Why do prostitutes cry rape only when they get robbed? They went to the hotel to have sex with the dude. I mean it is what you do for a living. I can understand being pissed that you got robbed, but you're a wh*re so I'm not gona feel bad for you. My heart goes out to real rape victims, but these girls are just robbery victims. Keep in mind, if he hadn't robbed them but did have sex with them would they have said they were raped??? No cuz b*tches got paid.

If you look at this as a business transaction, it is a robbery. A prostitute's willingness to offer sex comes with the agreement of payment. When no payment is offered then there is no agreement and therefore was performed unwillingly. This is rape.

Regardless of your views, The fact that prostitutes often are often looked down upon doesn't make them less human. Anyone who rapes may have done so before or may in the future escalate or may have been involved in other crimes. If his next victim is your wife , sister or daughter you will have wished he had been prosecuted and off the street.

Facts of the matter are he is a serial killer waiting to happen. He had control of these women from the first stroke of the keyboard. He is called a sexual predator. They are out there and dangerous. These women put themselves into the wolves den by their chosen profession alone. But the facts of the matter are that he held two women at gunpoint, tied them up, took their money, abused them physically and sexually and believed he could get away with it. He only chose prostitutes because they were easier to lure in. That doesn't mean He won't work harder in the future. He should be monitored very closely for the rest of his life.

That's the funniest thing ever. That's not a rape, but it is a robbery because they were not paid for their services.

I agree. If a prostitute walks in to a bad situation and trys to leave and he has sex with her anyway it's rape. It's pretty simple. No means no...no matter what the situation may be.

Did any of you ever stop to consider maybe they were not worth paying for? Maybe he was gonna pay them for performing sexual acts with him, but maybe they just laid there like they were dead. Why should he have to pay them for that? That is not a fair trade practice.
