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.
even drunk chicks have standards. Prostitutes don't.

Just leave them be! I love Westford Street in Lowell! The sights are terrific, I do my laundry at The Lowell Station and go next door to Capt. John's for a few drinks while I wait. The street walking entertainment is the best part. Most of the time they are attractive and of course I've had my fun a couple of times. Great rates, no headaches. The best part is after you ... you don't have to talk to them or listen to them. What's the best part about dating a homeless drug addict hooker from Lowell? You can drop her off anywhere!:) Love Lowell Ma.
Seeing as you had "you're fun a couple of times" sir,would you mind offering up some of your choice places to pick up the lovely ladies of the night that Lowell has to offer? Capt. Johns/Westford st. area is well known.As is Furey's on Fletcher st.(especially the back parking lot).But could you point us in the direction of a lesser known area? Maybe when you were "dropping one off" one night, you found a new crackpot....I mean jackpot place to pick one up!!

This is a shame really. Why don't we get interviews with these men and perhaps their wives as well. Maybe we can get some real in site as to why these people would actually want to pay a prostitute money for sex. I mean how do we know these guys wives haven't been holding out for them for months on end. These guys have needs too. So do the hookers. Everybody needs something. the cops obviously had nothing better to do. They too have needs, like being employed. They figured catching these guys doing these offensive and violent crime possible would be the best person to harass. I could not think of a better way to spend tax payer money. Keep these bums off the street. Especially all the out of towners. HAHA

Interview their wives? Don't you think they're already hurting from the fact that their husbands got caught with a prostitute.

I honestly think that what the cops did was great! I applaud them for bring down 11 men, doing something they're not supposed to do. I do not condone infedility.

So what if their wives put out. A women is not always there for sex. A relationship is based on trust, and obviously those men don't believe in trust.

Okay, so those men were looking for sex, only, from hookers...what make you or me think that they wouldn't have the audasity to turn to little kids for sex, once they can't find any hookers?

If you think I'm wrong, please enlighten me.

People who buy apts, homes, or condos on Westford st,Middlesex st.,,Jackson st., etc.,etc. If they don't like the element in those areas,too bad, so sad. It didn't just appear overnight.Thats their problem. Like I said earlier,there is a lot worse you could have hanging around then a couple of hookers.

The always reliable Lowell Police Dept. Good job

Married or not, in-town or out. Just don't think for one moment someone isn't watching you. Especially their pimps.Ok, Ok so there maybe no pimp involve but their has to be some type of enforcer who need to get paid. You think you can just run up on them and rob them too, wrong move buddy.

But I do strongly agree with lowlife. hehe there are important matter to be handled.Like tazing there nutts so they can learn.

Where the hell have I been? I've been married a year and a half now, and I didn't know it was MY job to put out! But then again, I only see the husband 5 mins every weekdays, and at lease 5 hours a weekend.
