Comment of the Day: Where Were the Swinging Cops During That Raid?


Today's comment comes in response to an article about a St. Louis nightclub that was recently busted for holding a swingers event.

Reader "KittyMeewow" thought the police raid was a little over the top, considering the harmlessness of the alleged crime and the fact that several cops may be lifestyle friendly themselves. Writes KittyMeewow:
FTR, I know several STL city and co. cops that ARE IN FACT SWINGERS!  I wonder if the bust would (or did) take place if those cops had been in attendance?!?  Not to mention, the things mentioned in the article have taken place on dance floors at most of the bars I've been to on any average night, no special club meeting needed! WTF!
