Interesting how the pictures/names of these people have been posted, when they haven't been tried and convicted. I would love to see one of them get their charge thrown out, and then sue WTNH for libel. Maybe the police resources would be better used toward serious crime, rather than this bogus entrapment scheme to catch these minor offenders.

Hey, I would think with a name like "Sooksavad Simmalavong" he'd be a real hit with the chicks. I wonder what the heck that name means in his native country of Cockroachastan. Could it be that it means "Little yellow buck toothed idiot who gets caught with a skank who has diseases that haven't even been discovered yet"

I think the State should legalize, regulate and tax sex for money. Why not? The excuse for the stings and devotion of manpower and funding toward VICE is to curb a drug/crime problem as it starts. Ok, that's fair...but has the drug/crime problem improved? No. The neighborhood is still garbage and prostitution still runs rampant both in form of street walkers and craigslist mongers. Therefore regulation and taxation (like alcohol, tobacco and firearms) would bare more fruit. Do it like NV. The State gets money, the hen houses are inspected, girls/guys are tested and it becomes a legitimate profession much like the days of yore. Is it moral? That's subjective, and while I don't necessarily agree with the "profession", I also don't agree with dumping money in a failing cause: war on drugs and war on sex for money. VICE is failing or at best having little effect.
Eliminate drugs by going after the source. Legalize/tax/Regulate Pot = State becomes rich.
Legalize/tax/Regulate prostitution = control the drugs and crime.

I know it must be difficult with a limited intellect and mental capacity, but by saying they shouldn't do it, you are implying that they were proven guilty of the charges. If you read the article, you'd see they were just charged. Also, with these stings, a good portion of these charges are dropped.

Now, shut down the computer before you electrocute yourself

Yes, well we all can't have cool names like Jethro, Elmer and Inbredumbass but cut the guy some slack. Besides, didn't we discover the last unknown venereal disease on your mother's flea infested snatch?

You're right, society would be at such a loss without these fine upstanding citizens. I'm suprised to see you posting, I didn't know they had internet at CVH. Thanks for sharing your rapier wit, obviously, multiple syllables must be quite a challenge for one as cranially deficient as yourself.

"Opinions that are derogatory, attack other users, offer unsubstantiated facts..." Hmmmmnnn. it seems this joke of a new source isn't following its own rules. Remember all you bible thumpers, these people all have some story to tell as to why they did what they did. The girl probably needed to make ends meet and didn't or couldn't work at walmart in order to do that. Perhaps a story on that would be better suited for us dumbed down americans.

The problem is you don't know if the prostitutes are slaves or not. It's not regulated.

They could be slaves to drugs or just plain owned by captors.

The news has every right to expose the people that showed up hoping to take advantage of the girls' situation.

I believe in Cockroachastan Sooksavad Simmalavong means Redneckk. You guys probably got a lot in common. Sorry he got caught with your wife, I can understand your anger.
