Adult-film star, Stormy Daniels, was arrested and quickly released in Columbus, Ohio after a performance at Siren Strip Club last week. Her lawyer claimed that Columbus vice police officers were out of line when arresting her over inappropriately touching patrons and officers during her performance. Officers cited the Community Defense Act, passed in 2007 to restrict the hours and sexual activities at strip clubs and adult bookstores, as grounds for her arrest. Today on All Sides, we look at the job of a vice police officer and the challenges they face with budget restrictions and low recruitment numbers.
