Missouri's anti-stripping bill is tearing the local exotic dancing community apart. C'mon, ladies. Just because you can't bare your beautiful, beautiful bouncing breasts doesn't mean you should stab each other.

Early last Friday, a 29-year-old exotic dancer was accused of stabbing a 27-year-old dancer with an eyeliner wand or pencil, according to the Star. The stabbing occurred at probably the worst named club in Kansas City, Baccala, 4704 Independence Avenue. Hmm, that address looks familiar. Probably because it's the old home of Gerry's Silver Slipper. Different name, same troubles.



The stripper-on-stripper violence was backstage and no one's saying how the fight started other than it took place while the women were changing clothes. The victim had four wounds and was reportedly treated and released from a hospital. Police have forwarded the case to the prosecutor's office.

The club is apparently being run by someone who didn't win a spelling bee. Here's how Baccala's website describes the club:

"A cut above the rest. A laid back Hip Hop and R&B atmosphere

(sic.)" The site also says: "From batchular (sic) parties to birthday

parties we can accomodate (sic) your needs."


A cut above indeed.

Gerry's Silver Slipper changed names after a whole host of trouble.

In August 2010, Deonta

R. Taylor was sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing two men outside of

troubled strip club in

February 2009. In June of this year, a jury convicted

the 32-year-old of two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of

armed criminal action for killing Drell

D.

Fisher and Reginald L. Barnes outside of the club on

February 6, 2009.



Police found the bodies of Fisher and

Barnes, both 33 and from KCK, shot

to death in the

parking lot outside of the club. 

Taylor

was was picked out of a photo lineup and records at Gerry's Silver

Slipper showed Taylor's driver's license was used to get into the club

at 2:11 a.m. on February 6.

​Taylor's defense attorney

reportedly argued that her client's license

was stolen and eye witnesses weren't trustworthy.

This

post about the deaths of Barnes and Fisher set off a flame war

between two women claiming to be Fisher's

girlfriend.
 
In October 2009, security guards at Gerry's got into a gunfight with a

drive-by shooter. No one was injured.

Kenneth L. Frazier also pleaded

guilty to felon in possession of a firearm charges; Frazier, who was

working as a DJ at the Silver Slipper, allegedly shot a man outside of the

club.

In March 2009, liquor control shut down the club for 66 days after a

20-person brawl in January of that year that ended with three people

stabbed.
