    Now only if they would go undercover and arrest 11 muggers with guns… Seems like that’d be a greater help…

  • Victim-less crime. Women are prostitutes to their husbands and boyfriends. “Give me the credit card and I give you sex later tonight’; no difference.

    While I think prostitution should be 100% legal and regulated, the reality is that while it’s illegal, trafficking of women and children can get a foothold as is the situation now. Thus arrests of John’s should continue, as much as it kills me to say that. Tinder, gentlemen.

    these prostitutes are necessary to keep your mind off of the real prostitutes, the lobbyists working in broad daylight.
