QC Police Victimize Gay Men (again!)
For several years, the male sex workers parading around the Quezon city circle have been known to be in cahoots with a bunch of police extortionists. Late last year these police men were suspended when they were reported by a group of female college students they victimized after they hired an interview in their study.
And unfortunately, the police men and their male prostitutes accomplices are at it again. Here's an email from a recent victim:
my friend and i picked up 2 guys from qc circle for total sum of 800 for both of them to go all the way. When we agreed to take them in the car, they suggested a cheap motel in visayas avenue worth 150. To our delight, we followed their direction and low and behold, just 2 minutes in visayas avenue, a pnp vehicle was already hailing us to stop.
The cops wanted us to go to the police station because there was a supposed city ordinance that prohibited people from picking up "call boys". They said that we were to be detained for about a week, that their would be a media splurge and they would call our relatives. By the way, the bail is about 20000. To make it more dramatic, they said that jessica soho's crew is already waiting to take shots and the call boys, who were actually an accomplice, admitted bluntly that he was only 17 years old.
My friend instantly panicked and wanted to pay them off. The cops tried to make it seem real by insisting that we go to the police station, but in the end, agreed to return our id's and let us go if we pay 10,000 (5000 per person)
To be continued...
