Full story: Lowell Sun 118
That girl walking the streets around Armory Park in the Lower Highlands on Saturday night wasn't a prostitute, and if you pulled up thinking she was, you landed in handcuffs pretty quickly. Full Story

What a wate of tax dollars, what do you figure it cost to set up this sting and the fines probably won't be that much either.

I was disapointed that the Sun left out the fact that she was wearing a "sophmore 69" t-shirt.

There was quite a selection out there Sat. night.
I was driving down Appleton around 8 and there were more than a few out. 1 of them wasn't too bad looking, but the other few....NASTY!!

Especially the one in front of Tedeschi,she had CRACK written all over her!!

All of them do.
They turn tricks to get $$ to get high, not because they like being prostitutes.
If they were good looking and free of drugs, don't you think they'd go to Vegas and make more $$.

You don't want these stings because YOU are probably one of the guys they missed.

Unfortunately you can't catch them all. They are on all different street corners. So 11 caught, how many haven't been caught? I think the sting may send a message. The PD is watching. I see them walking on westford street and it's not like they are hiding what they are there for, they will actually slow cas down!

There are alot worse crimes than prostitution.
Don't make it out to be a capital offense.

I agree with LowLife, i meant Lowell4life hehe.

These guys are just unfortunate and down,dirty dumbasses. Who seem to get off by picking up strangers. And the wheel keeps on churning.

Guy needs ass.

Prostitute needs drugs.

Drug dealers need customers.

Police need criminals.

And next weekend lets do it all over again. It'll never end.

I agree.
There is no reason why this occupation shouldn't be legal.

Exactly. It's not like they're robbing banks, carjacking, murdering, or raping, or kidnapping.All they're doing is paying for sex. Whats the difference between a guy paying a hooker $50 to get a little action, and myself taking a chick out on a date to get a little action? Were both looking for the same thing, he's actually saving a few bucks cause dinner for 2 usually costs more than $50!

Why pay for sex? Can't these guys do it the old fashioned way and pick drunk chicks at the bar?!

I once went to JJ Boomers (on Pawtucket Blvd) on a Saturday night with some friends and that places is LOADED with drunk older women. You know the kind. Hair sprayed up in the air. Too tight jeans from the 80's and a fondness for Bon Jovi and Motley Crue. Sure they were sort of nasty and very pervy cougars, but they were much better than what I have seen driving down Appleton St.

Those men are obviously too ugly to get a girl that way. A hooker has no preference.

Anyone else notice that out of 11 people arrested, 8 of them are from Lowell?

Stop blaming us "out-of-towners" when most of the johns are in fact locals.

For some reason, I don't think Bronson is the dummy here...
