Brits Are Freakin' Nuts!

Here's the latest politically correct absurdity from Great Britain.

Firemen who shone their torches at four men they found having sex in bushes have been disciplined by their bosses.

The crew spotted the men engaged in illegal 'dogging' - outdoor sexual activity with strangers - on parkland known as the Downs in Bristol late one night.

After embarrassing the men by pointing their torches at them, the crew continued on their way to their fire station.

One would imagine that that would be the end of the incident and hardly worth mentioning -- except, someone complained that the four-man crew of Avon Fire and Rescue were homophobic. As a result, all four were suspended for three months and ...
Yesterday it emerged that two have been fined 1,000 each, another demoted to a rank which will see him forfeit a similar amount of money, while a fourth has received a stern written warning.

It is believed Avon Fire and Rescue plans to give the money raised from the fines to a gay rights charity.

Among those being considered is the Jamaican Forum for Lesbians All-Sexuals and Gays.

The crew have been transferred to other stations and ordered to attend an equality course.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but a torch is a flashlight, right? And the firemen aimed a flashlight on some men engaging in public sexual activity and then walked away. For that, they get suspended, demoted, transferred and fined! That's outrageous!

It's not my preference to bash the Brits but, in this case, it's warranted. You're all freakin' nuts! No person should ever be punished just because some homosexuals were embarrassed. If so, the government should be canned for embarrassing the entire population of the United Kingdom. And, whoever is in charge of Avon Fire and Rescue deserves a size 12 fireman's boot to his cushy, politically correct arse for not supporting his men.
