LOGO 'A-List' Cast Member Taylor Garrett Calls Police Over 'Gay on Gay' Hate Crime Four Days After Incident

Policereport

Yesterday I posted about Taylor Garrett, cast member on The A-List Dallas, and the alleged GOP-bashing hate crime against him.

Taylor has reportedly decided to call the police to report it, four days later.

  1. Funny. You'd think this would be the first thing you'd do, on the spot, the moment you discover it. Even before you post it to Twitter to curate drama and outrage.

  2. Bye bye, LOGO. Not watching that channel any more. I love my RuPaul and will miss her, but the way LOGO has used this and the possibility of an Ann Coulter appearance as publicity fodder . . . they are SCUMBAGS. Anyway, A-List New York was just vulgar -- and I can't imagine Dallas being more tasteful. Remember when us gays used to celebrate bad taste as camp? It was witty and smart. Well, there's nothing witty or smart about these A-List programs.

  3. Age 'M'????
    I would like to have a confirmation from the cops on this. Seems about as genuine as the note on that stone.
    I am a leftist, liberal gay, and I would never say 'twink'.

  4. I love how the right wing victimizes gays, women, and people of color, and then turns around claiming they are victims. Glenn Beck is whipping up hysteria about potential violence from the Occupy Wall Street crowd, forgetting that the teabaggers talked about "Second Amendment Remedies" and carrying guns to their rallies.

  6. Absolutely nothing suspicious about this whatsoever. People who are the victims of hate crimes always pick up the alleged evidence and handle it and take pictures of it to send out to the world via Twitter, and spend days and days telling anyone who'll listen the harrowing story of the assault but forgetting to call the police until people start to demand a police report because the story sounds so fishy.

    I'm sure the police are taking this very seriously and will put a number of their best investigators on it immediately. Filed under 86.

  7. (TEXAS) A person may be found guilty and punished by a fine up to $4000, confinement in jail up to one year, or both fine and punishment. Not to mention the Republicans using this against the gay rights movement... I hope for everyone's sake that the hate crime was real and not used to create buzz about a rotted TV show.

  9. Filing a false police report is a misdemeanor:

    CHAPTER 37. PERJURY AND OTHER FALSIFICATION

    § 37.08. FALSE REPORT TO PEACE OFFICER OR LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE.
    (a) A person commits an offense if, with intent to deceive, he knowingly makes a false statement that is material to a criminal investigation and makes the statement to:
    (1) a peace officer conducting the investigation; or
    (2) any employee of a law enforcement agency that is authorized by the agency to conduct the investigation and that the actor knows is conducting the investigation.
    (b) In this section, "law enforcement agency" has the meaning assigned by Article 59.01, Code of Criminal Procedure.
    (c) An offense under this section is a Class B misdemeanor.

    The penalties for a class B misdemeanor in TX are:

    § 12.22. CLASS B MISDEMEANOR.

    An individual adjudged guilty of a Class B misdemeanor shall be punished by:

    (1) a fine not to exceed $2,000;

    (2) confinement in jail for a term not to exceed 180 days; or
    (3) both such fine and confinement.

  10. Real or otherwise, probably should have blurred out the address.

  11. I know that neighborhood. The 1900 block of Hi Line Drive is an industrial ghetto. Check out the Google Streetview on this:

    But there is a Denny's nearby.

  12. @Anastasia - the area you are referring to is the Dallas Design District. Don't rely on those old Google Maps. The area is far from "ghetto". I should know, I live there. High end design and art showrooms are all over, including the Goss-Michael (as in Kenny Goss & George Michael) Gallery which is next door to Mr. Garret's residence. Please don't judge our neighborhood on the actions of one GOP lovin' twink. Kthanksbye!
