LAPD Cracks Down On Park Cruising


The Los Angeles Police Department announced at a press conference Friday that officers would be cracking down on lewd activity in the city's parks -- primarily Griffith Park, Elysian Park, and Sycamore Grove, KABC TV reports.

There have been 90 lewd conduct arrests in Elysian Park since January, the officers said, adding that the people arrested on these charges are typically men engaging in same-sex sexual activity.

The officers were careful, however, to state that they weren't targeting gay people, but anyone who chooses to have sex in public parks. "Gay, straight, bi, or whatever sexual orientation they are is not our concern," said Sgt. Lisa Phillips. "Our concern is to stop this activity or at least attempt to abate it."
