Heads Up Listing

4524 matching results for "Heads Up Listing, 1":

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 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.

CFS recognizes that there is an appropriate place for police to protect the public, including cruisers. However, we will report on enforcement of "victimless crimes" where cruisers are targeted by police.

Get the ACLU Mobile Justice App currently for 17 states and the District of Columbia. You have the right to record what happens with 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.

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

Fellsway Reservoir
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

Long Beach
Recreation Park
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.

Heads Up! I was in here a few weeks ago and a guy next to me was jerking off at the urinal. I was peeing.

About a minute later, security came in and started screaming for us both to get outside. I looked in confusion and said "OK, right after I pee." The guy went with them, but I just walked out. They kept telling me to come back, but I ignored them.

YMCA of Downtown Manchester
They do have a big sign warning against lewd behavior and how it will get one expelled or suspended.

This place has an awesome setup. Huge open shower, steam room, and sauna. Unfortunately the community here seems to use the steam room in a towel unlike other YMCAs. I have only seen some jerking here once.

Cops busted this place around noon today. They rounded up everybody who had their cocks out jacking and wrote them all tickets for "public masturbation." May 17 2016

Amazing Superstore
Guys, there have been reports of arrests at Amazing lately, so watch your backs!

Personally I have not seen any police action here, but it's all over other cruising websites.

I checked Google including Google News quickly and couldn't find any news stories about this. In many cities these types of arrests get publicity, although it depends on the media market and type of community.

It should be possible to use the Data Catalog in the City of Dallas Open Data Portal to verify this, but I'll leave that task for someone else. ~ Editor

Angeles National Forest
The police have been monitoring the Angeles National Forest more often. Apparently, the feds found illegal marijuana farming sites in public lands. Being just briefly there, a ranger told me don't be surprised if the DEA, National Guard, and even Homeland Security cover the area more often since it's federal land.

There is a forest fire restriction along with clearly more parking restrictions. If you go to their website under "Alert & Notices," there are all sort of closures into 2017.

On my way out, an attractive younger guy informed me that cruising was going on at the trails at nearby Crescenta Valley Park though. It was actually nearby.

Here's a link to the Crescenta Valley Community Regional Park. ~ Editor

Romantix San Fernando
This place is between the northeast division offices of the LAPD on the same block and a Denny's down the street where the law often grab a quick bite. Despite the tempting video booths and parking lot, you should be aware of the various monitoring cameras and self-asserting staff who're very friendly with their neighboring cops. If you want to get arrested, try cruising here. May 05 2016

24 Hour Fitness: Burbank Super Sport
The Burbank police are called here quite often. The staff will revoke your membership if they are suspicious of your activities in the steam room, sauna, or pool. There are a lot of families here with children and teenagers since their kids club hours go until weekday evenings and weekend afternoons. The crowd is straight and clearly isn't interested in gay sex. Why don't you just hire a criminal defense attorney if you intend to cruise here? May 04 2016
Saddle Creek Park
Two men were arrested here in an undercover sting charged with offering to engage in lewdness. One was also charged with indecent exposure. From a local news report including names, photos, and hometowns of the two men:

The Polk County Sheriff's vice unit was responding to complaints about lewd activity in Saddle Creek Park, Gator Creek Preserve, Fort Fraser Trail, Lake Fannie Boat Ramp, and Mosaic Peace River Park.

"We will continue to conduct operations like these, in an effort to keep our parks safe for families and children at play,” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “Our parks are not to be used for illegal activities. They are for others to enjoy, without fear of being victimized or witnessing illegal lewd acts."

See: Animal hospital owner among two men arrested for lewd act at park

There was a link up above on this page to the Polk County web site for this park. I just removed it. Clearly Polk County's authorities know what's happening in their parks, but it's probably wiser not to have incoming links from a gay cruising web site show up in their web site logs.

If y'all really need the link, I'll put it back using an anonymizing service. ~ Editor
