Gay couple violently abused by the police in South Africa


A gay couple has been homophobically abused, reportedly by two police officers and the video has gone viral. The reported officers bullied and mocked two men they found in the middle of a sexual encounter in a car in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. In the video revealed by News24 the men are shown naked and they are trying to cover their intimate body parts but their abusers tell them not to do it. So the men sit, fully exposed, while their attackers abused them verbally and took photos of it. The couple desperately apologises, but one of the abusers does not accept this, telling them: “It is a shame what you are doing. Men are not supposed to do this”. Then they threatened to arrest the couple but then told them to get dressed and go. Thabiso Mogapi, chairperson of Action for Social Justice International, said that his organisation had identified the couple and was helping them with both psychological and legal help.
