I find it interesting that a subject like this seems to stop the blog for awhile.
Seems that most people have no comment at all.
I think that people who run for public office should be asked if they are for or against human trafficking. That would be a good litmus test.(I think it would be surprising how many people would not be able to answer)

I just bought a home here. Please don't tell me he represents the population.

I wouldn't say he represents the population, but he might be a snapshot of a type of folks here.
One thing to remember is that the Ken Barrett sting was a STING. There was no actual girl he was communicating with. It was the police. Some will say that isn't fair. Or entrapment. But he did go for the bait. So it was a legitimate sting as I see it.
Does this do much to curtail actual activity in the area? That's A good question. I've been propositioned quite a few times in the Roseburg area. I don't think the police put a high priority on actual adult prostitution in the Roseburg area. And underage activity is a spin-off of the adult activity by my observation.
People should be very cautious of families or group enclaves who have a casual attitude toward prostitution. More serious criminal activity can be hidden in the mix..
