Stranger declares Bainbridge “Brothel Island”

Wow, only a few hours after posting my story on Bainbridge Police’s discovery of a brothel operating on Bainbridge, the Stranger’s Slog blog put up a post entitled “Brothel Island.”

Here’s what one Slog commenter had to say about the clumsy clients who knocked on the wrong doors and crept through the wrong yards in search of the brothel:

The dumba**es who ruined everything by drunkenly stumbling (I’m taking a wild guess here) through the brothel’s neighborhood should be publicly flogged by the responsible johns who just lost their good thing.

  1. He/she was criticizing the insensitive idiots knocking on the wrong doors, not “The Island”.

    Bainbridge has a few idiosyncrasies that are fun to jab at, but a brothel is definitely not characteristic of “The Island”. I think the header was to draw attention, not to besmirch the place.

  2. I agree. It’s a shame when blatant sensationalism in journalism end up giving decent places a bad reputation. We’ve seen it happen with Bremerton and Port Orchard time and again. When stories like the poor lug nut man were heard around the world. It’s a shame that Kitsap Sun and others try to profit through stories like these.

    The paper’s website gets a few more (thousand, maybe) hits, but we’re left with the loss of tourism dollars as a result.

  3. Pimps and hookers out of work. Lost ‘johns’. Unleashed dogs. Speed bumps. Graffitti. Smashed mailboxes. When will it end?
