Hypocrisy is alive and well in Dallas, Texas.

Seems the Dallas police department has a routine habit of busting video porn store clerks for the promotion of vice despite the fact that the store has a legal license to sell the material. Yes, that’s right. Dallas, like most big cities, has an anti-obscenity ordinance as well as an ordinance that regulates what kinds of “adult” content is legal to sell. Despite this fact the police regularly arrest not the owners of the store, but the low-paid clerks who work in the stores. Reading the article I linked to above it’s clear that this whole thing is a sham so the local government can say that it’s doing something about the “problem” of smut whenever an uppitty right-wing organization that likes to tell everyone how they should live their lives calls and complains. Until recently the routine was for the clerk to cop a plea, pay a $1000 fine (which the store owners usually reimbursed them for) and spend a day in jail, but lately a young lawyer has been taking on their cases and winning. Which is a good thing considering that some clerks have upwards of 50 convictions on their records by now. What a wonderful country we live in!

  1. Greetings Les,
    I’m new to your site. Don’t remember how I found it.
    I am a 75 year-old grandfather originally from Duluth, an Atheist, ex altar boy who escaped, one who did not like Kerry but absolutely cannot abide Bush.
    I feel that Bush’s goal in the Mid East is less democatization and more Christianization.
    With now over 1400 of our own dead in a land where we had no business, to pull out today and save whatever lives we can would be the thing to do. I hope the Rapture does come! That should take care of the White House!
