The Fruits of Intensive Investigations
Sure, everyone knows that Lafayette, Louisiana is a relatively safe place to live. But could it really have no violent crime at all? Apparently that is indeed the case, given the attention being paid to the owners of "Bad Kitty," an adult novelty shop. About one year ago, some of Lafayette's finest raided Bad Kitty, seizing some 230 adult videos. After a painstaking investigation revealed that some of the videos were arguably obscene -- one wonders how many viewings were required to reach this professional determination -- the owners of Little Kitty have been charged with, er, obscenity. They now face up to three years in prison and a $2,500 fine if convicted.
No word on if the Lafayette police and prosecutors are keeping close tabs on low-slung pants.
