Heads Up Listing

This section for alerts is the place where we help one another learn about current police operations and other forms of bashing.

When you submit a tip on any crusingforsex.com Sex Listing, you can indicate if it belongs in this section by selecting the 'Head's Up' option. Throughout our Sex Listings pages you may find this notation, 'Head's Up'. This indicates that we have reports of police action or bashing at that location (as if there is a difference between bashing and the police!).

To read legal opinion about the civil rights of cruisers, we suggest the resources of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund and the American Civil Liberties Union.

Lambda Legal's undated 2000s version of their Little Black Book is excellent and deals directly with the rights of men who cruise, although there is a changing legal environment regarding cruising in some parts of the USA. The Lambda Legal link changed. It's also on Google (1993 version) at Little Black Book and the more recent version is in our archive. También en español..

The American Civil Liberties Union has a wallet-size guide, applicable to citizens of the USA, that deals with how you should respond whenever you encounter the police. This version is from 2010, and it applies with this 'Heads Up' page revision, October 2015: You can download a the 2010 version of the card from their Website. La ACLU también tiene esto sin la tarjeta en español. This link also changes, and you can find the English-language card in our archive.

A sting operation responded to "complaints from residents about lewdness at community parks." One man was arrested and charged with indecent exposure Friday, July 1 by Harris County Constables. His name and photo were shown on local TV news and newspaper websites July 6.

He also resigned from his job as a school bus driver. The deputy he had approached in a park restroom was an adult and there is no allegation of any inappropriate activity with children.

Two were arrested here July 1, 2016 and charged with public indecency for "performing lewd acts" in the parking lot. The names and addresses of both men were published in local media.

At least ten men have been arrested in an ongoing police operation at Farrington Woods Park. Names and photos along with their age and town where they live have been publicized in several local media stories. Per the second story, "Police have now beefed up patrols at the park."

Seeing a follow-up story in a news feed about a sex offender having his probation revoked alerted me to a series of sting operations here earlier in 2016 that led to 34 arrests in the Willmore Park restroom from January through at least April.

KMOV: Convicted sex offender accused of lewd conduct at South City park, July 23

KTVI: Sex busts in St. Louis park bathrooms lead to surprising plea deal, April 28 This includes photos of the restroom and a screenshot of a post from another site, but which one? Most of the men received plea bargains resulting in suspended sentences or minor charges and their names might mot have been publicized but for this story.

KTVI's follow-up Sex bust plea deals getting a second look after Fox Files investigation confirmed that at least 13 cases ended up with no public record, 8 were on probation, the remainder were still being adjudicated. Most of the men were said to be in their 50s with one 90 years old.

Riverfront Times: Fox2's Moral Crusade Against Gay Public Bathroom Sex Misses the Mark This criticizes KTVY for fearmongering about "the children" while providing no evidence of child molestation nor that any of the men were dangerous. KMOW shows now just one of the 34 was a previously convicted child predator, but not that the 1990s kidnapping case was related to Willmore Park cruising.

The county has "civilized" the beach. Formal camping areas. State Troopers, not the County Sheriff. Many arrests or tickets. Jun 21 2016

When law enforcement sees a number of cars in the parking lot, they set-up in the vacant lot area by the railroad track crossover. As guys come out, and back across the tracks to the parking lot, they are asked for ID and either given a warning or a citation for trespassing on railroad property.

This goes for both fishermen going to the water and cruisers. This is only going to get worse, as this track is scheduled to carry passenger train service in the next year or so.

This has been a great place to cruise back in the woods for years, maybe no longer.

Caspersen Beach
Caspersen Beach has become a place for the police to harass innocent people trying to enjoy the beach.

I was sitting on one of the benches on the boardwalk when a cop tried to pick me up to entrap me. He asked, "Dude, do you like to party?". I told him I knew he was a cop, and to move on and leave me alone! He got very defensive. I told him to shut his mouth, and he left. He was driving a gray Chevy Impala unmarked cop car.

So men, use your good judgement. Cops will lie to you to arrest youft instead of doing the job the hard working tax paying citizens of Sarasota County pay them for.


Thanks so much for posting this! I'm adding a "Heads Up" for this because I found news stories about a sting operation and arrests here and at Jelks Preserve back in April:

5 arrested for exposure in undercover sting at beach, park

5 Caspersen Beach, Jelks Preserve Flashers Arrested

Their names and photos were published, ages too. One of them was 84, three were in their 70s. Such a shame the police are entrapping the elderly instead of arresting violent criminals and preventing violent crimes. I've added a page for Jelk's Preserve because guys have been going there and the sting has happened. ~ Editor

Be forewarned, the state police have upped their patrols in the more common areas so caution is advised unless you want to end up in a police blotter somewhere.

The killer was the men walking through the woods dressed completely inappropriately for a hike. Guess what. When you walk through the woods in office attire, you're kind of conspicuous!


Thanks for the update! I'm adding a "Heads Up" to this, though I don't know if anyone's been arrested or warned by the police. As always, use good sense and be careful with who and what you encounter. ~ Editor

Sting operation netted five men on June 3, 2016. The men were charged with exposure in public. $750.00 bond. Names, ages, address and employer were listed in local paper. The sting was conducted between 6 pm until shortly after midnight. Use caution.


Thanks for the Heads Up! I found a story without the employers and also another story from March, 2012.

In the March story, the sting lasted two days and ten men in all were changed, one of them with "battery for engaging in sex acts in remote parts of public beaches and parks."

As it says, "Arrests for illicit sex acts in public places are nothing new for Martin County." ~ Editor

This place is still active according to an article on the front page of today's LA Times on growing concerns the public at large has with the few large police agencies targeting gay public sex.


The City of Long Beach has since decided not to appeal the court ruling on this case that sting operations unfairly target gay men. However, the city is developing a new policy on how to enforce lewd conduct laws.

"[Long Beach Mayor Robert] Garcia did not offer specifics about how the department might police lewd conduct in the future, but promised the department would strike a balance between enforcing the law and respecting the LGBT community.

"There will be incidents in the future where police officers will have to make an arrest if something is occurring, if something bad is happening in a restroom, regardless of this issue,” he said. “So we want to make sure that, if and when that happens, it’s being done in a way that’s appropriate and that’s fair and our cops have all the tools they need to both enforce the law and implement best practices."


This is a developing story. When time allows, I hope to update the Cruising 101 page about public cruising as well as the Legal Q & A: About Public Sex written years ago by Keith, the late founder of this site. Clearly much has changed both legally and socially.

As always, those who cruise in public places should take care.~ Editor

P.S. Delayed update, Nov 2016: The City of Long Beach chose not to appeal a Superior Court ruling that police stings there unfairly targeted gay men. There is also a Federal class-action lawsuit pending against the City.
