"A Daniel Come to Judgment"
The Lion's Den Adult Superstore near Abilene, Kansas, has been facing twenty-odd charges for promoting obscenity. As Vice Squad noted last April, this case came into being thanks to a petition campaign by Citizens for Strengthening Community Virtues; the signatures on the petition led to a grand jury being empaneled, culminating in the charges. But the petition giveth, and the petition taketh away: a judge threw out the charges this week due to irregularities in the petition. Seems some information about where signatories voted was added (for those signers who hadn't included the info themselves) by the organizers. Apparently that is a problem.
