Portugal: police harass a kissing lesbian couple

It seems that a lesbian couple commited a crime against public order, under La Ley de Vagos y Maleantes (the Vagrants and Cominals law) , by kissing in a park. They were in Arco de Cegó, in the Saldanha neighborhood, in the capital of fado. A group of several police officers approached the couple to respond to their behaviour, while a young witness, surprised by the fact, decided to secretly record the altercation. She was able to video events until a police officer from the group approached her to ask what she was doing.

When the police officers approached, one of the girls was lying down, the other was sitting and giving her a kiss. …

According to the complainant, who was forced to deactivate her cell phone, there were around eight policemen, and they were threatening the lesbian couple with fines if they repeated the behavior. “If they continue to engage in inappropriate behavior” were the literal words of the officers.

Y parece que una pareja de lesbianas comete un delito de orden público, estilo Ley de Vagos y maleantes, por besarse en un parque. Estaban en Arco de Cegó, en el barrio de Saldanha, de la capital del fado. Un grupo de varios policías se acercó a la pareja para replicarles su actitud, mientras una joven testigo, sorprendida por el hecho, decidió grabar secretamente el altercado. Pudo captarlo en imágenes hasta que una policía del grupo se acercó a ella para preguntarle qué estaba haciendo.

Cuando se acercaron los policías una de las chicas estaba tumbada, la otra sentada y le daba un beso. …

Según la denunciante, a la que obligaron a desactivar el móvil, los policías eran en torno a ocho, y estaban amenanzándolas con multarlas si repetían la conducta. “Si siguen teniendo comportamientos impropios” fueron las palabras literales de los oficiales.
