No young gay men in West Hollywood?! Been to Fiesta Cantina lately?

Just wonder why the Sheriff feels no need to focus on the Sunset Strip or La Brea? Our civic leaders keep wondering why young gay men don’t bother coming to West Hollywood.

Gee thanks Disco Dan, now I understand the story better. The check point was just north of Beverly on San Vicente, not Beverly and San Vicente. That explains it!

Since I got caught up in this situation, the officers were on San Vicente but just a tad south of Rosewood which had been blocked off. It was not at Beverly.
