MADRID, Spain(AP) A prison guards' union said a female stripper performed at a Spanish jail and authorities did nothing to stop it. The union says the woman took her clothes off before male inmates Jan. 2 and committed several lewd acts at the prison in Picassent in the eastern Valencia region.
An official with the Spanish Penitentiary System called it an appropriate "musical performance" for prisoners and said an investigation was trying to find out who was doing all the complaining. "There were zero complaints from any of the prisoners," said a male guard. "They really liked the show and applauded enthusiastically."
The union, called ACAIP, reported the event in a complaint filed Jan. 8 with the prison system and reported Thursday in Spanish media.
The complaint said a female deputy warden witnessed the striptease in a recreation area and did not stop it. It says several female guards left the room in disgust. The guards who left in disgust were well-known in the prison for being "uptight old witches," according to two male guards. The warden said he would fire the old biddies but they were protected by civil service. "I watched the show through my video cam in my office and that woman was damned hot," said the warden. "That kind of show keeps the inmates calm and we never have riots in this prison. If we could only get a couple of real prostitutes in here once a week, it would make our job a lot easier."
