As reported by Atlanta's Cruise News, police said Howard was driving when his car crossed the center lane and struck a pickup truck driven by Stewart Rhette Wallace, 31, of West Marietta. Fisk had recently appeared in the Mandate and Torso. His major film endeavor was Falcon's The Other Side of Aspen. He had recently been employed at Atlanta gay clubs. Moscone, Milk Assassinations Still Heated Issue By Dion B. Sanders Via GPA Wire Service SAN FRANCISCO-With the fifth anniversary of the assassinations of Mayor George Moscone and openly gay city Supervisor Harvey Milk approaching, the Justice Department in late October refused to either confirm or deny a local TV news report that Attorney General William French Smith had been urged not to prosecute their convicted killer. KGO-TV reported that Smith received a recommendation from the department's criminal division that former Supervisor Dan White, who shot Moscone and Milk to death at point-blank range in their City Hall offices on Nov. 27,1978. not be prosecuted on charges that he violated their civil rights. John Russell, a Justice Department spokesman, told The Sentinel, a local gay newspaper, that the White case "is still being examined by the criminal division, and no new decision has been made." Russell added that although he does expect a decision to be reached soon, "I can't tell you just what soon is." A spokesman for U.S. Attorney Joseph Rusoniello expressed total surprise by the KGO-TV report. "Not only have we not heard about this so-called recommendation, but if it had been given, we would have been informed." Rusoniello himself was quoted by the .San Francisco Chronicle as saying that "I would expect to be the first to know (if a decision had been made). We have no information about any decision that has been made." The report was attacked by the longtime lover of Milk as "totally off-base." C. Scott Smith, the sole heir to the Milk estate, claimed that contrary to KGO-TV, "other news sources said a recommendation had not been made yet." Moreover, Scott Smith said, the report was broadcast on a Monday when the Justice Department received new information on the case "only that weekend." John Wahl, the attorney representing the Milk estate, was quoted by the Chronicle as saying that the KGO-TV report was "a trial balloon by the Justice Department." A KGO-TV spokesman said the station "stdnde by ouf story."

Von Scruggs was dressed as a California Highway Patrolman, and his friend William Markley was in a Los Angeles Police Department Uniform. Neither of them wore authentic badges, utility belts, holstered weapons, handcuffs or batons. Scruggs said they were both members of a uniform club. After rounding the corner from the bar, Scruggs and Markley were surrounded'by six CHP patrol cars, arrested and taken to the West Hollywood Sheriffs Station where they spent the night. Their costumes were confiscated, and they were charged with the misdemeanor which carries a maximum penalty of up to six- month's imprisonment or a fine of $500 or both. Scruggs said some of the officers tried to provoke them with name calling and harassment, but they refused to respond to it. He said that the clothing had been purchased from a uniform store that services CHP and LAPD officers, and explained You're Reading THE STAR America's Newest Gay Community Newspaper how they told the sales clerk they were not sworn officers when buying the patches. The store swore they did not sell the uniforms without the purchaser showing the proper ID. An entirely different picture was painted by Sgt. Norris Soloman of the LAPD who coordinates relations with the city's numerous private patrols. Sgt. Solo- man said that he is unaware of any law prohibiting the sale ofthe uniforms to civilians, and he knows that all the uniform sales companies do it. He said his office asks private guards to mix-match the pieces so they aren't confused with a sworn officer's. Nevertheless, an individual nightclub guard may try to dress identical to the LAPD uniform, and when he is discovered, they will tell him to change it. "Wearing of a police officer's uniform may or may not be legal," said Soloman. "It depends on whether or not there was intent to deceive the public." He cited the movie industry as the notable exception. Next we checked with Western Costume, the film industry's largest supplier, and got two conflicting responses. One of the higher-ups in the men's rental department said they "most emphatically do not rent police uniforms to the public." He said they get lots of requests for cops, Nazis, nuns and priests, which they will only supply for bonafied theatrical use. Another employee said that's not true. "They're just concerned about making costumes that might be considered in bad taste. As for uniforms, there's ways to get around it. We'll change some little detail, like the width of the pant striping or a slightly different badge, and let them go out." As for priests. Western Costume made up an absolutely exquisite Pope for one Halloween celebrant who apparently was not arrested for impersonating the Pontiff. Neither were any of the costumed cops at the Uniform Sabeth party held at Duane's, another gay bar, the night fol lowing Scruggs and Markley's arrests.
