Crime & Punishment: Police Break Up SCSU's "F**k the Cops" Night
The East Hartford strip club Kahoots found a novel way to advertise. Owner Dan Quinn apparently took a 12-foot box van, installed a pole-dance stage in the rear and replaced the sides with plexiglass. Then he sent the vehicle into Hartford during lunch hour with two dancers clad in bikinis and high-heeled boots in the back. There has been no unbiased account of the incident, as TV news networks declined to cover the stripper-mobile and the Hartford Courant gave space only to a scornful opinion piece by a representative of the Family Institute of Connecticut (who called on residents to "condemn [these] flotillas of leather and breasts"). But the Adult Video News website claims people were "hanging out the windows of their high-rise offices and condos, cheering the gals on." With no nudity shown and the driver obeying traffic laws, police did not stop the show.
