Will Walters was at the 2011 San Diego Pride Parade celebrating. He was wearing a custom-made gladiator kilt with front and back panels. However, the back panels did not fully cover up his buttocks.
 
Upon seeing this, a San Diego police officer told Walters to cover up. Walters refused, so the cop attempted to cite Walters for a misdemeanor charge of public nudity. Walters though refused to sign the citation and was arrested. Walters then spent the night in jail.
 
When Walters got out of jail, he sued the city claiming a violation of his civil rights. He claimed that his arrest was motivated by discrimination against his sexual orientation. A Federal trial court dismissed the lawsuit with a summary judgement. But the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to take the case on appeal.
 
In April of 2016, the 9th Circuit ordered the case to go to trial and threw out the trial court’s summary judgement. In December, the case went to trial.
 
It took two hours for the jury to find that the city did not discriminate against Walters because of his sexuality. It found that the city did not enforce nudity laws any different at the Pride parade than at other events.
 
Walters was left with $1 million in legal bills over his bogus lawsuit. As a result, he killed himself before the New Year.
 
Despite the fact his lawsuit was of questionable merit and Walters clearly aggravated the situation by refusing to cooperate with police, gay rights activists eulogized Walters to the local media. “Will Walters was a valiant warrior for his cause, and he will be missed by those who knew him and the community he fought for,” his attorney Chris Morris told the San Diego Union Tribune.
 
“He was a young activist and many of us thought he had a bright future in our community, and it’s a loss to our community,” Nicole Murray-Ramirez, a San Diego gay community leader and city Human Relations commissioner, told the San Diego Union Tribune as well. She also hoped that the case would help educate police officers about biases, despite the fact that the jury found the city and law enforcement did nothing wrong.
 
What we have here is snowflake and SJW culture taken to its most extreme. The dead man thought he was above both the law and basic decency and refused to cover his private parts. When a police officer came over to do his job, he accused him and the city of San Diego of being homophobes, even though he was uncooperative.
 
When it came time to face the consequences of his bogus lawsuit, Will Walters took his life rather than take responsibility.
