That "too much crime associated with topless clubs" is, of course, complete BS and entirely made up out of whole cloth in order to obfuscate the real issue, which is the religious and moral objections held by some. Heck, the straight business right next door has had much more serious crime associated with hit (Orbit Room).
Which I proved when I testified in front of the city commission. I had 2005 statistics from the Grand Rapids Police Department with crime figures for three regular bars and taverns (Konkles, Monte's, and the Brickhouse) and two strip clubs (Parkway Tropics and Sensation's). Of those five, Konkles had the most police calls and the more serious crimes. The least calls were Parkway and Sensation's. The city didn't want to listen because they had an agenda and it was more important for them to appease the agenda of Judy Rose than to actually do something to make the city a better place.
It's been awhile since I read the ordinance, but I recall that there is even a clause in it that states that the ordinance will still be valid even if it can be shown that there is not an increase in crime associated with nudity in clubs. Hedging their bets. Unconscionable fools.
I have a copy of the ordinance and that clause doesn't exist. They flat out buy into the "secondary negative effects" line of horseshit that's regurgitated by people like Scott Bergthold, who makes a living writing and defending ordinances like the ones he wrote for Grand Rapids, Detroit, Missouri, northern Kentucky, et al. In the infamous words of Jesse Ventura, if you want to know who has an agenda, "follow the money!"
