With all the national coverage of a local matter in Ferguson, Missouri that was hijacked by national race-baiters and other assorted nasty people who are giving our beloved city of St. Louis a bad name, we forget that there are actual criminals in town who don’t shoot people, and in fact, provide services of sorts – albeit really immoral and illegal services.
Take Carmen Fluker, currently of Ferguson, an enterprising woman, officially “disabled” and receiving food stamps, who ran a brothel type strip club in her house. Â She was arrested Friday on suspicion of promoting prostitution. Â From stltoday:
A tipster told police that Fluker hosted parties at the one-story brick bungalow in the 400 block of Warfield Avenue, search warrants revealed.Â The parties featuring nude dancers, a dancing pole, liquor sales, drugs and a VIP room for private dances.
It turned out that the VIP room belonged to Fluker’s teenage son, and that he was the bartender at the private parties, but one has to admit that the woman knows what people will pay for.
This is not the first time Fluker has been connected to strip clubs and prostitution. Â It seems that in 2011, her house in another North St. Louis County suburb was raided where she and her then-husband were in the business of running a different “social club.” Â Fluker faces five years in jail and a $250,000 fine.
