THUMB AWARD PORNO MANIA IN ARLINGTON

Thumbs Down to Arlington City Councilman Bill Snider for his proposal requiring video rental shops doing business in Arlington to record and give police the names of customers who rent X-rated movies. At a recent work session city of-ficials agreed that such records should be made available to law-enforcement authorities to ensure that customers are at least 17 years old and to discourage people from seeking X-rated movies within their city limits. It’s one thing for city officials to attempt to rid a community of what its citizens feel to be pornography. It’s quite another thing to attempt to enforce morality by using constitutionally questionable means.
