Capital Video places job ads on Monster.com, a large employment site. We recently asked Monster to reject these ads, and we invite the public to contact Monster and support our request. We wrote:
I would like you to consider removing all job ads for Met-Cap Management/Capital Video from your site. Capital Video runs a large chain of hard-core porn shops. It is owned by a convicted criminal with mafia ties. Its latest brush with the law is taking place in Springfield, MA, where the police commissioner is seeking a hearing over license violations regarding drug sales and lewd activity on or around the store premises.
Capital Video makes its money from racist magazines (e.g. World of Black Bondage), magazines that glorify the physical restraint and whipping of women, movies like “Use Em’ Abuse Em’ & Lose Em’ #9” (“Ride along as we pick up ordinary young women f***’em senseless and dump’em! It’s all good clean fun!”), stories about incest, and other abusive fare. We document this in detail at http://nopornnorthampton.org/…
