Victimless crime? Well let’s see how victimless this scenario is. Hooker A gives John Cheater a very highly contagious venereal disease. John goes home and passes it on to his unsuspecting wife, who it turns out is asymptomatic. John then has contact with Hooker B who is disease free, at least for now, and passes disease to her. She in turn passes it on to the other 3to 5 other Johns she will service tonight. Now Hooker A has serviced 4 other Johns who also have had sex with another individual thus passing the disease along perhaps to girlfriends, wives or boyfriends. Now back to John and his deal with his wife . Wife finds out that John is cheating and divorces him. She re-marries, still asymptomatic and passes it to Hubby #2 who is mad as Hades and shots her because he thinks she is cheating. Repeat that with say just 10 hookers who service on the average 3-5 Johns if they are not the low class back alley types who service as many as 20 per day. And look at the victimless crime now. How many people will become victims of these so called victimless criminals? Think about it for a bit and then see if it’s victimless. Also check CDC reports on venereal disease, all the different varieties and how many cases are reported each month/year. It ain’t so victimless.

So, no drug arrests? Sounds like a waste of police time. When our police force spends their time on something as petty as solicitation, I wonder if they really think they spent their time wisely or if it is just a reminder to the community that we are out there "Fighting Crime". Geez.

If two consenting adults want to give each other venereal diseases while doing it in positions that's still technically illegal, that's their deal. This is about as pointless as the whole video poker crusade.

Legalization and regulation could not fully cure, but it could significantly decrease the so called "victims" of prostitution. Take the prohibition of alcohol in the early 20th century. Crime and violence involving the black marketing of alcohol skyrocketed. No one can say that the relegalization of alcohol produced no victims, but the prohibition era proves what the outlawing and undergrounding of a product or service will produce. Legalization of prostitution can provide support systems to rehabilitate addicts, test prostitutes for communicable diseases, and otherwise "clean up" the practice. And please spare me the moral high ground argument. It is obviously going on now, as this story shows, but a better system would lessen the adverse impact of the practice community-wide. The police cannot waste their sparse funding on the "vice squad" to rid the community of these "perverts" without hurting the funding of other much more important areas of enforcement of the law.

Whether or not the men have legal status in the US
are being discriminated against the men with Anglo Saxon names.

This leaves open game for the ACLU to walk right in and
delare the magistrate was biased in his or her bonds.

If any person knows that they have HIV or AIDS, it is
their ethical and responsibility to tell their partner
that they are positive.

Some states have made that law. Several women have
won cases where the man was charged with assault with a
deadly weapon. Happened to be a dentist. Imagine that.

It would not make any difference if it was a prostitution sting or not, it is called having the LEOs
try to stop the DIRTY needles, DIRTY sex, and the aftermath.

Every city has this problem. The police have to go into this horrible scenario to help the people that are
law-abiding citizens.
If you do not like it, you don't have to worry about it.
There is another way the officers catch the "johns" soliciting and submit their pictures on the news.
Watch out whom you talk to your picture might be on live TV.

Keep griping, and it may BITE you back big time. No pity from the posters.

I was at the supermarket today and around a dozen mexican guys walked in, bought a drink or chip, then cashed their paycheck. The store gave them cash - didn't even ask for an ID. I went to pay with a check and they asked me for an ID.

If they want to bust the johns they should also go after the hookers too.

I happen to know that this whole sting was due to some very unfavorable press the Police Department got in the Forums of The Hendersonville Times News Newspaper.

If you want to know what motivated this sting operation go to the Hendersonville Times News website and read the brutal verbal beating the Police department got from the citizens of Hendersonville for busting 3 hookers without busting the Johns.

It actually is quite funny.
