The Boston Police are investigating their officers’ response to duel protests at the Boston Common on Sunday, 'Tax Day,' after a photo surfaced (left) showing a city police officer with his hand around a protester’s neck.

The Tea Party-organized event was co-sponsored by the anti-gay MassResistance and featured Scott Lively, a proponent of Uganda’s infamous ‘kill gays’ legislation.

As pro-gay counter-protesters (Occupy Boston Queer and Trans Direct Action Working Group) expressed their opposition to Lively’s participation, one of the speakers said from the podium: “We will not be silenced by faggots.”
