Now where do I go?

Good to know that there is so little crime in St. Lucie County that the cops can chase prostitutes

Great! St. Lucie County's violent crime & burglaries are up and Mascara goes after victimless crime.

Typical government waste of resources at the cost to St. Lucie residents.

Mascara should be going after "real" crime such as rape, murder, battery, theft, and fraud.

Wow, I can't believe someone would go near anyone from Craig's List. Even the personal ads are full of degerates and STD ladden losers.

Child exploitation and adult prostitution are two different things.The first one is a CRIME & should be.The second one is a business transaction between consenting adults.

What a waste of resources!!!!! If they have no "real" crimes to fight perhaps the sheriffs office needs to eliminate some positions. This quote In addition, "members of the public have complained to the Sheriff's Office about those listings in Craigslist". Who are complaining? Sexually repressed 70 year olds? Legalize prostitution now and end this BS.

Great, as the economy collapses, government employees are on the job. When you get your property tax bill just remember all the dead weight you are carrying on your back. Not just the wages; you're on the hook for these jokers pensions. Now here is the real laugh; the Sheriff needed to crack down on internet prostitution in order to protect the established "massage parlors" that pay him protection money to keep operating.
