Washington County, Alabama Sheriff Slurs GLBT community, refuses to serve and protect
Today, in speaking with the Chatom Clerk of Court, in Alabama, in relation to their refusal to issue marriage licences to the GLBT community, i was forwarded to the Washington County Sheriff.
Richard Stringer (D) • Washington County Sheriff, informed me: “You steers and queers need to stop calling here”.
When pressed on whether his office will serve and protect members of his community whom may be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered he replied :
“I told you dykes to stop calling here” when pressed he commented “you can readily accept that yes, we do not provide protection or services to queers”
When pressed again, and informed that his comments would be made public - he asserted :
“oh you can quote me on that, what you need is a good man to show you how a man makes love to a woman”
It would be reasonable to assume that the GLBTI members of the Washington County, and Chatom area he serves can expect no due process, nor fulfillment of their constitutional right to equal protection under the law.
I reached out one last time, before posting, to the Washington County Sheriff office for comment, as of this time no further comment has been afforded…
