Video shows Greater Toronto Area police services, Toronto Crime Stoppers and the Toronto Fire Department marching in the 2008 Pride Parade. Crime Stoppers Partner With RHVP-Report Homophobic Violence, Period(RHVP) by Louis Tam – courtesy of torontopolice.on.ca The Toronto Police Service’s Community Mobilization Unit has joined a coalition of community members and creative designers to prevent homophobic and transphobic violence among youth and boost reporting of hate crimes. Report Homophobic Violence, Period. is a public awareness campaign aimed at young people, aged 13 to 25, to address reasons for homophobic attitudes and spur others to report harassment and violence to adults and police. “We have hate-crime legislation, but it is only as good as its implementation,” says Constable Decker, the LGBT Liaison Officer for the Toronto Police Service. “We want to counteract the underreporting of homophobic and transphobic hate crimes.” Underreporting happens because many victims feel the incident did not get out of control, they won’t be taken seriously, they are embarrassed, or live in fear of isolation and retaliation. Many still feel that by reporting they may be re-victimized by the agents they turn to for help. The Toronto Police Service wants to send a strong message that this is not the case and that incidents are taken seriously and dealt with appropriately. A 2006

    That’s pretty cool with the hose spraying everyone. I had always heard that homosexuals liked to have their faces sprayed, so I guess it’s true.
