Long Beach Police Ramp Up Enforcement of Lewd Act Crimes

The local media reports that the LBPD has announced a task force to enforce 647A and 647D crimes in the city. The police department released its intenetion to target offenders that commit lewd acts in public restrooms and loiter for the purpose of engaging in sex acts in public restrooms. Gay and Lebian groups have complained that the police unlawfully target gay men, police refute this allegation. Many local Long Beach Criminal Attorneys relate that most of the cases they see do involve gay men, but the city continues to deny any bias in the way the cops make arrests. In the past suits have been filed alleging selective prosecution.  Some of these Court cases have yet to be decided.
