Lesbian Couple Beaten Up on London Bus after Refusing to Kiss


Melania Geymonat, 28, said the attack on her and girlfriend Chris happened on the top deck of a London night bus as they were traveling to Camden Town in the early hours of 30 May.

Miss Geymonat posted on her Facebook page: "In an attempt to calm things down, I started making jokes. I thought this might make them go away. Chris even pretended she was sick, but they kept on harassing us, throwing us coins and becoming more enthusiastic about it.

"The next thing I know is that Chris is in the middle of the bus fighting with them. On an impulse, I went over there only to find her face bleeding and three of them beating her up.

"The next thing I know is I'm being punched. I got dizzy at the sight of my blood and fell back. I don't remember whether or not I lost consciousness. Suddenly the bus had stopped, the police were there and I was bleeding all over."

Miss Geymonat added that the gang of at least four men might have broken her nose during the ordeal, and stole a phone and bag from them before fleeing.

2. CCTV cameras all over London so they'll probably be caught.

I sure hope so.

4. Teenagers held over homophobic attack on two women on London bus

A Metropolitan police statement said: “Four males aged between 15 to 18 have been arrested on Friday 7 June on suspicion of robbery and aggravated GBH. They have been taken to separate London police stations for questioning.”

6. They got caught because London has cameras everywhere.

Some people here on DU think that public cameras are evil and allow big brother police to spy on us. But those cameras help police catch criminals and do nothing to people that are obeying laws.

8. So. We get the modern Panopticon.

Read some of the novels by John Twelve Hawks.

Being survived constantly may give you the illusion of being safer, but what it actually does is remove your privacy. The women beaten up in London were no safer with the cameras that London has everywhere. Maybe it makes the cops easier to find the felons. Maybe not. What they do is to make sure that all the public things the Brits do is on camera.

"If I'm not doing anything wrong, I don't care if they're watching me." OK, well you OK with police walking into your house and searching without a warrant? Probably not.
It's a real slippery slope.

Consider it.

11. They could have got beaten without cameras and NO ONE would have been brought to justice.

You have your view on this issue, I have mine. I am ok with public cameras and don't feel for one second that they invade my privacy.
