I don't know what to think about it. Obviously, sexual activity in public places is illegal. These are public parks that need to be safe for all people. As the police chief said:
“Our parks are for family use. People should not be exposed to this while they are out there with their family or trying to enjoy the walking trails,” said Johnson City Police Chief John Lowry. “They are not built nor maintained for sexual activity, be it homosexual activity or heterosexual activity.”Yet the public shaming seems excessive to me. The article stated:
"According to officials, all of the cases will be 'vigorously' prosecuted."One would hope that the officials would be as vigorous in prosecuting hate crimes and discrimination against homosexuals.
What do you think?
