And now the lawsuit.
 
2018-07-12 01:29:56 PM  
When it's only about retaliation and harassment, of course it's gonna be dropped.

Daniels allegedly made her way toward two detectives, leaned over and grabbed their faces. She shoved each of their faces between her breasts, court documents said.

You monster!

Sounded like malicious prosecution anyway.

Yes, very impressive.

But I saw on Twitter that this had more levels besides what was initially reported, including some human trafficking charges.

Did people lie? On the internet?

That's fine.  Sitting president of the United States using law enforcement to retaliate against people with incriminating evidence against him.

Absolutely fine.

In before we're supposed to allow maximum benefit of the doubt towards an individual who regularly talks about beating up and jailing reporters, protesters, and political enemies.
 
2018-07-12 01:32:58 PM  
I am so surprised this happened...so so surprised.

I wish I had known about this ahead of time. Sirens is about 3-4 miles from me and I would have gone.

"Hillary Clinton and Stormy Daniels were in the broom closet, trafficking sex slaves, and I saw the sex slaves, and the sex slave, she looked at me."

Was the arrest for violation of finance laws? Most people I know would pay good money for that

Minor charge...but the law was broken.  So don't think they can sue.  Probably try just to keep Stormy in limelight.

And her lawyer

They can sue and settle. Not saying they will but they could. Even for $1.

According to the local news, no one has ever been charged under the no touching law since its passing.  Columbus police have better things to do with their time than worry about strip club etiquette.

I would really like to know if the officers involved are Trumpites or not. That can add fuel to all the lawsuits.

skyotter: Now it sounds like she wasn't actually the sting's target.  Huh.

The arrest of Daniels and two others was part of a "long-term investigation into allegations of human trafficking, prostitution, & other vice related violations," Columbus police said in a statement.


And not, of course, Columbus' finest sending a message to someone daring to make trouble for their guy in the White House.

You gotta wonder how many charges against sex workers would get dropped if every one of them had competent legal representation.

The entire system for prosecuting the generally poorer section of society for a host of crimes (sex work, drug use, etc) is dependent on the accused having virtually no ability to fight the charges in court beyond taking whatever plea deal the pubic defender might negotiate during a five minute discussion with the prosecutor.

The moment anyone heard this, they knew this was revenge for embarrassing Trump.  The question is, who arranged it?

No, part of the rational for the detectives being there was looking for human trafficking, but she wasn't charged with that when they entrapped her by allowing her to touch them.  Turns out that isn't illegal for visiting performers.
 
2018-07-12 01:40:49 PM  
Can you imagine being third-shift leader at the Columbus cop shop and having this hot potato tossed at you just in time for the weekend?  Damn right those charges got dismissed.
 
2018-07-12 01:40:59 PM  
Sounds like they forgot who her lawyer was. Whoops.

Aw crap, now I have to update my wall of post-its, newspaper clippings, push-pins and string. But the picture in the center with the big red "X" on it will always stay the same.

That article was a delight to read. Fondling the officers breasts. Tee hee hee. The author stayed so professional, whole talking about cops working a strip club.and getting.fondled as part of their jobs.

Do you think they objected? How did they react? Were they professional about the motorboating? Did they arrest her immediately, or wait till she was done?

"So, how was work, honey?"

Kinda stupid law for a strip joint. My state they can rip your clothes off you and mount you in the shower stage.... not that i have ever seen this mind you... a friend told me.

How many police hours were spent attending strip clubs before these bogus arrests were made?

In other words, it is not the sleazy thing we think the police are doing. It is some entirely different sleazy thing.

If you read the motion to dismiss, it's clear the law wasn't broken, because the law only applies to performers who perform "regularly".

The DA. "You did what to Who?"
Looks at the aalanch of crap headed their way..
I don't need that headache, "all charges dropped"

Under an Ohio law passed in 2007, an employee who regularly appears nude or seminude is prohibited from touching patrons on the premises of a sexually oriented business -- unless it's a family member.

Wait, is this Ohio, or Alabama?

/That rule would be the OTHER "Mullet Doctrine", I imagine.
 
2018-07-12 01:46:40 PM  
"they observed Daniels remove her top and force patrons' faces into her chest."

Forced? Really? Seeing as it happened at a strip club, I'm pretty sure nobody needed to be forced.
 
2018-07-12 01:48:07 PM  
I understood charges were dropped because Stormy Daniels doesn't usually touch "three undercover detectives" in Columbus, OH. Those cops usually just touch themselves.
 
2018-07-12 01:49:34 PM  
Did she take the hint? Leave lil Donny alone.

You can't sue just because you weren't guilty.  You'd have to prove that she was deliberately charged for something she didn't do and there has to be some sort of malice or misconduct, such as showing that the charge was laid in bad faith.  The DA disagreeing with the Defense lawyer about interpretations of the law is not misconduct, it's why we have Judges.

of course they do, i hear there are still black paperboys, running loose in white neighborhoods.

I'm not sure who to believe:

Columbus police said they have made numerous arrests based on this law since last fall when authorities "were made aware" of illegal activity at adult entertainment clubs in the city.

or

Layken Curry, a dancer at Sirens Gentleman's Club, said dancers are not allowed to have contact with the customers and must maintain a one-arm distance from them. If that space is violated by customers, they are generally escorted out. If it's violated by a dancer, that is usually taken care of by management, she said.

Curry said she has never seen anyone get arrested in the 2½ years she has worked at Sirens, nor has she had any experience with the law while on the job.

I have to believe the dancer over the cops.  They're in CYA mode to attempt to prevent lawsuits.  I love when the prosecutor is looking at the charges against the other two women who were arrested.
