Miami Beach Cops Sued by ACLU on Behalf of Gay Man Unlawfully Arrested After Observing Police Beating

The Miami Herald reports:
While the lawsuit focuses specifically on Strickland’s arrest and violations of his civil rights by two Miami Beach Police Officers, the lawsuit highlights two systemic issues that reach far beyond this case: the practices of unlawfully targeting gay men for arrest without probable cause and harassing and arresting people who observe, document, and/or report police misconduct.
