We have achieved yet another historic milestone on our progressive march to polysexual politically impeccable utopia. The first openly homosexual Los Angeles police officer has gone on to make history again by becoming the first openly homosexual former Los Angeles police officer to be charged with domestic violence:
Retired Sgt. Mitchell Grobeson, 57, was arrested Friday after a nearly four-hour standoff inside a West Hollywood home before he surrendered to a sheriff’s SWAT team.
Grobeson is being held on $250,000 bail on suspicion of corporal injury to a spouse, according to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He was charged with assault with a firearm and criminal threats stemming from a domestic dispute with his husband that led to Friday’s standoff.
When utopia is achieved, people will be able to read “his husband” without doing a double take.
So far as I know, the lovebirds didn’t adopt. What a shame to waste such a stable, normal environment for raising children.
This isn’t the first time Grobeson has made a public nuisance of himself:
Grobeson sued the city of Los Angeles in 1988, alleging discriminatory practices against gay and lesbian employees by the police department. He won reinstatement to the LAPD as part of a settlement to that suit but later claimed that his bosses held the suit against him and filed a second lawsuit.
The entire legal saga took 25 years to play out, and Grobeson finally settled the second lawsuit in 2013.
Maybe the legal saga still isn’t over. If Grobeson could use some extra money, he might decide he was traumatized by the SWAT team, which no doubt discriminated against him because of his politically preferred sexual proclivities and lifestyle.
A lot of trouble could have been avoided if Grobeson had joined the Village People instead of going into law enforcement:
