Striptease at Chicago federal jail
For some inmates when they can’t go to a strip club the strip club goes to them.
The roof of a parking garage across the street from a federal jail in Chicago has served as a stage with gyrating women performing seductive dances in front of prisoners and shocked neighbours at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, a 27-story jail operated by the federal Bureau of Prisons
“I come from a town of 300 people in the middle of the fields in Minnesota, so it was weird, really weird,” said Briana Fitzgibbons, a graduate student who witnessed one show in September.
Prisoners attorneys confirmed they have witnessed some of the shows from their offices in a neighbour building.
One source even claimed they have been taking place for decades.
One of the federal prison gang leaders named Thaddeus “T.J.” Jimenez claimed that some of the shows were performed for him by a woman who was “showing her love” for him. The woman would sometimes hold a sign while performing reading “Free T.J.”.
Both Jimenez’s attorney and a spokesperson for the US attorney’s office declined to comment.
As for the shows, they will apparently go on, as an executive for the firm who operates the garage said he did not know about the seedy performances and prison officials admit they can’t do much on their part.
“We are aware of the situation and have notified the owner of the property, but because it is private property, the Bureau of Prisons has no authority to remove people from the property,” a spokesperson from the Bureau of Prisons said.
