Spanish police protesting “deplorable” working conditions in Valencia hired go-go dancing strippers to stand on the picket line with them.
About 200 police officers are currently protesting 30-year-old guns, a lack of vehicles, obsolete bulletproof vests, and old uniforms, according to union officials.
Strippers were hired to wear underwear and union t-shirts, in an effort to display the force’s lack of new apparel.
The protest was organized after four officers were injured in a traffic accident, when the 17-year-old police van they were driving had brake trouble.
The Town Hall in Valencia says it wasn’t the old vehicle that was the problem -- it was an error by the driver.
A Valencia official told reporters that the police department has “everything it needs to carry out its duty.”
