This is just vile.
Palm Springs Police Chief David Dominguez resigned from his position yesterday after it was revealed that he had made anti-gay slurs this past year during a sting operation that targeted homosexuals in the Warm Sands neighborhood!
The 2009 sting was also subject to controversy. Police asserted that it was in response to the public's complaints about drug use, public sex and prostitution in that area, but many residents retaliated by claiming that gay men were being unfairly targeted.
In the pre-trial hearing, video surfaced of Dominguez making homophobic remarks about gay people, and also saying:
“What a bunch of filthy mother fuckers. You guys should get paid extra for this."
We're just thankful that he had enough sense to resign after that kind of behavior!
There's no room for bigotry when you're in that kind of position!
