Take Action Now!
Against The Death Chambers Of San Diego's
(JHR) Most psychologists define insanity as making the
same bad decisions over and over again and expecting different results.
Insanity is only one of the many terms that can be used to define what is
going on inside of San Diego's three gay bathhouses. The three bathhouses
in question are Club San Diego, located at 3955 Fourth
Ave. in Hillcrest, 2200 Club at 2200 University Ave. in North Park,
and Vulcan Steam & Sauna at 805 W. Cedar St. in
Downtown San Diego. Organized crime, biological
terrorism through the intentional spread of AIDS, male prostitution,
pornography, and extreme illegal drug trade are some of the other terms
that might be used to describe the dark activities at these three
crumbling palaces of destruction.
Perhaps, more problematic, is the refusal of law
enforcement, San Diego's District Attorney, San Diego's City Attorney, or
Councilwoman Toni Atkins whose district contains the bathhouses, to
enforce that laws regulating these illegal businesses. Vulcan Steam &
Sauna is located directly across the street from Monarch Elementary School
and immediately across the street from the County Administration
Building. Club San Diego is located less than 1,000 feet from Florence
Elementary School in direct violation of city ordinances. 2200 Club is
located next door to an apartment building in direct violation of city
In all three instances, Councilwoman Atkins has
refused to take action to protect the citizens of her district from these
illegal enterprises. District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis has taken no
action against the bathhouses, even though the violations have been
occurring since she took office in 2002. Both Atkins and Dumanis are
practicing lesbians and have demonstrated a complete unwillingness to
investigate businesses located within the gay community. Even more
troubling is the fact that Councilwoman Atkins was the beneficiary of
numerous campaign donations in her Year 2000 campaign for the City
Council from F Street porn store employees. F Street Corp. is the owner
of the property leasing 2200 University to its current tenant, Bob Smith.
The police department refuses to charge the
bathhouse owners for their violating city codes. The James Hartline
Report has filed numerous complaints with San Diego Vice on the bathhouse
violations and each time Vice's response has been that the bathhouse
violations do not fall under their jurisdiction. In this week's edition
of the Gay and Lesbian Times (www.gaylesbiantimes.com/?id=5432),
it was reported that San Diego police officers were called to Club San
Diego to respond to an apparent drug overdose. The patient was found
conscious and breathing, but rushed to Mercy Hospital. The police
department mysteriously did not file a report on the incident.
Nicole Murray Ramirez, the transvestite
porn-promoter, who writes a weekly column for the Gay and Lesbian Times is
promoting an illegal nude male contest in this week's edition (www.gaylesbiantimes.com/?id=5456).
The Mr. Nude San Diego Contest is the featured event on August 4, 2005 at
the bathhouse 2200 Club. San Diego Municipal code requires all nude
entertainers to obtain a special police permit, thus the male nude
competition at the bathhouse is illegal. Even more immoral, is the fact
that Ramirez is the Chairman of the Gay and Lesbian Advisory Board to San
Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne. The idea that Mr. Lansdowne is
allowing a person to "advise" him, while he is promoting an illegal nude
contest is as degrading as it gets for America's Finest City.
It would appear that the City Attorney Mike
Aguirre is refusing to take action against the illegal activities going on
at 2200 Club. In February, Aguirre issued a letter to 2200 Club ordering
them to cease and desist from all sexual activities or he would take legal
action against them. Not only did they not stop the illegal sex
activities, as defined in an article in the Union Tribune by investigative
reporter Kristen Green (www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20050224/news_7m24spa.html),
but 2200 Club has increased such illegal activities by hosting nude
contests. The City Attorney's office has taken no action against the
illegal activities going on in 2200 Club.
The Taxpayer's Great Burden.
In 2004, San Diego County saw an
increase of over 400 new AIDS cases, costing the taxpayers approximately
$20 million in increased publicly funded medical costs. The three
bathhouses in San Diego continue to allow an evil breeding ground for new
disease transmission, illicit drug use and unsafe sexual practices. While
the city of San Diego continues to issue a new monthly health emergency
due to the HIV and Hepatitus epidemics, thus allowing the distribution of
hypodermic needles to drug addicts, law enforcement continues to plague
the taxpayers by refusing to enforce the laws regulating the bathhouses.
Tell San Diego City Officials and Law Enforcement
to STOP! the illegal activities going on in the illegal bathhouses of San
Diego. Tell the police to stop the illegal Mr. Nude San Diego Contest
from occuring at 2200 Club. Tell the City Council, City Attorney and
District Attorney to shut down the illegal
operations of the three bathhouses.
