San Antonio Strippers to Wear Permits
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/S/STRIPPING_PERMITS?SITE=SCCOL&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT ^

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The City Council on Friday approved an ordinance requiring strippers to wear their permits while they are on stage.

City Councilman Chip Haass pushed the measure, adopted unanimously by the 11-member council, as a way to make it easier for police to identify dancers.

But Jim Deegear, a lawyer for several strip clubs in the city, said it would put strippers in danger by making it easier for an obsessed customer to find out a dancer's real name and where she lives.

He said the measure is part of an effort to drive strip clubs out of business, and he said he will fight it in court.

How about like they do for Motel toilet seats:

"SANITIZED FOR YOUR PROTECTION"

They would force strippers to reveal their real names to the customers? Bad idea.

"City Councilman Chip Haass pushed the measure, adopted unanimously by the 11-member council, as a way to make it easier for police to identify dancers. "

The dancer's must have some kind of urban commo, or stealth device. A judge should require these council members to wear dunce hats for all public appearances.

Well, I'll to agree on this one. I always have a hard time determining which ones are the strippers.

As Chris Rock says to fathers: "Your job is to keep your daughters Off The Pole". Being in a job that makes one a magnet for passion-obsessed people puts you at risk and raises the question "is it worth it"?

Identify as in "card them". Makes it easier if they have to wear their card (earring? dangling from G-string? Inserted into some orifice? Probably their choice.)

This is how crooked cops get away with stripper date rapes.

Does the law require a physician to carry his license with him or is it kept in his office? Do any other professions require a person to have their license attached to them? Why can't the owner keep the license and the cops can question the owner, owner allow cop to view it?

I almost posted this from the Houston Chronicle. I just posted articles on a new smoking ban in Corpus Christi, a proposed smoking ban in Houston, a delay but not outright rejection to Houston Mayor Bob-White's plan to install red light cameras...

Texas must now have the subtitle "The Nanny State".

Police will enjoy "spot inspections" to make sure that all strippers are wearing current registration tags. Tax dollars at work. The Houston fire marshall was notorious a few years back for checking fire safety during business hours (and spending city money at the club).

I think they tried to do this in Houston a few years ago and lost in court.

Some councilmen/women have nothing better to do with their time in office.

Pile on the requirements, I say. If the liberal judges keep telling us things like porn and strip clubs are "free speech," then find other ways like this to fight it and protect our values.

...to make it easier for police to identify dancers.

This point requires further amplification.

Re; Visits to clubs by fire marshall in Houston during working hours.

That wasn't as bad as the vice squad that spent lots of time there without making arrests. In fact, one officer got so bombed at his bachelor party "on the house of course" that he got into an argument with a citizen and shot him.

In fact, the club owners brought hidden cam footage of the vice squad in 'action' at various clubs to bolster their court case.
