Clarksville cracks down on smut

Posted By on Wed, Jul 21, 2010 at 10:56 AM

The city of Clarksville, unable so far to run an adult book and movie store out of town by zoning artifice, has sicced the cops on the X-Mart Adult Supercenter. Clarksville's crack vice squad thinks it has the goods on clerks who sold undercover cops some dirty movies. (And watched them multiple times, we bet, to be sure the stuff was just as bad as they say it is.)

The police chief said he responded to complaints about obscene materials. Presumably, the complainants had to go to the store and review the goods carefully to be aware that objectionable material lurked within.

Police overreaction? I know it when I see it.
