“Frightening.”

Yes. I don’t want my child in the public school system. I know there are good teachers, and good public school systems. However, I just can’t afford to trust my child’s life and wellbeing to a system that appears unable or unwilling to police itself, either in terms of education or in terms such as involved in this case.

This was in a state park, you be the judge. From what I understand there are many pre-aranged places for these pervert homo’s to congregate for sex with strangers.

They’ve got to be gay. Only gay men hang around parks trying to get laid, because most women aren’t interested in anonymous sex.

If women showed the slightest interest in getting it on in park bathrooms, 99% of this country would be designated protected wildlife parkland.

It’s part of their “Culture”. I’m not kidding either. That was the reason given by the State Police not to hassle them at Rest Stops on MA highways.

“many prearranged places”

A few years back there was a bust at the rest stops on Rt 95 here north of DC. Tourists were popping in on these pervs and some were propositioned.

I remember when a rest area just south of Portland jwas completely closed down just because of this kind of activity. I don’t think it ever re-opened?

Short piece from the Statesman Journal, Salem.

Professor placed on leave after arrest

May 18, 2007

John Backus, an assistant professor of speech and communication at Western Oregon University, was placed on administrative leave Thursday, school officials said.

Backus, 46, of Monmouth was arrested on public indecency charges Sunday as part of an undercover sting by the Polk County Sheriff's Office targeting illegal sexual activity at Holman Wayside State Park.

That's my biggest concern. What are they hiding? I doubt that they don't know what the sting was all about. And since it's a "sting", doesn't that mean that the police were involved in setting this thing up? That makes me think that it's prostitution or something. Maybe gay, maybe not...

Actualy, these guys are sex addicts. They would have sex with a woman or animal as well, it doesn’t matter to them, sex is sex. This prearranged meeting place is just convenient for them, no hassle, no dinner bills or hotel room cost.

The park involved here is officially Holman Wayside, but is well-known locally as “Pervert Park”. While there is occasionally a female prostitute and male john caught there, most of the arrests are of homosexuals. Lots of exposing of selves in the bathroom, and there are places up in the hills above the parking lot in the trees that get frequented.

And I mean frequented. Us locals know better than to stop in at this park for any reason, day or night. The Polk County Sheriff does a sting operation a few times a year, the deputies routinely patrol it, but the perverts keep coming (no pun intended).

And it’s not like this place is out in BFE. It’s just a couple of feet of a major highway - basically a parking lot, a bathroom, and a couple acres of trees right by the 4-lane road.

“Out of 8 arrests, 8 were men. That comes to 100.0%... Hmmm.”

Yeah, you ever wonder why there are no lesbian park sex stings? People like to pretend it’s the depravity of gay men that leads to this sort of thing. They overlook the fact that straight men would also love to have free, anonymous sex in parks - if women were eager to do so as well.

Unfortunately for the guys, we’re not.

We're talking about Oregon here. After they find out that it was queer cruising, they'll give him tenure and a raise.

Yeah, you ever wonder why there are no lesbian park sex stings? ...........Women want relationships, the role of the male in nature is to seek and run down any female in heat. One of the attributes in selecting a bull for your heard of cows is the ability for him to be able to travel in a quick manner to inseminate as many cows as possible. Also, the bull must have a giant libido, or should I say, an urge to inseminate as many cows as possible.

But remember folks, these homosexuals are just like the rest of the normal folks... I mean come on, don’t all of you go to public bathrooms and rest areas and childrens playgrounds after dark to have anonymous sex with other people ???

Homsexuality is a MENTAL DISORDER! Hopefully they will lose their jobs, of course should have never had them in the first place.

“Are you defending them?”

No but was this a school function or at school? With students? If no, then what matter is it that they were id’d as teachers? Lord knows what other teachers, straight or otherwise do in their personal lives. In a park is odd but for the fact that they were teachers is irrelevant to me.

Exactly. In an extremely general sense, we women want stable, monogamous relationships, men want to make more cows.

Or something like that.
