What's wrong with this picture? A year long "sting" that nets 9 misdemeanors, all men! What did this travesty cost the taxpayers? And, what reverse sexism. It would have been easier and cheaper to go to the source of these adds and arrest the prostitutes, and shut down the provider of these adds for acting as the pimp for these hos. I guess women are ALWAYS the victims in a politically correct society!

I guess that government will spend any amount of money to supress small business. On the one hand, government has spent years, forming bureau,,setting up boards and advertising lavishly on getting women into the workplace and guaranteeing their rights, and then under Obama they have performed a 100 degree turnaround, in order to force them out of business. Shameful!

Actually, Obama is quite supportive of women in the workplace if they have the right qualifications. For example if they are handy with pipe bombs, are able to keep military recruiters off elitist, left-wing college campuses or are outspoken advocates of abortion on demand at taxpayer expanse, women have fared well in the Obama administration.

Yes ,I understand that his favorite cheer squad is the ladies of Code Pink. And except for one small flaw, he loves best ,the woman who hates her native land, Michele. That flaw involves her not telling him the correct age of his daughter.

Thanks Amy, PC has turned this issue like so many others. Prostitution should be legalized in my opinion.

Legalize prostitution & tax the providers like they do in Canada!!! The crime rates will drop, pimps will be put out of business, and the gov't won't be broke anymore. There. Problems solved!!!

The reality of police work with regard to prostitution is that prosecuting prostitutes encourages pimps to pray on children immune to prosecution. Prosecuting the pimps is all but impossible due to the psychological hold they have on their victims and in many cases the bribes that they have payed to stay in business. Prosecuting local residents gives police the appearance that they are working on the problem without actually disrupting the barge trade that is the core of the "business" Your statement seems ignorant of the fact that the majority of the women you disdain here are taken at age 14 or younger and reared to be devoted to their captors. Why can people understand when the Talliban captures someone and forces them to spout America hating Allah loving speech but a woman abducted from home.... f*%# them hos..... sad.
