commented on Fort Worth Police Chief: That Faggot Had It Coming
I am a bartender in Texas- though not the DFW area... a more close minded area- SETX. I have worked many times when TABC has come to my bar and they NEVER "raid". There has to be suspicion of drug trafficking or something for them to "raid" an establishment.
This behavior by the DFW area officers is appalling. Not everyone in Texas behaves this way, thankfully, and something should be done about the ones that do.
I have no doubt that these officers stepped out of line, judging by the photos I have seen online. I have also never seen more than 2 TABC officers at once, because there is simply not a need- even in the largest clubs.
It is a big shame that more media stations are not picking up on this, and I will be doing my part by forwarding it to all local media outlets.
My heart goes out to those injured, as well as their partners and families.
