Eagle Raid cop defense: When I said that gay sex is violent, what I meant was that gay sex is violent

Image

Another officer disciplined — in this case, fired — for his participation in and conduct following the 2009 raid of the Atlanta Eagle went before the city's Civil Service Board to attempt to have his punishment overturned.

These hearings are snoozy (thanks for sitting through it, Jim Burress!), but this is entertaining.

See, the officer in question, Jeremy Edwards, was issued a 10-day suspension — this is on top of his termination for untruthfulness — for making a discriminatory statement, namely, that he thought gay sex was violent.

Here's how he explained himself today:
"My response was, Seeing another man have sex with another man in the ass, I would classify as very violent."

He added, "My personal opinion observing any sexual act is violent, whether it's straight or gay."

OK, so it's not discriminatory because this guy thinks ALL sex is violent. I buy it.

The untruthfulness allegations had to do with Edwards' denial that he'd taken and/or emailed pictures he took during the raid. Basically, he says he misunderstood the question . He thought the investigators were asking whether he'd ever emailed the picture — to which he said no — not whether he'd ever taken the picture. The board will rule on Edwards' case within 30 days.

It's a strange and beautiful thing when sitting through a third motherfucking hour of this show feels worthwhile. The actual finale? I don't know.

  • But, hey, she really loved Ghosts in the Graveyard.

It's a question as old as time itself: If you had to spend your life with either an adult baby or a banana-handed cyborg who makes a very literal "MWAH" sound every time he kisses you, which would you choose?

I came up with an answer that was unsatisfactory to my viewing companions, but we'll get to that later.

First, poor Chris! Just...

  • The best part of the whole episode



How's this for a coincidence: we send seven marginally employed single people and a shitty country duo called American Young to Belgium to dry hump on park benches and swap spit in a monastery's pottery barn, and then Belgium handily beats the U.S. in the World Cup. Everyone should pretend to be mad at The Bachelorette just like we're all pretending...
