Exactly right! The only ones that should have been arrested were the bartender and the permittee.

What would your reaction be if while traveling you walked into the hotel lobby with your young children looking for a room and found a bunch of bare azz people having at it?
If the club had their "party" in a secure banquet room out of the public view no one would care and there would be no police involvement.
Did you even read the damn article? The event was taking place in a bar that was closed to the public, not the lobby. It was secure and out of public view. And yet the morality police were still involved.

Common sense made sense.Besides they were in a bar. They were ( i think i heard this from other news accounts ) visable to other patrons who were not part of the free swingers. If they wanted to take the party upstairs to a or a couple of bedrooms that would have been very different. I would have been looking for my invite then. Not in a public bar. We are not animals, at least most of us are not.

You can bet that if there were cops at the party when it was raided, we would not even know it happened.

I must be missing something here. Am I to understand correctly that this was a private party,that the general public could not just wander in unawares? Then surely there must have been some sort
of illegal activity. Where they serving under age monors? Where there prostitutes chraging for thier services or was this just a bunch of legally consenting,private group of ADULTS minding thier own business? If this party had taken place in the summertime in
someone's back yard whould it too have been raided?
I shudder to think in these economic times,all the money and man hours that went into this so called investigation,never mind tying up the already over burdened and crowed court system.They will probably have to let some mugger/drug deal off so that they can spend the time and effort to prosecute these "hardened criminals for the henious crime of ???.
However is very comforting to know there are no other bars out there serving minors or giving drinks to people already totaly bombed. That all the other bars in the State are obeying all the laws so nicely that they have all this time,resources and money to go after these desperados.When all is said and done I would be curious to know how much of our tax dollars were spent and in what manner we are now safer.

Incase you missed it, the police were there to assist the state liquor board who were apparently the ones investigating. and no, I do not think that those guys have anything better to do.

Let's see.....
Adults in attendance. Everyone had to pay admission, so no "casual" customers could stumble in and be offended. The Liquor Commission deems it appropriate to "investigate" and impose their rendition of Victorian "morality" because of a technicality in statute.

Are you kidding me? Jodi should seriously think about eliminating these wannabe nazis from the payroll.

I've been in that place. It's not a restaurant, it is a bar ... the "Restaurant" is 100 feet away and you have to go through a set of steel doors to get there.
The cops registered using fake names to gain access to a private party. The bar was closed to the public. They were all adults that knew what they were getting into, and there were no drugs found. There are no windows in the place. I say let them be and concentrate on the rapists, drug dealers downtown, or better yet, arrest those corporate CEO's that are now costung the taxpayers Billions of dollars.

The cops were doing their job in reference to the law. We can't blame them. The one running the event should not have chosen a public venue or had the bar open. BYOB would have been much better. The title of this article mentions the swingers...why? The swingers did not break any law...it was the event director. Title should have been, Event Director Arrested For Alcohol Violations. I guess the Courant like other newspapers had to include innocent parties. So what if that is not our lifestyle, we are Americans. Be proud to be one but remember that means others have a right to their lifestyles as long it does not hurt anyone. Two consenting adults or more are allowed to swing or have an orgy. Get over it just don't join if you can't stand it!!! Go to church and pray for them if you have to! And please give the cops credit...they did their job!

Not to get off subject but this cop bashing is similar to what many do to soldiers. Many people that are against the war take it out on the soldiers. I don't believe in us being in Iraq but I believe in our soldiers. They went in with hearts of gold to do what their President asked them. I will defend my soldiers' honor and try to help them while they are at war and when they come back. The cops did what our Laws told them to do. They went in with hearts of gold...you someday will need these cops!!!

You missed the point. A permittee cannot close a permit premises (a bar open to the public) for private parties.

I unfotrtunately stayed at this dump of a hotel for 2 days with my family. They advertised as having a breakfast bar, a business center and pool. The roof of the pool room collapsed into the pool, the business center had a flat screen monitor and keyboard but no computer tower and for breakfast they served stale bread and sour orange juice. The hotel housekeepers warned me not to eat the food as it was rotten and they did not want my children to get ill. Front desk later called my room and stated that there was a swingers party that evening and not to come out of the room with the children because the party members often walk nude in the halls and lobby and engage in sex acts. Yes it is a private party but there are other guests in the hotel that are either held hostage in their rooms so as not to see these acitivities or are forced to leave, if this dump strictly reserved to the swinger guests that is one story, but I can say from first hand experience that is not the case. I had to pack my children up and leave when I walked out of the room and in the hall saw a woman engaged in a menage a trois right in the common hall. These parties are private held in a public hotel with other guests who were not previously warned of these event until after checking in. This establishment should be shut down by the health inspector for several reasons.

Getting some skull at the in a public bar is a little different simpleton than being naked at your own home.

Having sex where others are going to eat and drink? Are you kidding? You think that's ok? The problem I see here is the sex going on in the bar not the party or the sex going on behind closed doors.

Yes criminal. People should not be having sex where others consume food.
