Hotel Manager as Everyday Civil Rights Hero

Via Hotel Hotsheet, the General Manager of the Renaissance Tulsa was arrested for refusing to give police a list of all hotel guests.

An anonymous report to the police suggested that drugs were in a room number that didn’t exist. So the cops asked for records on everyone staying at the hotel.

    “The manager was very concerned about providing a list of all guests’ names and addresses,” Fugazi stated. “The request was so broad and unique, she felt compelled to contact senior management, which she was attempting to do when she was arrested.”

Frighteningly, the police request was apparently consistent with a local law (such things vary by jurisdiction, but it appears to be fairly common).
