If you live in Detroit, it turns out the Contemporary Art Institute is the place to party, according to the Courthouse News Service. That is, until the police raid the joint:
Thirteen people say a shotgun-waving police “vice squad” in commando gear raided a members-only dance at the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit without cause and “shoved, kicked and hit” the museum’s “bewildered and terrified patrons.”
Represented by the ACLU, the 13 members of the Art Institute say the City of Detroit had no probable cause to suspect the “Funk Night” party was not properly licensed. The plaintiffs say the officers forcibly detained 130 patrons and seized 40 cars, some of which were not returned.
They say the police did not announce themselves as officers when they stormed the art gallery and ran through the space pointing guns and yelling commands such as “Lie down on the fucking ground!”
