Four more Bourbon Street clubs have had their alcohol and tobacco permits suspended in the state's ongoing "Operation Trick or Treat" investigation, officials said. That raises to nine the number of French Quarter strip clubs or bars accused of illegal activity in the investigation.Shouldn't Scoot or David Vitter or somebody be complaining about how wasteful it is that we're not "focused on the murders" instead of this? Actually, Vitter probably wants to steer clear of the whole French Quarter vice issue right now so that's a bad example.
Babe's Cabaret, Big Daddy's, Bourbon Cowboy and The Swamp on Bourbon all received the emergency suspensions Thursday (Nov. 5), according to a release from the Louisiana Alcohol and Tobacco Control.
Authorities said their investigation found acts of prostitution and "drug activity" at the strip clubs Babe's Cabaret and Big Daddy's, as well as "lewd/improper acts."
The point is, law enforcement does seem to have a lot of capacity to do non-violent enforcement lately.
The NOPD Traffic Division will conduct a sobriety checkpoint beginning at 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 5, 2015, to 5:00 a.m. on Friday, November 6, 2015. Motorists will experience minimal delays and should have the proper documentation available if requested, i.e., proof of insurance, driver’s license, etc.Can't imagine they'll end up reporting a whole lot of "unfounded" lewdness either. Anyway, how much longer is this going on?
"We are in the second month of this operation and it will continue to run through the holidays," ATC Commissioner Troy Hebert said in the release. "ATC will continue to do its part to weed out criminal activity at locations that are given the privilege to sell alcohol and tobacco."Hmm.. They probably just want to hang around long enough to re-name it Operation Naughty List.. or Bad Santa or whatever.
