Visions, Madison Strip Club, Should Be Run Out Of Madison


The reports of a shooting where four people were injured, along with the knifing of another this weekend at Visions, a strip club on Madison’s East Side, is just the latest evidence of the type of people who gather there, and the crime they create.  In addition to fostering the image of women as sex objects the business is a strain on the resources of this city we call home.

When the data is computed it shows that the area around the strip club has more than one police call per day.  Thus far in 2018 there have been 446 police calls to the area.  When such a listing of police calls was shown to be the case for a troubled apartment complex on the West Side it was soon reported Mayor Paul Soglin put his office front and center in amassing information and plotting  a resolution.   Nothing less should be done now for a creepy place where women strip down for the most prurient interests of men who seemingly can not create healthy relationships in their lives.

This past weekend those injured in the shooting were a 42-year-old Chicago man shot in the torso, a 46-year-old Madison man, and a Visions employee, a 35-year-old Oregon man, and a 31-year-old Milwaukee woman.

People correctly call attention in our city to the crimes from teens and young adults.  But there is no way to deny that Visions is a source of crime which impacts that region of the city.  The crime there is now also impacting business, too.  It was announced that in response to an increase in crime, including this shooting, the Kwik Trip store nearby will be closing early for the safety of their employees.

The bottom line is that Visions is a source of crime and embarrassment. I understand the zoning matter and attempt to sell the place.  But when talking about that area and crime one must  address a strip club that should be run out of the city!

    “…a strip club on Madison’s East Side, is just the latest evidence of the type of people who gather there…”

    “…a strip club that should be run out of the city!”

    Wow! seems like someone is in another of his judgemental snits! It sounds like someone has been barred from an establishment and is trying to get even! Typical leftist “I don’t like it so it must be banned” instead of just not going there which is your choice.

    Shootings are terrible, but why not blame the shooter, instead of everyone else – oh heck, I forgot, that’s the far left whacko’s way! Blindly blame on!

  2. Here is some news for you Smokey. As a gay man I can assure you no has ever had to tell me to leave. Second, the city council is making moves to stem the problem. Third, people who live in the area have a say in their safety and peace of mind, too.

    Fourth, as a Republican does not a smut club run against your family values lingo. Oh…no…wait…you support the sexual predator in the White House with small hands.
