An openly gay man was rescued by police after an angry mob cornered him inside a bank parking lot in Half Way Tree.
Loop News arrived on the scene just in time to see police keeping the crowd at bay. The man said that he was walking with three friends when the mob descended on them and they ran in different directions. He ran into a popular bank's parking lot where a policeman arrived quickly and called for backup.
"I am gay and they wanted to beat me because I am gay. But I am comfortable with who I am," added the man.
Members of the crowd were unsympathetic towards the man. "Ah lucky him lucky, you saved his life," a man told the cop who arrived first on the scene. Ironically, some members of the crowd praised the policeman for his efforts. Read More via Loop Jamaica
