Heads Up Listing

4537 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 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.

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.

Of course I am a royal bitch but whoever posted this should burn in hell. My best friend lives at those apartments and she(he) told me they are very vigilant to the cocksuckers this ad brought to their premises. Hello girls, this is a private family oriented residential property! There are plenty of places to find dick in El Paso. Don't get into the mouse trap.

Sorry Mr. Editor but I am always looking for my girlfriends.

The State Police seem to be cracking down again. I went in there to urinate. There was nothing going on but I did notice a police cruiser in the back.

When I left, another had pulled in the front and then I noticed a third behind the truckers. I left thinking I was OK but then two or three miles down the road, I got pulled over on a "marked lane violation."

The officer gave me a polite warning to be careful in there as there is criminal activity going on.

Over the years I've been full on naked in that parking lot at night, sucked a lot of dick, and watched guys show off. But ever since the Med Men store opened, the parking lot is full of their employees and security guards hanging out.

Also, the cops just did basically a raid, parking in the lot and harassing men as they return to their cars from the bar or stores in the area, telling guys that some woman in the neighborhood has been videoing what's going on there and threatening to arrest them. Who knows if that's true, but what I was told is they were quite convincing.

But then guys were back in their cars waiting for dick within a week. Technically, the sheriff's department isn't supposed to arrest men back there, just give them warnings. But you never know...

I went there this weekend and the place was mostly dead.

There was a Black guy 6'2" asking the few patrons there for money. One dumb guy gave him money to leave him alone and he still kept bothering the guy. Once the guy left because he didn't feel safe the hustler said he was going to beat him up for not giving him more money. The rest of the people and I left after that.

This most be one of the hustlers that used to be in Vihan's Video on 8th ave and 41 St., Manhattan, NYX after they closed down. That place was full of only hustlers.

Two weeks before this weekend there was another hustler asking for money to buy drugs. Stay away for your own safety.

One last thing the place owner is now bothering clients. People can no longer go in the booths together.

The Sheriff's Office is cracking down on sex in public parks, including this one, already well-known for undercover sweeps and arrests. On October 18, a man 'exposed himself and asked the undercover detective if he liked snakes, according to an arrest affidavit. The word "snakes" was code for asking the detective if he wanted to engage in sexual acts, according to the report.' His name, photo, and other information was on local TV.

'According to Sherrie Morgan with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, within the past year, 16 people have been arrested for soliciting lewd activity from undercover deputies in county parks.'

There is also additional information on the September arrests, which included four men and one women charged.

Josh, I am so glad you got a hand job. Monday I was cruising around 5 pm at the basement. Actually I was sitting at the stairs. A female undercover cop came with another guy, probably another undercover and asked me for an ID and questioned me what I was doing there. I told her I was waiting for a friend to get out of class. I do not think she believed me at all.

Not worth the risks. The janitors know all that's happening there, especially the older guy that works evening. The truth of the matter is most dicks I suck at Liberal Arts are small and smelly. Time to move on. With the apps you can find better meat.

Guys should be very careful with this park. I was there after dark today shortly after reading the tip by Ixai.

After cruising around parked next to a guy that I thought was looking for action, a Blatino in a car with doors open. He was very verbally abusive as I approached him and called me all kind of names from fag to queer. He told me that place was very much a family park. He threatened to call the cops and took pictures of me and my car!

Sad to say not a place to be on CFS in my humble opinion.

Police visited the toilets Wednesday, October 3 after an uncle with his 12-year-old nephew walked in on twelve men having sex here.

Edinburg Evening News wrote:
A notorious city centre gay "cruising" spot has been raided by police after reports of lewd behaviour in broad daylight in front of appalled visitors.

Officers were seen banging on cubicle doors and questioning men at the public toilets at the foot of the Mound shortly after 3pm on Wednesday...

[According to the uncle,] One man was "crouched down at another’s groin" while up to ten more were pleasuring themselves. "I just quickly walked out," he said. "Luckily I had my nephew over my shoulder facing the other direction. I was just so taken aback."

...A member of the gay community told the Evening News he saw police making their way up the steps of the loos on Wednesday afternoon.

"Two guys were being questioned outside but there was a crowd of guys that came running out just as the police went in."

...A council spokeswoman said: "The council employs a mobile squad of attendants who visit and clean public toilets around the city seven days a week, as has been the case for some time. Any inappropriate behaviour witnessed in public toilets should be reported to Police Scotland."
Queerty wrote:
"A Police Scotland spokesperson says: "Police in Edinburgh were called to a report of lewd behaviour around 4.20pm on Wednesday 3 of October in The Mound area of the city centre. Nothing was detected, however inquiries are ongoing."

Although no one was arrested, care and discretion are advised.

The former Salem city councilor appears to be part of a larger vigilante network of tea party losers stalking cruisers.

Recently, I took an early evening trip from Salem to Cambridge and someone intentionally backed their car toward me as I walked through a parking lot near Casa Cana on Soldiers Field Rd. He made a veiled reference online the next day.

They may be paying riffraff to stalk and assault presumed cruisers. I know a guy who was stalked out of the Salem Library one night and assaulted by someone who falsely accused him of being a child molester. The assailant used to live in a local shelter that the former councilor has been involved with. He's been wanted since skipping his criminal trial in March but Salem police still haven't gotten around to bringing him in.

Though I can't mention his name, I'll just say it's a bald guy who fits the bill.

Visiting Houston last Thursday I went by about 1 pm. The parking lot was overflowing, which is unusual for most of these places. Then I saw why.

A cop car was at the front door, men were being led out in handcuffs. I figure a bunch of individual plainclothes police drove up, went in, watched the action for a while, raided the place and brought in the prowl cars to take guys away.

I don't live in Houston, didn't see any reports on it online, but I absolutely saw it. Be careful. I'm glad I wasn't there half an hour before.

A member of the gym claims "he was nearly raped in a steam room by a fellow fitness enthusiast — but the luxury gym refused to report the incident to cops or even give him the creep's name, according to a new lawsuit." According to his lawsuit
Equinox employees have known for years that their "members were engaging in orgies, indecent exposure, masturbation, sexual assault, sexual harassment and lewd behavior in the men's steam rooms" — yet ignored it all...
The gym says it has a "zero-tolerance policy for any inappropriate behavior" and would revoke the memberships of those involved in indecent activity.

Separately, at the Wall Street location (not on CFS), a member was arrested for lewdness and public exposure after jerking off while staring at a club employee in the steam room. The employee "claims he was encouraged not to file a report... Equinox faces lawsuits from dozens who claim the company ignores lewd behavior, and even sexual assault, inside its steam rooms."

This employee was subsequently let go, with the employee claiming it was because he spoke out and Equinox claiming it was because he did not follow company PR protocol for speaking with the media.

It is possible that surveillance or other charges or complains may occur at other Equinox locations.

So I was at Columbus Park last week on Wednesday and was sitting on a bench. A couple minutes passed and a guy with bike shorts and a t-shirt was walking around looking at me. He went around me twice and headed towards the river through the bushes. I knew what that meant and I followed him.

He was already naked when I reached him. He had a condom in hand and I stripped completely nude. He fucked me hard. All of a sudden a guy was looking at us with a hoodie and we stop. We asked him if he could leave and all of a sudden the guy who fucked me pushed me and took all of my clothes. The hooded guy followed him after.

I was completely naked and didn't know what to do. After an hour of hiding naked and trying to figure out what to do, a couple nearby was having sex and luckily they allowed me to use their cellphone to call a buddy of mine. Thankfully my buddy came with extra clothes. Just a heads up be careful because this was around 2 pm.

Sleepy Hollow - Spruce Creek Preserve
In a two-day sting operation, Volusia County Sheriff's deputies arrested eight men at Doris Leeper Spruce Creek Preserve and Sleepy Hollow Park. Names, photos, ages, and hometowns were publicized in local media.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office conducted the operation after receiving several complaints from residents about nefarious activities taking place out in the open. Capt. Shane Summers, who joined [Sheriff Mark] Chitwood during Friday's media conference, said many of the sex acts were performed in proximity to the walking trails at the parks. He also said some of the suspects were having sex a mere 20 feet away from the parking lot.

Chitwood said undercover detectives were walking along the trails and being solicited for sex. In one case, the sheriff said, a detective saw three men engaging in a sex act with each other.

Deputies said they captured some of the criminal activity Thursday with video cameras.

Chitwood said it was shocking that such "depravity" can happen in a place where anyone, including a child, could easily walk by and witness it.

"When you watch the videos, it is disgusting... I can’t believe this is happening in plain view."

In May, the Sheriff's Office installed still surveillance cameras in the parks, Chitwood said.

Also, "We have photos of at least 50-75 individuals engaged in lewd and lascivious acts directly in front of the cameras," sheriff's spokeswoman Laura Williams said. "We are in the process of identifying these individuals for potential charges and trespass warnings."

A former student currently in jail faces additional charges for planting a video camera in the mens' room here:
...investigators say they discovered he had planted a hidden video camera in the men's restroom at the Thomas G. Carpenter Library this past spring.

Police say from that camera they were able to identify seven new victims that were completely unaware they had been recorded.

WOKV told you back in April when [the man] was initially arrested, for allegedly trying to extort sex acts out of another student, by threatening to release nude photos of that student. At the time, [he] was charged with intent to compel and unlawful use of a two-way communication device.

Then in July, police announced they had found a hidden video camera in a bathroom in Osprey Fountains residence hall, leading to eight counts of video voyeurism against Martinez.
In all, he now faces "25 charges, not including a violation of probation from Alachua County." Obviously his name and photo were publicized in local media.

A police officer saw a 65-year-old man masturbating in the park. He arrested the man for indecent exposure. Unlike many other incidents, the man's name and other information was not reported in the local media.

There were also reports of police investigations in 2017 of sexual activity in the park. From the stories, it was not clear whether it was gay, straight, or both.

The road leading to the area of the recent arrest has been closed by County Parks officials.
Lake County Parks and Recreation also requested extra police and staff patrols because of recent incidents, [a spokeswoman] said.

"We aren't here to pass judgment on anyone's lifestyle, but a public park absolutely isn't the place for the types of behavior that have been reported," she said. "We do allow alcohol in a public setting, but even that comes with the expectation to do so responsibly."

The parks department has been working closely with the Sheriff's Department, she said. Officers who help patrol Deep River Waterpark will head over to the county park regularly or whenever an incident is reported.
The article goes on to mention several recently reported incidents which did not result in arrests as well as a 1998 sting operation at the location.

Was here last Sunday August 7 in the afternoon and saw police cruisers and park ranger vehicles parked on both sides of Regents Road. They were walking the trails.

The primary reason for this is that we are not cleaning up after ourselves. There are empty condom packets, used condoms, empty lube bottles, used tissues, empty beverage containers, etc. all over the fucking place.

What do we think is going to happen when the park rangers see all this trash?

It's an awesome place to cruise, and have seen several hetero couples playing.

Please let's take care of it!
