing with our enemy, sex offenders, pedophiles, and burning the flag. But when it comes to gays, pro-lifers, and those of other races besides white people then it doesnt apply.
It's clearly agenda driven.
Abuse? These guys pay to stand around naked in bath houses. They should be charging the gay inmates for the experience.
Sounds lie a real party...
like a real party...damn my keyboard is being bad today.

I condone bad things that happen to bad people, and good things that happen to good folks. Details don't concern me in the least.
I have a buddy who was locked up in county jail for a week. he said the first 2 days he had to stay in the segregation unit because of overcrowding. He said it was a big party in there, dancing and frolicking all day long and at night he couldnt sleep because of all the load moaning and grunting noises all night long.
Yeah, I would think that the segregation here would protect them. But then again isn't it somewhat making otherwise straight people in danger. What I mean is that someone that doesn't want to be the b word ends up being one instead of someone that would.
OH the horror, don't these guys stand around naked in bath houses or rest stops? What's the difference? ACLU disgusts me, if these were just regular white guys no mention of this would be made. Damn the ACLU to hell!
Disgusting, damn sodomites!
I thought the essence or nature of jail is abuse itself?
I mean freedom vs jail?
If that's all they got, they got off light.
NO PUN INTENDED.
lets have the gay inmates abuse the ACLU!
I swear I laughed OUT LOUD when I read the headline to this thread...
Jail sounds like a busman's holiday for them.
