Texas county adopts sweeping policy to protect LGBT inmates
Fox News ^ | 11/14/2013 | Associated Press

The sheriff of Houston's Harris County has adopted a sweeping policy designed to protect and guarantee equal treatment of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender inmates, including allowing transgender individuals to be housed based on the gender they identify with instead of their biological sex.

The new policy, which Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia's office believes to be one of the most comprehensive in the country, states "discrimination or harassment of any kind based on sexual orientation or gender identity is strictly prohibited," and outlines how such inmates will be searched, booked and housed, according to a copy of the policy obtained by The Associated Press ahead of an official announcement Thursday.

So, if I think I am going to get arrested, I will find the nearest female clothing store and change. Then, I can go to the girl jail where Penthouse says awesome things happen. LMAO

I think the state legislature should rescind their charter as a county.

Imagine things such as shower room complaints. HEY, I didn’t grope the girl, I ran into her by accident. I didn’t touch her you know what on purpose, the soap slipped out of my hands, etc.etc.

Actually, that would be Harris County which includes the City of Houston, not the State of Texas.

The Sodomites are determined to establish their ancient rights to full access to normal people and children. Reversing civilization is their agenda.

I say let’s leave this alone and let it play out to its own ridiculous conclusion. Hopefully, the low-info cretins will figure it out and vote these idiots out of office.

Neither will happen in Harris County. They just elected the gay Mayor for her third and final term and it is the home of the wonderful Sheila Jackson Lee.

They also have their own equivalent of Sharpton in the form of Quannell X who is really upset about Blacks being arrested to the point that he informed the current Hispanic head police honcho on TV that “we elected you, we can throw you out”.

Just four of the reasons I moved out of the city.

When you God and His Principles out of the equation ,and the United States is doing this Nationwide , more in some places , less in others, chaos fill the vacuum. And the results are always disaster.

Provides a whole lot of material for Michael Berry. If you’ve never listened to him, you should. It’s a real hoot.
