City officials in St. Louis, Mo., are moving to shut down The Red 7 nightclub and bar for hosting a swingers party, according to media accounts.
When undercover police officers entered the "couples only" event last Saturday, they found women with their shirts unbuttoned and clothing removed, couples openly fondling each other and groups having oral sex, according to the city investigation report.
“Groups having oral sex”? Okay, we’d be looking for a little more detail than that in an investigative report, because we’re not exactly sure what they mean. You know? A liquor commission staff member estimated the crowd at 150 people.
We agree with Riverfront Times blogger Chad Garrison on this one:
Who were these swingers harming on Saturday night? And would anyone outside of their community have known about this if the police hadn't conducted their raid? Lastly, in a city plagued by legitimate crime, is busting consenting adults really the best use of our law enforcement resources?
Yes, that about covers it.
