Shouldn't Norwalk Police be focusing on the rampant street level drug dealing going on instead of helping Westport Police with prostitution arrests?

Maybe Mayor Moccia and Chief Rilling need to tell their vice unit commander to focus on the REAL PROBLEM in Norwalk......guns, drugs, and youth gangs.

So what? Not an impressive arrest. Stop screwing around and go after the real criminals. This is a waste of time and tax dollars.

wtf....cops can't make any other arrests, so they read porno(to set up the girls) and then go and get a massage. Lets lay off the supervisor who thought this one up instead of wasting more tax dollars.

you've got to be kidding me. my wife offers me massages all the time. you're telling me i should have her locked in the slammer? and yea, so what...i pay her by the hour...we still love each other.

arrest the real criminals. the murderers, the drug dealers, the meter maids.

I thought this was America people? The land of the free? and if you want to charge someone a fee for a little eh-eh...you should be allowed to do so.

People. Its a different town. Its a different crime. If you knew that a hotel was being used as a whorehouse and the police did nothing about it, youd all be complaining.

It said erotic massage. If they meant rub one out, then they should say it. Erotic massage sounds like she might rub my back during a lapdance, which isn't prostitution.

Additionally, I think they should make prostitution temporarily legal until the economy improves.

Everyone else is f'king us for free already, why shouldn't someone make a few dollars? There SHOULD, however, be some sort of regulation on who gets a harlot's license, though.

you would be right if someone were calling and complaining that the hotel was being used as a brothel with all sorts of losers running in and out at all hours of the day and night and making a nuisance. but this was a selected sting operation. It only removes one or two women. It's a waste of resources. the girls werent bothering anyone.

Obviously not for the two women. But the cops get to pretend they're making a real difference by busting a couple of chicks. What a waste of $$$ and manpower.

As a retired P.O., what's your take on this kind of police action? Valid enforcement, or pretty much a waste of time?

I agree, except that it should be made permanently legal. Regulated for health reasons certainly, but legalizing prostitution would very likely severely reduce if not effectively eliminate much of the associated serious criminal conduct that goes along with the trade.

Its the world's 2nd oldest profession. Anyone here know which is the first? Sorry, no prize for correct answer.

Sorry I took so long, Libertarian. There's a philosophy in Policing called, "The Broken Windows theory" It means that if the Police neglect what some believe to be, "minor", matters,(broken windows) then more serious crimes will eventually occur. I've seen several Craig's list arrests in the past few months and it really boils down to a quality of life issue. The question you should ask yourself is do I want this type of behavior to be occurring in my community. The other side of the coin is of course, "nobody got hurt"! Actually I don't believe that to be true. Your community's reputation is being hurt and if prostitution is given free reign....what's next?

the christians don't care how much of our tax paying cash they use to lock up the sinners who have sinned against their lord and savior ... Allah (aka the lord, aka god, aka jesus, aka whatever).

The bible says hooking is wrong, therefore we MUST spend millions of dollars housing consenting adult men and women who dared to have sex and dared to exchange some financial reward for the sex.

GPD: I'm familiar with the theory of Broken Windows and it was essentially the theory that Giuliani adopted when he succeeded Dinkins as Mayor. By that time NYC was basically a complete shall we say latrine. But it took the Crown Heights riots to shift the tide.

Philosophically however, why shouldn't a man and a woman (I won't go into the other possible combinations) who may freely engage in consensual sex w/out compensation (other than dinner, a play and flowers) not be free to engage in a sex/money transaction? There's a very strong argument that because prostitution is illegal, it attracts and/or generates other more serious illegal and offensive conduct. Were it legal, those problems, such as gang activity, drug trafficking, gambling and extortion etc would likely diminish substantially if not effectively disappear altogether, leaving the parties to their contractual agreement that hurts no one and may in fact be beneficial to both the parties in that the transaction fulfilled a need each of them had.
