A Sedgwick County District Court grand jury began an inquiry last week into whether area sex shops are violating obscenity laws. But if this jury is like ones in other cities, nothing will happen — other than the jurors will spend a lot of time looking at porn. The reason is that most jurors are uncomfortable defining and dictating an obscenity standard for the entire community. Plus, the motive behind this grand jury seems to be shutting down the sex shops, not removing certain materials. If so, that wonâ€™t fly.
