Weird Criminal Law 126

Queens, NY: A prominent gay activist was tackled and beaten at a Queens nightclub because he was dancing with a man, said police in December 2009. Tarlach MacNiallais, 47, who is a spokesman for the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization, was punched and kicked and had a chair smashed over his head in the attack by two security guards at the Guadalajara De Noche restaurant. The bouncers allegedly said before the attack, “You can’t do that in here, this is not a gay bar.” The attack is being treated as a possible hate crime.

You think? The headline on this one read “Bouncers bop gay dancer.”

Sounds shocking! Shocking I tell you.

She must be quite a performer….
